Just because you CAN learn how to do something, and actually LEARN how to do something, doesn't mean you want to spend the time doing it.

This philosophy applies to everything in life, from which Linux distro you use, to what car you drive, to whether you cook or you order out for dinner, etc.

Hi , me again, thanks for the quick fix with the addons problem. I'll let my friends, who were trying out alternative browsers, know it's ok to get back to you again.

RE: Addons disabled

Hi , no problem, I’ll will read books in the meantime. I’ll check back on you on Monday.

If you're an avid open-source user who would love to help advance a project, there's a lot you can contribute whether you can program or not:

Provide constructive feedback, file bug reports, improve the documentation or help out maintaining the web & social media presence. Spread the word and recommend the projects you love to others (btw, I run Arch 😂)

Say "thank you" and tell developers to "keep up the great work". That form of contribution means a lot more than you could possibly imagine.

Today I passed the Linux Essentials exam. I rock.

I built a budget gaming PC with a HP 8200 SFF and a GT 1030 graphics card. It's currently running Windows 7, but I want to switch it to Linux. Is SteamOS a good option? Or should I just use Ubuntu?

I just finished reading "Free as in Freedom 2.0". Oddly enough I took the liberty of reading this entirely on my iPhone. Not sure of RMS wouldn't raise an eyebrow...

I couldn't help myself and bought a third cheap Thinkpad (X220) at an online auction. I'll probably try out Manjaro + i3 on this one.

This is what I use daily at work. Ubuntu Budgie on VMWare. Pocillo theme + dark mode.

I have just finished "The Linux Command Line". I recommend it for those who are new to GNU/Linux. linuxcommand.org/tlcl.php

Hi there! I'm a old-school developer working for a Dutch national archive. My interests are computers, history and chess and the combinations of these.
