Favourite Distribution(s): Always Bodhi, but I’m getting to like ArcoLinux Mate. Gotta keep Mint around in case something needs to get done that I am having trouble with.
Favourite New Hardware (that you own): This has been a good hardware year for me. I have a new T540p laptop and a new ThinkCentre Tiny M700 desktop.
Favourite FOSS project in 2021: Ventoy
Favourite closed source project (if any): SoftMaker Office
Biggest disappointment: Bluetooth in Mint. My Bluetooth mouse seems to work better in almost any other distro.
FOSS projects that I have contributed to in 2021 (financial or otherwise): Bodhi Linux
Project/Product release that I am most looking forward to in 2022: Mint 21, Tenacity
Best News in 2021: Steam Box (still not released, but coming) I’m not a gamer, but getting more people in Linux is always a good thing.
Worst News in 2021: Audacity/MuseScore merger and multiple fauxs pas
Positive Prediction for 2022: Linux will reach 4% of desktop use.
Negative Prediction for 2022: Nobody will care.
Favourite Linux/FOSS Podcast: Distrohoppers’ Digest. But I’m prejudiced. Podcast I’m not on that I listen to the most: Late Night Linux
Favourite Linux/FOSS News Source: ItsFOSS.com, Jupiter Broadcasting, DLN
Ambitious goal for 2022: Survive another year. Sell my unused computers. Find a new place to live and move there.
