Yeesh. I rebuilt my ThinkPad yesterday, moving from Fedora :fedora: to Zorin :zorin:, and got around to my Mycroft :mycroft: configuration sometime around 1:30 in the morning today. Could NOT get things working with the AWS Polly TTS. I spent at LEAST 90 minutes today going back and fixing what my sleep deprived brain screwed up last night. It turns out I'm not in my 20s anymore, and my brain doesn't work as well as it used to in the wee hours of the morning.

@mike i installed it this morning after i tested on a vm yesterday. looks good. nice assistants. asks for my email and nextcloud accounts after installation. now testing to get my games running. i bet if you give 100 normal pc users a cd and a blank device, 60% will switch from windows. maybe it's really time to kick windows out. it the pro worth the money disregarding(? not native english) of supporting the project?

@DigitalInfinity Hard to say. I have the pro version, but I really went back and forth on whether or not to get it. For me, it really came down to the additional layout options. The rest of the Pro offerings probably wouldn't have swayed me. Normally the desktop layout options wouldn't have either, but I really like the distro, and all it took was a bare minimum to get me to support them with a couple extra bucks.
