The other day, I took the plunge and removed Windows from my laptop. Since I installed Linux, I've used it nearly unanimously. The only time I would switch back to Windows was when I needed to use Excel. That did not justify it staying on my system and taking up space. So, I copied all of the files from my user account and deleted it. I installed Windows on a Virtual Machine in case I ever needed to use Excel or any other Windows exclusive software.
So over the weekend, I spent a lot of time making tweaks and changes on my laptop to improve the overall experience for myself. In the process, I learned a lot about GNOME extensions. Previously, I was operating on a very stock experience. It wasn't the worst thing in the world, but I knew I could do more.
Yesterday I logged into Windows because I wanted to stream something for friend and it's much more convenient that way. Well, as I logged in, I got a pop-up that my BIOS had an update available. I like keeping my systems up to date, so I figured “what's the worst that could happen?” Well, I learned the answer to that question.
I've spent most of the day updating different systems of mine. One of the main things I updated was reinstalling Debian. I also added new links on the blog, downloaded screenshots from my consoles, and uninstalled some apps from my phone. The last thing I did was switched my Tails USB to a smaller storage device.
Got the plat in dark souls. The end was driving me bonkers if my last post didn't make it obvious. But I'm happy to say that I did it in 3 weeks, which might be a personal record for a FromSoft game (I'd have to look back at Sekiro). Not sure what game I will focus on next, but I've got tons of options.
Hooray! Yesterday I managed to install Linux properly. Thanks to several helpful people on the Linux forums helping me get the right things installed. I've got a basic setup at the moment, but I'm very happy.
