created: 2022-11-02 from Bernhard

A Linux-based operating system is no longer just for computer geeks these days. The operation is now extraordinarily user-friendly and intuitive, and is a real alternative to Windows in most areas.

access Linux from Windows: SSH terminal, files, web

created: 2023-02-16 from Bernhard

I've been using Ubuntu as the operating system (OS) for my main computer for years, but recently still gave my old Windows machine another chance. The reasons are mainly the use of Office: Outlook, Word, Excel, and the use of Visual Studio. I was more than satisfied with Ubuntu as a client OS for a long time, thanks to the Office Online version and Visual Studio Code instead of Visual Studio and because I rarely used the products. Nevertheless, I wanted a computer with which I can start everythi... ... continue reading

When Ubuntu stops responding: Linux Memory Leak

created: 2022-09-25 from Bernhard

After my Linux computer did not respond again and again, I was looking for the cause.

Although not a solution, but a way to stabilize the computer, provides the package earlyoom. Earlyoom controls the memory and terminates certain processes if necessary. You can specify which processes earlyoom should preferentially terminate and which should run if possible. ... continue reading
