@gp i was on Arch, but it became boring and wanted distros that have Enterprise counterparts. So i went with opensuse tumbleweed, but the default install is very "complete" and sometimes packages take their time (firefox once took nearly 2 weeks). Then i went to fedora where i currently am. I don't know if i keep fedora. Too soon for that.
But i have thought about giving opensuse tw another run. It is a little bit a love/hate thing. Suse 7.0 was my first distro so it has a place in my head.
- soon arch
do you have multiple choice activated?
@firstname.lastname@example.org i know pleroma and misskey can do that, no idea if mastodon is capable of that. anyway you got my list of distros that i run
@gp I don't currently use Linux, but when I do it's usually Mint for the sake of ease.
Great device driver support, great codec support, a lot more things "just work" with Mint, which I appreciate.
I get that the trade off is not all the content is open source but still free as in beer which works for a great many use-cases.
@gp Sorry, but many of us are not on Mastodon! This network is called the #Fediverse an it is as diverse as the hole world of Linux, which has nothing to do with those random 4 Distros you gave us to chosse here. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Linux_distributions
@wolf i tried to pick the most widely used, sorry about fediverse, but i feel like mastodon citizen 😀
@gp My preferred GNU/Linux distribution for the moment is Ubuntu. There are other free operating systems to consider as well; I'm booted into OpenBSD as I'm writing this.
@gp no love in this post or thread for Solus. It’s pretty cool how well optimized something can be when you start from the ground up on the Linux Kernel in 2015
@gp voted for Debian - but that's not 100% correct anymore 😉
WRT use case I prefer VoidLinux (Workstation/Laptop), Alpine (Servers), Devuan (Debian without systemd - Laptop/Servers) - in this order.
OK, there ARE some CentOS/Rocky/Alma and SUSE-VMs somewhere... 🙈
