IDG Contributor Network: Does the Linux desktop really matter in the long run?

InfoWorld - 8 hours 30 min ago
Does the Linux desktop really matter?

Some folks have long expected Linux to one day rule the desktop market, but so far that simply hasn't happened. But does the desktop really matter in the long run to Linux? A writer at TechRepublic recently explored this question.

Jack Wallen reports for TechRepublic:

Linux on the desktop has been a primary driving force for the open source platform for a very long time. I remember having the "World Domination" poster hanging in my old TechRepublic office back in 1999. I picked it up at my first Linux convention (where most of the participants walked around in trench coats, with their sticker-riddled laptops, hardly speaking a word to one another). That was so important to me and every working day I added to that battle cry. I was certain that Linux would some day usurp Windows as the leading desktop platform.

Java installer flaw shows why you should clear your Downloads folder

InfoWorld - 9 hours 29 min ago

On most computers, the default download folder quickly becomes a repository of old and unorganized files that were opened once and then forgotten about. A recently fixed flaw in the Java installer highlights why keeping this folder clean is important.

On Friday, Oracle published a security advisory recommending that users delete all the Java installers they might have laying around on their computers and use new ones for versions 6u113, 7u97, 8u73, or later.

The reason is that older Java installers are designed to look for and automatically load a number of specifically named DLL (Dynamic Link Library) files from the current directory. In the case of Java installers downloaded from the Web, the current directory is typically the computer's default download folder.
