“You can get all your stuff done. …and honestly if you’ve got an old Windows machine that you don’t want to have to run Windows on, put elementary OS on it and it becomes a nice little workhorse.”
“Say you’ve got an older Mac that’s no longer getting security updates from Apple but you still want to use it, elementary OS is going to be a very familiar interface to you… It looks great, it’s stable, it’s updated regularly, and will run on many, many, many Macs.”
The Mac Observer’s Mac Geek Gab podcast has some good things to say about elementary OS! https://pca.st/s179kbf3#t=4671

"We’re very happy with @plausible. They’ve enabled us to get rid of Google Analytics while still keeping tabs on important product-related data. And most importantly, we are able to do so in a way that is much more transparent and trustworthy"
Thank you to the @elementary team for all their support!
