Linux Format 172 On Sale Today - Has Ubuntu lost it?

Filed under
Linux
Ubuntu

With its Distrowatch ranking falling faster than Man Utd now that Sir Alex Ferguson has departed, Ubuntu is no longer the all-conquering force that it was. So what's happened? Has it, in fact, lost it, or is there a more subtle game afoot? We answer this conundrum (sort of) in the latest Linux Format.

We also invite you discover the ethos that's powering Trisquel, the freeest distro of all named after a Gaulish God; learn the fundamentals of programming with Scratch and Coding Concepts; and get acquainted with your ancestors without travelling through time with the excellent Gramps genealogy application. All this, plus Hotpicks, Sysadmin, tutorials and more, in Linux Format!

On The DVD: Our own Privacy Enhanced remix of Ubuntu and regular versions of Kubuntu and Xubuntu. Plus Manjaro, free (as in speech) books, software and more.

Ubuntu lost it?

Yaw might better get this one cause that big Ubuntu story is my last at Linux Format. I got sacked right after....

hmmm.....

(j/k), I'm sure it had nothing to do with Ubuntu.

I actually did do one more column after that. But Linux Format 173 was my last issue. Sad ...budget cuts they say.

P.S. I take donations. Smile
