    When i type
    WOT in my Firefox is Full red & says that is a Bad reputation site.

    What should i do ?
    should i stay or should i go ?

  • I think WOT is setting off false alarms. Some websites try to profile their visitors browsing habits, even many of the plugins which display ads do that, maybe that is the reason for the warning. Some website do not have a security certificates that too can set off alarms, just like some even very famous applications are labeled as untrusted during installation.

    this is a nice idea, but the options available appear fairly limited in this version — no doubt it will evolve into it’s own software management tool eventually — one thing that bugs me with linux is there appears to be no single tool for: (finding software and drivers from any resource with descriptions rating and reviews; install/update/remove along with all required dependencies and examine installations to see what is wrong with them) that seems like a tall order, but since it is done in part by many different tools, integrating them into a single GUI should be possible.

    interestingly, Yeoworks’ tool has an option to: ‘Login without GUI’ — that is not something you should inflict on an unsuspecting user, particularly if they’re not yet comfortable with using terminal scripts.
