RetroBytes put together quite the complete / lengthy history of X11. I've been using KDE Plasma on Wayland for a while but X11 is going to remain for some time to come. Enjoy!
The YouTube ExplainingComputers guy just came out with a Linux End-User Manifesto. He basically makes an argument for how Linux users can better advocate for wider adoption. Enjoy!
Video Game Esoterica put together a 2023 year in review video. I don't think I would have selected any different than he did. Enjoy!
The Open Source Summit was held this week in Japan. The Linux Foundation has been pretty quick to post the videos on YouTube but currently in very long, everything-that-happened-in-this-room-that-day format. I fished this clip out and converted it to av1/opus in a webm media container. If you can't play that, use something that is compatible with those codecs/container format.

What Linux distro do you use? Ever find yourself needing or wanting to use a different distro or application from a different distro? distrobox is a front-end for podman (or docker) that makes it quick and easy to install any of many different mainstream Linux distros. What makes distrobox interesting is that it automatically integrates with your host desktop with regards to your user home directory and graphical applications. Easily run graphical applications from most any distro. Enjoy!
Here's a 30 minute documentary that explains the eBPF function of the Linux kernel. Enjoy!
Value has been doing a ton of work getting games (both Linux native but mainly Windows-baseed ones) to run well on Linux and the Linux kernel and Linux community has really benefited from that development work. Here's a presentation that exposes all of that work. Enjoy!
Jon Corbet was at the fairly recent Open Source Summit Europe 2023 and gave his Kernel Report. Enjoy!
I haven't really used any of the available immutable Linux flavors but if I were to try one, it would most likely be Silverblue. I do see a considerable number of Fedora users on their IRC channels who are using Silverblue. Enjoy!
This dropped at midnight last night. Seems like a significant increase in power for price.
