The Perfect Desktop - Kubuntu 12.10

falko's picture

This tutorial shows how you can set up a Kubuntu 12.10 desktop that is a full-fledged replacement for a Windows desktop, i.e. that has all the software that people need to do the things they do on their Windows desktops. The advantages are clear: you get a secure system without DRM restrictions that works even on old hardware, and the best thing is: all software comes free of charge. Kubuntu uses the KDE desktop environment.

But there is an easy solution in the Linux world.

If you've spent any time examining the network traffic to and from your web browser, you will notice the prolific number of trackers embedded in the pages. There are some add-ons to the web browsers that aid in privacy, but it is simple enough to block the rogue sites at the firewall.
