    Best video ever. This guy is awesome and prescious and y'all should give him a job for a week or so, strictly too add to the already great comedic relief. Or me. I'd work for y'all and have a lot of experience doing my own computer building and repair 🙂.. anyway, this is so cool that y'all do this with and for people. I really appreciate your community and everything ya do Linus and LinusTech! Y'all are amazing ❤️
