Destination Linux had Vinzenz Vietzke of Tuxedo Computers as a guest who explained their stance on consumer's right to repair. We are firm believers in this right and delve into this as well as planned obsolescence common in many electronics.
The Destination Linux Network launched a new website recently called Front Page Linux. This is a news and commentary site focused on Linux, Open Source, community and more. Eric has already published several articles and Nate is planning to do so soon.
The Ask Noah Show recently discussed the art of troubleshooting and what's involved with being an effective problem solver. We touch on how troubleshooting has played a big part in our lives and how we are passing it on to our children.
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!
