Google Chrome, or Chrome, is a web browser software that tries to compete with major players, such as Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, and even the Opera web browser. It is available for the Linux, Android, iOS, Microsoft Windows, and Mac OS X operating systems. But Google Chrome is more than a web browser, as it combines sophisticated open source technology, borrowed from the Chromium application, into a minimal design, all in order to help users surf the web much faster, a lot easier, and safer than ever before.
Features at a glance

A unique functionality of the Google Chrome application is its ability to search the web directly from the address bar. Just type one or more words in the address bar and immediately get suggestions for popular web pages. The application displays thumbnails of your top websites on the new tab page, a function that is popularly called Speed Dial. This functionality is also available on other similar products, and it allows you to easily access your favorite web pages instantly, with lightning speed, from any new tab.

Linux Kernel 5.0.1 stable is Release, Install on Ubuntu and Linux Mint System

Linux kernel is the essential part of any Linux operating system. It is responsible for resource allocation, low-level hardware interfaces, security, simple communications, basic file system management, and more. Written from scratch by Linus Torvalds (with help from various developers), Linux is a clone of the UNIX operating system. It is geared towards POSIX and Single UNIX Specification compliances.

Includes powerful features

Linux provides users with powerful features, such as true multitasking, multistack networking, shared copy-on-write executables, shared libraries, demand loading, virtual memory, and proper memory management.

Whats new on kernel 5.0.1 ?

Greg Kroah-Hartman today released Linux 5.0.1 alongside other stable maintenance point releases. On the Linux 5.0.1 front there are some notable changes include:

- Setting the X86_FEATURE_CPB bit unconditionally for all AMD Family 17h "Zen" processors. Some 17h models do not have the CPB set even though all the 17h CPUs support it, so now the kernel is unconditionally setting the bit... CPB is the Core Performance Boost mode. Two years ago there were problems with CPB not getting set so it was selectively being enabled, but now that work from two years ago is being expanded to unconditionally enable it for all Zen CPUs. See that aforelinked article for some benchmarks on the impact when CPB is disabled vs. enabled.

- Fixes for potential Spectre V1 vulnerabilities within the Applicom driver.

- A fix allowing for the USB role feature to work on the Intel Kabylake NUC hardware.

- The recently talked about fix that was added to Linux 5.1 and now back-ported for addressing a fix from some MacBook Pros from booting.

- Various fixes to the read-only "EROFS" file-system driver.

- Various other fixes.

In total several hundred lines worth of code changes as outlined with all of the changes in the 5.0.1 announcement.

ExTiX 19.3, Build 190307 based on upcoming Ubuntu 19.04 and kernel 5.0.0-exton

ExTiX is an Ubuntu-based desktop distribution which experiments with alternative desktop environments. The project's latest release, ExTiX 19.3, is based on a snapshot of Ubuntu 19.04's development branch and features a similarly early preview of the Xfce 4.13 desktop.

ExTiX 19.3 Xfce4/Kodi DVD 64 bit is based on Debian and upcoming (release date 190418) Ubuntu 19.04. The original system includes the Desktop Environment Gnome. After removing Gnome I have installed Xfce 4.13. Xfce is a lightweight desktop environment for UNIX-like operating systems. It aims to be fast and low on system resources, while still being visually appealing and user friendly. I have also installed Kodi 18.2 Leia with some addons already enabled. Most important Netflix.

NOTE: This ExTiX Xfce4 Build is for installation to non-UEFI-enabled computers. You can therefore use the Calamares Installer also in VirtualBox and/or VMware. I.e non-efi enabled computers.

WHAT’S SO SPECIAL about ExTiX 19.3 ?
1. The ExTiX ISO’s are ISO-hybrids, which means that they can very easily be transferred (copied) to a USB pen drive. You can even run ExTiX from the USB stick and save all your system changes on the stick. I.e. you will enjoy persistence!
2. Another big improvement is that both ExTiX versions can run from RAM. Use Boot alternative 3 (load to RAM). When the system has booted up you can remove the disc (DVD) or USB stick. You’ll need at least 3 GB RAM to run ExTiX 19.3 that way. Running from RAM means that the system will run faster than from a DVD or a USB stick. Everything will be superfast I would say!
3. All packages have been upgraded to the latest version by 190307.
4. Kernel 5.0.0 is the latest kernel by 190307.
5. I have replaced Ubuntu’s installation program Ubiquity (live installer) with Calamares. It works very well. I.e. a new user (your user) will be created during the installation process and you’ll get a chance to change root’s password. Just start the installer from the menu under System.
6. The best thing with ExTiX 19.3 is that while running the system live (from DVD/USB) or from hard drive you can use Refracta Snapshot (pre-installed) to create your own live installable Ubuntu system.
7. As an alternative to Xfce4 you can run Kodi 18.2 Leia. Just start Kodi like any other program while logged in to the Xfce4 Desktop as the ordinary user live. I have enabled a few addons in Kodi. Most important the Netflix addon. NOTE: You can’t run Kodi as root. (You won’t have sound).
8. Nvidia proprietary Graphics driver 418.43 is pre-installed in ExTiX 19.3. It will be used automatically if your computer has support for it.

Pardus is a Debian-based distribution jointly developed by the Scientific & Technological Research Council of Turkey (TÜBİTAK) and National Academic Network and Information Centre (ULAKBİM).

Pardus 17.5 is the latest intermediate version. To keep track of the changes, you have to keep your Pardus 17 installed system up to date. With this latest version of Pardus 17, LTS (Long Term Support) is fixed on 01.05.2021. Pardus 17 will continue to receive updates, but a new version will not create a disc pattern. Pardus reserves the right to republish the current version of the current version of the disk pattern without notice in the future.

Changes on Linux Pardus 17.5 :

  • Fixed the usage scenario in many graphical interfaces that the end user encountered.
  • A lot of system performance affecting the package update and optimization was done.
  • Security updates including over 200 packages and patches have been added to the system.

  • The default application store pardus-store version was updated to 0.3.1 ~ beta4 and content management was dynamically editable without remote update.
  • The faults found in sssd that communicate with the default login screen shell lightdm-gtk-greeter and the user management systems at the back end have been fixed and the system has been rendered error free with the user management system.
  • The installation process was abandoned via the live pop-up system, and only the installation environment was opened and the preference was made to load.
  • LTS label was placed on the nomenclature of the disc molds which will be given long term support.
  • The package follower, in which the difference between debian from which Pardus is derived and which can be observed live, will be broadcasted at tracker.pardus.org.tr on 11.03.2019.
