Totally not Solus related, just curious. How's Portland treating you +Ikey Doherty? Hopefully it won't be all work, you'll get a chance to get out and see some sights.

Didn't know you'd been there before Ikey. Well if you have the time and want to get out of the city for a while (and don't mind driving on the wrong side of the road) take a trip on I-84 along the Columbia towards Hood River, it's a very pretty drive. Or you can take U.S. 26 west out to Cannon Beach and soak your feet in the Pacific. Portland's a nice city, and it's surrounded by natural beauty. Enjoy!

Been playing a bit with themes in Awesome, kind of happy with this "Paper" based one. GTK Paper theme with Awesome made to match. Only glitch is the damn Dropbox icon...

Vivaldi browser, Termite terminals with the usual suspects. ;-)

I admit math isn't my strong point, but how does 1000 people equal "half of Americans" ? And where do the people surveyed live, Washington D.C.?
Reminds me of the T.V. show 'Family Feud', "We asked 1000 people what the term 'sheeple' means, and the survey says...! "
Apple may not have the public's support in its legal fight with the FBI, according to a recently published Pew report. In a survey that reached 1,000 respondents by phone over the weekend, Pew...

Very sad, and very true.
Two things I got way wrong, way back. One was Linux on the Desktop (LOTD). Around the turn of the Millennium, I predicted big successes for LOTD and Linux on the Laptop (LOTL)—and continued to do the same, annually, until I gave up.

Looks like Santa's elves are trying to keep up with technology. Either that, or Rudolph & Co. are having a really bad hair day.

"Remember, remember, the 5th of November..."

Definitely watching this again tonight. Given today's political climate and scaremongering, the movie's eerily prophetic.

Just noticed in the "About this community" bit it says "We are totally distro specific... Shouldn't that be "agnostic"?

Just curious.

Had some time, thought I'd play around with running a TWM under a DE. Chose MATE and i3-gaps, and I've got to say, not too shabby. Works pretty well. Won't replace my AwesomeWM setup, but still fun to experiment with.

If you downloaded Linux Mint 17 Cinnamon edition on Feb 20 (today), you'll want to read this.

Appreciate the re-share +Christopher Adam Lessley. I don't use Mint at all, but have a ton of respect for them. I think the Mint team did a stand-up job in finding it so fast, fixing it, and letting users know what to do. Kudos to Clem and the Mint team.
