and Nadella has been replaced
Any sources for this? According to Wikipedia, he still is the current CEO of Microsoft.
Don't know why - but I really like that combination.
I've gotten off my schedule of reading Starship Troopers and TMiaHM every year - but I did just reread The Moon is a Harsh Mistress last week-end. My wife was in Ukraine and I was kind of bored but not motivated enough to do something that took effort.
I've outgrown RAH's politics but I still love the story.
I'm totally in on google - drank the kool-aid and all that. We use their products at my work a ton so I've always got chrome open on my desktop, laptop and phone.
For some reason magnet links that I clicked in Chrome were opening the Transmission client instead of Ktorrent. I remember doing something in the past related to this - though I think the issue then was that chrome didn't know how to handle them at all.
It's broken now as far as browsing categories - and has been for a while. You can search for specific packages and install them/uninstall them but you can't use apper to just browse through the different types of software available.

I really like it over the big, big boxes that are normal for so many desktops.
Support for Fedora 21 is coming to an end and so I decided to upgrade to Fedora 22.
I don't run the default Fedora install, I use the KDE spin. I realize KDE isn't the primary desktop for Fedora, but until now it's been alright. I use Fedora for a lot of reasons but mostly because it is the distro I know. I know it because it is the first distro I used on a regular basis for more than just messing around. I did that because at my work we got a new server running RedHat.
Windows 10 is really not that bad at all. I use it on my gaming system. The 'spyware' piece is trivial to mitigate, and you do not have to install updates depending on the version you get. You can defer them with Pro.
