Planet Linux Australia (planet.linux.org.au) was started more than 15 years ago by Michael Davies. In the time since (and particularly before the rise of social media), it has provided a valuable service by encouraging the sharing of information and opinions within our Open Source community. However, due to the many diverse communication options now available over the internet, sites such as Planet Linux Australia are no longer used as heavily as they once were. With many other channels now available, the resources required to maintain Planet Linux Australia are becoming difficult to justify.
With this in mind and following the recommendation of Michael Davies, the Linux Australia Council has decided that it is time close Planet Linux Australia. Linux Australia would like to express its profound appreciation for the work Michael and others have done to initiate and maintain this service. Our community has greatly benefited from this service over the years.
