Today in Linux news, the Kubuntu team have released ISOs with the Plasma 5 desktop for all to test. Russia has offered 3.9m roubles to anyone who can crack the Tor network. And Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols has a round-up of the best in Linux desktops. Kubuntu Plasma 5 ISOs have been made available for those wishing to test the newly released next-generation KDE desktop. Rohan Garg said these images are just meant to technical preview of a future, very future, release of Kubuntu. The "default login is blank password, just press return to login," Jonathan Riddell said. In other KDE news, The Register has a bit of a look-see at Plasma 5. Speaking of Plasma 5, it has also been included in Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols' best Linux desktop environments. GNOME, Unity, and MATE also made the cut. He said of his favorite, "What I like about Cinnamon is that it is, in my mind, a perfect blend of the Windows XP and GNOME 2.x interface. I still think this is the best desktop interface style." TheGuardian.com is reporting that "Russia's interior ministry has offered up to 3.9m roubles (£65,000) for research on identifying the users of Tor" supposedly to insure their country's defense and security. Russia has lots of Tor users, over 210,000 currently, and many of them are using in reaction to attempts to regulate the internet and use of government intimidation to discourage certain sites and topics.
