Hello I am Lexie,
(my name is Ariel in Hebrew, but don’t like to sound like a disney princess, hence i use Lexie online).
I am a bio chemist, ex macos and apple users, moved to the Linux world recently close to 1 year, tried few Linux OSs been using manjaro for a while now, gnome at first as any mac os user then KDE (after getting my Tablet and phone I started to look for gnome alternatives) KDE seems nice and looked really cool.
I moved from Apple after 19 years I was unhappy with it in general. My best friends boyfriend or fiance @AstraAdria4Ari conviced me over 1 year ago to move to Linux I did and I am happy with it now.
As I bio chemist I even learned to make timeshift backup, backup home with dejadup even installed from usb my tablet even burned the usb on my own (probably easy for everyone here I guess).
That is my Linux short story, DLN got recommended if I want to learn more about Linux hence I joined. My first month of the show and the community here I learned a lot and I am happy to be part of it.
All the best Lexie.
Greetings, and alaichem shalom. I tend to go by Friar because my name was Belle’s “crazy” father on Beauty and the Beast. That, and a wildly overplayed song by the Steve Miller Band.
Welcome, so happy to have you here and glad you found Linux! Happy Manjaro user here as well. Curious if you have found any open-source applications to use in your industry of bio-chemistry?
well for my work I only use firefox browser and all of my work is hosted on NextCloud and access via website address with numbers, like https:192.168.123.10 and I log in and use it. I don’t use www.somethingsome.com and it only works from the network at my lab or I can use VPN app called wireguard or wyreguard not sure of the exact name of the VPN app we use and all I know is that the coders use something called electron to develop all the apps. I am not IT person cannot explain better.
I am genome expert and I work on genome research working on stuff like genetics algorithms etc.
Thanks for sharing your Linux story.
Well, I’m not a smoker. Haha.
