271: GNOME 42 & Our Open Source Android App Picks


Related help desk request:

Thanks, everyone! Such an informative episode. Learned lots about Android apps in particular. I have to say though, @dasgeek 's Arch hat stole the show for me this time :wink:

I also posted this recommendation under the YT Video, but maybe not everybody watches episodes there. @MichaelTunnell I also really like Obsidian as a tool, but I was bugged a little that its code was not available. So recently I started using Logseq instead. An opensource app, that is slightly different but uses the same concepts and is based also on markdown or alternatively on org file format. If you are interested in an open source alternative to obsidian you might wanna give it a try.

Can distrhopping be cured? Do I need a cure?

I can answer that. I barely distro hop at all now, the cure for me was finding a distro I was happy with, one which kept my wanting to return to it no matter what else I tried. That distro for me was Fedora but your own experience will differ, its your choice.

This thread was created for an event last year.

If you’d like to ask the hosts a question i’d recommend posting it to the latest DL thread or using: comments@destinationlinux.org

Is there any new shows in planning or new shows joining dln?

^ Previous 3 posts are new, moved here from last year’s event.

Is there a list of the apps you guys went over in the episode?

Great episode folks but no shownotes? Was listening to the recommendations and thinking I must write that down but then thought nah Michael will list them for me… I am surprised that none of you use Syncthing? I find it great but it was tricky to set up. Also surprised Jill’s using Box, there doesn’t seem to be a Linux app for it. Thanks for the excellent content as always though.

Who’s ready to try a 30 day GrapheneOS challenge? @MichaelTunnell @dasgeek @jill_linuxgirl :grinning:

@dasgeek How about putting that Pixel 6 to good use?

I listened to this when driving my car and was wondering if there is a list of the apps you all covered? Can’t see anything in the show notes or on the YT channel. You covered a lot of ground and don’t want to have re-listen to work out what they were.

Tnx :slight_smile:
