The three best, Star Wars-influenced approaches to learning Linux

Filed under
Linux

Recently, a friend and I were discussing the pluses and minuses of watching the Star Wars films in various orders. (What can I say? I didn’t play football in high school. This is what I do.) The primary purpose of our conversation: to find the optimal viewing order to introduce the Star Wars universe to someone who has never seen the films before.

For example, there is something known as "Machete order" for Star Wars, which has you watching the films in the following order: 4, 5, 2, 3, 6. Watching the films this way provides what is, arguably, the most cohesive and enjoyable "single sitting, first viewing" experience – plus it does away with Episode 1 entirely. Which is a good thing.

All of this got me thinking, what would be the optimal way to introduce Linux to someone who has never used it before?

Peppermint 7 Released

Peppermint 7 launched a few days ago. Peppermint is a lightweight Ubuntu-based Linux distribution with an emphasis on speed and simplicity. Although the name is similar to Linux Mint, the projects aren't directly related. Peppermint originally was envisioned as a "spicier" alternative to Mint—whatever that means! Many distros come with a wide assortment of feature-rich applications, and that's great for power users who need those apps. But older machines can struggle to cope with those demanding distros. Peppermint solves the problem by offering a carefully curated suite of web apps that perform tasks traditionally handled by native apps. It's an approach that will be familiar to any Chromebook users reading this article. Read more
