How to quickly deploy, run Linux applications as unikernels

Network World

A unikernel is a very specialized single-address-space machine image that is similar to the kind of cloud applications that have come to dominate so much of the internet, but they are considerably smaller and are single-purpose. Building and deploying lightweight apps is becoming an easier and more reliable process with the emergence of unikernels. While limited in functionality, unikernals offer many advantages in terms of speed and security. What are unikernels?

How to switch an old Windows laptop to Linux

If you have an older system but are worried that it won’t support Windows 10 — or if you simply don’t want to deal with Windows anymore — I have a suggestion: Switch to desktop Linux. Desktop Linux can run on your Windows 7 (and older) laptops and desktops. And today’s desktop Linux distributions are as easy to use as Windows or macOS. And if you’re worried about being able to run Windows applications — don’t. Teams now runs on Linux.

One aspect of my pending migration to Ubuntu Linux on my primary laptop has been the opportunity to explore “non-traditional” uses for Linux containers.

In this post, I’ll describe what I consider to be a better way of achieving this, at least on Linux. GNOME uses the idea of “desktop files” (typically found in /usr/share/applications or ~/.local/share/applications local/share/applications ) to enable the launching of applications via the Activities screen or other mechanisms. Desktop files also allow application developers or users to define additional actions, such as opening a new window.
