A local mirror for openSUSE users in Mauritius 🥳

This is something I had planned since long — a local mirror for openSUSE users. The only hiccup to it was finding a server & bandwidth sponsor. In fact, sponsorship is usually the struggle for open source projects and/or activities, in Mauritius.

Linux User Group of Mauritius meets Luboš Kocman

We did not have physical meetups for perhaps longer than a year. So, when Luboš told me that he is visiting Mauritius and will be glad to meet local openSUSE, Linux & FOSS people, I was thrilled. Not to mention he'd bring some openSUSE goodies. 😊 I called up LUGM friends to make this happen.

Trying GNOME 41

GNOME 41 brings new features to improve the desktop experience on Linux. I tried it by running GNOME OS. Three-finger gestures and the new Multitasking panel are what I liked most.

Set up the latest version of Mozilla Firefox on your Linux distribution

Latest software are not always readily available in Linux software repositories. Most Linux distribution projects have strict packaging rules to test and ensure software quality and security. So, what do we do to run software on its release day?
