Wayback Wednesday: When you said ‘gone for good,’ I only heard ‘good’

User comes to this support pilot fish complaining that his PC is acting strangely.“It turns out he had gotten his computer so jammed up with spyware and Trojans that it was basically nonfunctional,” says fish. “We had to rebuild the computer from scratch.” They were able to recover much of user’s work and files, but some were irretrievably damaged — or just plain gone .Fish explains what happened and points out the probable infection vectors. And he explains that they had recovered as much as they could, but some stuff was simply gone for good. There would be no way to get anything more.“Two days later, he called to ask when I’m going to bring him the rest of his missing files.”To read this article in full, please click here

Mozilla on Tuesday announced it would accelerate Firefox releases by reducing the interval between upgrades to just four weeks.Firefox has been on a relatively rapid release cadence - an upgrade every six to eight weeks - since 2011, when Mozilla shifted to a faster schedule, a move seen at the time as reaction to the then-up-and-coming Chrome from Google. Prior to that, Mozilla spent up to a year - and longer - between upgrades.[ Further reading: 14 must-have Firefox add-ons ] Now, it'll be just four weeks.To read this article in full, please click here

Mozilla first reveals, then conceals, paid support plan for Firefox

Mozilla earlier this month quietly outlined paid support for enterprise users of Firefox, but last week scrubbed the reference from its website, saying that it is "still exploring that option."The offering - labeled "Mozilla Enterprise Client Support" - was to start at $10 per "supported installation," which likely referred to per-device, not per-user, pricing. It's unclear whether that was an annual or monthly fee, and Mozilla declined to say which it was when asked.In return for the fee, Mozilla said on the now-absent Firefox enterprise site - still visible through the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine - customers would be able to privately report bugs via a new web portal and receive fixes on a timeline dependent on the impact and urgency of the problem. Customers would also be able to file requests for help with Firefox's installation and deployment, management policies, functionality and customization.To read this article in full, please click here

At this point, warts and all, the Android 10 gestures are actually pretty pleasant to use — once you give yourself the chance to get used to 'em.Part of that simply boils down to a matter of adjustment, as a change like this is inevitably gonna be a bit of a shock at first. But part of it is also a matter of figuring out some subtle tricks to make the most of Android 10's gesture setup. Some of the tricks may seem obvious, once you consider them, while others seem almost like unintentional inclusions.

Call me crazy, but Windows 11 could run on Linux

With Microsoft embracing Linux ever more tightly, might it do the heretofore unthinkable and dump the NT kernel in favor of the Linux kernel? No, I’m not ready for the funny farm. As it prepares Windows 11, Microsoft has been laying the groundwork for such a radical release.I’ve long toyed with the idea that Microsoft could release a desktop Linux. Now I’ve started taking that idea more seriously — with a twist. Microsoft could replace Windows’ innards, the NT kernel, with a Linux kernel.It would still look like Windows. For most users, it would still work like Windows. But the engine running it all would be Linux.To read this article in full, please click here
