I'm still a windows user to be honest. The closest I've ever got to Linus is using a Mac, and I really don't see a reason to change. I gt that Windows 10 has privacy concerns, but I'm not into using a whole new OS that has a completely different U.I.

Pondering that myself. It's a long term project at this point, since I don't really have an application in mind. Let us know how Mint works. May eventually set up a Gemini server locally...

Mint is better for Windows refugees. Based off Ubuntu and has the same layout as Windows. Also Linux mint is designed to just be a personal desktop, I don’t think it’s meant to be a server.

I actually introduced him to Linux Mint, see attached image

Yeah, I'd heard that about Mint before. As for server, I might run that with Ubuntu directly, or some variety thereof. Maybe Debian.

BSD is better than GNU/Linux IMO ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
