These are such good articles and you can see how much effort went into it.

But I'm really disappointed about the harsh judgement the author has apparently gotten from some people (see part 2 of the series at the very bottom).

Come on, guys! We can do better as a Rust and open source community!

I did the upgrade, because I've kept getting scary ext4 file system corruption errors and had to run fsck within busybox.

After fsck I could boot again normally, but every time, my tried to update the package "docker io", it has suddenly set my file system to read-only mode (because of corruption). I uninstalled io, backed up my data and installed 20.4.

I hope the file system corruption thing is not an indication of hardware failure. 😬

I've just upgraded my 18.04 installation to 20.4 and it is running smooth as . All settings/data have been preserved.😍

The only little bummer is that I had to increase the signal strength of my WLAN router, because my WLAN adapter kept loosing the connection.
Very weird.🤨 I thought an upgrade should _up_grade, not _down_grade. Well, that's , I guess ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. But all in all, I'm really happy with the result.

Thank you @Kubuntu and @kde !😘 ❤️

Have you ever heard someone comparing strawberries to lemons?


Well, then stop comparing with !

The word "par" in the word "compare" means "equal".

Yes, they are both pretty new programming languages...and that's it - there is nothing more to compare them against.

I always forget that you can posts in to read them later...

@celia proposal would help tremendously here 🤗

According to programming language ranking is at the first place of the ranking.

And now is supposed to replace C, right?

Currently, Rust is not even in the top 20.

But now, let's look into the future, say 10-15 years... mean...Rust will be...

snapping allows you to lock the viewport to certain elements or locations after a user has finished scrolling.

Did you know you can do the following in to style elements that have been reached via link (e.g.

*:target {
outline: 3px dotted red

This will put a 3px dotted red outline around the element.
