The thing bothered me a lot on elementary works on fedora great as native. It's a possibility to switch typing languages as fast as possible. #linux
Was talking to one of older colleagues who were professional developers, when #Linux raised.
Got an unpopular opinion that it was not that great people were speaking of it. There were more superior POSIX compillant OSes, e.g. #FreeBSD. Lots of features Linux has now were there about 19 years ago.
Why people are so obsessed with Linux then? Is it a hype, and in 10 years we'll call Linux an awful legacy?
Giving my laptop some hard time in recoding thing from mp3 to ogg. Also, first time in my life I found out that it is easier to write a #python script that to write #bash script to work with files with spaces. It took for about several hours to try making script in bash and about 15 minutes to write a python script that does literally the same, faster and more stable! #Linux #nerd #life is hard :D
Switched intel_pstate to generic kernel driver and switched to conservative governor. Got additional ~30 minutes on battery.
And I thought that intel_pstate should be a default driver for intel-based CPU. But it seems that generic driver gives me more power and control over the CPU usage.
Love that thing in #Linux
Have been testing out #elementary in a virtual machine. Things I`ve learnt:
1. Try avoiding installation things not from recommended in AppCenter at system. Use the executable or AppImage if available (second is great, first is ok);
2. Probably there is no flatpak/snap support in AppCenter;
3. It can work on 2 GiB of RAM (but 4 is beter). But system should have at least 2 cores CPU;
4. #eOS has very different usage logic than Gnome despite is built on top of it;
5. Miss desktop icons.
Sometimes I want to have several small computers to try out lightweight #Linux setups just for fun and to avoid wish to try something different on my primary laptop.
I have pledged #Akira project: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/alecaddd/akira-the-linux-design-tool
if you want to make #Linux more competitive to other operating systems from professional usage perspective, mind making a pledge too 😉
