Just Tried Linux And I'm Glad I Did

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

<br>I've just tried installing OpenSuse and Fedora on my computer along
with Ubuntu. These distros are the top distros in the Distrowatch page
hit rankings. People do ask a lot of questions about which one they
should use in their computers. They are easy to install because of their
graphical installation tools. New users will find them friendly to
install and configure.<br>

<br>My experience in installing these linux distros is one of delight
and surprise. I have installed linux distros since 2004 and compared to
the present, that is like the moon landing while today' s affair is like
a party. I mean friends bring their laptops and do it together-like it's
a party.<br>

<br>As long as the wireless connection is holding and reliable, there's
no reason why you can't have a party and install linux.<br>

<br>I use Ubuntu. I use Unity. I have no problem with the dash and the
unity-search. You can turn it off if you don't want it. I think
Canonical and the Ubuntu developers did a fantastic job with trusty tahr
(14.04). It was sad when they had to drop Ubuntu One but the users have
other free alternatives anyway. <br>

<br>I am a happy user after trying out several outstanding distros that
represent the present crop of newly released linux operating system.
They are secure by default with no additional tweaking needed to make
them ready for the challenges of the web. <br>

America Must Evolve Fast Or Die

This was a music festival concert venue in Las Vegas, Nevada. A shooter in the 32nd floor of a nearby hotel across the general area opened fire then shot himself. He killed 59 people in what reports call the biggest mass shooting in modern American history to date.
America must learn from the lessons of previous mass shootings otherwise this tragedy will happen again. Reasonable animals evolve when their lives and the life of the pack or group are threatened. They change how they face the problem and not just move on. They don't dismiss reality. They recognize the problem and listen to reason. For those who say nothing can be done, you're wrong. There is something America can do. It is not premature to talk about gun control. This is the time to talk about it.

GnuCash In Arch Linux

I updated a number of packages today and Gnucash won't start. I immediately went to the Archlinux website to see what's happening. I can't seem to find the package in the community repo. There's a thread in AUR on how to compile Gnucash by hand no AUR helpers.

But I tried to compile goffice and webkit2, needed packages for Gnucash-git. No. It doesn't work for me.

Funny but I'm now using my Android Tablet with Gnucash app to record transactions. This is working. We need to have the stable GnuCash back. This is a stop gap on my part. Transactions don't stop when computers stop. Please don't make me go back to paper.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Poster

The Last Jedi is coming this December 2017. I can't wait. My guess is we can watch it later in the Christmas season or even later than the New Year 2018. The Filipino Film Festival season usually starts the 15th December up to January 7th. Only Filipino films are shown in theaters. Unless there's a special run, we would see it much later.
