Ask Slashdot: Protecting Home Computers From Guests?

isama Re:Guest wifi... (572 comments)

I'm not sure whether it is possible to do this on a standalone pc, but on an active directory it's easy to lock a user account into a fixed state. they call it a mandatory profile. I've used it at a local community centre and it seems to work pretty good. may e it os possible to use mandatory profiles on a standalone windows box?

MATE Desktop 1.2 Released

isama Re:More Linux fragmentation... (194 comments)

I'm running mate on 2 debian boxes, my desktop and my netbook. the only thing I got really annoyed at was that they renamed everything, gnome-panel is mate-panel, that's understandable, but why rename nautilus caja? other than that my experience is that mate is really a good fork of gnome2.
