EU Considers Banning Kaspersky Software ‘Confirmed as Malicious   

Kaspersky Labs isn't having a particularly good time of it. The company's attempts to defeat the US ban on its products have been unsuccessful, the UK has banned all Russian software from government networks that carry traffic rated Secret or higher, and Kaspersky's decision to move some of its infrastructure to Switzerland from Russia hasn't prevented the Netherlands from planning to phase out its use of Kaspersky products, either.

Now, on top of these moves, the EU could adopt a resolution of its own to block the use of Kaspersky software. While the motion, which was voted on today, is non-binding, it follows a series of actions by various EU member and non-member states to restrict (or at least recommend restricting) the ways that the company's software is deployed.

Top 5 Linux Distributions for Productivity   

First off, Linux is a productive operating system by design. Thanks to an incredibly reliable and stable platform, getting work done is easy. Second, to gauge effectiveness, you have to consider what type of work you need a productivity boost for. General office work? Development? School? Data mining? Human resources? You see how this question can get somewhat complicated.

That doesn't mean, however, that some distributions aren't able to do a better job of configuring and presenting that underlying operating system into an efficient platform for getting work done. Quite the contrary. Some distributions do a much better job of "getting out of the way," so you don't find yourself in a work-related hole, having to dig yourself out and catch up before the end of day. These distributions help strip away the complexity that can be found in Linux, thereby making your workflow painless.

Five Trends Influencing Linux's Growth at the Endpoint   

recent IDC InfoBrief identified Linux as the only endpoint operating system growing globally. While Windows market share remains flat, at 39% in 2015 and 2017, Linux has grown from 30% in 2015 to 35% in 2017, worldwide. And the trend is accelerating.

Considering everywhere that systems built around the Linux kernel are used, we quickly realize that Linux is the most dominating operating system in the comparatively brief history of computer technology. Information systems have changed dramatically since August 1991 when Linus Torvalds announced, "I'm doing a (free) operating system (just a hobby, won't be big like gnu) for 386(486) AT clones." With all due respect to the icons of open source, Linus is without question the Nicolas Tesla of information technology.
