We discuss popularity contest being removed from Ubuntu, 19.10 going EOL, KDEs cross-platform storefront and Linux adopting inclusive language. We also round up our picks from the wider tech news and share an event; remember those!

The ‘Inclusive Language’ carry on is just silly. It’s more looking for racism where there isn’t any. The world is going PC mad more and more each day. What’s next? Banning/burning books? I wish people would be more rational and think more with their head over their heart.
Martin, how are the terms inappropriate? You will always have whiners that’ll find offence at something – the issue is with them.
Should the word black box in airplanes be banned? /s
How about banning the great sitcom, Black Books? /s
Yes, using Evince to fill out a PDF form is clunky. My method is to annotate a PDF using Xournal++ and export the finished version to a PDF when I’m finished. With Xournal++, one can control text size and location completely, and making editing changes is easy.
