Scribble the News

by Tom Faughnan

In our first meeting of 2022, we tried a new idea: “Scribble the News,” a pictionary-like game in which we attempt to guess which open source news story is being drawn.

Here are the news items we discussed:

  1. Zero-day in ubiquitous Log4j tool poses a grave threat to the Internet
  2. Ubuntu 21.04 (Hirsute Hippo) Will Reach End of Life on January 20th, 2022
  3. Pop!_OS 21.10 Introduces a New Application Library, GNOME 40, and a Refresh Install Option
  4. Ubuntu 22.04 Theme Replaces Purple with Orange (Like, Everywhere)
  5. Solus Linux Co-Lead Resigns, Joins Serpent OS and Plans to Fork Budgie Under a New Organization
  6. Linux Mint Partners with Mozilla to ‘Improve Firefox Experience
  7. Red Hat donates $10,000 to OBS Studio, their Flatpak to be official for Linux
  8. Wine 7.0 is a Massive Upgrade with Improved Windows App Support, New Theme, and More Improvements
  9. https://www.phoronix.com/forums/forum/phoronix/latest-phoronix-articles/1299874-steam-on-linux-ended-2021-at-1-11-marketshare
