BGR: Here’s another really great reason to never touch Linux. http://google.com/newsstand/s/CBIw-7TysCw

As a desktop OS, Linux leaves a lot to be desired compared to OS X or Windows. But one thing we’re always hearing about is the Linux community, a frequently-sweary place likeminded geeks can …

Always interesting to see the other side of the story. This is from a #Fedora developer employed by #RedHat commenting on a press release from #Canonical with regards to the #snappy on #Ubuntu.

The latest in the How Do You #Fedora series is now available on #FedoraMagazine. Excellent read about an interesting #Fedora user from #Kenya  
Arthur Buliva is a Fedora contributor and user involved as an Ambassador in Kenya. How does he use Fedora to accomplish his daily tasks?
