That combination is contributing to a slowdown or delay in enterprise plans to migrate their local computing base to public cloud operations, as an already existing Linux tech pool gap has widened since the pandemic.

One of Shift's unique traits is its ability to modify key design elements effortlessly. Hence, its name. A few other Linux distros have mechanisms to alter the look and feel of the desktop, but they work less ideally.

There is so much going on below the surface of the modern computing experience that even critically important security tools like PGP are tucked away. To be sure, there are specialized circles that make regular explicit use of PGP. My aim in treating PGP here is twofold. The first is to shed some light on it for the uninitiated. The second, and more importantly, is to teach the daring among you how to wield this powerful tool.

One of the highest on this list is full-disk encryption, which security experts regard as sacrosanct. This is the encryption that ensures that someone who snatches your device won't be able to know everything you've got saved on it. I'm here to make the case that most of you are better off not using it.
