New Things on GNU/Linux Community Recently in 2020


There are a lot of things happened in Free Software Community since 2019. There are many new social things, new technology, and new plans. Some stuffs caught my attentions are:

  • The rise of GNU/Linux branded computers (I wrote article here)
  • The arrival of new ethical code hosting services namely Codeberg,, and Sourcehut (I wrote one)
  • PrivacyToolsIO starts providing ethical privacy services namely SearX, Mastodon, Gitea (I wrote one)
  • Hyperbola plans to use BSD’s kernel instead of Linux-libre (I didn’t write any)
  • GNOME names a city in Indonesia as official name of its latest release (I didn’t write any)
  • Debian joins Fediverse by providing Mastodon, Peertube, Pixelfed social services (I didn’t write any)
  • Debian successfully recompiles all packages with Clang instead of GCC compiler (I didn’t wrote any either)
  • UbuntuBuzz is now HTTPS and with new design (I wrote announcement here)

Perhaps I forgot many other events.
