Best Wishes 2024 !

Hello World, We are publishing our traditional Greetings Seasons post of the year ! 

Our Best wishes for 2024…

We are finally leave behind year 2023 and moving into year 2024.   We are kind of happy to move forward and start a new year.   We have been really busy last year and we have met many challenges.  We do not know how year 2024 will look like but we hope that it will help forget about the difficult past years and the successive crisis…. 

We would like to take the opportunity to thank all the people who have followed us during 2024 and provided feedback, shared their comments and technical info, remarks that helped us improved proposed solutions.   Thank you also to all the people that have been supporting us and helping us in improving the information provided through this blog.

We would like also to thank our customers and partners for the trust and confidence they have placed in us and to and helped us in providing high quality work…during this year 2023.  

We would like to present our best wishes to all of you for this new year 2023.  We hope that the coming year will be a more peaceful year…

Quick Look back at 2023…

In 2023, we have been struggling with a lot of projects and this impacted our capability to publish all the posts we would have loved to post….Even do, it was not easy, we managed to publish some posts during this year. We have been working on 

  •  Our famous xrdp-installer.  Through the year,  we have been publishing and releasing incremental version of our famous xrdp-installer script. Each version included either support to the Interim Release of Ubuntu OS or included some improvements.  The latest version (version 1.4.8) has been released recently.  A lot of minor improvements have been included which makes the script really useful and stable.  Thank you to all our readers for their feedback in order to improve and adapt the script as required
  • We managed to update the Change GDM Background script which help users customizing even further the look’n feel of their Ubuntu Operating system. This script was supposed to be discontinued but some people asked us to update it.. so, here you go 
  • We have been writing mainly about Ubuntu and xRDP package software     

What to expect in 2024…..

2024 is bringing a lot of changes and challenges.  Ubuntu 24.04 LTS will be released in April 2024 which means that we will need to look into this one.  Ubuntu 24.04 might bring major changes also at xRDP software level.   Gnome Desktop team is thinking of dropping X11 server and to use only Wayland Server.  This change could mean the end of the xRDP software solution if the maintainer will not come up with Wayland support.  We have seen that some discussions are ongoing and we will need to wait and see…

Last year, we have been busy with a lot of upgrade/update projects on Microsoft Technologies.  Microsoft focuses more and more on the Cloud but some enterprises are still running their infrastructure on premises.  Microsoft has made more and more difficult to run software like Exchange, Sharepoint, Skype on premises and you need to obtain Software agreement to access these software nowadays.  So, next year, we might write about MS technology again 

Surprisingly, we have been working in some companies where Microsoft footprint is shrinking drastically.  Most of the infrastructure is based on Linux Operating System (RedHat or Ubuntu). These companies are basically looking for MS alternatives and  when available they simply ditch the MS products.  We have been also working in some other companies where the Cloud seems to be the only move forward.  We might start blogging about Cloud solution as well… 

We do not have yet a roadmap for the coming year….but we think that it will be again a busy one with a lot of new challenges….So, stay tuned 

Final Notes

As you can see, there is still a lot to do and a lot to speak about but some little time available.  We will try to enjoy the short holidays to rest and come back with some news posts, ideas and some free tools or scripts…  This is it for this post ! Enjoy your holidays and get ready for 2024.  We wish you all the best for the future…Let’s hope that 2024 will bring us some good news….

Till next Time

See ya
