Um, Hello. So I was doom scrolling through a news feed and came across a question: "What is your favorite Linux distro and why"? Since I am a Linux user, and bored, I decided to respond. In the process I seem to have created a Dev user account. Um, So, here I am. I think I'll stick around and see if i can learn something.

Welcome! I love the term "doom scrolling" by the way. The first time I heard it, I felt that it quite accurately described not only what I was doing, but also how I felt.

Hello Gordon.

I believe that as a linux user, you never stop learning. And the best way to lear is to teach.

Xubuntu. Because it's what I use and it passed the Wife and Kids test. Probably not what you were expecting to hear.

Actually, if I had to pick a favorite it would be Ubuntu in some form or another, for the same usability factor. I rock Manjaro on my workstations but mainly for hardware compatibility.

Thanks for sharing!

What is good everyone.

I have been mostly lurking for the past few months. Due to COVID I have been at home with not a whole lot to do, so I have decided to start tackling the Daily Challenges posted here by Dev.TO and upload them to a Git repo. This is to motivate me to keep coding and tackling fun problems at the same time.

Daily Challenges Link
It isn't always daily per se, but a few a week at least. Almost 300 already so a nice backlog of challenges to keep you busy.

Glad to hear you're digging the challenges! πŸ˜€

Also, one trick about the Daily Challenges β€” you can type in dev.to/challenge and it'll take you to the latest one. Same goes for dev.to/welcome actually.

Fun fact about myself: my crowning achievement over my entire career remains that one time I converted a minifridge into a sous-vide cooker, and cooked steak in it. No other achievement has come close ever since.
