Open Source, Closed Doors? FOSS and the Racial Divide

FOSS fans are no strangers to difficult topics, and for proof one need look no further than the ongoing sexism controversy that has been debated so many times in every bar and watering hole of the Linux blogosphere. Recently, however, one came up that’s enjoyed far less prominence — at least since Linux Girl began keeping track lo these many years ago.

The Graying of the Linux Kernel Community

There are few things more gratifying to those of us here in the Linux blogosphere than seeing another user give the proprietary world the boot and make the switch to our favorite operating system. If anything can come close, however, it would be the birth of a new forum for advocating for Linux. So let the trumpets sound! This month has brought news of just that: Linux Voice.

Customization has been a growing trend, but until recently, smartphones were a glaring exception. Linux Girl can no longer even count the number of times she’s asked for a big "L" and an image of Tux emblazoned on her device.
