    Which Linux distribution do you use?

    I ended up using the script to finally get Arch installed. I had it operational. Trying to install a browser was a no go. Followed two different methods that seemed easy enough, but nope. One method I kept getting message that you can't install as root. I created an admin profile and then it...

    Which Linux distribution do you use?

    I agreed. But I was just attempting this to earn my Arch sticker.

    Which Linux distribution do you use?

    So far the experience has been rough. Finally managed to get it installed, but trying to get a browser installed has been a PITA. Have tried several different sets of directions and something goes up in smoke every time. With 2+ hours in installing and working on installing a browser, I'm about...

    Pine Me

    I was picturing a dinosaur, but it's quite a capable phone. I missed having a headphone jack at first but now prefer truly wireless earbuds. Do you have an Android or iOS tablet?

    Which Linux distribution do you use?

    I agree. I think I've installed about every major distro except Arch and Gentoo. I ordered a pack of Linux stickers and one of them is an Arch sticker. Want to put it on my Swift 3 but not until I can say I've actually installed and used it. The hardest for me to day was in the early 2000's. I...

    Last night I created an Arch bootable USB and have a guide to follow. Will probably being the process tonight.

    Pine Me

    I got the watch AND phone. Neither are daily drivers. If you buy one just go into it knowing you're purchasing a "hobby" device, then you won't be disappointed.

    Linux-friendly e-ink PineNote Oh no, now a PineNote. I never really got my PinePhone working that great, but still may need to buy this tablet! https://www.pine64.org/pinenote/

    A pretty fair panning of Elementary OS

    I know what you mean. And people deserve to be paid for their time and work. I don't take issue with them finding ways to monetize their work. They aren't going to get rich at it. I just take issue with their approach. It may be an issue with my thinking, but oh well. o_O

    A pretty fair panning of Elementary OS

    Points 1, 3 and 4 are a few reasons for me to avoid. But more than that, it's the attitude of the team. Also, I donate to any software I use, but elementary's approach of making you put a zero in the box if you can't afford a donation is pathetic. I feel like they try to shame you into donating...

    Linux Mint signs a partnership with Mozilla (Firefox)

    You can on Windows and Linux machines. For some reason I can't get rid of the annoying BAT icon in the address bar on a Mac. The only difference, I think, is that on Apple's OSes browsers are wrapped around WebKit somehow. Have no idea how that all works.

    HOLY....BLEEP!

    That's why I wanted one of their machines so bad. Probably the best Linux / Hardware coupling you're going to find. Maybe one day I'll save enough to get one. For now I'm doing the next best thing; Acer Swift 3 with Mint. For an 1/8 of the cost.

    Linux Mint signs a partnership with Mozilla (Firefox)

    I think Mint did the right thing. The biggest gripe people have are that when they update to 96, some of their defaults change. Easy enough to change back.

    Linux Mint signs a partnership with Mozilla (Firefox)

    The only thing I see that changed in FF 96 is that it switched my default search engine from DuckDuckGo back to Google. I'm starting to get sick of Brave's crypto crap and have switched back to FF as my primary browser.

    HOLY....BLEEP!

    You don't know me well. Or you think I'm out of my out of my gourd if you think I would pay $45K for that. lol I was specing them out for giggles.

    HOLY....BLEEP!

    I believe their prices will most like keep me from ever buying one new. Part of the cost is probably related to that fact that they manufacturer their own parts and build them in the U.S. Not going to be as cheap as having them manufactured in China, where parts and labor are much less.

    HOLY....BLEEP!

    Hopefully for that price, make breakfast in bed?
