Linux and FoSS are awesome, but sometimes there are elements of it that need to be discussed at length - this is where Freedom Penguin's "For The Record" video series comes in. I'll discuss important Linux/FoSS issues while providing ideas and feedback on how to make Linux even better.

Who is this guy and what is a Freedom Penguin?

Hi, my name is Matt Hartley. If you've followed Linux in the press for the past 10+ years the odds are excellent that you've seen my name float about on podcasts, articles, and various how-to content. I've been writing and producing various forms of useful Linux content for Linux users of all experience levels.

Some of my more notable experiences include:


What is this Patreon about?


Addressing the successes and failures of the Linux desktop is something I've had a great deal of experience with. Even better, I also happen to have some pretty good ideas on how to make our Linux experiences better. Funding this Patreon campaign will allow me to produce an open dialog video series thanks to your support.

It takes a community

Join me, let's discuss the different ways we can make Linux and FoSS even more awesome than it already is. As this video series grows, I'll be looking at feedback from the community and adjusting the series format to make sure this project is a runaway success.

Let's do this!
