You don’t have to throw away your old PCs and laptops. Install a lightweight Linux distro on them and they’re as good as new.  Lightweight distros don’t even have to be used on old hardware. You can install them on some bleeding-edge hardware and get the ultimate performance. Most distros are portable and can run on a Live CD/USB, without a hard drive. Why should you use other OSes full of bloatware and unnecessary stuff when you can use a perfectly fine Linux alternative?

Windows 11 requires a machine with a TPM 2.0 chip. What if you don't have one? Well, here's a workaround: On Linux, install a TPM emulator and use that to install Windows 11 on KVM/QEMM.

A war is going on in my house. Yes, that’s right. I call it “The War of O.S.’s.” My wife prefers Mac. My son is clan Microsoft. And I come from the foreign land of Linux. However, in recent years, we have called a truce. I don’t bring up why I think Linux is better and they don’t try to sell me on why it’s not. As long as we keep to the treaty, there is peace at the Catron household. Well, maybe it’s not quite that bad.

Never thought I'd see the day, but it's here. The newest version now is Active Directory compliant and can be joined to an AD Domain. Group policies in Active Directory can now be used to manage Ubuntu workstations, and the workstations can freely access Active Directory resources (shares, etc.) using those AD credentials as a Single Sign On client.

Had some problems connecting to my Linux Mint 20.04 machine from WIndows 10 Pro. After much experimentation and searching, finally found this document on how to do it right.

GNOME 2 was very much agreed & accepted, people loved it. The disputes happened when GNOME 3 was created to be very different to the older GNOME 2. And GNOME 4 is just continuing the travesty.

So you do an ls -l, but with extra-large files, you end up with a file size displayed that is nearly unreadable like:

The fifth column of an ls -ls is the filesize column. The following command sorts the file listing by that column:
