Teams is available for Linux, indeed I have actually found it more stable than under Win10 (I was using AlmaLinux 8). Other solutions exist for Linux, notably Zoom.

How did that even work? Didn't remap the RAM into the bottom 48K of the machine? Normally on the Spectrum the first 16K is the ROM, and most CP/M (Z80) programs assumed a start address if 0x0100. Unless CP/M programs intended for the Spectrum had to be rebuilt for the odd memory layout.
Another way of accessing Teletext services
There is a client (open source, cross-platform) available from the Matrix Brandy developers, which can access some online Viewdata/Videotex and a Teletext service based on Teefax but with additional content not part of the main Teefax service. They also supply standalone builds of the client for Windows and RISC OS, Linux users are expected to build it themselves (or build Brandy and run it from the examples directory!)
Re: Long term success ?
It may be useful to know that AlmaLinux's migration script can migrate from Rocky in addition to CentOS and the other RHEL clones, and similarly Rocky's migration script can migrate from Alma in addition to the others.
I don't see that as squabbling over each other's user base but instead a very sensible insurance policy for the users should one or the other go to the wall.

Re: Nowadays of course the boot is on the other foot
I forward my work phone into a VoIP-in number on my own voip box. On there I have rules that permit calls when on call and during office hours. Out of hours calls route to a dedicated voicemail box with a suitable outgoing message. The big exception is when I am on leave, the calls go to a message telling the caller I'm on leave and to contact my manager if it's important, before dropping the call (no voicemail).
Re: The uneasy feeling about all the MS provided (spy) stuff on their Linux Azure VM's
That's a bit mad, they managed to create a yum repo for their Teams on Linux stuff, you'd have thought they could do the same for this, and drop the entry in /etc/yum.repos.d so it would be kept up to date when you patch your OS.
But no, they didn't.
After quietly switching to slower NAND in an NVMe SSD, Western Digital promises to be a bit louder next time
I evaluated the Paragon driver for my then employer, and back then I wasn't entirely impressed. Sure, it was faster than NTFS-3G but it's error checking left a lot to be desired. Point it at a non-NTFS partition? Kernel panic. Hit a bad sector on your hard disc? Kernel panic. We ended up running with NTFS-3G as running slower was preferable to collapsing in a heap at the slightest hint of trouble.
The swift in-person response is part of the service (and nothing to do with the thing I broke while trying to help you)
Been there, I typoed the default gateway when remote configuring a new physical server. No ILO or iDrac either. Oops... (Though it wasn't yet live, thank $DEITY).
I was preparing myself to have to take that long journey to the data centre to fix it at the console, when it dawned on me that I had access to another box on the same subnet. Thankfully this worked and I was able to SSH in and sort it from my desk, but that was a really close shave. Almost too close.

Rocky has competition as more CentOS alternatives step into the ring: Project Lenix, Oracle Linux vie for attention
Re: Build process public?
Oracle is a bargepole situation. They have form for being downright evil.
I did test their distro on an old Atom box. It installed (eventually), and booted into their Unbreakable kernel. Which caused dnf to crash with an illegal instruction after hosing the RPM database irreparably. Reinstalling and forcing the boot to use the RH-compatible kernel dnf worked.
Hmm. Did I manage to break their unbreakable kernel?
Re: What would I run away from fastest ?
This. It may be free now, but down the road they can introduce a feature, enabled by default and buried in the release notes state it is chargeable. Then audit you down the road. I would not like to be in that position. Also, they have form in demanding payment out of the blue for something that was once free. *cough* Java *cough* Putting that sort of liability on my employer is not something I will risk my job for.
I have slammed the brakes on our CentOS 8 upgrade plan, and will wait things out to see what happens regarding alternatives.

Apple Arm Macs ship, don't expect all open-source apps to work without emulation – here's what you need to know
Re: I'm going to be called a Fanboi but...
I am no fanboy, but Apple have been part-owners of ARM since the Acorn days, thus most likely had more close involvement in it than pretty other manufacturer (maybe aside from Broadcom, who acquired Element 14, which was previously known as.... yup, Acorn.)
Linux on ARM started life as a port to run on Acorn kit. I remember seeing it run on an Archimedes machine. Okay, it was slow as hell, but seeing it able to do stuff on an 8MHz box was an achievement.
(And knowing how well RISC OS ran on it, it still feels blisteringly fast on the original Raspberry Pi.)
New lawsuit: Why do Android phones mysteriously exchange 260MB a month with Google via cellular data when they're not even in use?
My ex-wife's Blu phone kept turning the mobile data on by itself, so I installed a profile action thingy that has the action of disabling mobile data when the phone was unlocked. No such misbehaviour on any HTC, Huawei(!), Samsung or Motorola device I've had.
As for scanning WiFi when switched off, that is switchable under Location Settings (on my Moto One Hyper).
