Tech For Everyone #23: Halo and Linux Lessons

I don’t envy any individual or small organization that has to market a Linux distribution (or a FOSS project, or an indie game). There are currently hundreds of Linux distros in active development. 72 of those employ the GNOME desktop environment, and 77 use …

Last week we escaped to Premantura for a few days.(Those of you who've followed me since the summer of 2020 might know Premantura as my peaceful away from home on the Istrian Coast of Croatia, where I recovered from Legionnaire's Disease.)It didn't matter tha…
