  • Introducing The Elementary OS 5 Linux Community Challenge — The basic premise of the elementary OS Challenge is simple: ditch Windows, macOS or your current Linux OS of choice and exclusively use elementary OS 5 Juno as your daily driver for two weeks. Explore the curated AppCenter and the bundled software to get all of your working and playing done. For email, for music, for coding, for gaming, for whatever.
  • Elementary OS Challenge: Let's Talk About Dark Themes — Like every other deliberate choice the elementary OS developers make (such as minimizing windows), the absence of an optional dark mode reflects their clear and unwavering vision of what a desktop experience should be.
  • The Elementary OS Challenge Telegram group — There we can support each other, learn some new tricks from each other, make some new friends, toss out questions or answers and just generally kick some ass.
  • openmediavault — openmediavault is the next generation network attached storage (NAS) solution based on Debian Linux. It contains services like SSH, (S)FTP, SMB/CIFS, DAAP media server, RSync, BitTorrent client and many more. Thanks to the modular design of the framework it can be enhanced via plugins.
