Re: Old computer, new life (I hope)

Re: Two things missing from every Linux distro's

A few "glass half full" comments, it seems. It seems pretty simple to me: some one who had one computer class back in high school - about 40 years ago - and learned how to work with Linux on his own.

Re: MX-18 Feedback

Re: Ikkey leaves Solus

Not sure if he's "left" Solus. He was sick for a period of time, and then the Solus team lost touch with him. Hope he's OK.
