Linux mint cinnamon is simple.
I only use my computer an hour a day. I was sick of windonts spyware but didnt feel like learning a new environment / workflow. Cinnamon feels like windows and doesn't have spyware. One day i got a productivity boost, corebooted my motherboard, installed linux mint cinnamon, and replaced firefox with librewolf. Then I installed LineageOS on my Xperia and degoogled it. Then I ordered a raspberry pi and setup a pihole on my network. I use my computer to write emails, lookup recipes, or watch the occasional youtube video on invidious for at most an hour a day. I update my computer once a year at most.

Do you follow me here. I felt like having privacy on my tech and blocking the bullshit of the internet but I'm not a permavirgin like you so I pick the easy methods of doing this. Pihole, Linux Mint, LineageOS, etc. They all took me mere minutes to setup and are comfy and simplistic. If you have time for anything more than this, you are using your technology for too long. Go talk to a bar with your friends like I do most nights, go on a hike maybe.

Having time for anything more than Mint or Ubuntu or Fedora is just. Foolish, really. Even Manjaro, Manjaro is fine too.

The rolling release model is fundamentally at odds with stability. If you want any semblance of it, rolling release is better avoided.

People who claim that rolling release distributions are "stable" deliberately distort the concept of stability to mean whatever autistic concept they want.

Rolling release doesn't matter if you run pacman -Syu only once after installing Arch. The rest of its lifetime, you can omit the u and live a happy life. It will only update if you really have to and most of the time you don't. The only thing that breaks often are kernel, xorg and glib and again, doesn't break if you doesn't update them.

Arch doesn't support partial upgrades, so if you, for example, need to install a new application you need to upgrade everything lest it breaks compatibility with other seemingly unrelated programs. I actually had to rebuild a package from AUR because its dependencies got upgraded and couldn't find the shared libraries it needed.

I had more fun using Gentoo and learning about compilation frameworks and such. Installing Gentoo is actually somewhat easy if you just use a live desktop CD and just 'chroot' into the stage 1 install and use gparted to setup the drive partitions.

I'm glad I went with Fedora for a distro I don't need to constantly worry about.

Debian and Void Linux are the most far left distros. You would put those two in the tranny section. Arch abstains from any politics at the official level. It's position makes no sense. It would be better suited for the standard wojak, brainlet.

I've never had issues with pacman breaking or "wiping" configs on my previous machine, when I did use Arch. That was for about 3 years. I did my work fine on that laptop.

Did you update daily? That's simply incredible to me. I had multiple arch and arch distros on multiple computers after the course of a few months eventually return 'Kernel panic- not syncing: Attempted to kill init!'

I then switched to Gentoo and actually enjoyed learning about how emerge and cflags worked for compilation of packages from source. Arch aur is really cool but the weirdness that pacman default packages have sometimes leaves dependencies out if you don't update very often.

I want to use gentoo but I always get stuck in a USE flag loop with I think it's freetype and some other package. Also compiling takes forever on my T420. How do I get better at gentoo?

The asi*n girl is literally wearing a fake face and when removed looks horrific, and terrifying.
The white girl has been on zogfeed her entire life which has caused her to age and develop like shit, people didn't used to look like this. She also looks to be at some kind of event and is probably physically stressed out or exhausted. I also can't tell if the red eyes are photoshopped or not because I don't know who would do that on purpose.

Maybe they are, but it would be news to me. Last I heard they didn't have the development resources to implement it which means it's in an EoL stage.

I find it hilarious that my very first experience with linux was gentoo, seriously when i was like 15 or some shit before 4chan was around. Spent a couple days figuring it out. Went something like gentoo,"debian,mint,fedora,ubuntu,suse",gentoo,debian,popOS, and parrot.

You haven't use arch in recent years, have you?

Probably. I'm never entirely sure what I'm doing when I set it up. I've tried following the wiki but when I get around to trying to figure out what to do for my needs I just feel like a brainlet

It must be possible to make it work but Arch works absolutely like crap with Nvidia. I did want to use Arch, I really did. I wanted the WM experience, but holy shit was it frustrating. nouveau just doesn't fucking work.
And sound was imposible to get right, too. So what did I do? I went to Ubuntu with GNOME. It's infuriating that I'm being forced to use GNU bloatware.
Why gnome

>xfce I actually like, but was paranoid with Ubuntu possibly breaking something. Also spent precious time setting Gnome to be usable, and I'm lazy. Next time
>I'm retarded and couldn't get i3wm working.
>sway forces you to use nouveau. Firefox loves crashing nouveau, and I need it

Sound was a bitch, but I got it working. After you do a bunch of tweaks it becomes a somewhat decent system. It's not perfect and it's so unreliable and systemd is abhorrent horrorware. But I got work to do, why haven't you open source devs made an usable system?

Graphene doesnt run on my Xperia. Its a google pixel only OS. Degoogled LineageOS is just as private as GrapheneOS, but a lot less secure however. It isnt hard to degoogled Lineage either, it takes five minutes.

>Degoogled LineageOS is just as private as GrapheneOS
Umm yeah.
>but a lot less secure however. It isnt hard to degoogled Lineage either
True. GrapheneOS on the 4a is really nice. My next phone will be the pineohone pro 100%.
>>
>>84470663
I dont really need security per say, I dont do anything ony phone except text family and IRL friends on SMS and /g/ frens on Element, watch YT via Newpipe, and browse the web with Bromite (only sites I trust).
As long as my OS doesnt spy on me like stock Android does, I am fine with it. Degoogled LineageOS is perfectly private. Doesnt make a single unsolicited request. So I am fine with it, since its the only privacy respecting Android ROM that runs on Xperias anyway.

The next time I need a phone I do plan to go with Pixel + Graphene however, because might as well while I have the option to shop. I won't need a new phone for a while though. Mine still performs fine.

doesn't debian have really outdated packages. why would you use it for anything but a server. if you use unstable then you have other problems. its just not meant for desktops
>>
>>84464124
Currently using live boot of Zorin. Looks and feels really good. Definitely a recommend for someone looking for a stable desktop that gives them basic tools out of the box and is familiar enough to be easy to navigate without any real learning.

It comes degoogled, you have to google it on purpose.

Everytime I see this picture it hurts because it's so true. Yup, been using linux for over a decade. Years of arch and gentoo only to end up using a very vanilla ubuntu.

>In the interview Kroah-Hartman talks about downsides of living in the Hague. "My son's school actually mandates that they all have MacBooks. So he has a MacBook, my wife has a MacBook, and that's about it." But of course, Kroah-Hartman himself is always using Linux.

>So what distro does he use? "I don't use openSUSE any more, I use Arch. And my build system I think is actually running Fedora. I have a number of virtual machines still running Gentoo, Dubya, and Fedora to do some testing on some userspace tools. But yeah, all my laptops and everything is switched over to Arch these days... I have a Chromebook that I play around with, and you can run Linux applications, and you can of course SSH into anything..."

>Why Arch? "At the moment it had something that I needed. I don't remember what it was, the latest development version, what not -- and I've known a number of the Arch developers over the years. Their idea of a constantly rolling, forward-moving system is the way to go... It's neutral, it's community-based, it has everything I need. It works really really well. I've actually converted my cloud instances that I have all to Arch... It's nice." And in addition, "Their Wiki is amazing. The documentation -- it's like one of the best resources out there these days... If you look up any userspace program and how to configure it and use it. Actually, the systemd Arch Wiki pages are one of the most amazing resources out there...

>"One of the main policies of Arch, or philosophies, is you stay as close to the upstream as possible. And as a developer, I want that... They're really good in feedback to the community. Because I want that testing -- I want to make sure that things are fixed. And if it is broken, I learn about it quickly and I fix it and push the stuff out. So that's actually a really good feedback loop. And that's some of the reasons I need it."

Yep, probably. You can always use debian testing/sid/experimental by upgrading/vm/lxc
Btw, debian tutorials suggest using testing as a daily driver and stable for enterprise and large deployments

>>84471704
I guess I don't really see the purpose of using debian if you are going to use the testing repo's and essentially just use it like a minimal install of mint. Why not just skip the steps and just go for a distro specifically made for desktop.
