@MXLinux Indeed, it's great that the schools are making it easy for Zoom and whoever to spy on the kids.

Long Term Switched to Linux (2/2)

Lately I have been thinking about the importance of beauty a lot (probably because Roger Scruton passed away recently). I feel that in my choice of distro beauty is something I consider, even when I try not to, beacause I think I shouldn't by convention.

I think I will try out the following distros the coming month and then decide which I will use for the next 2 years:

- Deepin
- elementary OS
- Mint

(thanks @ChrisWere and @killyourfm for the inspiration)

Long Term Switched to Linux (1/2)

I've only been using Linux on the desktop (mostly laptops) for 2 years now. The main reason I switched is not so much the OS itself, but the planned obsolesence of hardware that comes with it.

Although I kind of like all the other reasons to switch to Linux, I honestly care less about them.

I have been using Ubuntu Budgie 18.04 LTS and plan to upgrade after the next LTS release. As I will do a fresh install anyway, I am considering alternatives...

Tried Mozilla Thunderbird as RSS reader for a while, but didn't like it for several reasons. Switched to Newsboat and added a send-to-pocket shell script on the bookmark-cmd for "reading it later".

The biggest downside of using WSL for me, is that sucks out all of the fun of using Linux. My employer already enforced Windows as primary OS, but now also decided that even desktop VM is a security risk.

Typically forgot to renew our Let's Encrypt certificate. Just renewed it after 2 days. Sorry for the possible inconvenience.


Figuring out how to configure my . Using GNU DIP with a free domain name (freedombox.rocks), so I can remotely connect to my home network.

Unboxing my freedombox on boxing day (with the 128Gb SD from the X-mas sale).

First impression: 's cute! I will name it "Idaho" (as in "My own private Idaho")

We added some new sections in the #PeerTube official documentation:

Hope it will help 👍

There has been lots of talk about CoC and political and other beliefs.
As I stated before in the past all are welcome here on LR. I don't care if you identify as a one eye purple people eater you are welcome here on LR. We will not ban anyone for their beliefs.

Here we don't care about your orientation, political or any other beliefs.
We welcome conversation and debates. We all know how to act like an adult and if you don't this instance is not for you.

Rise above it and talk Linux

I really believe PeerTube can use some more (non-crowdsourced) funding, like applying for the Mozilla Open Source Support Awards, but apparently Framasoft has "no time at all to dedicate to this program right now".

Seriously, Framasoft? No time to fill in a web form?

PeerTube v2.0.0 has been released. Update peertube.linuxrocks.online/ or wait for the first point release?

What happened to kezzbracey? She used to post a lot, but it seems she deleted all her social media stuff.

Not working on the desktop on saturday or sunday, so

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS / Pocillo theme (dark mode) / Pop icons

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.
