I miss Tony’s gaming news. Would anyone be willing to continue this? I know it’ll be hard to match the same level of enthusiasm.
This isn’t as nice to look as the old site. 🙁
It’s utilitarian to the max! Which I quite like, as it happens.
Anyway, after they switched over, they asked if anyone wanted to volunteer to work on the site. Perhaps you’d be interested.
Don’t forget Ubuntu Studio
