Googleable must be my favourite new term. Not because I would ever use Google in my searches but just because it sounds funny when you speak it. Try it with me:

“Googlabble!” 🙂

Anyhoo, how did I get to this observation? I heard the presenter, Kevin Burkeland, use the term in this very interesting widdeoh, which is more like a podcast, an audio file:

I recommend everybody taking the 47 minutes and watch listen to this presentation. It’s worth your time, particularly when you’re a fukn clueless n00b. =^.^= I liked this presentation because the guy’s opinion is similar to mine in many points. Particularly he likes Linux Mint for First-timers. Good boy, good call. 🙂

And it needs to be said, for a presentation held at LinuxFest Northwest 2017 it’s remarkably ungeeky and entertaining. No dry code chewing here but personal opinion and smalltalk about different distros of Linux, with a lot of info maybe usable by newbs.
