@ice oh! interesting! Didn't know you could run MOD on top of Zynthian. That's really cool.

@zachir @lunduke Would probably not work very well for me given the fact I live extremely remote ;)

@rostiger I was a Mac user (fanatic) since the 90's and switched to Linux in 2013. I also started with Elementary OS because of how mac like it was. Made the switch a bit easier.

@peregrine Orgmode sounds awesome except it has always bugged me that it would force me to use a specific text editor (emacs) to reap the true benefits of it. I guess the same goes for Vim.

Dear merveillians [sic?] and Mastodonians, any recommendations for good note taking software/workflows out there? Preferably open source and for Linux.

@Merristasis @neauoire You guys have any extended experience with the Pomodoro technique? I always feel like my brain starts getting used to this "trick" after a while and it stops being effective.
