But wait, What is Desktop Environment in Linux? A desktop environment is the bundle of components that provide you common graphical user interface (GUI) elements such as icons, toolbars, wallpapers, and desktop widgets. Thanks to the desktop environment, you can use Linux graphically using your mouse and keyboard like you do in other operating systems like Windows and macOS.
As of 2020, Windows is still the dominant desktop OS comprising nearly 90% of it’s demographic and I was in it for over 14 years. It was initially fast but as time progressed, the Windows updates stacked up along with previously installed softwares. Adding gasoline to the fire, Windows decided to bake advertisements and even more telementary services right into the operating system.
As the long-term evolution (LTE) system embracing 4G is reaching maturity, it is reasonable for humanity to ponder “what’s next?”
We all know that 5G is a paradigm shift from 4G with very high carrier frequencies, massive bandwidths, a tremendous amount of base station and device densities, and unprecedented numbers of antennas.
Linux often gets a bad reputation when it comes to installing software, and this is because we have so many different application distribution formats. Most of them also are misunderstood, or have preconceived notions attached to them, so I think it’s time to take a look at the differences among the different packaging formats!
When you realize your system is getting slow and is unable to handle the current number of requests even with optimizations, you need to scale the system sooner than you can optimize further. Building a scalable system also drives to a lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). Proper scaling in process-intensive applications embraces interesting new scenarios, notably in data analytics and machine learning.
Wait, What is Docker? Have you ever worried about software running in your machine but not in other systems? Docker is the solution. Docker sandboxes applications running within as containers so that their execution is completely isolated from others. This has become enormously popular over the last few years, but to capitalize on it, you need to integrate third-party images.
