About this Episode

The distro challenges roll on with Fedora Workstation. Jason shares his thoughts on getting it up and running, feeling at home with vanilla Gnome, and why Fedora may be perfect place for his Magic the Gathering addiction.

Plus, the Raspberry Pi journey continues with NextCloudPi. Is creating a DropBox substitute really this easy?

Episode Links

  • The Fedora 29 Linux Community Challenge — By popular demand, we're moving into March by exploring another community-powered distro with a corporate shadow (in Red Hat), and one that people have passionately encouraged me to try: Fedora Workstation.
  • Fedora Workstation — Fedora Workstation is a reliable, user-friendly, and powerful operating system for your laptop or desktop computer. It supports a wide range of developers, from hobbyists and students to professionals in corporate environments.
  • Create A Personal Home Backup Server With Raspberry Pi 3 — NextCloudPi is a standalone, self-contained OS that runs on your Raspberry Pi. It lets you sync and manually back up files from practically any device (including your phone and its camera instantly), and serve files to those devices.
  • NextCloudPi — NextCloudPi is a Nextcloud instance that is preinstalled and preconfigured, and includes a management interface with all the tools you need to self host your private data in a single package. This is an official open source community project that aims at making it easier for everyone to have control over their own data.
  • Net Scan — Network scanning and discovery along with port scanner.
  • Wonder Shaper — Wonder Shaper is a script that allow the user to limit the bandwidth of one or more network adapters. It does so by using iproute's tc command, but greatly simplifies its operation.
