1. The Framework laptop will be my next purchase for multiple reasons but the ONE decision that they made that makes me hesitant is the 3:2 ratio screen that is not the standard 1080p. It will make things weird when adding multiple screens. That said, I’ll take the irritation of the weird screen with the repair-ability of the rest of it. I think more than 1080p on a 13 or 14 in form factor is a waste. :slightly_smiling_face:

    I should note that I am interested in the 13", not the 16" as I don’t want a laptop that big. I want a laptop for laptop-y things and a desktop for desktop-y things.

    I DO think that the Framework is the best overall laptop out there. Also, that main board, THINK about the possibilities… There are all kinds of things there for those in the maker space. I might buy some main boards for some specific projects. It will likely displace the the Pi4 in some tasks.

  2. Just to add to the idea of a DL Minecraft server… I agree, but how a Minetest server? Fully free and open source and loads of fun.

    Especially with the Mineclone2 addon it is very close to Minecraft as well as being accessible to all. My kids have been enjoying it for the last few years in our house and, as a side benefit, my son has been able to see how open source community development works and has begun to see the benefits community projects.
