We’re celebrating the hottest distro releases of 2018! Not just the software but the thousands of unsung heroes behind the scenes that help create a full Linux distribution from the maintainers and developers to the document writers and blog posters. We’ll even show you how to make your own, so you can share the pain!

We also look at how open source gaming projects can help retro games live on in a modern world! We test the best email clients. Scan barcodes. Mess with images in Audacity. Install Linux on Lenovo laptops. Create a home VPN and loads more!
