I love Linux. Is there anything in particular you want to know/discuss?

All my computers now run Linux (2 x PC laptops, 1 x MacBook, 1 x Raspberry Pi 4), although one of them dual boots with Windows 7 for the few things I can't do with Linux, where the Windows program won't run in WINE. The only game I play is Solitaire, that I spend far too much time doing, but I need the distraction.

Acer R11 Chromebook... Ubuntu with Crouton.
I got it originally for a trip.. smaller and lighter than my other laptops.

I've also tried the Windows/Linux and Apple/Linux thing previously.
I've even looked at going the Unix thing just for fun.

Was curious to see if fellow HFA & Aspergians use it. I love it.

Which Linux distribution do you use? Are you a 'distro hopper'?

Lately I've become a Red Hat/Fedora guy, but I used to hop between Ubuntu and Arch Linux. I recently started using Fedora Silverblue, which is a specialized version of Fedora that uses ostree, rpm-ostree, Flatpak, and container technology. It can be thought of as "Git at the OS level", and has increased modularity and cohesion.

Mostly Debian based distros. I used to have a triple boot when I was hopping. Zorin was okay but there were bugs in it a few yrs ago in which one mistake could break the system (unnecessary bloat dependencies). After re-installing about 10 times I left Zorin alone. Qubes? Whonix next? I tried Fedora but it wasn't for me although it's pretty cool.

Yes, I'm a full time Linux user. I also played Runescape when I was younger.
