FOSSverse? What’s that?

It’s basically the idea of unifying all things It’s FOSS with a single member account. When logged in to It’s FOSS, you can automatically log in to the comment section with the same profile. That was the first part.

The same member account is now valid on the It’s FOSS Community. You don’t have to manage a separate account for the Community anymore. Pro members also get ‘Pro’ badge on their profile in the Community.

Still not part of the It’s FOSS Community? That’s the place where you can ask your questions and clear your doubts. Do join.

In the last step towards FOSSverse, the same member account will also be valid on It’s FOSS News. Pro member accounts are already synced between the portals.

Eventually, you will have the same identity across the FOSSverse (all It’s FOSS web portals). I am super excited about it 🤩 and I welcome your feedback on this idea.

💬 Let’s see what you have in this edition of FOSS Weekly:

  • First look at Fedora-based risiOS Linux distro
  • Concluding the Rust series
  • Linux Mint update guide
  • And other Linux news, videos, puzzles and, of course, memes!
