GNOME 3.24 Release Notes

GNOME 3.24 is the latest version of GNOME 3, and is the result
of 6 months’ hard work by the GNOME community. It contains major new
features, as well as many smaller improvements and bug fixes. In total, the
release incorporates 28459 changes, made by approximately 753

Ubuntu 17.04 (Zesty Zapus) Final Beta Released with Linux Kernel 4.10, Mesa 17.0

Canonical released today, as expected, the Final Beta of the upcoming Ubuntu 17.04 (Zesty Zapus) operating system, due for release on April 13, 2017, along with the rest of the opt-in flavors, such as Kubuntu, Xubuntu, Lubuntu, Ubuntu GNOME, etc.

We’re absolutely chuffed to bits to announce, what is quite possibly,
the best Ubuntu MATE beta we’ve ever released. We didn’t participate
in the Beta 1 so we have quite the change log from Alpha 2 that was
released in January. We still have some fixes to land for the themes
but overall this release is shaping up to be really great.

Xorg is now crashing whenever my monitors are going to sleep (happens always in my lunch time) – after returning its crashed and i need todo a hard reset to get the gpu running again.

State of Linux on the MacBook Pro 2016


The following document provides an overview about Linux support for the Apple
MacBook Pro 2016 line.

Stack Overflow Developer Survey 2017


Linux Desktop was the most loved platform. Sharepoint was the most dreaded. And finally, more developers wanted to work with Android this year than any other platform.

Senate votes to let ISPs sell your Web browsing history to advertisers

The US Senate today voted to eliminate broadband privacy rules that would have required ISPs to get consumers’ explicit consent before selling or sharing Web browsing data and other private information with advertisers and other companies.

Following the vote, Senator Ed Markey said “ISP” should stand for “information sold for profit,” and “invading subscriber privacy,”

How ISPs can sell your Web history—and how to stop them

So what has changed for Internet users? In one sense, nothing changed this week, because the requirement to obtain customer consent before sharing or selling data is not scheduled to take effect until at least December 4, 2017. ISPs didn’t have to follow the rules yesterday or the day before, and they won’t ever have to follow them if the rules are eliminated.


Re: our call out for engagement
  • We know not all, maybe even the majority are very active on social networks/reddit.
  • We are making a plea to those that are, those that reshare and are active. Help us please.
Feedback Takeaways
  • Each feedback medium reflects the era of the show when it was created to a degree.

  • r/las: Turns into a mob after a couple of days, misses our replies, accuses us of not replying. Often critical of Noah, tends to be nostalgic of the past.

  • Telegram: Loves Noah, mostly likes the show as is. Most of them have suggestions/ideas. All of which seem the best so far. Say I’ll keep following whatever you do.

  • Email: A lot of love, def some strong ideas for change.

  • Twitter: Mixed bag, but majority is positive.

  • YouTube: Similar to the r/LAS.

  • Patreon: Positive, and encouraging.
