>>Hard warm and functioning correctly = dirty sheets. 

Funny and I get your point, but Linux has "garbage collection" so it cleans your sheets too. :)

I'm an openSUSE user (age 65).   

 

Have openSUSE on 3 old PCs here in Europe (2 desktop's and 1 laptop). Laptop is Toshiba Satellite Z930. Desktops both custom: one with a core i7-4770 on a Gigabyte Z87X-DH3 motherboard and the oldest a very old core-i7-920 on an ASUSTek P6T Deluxe V2 motherboard. 

 

I plan to retire in Phuket in May this year (as my wife and I have already purchased a condo), and bring my laptop and Gigabyte motherboard based desktop with me, discarding the very old ASUSTek PC.

 

My first introduction to GNU/Linux was in Phuket in 1998 when while living in Phuket (on sabbatical for a couple of years) I installed Red Hat GNU/Linux for the first time on an ancient Compaq LTE5200 laptop.  I have not looked back since and still happy with GNU/Linux.    

 

I hope to drop in on this forum thread a bit more often after May this year.

Good to see that paranoia still rules OK....

Don't forget to tape over your laptop's camera and microphone too.

I actually know someone who does re the camera.

After reading Mr Snowdens revelations, I might do too nowadays...

 

All the dirt and hacking stuff I have is behind several firewalls and NAT, so I'm not very worried about that. Some is encrypted too, but if NSA can de-crypt SSL in real time, that is worrisome. But if you can turn on a webcam remotely without turning on the little LED... that's scary.

A confirmation that I'm not the only one. :biggrin:

Using a 'blind-plug' in the headphone jack is also a good idea.

Manjaro Linux Cinnamon. A nice and simple distro, except for all the updates. I run it from a SanDisk Ultra Fit USB flash drive on my Windows 7 desktop computer.

Has anybody here used Zorin OS? StarLabs (UK) are offering it as an option with their hardware.

I use Debian, with a rather minimalist window manager, because I use Debian for decades for my job on web servers and don't see the point to change for another distrib on my own computer.

I think that a good idea.  I do not believe being a 'distro hopper' is productive.   As a distro hopper one does get to see different ways of doing things only in a very superficial way (IMHO).  I've read countless posts of distro hopper who complain about function 'x' in a distro, where if they had only spent a small time more in that same distro they would have learned that distro has function 'y' which means function 'x' not needed or easily worked around, but they never learn.  I think sticking with what one knows as much as possible (whether it be Mac, Windows, or a specific GNU/Linux distribution) is the way to go.

Used Debian for more than a decade. Moved to Devuan almost a year ago (Devuan = Debian without systemd). Never looked back!!
