Welcome to Episode 82 of Destination Linux
On this episode of Destination Linux, as we are down 1 host, we’ve made quite a few changes to the show. We are still in the process of making these changes so please bear with us still but I think there is a lot of potential for the future. This week, we discussed the latest news such as Ubuntu 18.04’s First Point Release, The Return Of Korora, Firefox Delivering Out-Of-Process Extensions To Linux, Windows may soon be gone with Desktop as a Service Replacing it, and we’ll talk about some Linux Gaming topics like the cool Battle Royale game, Crazy Justice coming to Linux. We are also adding a brand new segment for Tips & Tricks as well as Software Spotlights. All that and much more!

I just wanted to throw you a quick note about some really good news and great
uses on Linux. I am a Drafter / Designer by trade and have only been using
proprietary software on Windows to do 3D mechanical design work. I have
recently been using FreeCAD, which is a 3D Parametric solid modeler not too
different than the high cost, commercial offerings. It is feature rich and has
many modules for different engineering functions. This has been an exciting
discovery and journey for me. I have only begun scratching the surface of it
and the more I use it the more I like it. Some other noteworthy built in
modules include BIM (Building Information Modeler) for doing architectural
work and FEM (Finite Element Method) for doing some serious part or system
analysis. From a professional and personal standpoint, this is super exciting
to know that I am now free of the confinements of super expensive proprietary
software for hobby projects. These are cross platform tools not exclusive to
Linux but the point is, it is ON Linux and it works super well.
These are some exciting times!
