What are some older laptops that have nice form factors that might be cheaper now and fun to mess with?
I gave away my Linux machine to a friend and I'm not willing to mess with my windows laptop until I'm out of college.
Thanks in advance!

@kev I strongly disagree that the algorithm for duckduckgo is bad. It's just not google's and when you've used it for more than a decade its really hard to switch to another one.
It takes more than a month to train yourself to use duckduckgo.
DuckDuckGo is switching to use Apple Maps instead of #OpenStreetMap with Mapbox. I'm ready to leave ddg now, but don't know where to turn yet.
Come to think of it, I normally went to openstreetmap.org to use maps anyway but this still makes me sad.
Yay. 🙃 (satire, this doesn't make me happy)

I really want to like #LibreCAD and #FreeCAD but I'm so accustomed to AutoCAD, SolidWorks, Inventor, and Fusion 360. I wish they were more similar. After learning Inventor, SolidWorks was a breeze. Unfortunately FreeCAD does not follow this rule and neither does LibreCAD and I don't have the time to learn new (unfortunately workplace irrelevant) software. 😥
I'd even settle for Linux ports so I wouldn't have to boot windows
Distro addicted college student who would rather research FOSS than do homework.
Not a CS major. If it's any hint, I like #FreeCAD
