This was a great edition.

I enjoyed the interview with Ryan @dasgeek. I will quote a piece from it that I really liked:

I would love to get more involved in the digital divide and helping to educate newcomers to Linux on the importance of open source. Versus just wagging the proprietary bone of ‘look we finally have Microsoft Office’…I would rather promote LibreOffice, Krita, OBS, Kdenlive, Audacity, and projects that everyone can learn regardless of their financial standing.

That is exactly how I see it and I also try to promote open source alternatives at work, in my case in the education sector, even though it does not always work out.

Thank you Eric and thank you Ryan!
