In keeping with my Linux experiment, tonight I am typing to you from a hotel in the middle of nowhere, on a PC that I converted to Ubuntu.
This is unheard of for me to go on a trip with an untested box, with a software I am only vaguely familiar with. There is madness to my motive.
I am writing as I always do on the word processor first, in this case LibreOffice.
Right off the bat it look a lot like word.
Without Grammarly running, and without word, I find that I question my spelling much more often, as the tools to check it are not as robust.
I am still feeling my way around Ubuntu, and I must admit that what the programmers have done is impressive.
I am spoiled with Word, and of course I know how to use it proficiently, unlike this tool.
I hope that you have a super weekend and that you write something touching, prophetic and just down rite breath taking!
My early opinion on this device is as follows.
Using an old laptop destined for the shelf, investing $100 in an SSD drive has this laptop fully functional. Ubuntu is a perfectly stable operating system from what I can tell. There are many good apps that people have written. Use the reviews before you download them to save yourself the hassle of removing them later.
I don’t have access to my photos or online drives so this is going to be a plane Jane posting.
The madness was with only this PC to work with it would force me to use it. Immersion therapy if you will.
Much Love -TW
