If the current trend over the most recent months is a stable one, my #Mastodon followers will surpass my #Twitter followers within the next year. Go for it! ๐Ÿ’ช

The seventy-fourth edition of my weekly collection of news about #LinuxPhones (@PINE64 #PinePhone, #PinePhonePro, @purism #Librem5 and such), #LinBits, is out!

linmob.net/linbits-73-weekly-l

This week in Linux Phones: #libhandy 1.5.0, #Fluffychat 1.0, #NemoMobile running on two more devices, #postmarketOS adds support for another Snapdragon 845-based phone, #LoRa backplate fun and more!

Seen the hype. Read some reviews. Installed @MXLinux and guess what...really impressed. Within minutes of installing had running and edited a video with my brother. Layout logical, clear, straightforward.

My new recommended flavour for newbies, and likely my swap for the machine next time I have a fatal error. Though my laptop will still be ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ’ป

@gray just standard thankfully, and the feedback has been useful so hopefully we will pass on our free Secunderabad attempt...๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

@athairbirb I have a video of Small Child cycling in October 2020 which would have made him 3.25 years old. He was on his balance bike from 2 until then and absolutely loved it.

@athairbirb Both ours LOVED balance bikes, and I believe it helped them with 'real' bikes. They both now bike to school every day, 2km there and 2km back.

In fact, they've been doing it since youngest was aged 2 on balance bike, admittedly at that age he needed a helping hand sometimes but from 2.5 years onwards did the whole trip and back himself.

@b847c1960 @athairbirb @kev I've never used it before - had always assumed that there was extremely low risk partly due to low market share and partly due to the system controls.

I'm assuming that I *have* been naive!!

@athairbirb I'm just going to install something as a box-ticking exercise (will check out clamAV); I'm a bit more interested as to why they think linux systems need antivirus in order to be secure. Perhaps I've been naive?!
@kev

Baffled as to why my company failed the UK's assessment for not having anti-virus on . It was a hard fail.

Never come across this before - and last year we passed despite explicitly stating no antivirus on linux machines.

Assessors are

Anybody else come across this?

Considering trying #PostmarketOS on my #PinePhone .. has anyone gotten #Signal (desktop or android app) to work?

Mastodon usually has a dark theme by default, but you can switch to a light theme or high contrast theme if you prefer.

Go to Preferences > Appearance > Site Theme, choose the one you want and click "Save Changes".

Some instances have additional themes too. Ask your admin if you want more themes added.

Welcome to #Mastodon, here are couple tricks:
- find the content to follow, no company is shoving content into your face here
- initially check as many profiles as you can and follow if you enjoy their toots
- joinmastodon.org/communities lists instances
- /about page of each instance has "Discover users" + "what's happening": great way to find profiles to follow.
- click on "star" if you enjoyed the post, "boost" if you want your followers to enjoy it too
- block spammy accounts right away
