It turned out to be a lovely sunny day in England so I'm only just getting started on the Hades Canyon NUC ๐Ÿ› ๏ธ ๐Ÿ”ฉ

My Intel Hades Canyon NUC pre-order just arrived! ๐Ÿ˜ Time to fill it with RAM and M.2s and wrestle some Ubuntu MATE into it๐Ÿง๐Ÿ’ช

Today is a good day for new toys ๐Ÿ˜€ Here's the new Gemini PDA paired with my Steam controller steaming via the Steam Link app from my Ubuntu MATE NUC ๐ŸŽฎ

My crowd funded Gemini PDA arrived. What a fab little device ๐Ÿ˜Ž I'll have to have a go at getting Ubuntu MATE running on it ๐Ÿง

I've joined the wireless gaming revolution with the LogitechG 903 mouse and Corsair K63 keyboard. Both working great in Ubuntu MATE 18.04 ๐Ÿง ๐Ÿ’ช

The NEW Software Boutique is coming. Now with Snap support!

Luke Horwell and I are at the Snap Sprint taking place this week. We've been working on a new version of Software Boutique.

We've added support for snaps via snapd-glib and debs are now handled via PackageKit.

If you want to learn a little bit more, Luke has also posted in the Ubuntu MATE Community forum:
