Welcome to Segfault!
Segfault is a place dedicated to bring you more news, faster, about all the cool stuff that we’re working on or that are related to what we’re working on :)
Of course there’s blog.linuxmint.com already, but that’s for a different audience, that’s where we address everybody and post official news and important announcements. Here on Segfault, we want to talk more about the development, on a daily basis, we want to chat about the technique and what’s coming next. We want to create a space where developers can address enthusiasts and people who want to know “more” and get them excited about what they’re working on.
The idea was born within the Cinnamon development team. People on cinnamon.linuxmint.com said they wanted more news and we weren’t keen on mixing announcements with dev. news. If we were talk about technique and development, there were also other topics, outside of Cinnamon, we wanted to cover. So the decision was taken to start a new blog, for a specific audience, to try and get a rough pace of one quick article a day, and to cover everything that was getting the development team excited, from Cinnamon to MATE, including the Mint tools, artwork, upstream software and even at times things outside of the scope of Linux Mint.
To be really honest here… nobody knows if this is going to work and what Segfault is going to end up being like. We’ll sure try having fun writing posts into it though and we hope you’ll enjoy it too ;)
