Our donation drive has been going well with several very generous pledges. All are appreciated and are allowing me more time for tuxmachines. Ad revenue increased as visitors allowed ads for my site and that is appreciated as well. It never fails to move me at how generous the human species can be.

These include the Linux 4.8 kernel packages and an updated graphics stack based on a newer X.Org Server version and Mesa 3D Graphics Library. Read more
