  • Regolith Linux — Regolith Linux is a distro for people that prefer a spartan interface with polished and consistent system management. It brings together a trifecta of Ubuntu’s ubiquity, i3-wm’s efficient and productive interface, and Gnome’s system configuration features.
  • Regolith Linux is the i3 Ubuntu Spin You’ve Been Waiting For — Regolith is two things: it’s an Ubuntu-based Linux distro and it’s an installable desktop session. Both approaches share the same aim: make it (a bit) easier to get started with i3 on Ubuntu.
  • Rosa Linux — ROSA Desktop is a Linux distribution featuring a highly customised KDE desktop and a number of modifications designed to enhance the user-friendliness of the working environment.
  • Antsy Alien Attack! — A game, written in Bash, that is a somewhat retro-a-like shoot 'em up. Hopefully.
  • QJoyPad — A simple Linux/QT program that lets you use your gaming devices where you want them: in your games!
  • Ubuntu Podcast S12E10.5 @ FOSS Talk Live 2019 — Mark, Alan and Martin from Ubuntu Podcast have each been working on a secret coding challenge. All is revealed before a live audience at FOSS Talk Live 2019!
  • How to use Gnome shell’s secret screen recorder — In this article, we will see how to use a Gnome shell’s secret screen recorder.
