…well… that is how I started learning (and getting used to) GNU/Linux, so eh.

Little help here linux guys? Trying to figure out what distro to use

Yeah. It’s another one of these. But! Here me out! So I have some experience using Linux. Run some VMs for services I run in my home, I switched my surface book 3 (funnily enough) to ubuntu for my work computer as I was getting more and more frustrated by windows 11 and it turned out really good. Was able to completely get off...

All distros are free – just choose whatever you find interesting, give it a spin, see what happens.

As someone who switched to wayland way back when sway was dominant…? About time.

A “stupidly minimal” cli package that monitors power usage in real time. Bonus points if it is written in C++, with zero dependencies.

Not really – it has way too many “bells and whistles” to be called as “stupidly minimal”. Then again, what I had in mind was something more straightforward with nothing else than “Current power draw: (number goes here)W. Updates every 3 seconds.”

Eh, just try new commands in your distro and see what happens – “time is the best teacher of em all”.

imo, that is like learning a new language you’ll never use – who on earth would search for new employees that can compile their own distro? It’s fun at first, but definitely not useful.

Being fun does not make (thing) a necessity let alone useful – there are a lot of useless things that are fun.

No one would want to buy this to use with high-demanding applications, but for hobbies and trivial stuff. With that said, even a Orange pi zero 3 is “better” than both Rpi 5 and the n100.

tl;dr: The magic word is convenience.

“Bloat” implies “excess”, “overloaded” – anything that has been installed and used without my consent or a badly optimized package/command.

Is gentoo Linux really worth it?

I’ve installed gentoo but there seems like there’s so many sacrifices. I love that it’s all open source, but I really don’t mind closed source software now and then, because after all I would be using it to play closed source games. The biggest compromise I’ve observed is the very long build times. I have a lukewarm...

GustavoM,

afaik, the “main gimmick” of gentoo is to have a distro that is 100% optimized for your PC. That aside, I don’t see a point installing it unless your PC is centuries old and really need the extra speed boost.

What do we learned today kids? Baseless/empty words = not an opinion. :^)

Arch linux. Minimal install, hyprland. $ROOTSYS* set to ro, ~/.cache and ~/Downloads to tmpfs. alsa, bemenu, wine-staging, lutris. Couldn’t be happier.

GustavoM,
@GustavoM@lemmy.world avatar

Eh, did a little “oopsie” there, my bad.

GustavoM,
@GustavoM@lemmy.world avatar

Even a smol potato like the Orange pi zero 3 (which -still- has zero linux support) can run Linux, so don’t worry about it.

Just tell em, “What if I told you theres an OS with no annoying ads popping on your screen 24/7?” – “Yeah? Is that a modified Wi–” – “Nope. Linux”. And bam. :^)

I am thinking about hosting my own Mastodon server from home on a Raspberry Pi (Pi4 8GB)?

  1. Are there good tutorials out there?
  2. What's the annual cost just to host yourself?

Pretty sure that’d rip your microsd in half really quick.
