inding your Laptop battery status in GUI mode is easy. You could easily tell the battery level by hovering the mouse pointer on the battery indicator app in the task bar.

There are different ways to manage virtual machines (VMs) running on KVM hypervisor. For example, virt-manager is a popular GUI-based front-end for VM management. However, if you would like to use KVM on a headless server, GUI-based solutions will not be ideal. In fact, you can create and manage KVM VMs purely from the command line using kvm command-line wrapper script. Alternatively, you can use virsh which is an easier-to-use command-line user interface for managing guest VMs. Underneath virsh, it communicates wtih libvirtd service which can control several different hypervisors including KVM, Xen, QEMU, LXC and OpenVZ.
Debian GNU/Linux founder Ian Murdock has died. He was 42. Murdock is best known for launching the open-source distro in 1993. Just last month, he joined the technology startup Docker in San Francisco. On Monday afternoon, he posted a string of distressing and erratic tweets, revealing he had been arrested by police near his home in the city, and that he was accused of assaulting an officer. Murdock was also threatening to kill himself. After people reached out to him, he appeared to calm down, vowing instead to clear his name. Murdock died that evening. His Twitter account has since been disabled.
So, what’s new in Kali 2.0? There’s a new 4.0 kernel, now based on Debian Jessie, improved hardware and wireless driver coverage, support for a variety of Desktop Environments (gnome, kde, xfce, mate, e17, lxde, i3wm), updated desktop environment and tools – and the list goes on. But these bulletpoint items are essentially a side effect of the real changes that have taken place in our development backend. Ready to hear the real news?
Next Thing’s CHIP could be the next big little thing: A $9 literally chip-sized BYOP (Bring Your Own Peripherals) computer that runs a variant of Debian Linux. The hardware design is Open Hardware, meaning you can study and learn how it works and modify the design, if you want to fabricate your own tiny computer. With nearly a month of backing left, it’s nearing $1 million in Kickstarter funding — far exceeding its target goal of $50,000.
