A low-key good experience for Thor-oughly new penguins: Elementary OS 6, aka Odin


Ever since I first played with Linux and installed software from a software repository I loathe the way you need to do things on a Windows box.

Every time I got a new Windows box I spend hours or days visiting the various websites of various software makers to download the installers for everything I want. And that's basic stuff:

* media - VLC, no question

* text editor - everything is better than what comes along with a fresh Windows

* browser - the same

* PDF - getting better over the years
