Jon Watson dishes on Linux World Net

Filed under
Interviews

We sat down virtually this weekend with Jon Watson, the head of the Linux World Net blog network - focused on Linux. Here’s Jon’s dish:

Tell us a little bit about yourself and Linux World Net.

Well, Linux World Net is a new network of Linux-centric blogs. There are a lot of great Linux resources out there, but as far as I can see, there’s no single stopping point for a wide variety of Linux information. Hence, Linux World Net - a single resource for topics like gaming, security, new user tips, development, business, news, FUD removal, and whatever else the guys come up with each day. At any given time, the current network blogroll can be seen at any Linux World Net blog, but The Kernel is the main source of network information.

As for me, I think I’m best described as a Linux enthusiast. I’ve written articles for Linux Magazine, Linux Journal, Linux World, and Sitepoint; been interviewed (mostly about podcasting); and spoken at the recent Calgary Linux User’s Group Linuxfest. I keep a love-me page at jonwatson.ca about if anyone can stomach it.

Where are you headed with Linux World Net this year?

Full Story.

GNOME and KDE

  • Community Time at Collabora [Ed: Mono]
  • Refocus
    Sometimes all those GNOME programming projects are driving me crazy. [...] Note that for that last item, I would use LaTeXila of course, so if there are some regressions due to some library changes (you perfectly know which library in particular I mean), I’ll probably become aware of the regressions and fix them. Without any guarantees, I repeat. So if someone wants to take over LaTeXila maintenance, I would be more than happy. In the condition that I can still recognize my old pet project afterwards and is still mostly bug-free.
  • Chakra GNU/Linux Users Get KDE Plasma 5.5.4 and Calligra 2.9.11 Office Suite
