That you hear, if you hear something, is nothing less than an advertising video of Microsoft Office 365 . I’ve got MuyComputerPRO, where they hung a few days ago. However, apologies for the auto play, which I have not realized until the time of this entry. By the way, what is this post?
Yesterday, as news of the expert was writing that he has given an earful the Linux desktop security, and knew that conflicting views would soon appear. For one, if someone comes in and says, “for that I stay on Windows” or similar, to me is like the sound of the rain. It’s there, but it does not bother me. The opposite view, the absolute denial, total lack of self-criticism , because if you criticize are the enemy, does concern me more. It’s what makes you sleep on your laurels and you end up eating.
Yesterday, in fact, I highlighted one of the cases analyzed by the expert-that of Qt, in which there was a disagreement about the alleged security flaw between the expert and the developers of Qt-as proof that not to believe it all because yes . But do the opposite, do not believe anything-or “and you more” – not only does not help to improve the Linux desktop is foolish.
expert study, which itself is a security analyst-recognized, does failure? Must uncover. Is alarmist needlessly? Same. Is there more or less, some novelty in what he says? You have to act on it, then. And best in these cases is that information flows free , as well as the code of the programs analyzed.
When new users coming to Linux, and virtually all do from Windows, begin to know how the system works and wildebeest Penguin (if we forget the latter), it usually take to realize that security in GNU / Linux is superior . For starters, the software management system using controlled repository (by default!), With all packages signed and ready to update all the software on your machine at a stroke … Windows Update, compared with that, it is a minimum.
Also, system management system, along with the permit system or full disk encryption … Windows 8 is a change for the better in all these points, but still does not reach the level of Linux-based systems, also have mostly fitted as standard tools like SELinux or AppArmor. No color , unless you pull additional tools normally only available to experts. Yet why believe that GNU / Linux is bulletproof , I think, as I say, somewhat unconscious.
All this stuff I’m dropping, as is evident, not going up. Change of pace to an article we published a few months, in which we talked about office automation, compatibility, Open Source, Microsoft Office … do you remember? It was a case of someone with the willingness to use open software, but unable to do so because real constraints on which we can discuss, but are still there. At this point I am in favor of helping things to change, not to deny the evidence.
On the latter issue, that of office with Microsft Office in between, we’ve talked more than once around here, and the same question is always this: while defeat or not enemy as far as applications and formats are concerned, would it be worth to have Microsoft Office on GNU / Linux (in my opinion, that it is not believed or ‘Tato’) or, at least, with an application much more compatible as WPS Office? My opinion, again (this is an opinion … just in case) is that yes, even at the risk that some of these applications star-who says Microsoft Office, says Photoshop, AutoCAD, etc.-could overshadow their alternatives Open Source. First, meet needs , and second, improve what needs to be improved.
I can come “complain” gaps GNU / Linux without treating me as a traitor to the cause? It’s something I ask myself every sees that touches me-or want-write to any of these sensitive issues. As the games. I believe that the arrival of Steam to Linux is decisive, although much remains to be at an acceptable level. And not the only one with that problem area. Do you know the BYOD phenomenon? Mindful of this video (watch in the second part out “the monster developers “):
So, I can say that? GNU / Linux or Open Source need a solid alternative to the comments? I can? Say, without going into the technical side, the only initiative in this direction with, redundant, some sense, is the Canonical with Ubuntu, Ubuntu Touch and others? These are rhetorical questions, but they are there for much kind of users. In short, can we talk unprejudiced deficiencies GNU / Linux? I do not understand people who find criticism in a free attack, and do not think that the benefit of a cause.
To end this has left me, I do not know exactly what it is pure and safe view (therefore subject to change or evolution, whichever you prefer), a detail: I know several cases of professionals who are returning GNU / Linux to Windows due to a lack of interoperability with mobile devices (specific applications), and when it comes to mobile devices in Spain, by 90%, we’re talking about Android. That is, Android offers more value when used in conjunction with Windows , with GNU / Linux. How is that possible? Well here’s the thing.
must be improved and criticism chew slowly, carefully, and act accordingly. You do not get to point “that will make you want to mourn,” but at least it doubt, right?yarpp-related-none” class=”yarpp-related
