You know, @elementary are doing everything right (their focus on privacy, having control of the desktop environment, the potential for creating a sustainable app ecosystem, etc.) and I consider it a personal failing that I haven’t given it more of a chance personally.
Going to remedy that soon… maybe I’ll start by playing with their upcoming 6.0 release on my PineBook Pro :)
I just ordered a Star LapTop Mk IV with elementary OS pre-installed to use as my daily driver going forward. I also started a small monthly sponsorship on behalf of Small Technology Foundation and look forward to playing with it on the PineBook too and helping out where I can :)
