@jauntywunderkind420 yeah, i can understand the fatigue from so many connectors over the years, and perhaps some people are cautious of the "universal" promise that hasn't quite been true so far, but dang if usb-c hasn't pulled it off!
i love having my phone, laptop and monitor all using the same small, reversible connector, this is what usb was always meant to be, it's so good!
@aral i need to give your lipstick project a go, i'm using blackbox, which handles switching, but some of the colours are janky
(also, i'd like bpytop to also switch themes)
@noracodes that looks like a fun setup
are you using the few xaoc modules because you couldn't find anything in the mutable line-up that fit your needs?
i also wonder what it's like going for (almost) single constructor systems. i assume it makes it much easier to make module choices, and perhaps there are some nice synergies that come from a shared design philosophy
@cyberspice i'm just a dude, and i have other things on my plate
i also never said that the current form of linux should go away
@aral i also agree that linux needs to realise that mainframe multi-user models are next to irrelevant on the desktop, and that if we can find more appropriate models, it'll greatly help make desktop linux much better
@aral oh that's interesting!
so this basically lets you install and run cli apps as cargo crates the same way you'd run flatpak apps?
this laptop is called "fearless"
the background is a baby me scared out of my mind on a friend's dirtbike
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!
@nihilazo atom sort of filled that niche for me
it's the same engine as vs code, but it's a lot more bare bones. it has extensions to manage most of the languages you might need to use it with
food (vegan +)
sometimes people tell me about the health benefits of a vegan diet, and like... that's cool, but i don't care about that for a second... i just want to stuff my face in a more ethical and ecological way if at all possible
i've started riding a bike to work, so that's nice
