Sold! (tentatively)

Filed under
Site News

I guess tuxmachines.org has been sold for $1000. I know it's kinda low, but times have changed and the new owner plans to carry on the tuxmachines tradition.

I suppose that's all I should say for now until the deal is written in stone.

Thanks everyone for everything: all the visits, all the jokes, comments, and donations. But more on that later as well.

hi

what happened? is the new owner running the website now?

re: hi

Um, not quite yet, but the deal is done. The new owner has sent payment and I was gonna put up another post when it cleared and I handed over the reins. I expect payment to clear before the end of the week. At that time, I'll introduce him and hand it over. Until then, it's still me, Susan.

Oh, what happened? I just noticed that hits were falling, so, I updated the site and thought I'd work on it until the very end because I didn't want {new owner} to lose too many users. Besides, it's hard to adjust to not posting news. I keep seeing all these cool links...

thank you

You've done an excellent job with tuxmachines over the years, thank you for providing it to us all.

re:hi

I do hope you will still be at least involved Smile maybe post stuff once in a while Tongue

I am starting today, but it's likely that news aggregation will properly start next week.

You have your Windows in my Linux

Although there are those who think the systemd debate has been decided in favor of systemd, the exceedingly loud protests on message boards, forums, and the posts I wrote over the past two weeks would indicate otherwise. I've seen many declarations of victory for systemd, now that Red Hat has forced it into the enterprise with the release of RHEL 7. I don't think it's that easy. Read more
