Linux Foundation: Introduction to Linux course review by https://is.gd/UQXex0

The Linux Foundation offers a number of online courses via the edX platform including an Introduction to Linux.

One very attractive feature of these courses is that they are free to take, although you can pay an additional fee of $99 (around £75) for a formal ‘certificate of completion’ if you wish.

The Introduction to Linux course has been prepared by Jerry Cooperstein, the Training Program Director for the Linux Foundation, and there’s even a short welcome message from the creator of the Linux kernel, Linus Torvalds himself. So it’s safe to say you’re in good hands.

Void Linux – the Strangely Overlooked Distribution by https://is.gd/PAo8bG

Ahh, Void Linux. You may or may not have heard of it. If you have, more than likely it was by word of mouth, so to speak, from internet comments on a forum, YouTube video or in passing on Reddit. But this little distro rarely gets any press or recognition otherwise.

Perhaps it’s time that changes, as Void Linux is an interesting distro in its own right and a good alternative to something like Arch Linux. It also has a no-systemd approach.
