This is the first time that I signed on to this forum. It's good to be here!
I have been into computers since the 1980s beginning with the Commodore 64,
and later, the IBM XT with Windows 1.0 and OS/2. Then, in the early 1990s, I
got involved with a Linux group at a local college. Though I knew much less
than my fellow members at the Linux SIG (Special Interest Group), I started
an off-campus extension of that SIG with those members to spend more time
learning about what I later learned was actually GNu/Linux. Although, I
mostly used MS Windows because it had the programs I could easily use to
publish newsletters, etc, I began to buy books like Yggdrasil, Running Linux
by Matt Welsh, and a number of others to learn more. Over the years, I tried
dozens of GNu/Linux distros via CD like Redhat. At my local SIG, the project
leader in the early 1990s introduced me to Debian, which he began to help out
with. Later on, I began to use various Ubuntus, a derivative of Debian, which
I also used.
Being interested in security, privacy, and freedom, which most people really
do not seem to be interested in, no matter what they might say, I became
interested in "free" software, and I found that of all the "free" software
that I could find listed on Distrowatch years ago, I preferred Trisquel.
Since I do not like Gnome3, I won't use PureOS, a derivative of Trisquel.
At the moment, I'm using a derivative of Devuan, an offshoot of Debian,
because it does not employ "systemd," but because Star, that derivative that
I use, uses the blob-infested Linux kernel, and not the "free" version, and
it is the easiest for me to use, I decided to go back to Trisquel.
Right off the bat, I have several questions. With Star, I have been using
Keepassxc, a more up to date version of Keepassx, and I noticed that your
repository does not carry it. Do you plan to, or is there something wrong
with it in some way? Also, I use VeraCrypt and sometimes, ZuluCrypt, and I
noticed that you do not carry either one in your repository. Are they both
I am not a coder of programs though I did give early Basic a try, and I have
created several websites using HTML and CSS along with JS plugins for many
years. I would appreciate it if you could answer my few questions.
Keep up the great work!
