IMHO Nextcloud should just include the download button next to the size column rather than displaying it in a dropdown box. This just feels like a waste of space.

Some nice tips/app picks on the recent Linux Unplugged podcast. I'm checking out profile-sync-daemon. Also on the list - video trimmer, firefox-adwaita-theme and also considering moving ~/bin to ~/.local/bin

Delta chat has videochat now. This is excellent. I like how they did it too. It just pulls up a webrtc videochat URL that you can choose and makes a random room name. On android I entered meet.jit.si and it pulls up the jitsi app when I start a chat.

Welcome to a long overdue episode 37! In this episode I share the personal story about my fight with Legionnaire's Disease. Plus, System76 Engineer Jeremy Soller is working on something groundbreaking, and AMD Ryzen fans are going to love it!

I also shine a spotlight on Star Labs -- they're doing something EVERY Linux PC company should be doing.

And finally, I close the show by telling you which distro I really miss...
