I've explored into the topic and produced some sample in this article. 👇

I would love an extension to bypass consent form. 😒

There are a lot of positive aspects: absolutely silent, doesn’t heat up, amazing battery life but I’m not that impress by the software.

I have a Thinkpad X1 Carbon from 2015 running and apps like Firefox often lauch more quickly on the Thinkpad. Updates on the Mac take so much time in comparaison. Time Machine, the backup app, is still extremely slow.

I received a new MacBook Air M1 at work to replace an old HP laptop running Ubuntu. I must say build quality is still impressive and the sound quality 😱

Can we please, please – PLEASE! not make the nonsensical US date format month/day/year the default in applications? 🤦‍♂️


And to all users of that format: it makes no sense, it's counter-intuitive, it makes collaboration frustrating, it introduces inconsistencies and errors... Just stop. Please. Use international standards.
(And don't get me started on your other units of weights, volumes and distances. Bloody hell.)

Boost if I'm right.

Incredible quality of artwork in the submissions for the @inkscape 1.1 splash screen competition. So many world class artists "drawing freely" using #OpenSource. Warms the cockles of my heart 💕

I want to buy a house within the next ten years.

Aside from money and a good credit rating, how do I get there? What do I need, what should I know? Where do I start?

please boost. I know there are others thinking about this now

My old gmail address is in the data leak. Time to change passwords for all services linked to this account. I know what I will do this week-end.

: Check your and accounts (or get away from them) « More than 3.2 billion unique pairs of cleartext emails and passwords have just been leaked on a popular hacking forum, aggregating past leaks from Netflix, LinkedIn,, Bitcoin and more. This leak is comparable to the Breach Compilation of 2017, in which 1.4 billion credentials were leaked » ⚠️

Lot of shortcuts don’t work on elementary os. I think there is a conflict with system keyboard shortcuts.
