All In One System Rescue Toolkit 2017 is out   

All In One System Rescue Toolkit 2017 improves the technician's toolkit in a meaningful way. It is still relatively lightweight compared to other solutions -- GeGeek Toolkit has a size of more than 1.6 Gigabytes for instance -- but that is largely because of a concentration on a limited number of repair and troubleshooting tools.

Tails OS 3.0 Released! Now Uses Debian 9   

One of the most popular privacy focused Linux distributions, Tails has released version 3.0, based on Debian 9. The release comes three days before the official release of Debian 9.

This is the first time a new version of Tails is released almost at the same time as the new version of Debian which it is based on. Debian 9 will officially be released on June 17, 2017.

According to the release statement, Tails 3.0 was released earlier than Debian 9 because users could benefit from the changes in Debian earlier as well as to "detect and fix issues in the new version of Debian while it is still in development so that our work also benefits Debian earlier."

Windows 10 blunder   

Windows 10 blunder - If you receive this update from Microsoft DO NOT install it

Microsoft has apologised to users after it released an update to its popular Windows 10 operating system by mistake.

The US technology giant said the Windows 10 build was accidentally released to members enlisted on its Insiders programme.

According to Microsoft, the update wasn't fully tested with the firm stating that, "this build was never intended to go out to Windows Insiders and may include issues that impact usability of your PC."

This problem happened due to an inadvertent deployment to the engineering system that controls which builds/which rings to push out to insiders.

Microsoft says its team was quick to revert the deployment and put blocks in place to stop these builds from going out to more people.

Microsoft Is Now Using Linus Torvalds Linux Open Source Tool For Windows Development   

In recent years, Microsoft has been becoming more friendly to Linux, even going so far as to say that they love it. Now, Microsoft announced that they were adopting the version control software originally created for the development of Linux.

Git is a version control system used to keep track of changes made to files. It was originally created by the Father of Linux, Linus Torvalds. When Linus started work on the Linux kernel, he used the free version of a (then) proprietary source control management system named BitKeeper. In 2005, Larry McVoy, the owner of BitKeeper, accused Andrew Tridgell, the creator of Samba and rsync, of reverse engineering BitKeepers protocols and revoke the free use of BitKeeper.
