About this Episode

In the weekly update segment, Eric talks about testing and making videos about the preview releases of Manjaro's upcoming 19.0 release as well as KDE Plasma 5.18 Beta on Kubuntu. Nate tells us about using Windscribe VPN, managing Kontact, and a hardware fail with a vintage power supply.

We get some listener feedback from GOK via the Destination Linux Discourse forum about SAP and SUSE Linux.

Our community focus this week touches on a topic also discussed in the DLN forum about domain registrars.

On Linux for Everyone this week, Jason Evangehlo interviewed Philip Mueller of Manjaro and we discuss how smaller hardware manufacturers like Tuxedo Computers are filling a void left by their larger competitors.

Destination Linux brought up the topic of Linus Torvalds' response to a question about the Linux kernel and ZFS support. We had a few differing thoughts on the subject.

Finally, this week marks the first episode of Destination Linux Network's newest show, Hardware Addicts.

That's all for this week. Be sure to stop by DLN's Discourse, Telegram, Mumble and Discord servers to continue the discussion. More information about this show and other Destination Linux Network shows and creators (like Eric and Nate for example) is available at destinationlinux.network.

Until next time, see yas!
