Some output from training a Markov bot on a combination of Soulsborne text and Linux kernel documentation:
"Fear the old driver" - wise words indeed.

#Lagrange is now available on Flathub.
Flatpak apps are sandboxed so it stores user files in a different place than a regular build. Otherwise works pretty much the same.
I love LVM on #Linux ! I'm converting my server from "LVM on mdadm" into bare LVM without shutting down nor even stopping any services.
So during this holiday break I installed Linux on two laptops (one new and second ~10 years old). Every piece of hardware was working out of the box, or with drivers available in repo. Everything needed was available for Linux: Firefox, LibreOffice, PDF reader, photo viewer, VLC media player, etc. Even proprietary stuff like dropbox, skype or zoom (I know these are bad, but I can't change the whole world at once).
I think the "year of Linux desktop" is here. Or at least Linux is ready for it. 3/3
After completing transition I took the old one and wanted to clean it up, before it was given to someone else. It had a win7 license key on a sticker, but was OEM, so I couldn't use it to get fresh win7 install iso. I told my wife's family that I can wipe the disk, leave it empty, or install Linux. They agreed to installing Linux. 2/3
My wife's grandparent bought himself a new laptop. The old one had win7 and it was taking few good minutes to boot up. I was asked to prepare the new one and move his stuff. But instead of setting up win10, that was on the new one, I installed #openSUSE #Linux with #KDE as additional boot option and asked him to try it. He was happy with it. Win10 interface is enough different than win7, that KDE was easier for him to learn. Next I wiped whole disk and reinstalled Linux, getting rid of win10 completely. 1/3
