With all the talk about security and vulnerabilities of various operating systems, it's been hard to miss the latest revelation about the Linux/Unix bug call "Shellshocked."  Some of the things being posted are not always technically correct (this article) and some are questioning if the patches being pushed out are effective.

Of course, being vigilant and making sure your system has the latest updates never hurts!

Still running on Windows XP? Wondering if it's time to upgrade? Maybe setting up your PC to dual boot between Windows and Linux is the right answer for you.  Perhaps you want to leave Windows altogether and just start new.

Here are a couple of links to get going in the right direction:

I upgraded one laptop with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS to 14.04 LTS. Most of the process went pretty smoothly.  However, every software update after the upgrade complains about a failed install:

Calculating upgrade... Done
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
