Malware is coming! Discover how to detect, destroy and stay safe from Linux malware, viruses, ransomware and more! We investigate just how under threat is the average Linux user and what you can do to protect your PC, servers and IoT systems from attack.

Is Linux still the best open source operating system? We look at the 2019 alternatives. Wayland is here, so we give the new display protocol a spin on Fedora and Ubuntu. PLUS: Fractals, calendars, Parsec gaming, Linux on embedded devices, Django websites, Flask websites, Semaphore development and loads more!
