Further to this unless a distro/app/person is VERY well known, I often generalise or contextualise it in a headline:
"Regolith, the i3-based Linux Distro, Adds Foo"
Not everyone knows "Regolith", what it is, etc.
"New Linux Phone Goes on Sale"
vs "CherryMax Pro Goes on Sale"
The former tells you a phone powered by Linux has gone on sale. And if you like Linux, why you'll care.
The latter just tells you *something* has gone on sale, with no broader info.
Spoiler: the swedish PM hasn't actually stepped down. It's just an example 😅
The role of a headline is to give you the broadest outline of a story, not to explain every detail to you (that's what the article is for).
"Swedish PM Steps Down" is a headline.
"Swedish PM Steps Down to Pursue Art" is also fine.
"Stefan Löfven, current Prime Minister of Sweden, a country in Europe, is giving up his job, which is currently head of state, because he wants to spend more time drawing kittens (drawing is a form of art which he enjoys)" is not a headline.
