FOSS Weekly #23.13: New blendOS Linux Distro, New Rust Series, Ubuntu Cinnamon and More
The NixOS series was concluded last week. Though NixOS is a lesser-known, niche distro, the series was appreciated by many FOSSers (It’s FOSS readers).
This has given us the confidence boost to work on more tutorial series. openSUSE and Gentoo are on our target for the next distro series.
We are also starting a Rust tutorial series for beginners this week. For those who are into coding, this will provide a solid learning base for Rust programming.
💬 Let’s see what else you have this week:
- blendOS, a blend of all kinds of distributions
- Beginning of Rust tutorial series
- And more Linux news, open source applications, videos and memes

Layoffs in the tech industry show no sign of stopping. Not just in the US, it’s happening even in cost-effective geographies. This is the case when AI is still at the doorstep. As it picks up pace, Goldman Sachs predicts it will cut over 300 million jobs in the next ten years.
This is the beginning of a new series. Rust is an increasingly popular programming language. It is also the only language other than C to be allowed in Linux Kernel.
The Terminal Basics series continues and in the seventh chapter, learn about copying files and directories.
