@juliank Yeah, I have been tempted by those keyboards before. But missing the 3rd button kills it.

One reason I prefer the ThinkPad TrackPoint over a trackpad is scrolling. Turns out not everyone knows you can hold the middle mouse button and use TrackPoint to smoothly & precisely scroll in 4 directions. Keeps hands on the keys too. ❤️ 💻

Ugh. I just said "outcomes and learnings" out loud. Now I feel dirty. I'm so, so sorry.

@jordan31 @DistroJunkie @Wimpy @marxjohnson Don't get me wrong, some distros need to exist, but they don't necessarily need to be installed :)

@DistroJunkie @Wimpy @marxjohnson Also, some would argue Ubuntu shouldn't exist, and I have seen that said online. Yet Ubuntu is a gateway for many people - sure they may move on to other distros, but Ubuntu has more users than most other distros put together. If it didn't exist, what happens to those millions of users?

@DistroJunkie @Wimpy @marxjohnson "Actually" Hannah Montana Linux absolutely needed to exist as a test area for Wayland. It might not be so needed now, but it certainly was needed at the time.

I think I like Magic Wormhole a little too much. It's so useful for whizzing files or entire folders around. It's handy as you don't have to punch holes in firewalls or deal with NAT. snapcraft.io/wormhole

Finished first day of working in Montreal, preparing for another @snapcraftio Summit. We have invited ~40 guests to work together on making Linux application delivery better. We also have IoT and robotics experts coming too. Going to be a busy week ahead.
