Issue 228 (September 2017) - Learn more with Linux

We’re going back to school and boosting your learning with Linux, open source and low-cost single-board PCs, powering your own and children’s education. We’ll equip a laptop with educational tools, run cool hardware projects and get you started as an ace coder. So, if you’re just interested in expanding your mind, want to help your children, or get involved in a Code Club, this issue is the perfect place to start.

But we know study, study, study makes Jane a dull girl, so we’re also looking at the exciting world of mobile phones and what the heck happened to the open source mobile OS dream? How did Canonical mess up so badly with the Ubuntu Phone, and what projects are picking up its mantle?

We have a tutorial on installing the Cyanogenmod replacement Lineage OS, too. Roundup looks at all the file sync tools you need to keep your documents consistent everywhere and everywhen. While our tutorials cover using the Terminal, Vagrant automation, music in the Linux Multimedia Suite, recovery with Scalpel, podcast recording in Audacity and even more!
