Steam Makes it Easier to Play Thousands of Windows Games on Linux   

It's no secret that the Linux gaming library offers only a fraction of what the Windows library offers. In fact, many people wouldn't even consider switching to Linuxsimply because most of the games they want to play aren't available on the platform.

At the time of writing this article, Linux has just over 5,000 games available on Steam compared to the library's almost 27,000 total games. Now, 5,000 games may be a lot, but it isn't 27,000 games, that's for sure.

And though almost every new indie game seems to launch with a Linux release, we are still left without a way to play many Triple-A titles. For me, though there are many titles I would love the opportunity to play, this has never been a make-or-break problem since almost all of my favorite titles are available on Linux since I primarily play indie and retro gamesanyway.

Ubuntu 17.10 Reaches end of life, existing users must upgrade to 18.04   

Ubuntu 17.10 reached the end of life on 19th July 2018. This means that systems running Ubuntu 17.10 won't receive security and maintenance updates from Canonical anymore leaving them vulnerable.

Ubuntu 17.10 was released on 19th October 2017 and nine months later, it has reached its end of life. This shouldn't come as a surprise because Ubuntu 17.10 was a normal or short-term release and these releases are supported for only nine months.

Ubuntu 17.10 was a crucial release in many senses. It was used as a testing platform for Ubuntu's switch from Unity to GNOME desktop before the release of Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. It also tried using Wayland as the default display server and we all know that was a disastrous decision. Thanks to 17.10, Ubuntu 18.04 didn't feature Wayland as the default display server.

Google Chrome UPDATE: Users warned as huge change coming they may NOT like   

Google Chrome fans have been put on alert about a huge update that they will soon be able to download.

Google Chrome is undoubtedly the most popular internet browser in the world - and it doesn't look like it will lose that crown anytime soon.

In the first six months of this year Google Chrome had a staggering 62.04 per cent chunk of the internet browser market, according to NetMarketShare.

Its nearest rival, the ageing Internet Explorer, had a 12.03 per cent share with Firefox behind on 10.41 per cent.

Microsoft's newer browser Edge, which is bundled in with Windows 10, had just a 4.41 per cent slice of the browser market.

Chrome is by far the most popular browser in the world, and Google aren't resting on their laurels - with a big update planned.

However, the tech giant have warned users ahead of the download's release.

The latest way Microsoft Office is used to infect your computer   

Criminal have found another way to (mis)use Microsoft Office and infect computers using the latest 'zero-day' hack.

You may know that Adobe's Flash was a popular add-in for web pages to display multi-media content.  But Flash was very insecure and unstable so it's been mostly replaced with other secure systems.  Most modern browsers block Flash content by default and you're rarely prompted to install Flash.

Guess which popular software still allows links to Flash content .... you guessed it, Microsoft Office.

The latest hack takes advantage of that security hole.  An infected Office document has a link to Flash content which is downloaded and run to gain access to the computer.
