Alex, thanks for sharing Webpc with our community, for the generous 15% discount and some free hours for Patrons. Webpc is fantastic and it will be great watching how it continues to evolve!

Thank you for the share :+1:
Will look into it

Thanks for sharing, do they give you a choice of Distros? The one shown in the Demo is kinda Windows-ish.

Hey, currently we only offer Ubuntu 20.04 with xfce4 Gnome environment.

If you have any preferences or suggestions I would love to listen. If you guys want other distros or desktop environments it will not take long to implement.

I know choices are a bit opinionated right now…

So is that what Ubuntu comes with is xfce by Default? The personal Cloud thing might be a way to try different Desktops and Windows managers without screwing up a perfectly good system and not having to mess with Virtual machines (if your computer isn’t that powerful). Do they charge per machine created?

Its a good solution if you want to keep some applications remote. Can be a browser, code editor, discord and so on. Nope we use xfce as its light on the system and doesnt consume too many resources.

Yep we only charge per machine per hour
