Greetings all. I was surfing about and came upon an app on f-droid tied to A very interesting place with, chat, forums, cloud storage, and diaspora, all together, free( like in freedom), and available singularly, or together.

Just installed Bunsenlabs on this dinosaur at work. It was running Windows XP...couldn't even install LibreOffice... Now it is a functional machine with a modern OS. Installed Budgie for those who need something more conventional.

So, 30 minutes after installing and my BRAND NEW system is ready to go. Literally, everything is configured and all my apps are installed - my new install script worked a treat and it saved a tonne of time. 😀
