Ok, I have to admit it
Once you get an actually good Linux distro, you fall in love

Fuck my whole legacy just gone, disappeared

    Which distro? (Genuinely want to know: building new Linux box likely next week.)

    @halfflat pure arch, a bitch to set up but is the best Linux experience I had ever

    TFW most of your hardware is available for you to actually use 😎

    Debian had been my favorite for a long time. Nothing unnecessary, speedy, stable as hell, super stable overclock (5.2 on a dated cpu; read as 5.9), support for most software, good customizability, kde out of the box, etc. It made me happy.

    Debian 10 seems like a train wreck, though. Devuan (the non-systemd fork) has been giving me some problems, too. But to be honest I’ve only had like half an hour to spend with it since I managed to get WiFi working. And all of that was to get vim installed 😅. Yeah, the default repos don’t have anything useful. I still haven’t copied my backup data over, so still no password manager, projects, music, anything. I do have vim again, at least!

    Anyway, I’m probably going with Arch once I have some time again.

    I hope that’s soon.
    I desperately need to spend time away from work.

    @Root if vim is the first thing you want to install, and you want to go to arch, then it’s just a small step to ditch kde and get a tiling window manager
    👍🏽

    @dder Ditch KDE? Blasphemy!

    I love my overlapping windows, thanks.

    Why? Docs behind the editor. Don’t even have to turn my head.

    @Root you can have the same in i3 as well, just saying, but as that’s no the primary use case you might be better off using whatever fits you 😎

    @dder Overlapping windows in a tiling window manager? Blasphemy!
  • 2
    True words.
    Since i started with Ubuntu MATE, i fell in Love with it and probably won't switch to a different one (or back to W10 for that matter). I did try out a few distros though..

    @shakur anything else after arch ?
    Double blasphemy!

    @Root it ain’t good, but that’s because of the overlapping part, not because of the timing wm part.
    So yes, Blasphemy!

    Debian here.

    @Linux Which?

    @Root damn, I love KDE.

    It was probably KDE that kept me in the linux world to begin with. The user experience and customizability is absolutely stunning.

    @dder
    I tried i3, I didn't really like it. I set up my buntu/kde to open new terminals in a grid of 2x2 and That's all I ever need really, worst case I do some manual adjustments.

    Don't get me wrong, I love the concept of i3, but it has a learning curve that Im not willing to scale for a damn window manager

    @Hazarth sure all good, I was willing to take it and still learning, but i feel like it increased my productivity :)

    I have never had a more stable system than with Arch.. Everything is in my control, nothing hidden behind any of Canonical's bullshit, properly backwards incompatible to reduce complexity, no bloatware, etc etc. And installing it might seem difficult but I learnt so much by doing so

    @Root

    Testing ofcourse

    @Linux Debian 10?
    I have had endless problems with it.

    @Root

    Testing,
    I have way less problems with it than other distros :)

    Have to run W10 at work. Found quake alternative, run wsl2, xming. I think I'll manage as most gnu tools are now working ok.

    @halfflat so, what did you build? I would give popOs a try if I had to build a new one
  • 0
    @rooter Still haven't got to it! Just being slack...

    @dder Really? Normally i3 is only tiling compared to AwesomeWM and other dynamic WM which work in tiling and floating mode.
