TCP Ping: Turns out you can ping websites using TCP!

Microsoft Lync 2010 on Linux (Linux Mint / Kali Linux / Debian)? Yes it’s possible!

I am wondering if someone already did install Microsoft Lync 2010 on their Linux box. Since its one of the most commonly used internal messengers of companies out there, why not give it a shot on Linux?
