LinuxWelt 4/2022 at the kiosk: DIY Linux!

In the new Linux world you can read, among other things, how to put together your perfect system. We also present the new Ubuntu 22.04 LTS in detail. Now at the kiosk and in the PC-WELT shop.

The new Ubuntu with Long Term Support is here and not only delivers many improvements, but also a tangible bone of contention. In version 22.04 LTS, the standard browser Firefox is only available as a snap package. Snap is a container format for Linux used primarily by Ubuntu maker Canonical. It offers benefits but is controversial in the Linux community. Still, Canonical pushes it through. The disadvantages of Snap include that Snap programs often start slower and are always significantly larger than their commonly installed counterparts. Perhaps the most critical point, however, is that the Snapcraft snap store is controlled by Canonical. A real no-go for many open source advocates. Because that is a break with the open structure of Linux. Canonical doesn’t seem to care. In our special on the new Ubuntu, we not only report on the current problems with Snap, but also present the many interesting improvements in version 22.04 LTS, such as kernel 5.15 and desktop Gnome 42.

You can read that and much more in the new LinuxWelt 4/2022 – order now at the kiosk or conveniently in the PC-WELT shop!
