  • GNOME relationship with GNU and the FSF – Liberal Murmurs — In my capacity as the Executive Director of the GNOME Foundation, I have also written to the FSF. One of the most important parts of my role is to think of the well being of our community and the GNOME mission. One of the GNOME Foundation’s strategic goals is to be an exemplary community in terms of diversity and inclusion. I feel we can’t continue to have a formal association with the FSF or the GNU project when its main voice in the world is saying things that hurt this aim.

  • balena releases first fully functional 64-bit OS for the Raspberry Pi 4 — Today, we are excited to announce the release of 64-bit balenaOS for the Raspberry Pi 4, providing support for the full 4GB of memory and allowing the simultaneous, side-by-side running of 32-bit and 64-bit Docker containers - a first for the Raspberry Pi 4!

Nextcloud 17 will introduce a series of secure collaboration features including a collaborative text editor, remote wipe, updated secure view, improved two-factor-authentication and easier access than ever with deeper integration of large-scale storage like S3 and IBM Spectrum Scale.

  • PowerShell on GitHub
  • PowerShellOnLinux - Home — Our Site is focused on everything PowerShell regardless of which OS you are running but we are specifically focused on Linux and Mac.
  • PowerShellOnLinux - FavoriteModules — Below you will find a list of PowerShell Modules that we've found useful.
  • PowerShellOnLinux on Twitter
  • DM on Twitter
  • Free Courses at Linux Academy — September 2019 — On September 17th Linux Torvald first released the Linux Operating System Kernel on September 17th, 1991 so we are celebrating by offering free training for you to increase your Linux Skills.

  • Texas Cyber Summit — October 10th to 12th in San Antonio, Texas.
  • Linux Headlines — Linux and open source headlines every weekday, in under 3 minutes.

  • Self-Hosted 1: The First One — You've been wanting to host a Nextcloud instance (or anything else) for your family for a while now. Where on Earth do you start? We share some hard learned lessons about self-hosting, discuss the most important things to consider when building a home server, and Chris gives Alex a hard time about Arch as a Server OS.

  • Unofficial Hacker Family Dinner & Unbirthday Party | Meetup — Join Chris, Wes, Chz and Ell for a meet and greet with fellow Texas Cyber Summit attendees and a belated celebration of Ell and Allie's Birthdays! There will be good food, good friends, and we hope some good conversation.
  • Manjaro - enjoy the simplicity — Manjaro is a professionally made Linux based operating system that is a suitable replacement for Windows or MacOS. Multiple Desktop Environments are available through our Official and Community editions. We also work with manufacturers to design dedicated hardware. Visit the shop for more information.
  • ClipGrab — A friendly downloader for YouTube and other sites
  • Linux 5.3 - Linux Kernel Newbies
  • Linux 5.4 Cycle To Begin With exFAT Driver, EPYC Improvements & New GPU Support — Finally there will be mainline exFAT support for that Microsoft file-system with it finally being blessed to be supported under Linux/open-source. The exFAT driver still has a lot of improvements to go (the current code quality has been called horrible) but is already making progress within staging.
