  • Soon I am going to sacrifice a Windows 11 installation live. It's going to be narrated in Spanish, but eventually I'll upload it to YouTube and Peer Tube, and the intention is to upload subtitles, too.

    I've been testing the setup today, check it out https://fedi.gvisoc.com/@gabriel/112812775821929920

    Feel free to join! I'll post details here.

    I'll probably begin by doing a live stream on twitch.
    It may just be an opinion, but when an OP asks how to solve or troubleshoot their system with a given distribution, say Ubuntu, telling them to install some other system, say Mint or Arch, is not helpful at all.

    We all like our favourites, but they may not be the cup of tea of anyone else.

    Yup; couldn't agree more. I realise that Mint is the preferred "cup of tea" for many here, but you cannot in all conscience expect everybody to use it.....just because a few think it's the best thing since sliced bread.

    Sure, it makes it easier to proffer advice, but.....where's the fun in that? It becomes predictable, and 'humdrum'.....and I, for one, don't ever want to see Linux become like that.

    I finally went back to Fedora Workstation (from Silverblue) due to some problems with docker (where I went back trying to solve my issues with podman) and then with minikube, that were causing so many friction to consider it a sustainable option. However, if my computer usage was entirely household / domestic, I would use it no doubt.
    Oh, Java doesn't support Wayland natively. Java IDE that are not written in Java, anyone?
    I don't get why someone would get into a thread on a forum to post a bunch of off-topics and then, when called off, say it's a stupid thread. Bananas.

    That was like when you're in a dress-up party and someone interrupts it to tell you the whole story of the Roman Empire when they see you dressed up like a Roman. And when the host tells them, "hey, this is a party and not History college, chill out", then they're like "OH MY GOD I AM LEAVING WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE. STUPID DRESS-UP PARTEH"
    Hey everybody, I'm recommending these forums around, and in the Framework community discourse in particular. Suit up!

    Just had a look at one question in their forums, about Debian and a realtek wi-fi, it has been going for a few months now, [last post yesterday] so far no one has pointed them to the latest Linux drivers on guilt hub

    I didn't come across it so far, but I'll have a look soon.
    I'm going to get a Framework laptop shipped soon! Fedora Silverblue is going to be this time.

    I was thinking of getting one myself, but they didn't have all of the parts available the last time I was on their site (which was maybe 3 months ago). Has that changed?

    I just got one pre-ordered when they did their last event, by end of March. I'm in Batch 1 for the 3rd Gen with Intel 13th. That night / morning they had everything available.

    When I finally have a new job, I'll look into getting one then. The laptop I'm using now is like a beater car. It may not be in the best or newest condition, but it at least works.
    I'm testing Silverblue "my way", a.k.a., "let's use no other thing and let's not look back for 6 months at least"
    I have recovered a Dell Inspiron 13-7378 with Fedora 37. And it feels good.

    Well, for what is worth I am restoring Windows on it now, because I managed to donate it to a person in need that will go back to the workforce using it. Now that feels even better, even though Windows.
    I cannot post threads. I was going to open an offtopic to say that I have Mastodon hosted at home in a Raspberry Pi and it works like a charm.

    What an amazing machine. Flawless experience.

    Change my mind.

    "I cannot post threads."...Why not ?

    Mastodon.....change your mind?...I would not know where to start. it is a step away/forward from twitter (as I understand it).....I have zero experience with either.
    I see twitter as a gargantuan tax write off for its current owner.

    Haha! It was a little outage, I guess.

    The "change my mind" was more on the Raspberry Pi component, mastodon all good.
    This week I moved definitely to mastodon after joining in 2016, leaving twitter for good. Indeed, I run my own instance!

    I have not been into Twits/tweets or any other social media, except Face book, which I hate, but my security blind relatives insist on using to keep in contact, is this one any better security wise?
    By the way, you have been a cobber for a week now, has it sunk in yet?

    Just don't let it become a time vampire and avoid the drama as much as possible. I learned those from experience, which is why I don't use any social media platforms anymore.

    I am quite upset with the last video of Chris Titus Tech. It's basically showing us how to break debian (minute 14:12) by first removing the sources for security updates, and then switching branches (which leads to a frankendebian)

    No, he installed bookworm, and then (i) removed the security sources "just so you don't have duplicated sources [sic]" and then (ii) changed to the sid tree and performed an upgrade over a bookworm install which can break everything (-> frankendebian).

    It's like that race they chase a cheese down a hill.

    Sid's packages are intended to be used for development purposes on a chroot environment, not to be put in front of a final user. We're confusing sid with a rolling release, which is not.

    I find the plasma desktop environment and the programs it include, overwhelming. I mean, it's nice and fast, but in terms of how many options they put in front of you by default and in every single screen and aspect of them, it's just too much, and too much at all times. It's going to take me a while to get used to it.
