Tired of installing debloated copy of Windoze, installing freaking wifi drivers using USB hotspot and setting up antivirus, so it doesn't detect KMS as virus and truckload of other bullshit, I finally installed Linux Mint on few of the relatives' laptops as they only needed a file manager, browser and office.
After months, 2 out of 3 guys are actually happy with it. Third one just doesn't use laptop as much. Less work for me. :)

.@Windows 11: "Simple by default. Powerful by choice."
Huh. That sounds kinda familiar, doesn't it?
KDE: "Simple by default. Powerful when needed."
A motto @kdecommunity has had for at least ... 7 years?
Shame on you @microsoft.
@jrballesteros05 well. LibreWolf is very privacy focused so it's understandable. I use vanilla Firefox.
The thing about Skype is that it does not even start on Firefox so.. no choice.
@jrballesteros05 I do use web version of Skype but it only works on chromium based browsers and screen sharing doesnt work on them sometimes. It very unreliable and causes embarrassment which is why I wanted to switch back to i3.
Thankfully zoom in Firefox works very well and I can use that instead.
@arghyadeep True. Here it's an startup with little organization and availability issues due to timezones.
