VMware, Dell split to form independent firms

Published on 15th April, 2021, 12:20 AM

After many months of wrangling, Dell Technologies says it is spinning off its ownership of VMware to create two standalone companies.

While it gives both companies more financial freedom, the new relationship should have no immediate effect on enterprise customers, but that could come down the road.

Dell has had an 81% equity ownership of VMware since its 2016, $67 billion purchase of  EMC, which owned VMware. Under terms of the planned spin-off, VMware will distribute a cash dividend of $11.5 - $12 billion to all VMware shareholders, which includes about $9.7 billion to Dell Technologies, the companies stated.

Taking control of your Ubuntu desktop

Published on 14th April, 2021, 11:00 AM

You may have a lot more control over your Ubuntu desktop than you know. In this post, we'll look into what you should expect to see by default and how you can change that.

Most Linux desktops start out charmingly uncluttered. They display a handful of icons on an attractive background. These include shortcuts for launching applications, generally along the left side or bottom of the screen, and maybe another icon or two in the otherwise open area.

The uncluttered desktop is generally a good thing. You can open folders using your file manager and move around to any group of files that you need to use or update. By changing a setting on Ubuntu (and related distributions), however, you can also set up your system to open with a specified set of files in view – and you don't have to move them into your Desktop folder to do so.

Published on 13th April, 2021, 11:00 AM

Just because Linux appeals to the nerdiest of nerds doesn't mean that it can't be extremely helpful for those who don't want to spend a lot of time delving into the technical details of how to use various commands. In fact, Linux provides a series of tools that can help anyone master the command line or just get the task at hand done more quickly and efficiently. This post covers 10 of the best options.

man pages

You can always go to the man pages to answer usage and syntax questions you might have on a Linux command. Just type "man" followed by the name of the command (e.g., man ps), and you'll get a lot of descriptive information. 

On the other hand, if you really just want to see some examples of how to use a particular command, the content of a man page might be a lot more than you want to comb through. In the remainder of this post, I'll explain some other options for finding the command that you need and learning how to use it.
