185: Let’s Fix Linux Tech Support

On this week’s episode of Destination Linux, we’re transitioning from the topic of Bug Reporting last week to Tech Support in Linux this week. We’re going to check in on Wayland’s progress with Plasma’s new release, we have an sandbox MMO for gaming, and our popular tips/tricks and software picks. All of this and so much more, coming up right now on Destination Linux.

  1. Thanks, everyone - for another informative and entertaining show. I’m starting another catch-up spree, so hopefully will be current soon.

    With regard to tech-support, sometimes I wonder if anything for newbies is viewed with a slightly snobbish air at times, and therefore not well-taken-care of. Just my thoughts. I haven’t heard of those apps mentioned by @MichaelTunnell either. Hope some good comes out of the ideas you put forward today :slight_smile:
