I've been reading reviews on The guy nailed some user related issues quite well:

1. Regular user doesn't want to fiddle with geeky stuff.
2. OS that aims to be used by a regular user has to work out of the box.
3. Libre office has to be 100% capable of opening any kind of shit made on MS Word.
4. Currently there is no Linux distro that could satisfy a regular user.
5. You should change software (OS) and hardware at the same time.
6. There are too many Linux distros.

A lot of people comparing distros and desktops.
Is there a benchmarking tool for this?

Went live this morning with a new website for the Mrs as she desperately searches for any source of income in the midst of covid.

Launching a paid product to the public, even this low key, is a stress I'd like not to repeat to be honest.

Product founders have my respect.

I feel completely stupid. Tried to use Docker to install (run) an app on my linux machine. I failed. The story should've had a happy ending with localhost:8080/libreplan leading me to libreplan screen. It didn't happen. Is there a nice tutorial about using docker to run apps? It has to be very simple. Something like Docker for Dummies but dumber. Way dumber.

Need help with Tiny Tiny RSS Android app.
When I swipe down to refresh feeds, nothing refreshes. I have to tap on each and every one and swipe down to get the new stuff. I can then swipe down on the feed list and the number of new articles appears next to the feed name.
Is there a way to automatically refresh all the feeds?
