Is it just me or black hat hackers seem to be a lot more active this year?
I think it's more that companies have really started devoting resources to security research over the last year or two. Not just vendors, but corporate clients also.

Linus is not worried about Microsoft take over

Torvalds said: "The whole anti-Microsoft thing was sometimes funny as a joke, but not really. Today, they're actually much friendlier. I talk to Microsoft engineers at various conferences, and I feel like, yes, they have changed, and the engineers are happy. And they're like really happy working on Linux. So I completely dismissed all the anti-Microsoft stuff."

Torvalds does not believe that this is the "old Microsoft, and was just biding its time".

Windows 10 vs. Ubuntu 19.10 vs. Clear Linux vs. Debian 10.1 Benchmarks On An Intel Core i9:
On a geometric mean basis, Clear Linux still delivered the best perform in coming out 6% faster than Debian or 21% compared to Microsoft Windows 10. Ubuntu 19.10 as the slowest of the Linux distributions benchmarked on this system saw just 7% better performance than Windows 10.

Even the slowest Linux distro is 7% faster than Win10... :-^

Linus Torvalds says “Don’t use ZFS”—but doesn’t seem to understand it
Linus should avoid authoritative statements about projects he's unfamiliar with.
