@dajbelshaw I enjoyed your 100 days to offload posts and come back to some from time to time. Even though I found them a little late 🙂. Looking forward to more even without the challenge.

@dajbelshaw well done, Doug! I just added you to the hall of fame on the 100 Days website - 100daystooffload.com/

@dajbelshaw Many congratulations on a big milestone achieved!

Out of interest, to which version of Linux did you end up switching?

@dajbelshaw Nice!

After 7 years of gallant service, my Dell XPS has finally given up the ghost. I’ve been on Pop!_OS for some of that time and while I await my next laptop am trying Fedora.

Still uncertain if either of those two, or maybe an Arch core with Endeavour or Manjaro, will carry my workflow for the next phase of my digital adventures.

@robert I have to admit to running ChromiumOS on my ThinkPad x220 (currently selling my x270 because it's not as good!)

Oh, and I've also got a Pixelbook. What can I say? ChromeOS is the easiest to use version of Linux...

@dajbelshaw Haha! You do seem to love Chrome.

And yes, I have heard excellent things about its ease of use. But, as I am trying to completely move to Linux in part because I am not only De-Windowing my life, but also De-Googling it, not sure ChromeOS is the best step for that. 😂

Successfully using chromebook with gnu/linux debian, xfce (courtesy of crouton which has now been superseded by crostini>. Ironically, consideration of the success of micro$oft to lock vendors' bios with uefi, chromebooks are the best, cheapest hardware to use gnu/linux. Since google uses gentoo, it's "full circle"

Congrats on completing @dajbelshaw scanning your list i couldn't find any posts on "worked a lot with charities on digital projects and transformation" could you link/tell more?

@dajbelshaw thanks. thecatalyst.org.uk looks super cool. Do you know if they have international projects or there are similar organizations for Europe/Germany?

@ampelmann It was set up originally with UK National Lottery funding, so doubt it...
