Welcome to the January 2022 monthly roundup of Development resources. As you may have noticed I have shortened the title to Hot New Web Dev for this year. As usual, it will be full of the action-packed world of web design and development and also keep you posted on what’s going on in the tech world. This month we feature a look at the latest release of WordPress. Have you any thoughts on what’s going to happen with your Windows 10 computer when it comes to 2025! Let’s also see the latest in web design and development.
I recently installed Garuda Linux on my Lenovo Yoga laptop. I came across an issue where I couldn’t install the Microsoft version of Visual Studio Code as it wasn’t in any of the repositories. After a little digging, I came across a way you can install it from a git repo. This may also work on other arch Linux based distributions. Please let me know in the comments.
Happy New Year. Last year I watched a Garuda Linux review on YouTube and liked what I saw. I have been a long time Linux fan since 2007. The release of Windows Vista enticed me into trying alternatives. At first, I tested out a few. I tried Mandriva, PC Linux, Ubuntu, Linux Mint amongst the most common. At home, I use a Mac but like to fire up Linux often. For the past year, I have been using Ubuntu Budgie which is easy to use without too much configuration. I haven’t used the KDE desktop in a long time so it would be a nice change. Read on to see how the switch to an arch-based distro went.
