@vital876 no worries! I happened to already know this, but I'm sure someone else can learn something when they scroll through.
@Vierkantor My first operating system was Windows Vista on a 2005(?) Dell desktop computer.
The only time I would use a Mac is when I would go to one of the libraries me and my Mom used to go to. I would spend a lot of time on Google Earth on that computer.
A year ago, I got a Macbook as my first laptop that was for me (not a family computer). I've been learning the differences between Windows and macOS for a while now. They're similar in some ways, but completely different in others.
Mastodon is a server for a federated social network: everyone can run a server if they want to, including me. So this is a Mastodon server for me (Vierkantor) and my friends.
