We're finishing work on a new website that will go live on March 1.

It's been 6 years since we created the current one when MX Linux was just getting started, and a lot of water has gone under the bridge since then!

@Linux Was out with my wife at a cafe doing some work. She was using her Windows 10 laptop connected to her phones hotspot and I was using Ubuntu on mine.

Windows 10 decided to download updates which finished her monthly data plan and asked me to use my laptop to finish her work. Went back home later and asked me to install Ubuntu for her.

Just found out that GNOME Web supports WebP, even though Safari doesn't. Neat!

It makes me uncomfortable how people have adopted corporate language when talking about themselves on the internet. You are not a corporation or a persona. You are a whole person.

You don't have a "brand" – you have passions and interests. You don't "create content" – you share thoughts, words, ideas, knowledge, and a whole galaxy of other things.

There are plenty of people out there who want to categorise you and put you in a box. Don't help them to do this.

You're so much more than that. 💚

How about a "Micro$oft Monday" also here @ Mastodon ?

Please chime in everyone who have experienced the horror & nightmares of Windows 10.

Also M$ jokes and such would be nice for laughs :thinkhappy:

Want to use Nintendo's USB GameCube adapter on LINUX with no driver? This is for you!

Ethan Lee:

"You'll be able to take any game that uses SDL2, plug in your adapter, and play games with automatic configuration and full support for any hardware that the adapter supports.
