One of our current club members asked me about this app a couple months ago.   Here is some updated info on it in case it’s still needed:

The “new” SUSE . . . now the largest independent Linux provider

As RedHat is now officially a part of IBM, this will make SUSE the largest independent Linux OS company . . growing at 15% annually.

They still put out one of the best Linux distros . . . very polished and stable with additional gui tools for managing the desktop.   I think I’ll install it again on my 500 Gig SanDisk portable SSD and demo it at a future meeting.

So, if curious, the big 3 Linux companies world wide are:

RedHat (IBM) (USA)

SUSE (Independent) (Germany)

Ubuntu (Canonical) (UK)

Firefox Send . . . a new large file sharing service from Mozilla

A really nice feature that simplifies sharing of any type of file, especially photos.   Saves space if you’re already using Dropbox, Google Drive or a similar Cloud Storage service.

Files are encrypted and share options can be customized.   Will be trying this and we can test at our next OTC meeting by having someone at the meeting do a demo download.
