Can You recommend the debian / linux / free-software free
email-subscription / feeds - the ones You prefer?

Thanks for Your time and advice.

Sure, these are RSS feeds, no e-mail subscriptions anymore :-)

I also followed "Linux Devices¹" (linux hardware related news) but has
been recently adquired by a big magazine and the feeds are now gone :-(


Interesting, I always get bored by the actual magazines, and they are so
abstracted and removed from the community... Usually the closer I get to
the community and devs, the more I enjoy it.


They're mostly written for a non-technical audience and sometimes is
reassuring reading things in plain parlance.

I also visit from time to time "Debian Planet", a very good source to get
in touch with Debian forthcoming stuff. And also follow a couple of
general security feeds ("Security Focus" and "US-CERT") to keep in touch
with the latests security holes.

Although I use atom feeds a lot, I am thinking of using an atom to email
converter, especially if I set up a desktop email client.

I prefer keep things separate (kinda "divide and conquer" approach),
that's why I use:

- Pan (as newsreader for reading/post to mailing lists)
- Mutt (as e-mail client for personal things)
- Thunderbird (as e-mail client for work)
- Liferea (as news feeder for reading web magazines and newspapers)

(heck, I now realize why my RAM consumption reaches up to "1.5 GiB" :-P)

I can easily use Thunderbird as e-mail client, newsreader and also feed
reader and thus removing two programs but I don't like mix up these
things and dedicated applications have their own advantages.
