The two big releases of the year are here; Ubuntu 24.04 LTS and Fedora 40. I deferred sending the newsletter by a day so that I could provide you with all the coverage.

Although, Ubuntu 24.04 comes with several new features and changes, I am unhappy with a change they introduced. I shared my frustration in this article.

I AM SO DISAPPOINTED WITH UBUNTU 24.04 😡The sheer audacity of not caring for its users reeks of Microsoft-esque arrogance.

💬 Let’s see what else you get in this edition:

  • Ubuntu 24.04 and Fedora 40 articles
  • Gentoo saying no to AI generated code.
  • FOSSers discussing who invented Wi-Fi.
  • A neat open-source RSS reader app for Android.
  • And other Linux news, videos and, of course, memes!

🧠 What we’re thinking about

Print magazines seem to be a relic of the past. There used to be several dedicated Linux magazines in the late 90s and early 2000s. Linux Voice, Linux Journal are some of the names I can recall.

Surprisingly, there are still a couple of Linux magazines that remain in print even in 2024. Pleasant surprise, actually. Linux Magazine is one of those rare few. Do check it out if you still prefer keeping books in your hand rather than on your screen.
