Mint 19.2 has landed and we’re going to show you how to get the perfect install. There’s no better, friendlier introduction to using Linux than with Linux Mint.

We explore where the world could be headed in the form of the new open source Google kernel called Fuchsia, could this eventually supplant Linux or are we just turning pink with envy? There’s a Roundup of lightweight distros, more assembly coding, more Minecraft coding, more Android hacking, more desktop apps and even more!
