    5 Things You Did in Linux This Year

    Matt -

    1- I’ve transitioned completely to using Window Managers Only. Mostly I used i3 This year, but DWM has been my choice for the last month or so.

    2- Created my own Firefox userChrome.css this year that I’ve been using for a while now. It’s awesome.

    3- Discovered zim, which has transformed the way I take notes, write outlines, and plan for videos and NaNoWriMo

    4- Learned more about Linux Audio than I ever thought I’d need to.

    5- Still on the lookout for a better Office/Word Processor. LibreOffice is kinda bad.

    Martin -

    1 - Switched to Linux about 98% of the time

    2 - Community

    3 - Amount of free choice available

    4 - Virtual Box

    5 - Security
