When I realised I hadn't received any updates in a while - sudo pacman-mirrors -f && sudo pacman -Syu

I never knew a Chromebook could be so good. GalliumOS is basic but it allows me to install LibreOffice 7.0.4, Bitwarden, Standard Notes, GIMP, Brave Browser plus many other top applications.

After a lot of head scratching, I managed to get Gallium OS installing. Time for a bit of FOSS! 😁👍

Checking out Lubuntu on VM. Apparently it is lightweight. Going from the installer, I would say it is. 😂
