Issue 257 (December 2019) - Lighter and faster Linux

Click here to get the DVD via BitTorrent

Ubuntu 19.10 is out and we’re going to rip it apart to make it lighter, faster, quicker to start and generally boost it to the next level. We explore how you can strip back Ubuntu and other distros to make them super lightweight or deploy dedicated options.

PLUS: HDR photography in GIMP, OpenShot video editing, customising your boot menu, recover lost data, cool your Raspberry Pi, fix the Raspbian Bluetooth stack, retro gaming and loads more!
