I’ve been using Linux Mint for years now as my main desktop. And, every year that goes by, it keeps improving. With Linux Mint 18.2, the free, open-source desktop has only gotten better.Once more, Mint’s Cinnamon interface with its classic windows, icons, menus, pointers (WIMP) interface is simple and easy to use even if you’ve never touched Linux in your life. Cinnamon 3.4.3’s look and feel has a crisp, clean appearance with easy to read fonts and colors that you can easily adjust to your heart’s content. While the new Cinnamon interface looks and works the same, under the hood it has many speed improvements. These include splitting the settings daemon and the Nemo file manager into multiple processes. In addition, the Cinnamon JavaScript Interpreter (CJS) has been re-based on a newer version of GJS, Gnome’s JavaScript binding, for improved performance and memory usage.

How Linux got to be Linux: Test driving 1993-2003 distros

A unique trait of open source is that it’s never truly EOL (End of Life). The disc images mostly remain online, and their licenses don’t expire, so going back and installing an old version of Linux in a virtual machine and getting a precise picture of what progress Linux has made over the years is relatively simple.
We begin our journey with Slackware 1.01, posted to the comp.os.linux.announce newsgroup well over 20 years ago.
Slackware 1.01 (1993)

Slackware 1.01
The best part about trying Slackware 1.01 is that there’s a pre-made image in Qemu’s 2014 series of free images, so you don’t have to perform the install manually (don’t get used to this luxury).

How Do Cryptocurrency Blockchains Really Work?

Most of us simply know it as the technology behind the highly popular cryptocurrency Bitcoin, but the reality is that blockchain’s usefulness isn’t just limited to digital currencies.
A few of its proponents include business icons like Bill Gates and Richard Branson, and the blockchain even has the big banks tripping over one another to be the first to apply its many uses to their own business.
But what really is the blockchain, and why does it have everyone from Wall Street to Silicon Valley so excited?
What Is The Blockchain?
Historically, people and businesses have relied on middleman like and banks and governments to ensure the fair transaction of money or items of value. These intermediaries are necessary to building trust in the transactional process through authentication and keeping records.
