If I want to learn more about Linux/UNIX OSes, what distribution should I take a look at?

The never ending story about which to use when you are a privacy oriented person.
People shouldn't forget about the power relation between Google and Mozilla when critizing.

When people argue that Google searches have "better results" and therefore don't understand current situation with the american government. Do people not realize that exactly this is the problem? Google is better because it dominated the market for search engines for years and uses its power to shift competitors out of the market (Android default search engine).

The central complaint against Google in the DOJ suit is about their search engine dominance and how hard it is to switch. Which makes it a good moment to repost this: wired.com/story/i-ditched-goog

When did I start using #Linux ?

Since the first day I met a terminal, I was conquered. I loved everything about the #opensource ecosystem, the philosophy and every little thing in the community.

What is your way of sharing links or little notes across devices (company/private)? Just sending myself an email everytime sounds tiresome.

You know how you can tell a blog article about OpenBSD is good?

1) They explain *why* you do things. At a minimum, they say they don't know why. If they just tell you to put in unexplained commands and lines? That person is bad and you should find an adult.

2) They give a date on the article and maybe a version of OpenBSD. OpenBSD changes a bunch. Old advice may still be good, but you need to know it may not be.

3) They point you at official documentation from the article.

"So etwas freut mich: Mein Vater (79) verwendet jetzt LibreOffice statt Microsoft-Office.

Auslöser für den Umstieg war, dass die bisher von ihm verwendete Desktop-Version von Microsoft-Office (2010?) keinen Support mehr hat und Microsoft die Nutzer dazu drängt, ein Office-365-Abonnement abzuschließen. Dazu hatte mein Vater dann doch keine Lust und spendet jetzt lieber an die Document Foundation."

Der Umstieg ist möglich - egal welches Alter.

Es ist mal wieder Zeit für einen Strauß an Sicherheitslücken in Anti-Viren-Software. Diese soll ja eigentlich das System bzw. den Anwender schützen - stattdessen erhöht sie die Angriffsfläche. *Heureka*

So I didnt spend too much time with checking what can be configured, but from the get go, I feel more pleased with . The default UI just sits right with me. The help page displays properly understandable commands. help view is kind of confusing.

But I will keep testing, also need to check out if its possible to view album art with any of those three players.

It is the best way to manage passwords in my opinion. Because my data only belongs to me, with no cloud and no middle man. And I am the only person I trust with my critical data.

A powerful password manager indeed: itsfoss.com/keepassxc/

So far I am amazed by both programs. Configuring is super easy and I like the default view, although I am not sure how I like filtering through all my folders to decide for music...this comparison will take some time until I can come to any conclusion.
