In this episode: Linux Mint has a new sponsor. Freya has been released, there’s a new beta of Thunderbird and brief SSL woes for Manjaro. Microsoft enters Core OS territory and Debian has a new project lead. We’ve also got some lovely Finds and a super-positive Voice of the Masses.

What’s in the show:

  • News:

Elementary OS ‘Freya‘ has finally been released, but you need to navigate a payment form to get to the download. A $100,000 Kickstarter campaign to create a OLPC-alike ‘Computer for the Entire World‘ has been launched. Called Endless Computer, the OS is buit around Fedora and Gnome. Mozilla’s email client, Thunderbird, has a new beta despite not being developed by the Mozilla Foundation itself. Microsoft has released Windows Nano Server, a stripped down version of Windows for containers. The SSL certificate for Manjaro Linux’s website had expired and the original workaround was to put your system date back. And Neil McGovern has been elected the new project leader for Debian.
