ExTiX 19.3 Is the First OS to Ship with Linux Kernel 5.0, Based on Ubuntu 19.04

GNU/Linux developer Arne Exton released a new version of his ExTiX Linux distro that has been rebased on the upcoming Ubuntu 19.04 operating system and ships with Linux kernel 5.0.

ExTiX 19.3 is now available and it appears to be the first stable GNU/Linux distribution to ship with the recently released Linux 5.0 kernel.

Microsoft’s New Skype for Web Doesn’t Support Linux and Mozilla Firefox

Microsoft has released the new Skype for Web, letting users chat with their contacts without the need for installing a desktop client.

And while this is possible using nothing more than the browser, the new version of the service comes with some unexpected limitations.

First and foremost, Microsoft says that you must be running Windows 10 or macOS 10.12 or higher to be able to connect to Skype for Web, which means that Linux isn’t officially supported.
Furthermore, the only browsers that are compatible with the new Skype for Web are Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge, so you won’t be able to use Mozilla Firefox to chat in the browser.

Obviously, there are ways to get around these limitations, and changing the user agent in the browser is the easiest of them all, but by the looks of things, Microsoft’s transition to the Chromium engine means Firefox users might be left behind when it comes to improvements they get on Microsoft services.
