My birthday is November 17th, so I thought it would be fun to do a "birthday special" AMA for Episode 17!

I answer a wide range of questions. The result is a stripped down format with some very candid thoughts about Linux, life, learning and love.

My search for a "forever distro" is over.

This is part article, part essay about my journey so far, and part genuinely surprising revelation

RT @m_wimpress: During my brunch 🍳🥓 with @brentgervais I simply ask that the wider #Linux 🐧 desktop communities be excellent to one another… tweeted by @ubuntu_mate

PSA: If you're on @System76
Pop OS 19.10 consider not installing this backported WiFi driver.

S76 says it's causing issues (which I can attest to) and are considering removing it.

If you've already installed and can't connect to wifi:

sudo apt purge backport-iwlwifi-dkms

"When I slapped Windows 10 on the Asus VivoBook E203M it was capable of multi-tasking, albeit with frequent “Not Responding” messages and the enthusiasm of a drunk snail. But when I installed distribution Peppermint OS, it just screamed."

Despite a number of new features brought to the table by 19.10, the headlining feature is this: it just feels really fast, even compared to Ubuntu 19.04. That comes down to dramatic improvements in 3.34, the desktop environment used on Ubuntu. And we finally have a wealth of information detailing exactly what those are.

The 19.10 upgrade season is officially upon us, and I’ve been dabbling with several of the freshly updated Ubuntu-based distributions this past week. One of those is Ubuntu MATE 19.10, which has a pair of minor but exceptional new features you might appreciate.

It's #Ubuntu 19.10 upgrade season and I've got the FEVER. Lots of impressions inside.

Also: Xfce may not be known as the "lightest on resources" desktop environment for long...

Plus much more in Linux For Everyone Episode 14. GET IT!
