FOSS Weekly #23.18: Ubuntu 18.04 to Discontinue, Debian 12 Features, Qemu VM and More
Ubuntu 18.04 LTS is reaching its end of life by the end of the month. What to do now? We have a few suggestions. Debian 12 is gearing up for next month’s launch. Time to check its features.
The motto of It’s FOSS is to educate on Linux and open source. And this is why I don’t want to restrict access to educational content. However, I also want to give ‘something extra’ to our Pro members to thank them for their support.
For that, we have created a puzzles section. Pro members can log in with their accounts and play the puzzles (crossword, find the word, etc.) online. This is fun content. So the paying supporters get extra, and everyone gets to read and learn from the educational content.
💬 Let’s see what else you have in this edition of FOSS Weekly:
- We continue our Rust Basics series
- An early look at GNOME’s new camera app
- Interview with Stu Keroff, a teacher who built Linux-based computer lab
- More Linux news, videos, and of course, memes!

🤣 Meme of the week
There is an impostor among us! Ubuntu users will understand 🙂
The 4th of May is observed as Star Wars Day. The date originates from the pun “May the Fourth be with you”, a variant of the famous Star Wars catchphrase “May the Force be with you”.
We, FOSSers, could rephrase it as ‘May the FOSS be with you’?
🧩 Puzzle (for Pro members only)
This week’s puzzle is a crossword consisting of popular open source applications for Linux.
