Linus Torvalds Announces First Linux Kernel 6.10 Release Candidate

It’s been two weeks since the merge window for Linux kernel 6.10 opened, after the release of Linux kernel 6.9, which is slowly but surely making its way into the stable software repositories of some of the most popular GNU/Linux distributions (hint: it already landed in Arch Linux and openSUSE Tumbleweed).

Tux Machines places great emphasis on covering both GNU and Linux. We occasionally also cover other Free and Open Source operating systems, as well as games, applications, instructional posts, and, very occasionally, relevant proprietary software.
