Hi all, Trent here with a long-overdue update.
As those of you who have been following The Linux Critic blog for a while now probably already know, I was unemployed for a good chunk of 2009, and one of the things I did to keep myself sharp in the world of technology was this blog.
Well, I have some good news and some bad news.
The good news is, I found a job! And it’s a good one! My commute is 45 minutes each way, but it’s for a great company, and I have a lot of autonomy to figure out how to do things, which is the way I like it.
However, the bad news is, I haven’t had the time or inclination to keep up with this blog!
My good friends Joe and Patrick have been kind enough to contribute here and there over the past two months, but I have been dreadfully remiss in tackling some of the topics about which I really still want to write!
So, I want to give some assurances to those of you who have been waiting eagerly for another review, rumination, rescue, or rant (and you know who you are out there ;)).
One, I’m not abandoning this blog. I put a lot of work into Linux Critic over the summer and fall and I love what it has become, and I think it can become a lot more.
Two, while I won’t be posting three or four articles a week anymore like I had been, I still plan to get into a regular cycle of new posts on a variety of topics I still want to tackle.
Here are a few things I have in mind for upcoming topics if you keep an eye out:
- Ubuntu 9.10 and the upgrade process on my old laptop
- Linux Mint and my main desktop rebuild
- My ongoing search for an Amarok replacement in a world without KDE
- Linux offerings disappearing and reappearing from major PC vendors’ product lists
… and much, much more!
So for those of you still paying attention, thanks for sticking around, and keep watching, there’s more to come!
