Trisquel 8 First Impressions

My Trisquel 8 Desktop and Wallpaper

Once I customize the look and feel Trisquel 8 becomes a very pretty and stable Desktop.

I installed WordPress without any weirdness or issues. That meets my minimum requirements. Additionally, not a single glitch and I was able to enjoy a brew and Linux Game Cast while installing WordPress. I’d be remiss if I didn’t give credit where credit is due to the Nouveau driver support running my Nvidia 750ti perfectly. Update: Unable to log back in after suspend soured me a little. Rather than take the time to research the problem I decided to give Solus a shot.

Trisquel 7 still chugging along

Just performed updates to this seven year old netbook and still impressed the amount of work that is possible with an archaic piece of netbook hardware. It was worthless as a Windows PC when my father picked it up new at Costco. However, as soon as he abandoned this thing to a closet I dropped in a new battery and it’s been my third string system.

I’ve ran Xubuntu, Manjaro and Peppermint OS on this system eventually sticking to Trisquel 7 so I would have a free software system in the house. To get wifi working I use a USB dongle from Think Penguin.
