Not sure how I should feel about Microsoft's .NET MAUI UI project.
Linux support is entirely supported by the community with no involvement by Microsoft .
It's coming out in November 2021 as a replacement to Xamarin.Forms with the launch of .NET 6 .
Officially supported platforms are Windows, Mac, IOS, and Android. Unofficially supported platforms are Linux and Tizen.
Visual Basic is being killed off of course with C# and F# being the only languages supported at launch.
Feels very much like this is too little too late. Gotta be honest, this is what .NET Core 3.0 should have been. Instead we'll have .NET 5 launching in late 2020 and .NET 6 with Microsoft MAUI in late 2021.
This is very much a reactionary move as Microsoft has noticed that C# and .NET are doing worse than they've done in recent memory and they're trying to stop C# develooers bleeding into C++ and other languages.

Yay. Some court somewhere has decided that you can't lock people up and send people to Prison for violating a TOS.
There's hope for humanity yet.

Be Boris Johnson... Stay at home.
And cut 20,000 police over the past few years.
And make European doctors and nurses feel so unwelcome that they all quit.
And decide that letting half of your boomer voter base die is okay.
And spend £500bn on a socialism budget.
And spend £200bn on a coup to leave the World’s most powerful trading bloc

Most of my publicly-known projects (like the ones you see in my status updates) start out as quietly-researched initiatives, that can go on for months (even up to a year) before being posted to public sites (like this one). In this time, over half of the ideas I come up with tend to die off, for a variety of reasons. Those ideas are ones that I tend to keep to myself, because I see no need for anyone else to have access to them most of the time. I do revisit some of them from time to time, to see if they have any purpose in future pursuits. But they tend to stay pretty dead. This one, however, is an exception to me. While I'm pretty sure that it's gonna stay undone if I hold onto it, I have decided to post it here, in case anyone else was interested in seeing what I would like to have in a Linux-from-Scratch distro. I was originally going to go through this guide to build it (since it is a good tutorial from what I've seen):
http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/view/stable/ But I have found that my priorities are needed (and wanted) elsewhere. As such, I leave this small snippet of my senseless (and possibly even illogical) mind here - for you all to see. To keeping yet another idea from drowning in the dark abyss...
see attached document
Happy hunting! Don't use this as a guide/basis for anything important - I beg of you (otherwise, the risk and liability is all yours). If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Hello Performance .
Now I really have a fast car. Dw I changed the colour from Orange to Sea Green and fully upgraded it.
We did a drag race at the LS airport and it beat out @Silentprototipe’s Raiden (Model S knockoff) which is impressive considering not much else can beat the acceleration of a Raiden let alone match it.
As we were saying the only real problem with the cyclone is it’s a 2 door so you can’t take the guys with you in it, which is where Raiden is superior cos it’s a 4 door.

Cheap upgrade (kind of upgrade anyway).
Ryzen 1700 to 2600X for main PC £120 approx
Buy an Asus x370-pro, approx £80 for my ESXi build, and add the 1700 from above upgrade.
All other parts needed I already own. Except maybe more storage needed for the ESXi build depending ultimately on what I decide to run on it.
Will definitely be running pfsense on it. And hosting a NAS server VM for outside access only, not my entire library that's on my main NAS. That's the plan so far anyway.

Okay - just got my hands on a network-unlocked LG v20. Time to get hacky-hacky :3 First, Imma nuke it and throw on the latest TWRP for it. Then, it's either AOSP, AOSP Ex., or LineageOS. Shooting for either Android 8 or 9 (since it appears that LG took their sweet time pushing updates) in this case, so no Android 10 in this case. Definitely looking to ditch the Play Store if possible, but I do use some apps that require it for purchase verification. Might have to leave a minimal version of it on the system, along with 2-3 other app stores of my choice. Will probably be rooting it, since some of my preferred apps and functionalities require root. Definitely have more room for apps than the Nexus 7 2013, so might have more included apps With that, here's the plan so far...
OEM Unlock the bootloader (wipes the phone) Flash the ROM Flash the SU package and BusyBox Add my preferred ROM apps (apps that should remain after a reset) Pickin app stores and user apps
Included Apps will probably include the following:
Google Cloud Print Google's killing this service Google Play Services + Services for Instant Apps Google Play Books Android System WebView Google Drive Google Chrome Dev Google Assistant Google In Apps Accessibility Suite Google Calculator Google Camera Google Lens Google Clock Android Keyboard (AOSP) SUX Google Contacts + Contacts Sync GMail Google Now Launcher FM Radio (AOSP/ROM) Gallery (AOSP/ROM) Quick Remote (ROM) Google Hangouts + Voice (screw Duo) Hangouts Dialer Aurora Store AppBrain App Market Terminal Emulator Google Earth ES File Explorer Pro Voice Access YouTube SuperSU Xposed Installer Hacker's Keyboard + English completion dictionary
