FOSS LINUX AUTHOR
Hi! I'm Zohaib Ahsan, contributor to FOSS Linux. I'm studying computer science, I’ve learned a thing or two about operating systems that are based on Linux. This has made me join FOSS Linux where I can share what I have learned with the rest of the world. Not to mention — some major tea is going to be spilled as well — as I share with you the latest developments in the world of Linux.
Courtesy of open-source software, you could not only save a big amount of cash but also get the chance to make amendments to the code so that the application better fits your needs. When it comes to video games, most of the popular titles won't be open-source. With that being said, if you look hard enough, you're going to find a plethora of open-source games on the Internet.
It won't be wrong to say that managing passwords on your own could be a tad tricky, especially if you're frequently registering on new websites. Although your web browser's built-in password manager could do the trick, your passwords could still come into jeopardy in case you log in to your main account from another computer and forget to log out.
We all know how much Photoshop is loved by designers all over the globe, all thanks to its multitude of features and excellent user interface. With that being said, not everyone would be able to afford its monthly subscription plan that costs a whopping $20.99, which could make individuals who are just getting into this field take a step back and think about other available options.
Although mainstream video editors such as Adobe Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro, and Filmora do get the job done (and that too, quite well), their subscription packages can cost an arm and a leg. Accordingly, it won't be wrong to say that not everyone would be able to afford such pricey software.
Buyers who wish to go for a machine that is based on Linux often show interest in Chromebooks due to the form factor and extended battery life capabilities. Although ChromeOS power these machines, users can still miss out on a more genuine Linux experience. For those who happen to agree, the new Lemur Pro by System76 might get some heads turning.
Based on Xubuntu, this distro comes with a heavily themed Xfce DE. There are two variants of this OS, the GNOME shell desktop, and the other is aimed at gamers. Distro hoppers who want to try something new can take this distro for a weekend spin.
Just a couple of days back, the CentOS team announced the release of CentOS Linux 7 (2003) for the x86_64 architecture. So, let's see how those owning an x86_64 architecture-based system will benefit from this OS. When it comes to CentOS Linux 7 (2003), the most important highlight has to be that it's based on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.8 Source Code.
There's good news for everyone who's a fan of both Red Hat's Fedora OS and Lenovo Thinkpads in that these companies have decided to collaborate and release Fedora-based Thinkpad laptops shortly. For the first wave of such products, the Fedora OS will come with Thinkpad X1 Gen8, ThinkPad P53, and ThinkPad P1 Gen2 laptops.
