Thinking about putting together a remote-terminal-only laptop. For going hog-wild with Byobu/Tmux on some of my remote boxes via SSH & Tor.
I'm guessing that a Chromebook-class device is the best fit there; even the official software builds include a terminal app. So long as long as there's not weird restrictions down in there somewhere about storing keys and whatnot.
Maybe there's other gotchas, though? Like needing browser stuff for network config? Anybody been down this road already?
So ... are you happy with this state of affairs? Do you think that not having a tracking-free device is the just punishment for you lack of knowledge?
I don't blame the LOS-people, but the future of privacy is dark if only a chosen few are able to defend it and the rest just shrug their shoulders.

It has every line of dialogue spoken on STTNG tied to screencaptures. Which makes it good for looking up lines as well.

The most interesting forms are in the Gotico Antiquas, but that's kind of a given compared to something as well-trodden as Baskerville.

tl;dr: GNOME apps are going to look so dope in a few months, it's kind of ridiculous :P

When you buy a pot of basil, you are not buying one plant, but a tightly sown clump of more than 20 seedlings.
This gives the appearance of an extremely healthy, bushy plant, which looks great on the shelf. But the reality is that these seedlings soon start to compete with each other for space, causing the plants in the clump to succumb to lack nutrients.
To fix this, take the clump of plants and divide the root ball into quarters by gently tearing it apart with your fingers.
