Working From Home with LInux During COVID-19
« on: March 15, 2020, 12:07:28 am »
So I actually worked from home for a few hours today and expect to be doing more while COVID-19 is a serious issue here in Los Angeles county. There's a ton of remote work posts on the web but nothing about Linux so I wrote a thing.

Although I'm a die hard Peppermint user I opted to change up my work workflows in Lubuntu thus keeping it visually and physcially different from personal and leisure activities.

Its getting crazy. A friend of mine was abruptly laid off after the MLB and NHL seasons were cancelled. The restaurant she works at relies heavily on stadium traffic.

That is a very good idea to have 2 different systems to separate work from play.  Trains your mind, kind of like a service dog.  While his vest is on he's at work, ever diligent.  With it off he can relax and play.
