Looks Like Fedora 34 Workstation Will Ship with the GNOME 40 Desktop by Default

The Fedora development team decided not to break protocol and continue following the latest upstream GNOME releases for its next major release, Fedora 34.

Linux at Home: Circuit Design with Linux

We are told by our governments that in the current crisis the single most important action we can take is to stay at home and minimise the amount of contact with others. The new variant of Covid-19 is much more transmissible than the virus’s previous version. The advice to stay safe is therefore even more important. It’s only with everyone abiding by the law can we protect our health services and save lives. In this series, we look at a range of home activities where Linux can play its part, making the most of our time at home, keeping active and engaged. The change of lifestyle enforced by Covid-19 is an opportunity to expand our horizons, and spend more time on activities we have neglected in the past. Now is a great time to take up a new hobby. How about learning to design circuits? The key to perfection is practice. Take any random circuit from the internet and start your designing. With this software, you’ll be able to practice, practice, practice. Read more
