@kelbot I feel the same. Certainly some new habits have been formed as a result of these times, and more yet to be formed.
Even though I doubt we will maintain this level of self sufficiency on the other side of all this (if we ever get there) I think a lot of us will come out of it with new habits and skills that we hadn't explored up to this point. I know I will. With cooking I am baking bread, trying lots of new recipes and even improvising. Not something I was doing or even interested in doing before.
@EthicalTanuki This is actually so real, and a problem I see so often with schools, just in general. They seem to have no good idea about software, and just take whatever proprietary software they can see, even when there are better, cheaper/free, open source alternatives, without even thinking if students can access them.
At my school, very few people even know what Linux is, for example. Only a handful of people in the CS department, and the technicians of course, but nobody respects them :/
Setting up my daughter’s laptop after having removed Win10 and trying out a few distros. Landed on #Pop_os which I think she’s going to like.
@gxtony True. I guess I should have mentioned that I power down every night anyway. I only run it when I know we're going to be using it in our house
@gxtony No joke. It's been pretty reliable I have to say
@codeHaiku I was surprised when I'd read this. It's too bad as my daughter is getting a laptop soon and I wanted to put an Arch based OS on there, like Manjaro. I may try Endeavour OS instead.
