I don’t really have an agenda - I’m doing graphics programming to up my skills - looking forward to Vulkan. I’m running Linux because I grew up on commercial Unixes (SGI, Sun, Digital's Alpha), but it’s been 15 years of Mac and Windows and I can see I don’t have the the working knowledge of the Linux world to be a contributor yet.

I have no specific agenda - getting used to this new “digital home” (as Set Sakrecoer described it) means dealing with my preferred peripherals (tablet is a biggie, since I like to draw).

I think trying a few different desktop environments might be a good idea (I have spare OS partitions if I get stuck and need to reinstall!). If spamming the list is a waste, I’d be happy to get recommendations directly: daniel at syntheticblue.com <mailto:daniel at syntheticblue.com> — Thanks!
