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.

I just thought some of you might find this amusing..btw I like Chinese music:

Many on here make themselves out to be accepting and open to new people. Yet Wil Wheaton gets so much abuse, he was forced off the platform.

Like I said, great work folks. ☹️

A conversation i recently had:
Me: You need to put on your privacy hat. When you are considering these things.

Them: Oh? Is that the tin foil one?

Me: It might be made of foil, yes...

Fosstodonians, send all the Tooooots!! 😁

I'm not a gamer, but I'd be well up for that.

Also, I just made up a word - "Fosstodonian" I like that!

Just installed brother ql-700(label printer) drivers on Debian Stretch. I am amazed. It actually works!!

@schlink I approve of Purism's decision there.

Walled garden systems with a single centralized server run by some guy are something we should reject.

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. 😀

Just need to wait for all my files to sync from my and I'm done. Goddam I love !

fatboy - Google Play Store needs an Open Source Category. A place where all good software/apps reside

If you like the idea of decentralized communication, using federated instances, you could maybe check out peertube. (Seeing as we are all about de-googleing and all)

@kev I am getting notifications now Kev.. Your?

Well,

Loving it.
