    The first point release for X.Org Server 1.20 has been released today (xorg-server 1.20.1) and it is chock full of fixes.

    X.Org Server 1.20 was in development for more than a year, but its initial release in May was not exactly smooth, as there were numerous bug fallouts and things that needed adjusting. Fortunately, X.Org Server 1.20.1 is the first point release to address a myriad of issues that were effecting the initial release – which is great news, as this point release is just in time to hopefully make it into the various Linux distros that utilize X.Org Server (Ubuntu 18.10, Fedora 29, etc).

A Bright Spotlight on elementary OS 5.0

It's really bright. elementary OS 5.0 is the best release so far by mainly it's AppCenter uniqueness and richest of desktop features ever among the prior releases. The thing I love the most is the fact that elementary OS developers contribute greatly to our community which we didn't see anything like that before: they created a new software distribution platform similar to what we previously saw on Apple macOS, except it's for free/libre open source software, by allowing app developers to get paid directly by the users (with the so-called "pay-what-you-want" system). elementary OS is popular, as you may see on Distrowatch, so we can expect bright future for the health of its apps market (and hope more developers getting attracted to join). The desktop is really usable, the shortcut keys are visible (by pressing Super key) and customizable, its enhanced with parental control as well as Night Light, the apps are plenty and still growing in numbers, plus it's compatible with Ubuntu 18.04 so you can install thousands of packages if you wish right now. I can run it really smooth on an Intel 967 CPU with 4GB RAM (Intel Graphics). I hope it will be smoother on your systems. I wish this quick review of mine helps you a lot to get attracted to elementary OS and soon be a happy user. Read more
