I went through Ubuntu... Their politics sucked... I moved to mint... they have gone to systemd... Don't like that... I really want to show the other nerds that I deal with how lame their software choices are (they still use Windows, one of them uses a Mac as a fashion statement).
So, I've been using Mint for a while and can't update because they have moved to systemd (with the NSA backdoor).
I'm keen on the possibility of compiling and running stuff from scratch... Like Stallman(hallowed be thy name).
What should I do to show all of the "plebes" in my office that I am smarter and faster and more adept than they are with their windows boxes?
