where does one get Ubuntu news from, these days?

Excellent! The first (free) issue of HackSpace magazine arrived today. Perfect for weekend reading.

Canonical are hiring. Looking for a talented C++ developer to work on the Mir display server. Details at the community hub link where you can ask questions and get more details. Please share!

(yes, I know that technically it's *next* year) :D

The FOSDEM 2018 "Distributions Devroom Committee" have put out a call for participation. Any of you thinking of going to FOSDEM this year?

Never been asked to unsubscribe by someone marketing their products before... Chef Bernie seems like a good guy :)

Interestingly the Purism phone just gained a $17999 and a $19999 level backer! Wonder who would back at that level?

The Gaming On Linux people have a Rust game server. It's fun. I play on it sometimes. I die on it often. Join us! :)
