This month in Linux Voice.

The privacy issues surrounding search engines are well known to Linux users. Do one search and the ads follow you everywhere. The open source community recoils at such displays, but where to turn? Maybe you have heard of DuckDuckGo, but have you heard of Ecosia, the search engine that uses a portion of their profits to plant trees, or Searx, a search engine that searches the open APIs of 70 other search engines? This month we introduce you to five alternative search tools, and we even show you how to set up an engine that searches your own website. Elsewhere in Linux Voice: Document your desktop with the Menyoki screencast tool, and organize your office workflow with SeedDMS.
