It was a slow news day today for Linux but a few tidbits stood out. First up is Danny Stieben with his article persuading prospects how easy Linux really is. Silviu Stahie said Ubuntu was spotted on Bill Gates' Facebook page and Dan Goodin reported today that PHP could also be in danger from GHOST. And finally, Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols reviewed the results of this year's Ubuntu Server and Cloud Survey. Danny Stieben from MakeUseOf.com today wrote that some folks still may find it difficult to just take the leap the Linux. So he thought he'd try to ease the fears with his How to Get Over Your Fear of Failing at Linux. He begins by saying that the terminal has become optional these last years and that many window environments resemble Windows - especially Linux Mint. He said hardware and software support is "quite excellent" and that Linux doesn't have to be installed to try it. He concluded by saying, "Nowadays it’s quite rare for someone not to be able to use Linux for technological reasons. People just have to overcome their fear." Softpedia.com today reported on the buzz around the Internet that Bill Gates accidentally let Ubuntu be seen on his Facebook page. Silviu Stahie said: The Internet is abuzz today after Bill Gates published an image on his Facebook page and a link towards his website with the text "15 years from now, most people in poor countries will be able to take classes online." It's a sound goal and it's perfectly doable, but in the image posted on Facebook the operating system is Ubuntu. In the last few tidbits of the evening Dan Goodin wrote that GHOST "could haunt Wordpress and PHP apps, too." Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols reported on Canonical's sixth annual Ubuntu Server and Cloud Survey today. And finally, Chris Hoffman today said the odds are stacking higher against the Steam Machine everyday.
