Anyone got any ideas for how to get Linux adopted, that aren't just victim-blaming Windows users?

Ok, KDE Neon didn't work out.

Fortunately, that other Ubuntu-based mobile arm7 os still exists, courtesy of UBPorts.

(Sidenote, I seem to be a bit of an armv7 fangirl.)

Umm, that can't be right, there probably isn't that much mass storage at my entire university, let alone a single cute little Nexus smartphone.

Just told DHL to ship to one of their offices that's accessible by mass transit, because I don't want to deal with UCSD mail unless I absolutely have to.

Oh god, making my own compiler is its own undertaking. Even retargeting a simple existing one like vbcc appears to be a comparable effort to the rest of designing a custom ISA.

I guess I'll be spending the next week (more like a year, adjusted for ADHD) of personal project writing this thing.

"DHL Express 2393956095 from SYABAS TECHNOLO estimated Mon Jan 20. "

That's always something good to see in your SMS when just waking up.

What's better, I can give them my physical street address (which differs from my USPS mailing address), which is good because the parcel center is probably closed Jan 20.

Quick question,

Anyone know any good C compilers or assemblers easily adapted to fully custom instruction sets?
