    Merry Christmas

    Using Linux a lot out in the world think we are violators anyway, might as well have fun with it. A few times at Microcenter in the past, I mention Linux and get ??? like do you program/hack/is it hard, most of the youngers are Win games based. Just got done building even another PC, mostly...

    Merry Christmas

    Oh the world outside is frightful, But inside the case its delightful, There are Windows in a lot you see, But Linux is always free. The new version of evil may become, A subscription for a "measly" sum So your data is not your own, Let more Linux seeds be sown. The M can't get eleven spread...

    It is best to be kind and have patience with the person who, like Windows, has crashes and glitches in the moments, be gentle and give them a Penguin to play with.

    After all the goodbyes in your post, what Distro do you use? As I said I go thru a few all the time, as for backing up I set up all systems tweak and fix the W's then do a recovery stick. Timeshift on Penguins. As for data I have been building systems so long I have the stuff I want to save...

    I have found Mint to be my familiar distro. I have kind of settled on MX Linux as my daily. Have it running on an older laptop at the shop, Dual core Intel with 2GB of DDR2 mem and not upgradable to even 4. Even on that MX runs and the other guys, one who does not like computers uses it just...

    Voyager Linux

    Added Voyager to the Dell Inspirion Touchscreen laptop alongside MX it does all the work on install, touch screen works well also. I am liking Voyager. Also just installed it on an old desktop with 16 gigs of DDR3 ram, it worked just fine on that one. Gonna give that one to my older niece.

    R Pi 5 is here.

    Should be easier to make and they amped it up to be able to stock, they say. The Chips, all the plugs the GPIO pins all are top surface soldered instead of top and bottom, meaning does not need to be flipped over and back on line. Not sure, yet.

    Voyager Linux

    Well my testing laptop now triple boots. MX19 (Arch), MX21 (Debian) and now Voyager 23 (Ubuntu) It installed alongside the others very easy, lots to look through. Updates, customizes very easy also. Gonna play around with it some more. MX has become my fav. Simple and easy to maintain.

    Added 4gb more ram, replaced the 1TB HDD with a 240GB SSD, don't need all the space for what I do with it. Now have 1TB of another drive to store crap on. Put it on my back desk where my laptop lived for bill paying. All that laptop was for, the only problem was and older HP kept MX updated pay...

    Well bad news, opened it up last evening, it actually has a 3.5in HDD. It is also the cage structure for the VESA mount. It has an empty slot for another stick of ram and I will switch the HDD with an SSD. Then just use the HDD at my desk for storage as I have an SSD desktop cradle I just plug...
