#introductions My first toot!
I'm a C++ developer, currently studying & working in the area of computational physics and gpgpu programming. Been a user for many years, but finally this year decided to give a go. Also very excited for PinePhone later this year!
Now let's figure out this thing (you can see I already found the emoticons...).
@Hunaja It's the kind of slang my grandparents (born 100 years ago) would have used. Nobody around now says it.
@Hunaja Welcome aboard!
@Hunaja A tip is to use "Profile directory" under Getting started. Another is to search hashtags of interesting stuff and then follow people through there. You'd want at least about a 100 to get a nice feed. Then you can make a 'list' with people you are extra interested in.
@Hunaja welcome, nice now I know who to direct my c++ questions too lol.
@Hunaja howdy! I’m also interested in giving Arch a try and the PinePhone is on the top of my list! Do you currently use a Linux phone?
@bhibb No, I'm still a slave to . I've had the same phone for roughly five years now and it's slowly starting to go mad, so I've only started researching different options. PinePhone seems to me the most interesting, although there's the option of using Sailfish X with different Sony Xperias. But that's not Linux.
Give a go, it's very educational and in the end not that much more complicated.
@Hunaja @beerw0lf agreed with you two. I listen to @ubuntupodcast and they mentioned something negative about the promises of the #librem5 and though I haven’t done any research, it gave me pause at least.
