I just installed Linux for the first time on my own machine.
It's been a while since I used it. Traditionally I am a Mac guy, as I do a lot of audio editing/recording and it seems to get along with Pro Tools much better than Windows. I had an extra laptop that I bought last year for my wife lying around that she never used as she ended up using an old mac laptop I had, so I decided to give Linux a go since I hate windows 8 so much.
It is outstanding so far, I already like it more than Mac for an "every day use" machine. I can't believe I didn't do this sooner. Also, the computer runs quite a bit faster now than before, another huge plus. Been lurking long enough here that I'm finally glad to join the party.submitted by livingspeedbump

Linux.com: Once the install is complete, you find out your wireless isn’t working! What do you do?
I am pleased to announce the release of SymphonyOS 15.0. This release continues improvements to the Mezzo 4 desktop bringing it to a much more stable state.
I find anytime this is brought up somewhere outside of linux centric subreddits one main tired argument is brought up in one version or another.
There is no money in linux. By which they are saying either linux users don't spend money, or the linux development community in general doesn't make money.
Which as we all know is a bad argument for a great many reasons. However this is still one of the largest issues keeping many companies from supporting linux because thats how they look at the issue as well. The same sentiments have been said by representatives from many software companies.
So I ask, is there a way the linux community can curb that point of view?submitted by amazingmrbrock

Thanks to GOL reader Fedso, we now have month-by-month comparisons for the survey as well as an automated program which takes the raw survey data and makes graphs. This is pretty exciting stuff since now one of the main goals of the survey project has been achieved and we can observe trends over time.
You can find the new survey for this month here.
