    goal of this topic is to buildup a list of recommended newsy sources
    news + current events

    For now, I’m skipping mention of any specific YouTube channels ~~ please chime in to mention any that you, personally, follow and recommend.

    ? is “Tips-n-Tricks” the more suitable subforum placement for this (TBD)

    http://forum.mxlinux.org
    https://www.reddit.com/r/MXLinux
    https://www.reddit.com/r/linux

    Yes, by design, not all of the listed items will be penned as clickable links
    lwn.net
    linux.softpedia.com
    pclosmag.com/html/enter.html
    distrowatch.com/dwres.php?resource=headlines
    reddit.com/r/linux
    linuxtoday.com
    lxer.com (lotta overlap between content here and linuxtoday)
    tuxmachines.org
    omgubuntu.co.uk
    gamingonlinux.com ( and its new spinoff site: lifeonlinux.com )
    ocsmag.com
    ubuntuhandbook.org ( provides intros/reviews of various software )

    mentioned, but not necessarily “recommended”:
    phoronix.com
    fossforce.com
    thelinuxrain.com
    iwf1.com/tag/linux/ ( publishes approx 3–4 new linux / apps articles each month) (noted: no new articles in linux category since Sept2017)

    https://www.howtogeek.com/t/linux/
    Although a link to “linux” category is currently absent from the howtogeek.com site’s masthead, they’ve published hundreds of linux-related articles 2006– present.
    Approx 10 new linux articles per month.
    Comments for each article are displayed to a forum topic page, and quality of the comment contents are often quite informative.

    overheard:
    Quite a few of the TWiT.tv channels have good up-to-date information if you like the format.

    reminder:

    A post within my parallel topic at MX Linux forum http://forum.mxlinux.org/viewtopic.php?f=101&t=41613#p412629
    presents an additional “wall-of-text listing” of 60 newsy sites (is an April2017 copypasta of someone else’s list)

    site has published hundreds of articles providing an intro/overview of various desktop programs
    https://www.addictivetips.com/ubuntu-linux-tips

    All things tech. Not strictly Linux, but it gets an equal mention with everything else…Great humourous style!
