Snaptastic is a graphical snap manager utility, available in the elementary AppCenter, offering software that might not be available through standard elementary OS repository channels. We tested.

Another quick live stream coming up in 5 mins from me. More 19.10 testing, and some behind the scenes information.

On this day in 1989, Jordan Mechner released Prince of Persia on the Apple II. 30 years on, a dozen games, graphic novels and films keep the Princess's hopes alive. Play the open source port, 'SDLPop' on today.

Recently discovered the Car Throttle channel on YouTube. If you like the old challenges on Top Gear years ago, you'll like these guys. They're jolly good fun.

@mngrif Yeah, I only just discovered it. It's super.

This 10 minute video about the Citicar is worth a watch. The presenter seems to be having such a great time in an awful car. His laughter while driving is quite infectious.

@kev @linux It's a tired old trope which is used to beat Canonical, along with "They don't contribute to upstream", "They kill everything they make - lol Ubuntu TV", "Not invented here", "It's just Debian recompiled". I'm quite tired of having to answer the same stupid question backed by a lack of understanding, over... and over.

@directhex Ooh! Did you grab some? Wish that was available round my way.

Performance of the Purism Librem 5 phone seems to be way better than in previous videos. Impressive improvements.

@linux People have been telling me that the word "Linux" isn't anywhere on our website for years. It's wrong. I mean, did you even look before you replied to me? Did you notice neither the Debian home page barely mentions it, and the Fedora home page doesn't mention it at all. Our "About us" page clearly mentions it.

@linux Why should Canonical / Ubuntu go through a costly rebranding alone? New users to Ubuntu can already find help by searching for ubuntu online. There's a lot of places available.
