I’m gonna be honest, I may know how to manage Linux, servers, and the like, but I don’t know shit about coding actual applications. But that doesn’t mean I still don’t benefit from Linux’s open source nature. When an application doesn’t work, or I feel the need to change something, there’s always someone smarter than me who has a patch or a change that I can use.

Ubuntu is not bad, but there are better options. It’s unstable, a little slow, and I don’t much like their take on GNOME. Plus, they are attempting to replace many of the system apps with Snap packages, which are slower and worse in general.
PopOS is pretty great. The Cosmic desktop is super nice, and it seems to be pretty stable. It’s got a lot of hardware support and is very beginner friendly.
Linux Mint is probably your best bet. It’s extremely stable, simple, and functional. Cinnamon is an amazing desktop environment, and their takes on XFCE & Mate are good too. Plus, they’ve got a version based directly on Debian.
I feel like a lot of these are non issues. It’s not like we have any shortage of land, and for the most part, we don’t have a shortage of water, especially considering that many farmers are using well or rain water. And while veggies do have significant amounts of protein for a small amount of carbon, you have to eat much more to get the same amount of protein. I don’t mean to shit on vegetarians, and I understand some of their logic, but I think it’s gonna be a while before the economic and environmental benefits of plant-based protein can even come close to the health benefits of meat.
People in the US choose to drive for the majority of their trip because there’s no other way to do it. There are no trains, and most of the buses (If they exist) don’t go to very many places.
But yeah, the Rainforest Cafe idea is pretty stupid. It didn’t make for a good video, and I don’t understand.
Happiness comes from goals, love, and expression. I strive to do as much of all three as possible.
