Out of the Blue

Happy Cyber Monday, I guess. It was widely reported that most of this year's Black Friday sales were done online, anyway, it will be interesting to see whether these events end up converging over the coming years. Anyway, here's hoping no one gets trampled by crowds of shoppers today while hunting for bargains on the Internet.

Obituary: 'Will & Grace' actress Shelley Morrison dead at 83, remembered by co-stars.

Cyber Links: Thanks Ant.

Media: NO TIME TO DIE Teaser.

Hey BoP, what is your spin on their PoP!_OS?

I'm going to be honest. I hate Ubuntu with a passion.

Because it tries too hard to be something (Windows 10) that it's not (Linux).

No, I don't care about how they have chosen to arrange the Desktop Environment. Unlike Windows, you can change and modify that entire thing as you see fit.

What I do not like is how Ubuntu lays out the system underneath. It doesn't make any reasonable sense at all. Moreover, I do not like how Canonical does updates and the lack of available packages compared to Manjaro or Fedora with RPM fusion enabled. I also dislike to get that same breadth of choice, you have to add a bunch of PPAs separately.

I wiped Pop_OS! off my new laptop and installed Manjaro which is working with all the functionality of the distro that shipped with it.
