too many links

Take a look at this for example. http://i.imgur.com/MQ21f8r.png way too many links and it actually keeps going if I scroll down.
No one is going to read all of that. People should be easily able to recognise new content on the website.

Front page

Is shortened summaries, especially of such posts, were to appear in the front page, would that be an improvement? It would necessitate more clicking (to expand the post) but it would save space.

front page

Yes definitely Smile The short summary can include small headlines "New releases from so and so' and "Learn new tricks to fix this and tips to do that" or "New howtos for...." or "Guides for compiling this and that and migrating from software A to B etc.." then when the readers click 'read more', they see the full set of links.

And again, thank you for your dedication towards making the website more user friendly Smile

Shortening

I will be shortening long posts with many links from now on.

the leftovers

the leftovers thing with many links is way too annoying in my opinion.

Suggestion

Do you suggest that they don't get posted at all or just not in this current form?

Not in it's current form.

Not in it's current form. Perhaps make a separate page for "tutorials", or left overs. call it something like 'back news' or short news. And then keep the major articles on the front page Smile

(and thank you for replying)

Feeds

The problem is, how will people subscribe to those pages or be made aware of their existence? it would basically fragment the flow, wouldn't it? Some sites like FAIR.org do this (splitting to sections) and it complicates syndication.

The Best Linux Laptop: A Buyer’s Guide with Picks from an RHCE

If you don’t posses the right knowledge & the experience, then finding the best Linux laptop can be a daunting task. And thus you can easily end-up with something that looks great, features great performance, but struggles to cope with ‘Linux’, shame! So, as a RedHat Certified Engineer, the author & the webmaster of this blog, and as a ‘Linux’ user with 14+ years of experience, I used all my knowledge to recommend to you a couple of laptops that I personally guarantee will let you run ‘Linux’ with ease. After 20+ hours of research (carefully looking through the hardware details & reading user feedback) I chose Dell XP S9360-3591-SLV, at the top of the line. If you want a laptop that’s equipped with modern features & excellent performance that ‘just works’ with Linux, then this is your best pick. It’s well built (aluminium chassis), lightweight (2.7 lb), features powerful hardware, long battery life, includes an excellent 13.3 inch Gorilla Glass touchscreen with 3200×1800 QHD resolution which should give you excellently sharp images without making anything too small & difficult to read, a good & roomy track-pad (earlier versions had a few issues with it, but now they seem to be gone) with rubber-like palm rest area and a good keyboard (the key travel is not deep, but it’s a very think laptop so…) with Backlit, two USB 3.0 ports. Most importantly, two of the most common elements of a laptop that can give ‘Linux’ user a headache, the wireless adapter & the GPU (yes the Intel HD Graphics 620 can play 4K videos at 60fps), they are both super compatible with ‘Linux’ on this Dell.
