Still have scars from that in 2004.

Although in some ways it was worse back then due to the nature of CPUs/RAM/disks of the time. As long as one can work out UEFI/boot loader and knows about how to setup kernel/tools and configure security it is easier now.
But I kind of agree there is not always a point in source based distros unless you have reasons.

I mean I didn't know you could build it like that! Thankyou night.fox for showing me this! This was the most difficult and interesting linux install ever for me.
It's touted as the linux you build. And you do, from scratch. Think Freebsd, and then break it down even more. I learned more about linux in the last 4 days
than the last 3 years. You have to build, install, and configure every part of it. Even virtualbox additions require manual intervention, creating scripts ect.
I almost wanted to hate it, but in the end it's a gas to build, you learn a lot, and when you have a fully functional desktop running, it's very rewarding.
Mines not as pretty as yours, but I like it just as much!

great. Well its not about having who has pretty DE or not. Its about the happines and building and customizing something that makes you happy.

My next project is gentoo. Once next LTS kernel release, I will build that since what I need is atleast 5.11 kernel cause there is a patch on that kernel that my laptop benefits. For now Im gonna enjoy Arch. I distro hop for like 2 weeks but I settled with arch as it is very configurable and I just install apps I needed

Such total class. Everyone take note of how night.fox responds in here.

Something I just have to say.... everytime a windows user switches to linux... an angel gets their wings. And a person gets their soul back!

just playing around with LXQT. It looks neat but not so customizable. But I would choose this over XFCE

I need to give 'new' Gnome another chance. I wasn't a fan when the big change happened. After Gnome 3 and Ubuntu's Unity desktop, which were both about 10 years ago - yikes, I stuck to Gnome 2 based DE's.

Thanks for posting that.

Still don't understand the mac way of doing it. It's just more mac. KDE does it right. But what ever floats your boat.

tried to play around with gnome 40 before. Good thing about Gnome 40 is that seems wayland works alot better in Gnome than any other DE.

Difference or improvement over the past gnome is I honestly cant tell. Im not really a fan of the tablet type app launcher.

But if youre a gnome fan, i think you will like the new 40. Heard alot of good things from gnome users

It is interesting the focus more on a mobile friendly DE for linux. I really only want a bit better integration with Wayland.

Well, looks like Ubuntu Impish, or 21.10, will ship with the 5.13 kernel. Mine just updated itself from 5.11 to 5.13.
It's also running plasma 5.22, but that's been backported to 21.04 as well:

Here's 21.04 with the plasma backport to 5.22. Also just finished cracking a rar hash using gpu assist with hashcat.... and yes it's legal....

Crack.... legal? Because most people don't realize you have to test security to make sure it works. They also see crack, and think, that can't be legal.
Most people don't realize this goes on all the time. And linux is the best to test it under. I finally know how, but I'm still a
noob. Much more fun will come for me!!

I recently dropped the dual boot with Windows 10 I've had since Ubuntu 16.04 and moved my whole system over to Debian 11.

Runs like a dream...:).

Ditched Windows a week ago and went to Kubuntu, then made the move to Arch on EndeavourOS. Windows partition wiped. Absolutely in love. Every game works & the alternatives for some of my programs are fantastic, plus there's functionality (like explorer tabs & split view -- come on Microsoft.) that was not present in Windows.

Microsoft will not be seeing me utilizing their OS again.



It feels good to be part of the 1%.

(did I mention every game runs faster, especially Minecraft's new 1.18 snapshots... went from 20 FPS on Windows to 800 in here. That's well over 5000% increase.)

Yeah...Debian 11 ran like a dream alright. Until I started loading my newer titles. It seemed to handle the usuals(Skyrim, Oblivion, FO3, and FO:NV) just fine, but when I started going Fallout 4 and newer? Not so much. I've been wanting to get back to Chernobylite and Terminator:Resistance and that is where everything quickly turned into a story filled with graphical glitches, intermittent slowdowns, and mandatory re-installs. I went at it hard...no luck on either title.

As the linux veterans know...just par for the course. If one doesn't work, move to the next one on the list. Although, I'm not the distro-hopping type. I prefer to find something that "Just Works"(insert Todd Howard Flashback here) and stick with it. Personally, I thought I had found that in Debian. The last thing I wanted to do is go back and start testing more distros, I've already tested 26. Just glad I took notes! When I went and thumbed through the pages...one name kept coming up that just seemed more stable than the others from the get go. Solus.

I was actually going to transfer over to Solus back in 2017 when their lead dev(Ikey Dougherty) up and left. I had my concerns with the way it was handled...so I went with Ubuntu instead.

Although, my decision might have been a little too quick and premature, it appears as though Solus has been left in some pretty capable hands(Josh Strobl). If I had to describe Solus in three words or less? "Smooth as butter" would be the response. Haven't had a single hitch since the initial install. In fact...when you see the picture below. It has the feel of Windows 7, but with a few modern twists added in for good measure. I also liked the fact I could easily connect to my Smartphone(Moto G7) through using open source software on F-Droid. I de-Googled my phone from the get-go and I've never had access to Google's play store. No loss...;).

Here is the Solus KDE Plasma desktop. Solus is bar none the most "responsive" desktop out of the 26 I tested.

Solus Plasma Desktop Screenshot - September 10, 2021.jpg

If I had to rate the 26 different desktops tested through a "full install", not a LIVE install using a USB flash drive or Virtual Machine, but a complete full install. I would have to rate Solus Mate as number one for "out of the box" stability. Followed closely by Zorin OS, and Mint as third. Opensuse(KDE, Plasma) fourth, and Fedora(Gnome) fifth. The largest surprise out of all the distros? Was Garuda Linux and Feren OS. I wasn't expecting much from either one of these...and boy was I wrong. I'm keeping my eyes on Feren OS...I like what I see there. Garuda? Might be more for the younger crowd. :).

From this day forward...I'll be recommending Zorin OS 16 Core over Mint and Ubuntu for new users.

Best Regards,

Liquid Cool

P.S. This is how I personally set up my own system for gaming. The latest AMD/Vulkan drivers were preinstalled. So, all I had to do on a fresh install was to do all of the system updates, restart...then run "sudo eopkg install steam" at the command line. Let it install....then install Lutris(if you're going to...) from the Software Center and lastly, back at the command line..."sudo eopkg install wine wine-devel wine-32bit winetricks". After the last installation completes...restart...and you're done. If you're completely new to linux and not comfortable doing anything with the command line you can also install everything through the Software Center. In fact...with Solus, you can completely avoid the command line if you wish to do so. Best of luck.
