A thought about video platforms

With the adpocalypse, channel take downs and the expected comment section crackdowns, I’m experimenting with other video platforms.

Once inside it looked like the computer section of a big electronics retailer complete with neon signs, racks of liquid cooled processors, motherboards, and rows of laptops, tablets, and the latest monitors. Then I turned around and saw something you don’t see at most computer retailers, cows being entertained by shoppers. Now if they only new more about Linux… Onno_Vocks_100_0576
