Rebellin Linux 3.5 Rolls Out as the Best GNU/Linux Distro Based on Debian Sid
The developers of the Debian-based Rebellin Linux operating system have announced today the release and general availability of version 3.5, a major build that introduces exciting new features and up-to-date components.
Rebellin Linux 3.5 rolls out as the best GNU/Linux distribution based on Debian Sid, according to the developers, because it comes with out-of-the-box email support. We don't know what to say about that, but we can't help but notice that this release includes the latest GNOME 3.22.2 and MATE 1.16.1 desktop environments.
"Rebellin Linux v3.5 is out! Built on the goodness of Debian and the previous Rebellin, it’s the best Debian Sid based distribution you can get. Know why? Cos it comes with email support," reads today's announcement. "Download Rebellin now and end your search for the perfect Linux distro."

Thoughts on Slackware 14.2
All in all I'm quite happy with slackware 14.2 on my quasi-modern computer. Old school linux and openbsd types will no doubt feel at home with slack. There's no systemd to worry about. A full install takes about 9 gigs of drive space. The slackware folks have obviously put a ton of work into this new release. A word of warning to linux newbies, this isn't the easiest distro to install and is probably best suited to linux intermediates or experts.
I’m a big fan of Prometheus. I use it quite a lot at both home and work, and greatly enjoy having insight into what my systems are doing at any given moment. One of the most widely used Prometheus exporters is the node_exporter: a daemon that can extract a wide variety of metrics from UNIX-like machines.
As I was browsing the repository, I noticed an open issue requesting the addition of WiFi metrics to node_exporter. The idea intrigued me, and I realized that I would certainly make use of such a feature on my Linux laptop. I began exploring options for retrieving WiFi device information on Linux.
