Brief: We’ll have a look at Nuclear, one of the lesser known music players in Linux. It lets you stream music from a number of sources such as YouTube, SoundCloud etc. Although I do maintain a collection of good old mp3 files on my PC, I don’t disagree with the advantages of streaming music.

Endless OS 3.2 Review – The Offline Distro by https://is.gd/asbQz9

The developers have come out with a distro that targets mainly developing countries and also computers with no or limited internet access. So even without internet, you will have access to stuff like Wikipedia. The aim is to provide an operating system that comes with everything you will need.

Security Tools to Check for Viruses and Malware on Linux by https://is.gd/VLyo98

Wait, Linux needs antivirus and anti-malware solutions? I thought it was immune to such things. Perhaps a bit of clarification is necessary here. First and foremost, no operating system is 100 percent immune to attack. Whether a machine is online or offline, it can fall victim to malicious code.

Although Linux is less prone to such attacks than, say, Windows, there is no absolute when it comes to security. I have witnessed, first hand, Linux servers hit by rootkits that were so nasty, the only solution was to reinstall and hope the data backup was current. I’ve been a victim of a (very brief) hacker getting onto my desktop, because I accidentally left desktop sharing running (that was certainly an eye opener). The lesson? Even Linux can be vulnerable.
