#linux 13 hashtags

@M0CUV to get back on topic: kudos for considering #FOSS software stacks. #Linux Mint is a great choice! Helix replaced neovim completely for me, but that probably comes down entirely to your workflow...

Playing with #Wayfire for the past few days brought back a lot of memories about distro-hopping during the past 11 years of using #Linux.

Although in the meantime I'm not playing with my system(s) so often anymore and pretty much settled on #Debian with the #GNOME desktop (both at work and at home), It is fun to tinker with a minimal compositor like Wayfire again. I'll keep it on my private laptop for a while :) #Wayland

Image description 1: A screenshot of a minimal wayfire desktop with a topbar showing some system information like cpu and memory usage, wifi connection, etc. using the dracula colour palette. A menu is open in the center of the desktop, showing a few installed applications.
Image description 2: Wayfire's virtual desktop overview showing 6 virtual desktops in 2 rows. On the first desktop in the upper left, one can see a browser window drafting this very post. On the fifth desktop in the lower center is a terminal window showing the cava music visualiser in pink on a black background, which is very similar to the desktops background image.

#Linux users, particularly #Debian & #Ubuntu: are you going to switch to #Mozilla's own #Firefox repository? Are you already using their snap or flatpak release? Or are you sticking to the binaries provided by your distro's maintainers?

Übrigens, WOWTV funktioniert trotz neuem webplayer leider nicht unter #Linux, selbst mit Windows oder MacOS useragent.

Dann gibt es wohl weiterhin leider kein #GoT 🫠

My gym's water dispenser runs #Linux 👍 The #KDE version is 4.x being EOL since 2014 (?) or so 👎, indicating that this machine hasn't been updated IN A WHILE...

What's the current trend in #immutable #Linux desktops? I've been following developments of #Fedora silverblue and #OpenSuse MicroOS, bit haven't found an afwul lot of user experiences for day-to-day desktop usage. Anyone out there with insights or recommendations?

How come that after all these decades, innovations and fancy solutions, the most accessible and most reliable way to do #backups is freaking zip/tar with low compression onto an external network drive... #linux

Has anyone experience with #S3 object storage? IONOS has a relatively cheap offer and I am thinking about using it as my main file storage on my #VPS (mostly music). #selfhosted #opensource #linux
