If you’re a seasoned power user, you’ll likely find Elementary OS to be rather boring, closed off, and annoying. However, I have installed Elementary OS on machines of friends who are not very computer friendly, and they have had no problems for years now, without a single complaint.

How To Use VeraCrypt On Linux by https://is.gd/HFNBWZ

For years, TrueCrypt was the encryption tool of choice for Linux users. It worked well, and it did everything you could ever want. Then one day, the project was discontinued. Ever since then, Linux users have been scrambling to find an encryption tool that works as well.

For most, the best tool to use is VeraCrypt. The main reason that VeraCrypt stands out from the rest of the new encryption tools is that it is a “fork” from the old TrueCrypt code. This means if you’ve used TrueCrypt for years but want something that is actively maintained, you can install VeraCrypt on Linux and everything will continue to work.

Most Linux users have their own desktop environment preference. For example, I enjoy using MATE, where other users I talk with get a lot of value out of XFCE, GNOME or KDE. Yet it surprised me when I asked my Linux using friends what they thought of some of the “newer” Linux desktop environments.
