Linux.org on the comeback trail

Filed under
Linux
Web

It seems to be a bad time to be a Linux website. After a September 2011 breach on kernel.org and several other Linux Foundation web sites, it appears that community site Linux.org has been down for quite a while as well.

The reason for Linux.org's removal is not completely known, though it does not seem to be the result of an attack, but rather a planned renovation of the popular site. The renovation plans are not outlined publicly, nor is any timeline, but signs of life are indicating that Linux.org is about to come back to life eventually.

A new Twitter account for the Linux.org site, for instance, started tweeting on March 28, asking the Twitter-verse what features they might like to see on the relaunched site. But with only three tweets and 21 followers at the time of this writing, it is unlikely many people have seen these announcements yet.

The phone borrows its design cues from multiple flagship devices, but clearly its major influence is the iPhone 7. But is this dual-selfie camera, iPhone-lookalike worth its price? Here’s our review Read more
