Switching E-Mails, Hosting My Own

I’ve ping-ponged (that’s a word right?) all over the place throughout the decades I’ve been online. Earthlink, Hotmail, Yahoo, AOL, GMail, iCloud, Outlook, Live, and others I can’t even remember. Now that I am older I believe I am done with doing what the “normies” do. I care more about privacy now than I ever have. My past habits show how much I’ve changed.

The Final Switch to Linux

In 2005 I made the switch from Windows XP to Mac OS X. My experiences with it were refreshing. The interface was well designed and ease of use was great compared to what I was used to with Windows XP. At the time I was looking for anything more enjoyable or easier to use than Windows.

Which Distro? Which Desktop Environment?

During my switch from Windows to Linux I tried many distros and desktop environments along the way. As far as desktop environments I like KDE and Gnome3 the best. Sure they are probably polar opposites of each other, but both stood out to me as different enough to get me to like them.

Microsoft Edge Infects Linux

I totally understand that some web developers feel they may benefit from Microsoft releasing their newest web browser based on Google’s "Chromium Project" called "Microsoft Edge" on Linux. However, as long as Microsoft doesn’t modify the rendering engine, there shouldn’t be any problems in rendering a website or the rendering performance. So the premise that web developers need it on Linux is a fallacy. We all know that at some point Microsoft will think it knows best and what is best for you as a user. They can’t help themselves!
