Reader Saifali has submitted desktops in the past to our Desktop Showcase, but this one's a fresh look, and we like it. If you dig it too -- or just the Antarctic landscape in it -- here's how you can bring the same look to your computer.
The cycle in which ideas turn into software is getting shorter and shorter. By and large, this is a good thing as new functions are delivered to users faster than ever before. But one of the consequences is software bugs are introduced and sometimes missed. I suspect part of the reason is testing cycles are being squeezed. This is part of the root cause, I think, as to why a two year old bug was introduced into Linux.
What do you do when you have three beautiful curved ultrawide displays? Mount them side-by-side for a glorious, pixel-packed super-wide experience, like elliotvs did with his workspace. Here's a closer look.
While not quite as good as O'Reilly's free programming eBook deal from last week, Humble's Linux and Open Source eBook bundle is more than respectable. You get three books for $US1 and depending on high you want to go, up to 12 in total, covering everything from Git to Nginx.

Yesterday was Pi Day, and what better way to celebrate everyone's favourite mathematical constant than by taking a look back at everyone's favourite cheap hobbyist computer, the Raspberry Pi. Since the launch of the Raspberry Pi, I've written an absurd number of guides, blogs and an already outdated book on the variety of projects you can do with it. I've learned a lot it that time.
A newly found Linux kernel security vulnerability dates back to 2005 and could potentially be exploited for kernel code execution and local privilege escalation. The flaw affects a number of distributions including Red Hat, Debian, OpenSUSE, SUSE and Ubuntu. Here's how to patch this flaw on your Linux systems.
If you are acquainted with the command line on Linux or Unix systems, you've probably punched in the wrong command by mistake more times than you'd care to admit. It's particularly frustrating when that mistake concerns shutting down the wrong machine, which can happen when you're SSHing into multiple virtual machines. molly-guard is a tool that prevents accidental shutdowns or reboots.
Our friend Dobbie03 makes some great-looking Linux desktops, and this one is no exception. Having recently moved back to Manjaro after a tryst with Arch, he built this desktop with a few easy-to-download components. Here's how you can set it up, too.
