Just installed on a 2014 and boy was that a trial by fire. Still can’t get the WiFi to turn on at boot, but it runs! Sadly, from a first time user’s perspective, the installation guide left a lot out on EFI partitioning for me—or maybe I just didn’t find it very accessible.

In any case it’s working well enough for me.

Feels good when your favorite reads your feedback on the show!

Valve funded development of "Xrdesktop" - lets desktop environments GNOME & KDE work in VR.

Xrdesktop is a project to interact better within a VR space for presenting on VR head-sets.

The amount of resources Valve is pouring to improve the Linux ecosystem is amazing.

They've hired / have funded GPU driver devs, DXVK, Proton (Wine) devs (CodeWeavers), Keith Packard to work on direct display extensions...

Keeping an eye on the weather with the Windy app from OpenStore while updating other apps on the Nexus. Handy. #UBports #ubuntu #ubuntutouch #linux #developer
Bryson boosted is looking for a new maintainer!

If nobody comes forward by 2020, it'll be forced to shut down. Please boost to spread the word.

Note that this is the podcast-sharing website: I'm not sure about the status of the app, but I think that's still doing fine.

Tried a cayenne rub this time on the grill! Came out great over the barbecue. Also my wife made a very American homemade potatoes salad which I never would have thought to do ourselves but there it is.

For those licking their lips waiting for a , we've got a lot of news for you today!

- Preorders launch on July 25th
- Built-in privacy switches
- The current OS outlook
- And more!

Anyone know of a blogging platform/software? I've been searching around without success. Mastodon is great, but I think I may need more than 500 characters sometimes for how-to's or guides I may write.

Reasons someone using a PC should change from Windows to Linux?

Linux distros have more respect for your privacy.

Just run Wireshark on both Windows and Linux; you'll see that Windows loves to constantly chat with MS-servers.

Average Linux distro is completely silent until you choose to interact with the internet.

Being the product vs. using the product.

Linux gives you control & transparency. Easier and more secure usage.

Please add Your point of view if you will!
