Going to be playing some Linux games over at twitch.tv/sirsamsai in 15 minutes! Tonight's menu: Barotrauma and DASH, which are followed by the continuation of our DUSK playthrough. See you in the chat!

@killyourfm Shame to hear you go from "Choose Linux"! I've really enjoyed to hear your journey into the open source world! I think it's so important to get new users's impressions as the rest of us are so used to how it's like :flan_smile: But it got me to know you're here, which is fantastic! More public figures promoting open source social media!

@killyourfm I occasionally do. Don't have a website for that although maybe this counts as a website?
All info is in the readme.

<BRAGGING>this track won 1st place on the One Synth Challenge</BRAGGING >

ftr (as described in the readme) one piece of proprietary software was used, OTT...
I since then learned how to get the same effect with opensource tools.


I sincerely want to do some benchmark comparisons between and on Windows, but I am going to feel so dirty installing it on my Oryx Pro.

@BigDaddyLinux @killyourfm Another thing to consider is the local timeline for every instance, which enhances the feeling of local and cosy communities.

Sure, it's all federated and all that, but on a Linux centric instanse you will see a lot of Linux-y statues from people without even following them.

It's a great way of discovering new fun people as well as just lurking around when bored.

So, does the instance matter? I personally think so. :)

Total Mastodon noob question: is there any benefit or drawback to seeing on a certain instance? When I signed up I was here on layer8.space, but now I'm seeing linuxrocks.online -- that is way more my speed :D

Anyone have any suggestions for people to follow who provide good #FOSS news but aren't overly shrill brogrammer types? Asking for a friend...

Are you a who uses and to create your songs? Know someone who is? I want to hear from you!

It's an awesome new episode of Choose Linux! We talk about the wonderful Zorin OS, and I take LineageOS for a quick test drive on my Nvidia Shield.

It's also a bittersweet episode, and we discuss why at the end of the show.

Installing and using Arch Linux is analogous to building with Lego. You start with an idea, build on top of a simple base and then create pretty much anything your imagination can conjure up. There is a learning curve to pay attention to, but thankfully the @ArchLinux_Community community has built a variety of tools to aid in the installation process. Here are two I've personally used that make the typical command-line based installation easier. forbes.com/sites/jasonevangelh
