Google has open-sourced an npm publishing tool for heightened security across organizations’ client libraries. The tool, Wombat Dressing Room, aims to reduce the security risks associated with the automation of npm publishing.

“On my team, a small number of developers manage over 75 Node.js libraries,” Benjamin Coe, developer engineer at Google, said in an announcement on Friday (January 10).

Linux Developers Start Poaching Microsoft Users After Windows 7 End of Support





Windows 7 has officially reached the end of support, so users running it have three options to choose from: stick with Windows 7 and face the obvious security risks, upgrade to newer Windows, or migrate to a non-Windows platform. As far as the last option goes, Linux distro makers know how big this opportunity really is, so they started poaching Windows 7 users in an attempt to increase their install base.

After Canonical tried to lure Windows 7 users to install Ubuntu, a number of Korean companies developing their own custom Linux distros have launched similar campaigns specifically supposed to convince Microsoft customers to make the switch.

A New Desktop Theme Is Coming For Ubuntu 20.04 LTS





With Ubuntu 20.04 to see installation on many desktops (and servers) given its Long-Term Support status, Canonical and the Yaru community team have begun working on a successor to the Yaru theme for this Linux distribution release due out in April.

Yaru has been the default Ubuntu theme since 18.10 but now a year and a half later is time for some refinements. The Yaru design team was recently at Canonical’s London offices to work on the new theme.

Why Should You Use Linux?





When people debate which operating system is the best-either MacOS or Windows-not many mention the third option: Linux. Why is that? See, Linux has its own niche in the tech industry, but that’s it. Yes, you can use Linux as your daily driver, but learning Linux can take a long time depending on which distro, Linux’s word for “version”, you have.

But I’m not saying you shouldn’t use Linux. In fact, if you’re into technology at all, I recommend using Linux for a month or two just to see how it works and the things you can do with Linux. But what if you’re not that into tech? Here are several reasons why you should use Linux, if only for a limited time!

It’s a no to ZFS in the Linux kernel from me, says Torvalds, points finger of blame at Oracle licensing





Linux kernel jockey, Linus Torvalds, has taken time out to remind open source loyalists that he is no fan of the ZFS file system due, in part, to the sometimes tortuous nature of open source licensing. Torvalds was responding to a question late last week regarding a recent update to the Linux kernel breaking the third party ZFS module.

With his new non-sweary hat on, Torvalds patiently explained his position around out-of-tree components such as ZFS. In essence, they aren’t his problem. We imagine ensuring nothing breaks in the user space is challenging enough.
