One of my favorite Linux utilities, although tiny, quiet, and mostly out of sight, is the CUPS-PDF printer. It was around before I came to Linux in 2010, but if you're new you may have missed it.
It's my default printer on all my machines. It works, it's local, and has filled the void left behind by the "Send-to-OneNote" virtual printer from the Microsoft days.
I've come to the conclusion that the greater majority of the general public just doesn't care about privacy and security.
Whenever I try to explain to legitimate issues with things like Facebook, Google, and microphone enabled connected devices, I feel I'd have a better chance of convincing them of a recent alien abduction.
People just don't seem to care.

So Debian turns 26 today. I've only just started playing around with Debian 10, but I've been using "Based on Debian" for almost 10 years. That must count for something.
I got started in Linux with Ubuntu 10.04. I remember browsing the Software Center and finding a "cool" program to install.
But how many programs wouldn't even launch back then? You'd click the icon, a little cursor feedback and then nothing. At times it seemed like half of them didn't even work.
Times have changed. "Most" of the software in the repositories work and I wouldn't touch a software center (I'm a CLI guy).
