Probably a good time to mention that if you enjoy using mastodon.social you can support it through Patreon:

patreon.com/mastodon

Or through OpenCollective:

And of course if you're on a different server you can check if your admin also has a Patreon and support them

Something that is really sad in #Linux is the #PDF software, I now have to use one to annotate, another one as a viewer and a third one when I want to shuffle around, rotate, delete or add pages within the PDF.
One is Okular, the other is PDF viewer, the third is PDF shuffler, under #Windows I can do all of this with PDF Xchange.

"You are acting as an unpaid Research and Development department for silicon valley. Because if a startup here succeeds, it gets bought by Google or Facebook. If it fails, we pick up the bill."

Cool, erster Monat nur noch Linux auf dem Rechner und ich vermisse nichts und kann noch alles was ich vorher auch konnte.
Inkl. Games, Layouts, Video und Klimbim.

Cool, cool.
