Obviously gaming is sub-optimal but I'm not much of a gamer. The lack of MS Office was my biggest concern but it's proven unwarranted.
The only time I spin up a Windows VM is to run my high speed photo scanner... the tools included alas, do not work in Linux.
My attempts at being a Linux end user started back in 1997 or so. Throughout the years, I've made many attempts to switch but Linux always felt like it was stuck at 80% ready for prime time.
Happily, that changed in early 2020. I've been using Pop!OS as my user OS exclusively (at home) and very rarely run into a "oof" issue.
I enjoy my Synology NAS but I really need to set aside some time to dive into the stuff I bought it for.
- Personal cloud / contacts / calendar via Nextcloud
- Family accessible shared photo archive (I've collected photos going back to the late 1800's)
- Investigate personal Fediverse instance
- Investigate Kodi (though maybe not)

So, #PETA wrote to me asking for money. My response was basically "no, I know that you kill more animals than any other shelter in VA, steal and kill pets, block feral cat colonies from being legalized.
I know, tilting at windmills. But if it changes one mind...
Google Fi's reliability is spotty, and getting answers to questions through support is an exercise in frustration. And I guess I should be deGoogling anyway.
Verizon? I have an old grudge. Maybe it's time to let that go.
