  1. Some really good conversation around what it will take to get Linux “across the line” as it were. I think we could use a few more really good YT personalities talking up Linux stuff, and showing people how to do things. There’s a few good ones out there, but there are also a few that make some good Linux content along with some….other content, that could easily push people away or give them the wrong idea about what us “Linux People” are all about. It would be nice to see some of the people that make really really good content get pushed a little higher in the search results.

    I think another thing that helps get people’s attention (I think it was touched on in the episode) is a polished good looking interface, and a clean user experience. As the official “Linux People” we tend to recommend the same distros, Ubuntu, Fedora, but there are a lot of more niche distros, MX, Garuda, etc that make some really clean stuff that some users might really gravitate to.

  2. But I don’t wanna go main-stream! :slight_smile: When the normies discover ANYTHING and it becomes popular, all the problems start, especially corporate greed, spying, monetary things etc. Stay small, stay golden pony boy.

  3. I think the plan is, If Linux goes mainstream, we go to BSD. Its still a win-win for all.

    I’m still behind on the episodes.

    The more Linux goes mainstream, the more geeks of the planet will gradually become Debian Developers. The more Debian Developers there are, I see that as a bulwark against corporate greed taking over the Linux world.
