Ubuntu Mate, experiment has concluded in failure. With regular updates making the system less stable it finally failed at boot tonight and now running Darik's Boot and Nuke and plan on returning to Mint.

masto.jews.international is a Mastodon instance for Jews to conspire, socialize, and debate together. This is intended to be a pluralistic space, but it is also an internationalist, anti-capitalist, anti-racist and pro-diaspora community. Nationalistic, racist, and classist perspectives will not be welcome.
