It is difficult to find a trackball and Japanese keyboard that suits me.

@kaspar It is an impossible environment for me! I installed Zorin OS because I didn't want to spend money to buy a new PC. :joy:

@pazoff If all networks eventually required this kit to be the norm then the digital divide would be greater than it is now.
It would also go against the GNU/LInux ethos of "breathing new life into old machines", and thereby reducing e-waste.

I used to use these large trackballs not too long ago. However, rather than looking for one that would fit my hand size, I came up with a way to combine a small one with a wrist rest.


KIOXIA TransMemory U301
I like this not only for its looks, but also for its simplicity in function. I have two of these, one is for data backup and is always connected to my PC. The other is a bootable drive.

I have some Toshiba pen drives that look identical to that KIOXIA one. :thinking:
Who copied who?

Me toooo....

@zabadabadoo Toshiba was forced to sell its semiconductor memory business after heavy losses in its nuclear power-related business. The company established as a result is Kioxia.

I had an old laptop at home that I was having trouble getting rid of, so I installed Zorin OS to try it out. To my surprise, Core worked without any problem. This machine is a 2010 model, but the specs were high for that time, so I guess it worked.

All I have is a plain laptop with a white desk and some RGB accessories.

@Turtle11 Not needing peripherals or a large desk is an advantage of laptops.

I don't like to install a graphics card in Mini-ITX because of the noticeable performance disadvantage in terms of volume ratio compared to iGPUs. ASRock's DeskMeet is more than four times volume of DeskMini, which is not attractive to me.

Small cabinet have a poor cooling fan temperature is high.

@Storm That cat might be after the mouse.

My phone case broke, but it is difficult to get cases for older models, so I decided to take the plunge and not use a case. If the device broke because of that, I didn't mind replacing it. I prefer a display of about 6 inches, and since my hands are not large, I find it much easier to use without a case.
