Public Service Announcement: If you want to help push the needle away from centralized corporations telling you what to do, snooping on you, and making you the product, get your local geek to install Linux.

How I did it:…
Wait, isn't Linux too hard?

No, you're thinking it's still 2005. The most polished and easy-to-use of Linux distros are fully modern, easy-to-use, and accessible to non-geeks.

Isn't there still a learning curve? Yes, but it's really easy to use, and new stuff is not that bad.
The best first distros to try (but still powerful) are:
Biggest community/best supported/still easy-to-use: Ubuntu
Best UX for users coming from Windows: Zorin
...from Mac: Elementary
Nice and fast: Mint
Ubuntu apps will work on all of these.

Seen this #Ubuntu blueprint being shared around the internet. It's not official, not a thing we're doing. Just because someone made a blueprint, doesn't make it fact.…
I'm not going to link to the youtube video with breathless shouting that we're doing this in 19.04 and the world is falling apart. We're not, it's not. The text in that blueprint is just the opinion of a guy on the internet. Not a statement of intent or plan.
Anyone with a launchpad account can create blueprints, it's a historical part of the openness of the #Ubuntu community. Anyone can make suggestions on how to change or improve Ubuntu. We can discuss and work on those things, park them, improve them or reject them.

O início da história de Manoel não tem data registrada, ele nasceu no Congo mas foi escravizado para viver na cidade que recebeu o título de maior produtora de café do mundo, Vassouras no RJ. Seu dono era um oficial militar Manuel Francisco Xavier.
Manoel tinha um ofício elevado como escravo, era ferreiro. Naquela época criou-se em vassouras uma sociedade para ensinar essa habilidade a alguns escravos. Em algumas sociedades africanas era um trabalho destinado aos reis e outros nobres.

For, err, no apparent reason, trying to customize a #Kubuntu (Bionic) Desktop #LiveCD in order to get it to work on an #Intel #NUC8i7HNK (just like that #Fedora Rawhide pendant which simply works OOTB) for a couple of days now suddenly reminded me of this:
For the record: I'm not (primarily) blaming the hardware here…
Once you find the required parameters for use with "mkisofs" (which are not mentioned in the document you likely refer to first, namely…), you're able to re-image an #Ubuntu/#Kubuntu daily #LiveCD with #UEFI support:
