Brief: In open source philosophy, you share source code. Why not share data along the same line? That’s what Linux Foundation’s Community Data License Agreement tries to address. I am here at the first day of Open Source Summit 2017 Europe edition, in Prague. Things have just started.

Best New Linux Desktop Environments by https://is.gd/ZdPf4q

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.

If you’re new to Linux, you might not know exactly which Linux distribution to use. This is understandable, as there are many, many different types of Linux distributions out there. They all serve different purposes and are geared towards different types of people.

It is because of this, we’ve decided to break down popular Linux operating systems, talk about what they’re for, and how to settle on a distribution. Keep in mind, this isn’t just for people completely brand new to Linux.

How to speed up DNS caching on Linux machines with dnsmasq by https://is.gd/xDKMgl

Chances are, you’re looking to squeeze out as much performance from your Linux servers and desktops as possible. This is especially so with regards to networking. With Linux, there are so many tweaks you can undertake to optimize a machine, it’s mind blowing.

One such tweak that can significantly decrease your DNS lookups is by adding dnsmasq into the mix.

Dnsmasq is a lightweight DHCP and DNS caching nameserver. Unlike BIND, dnsmasq is incredibly simple to get up and running. The benefits of adding this will be quite obvious (like your DNS queries getting dramatically faster).
