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?

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:
HBO has arbitrarily banned their service from paying, law-abiding Linux users.
The fifth column of an
ls -ls is the filesize column. The following command sorts the file listing by that column:
