I'd like to buy a small cheap but good laptop to experiment with some GNU #Linux distros. Any suggestions?
I looked at lenovos but I'm not really sure about the models.
I like System76, Star Labs and especially Librem 14 but they are generally on the expensive side.
Pine64 looks interesting but it's way to cheap, honestly.
So basically I had to ditch completely the idea of installing a GNU #Linux distro on my laptop. Mostly because of UEFI and SecureBoot that can't be turned off. Not ideal.
NOPE. Too late for this. Brain not functioning properly. Better wait until tomorrow.
So after something like 10 years I'm trying to install a GNU #Linux distro again. Many things are much easier. Somethings are much different. Like UEFI and Secure Boot. WHY?
@Charims I've been an Arch user for a few years in the past. Then due to my design career and proprietary software I have to use daily I moved to Windows and Mac Os. The laptop is mine, I'm a freelancer. I'm just scared about messing it up badly and having to fix it before monday XD
This morning I woke up with this strong desire of installing Arch #Linux in dual boot on my work laptop that is running Win 10 with bitlocker encription active on both its hard drives.
Please stop me.
Hello everyone !

An awesome software is dying, because its #developper has not time anymore to care of it.
It's an alternative of Adobe AfterEffect : Natron (https://natrongithub.github.io/)
Please, can Mastodon community search for a C++ dev, which want to maintain it ? or search for a company which work with free software ? It's very important.
Boost very appreciated
Thanks in advance for your contribution !
I haven't talked about it recently, but I do have a lot of TV shows and films available via peertube:
This stuff is important to me, and I like sharing it with everyone.
I have some more stuff coming in the next few weeks too.
I'm seriously thinking about starting a Mastodon instance with a general interest in motion graphics, vfx, animation, etc. I've never been an admin anywhere, though. Any suggestions about it? Is it really hard to deal with people as a server admin? Any pit falls? Tips and tricks? Thanks!
