FOSS Weekly #23.16: Fedora 38 & Ubuntu 23.04 Released, ChatGPT in Terminal and More
A day late? I deliberately delayed the newsletter so that you get all big releases in the form of Ubuntu 23.04 and Fedora 38. All official flavors of Ubuntu 23.04 are available as well. The interesting news is that the educational distro Edubuntu has made a comeback.
Terminal Basics Series ends this week with the tenth chapter. I plan to cover command examples next. Not sure if it can be in the form of a series.
💬 Let’s see what else you have in this edition of FOSS Weekly:
- ChatGPT like AI in the terminal
- Continuation of the Rust series and conclusion of the Terminal Basics series
- Introducing the new and improved commenting system
- More Linux news, videos, and of course, memes!
