*Linux Laptop Wiki [Rebooted]*

The aim of the website is to provide a central wiki to post experiences with Linux on the model of laptop / notebook you're using. is an attempt to 'reboot' the abandoned and spammed linlap dot com which is now unusable.

Please consider participating on building a new "HQ" sending in your model / experiences!

Any help appreciated!

A guess is that all of these developers are taking a HUGE PAY CUT to work on Godot rather than getting cushy jobs at big tech companies, which they are no doubt highly qualified for.

Godot: a FREE & Open Source game engine is $200 shy of being able to hire their 3rd full time contributor!

Godot is in the same league as the current commercial ones, with many innovations in workflow, features and usability.

A complete editor, dedicated 2D and 3D engines, animation tools, multi-platform exports, plugins, a Free asset store +more.

Please contribute if able; times of much change are upon us.
