HowTos Are Moving to Tux Machines

AS noted in the previous post/article, we're attempting to avoid duplication of effort across sites.

If you value the howtos that we post here on a daily basis (in Daily Links), head over to Tux Machines and subscribe to the site's feed. It has about 3-4 batch of howtos every day.

For Techrights, at least for now, the howtos below will be the last batch for a while. We try to focus more on stories and less on technical documentation. HowTos (or howtos) are very important in their own right, but they can easily distract from the news and howtos are usually quite timeless or time-insensitive.
