So my poetry is/has been lacking of course.
Work has been... a bear for 3 years. It has finally started picking up and I am actually feeling good about it again.
At home I grew tired of Windows and Mac OS again... so I went back to linux. I can do 90% of what I want to do with Linux, and 100% of what I NEED to do. The only things that lack is my huge STEAM game library. Not so many games work on linux... but I CAN PLAY MY FAVORITES.
Star Stable Online, Diablo 3, and a number of other games (like Borderlands and such) work on linux/steam. I can also create videos for Youtube and stuff like that...
But for the things I NEED to do, write documents, spreadsheets, presentations, coding, etc. All of that is covered in spades (generally more and better options than Windows or Mac OS) with Linux-based OS's.
So currently I am running a gorgeous, efficient and somewhat scary linux OS called Solus. It started as a hobby OS for someone, grew into something much more special. Solus is not sourced from other linux distributions. It is put together with love from a small team. It has running updates which are good and bad. Also since the team is small and they are trying to achieve their own goals with the OS, it can change somewhat drastically from time to time. For example the homegrown UI called Budgie (like Cinnamon or Mate) is written to be Gnome-compatible on the GTK3+ library. However the lead developer / project owner has stated that he is starting to rewrite it, this time using Qt+ libraries! Honestly I cannot wait... looking forward to seeing how the OS morphs over time.
It has been pretty stable so far except where I go app-crazy and start installing all sorts of libraries and such. I've managed to break shotcut which is my tool of choice for creating videos. So until I get that squared away I will have to fudge around to create decent videos for my youtube channel.
Anyway, God bless you all and I pray you are all making your way through this crazy world in tact.
