Laptop for 1000 Euro


Hi Guys,

I am looking for a decent laptop, to buy in Europe (Italy), that plays nicely with Linux, any brands; gpu: Intel or AMD. Thanks!

Daniel reshared this.

Eventually I decided for a Lenovo Thinkpad t40 which is sold in some country with Ubuntu, or at least is Ubuntu certified, I won't install Ubuntu but Debian but I think to get the hardware working without enough struggling. By the way it is impossible to get Ubuntu from Lenovo.

Why did I chose it? Cause I am not buying it directly but through an institution and I cannot use some exotic seller but only accredited sellers, and Lenovo is one of them...

If you want to through getting TUXEDO accredited, just let us know.
Otherwise: have fun with the T40, it's a good choice!

I already spoke with the purchase office, no way they will do that, they told me that clearly unfortunately.

Gah, too bad. But thanks for trying!

I know, it is a shame... :(



The hidden issues of Devuan


Hi there,

I am using Devuan Testing as daily driver on a Virtual Machine every day as main desktop for almost everything and I am a bit concerned about something that might become a real issue.

For its entire cycle and even when Debian Buster was released at every update I have been having this output:

The following packages have been kept back:
  elogind libelogind0 libpam-elogind


These three packages that are fundamentals for Devuan haven't received an updated for at least one year, this is not really the best practice to make an operative system safe. This three packages are a vulnerability and make Devuan a distro unsafe to use on any scenario.

I hope they are doing to make something to improve the security of Devuan keeping these three packages updated and safes.

This is a cyclic topic however I can't find a proper answer for this but:

If #ColdFusion is so damn better than #PHP why does almost no one use it?

I read a lot of very enthusiastic comparisons on how good is #CF and eventually I can't avoid to think that most of those are paid (by Adobe) reviews...

If a thing is better and and help you to make your work faster doesn't matter if it is expensive. It has also available an open source alternative. Facebook doesn't use coldfusion but a modified PHP, not even Adobe uses ColdFusion:
