people appropriately shit the chans and reddit and nextdoor and facebook and all online social hubs that have specific flaws and eccentricities. but you know what is quietly out there being Weird As Hell and nobody really thinks about it?
the people asking and answering shit on Quora are baffling.

BTW, for the terminally curious (pun intended), it *is* technically possible to migrate from Ubuntu 20.04 to Debian 11.3 in place without a re-install... *if* you are experienced with apt/dpkg, are willing to manually rm certain files under /var/lib/dpkg/info when the situation calls for it, and uninstall/reinstall certain programs by hand. It is not something I can recommend trying in good conscience, but if you must, make backups and be ready to abandon ship back to the old Ubuntu install!
Please boost for reach. So, anyone that is working on FOSS projects like web apps, sites, Linux apps, desktop environments, or other user interfaces, please let me know if you want them tested for accessibility. I can do both CLI, web, and GUI testing, and app testing on Android. I'm running Debian (on a ChromeBook but that's not too important), so just give me the name of the package, or the URL of the site or app. I can also do Flatpak!
My favorite O Brother, Where Are Thou? trivia is that George Clooney had his Kentuckian dad record all his lines so that Clooney could listen to and memorize them with the proper accent.
