Hello Friends (Especially OSS folks)

This month UnixStickers is donation a portion of all sales revenue to the Glucosio Foundation. We also are working with them to have Glucosio stickers available for sale.

You can also just help us amplify the signal

This is the most important decision we made since the day Unixstickers got started. Being developers and fans of open source and free software is what motivated us to start this adventure in the first place, and we would have never got this far without passion. We also recognize that our job, our bu.

I like what Canonical is trying to do with Snappy that being making it easier for developers to ship updates to users on Linux but this blog post does point out how the buzz has been wrong and that Snappy doesn't have buy in from other distros not even the Ubuntu flavors it seems.

It would be nice if all distros could put aside their differences and embrace something like Snappy but I'm afraid that with Canonical spearheading it that's unlikely. Maybe Linus needs to make a packaging format? :)

A lot of them will leave the UK, can't blame them. The Scottish voted to remain in the EU, they will have to be given a second shot at independence for their democracy to be respected. Northern Ireland which was expected to have a reunification referendum in the early 2020s might just demand that referendum sooner because they also voted to remain in the EU. It is a very sad day not just for Europe but for those of us that have spent a life time fighting Xenophobia and also for the international community that are attempting to work together for the future.
