Hi Rob and Rocco,

Just thought I’d give a shout out to my new favourite podcast, thank you both for all of your hard work, and on your respective YouTube channels too.

As self-confessed distro-hoppers I was wondering if you could discuss elementary os and maybe a focus on minimalism in distros – being ill right now gave me an epiphany that I used to distro-hop like crazy until I landed on elementary. When I started using it, I felt trapped because it’s not as flexible as (for example) KDE and hated it until I realised that it has its own work flow that prevented me from breaking it – now I rely on it and can’t imagine switching. Is this minimalist approach key to stability in the Linux desktop? When I can configure a desktop, I find I will and then I inevitably switch to another distro when I break it – but when I can’t tinker with it, I get things done more effectively and am more likely to stick with it.

Sorry for the short essay, thanks, and keep up the great work!

Kind regards,
William Willis Whinn
