In my last blog post I mentioned that I was done distro-hopping. Well, as you can see from the title of this post, I lied. I must confess I really wanted my distro-hopping days to be done. However, as a self proclaimed audio enthusiast, I need my OS to work with my external DAC and amplifier. After numerous attempts, GhostBSD would still not recognize my audio gear. So, it had to go. And in its place? Well, let's take a look at that now.
Linux Lounge is a British YouTube channel that focuses on Linux distributions and open source software. Surpassing 1,000 subscribers in July of 2020, the channel boasts large community engagement and quality content. As one of my favorite content creators on LBRY/YouTube I was very happy to have them stop by for a short interview, thank you Linux Lounge.
I love retro gaming, and I have for a long time. I've never been one who could invest any amount of time into a Xbox 360 or PS4 game, but a game on my Sega Dreamcast or my Sega Genesis? Those I could pour hours into! One thing I love about the retro gaming scene is when new games come out for these old systems. It's really interesting to see what a new creator can do with these ancient pieces of tech. That's exactly the case here with Tobu Tobu Girl Deluxe for the original Gameboy, and I love it!
It's been about a week since my last post, and I do apologize for the delay. I just started a new job recently and with that comes a change in life style (I need to wake up early now). While the pandemic rages on I'll be working a 9 to 5 job at home using the greatest OS known to man, Windows 10 (...sorry, I threw up a little bit in my mouth there).

On August sixth I received an email from RISC OS Cloverleaf's mailing list detailing their plans to release a demo outlining the work they've done for RISC OS. I was quite excited to see it. What I ended up suffering through though, was far below expectations.
Last month, I did a post titled Why You Should Keep Your Eyes on RISC OS Going Into 2021, which you can read here. It ended up being our most popular post to date. In that post I mentioned that there are some projects in the work that promise to bring the OS kicking and screaming in to the modern era. One of those projects is one I’m really excited for. It’s RISC OS Cloverleaf, and they've got some pretty ambitious goals in mind for the future of RISC OS Open.
I feel no shame in admitting that I’m a huge Chrome OS fan. So much so in fact, I was subscribed to websites like Chrome Unboxed and others just like it. As a minimalist, Chrome OS met my needs beautifully. Web based applications with just enough features to make the experience effortless for my productivity needs. The only issue with it, was Google.
When it comes to the digital frontier, applications are what we use to get work done. From mobile to desktop, they are a part of our everyday lives. Because of this factor, the need for good applications is paramount.
While the pandemic rages on, more people are starting to work from home. While great for some, it’s worse for others. Individuals are finding that they don't have a computer to get their work done. Not to worry, if you’re like many readers on librefree.me, you're probably looking for something running Linux. You’re in luck as there are plenty options out there, let’s look at a few.
