  1. I want to thank all of you. I've primarily been listening to other Linux broadcasts and in their telegram group, but I've switched to your telegram group in the last two days.

  3. It seems that the closer we get to WSL2 being released and the more Microsoft open sources, the more hatred against Microsoft I saw in the other Linux telegram group. Ironically, it made me feel alienated and pushed me more towards trying out Windows 10 and spending time on it. I bought a Ryzen 5 3600 with 32GB DDR4-3600 so I can spin up multiple Linux VMs and enjoy myself in Windows 10.

  5. I've been using Linux since 1997, but when a community becomes all about hatred of something else rather than love of Linux, then you push people away...even your own community. I'm so glad that you guys have managed to create a healthy community that does not fall into that trap.

  7. So, thank you. Your telegram group is what keeps me seeing the Linux desktop community as a healthy enthusiast group. Ironically, it's people who are too young to have been using Linux in the gates and Ballmer era that spew the most hate. Linux survived being targeted by Microsoft, but it cannot survive being focused on hate rather than a love for open source.
