Steganography tools:

Hello, guys!

How are you? I’m looking for steganography tools that can hide information not only in images (like steghide), but in audio and video. Do you know any tool that could do this without use WINE?

Thanks!

My Thoughts on Clear Linux:

First a little background, I’ve been using Linux exclusively the last 4 years, and I am a professional software developer, primarily focused on web and integrations development. The backend language I work with the most is C#, I love .NET Core because it runs natively on Linux, but I also need to work with the legacy .NET Framework from time to time. This means I run a Windows Server VM – which I typically run using KVM / QEMU.

Up until now I’ve been running mostly Ubuntu based distros, and last year I purchased a System76 laptop that came preinstalled with Pop_OS which I really enjoyed. Recently after a clean 19.10 installation, I ran into a terrible problem with KVM that would cause a hard hang with my KVM virtual machines whenever the network connection was used. It appears to be a problem with AppArmor? I still need to file a bug report with Canonical.

I’ve always been intrigued by Clear Linux, and decided it was a great opportunity to try it out. This is a pure work machine, so no gaming here (although I do game extensively on my Linux desktop!).

Short story, I am really impressed with Clear Linux, both it’s performance and it’s sane defaults. It runs Gnome 3.34.1, has nice default theme and coloring, and a minimal selection of desktop apps that come preinstalled. Their package manager (swup) is really easy to use, and the flatpak support is excellent. The only two things I can think of that it’s lacking are:

  • Good support for Nvidia drivers, and gaming in general
  • More limited set of packages – all the major pieces of software are there, but some tools might be missing.

For the first point, I don’t plan on doing any gaming on this system, so it’s not an issue for me. For the second, I’ve largely moved over to flatpaks for most apps now, so once again not as much of any issue for me.

Overall, for a developer centered distro, it’s really fantastic!

My KVM VMs run close to bare metal speed – way faster than with Virtual Box. My colleague that develops on a MacbookPro is blown away with how fast my VMs run (he runs VMWare workstation).

One other thing worth mentioning is that the documentation on the website is really solid.

I highly recommend other folks checking it out, especially if they’re developers.

Here’s the obligatory screenshot.

Clear Linux’s desktop is really nice, who knew??!
