The one hundred installment of the 9to5Linux Weekly Roundup is here for the week ending on August 28th, 2022, keeping you guys up to date with the most important things happening in the Linux world. If you missed last week’s 9to5Linux Weekly Roundup, catch up with things here.
Thank you everyone for your continued support! Thank you for your comments, likes, retweets, shares, follows, suggestions, tips, and whatnot. This is the 100 edition of our Linux Weekly Roundup and it couldn’t be possible without your support, which is highly appreciated.
This week we’re not only celebrating 9to5Linux’s 100th Linux Weekly Roundup, but we’re also celebrating Linux’s 31st birthday. Happy birthday and here’s to many more releases! P.S.: this is also the reason we’re posting the Weekly Roundup earlier than usual.
On top of that, this week brought us a new stable Firefox release with some goodies for Linux users, a new major Flatpak release, two new computers from Kubuntu Focus and TUXEDO Computers, as well as a new major NetworkManager release with lots of good stuff.
