Do I find Fedora Linux Buggy Or Unstable?

The last Windows operating system I used is XP and although it isn't
buggy or unstable, security is far and wide atrocious. The first 15 
minutes of using XP, my personal computer PC is already infected by
malware and virus but as long as you don't connect to the Internet 
you're okay. That was 2001.

I have used Debian, Ubuntu and OpenSuse since 2007, hopping from
one distribution to the other as long as I can find a spare PC or laptop.
I really have settled on Fedora for personal taste and preferences. I
like GNOME and Fedora brings GNOME fresh to my PC. Of course it 
wasn't love at first sight a few releases back. Fedora's installer 
needed work and important repos like for the NVIDIA drivers and 
proprietary music and video codecs are difficult to enable. It wasn't 
for somebody who's just starting out his journey in Linux land. 

Since then, open source graphics drivers have changed the world for
me. I don't hunt for drivers nowadays. Printers and scanners seemed 
to work like magic when I connect to a LAN. I find it surprising that
co-workers who are using Macs and Windows laptops are unable to
detect printers when my laptop can. That's a marked switch of places.

No I don't find Fedora Linux unstable. If you need something that's 
more unchanging, you can try other distributions like Debian's stable 
channel. I like the way Fedora has changed my attitude towards 
system updates. Since using Fedora (starting with 20) every update
has made my system happier. i look to the next update like it's
breakfast. Yes I do it everyday. Now compare that to what Microsoft
is doing with the big Windows 10 update coming up.

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.
