A mature fellow, with a hankering for control over my own computing.
I've admired Linux over the years & have moved my main box over.
Desktop: MX Linux 18
Laptop: MX Linux 18
Old Laptop: Bodhi 5
Previously bewitched by OpenSUSE, Peppermint, Porteus, Lubuntu, Linux Lite.
Simplicity, Choice, Freedom and Control - along with Ethical, Sustainable computing all figure into my love for Linux.
#gaming is in my blood
I enjoy playful flirtations with my imagination, inspired by gaming. The emotional adventures that can be had.
I enthuse, I write, I podcast, and champion the niche in almost all forms of entertainment.
I prefer communities that support consideration & mutual respect, maturity & passionate discussion.

A one on one discussion about what's happening and how can we rethink it and campaign for change. I enjoy Tristan's clarity about how our attention is finite and currently the resource big tech is competing for.
