Highlights from this week's ROALUG Twitter feed:
The new version of Fedora 22 was released yesterday, May 26, 2015! This new version has the Linux kernel 4.0.4, GNOME 3.16 and a new package manager replacing YUM.
Heading to Charlotte, NC and will be updating Twitter during the event:
Hope to see you there!
Changes coming soon to the next version of Ubuntu include a new desktop graphics engine (replacing X-server) and software package manager. Snappy Core and Snappy Personal will be options to choose from, in addition to the traditional Debian core.

Mark your calendars! The dates for the SouthEast LinuxFest 2015 has been announced:June 12-14, 2015
On a budget? Need a basic workstation and prefer to use Linux/Open Source software? Want to have a planet-friendly alternative for computing?
Got one of these on order and will demo it at a future ROALUG meeting. Stay tuned!
Not directly Linux related, but may be of interest: RadioShack will be closing down several stores and filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. See the announcement here on Fox Business. This site lists the stores that are closing. Appears the store at the Valley View Mall is on that list.
Sad to see them go, but right now might be a good time to snatch up some good deals! Although, isn't that a bit like a vulture waiting for dinner to die? :-)
