Destination Linux Network launched in September of 2019 as a central hub for Linux and open-source content creators and the community.
The goals is simple, we want to help accelerate and promote the growth of open-source and Linux leveraging the incredible community behind Destination Linux and all of our partners such as This Week In Linux, DasGeek, Sudo Show, and a growing list of others that share our core values.
DLN brings the best of the community together and provides a welcoming and inclusive place for everyone to use, learn, and enjoy Linux and open-source.
Bringing these sizable communities together also allows us to give back like never before. Join our Discourse forums so you can participate in picking charities that focus on causes like privacy, security, digital divide, and issues that are important to us all. Giving back is an important part of our mission.
