Linux journal closing

Today marks the day when (mostly) open-source firmware for off-the-shelf modern servers becomes an option.
Open-source firmware is the right choice for humanity. As our devices effectively become extensions of our minds, it becomes critical that the hardware and software we use are trustworthy._

Hello all

iTunes has worked in wine for about 10 years, but the phone/tablet will never get system updates via that iTunes, updates only come down in Windows/Mac
I believe iTunes in a Windows VM on a Linunx host cannot even get updates for hardware
If you can get updates over mobile data than I believe most of iTunes will work “fine”, DRM video might have issues

next recording date will be Sept 6, 2019
Our music is “Downright” provided by Klaatu and Broam
We would like to thank Delwin for the use of his mumble server.
We would also like to thank “000webhost” for web hosting
Finally we would like to give a special thanks to Faherfinch, and Tony Beemus for all their help and support over the years.
