I don't always write an angry customer letter, but when I do, I use #libreoffice.
So, I installed #fedora last night. Performed updates, enabled #rpmfusion and enabled the #Steam and #Nvidia repos (but did not install anything). Then I took the system through a reboot and was welcomed with a #grub screen that leads to a totally black screen if I pick any of the entries. In the black screen, no keystrokes except for CTRL ALT DEL work. I can't get to any other TTY either. This is not a good start for #fedora. I am mildly frustrated.
So the poll just ended. It looks like #fedora is the clear winner. It's going to take some getting used to, but I am really looking forward to pure #gnome and a semi-rolling distro! It's exciting. That's what I love about #linux...the choices, the freedom, the goosebumps! It might be a challenge to get #nvidia drivers to install on #fedora, but in the end, it will all be worth it.
This #whalebird (client for Mastodon) input box must be changed to a YES | NO.
It almost always gets me and I press Cancel to cancel!
It was a toss up between #Fedora32 and #ubuntu2004. I like how #fedora uses vanilla #gnome, ships on a smaller ISO file, and I can use my 2GB flash drive for it. But, in the end, #ubuntu won because of more available software and built-in #snap support. I had to use a microsd card from a #blackberry passport phone and plug it into a microsd-to-USB adapter that I had laying around from a #raspberrypi4 kit. It actually worked and saved me from having to buy more flash drives. Now, on to #ubuntu!
I realize that the ponts on #foldingathome have no instrinsic value but serve as a fun measure for motivation. Is anyone else having disparity in WorkUnits and Points? My identity is rubySnake and I have completed 97 Work Units with 64,999 points earned. When completing a work unit and uploading the completed work, the estimated points (per the log) for the work unit is usually in the thousands, but awarded credits are a different story and much lower. My average is 670 credits per work unit.
Just joined Team Fosstodon on #foldingathome. I think I can contribute quite well to my new team.

I couldn't help myself. I wrote the author of the article an email.
The best way to drink a beverage is with the lid off. You've got to get your nose and face into the whole experience. It actually enhances the flavor of even a #starbucks coffee. Which, by the way is consistently mediocre. Once you've tried coffee in Colombia or parts of Asia, #starbucks becomes like the #mcdonalds of coffee. Ubiquitous, pricey, and kind of blah.
Thanks to your feedback on the poll below, I installed #linuxmint #cinnamon on my mom's former #windows7 desktop PC. It runs great and automatically discovered a #brother mfc-l2740dw printer connected to the same network. To enable scanner functionality, the #brother website had excellent drivers and documentation to install their software. Now the machine has the same functionality and is much faster on #linux than it was on #windows. A #samsung 860 EVO ssd made things better as well.
Out of stillness emerges wisdom.
