I use Firefox as the default Web browser on my Ubuntu Linux system and am wondering if it’s up to date given the spectre and meltdown issues. How do I check?
I need to test out some software within Ubuntu Linux for work. I don’t want to dual boot, so I’m looking at VMware Fusion for my iMac. Can I install Ubuntu Linux in VMware Fusion, and if so, what are the steps?
I’ve just started using virtual machines with VMware Fusion on my Mac system and it’s really cool. Now I want to dabble in Linux, specifically Fedora, the free distribution of Red Hat Linux. Is it compatible? How do I get started?
I like to explore a wide variety of Web sites when I’m using my computer and don’t want to be tracked or have it show up in my history. Is that possible in Firefox?
I have been having fun with my Ubuntu Linux system but the default wallpaper image is boring. How can I change it?
I want to run Ubuntu Linux on my PC, but I would like to do it as an application within Windows 10, not as a separate boot. Is that possible?
Coming from a Mac environment, there’s a lot I like about Ubuntu Linux but one thing still confuses me: Why do app menus show up on the very top of the screen, rather than on the app windows themselves? Can I change this behavior??
