So… Pop!_OS…

Well, I’ll say this: I really like the installer. I’ll also say this: I really DO NOT like Gnome Shell. I mean, it’s fine. But, out of the box, it’s just a blank screen and a nebulously named menu, “Activities”. If I had never used Gnome before, I would be lost. Fortunately, I had used Gnome before and I knew about the extension system. However, there was no “extensions” entry in the Settings Manager. I had to launch Firefox and go to extensions.gnome.org. THEN, I had to install a plug-in to Firefox that would let me interact with the extension system on my install. All that, just to get “Dash to Dock” working. Whew! There are decidedly few apps installed by default. Firefox, libre office, Geary… There isn’t even a media player! There is the “Pop!_Shop” for installing apps but, I just came from elementary is and this is the same app store with a different name. Besides, I’m a command line guy when it comes to apps. Fortunately, there was a terminal installed. ::eye roll::. Lastly, as with elementary, THERE ARE NO APP INDICATORS! I’m sorry, Pop!_OS, you’re too hard to type and I feel like an idiot trying to use your implementation of Gnome. Hard pass.

Episode 06 – Faith! What is it good for?

Note: Another mobile production today; trying to get caught up.

Today I give a little insight into my relationship with faith. I was raised in a conservative, Evangelical household and I have grown up and through that. Today I identify as agnostic, “spiritual but not religious”, not a regular church goer. But I am starting to miss the relationships and comraderie and community.

Stay tuned next episode for my first guest interview. Bye, for now!
