Since I couldn't fill it all out on my Bio, here it is...
I'm a computer geek with a musical flare. I have a love for technology old and new, a love for music, and most importantly, a love for my wonderful family.
I was the co-host of a podcast called Linux Basement which is no more. You can find old episodes on The Internet Archive.
You can also find my contributed episodes on Hacker Public Radio under my name or my handle, ClaudioM. http://hackerpublicradio.org
Builder now has additional releases for i386, arm, and aarch64 on Flathub, in case you're lucky enough to be using one of those architectures.
Flicker free boot and the new Gnome version are going to be Fedora 29's highlights 🙂

While on distro-talk: I set my mom up with #UbuntuMate, dual booting on her Macbook, and she loves it, and uses it for most of her computing. She says the interface runs well and was easy to navigate and figure out. That says great things about Ubuntu Mate, and I'm proud of her for going for it, even though she's not a techie.
I detect a slight problem with Kickstarter. From a consumer perspective, I feel like my $50 as a #Linux #gamer for Bards Tale IV is as good as anybody else's $50. But I don't I get the game on release day?
I get it. They test and release for Win, and then the others. But still, the result is that my donation feels less worthy than a Windows user's donation.
Maybe setting expectations early would be worth while? Or make sure your non-Win *beta* gets released the same day as Win release?
