Mosh Shell – A SSH Based Client for Connecting Remote Unix/Linux Systems
If we're going to have a Windows 10 thread, then we probably ought to also have a Linux thread and a MacOS thread might not be a bad idea either! People who are familiar with Linux will have used ssh and will immediately understand the usefulness of this utility.
Mosh, which stands for Mobile Shell is a command-line application which is used for connecting to the server from a client computer, over the Internet. It can be used as SSH and contains more feature than Secure Shell. It is an application similar to SSH, but with additional features. The application is written originally by Keith Winstein for Unix like operating system and released under GNU GPL v3.

desertrat: Very appropriate! If you're serious about computing, then you've spent time experimenting with Linux. There are so many flavors to choose from. Let's see, there's Mint, Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora, SUSE, Slackware, and FreeBSD to name a few. Any serious website which has to be able to keep up with the demands of millions of users will run on either Linux or Unix. Nothing else can handle the job! BTW, as of OS X, the Macintosh operating system became yet another flavor of Linux/Unix. Before that it was complete junk.

Cloud 9
I spent some time exploring Cloud 9 today. It's an online service used mostly by programmers. One of the neat features is that the web-based work space emulates Linux as experienced at the command line. That's my favorite environment for getting things done and so I signed up. This service makes it possible for someone to fully engage in professional level software development armed with only a two-hundred dollar Chromebook!
Workspaces are powered by Docker Ubuntu containers that give you full freedom over your environment, including sudo rights. Do a git push, compile SASS, see server output, and Run apps easily with the built-in Terminal and Runners.

Cloud9 IDE Feature Preview
Not a bad service and having the Linux terminal environment within a web browser is pretty awesome!

Tools You Need to be a Bad Ass Web Developer
Some great advice for kids getting started with coding.
The only thing you really need to dominate on the internet is a computer that’s hooked up to the internet, plus willpower to not look at porn, youtube and reddit all day.

Cloud 9: I'm impressed. I took the site for a testspin and there is literally no end to what you can do there. It supports programming in just about any language on just about any platform. It makes collaboration between programmers a breeze and allows people to link from anywhere on the planet. Great post blackturtle.us!

Why I Ditched My Mac for a Chromebook
Okay, so if you can get all the benefits of Linux on a Chromebook and a Chromebook costs less than a Mac or Windows PC, why not just buy a Chromebook? And yeah, I get it, if you're doing heavy-duty photo editing or video production or sound manipulation, maybe you need a regular computer, but otherwise all indications point to the conclusion that the Chromebook takes care of business.
In the Chrome browser, I opened a new tab, logged onto Soundcloud and there were my playlists (goodbye iTunes); the speaker had a lovely resonance. After hunting for the USB port (it's on the back), I connected my Sony Voice Recorder, and it configured itself seamlessly; no download required.

Cloud 9: Basically the existence of online services like this effectively can turn any consumer computer into a professional software development environment. It's amazing how far we've come since when I first started out as an engineer doing research and development work for the government back in the day. Now that I'm retired it's still fun to tinker and this kind of service makes it possible to tinker in a meaningful way while I'm sitting anywhere with reliable WiFi. Amazing stuff!

How To Install Linux on a Chromebook :pac:
As long as we're on the topic of Linux and Chromebooks, this article offers a great step-by-step set of instructions for how to get Linux up and running on your Chromebook without disrupting the Chrome OS. Great stuff for the computer geeks out there!
We're going to use a tool called Crouton to install Ubuntu (hat tip to our friends at the How-To Geek), which uses the chroot command to run Ubuntu on top of Chrome OS, which is already based on Linux. Unlike dual-booting, that means you can switch between Chrome OS and Ubuntu with a quick keyboard shortcut, no reboots necessary, which is awesome.

8 facts that explain Google's complex situation with Chrome OS
The fact that they have a common foundation makes the merging of the two operating systems possible, but that still doesn't mean that it will be an easy task to accomplish.
Both Chrome OS and Android system architects chose Linux as the foundation for their operating systems because it reduces the time to market and the risk of building a mobile device. Chromebook and Android device manufacturers gain time to market advantages too, because Linux has been cooperatively ported to many hardware platforms by system on a chip (SoC) manufacturers such as Qualcomm and Intel, device manufacturers like Lenovo and Samsung, and the Linux community.
