Gotta Spare Monitor?

Does anyone have an old working monitor lying around waiting to be taken to the dump or given away?

Tuxmachines could use a couple/few good displays. Mine started failing a while back and now most of them are shot.

I know it's not exactly cheap to ship old CRTs, but I don't mind them if you can swing it. In fact, I think I still prefer their "picture" to that of newer LCDs. But LCDs are great too.

If you have a good working monitor or two that you could donate to the cause and get listed on the Wall of Appreciation, please email me at tuxmachines at gmail for a shipping address.

Thank you so much,

Update: Tuxmachines could use a coupla new DVD burners and SATA hard drives as well.

Update 2: As shipping and such can sometimes be costly, if you'd rather send a donation specifically for hardware, you may do so and send a note specifying that it's for hardware:

The 10 Best New Features in GNOME 3.38

Gnome 3.38 is released. This new version with the codename “Orbis” brings along a lot more new features and improvements. This post will look at some of these features that you should expect. Even though this powerful Desktop Environment includes all the features we will look at, their availability may differ from one distribution to another. The downstream packaging process mainly causes that. Some of these features might be renamed, relocated, or omitted for later versions of the particular distro. Since Ubuntu 20.04 is an LTS release, you can’t install the Gnome 3.38 here. If you are in dire need to test this new release, you can download the ISO file for GNOME 3.38 BETA and use it as a virtual machine. Alternatively, you can wait for the release of Ubuntu 20.10 in October as it is meant to ship with this new GNOME release. Read more

Best Free and Open Source Linux Guitar Tools

There are three main types of modern acoustic guitar: the classical guitar (Spanish guitar/nylon-string guitar), the steel-string acoustic guitar and the archtop guitar, which is sometimes called a “jazz guitar”. Electric guitars, introduced in the 1930s, use an amplifier and a loudspeaker. Like acoustic guitars, there are various types of electric guitars including hollowbody guitars, archtop guitars (used in jazz guitar, blues and rockabilly) and solid-body guitars. Read more
