Fedora 31 will have some nice improvements for people that are weary of the quite slow dnf/rpm performance, everything will be compressed with zstd level 19 now, rather than xz, resulting in better compression level (less to download) and huuuuuge decompression speed
Like a 1,6GB archive is decompressed in 1m38s with XZ, and in 7,7s (!!!) with zstd lvl 19
Also RPM 4.5 give some tiny improvements but not that huge ofc
The Winamp Portable Player!

There is no century number 0, you go from -1 century to 1 century. If you disagree with this, please write your complaint to: Pope, Cathedral Saint-Peter of Roma, Vatican."
For those who haven't heard of en_DK before, it's the "European English" (for want of a better description) locale.
It uses Commonwealth English (en_GB) for strings and ISO-14651-1 for collates.
Dates are in YYYY-MM-DD, time is in 24h HH:MM format, Monday is the first day of the week, comma is the decimal separator, currency is euro and standard paper size is A4.
@StephanieRose my dad tried this once but he mistook the built-up dust for a worn out felt pad. He had scraped it clean and was gluing a new piece of felt to the roller when my brother came in and asked what the hell he was doing. My family ever since refers to attempting computer maintenance when you don't know what you're doing as "re-felting the mouse"
