Introduction

If you're planning on using an AMD graphics card with Ubuntu 18.04, you have a couple of options. Because Bionic is an LTS release, you do have the option of using the proprietary AMDGPU-PRO drivers. The open source drivers that come with Ubuntu are probably better for gamers, though. They're already installed, and you can configure your system to receive constant performance-boosting upgrades from the latest Mesa releases. Either way, you're going to have great experience working with AMD on Ubuntu 18.04.

Introduction

Description here Virtual private network technology makes possible to access safe, private networks by using less secure networks like the internet. VPNs are typically used to connect physically remote branches of an organization, making them appear as if they were part of the same LAN (for example two offices in different cities). The traffic between the sides of the connection is encrypted using tunnels, which protects the transmitted data and the connection information themselves. For the same characteristics, VPNs are often used to circumvent government restrictions and anonymize internet traffic.
