NixMashup for January 7, 2014

In this NixMashup we read what Ubuntu’s 2014 holds from the vantage point of Canonical Community Manager Jono Bacon. GnuCash 2.6 hits GetDeb, but you might want to hold off on upgrading. On the other hand, we’ve got 16 reasons for not putting off that upgrade to Linux Mint 16. Two entertaining Windows-to-Linux stories for you, one in attempts to thwart the NSA and the second to appease an 84-year-old Dad who thinks he got a Vista upgrade. Our clean energy news of the day is the achievement of converting algae to oil in less than an hour.
