Hey everyone,

Just joined after being quite curious about it. Haven't used any social media since a good 5+ years.

I'm a Linux user/hobbyist since around 2016 and switched the vast majority of my applications on desktop and Android to FOSS ones. Apart from my video card driver, because Nvidia :oh_no: I also just degoogled my phone last month and switched to LineageOS with MicroG. Very happy with it so far!

Anyway, I'm looking forward to join interesting discussions.

@marvka Welcome to Fosstodon. Things are slow at first but as you find people with similar interests and follow them, others will follow you. Create your bio, add an avatar pic and some emojis to your name so others can learn more about you. If you haven't, sending out an introduction listing your interests will help.

The custom emoji list is here:

Good luck and have fun.


@Tay0 Thanks! That Emoji list in particular is useful, I've been wondering how people get those nifty icons next to their usernames 😁
