I installed the Mycroft open source digital assistant using PiCroft on my RPi 4 this afternoon. It works remarkably well.

I usually burned many ISO images to a USB stick to install an OS and/or to perform any other task(s). Now when I discovered ventoy.net some months ago, I realized that I no longer need to do so anymore. No more Etcher or any other USB Stick Burner. I just placed the amount of ISOs I need based on the USB depending on it's storage capacity, boot into my preferred choice and I'm good to go. Ventoy makes it so easy. Support the project folks.

@retroedgetech My wife's mom; same thing. Whenever her machine gets old I just get her a refurb and migrate her /home folder ;-). She doesn't know it, but she's using Arch ;-)

@typomustakes That's bordering on criminal depending on what happens when it comes back positive.

@izder456 I think a lot of people are tempted to think that. When I have that I remind myself that "pride goes before a fall". ;-)

@izder456 @rootbsd Tell him to see his doctor immediately. Your ubuntu is not something to take chances with. ;-)
