Stopped following that dweeb during the start of the pandemic as his reviews, which were usually calm started to get angrier and angrier for no good reason. StL it pretty much the typical angry alt-right lunatic.

joojmachine OP ,

Right? This is one of the main reasons I love Silverblue so much: every time I wanted to test something out, it's as quick and easy as it gets.

Love Flowtime, I use it almost every time I need to work on something other than my full-time job

joojmachine ,

Also really nice to see the ~10% performance improvement in some workflows in there

As someone who's an active user and contributor to Fedora: words cannot express enough how much I hate US laws.

It's the reason we can't ship with H.264 hardware decoding out of the box, it's the reason why we can't provide access to our project and our community to sanctioned countries (Cuba being one that really hurts me, but mainly Iran right now, which makes me really sad because I'm having to answer people from Iran almost weekly asking on how they can be a part of the project with "unfortunately you can't").

I dream of a day where Fedora's trademark changed to the hands of a non-profit foundation outside of the US.

joojmachine ,

I believe some other distros have this issue, but I'm not sure about specific ones. US laws are pretty complicated by themselves, even more when you try to understand how it affects projects from other countries that are trying to be available on US.

joojmachine OP ,

All of the Flatpaks mentioned on the post are available on Flathub though, we do recognize that most people use it, so we recommend apps available on it.

joojmachine OP ,

What cost? It works really well, hence why it's gaining traction so fast.

joojmachine OP ,

Happens to the best of us 😅

joojmachine OP ,

I've literally used it to take the screenshot for it that you see on the banner, it works well enough.

joojmachine OP ,

You can always download it as an extension instead of a system package for the extension, but yeah, it's available on our repos.

Also, pretty good. It will likely never be as many packages as there are in Debian's repos, but even without Flatpak there was never a package I couldn't find either in our repos or on COPR.

joojmachine OP ,

As a contributor, I'm biased, but let me put it this way: it's the distro that made me so comfortable using it and with a community so welcoming, I became a contributor 😅

Shammy fans: cry in 1 video every 2 years

joojmachine ,

I can't recommend Seong's channel enough, his videos are always of such great quality

joojmachine OP ,

Ideally becoming an active contributor to the project would be better, maybe you can start with that and eventually contribute with more as time goes on, you can always join our onboarding Matrix room and say hi!

joojmachine OP ,

It is saying that more than one million people are actively using Flathub. What do you mean by force?

joojmachine OP ,

There are no cases of this that I know of. There are some developers that don't encourage repackaging their apps, though.

joojmachine ,

You can just download the app from Flathub right now and it should hopefully make its way directly into GNOME in the future. At least some work was being done to implement this directly into it.

joojmachine ,

It seems stable enough already TBH, at least from my small testing with the app. It's more about getting things ready to be exposed in the settings app and in the system.

joojmachine ,

Also, highly recommend checking out Universal Blue's Surface images! It's pretty much everything you need out of the box! https://universal-blue.org/images/surface/?h=surface

joojmachine ,

I haven't tried the Surface images due to not having one, but I am using their Silverblue images to make the whole NVIDIA drivers thing a bit easier on my system.

Also I haven't needed to backup my system in over a year now (I stopped hopping with Silverblue) so I don't remember the solution I used, but this seems good.

joojmachine ,

Stick with Fedora, but give a shot to the Atomic variants (Silverblue, Kinoite, etc.) You can always switch DEs back and forth with one command. Even if you don't stay with Fedora, it will help a lot for you to find the desktop environment that fits your workflow best (although I do recommend sticking with Fedora)

joojmachine ,

I'm all in for performance improvements, hope to see this reach Proton ASAP

Weekly Updates from Fedora's Marketer ‒ Week 1 (ko-fi.com)

Hey guys, I've finally started exploring talking about the work I'm doing with the Fedora Project as part of the marketing team and now as part of the design and magazine teams too! I really enjoy the "This Week in" style of weekly reports on all the work that is being done, so I'm looking forwards to sharing it like that!...
