Update 2: Don't be like me, remember to add your contacts from your previous phone. Otherwise you might miss a semi-important call from your mother.

On the plus side, the Messaging app works great.

Just re-upping this offer: because being comfortable with git is a barrier to entry to many FS/OSS projects, and because I care deeply about lowering those barriers, I will tutor anyone who asks for help with git, and/or connect them with any mentor(s) they might prefer.

I'll do this while I put energy and work into making the tool more approachable, and into making better tools and learning paths.

Boosts gratefully appreciated.


Update 1: The switch is going well so far.

...That's less a testament to how good is (which it is really good), but moreso how little I actually use my phone, anyway.

Thoughts on Enso OS 

To reboot for updates, or to try beating my uptime record for this installation...

I did an overview of , as they recently released version 15. It was a fairly polished experience, but I had some concerns... youtu.be/jFWvCSAu6xY

I've been using Pinafore for Mastodon for a long while now, but I've gotta say, I'm really liking the new default Mastodon interface.

I can understand the appeal of the original, multi-column view---which is still available to use---but this looks a lot better to me.

Recorded a first impressions video of (probably going up tomorrow), and it's pretty good overall.

I'm not usually a fan of a heavily-customized GNOME (like what Manjaro does), but I do like Zorin's implementation. Feels really polished.

Users have asked us about a dark style preference in elementary OS. In our latest story, Cassidy dives into the research and prior art around dark styles, plus shares how it could be achieved not only in elementary OS, but across desktops. buff.ly/2HnNaII

Random tidbit: elementary users have paid hundreds of dollars for my little apps in AppCenter, even though it's not required. All other distribution methods combined (including Flathub, Fedora, etc.) have grossed $9. From one person.

Today we've updated the Librem One website with two important documents:

A short guide to staying safe online no matter what online service you are using. Like our policy document we've kept it short and to the point, with links to more detailed, independent resources if you'd like to learn more.


As well as a code of conduct that makes it clear we will respond to reports of harassment, for example on Librem Social, our opt-in social network.
