One of my coworkersmay be converted to a Linux user. He normally uses a Macbook so I installed @elementary on a spare computer for him to use. After seeing how nice the experience was and all the tools Linux has to offer for a few months, he just told me he's ditching Adobe and thinking about selling his Macbook to buy a System76 laptop.
Spent the weekend playing Evoland Legendary Edition. It includes both Evoland games. The first one is just as funny as I remember from my first play through years ago. So happy to finally be able to play the sequel on Linux. Thus far It's been very enjoyable and it surprisingly has an original story vs the bare bones parody of a story the first game had.
Finally got around to beating Iconoclasts. Solid game with nice graphics. It only really frustrated me a few times by not being clear what I was supposed to do or where I was supposed to go. Some of those instances were "my fault" for not noticing the subtle hints the game was giving me in a timely manner. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who likes platformers with just the slightest hint of metroidvania.
I really like the goals / idea behind the badge system for the PureOS App Store (https://puri.sm/posts/purism-announces-pureos-store/).
Now if that can be combined with the "pay what you want" of the ElementaryOS App Store, I feel like that would be a really great combo.
One of the Engineers at the company I work for, can't do his job because of a license error with Fusion360. After hours tech support with the software vendor, they couldn't use Teamviewer to connect to his computer, because they had a license issue with Teamviewer. Ah the joys of proprietary software and DRM.
Jill of the Jungle is currently free on GOG
@danrabbit Reading the update blog for the Juno update, Code sounds absolutely amazing after all that work. Congrats to the ElementaryOS team on a great sounding release! I'll have to take another look at it in the near future.
@kde I decided to check out the Kontact software suite because the recent Thunderbird update broke all my calendars. It looks like a nice piece of software, however I find the GUI very unintuitive and a mess to navigate. It also did not play well with the Gnome environment on POP!_OS. There may very well be a bunch of options to configure it exactly to my liking but it's very overwhelming. That being said Kmail was the only email client other than Thunderbird that could handle 2FA on a gmail.
