I'm sorry to anger you, it is entirely my fault; my family didn't
 like it when I introduced them to linux, and I'm too scared to
dualboot on the family
PC, in case I mess it up and the windows installation is nuked.

PS: it seems every time I reply, it makes a new email thread; am I doing
 something wrong? Please do help me, I'm new to mailing lists.

I'm missing out on so much, being stuck on windows and being unable
to switch to linux ༎ຶ‿༎ຶ

I may not be able to contribute anything meaningful to this conversation
 (because I'm just now learning how to code, and because I'm on windows
which means my experience doesn't match up with people
 who I could collaborate with), but I will say that I really like it
 when people come together and make something good like this.

I agree a ton with the first two points!

As for the third point, i have a doubt:

I was thinking about how this could be hypothetically done (I don't
actually know how to code yet, I have just started learning), and I

I'm not really good at understanding anything related to code since i'm
just turning 18 and got introduced to computers very late in my life,
but in the small amount of time I've spent with them, I've played
around a lot with html and css (not much javascript, it feels so hard
to understand but I'm working on it because that's what the modern web
requires); and the world of making webpages has fascinated me a lot.
But having a comparatively weak system makes it difficult to run modern
 browsers like the ones based on chromium and on firefox. Now don't get
 me wrong, I like shiny UI and interactivity as much as the next
person, but it's not much use to me if I can't run it without pulling
my hair out. The simplicity of your blog and of sourcehut's design is
what got me following you in the first place, and netsurf fits my idea
of a web browser perfectly, although it does lack a few features still
like css animations (which I tend to use a lot to try to make my
