It looks like Yahoo has reinstated the Linux/Open Source link on their Tech News page. Perhaps it was just a fat-fingered mistake or an accident of some sort that the link was removed from the main link bar but it certainly raised my hackles. And, frankly, my hackles don't need raising over something like this. But, they've put it back in a different location (not a big deal) but at least they've put it back. And, for those of you who either believe that it never left or that my eyesight is somehow to blame, I have screen shots for you.

This is the screenshot on the day that I noticed the link missing. In its place is Social Media.

Here is today's snapshot

Qseven duo showcases i.MX8M and i.MX8Quad
