So I’m listening to the @ubuntupodcast and they were talking about advocating Linux on the desktop (great episode, highly recommended)

Anyway, that got me thinking - at what point would Ubuntu be considered a distro in its own right and no longer a fork of Debian?

Personally, I feel it surpassed the title of “fork” a long time ago, as they’re two completely different OSs.

What do you guys think? Is Ubuntu an OS in its own right, or will it always be a fork of Debian?

I have never seen a marketing video for a terminal before. I didn't expect Microsoft to be the first to do it, and do it so well..

After nearly a week, the @purism "Librem One" crowdfunder almost reaches 50%. I just noticed they have a "competitive chart" with Librem 5 up against HTC, OnePlus and Samsung flagships. Bold. I look forward to side by side comparisons at launch of the Librem 5!

Growth in backers to the @purism Librem One campaign between 30/04/19 and 03/05/19. From 154 to 1654 in under 4 days. No idea which level each person backed at, because ironically Purism aren't open with that data on the site.

Just finished watching Captain Marvel and Avengers Endgame back-to-back! I no longer need to avoid spoilers! Phew!

While @danrabbit Joe and @popey are at Linux Fest NorthWest, a new User Error show is out! This week, "abandonware", software packaging choices, why hardware support on Linux is terrible, objectivity and the big blue room. Listen now!

Every so often I want to take some notes, and make them public. Not blog posts, but technical notes. Not private things, but something others might find handy. Almost like a personal single-user wiki. Anyone done this? Something simple, secure and self hosted, so not github gists

First day back after Easter break. Computer decides one of my 1080p screens only runs at 1024x768 today. WTF?! Why!? (yes, I have rebooted)

This Technology Connections video speaks to my love of old, reliable toasters.
