The fight for freedom of speech online, and against laws leading to monopolization of the web is not over yet. There's still hope, if we fight! https://dontwreckthe.net/
I read the blog post on why some Gnome devs want to turn off themes.
Before reading it I hated the idea, and couldn't understand why they would do that.
After reading it I understand why. I see their points. But I still hate it. I can't guarantee that it is the right thing to spend limited resources on, but really, how can we turn our backs on this amazing creativity and beauty? I think this is important.
I have an amazing friend who's spent years making a totally mind blowing Harry Potter inspired board game. And now she's translated it to english and made her very first website, just to give it away for free!

I just installed the latest Deepin Linux, and that process was smooth! I wish all distros would care this much about beauty and ease of use! Looking forward to trying it out. Wonder if it actually has a smaller memory footprint than Ubuntu?
But I also wish they cared a bit more about correct English, though :P
Zorin OS seems like an interesting distro for people who don't really care about PCs (most people). https://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2018/08/zorin-os-12-4-download
Too bad I didn't think of that before delivering 10 older PCs to Refugees Welcome today. They where going to be trashed, I installed Ubuntu on them and hopefully gave them a new life.
What should we call them?
