Welcome to the Linux guide to web design 2022. I started using Linux in 2007 and have been a long-time fan ever since. It’s been 12 years since my original web design on Linux. During this time Linux has become more established and usable for novice users. If you own a Raspberry Pi you will more than likely use a Linux distribution. Without further ado, let’s check out what Linux has got to offer in the world of web design.
Linux, an open-source operating system, is a favorite among web developers due to its robustness and versatility. Offering unmatched flexibility, Linux allows developers to configure and customize their environment precisely to their needs. Its security features, combined with a strong community of users, make it a preferred choice for hosting and developing a myriad of web applications.
Welcome to the February 2022 edition of the latest web development technologies. This month in hot web dev we will feature data structures and algorithms and why they are important. If you love Linux but want to try something new, take a look at the distributions to try out in 2022. As always there is the usual coding and web design resources.
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.
In this edition of a trip down memory lane series, we feature the rise of Linux over the last decade. Starting with an unusual introduction to Linux to the distributions I have discovered, used and installed on many computers over the decade. Long live Linux!
Welcome to WOW Weekly.TalkTalk made big news last week when a massive cyber attack compromised the details of all it’s customers. TalkTalk have since announced the attack wasn’t as bad as first feared but will this be enough for the customers that want out! From Warty Warthog to Wily Werewolf Ubuntu is 11 years old!

Gnome has released a new version of their popular desktop and tool of the week is pretty useful if you are a blogger.
Welcome to this week’s version of WOW weekly. In this edition, I will bring you all of my favourite picks of the week as well as my round-up design and development resources. This week we will be discussing all things Linux with news on Valve announcing the future release of SteamOS.
Converseen is a all-in-one batch image conversion, compressing and resizing tool that is available for both Linux (Source and PPA) and Windows. Like many web designers having to process images to make them suitable for the web you may have to use a variety of different tools, I have used Shrink-O-Matic to batch resize my images, GIMP and it’s save for web plugin to compress individual images and also Trimage batch image processor. Having to use 2 or more tools to convert, compress and resize images can be very time consuming so having a tool to do all of those jobs for you will be extremely productive.
Web design on Linux is possible although Microsoft and Apple computers are no doubt the web designer’s choice when it comes to creating websites.

Here are a few of those tools to get your creative juices flowing.
