Nitrux 3.2 Released with Aesthetic FHS, Linux Kernel 6.6 LTS, and Updated Installer

Powered by the latest and greatest Linux 6.6 LTS kernel in the usual Liquorix flavor for uncompromised responsiveness, Nitrux 3.2 is here to introduce a new feature called Aesthetic FHS, which is a new file system hierarchy standard in an attempt to make the Linux FHS (Filesystem Hierarchy Standard) directories in the root directory more human-readable. A future release will replace Linux FHS entirely with Aesthetic FHS.

IRC Proceedings, Bulletins, and Upcoming Improvements

Under Construction Site

THE IRC logs over at Techrights are now published every morning at roughly the same time. Tux Machines will, over time, inherit some of the functionality of Techrights because the two sites are brought closer into alignment with a unified approach to the static page generators. Techrights covers less GNU/Linux-centric topics; that's what this site is for. Hopefully some time soon this site will have daily bulletins.
