      Not really a blog, but https://lwn.net/ by far. Some of the best reporting on current events regarding Linux. Also the only site where I pay to read articles, well worth it.

        Opened this to second this. Very good insights (though there’s a lot of opinions, it’s clearly coming from a place of knowledge). Almost every post leads me to re-evaluating stuff around me to good effect.

      A lot of good ones have been mentioned like Wandering Thoughts blog and kmandla’s blog.
      Here are some quality blogs with thoughtful ideas (the ones I can remember right now):

      1. 4

        Arabesque’s Unix as IDE posts (from 8 years ago) were really formative for me. Great to see that blog is still alive and kicking.

        1. 3

          Arabesque’s ed posts made fall in love with ed. It is not a joke or sarcasm, I really take time from now and them to think about interaction design of a line editor what could be gained from. It is mostly useless in practice but I just keep doing it for the fun and pleasure.

      2. 2

        venam’s own blog has many deep dives into unixy topics: https://venam.nixers.net/blog/

      Solene’s percent - Solene is an OpenBSD developer who dabbles in NixOS and often writes about it her experiences in both!
