About Us

Linuxiac is an independent media platform that publishes the latest news from the Linux world and Open Source software. Here, you’ll primarily find articles about Linux in general. Founded by Bobby Borisov and launched in May 2020, it quickly became a trusted source for all things Linux.

In addition to news coverage, Linuxiac provides how-to articles, application reviews, and tips & tricks. Covered topics include Linux distributions, desktop customization, system administration, open-source tools, virtualization, etc.

Our Linux & Open Source News

Linuxiac’s primary focus is providing users with the latest news from the Linux and Open Source world. Our team adheres to internal quality standards for published information, which we never compromise.

Quality, credibility, showing deep expertise in the subject presented, and explaining in clear language have always been and will continue to be the Linuxiac team’s top priorities when providing Linux news. Because of this, every news story is revised multiple times before publication to ensure that we provide our users with the best-presented and most trustworthy information. And that we truly understand what it is all about.

Finally, we are proud of how we cover the latest Linux and Open Source news and our level of expertise, but most importantly, we are proud of you – our readers. You are our most valuable asset and the most significant performance indicator. So, thank you for your trust!

Our Linux Tutorials & Open Source Reviews

Aside from Linux news, Linuxiac offers ‘How to’ tutorials closely related to Linux and Open Source technologies on everything from simple desktop customization to virtualization and containerization technologies and installing and configuring complicated Linux services.

We might not openly claim to have top-notch tutorials and reviews out there (even if we’re tempted to think so), but we do put our heart into offering our readers nothing but the best. It’s something that fills us with genuine pride. If you’re ever in doubt, just peek at any of our guides. They speak volumes about our expertise and the quality we bring to the table, far more than any words we could say here.

Furthermore, each of them is accompanied by multiple images, aiming to provide users with the most clarity on the actions they need to take. We describe each step in detail and in as simple a language as possible. Most importantly, we are confident in claiming to be experts in every subject for which we have a published guide.

How do we do it? We typically go through multiple rounds of revisions for every article, trying to perfect the clarity. Moreover, before writing a tutorial, we thoroughly evaluated everything in our test lab as long as possible to guarantee you will achieve the results shown when you follow it.
