A useful software list for Ubuntu 18.04

If you’re using – or planning to use – Ubuntu 18.04 (Mitchie has just upgraded to that), here’s a list of 22 things to do after the upgrade / install. Of course you won’t have to do all of this, and most people using Linux will have some of that knowledge already. There are however […]
