i have a new computer arriving soon, and will be using linux on it (probably arch)
i've not used linux on the (lap|desk)top since uni, anyone got any tip and tricks for setting things up nice in 2022?

i want a gui, have used tiling wms in the past and wouldn't mind doing that again, but i'm open to all recommendations

i don't know if i forgot how much of a hassle arch linux was on desktops or if i simply had way more patience for linux tweaking ten years ago, but i've bailed and switched to fedora instead

yeah, i'm really enjoying fedora silverblue

it was a little awkward at first trying to understand how to tweak an "immutable" operating system, but really with flatpaks and distrobox, it works really well

it's nice to have a system that is hard to break, and easy to roll back, and having separate containers for different versions of compilers and stuff makes development so much easier!

this laptop is called "fearless"
the background is a baby me scared out of my mind on a friend's dirtbike
