I've always been an LTS Ubuntu guy. However, as Canonical seems to be getting cozier and cozier with Microsoft, I've decided to move two of my laptops away from Xubuntu: one's running Manjaro Xfce; the other, MX Linux 19. So far the experience's been great on both distros. We'll see where this takes...
@Katsudon @Ghosty I finally got the Moto G7. Played with it for a week to check that all the hardware worked properly. Then I nuked Android and replaced it with Lineage. The Lineage 16.0 build for this device didn't play well with OpenGApps. I had to reflash the device and I got it working with MindTheGapps. Totally worth it. Best mobile experience I've had. Thanks guys, once more, for suggesting good devices and being so helpful.
Thanks for suggesting the Linksys WRT line, @Ghosty! Got this little used WRT AC1200 for 50 bucks, replaced the stock firmware with OpenWrt and it's been awesome! I love this instance and the people who make it great! 💪🏻👍🏻
So I've been playing around with OpenWrt on my EdgeRouter X and it's been great. So great that I've been thinking about getting a good budget router with wireless support, putting OpenWrt on it, turning my ISP's router into a bridge to the outside Internet and just letting this new router handle everything on my home network. Any suggestions on any good budget routers to do this? My budget is 150 USD at max.
Been playing around with some hardware I have at home. First, I replaced EdgeOS with OpenWrt on my home office EdgeRouter X. It's worked like a charm. Then, I took a Raspberry Pi 3B, put a 64GB USB drive on it as external storage and installed Syncthing. As Syncthing doesn't support either client-side or server-side encryption natively, I'm just using CryFS to encrypt all data on my Linux boxes before it's syncrhonized to the Pi. Thanks to all the people who make using these projects possible.

I hardly listen to JB anymore, but it bothers me when they talk about the death of Bitcoin or the death of crypto. It reminds me of the huge difference I think there is between living in the first world and living here in the underdeveloped/third world --or whatever PC term you want to use. I think they don't know what it is like to go through hyperinflation, to watch your savings go to naught or to live under a dictatorial regime that uses currency as a form of control. I hope they never do.
