    Compatibility.

    While it'd be great if you moved to Linux, you should be able to use Microsoft's OS for free (once paid for - as you did when you bought the device). You don't have to use Office365. (I think that's the name.) You can use another office suite, such as LibreOffice - which is both free and...

    Lubuntu 21.04 is available for download!

    Every time a new release dropped, I'd download it, check the manifest, and then test it - sometimes both in a VM and on bare metal. I'd open every application, change settings, change keyboard layout, change resolution, check translation, check power management, make sure every application...

    University Banned From Contributing To Linux Kernel For Intentionally Inserting Bugs

    They tried to submit holes into the live kernel project. That IS the problem. They tried to submit bugs/code with holes, knowingly and intentionally. Potentially impacting millions and millions of users. Malicious or not, there were legit security implications and legitimately intentional bugs...

    University Banned From Contributing To Linux Kernel For Intentionally Inserting Bugs

    Nobody thinks their intent is malicious. That was never a question. Of course it's not malicious. That'd never have passed the muster and there'd be a lot more turmoil if it had been.

    Lubuntu 21.04 is available for download!

    Oops! Good catch @f33dm3bits. I completely missed their question. I'm actually pretty occupied today, so I have a good excuse. Things are down to a dull roar at the moment, but the Lubuntu meeting will be in just another hour. The release notes are finally published...

    [Solved] Installation Issues

    At other sites, people may refuse to help you with that. I'll explain why. There is no '20.4'. It's 20.04 - and that is for yy.mm formatting. So, the year is 2020 and the month is April, or 20.04. I know what you meant, and they certainly knew what you meant, but they'll use it as an excuse to...

    Lubuntu 21.04 is available for download!

    Yes, it will have picom - but compton is still in the menu as picom depends on compton for now. It should leave files in your user directory alone. lsb_release -a No LSB modules are available. Distributor ID: Ubuntu Description: Ubuntu 21.04 Release: 21.04 Codename: hirsute

    Lubuntu 21.04 is available for download!

    In a few days it will offer you the chance to upgrade - assuming you have that setting enabled under 'release upgrade'. You can also force it. You can probably force it right now, but you'd be hammering on the servers when a bunch of other people are probably doing the same thing. After the...

    I have a feeling that there will be some scapegoats, and denied degrees due to ethics violations. I expect to see some people resigning and some people being let go if they refuse to resign.

    Lubuntu 21.04 is available for download!

    Also, if you have a beta installed, you *can* upgrade to the newest version by normal update methods. I did not know this until now. That's pretty handy.

    Lubuntu 21.04 is available for download!

    This one is kinda special to me. It's not that it's very different, it's that I devoted hundreds of hours to testing it. The release notes aren't even done yet, but you can download it from the official Lubuntu site. https://lubuntu.me/ There are still a few bugs, but nothing show-stopping...

    I've been keeping up with this, following along as more news comes out. So far, nobody has explained how this passed through the IRB.

    CPU level security threat. How can we protect ourselves?

    Your comments look kinda spammy. Are you a bot?

    Indeed, thus my title at the other link. What baffles me is how this research got approved. It demonstrates something is amiss with their research approval board. It clearly violates academic ethics. What I really want to know is how it got approved. The institution should not just be held...

    Keyboard issues with asus rog

    Yeah, I misread it as 20.04. I am out of ideas and have stuff to do this afternoon. I'll try digging around some more if nobody else finds anything.

    Keyboard issues with asus rog

    I know you tried newer kernels and I'd normally never suggest such a thing, but maybe take a few minutes to see if it happens on the daily 21.04 beta.
