Been playing around with both #snap and #flatpak recently. Given my less-than-common setup (KDE with a global menubar) snap apps work with the menubar but don't play too great with the system theme, while flatpak apps work fine with the themes but don't have menubar integration. Add to that the general overhead involved with both of these I think I'll probably stick with what's in the package repos...
A couple months ago I decided to put #Manjaro ( #KDE edition) on my PC, fully replacing #Windows 10. My verdict? Barely any issues, and even many of my games run just fine via Steam or Lutris. Nice! Not a new #Linux user, mind, but never tried to use it full time before. I still do keep a Windows VM around in case anything does crop up though that requires it.

Spent a bit of time putting a makeshift version of #Treble on an older phone I keep around for fun like this, a Wileyfox Swift. After some tense moments (first the script for Treble decided to wipe my SD card only for me to find it was actually just formatted weird to start with, then the script itself actually needed running twice for some reason to actually finish) this 2015 phone is now running #Android Pie GSIs with a working vendor partition. Works decently and now more future proof 🎉
My experience with social occasions is a little odd. I generally feel like I want to know more people than I already do (which isn't saying much really), though when it's possible I'm generally too anxious to do it. Even when I do, I'm usually not very social at all. Partly because I'm not sure how people will react to things, and partly because I can be pretty closed in in terms of myself.
It's not quite as awkward when I'm with existing friends, but even then I don't say much.
I even took some liberties to make it look better (IMO) on certain platforms. Take Windows 7, for example. On Firefox this used a weird purple-ish background for tabs (to emulate the default state on Win10?). Instead, I decided to adopt an Australis fog. I think it looks great personally.
Android 9 is pretty great all things considered, very smooth. Running it on a custom ROM for now, but I still want to see Treble support when OOS comes out for my #OnePlus 3T. I can dream, right? 😅
