The Framework (repairable, upgradable) laptop getting a 10/10 repairability score from iFixit is a great endorsement for the team who worked on the product.

I bought a 1st generation ipad in 2010. It's almost completely unusable as anything other than a clock. Can't sell it because I stupidly got it engraved with my name and phone number 🀦. Can't sign into games, lots of things won't install or update. Netflix still works tho 🀷

Help! I'm looking for someone with an Apple computer to verify that upgrades from groovy to hirsute now work with the new ubuntu-release-upgrader in hirsute-proposed:

Don't miss Jonathan Riddell talking about KDE on's FLOSS Weekly show. This afternoon at 16:30 UTC.
