Ubuntu 17.10: Finally, an exciting Ubuntu release by https://is.gd/ePcNMx

The days of the boring Ubuntu releases are over. The release of Ubuntu 17.10 was going to be the final iteration to include the ousted Unity desktop interface.

Instead of following the pattern Ubuntu has held since it attempted to bring convergence to the Linux desktop, Canonical is going to jettison its in-house desktop earlier than originally scheduled.

Turn An Old Monitor Into A Daily Status Board by https://is.gd/80Hi5o

My mirror doesn’t come to life and tell me about the rest of my day when I walk in bleary-eyed to the bathroom, as much as I wish it did.

An always-on dashboard relaying to me my calendar appointments and the weather would both help me start my day with a better understanding of what I need to get done, and keep me from walking through the city in the rain. Fortunately, with a little tinkering (Linux and Raspberry) you can turn whatever devices you have lying around into your own DIY status board.

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.
