Lunduke's Favorite Stories of 2022

News, history, & satire. The computer-y articles that Lunduke found the most interesting over the last year.

2022 has been a big year for The Lunduke Journal. A big year, filled with big articles.

What follows are some of my personal favorites — not necessarily the most popular articles… but the ones that I found the most interesting. Or that made me smile the most.

A few news items, some historical pieces, and a few bits of satire. All over the map, really.

Presented here, in no particular order. Because putting them in order was too hard.

Also… I was going to do my “Top 10 Favorite”. But that was too hard too. So… there’s 12 of them.


  1. Firefox Money: Investigating the bizarre finances of Mozilla

  2. BREAKING: The Lunduke Journal predicts 37% more buzzwords in 2023

  3. The computers used to do 3D animation for Final Fantasy VII... in 1996.

  4. Linus Torvalds threatens to punish developers by putting Rust in the Linux Kernel

  5. DESQview/X : The forgotten mid-1990s OS from the future

  6. Linux Sucks 2022

  7. Local man switches to Arch, tells no one

  8. Wendin-DOS : The forgotten multi-tasking, multi-user DOS clone from the 1980s.

  9. The wild events that nearly took down the QB64 project (but, thankfully, didn't)

  10. W: The Window System before X... that nobody seems to remember

  11. Who is the (real) first Computer Programmer?

  12. The story of the first "computer bug"... is a pile of lies.

Heads up: Just until Friday at midnight, I’m making the Lifetime Subscriptions available again for The Lunduke Journal. This was requested, and I’m happy to oblige. But I can only make these available for a short window. So, if you want one, now’s your chance.

Check out this post on with full details on how to sign up for the full Lifetime Sub. It’s a pretty sweet deal. No paying ever again, full access to both Locals and Substack for life… can’t go wrong.
