Linux without Avira Antivirus ...

As a result, by June 30, 2016, we will discontinue our Linux product sector and concentrate increasingly on developing Avira’s Windows and Mac OS system product portfolio only. Specifically, Avira AntiVir Professional Linux, Avira Server Security Linux and Avira Free Antivirus Linux will be discontinued and Avira Endpoint Security and Avira Business Security Suite will be offered without Linux support.

I don't tested this antivirus with my Fedora. The only antivirus I tested and seam working well it's f-prot.

You can read more about this on avira support webpage.

News about the new MintBox 2.

Linux Mint will come with the new MintBox 2.
I want to see more distro to do that for the users.
What do you think if will see in the future Fedora Box, Gentoo Box and Debian Box?
Linux it's a free OS, why don't have some low price for hardware to promote the distro?
The donate way is poor and many users don't see it.
So I think the MintBox is a great idea.
See this comparison of the MintBox basic, the MintBox pro and the MintBox 2.
