Hi ,

Linux Mint 19.2 has been released with improved performance, Cinnamon 4.2 and more changes. You can read about how it is different from Mint 19 and 19.1 and how to upgrade to Mint 19.2.

Manjaro Linux now provides the option to choose between LibreOffice and proprietary FreeOffice. This was after some controversy. More details here.

I wrote a quick tip about checking your Linux system's boot time

If you are using Ubuntu or Ubuntu-based distributions, I recommend reading this article that explains the concept of repositories. With this, you'll have a better understanding of packages and software management.

Speaking of software and packages, you may learn about using PostgreSQL on Ubuntu

Oh! and I finally uploaded a video on YouTube. It's almost after two months and I apologize for that. Creating good videos is not the same as creating text content.

You probably already know that It's FOSS donates regularly to various open source projects. That's one of the ways I give back to the community.

I did something different recently. I setup a website for an NGO in humanitarian sector. Their old website was not working well and they were changing domains. It's FOSS will alo bear the cost of servers and other related expenses.

Don't worry. I am not asking for donations. You probably won't even be able to donate because India doesn't allow foreign funding to all NGOs.

I just wanted to share it with you because I am really happy with the work I did. It feels good to do some social work with whatever skill sets you have got, isn't it?

That's it for this week. 

Enjoy :)
