    • The Cons of the 7130
      • Battery life is not that great
      • Need proprietary charger if drained low
      • Loud under high load
      • Will not support 2 displaylink monitors very well
      • The largest micro sd card i can get it to reliably support is 32gb
      • Heavier than a normal tablet or surface pro
    • Mounted an sd drive to the save folder.
      • Remember to add to fstab or disks
      • Prefer to format ext4 next time

    • GAFilk in Atlanta was great 1/10-1/13.
    • I got rid of LMDE, wasn’t using it or even configuring it. Replaced with Deepin 15.8, couldn’t get Grub Customizer (they used to include this). Replaced that with MX 18. I REALLY like this distro but HATE the desktop.
    • I finally got tired of apologizing for KDE neon. Half the time I booted to it, the full desktop would not load; it would halt at different points.
    • LM 19.1 MATE has been offering zero problems for either myself or my wife. I did an upgrade from 19 on my machine, full install on hers.
    • Got all my new gear in from Tux Digital — sticker, hoodie. Hoodie is VERY lightweight — and one size smaller than advertised (but so am I). Absolutely love love love the logo.
    • LM 19.1 XFCE has not been any better than MATE in any way that I can see, and one of my games locks up (PySol FC) from the time I attempt to play the first card. Looking for a replacement.
    • Bodhi 5.0.0 huh?
  • Tony H
