I have been using Debian for almost 20 yrs. In all that time I have tried many many distros and have yet to find one that I liked as well as Debian. Apt is just great. The number of packages available is awesome. It works on more hardware than other distros.




##linux and #slack among others have already created channels on Libera


$300 for a keyboard? Wow!!! Hey my PI400 cost $100 it included the built-in KB, mouse, power supply, HDMI cable. $300 for a KB is just plain insane.


Vivaldi is my default browser. I switched when Google removed sync from Chromium. Great browser and support community.



Agreed 100%. He also says VPNs are useless. A tweaked Firefox with Ublock Origin and one or two other extensions like NoScript, can be made to be a ton safer than Chrome/Chromium. As far as windows haven’t touched it in 20 yrs, and in that time not one of my Linux computers has been compromised.

Freetube is good on Linux. Uses Invidious, and gives you the links to download.


They obviously haven’t thought about all of the electricity that many vehicles would be using. And all the toxic chemicals in the batteries that will have to be disposed of sooner or later. Not to mention that China and India are the big polluters, until they do something to change what little change the USA can afford isn’t going to make a big difference.


I like the new look. But just like with every change, there are people having fits.
