Skype Releases Urgent Hotfix For Bug Affecting Windows, Mac & Linux Clients [Updates]

As you may have already heard, a recently discovered Skype bug is causing random chat messages to be sent to the wrong users. The bug was revealed a few days ago and, according to Skype, is affecting Skype 5.10 for Windows, Skype 5.8 for Mac, Skype 4.0 for Linux and Skype 1.2 for Windows Phone. The messages are sent to the wrong users only when Skype crashes in the middle of a IM session, a situation which can cause anything from a single message to a whole conversation to be sent to an entirely different user from the one you were originally chatting to.

Create Your Very Own Operating System With Linux From Scratch [Linux]

Do you know how customizable Linux really is? Well you should if you’ve even heard of Linux or dabbled in it a bit. If not, try taking a look at a list of over 1,000 different Linux distributions currently available. All of them try to cater to your exact needs and tastes, so a reasonable mind would think that there’d have to be a distribution out there with which you’ll find the perfect companion.

For a long time, I’ve been curious about Linux operating systems. I’ve used Windows my whole life, so the idea of switching to another operating system is a pretty big deal. I think switching to a new OS could be a lot of fun – something completely new. What made me decide to take a closer look at Linux operating systems out there is the fact that I love the Android OS on my Droid so much – and the fact that I’ve never had to “reboot” it once.
