@sikkdays Discovering @elementary has been a revelatory experience for me. I'm partially blind and fine/gross motor impaired, so WIMPS interfaces are a total productivity killer for me. This platform uses a different philosophy entirely, and that really shines through when using it. Keyboard driven EVERYTHING, and for those who want a visual interface it offers a consistent user experience that's really beautiful. Can't gush about the work these folks are doing enough. Don't treat it like just another Linux distro though or you may be disappointed when you can't twiddle every last bit.

I'm experimenting with using instead of Google Analytics, after the @elementary team spoke highly of it. The interface is a lot simpler than GA, and the ability to make the stats public is great.

Here's the stats for my personal site:

Also, did you know when you embed a tweet, it lets Twitter track your readers across your site, contributing to a similar data collection network? That’s why our “embedded” tweets are all local HTML without hitting Twitter’s servers. As a bonus, it respects dark style.

We've completely left Google Analytics behind in favor of @plausible.

Google’s incentive is to collect as much information as possible from people visiting as many sites as possible—and using Google Analytics directly helps them do that.

elementary OS often gets called a “Linux distribution.” We see it a bit differently.
