Linux people, I am hiring systems administrators! We work with scientific data, containers, big-ass tape libraries, supercomputers, and everything in between. We pay relocation, and you'd even get an actual honest-to-god pension.

keynote starting at Computex 2022 in just a few minutes for the late night nerds. Watching with the geeks because, why not.

Interestingly I'm trying out grub-customizer, but it only sees "Windows Boot Manager" and "UEFI Firmware Settings" as choices to re-order. If I can get the Fedora 36 entries to show, this should solve the issue for me.

Yes I am being stubborn, I don't feel like doing a bunch of manual configs right now. :)

This may be considered blasphemous to some, but really could use a better, GUI-based GRUB management tool. I've been dual boot experimenting for years, it's just never a great experience and juggling through current iterations is just irritating more than educating.

It also does not help that every kernel update drops an additional entry in the list, breaking the order-based booting I've been using to make the laptop "wife friendly" to always made Windows boot on startup.

Hey , does anyone here know of a beginning developer, in need, that could use a laptop gratis? I have a Starlabs Laptop IV that I don't use. Please boost for visibility.

I always enjoy Christina's take on current issues and cool little projects...

BTW, is also looking for an open source firmware engineer, if you know anyone who might be looking for a pretty cool job.

Anyone who might have been curious about the laptop, they've just announced upgrades to the Intel 12th gen processors. This will be an interesting test for them. I bought the 11th gen model about a month ago (yeah, probably should have waited!) but if you've been thinking about it the 11th gen kits are discounted right now too! Very much enjoying it, and great Linux support so far.

Dear open source users,

If the author of your favorite open source app has announced they stopped developing and supporting the app (because they're frustrated and possibly burned out), please don't suggest they do more free work so that you can continue using the app.
Instead, consider thanking them for their past work and let them know that you enjoyed their app.
