Re: Firefox 68 esr

Every downloadable Firefox version is just archived directory "firefox". Extract it in ~ and that's all about installation.

Re: Gamma Ray Bursts From Black Holes *May* Exceed Speed Of Light

Re: Skidmap: a Linux-based malware which mines cryptocurrency on computers

That's really basically the same explanation I have read often before on this forum: be careful what software you install and what websites you visit. Dont go walking into dark alleyways... Yes. There is no differences between "good" software, "bad" software (and ugly, of course). Everything is jus...

Thanks for posting that link Philotux. It will keep me on guard. The article doesnt offer any particular advice for protection though, besides the warning not to download unknown files that are given root access. Try click on clickable word "Skidmap" inside article. Then you can read original techn...

Re: "Laptop too powerful for linux"

But here is the real kicker - when I told them I would be glad to install Mint on the new laptop they related to me they had asked about getting the laptop with Linux installed and were told by the sales person that the laptop that they needed was way "too powerful for linux" What's wrong? It's true.

I'm thinking Linux would be much harder to penetrate than Windows, if the base system was a solid security distro like Qubes, Parrot, or Tails.
Never heard somebody ask ransom for encrypted system, only for encrypted documents. Well, what the magical forces and who secure your "/home/you" ?
