Where I realized that my distro-hopping days are long behind me as I've been on elementary OS for nearly a year now
We ♥ Flatpak, and that’s why we’re building a new Flatpak store dashboard for AppCenter and anyone else like Flathub to use. Get some sweet rewards and help us reach our goal by backing our campaign. #AppCenterForEveryone https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/appcenter-for-everyone/
FINALLY I CAN TALK ABOUT IT!
@elementary OS has a bold new plan for the AppCenter, and to get Linux open source developers PAID.
Let's help them get there. I absolutely love this direction.
We’re taking our indie open source app store to the next level alongside folks from Endless, Flathub, and more. Check out our campaign and help us make it happen—plus get exclusive swag and other rewards! #AppCenterForEveryone https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/appcenter-for-everyone/
This is a nice milestone for two reasons:
1. The build pipeline means we should be able to get at least one ISO refresh spun and tested per month with that month’s updates. Great for hardware support and reducing downloads on new installs.
2. A fresh face on the blog! 😊

Chrome will block video ads that “people find to be particularly disruptive". Conveniently enough, YouTube ads are not so disruptive, so they most probably won't be touched.

elementary OS users: we need YOUR help! Yes, YOU specifically. We have a community-run support site at http://elementaryos.stackexchange.com. However, our small mod team can’t keep up! 😰 If you could take a couple of minutes answering or clarifying questions, it would help immensely. Thanks!
Back on September 14th, I started using #UbuntuTouch on my Nexus 4 as my daily driver.
Nearly 3 months later, I'm back to using my Pixel + Android.
Overall, Ubuntu Touch was a good experience. If we just look at OS-vs-OS, I think I do prefer UT over Android. Very intuitive UI, and things kinda just worked.
App support is much better on Android, but most of what I need has a web equivalent.
Ultimately, the tipping point was the hardware; my Nexus 4 struggles to get a signal in many places.

So... @tbernard and I (mostly Tobias, really) did a thing couple weeks ago for LAS cause we found the conference name to be orthogonal to its goals.
Here's a blog post version of it.
"There is no “Linux” Platform"
Special shootout to @elementary for being the inspiration and case study for it and doing a kickass job all over the place.
