Ooo, a new tech board? fuck it i'll make the first thread on linux autism, any anons on here run linux? if so what distro and rice setup you rocking? Deb/XFCE here for that comfy practical setup.

Somewhat unrelated, I was watching a smaller Linux YT channel and they leaked that Linux Mint is setting up some sort of inner clique for shilling that POS distro among new users, majority of people being bloggers, and casual tech channels apparently, and are intended to influence their audience to use Mint; what are you guys' thought on that?

Nice xfeces.

No one talks about Mint anymore. Too little, too late. District popularity is extremely faddish. The year of the Linux desktop can only happen when desktops are dead.

lel xfeces is the best of the "muh liteweight" DEs tbh, yet to try openbox and window managers tho I can already predict thats a whole level of autism I can do without, same for arch tbh.

and for the most part I can agree on the sentiment that distro popularity is faddish, the only reason I rock debian is because it does what I want it to, they way i want it to.

Unrelated however, I really wanna dive into OpenBSD at some point, as I reckon it could be fun to get into after all the hurdles.

fuck DEs. all suck Lennart poettering dick with bloat.
go with window managers, don't intall gui bloat. use command line as much as possible. you hardware will stay stronk in the long run.
OpenBSD all the way, tbh.

mint being the beginner friendly distro has completely faded into obscurity because of ubuntu for quite a while now, i settled for manjaro with kde (fuggen zoomer shit i kno) on desktop but have planned to switch to arch and trying spectrwm as a first tiling wm, i've just been too lazy since it just keeps werking, on my laptop i've got manjaro with openbox, but am trying out a lot, since i don't constantly use the laptop or really need to, for security and less bloat i'll try openbsd on it next, since that's what i wanna set up my server with too, can't use it on desktop sadly because of nvidia…

I run Mint because it's great. Cinnamon, XFCE, and KDE are all nice WMs too.

The only downside that I have is that none of them easily support mouse speed without acceleration, but there is a way to fix that on the command line

Returned to using Linux about a year ago and I also use a Debian and XFCE combo. In the past I ran some ricer distros like Arch but I just can't be assed to mess around with that stuff any more. This is the most practical setup I could find for my tastes.
I'm tempted by Devuan because of the init issue but I find those spin off distros don't have the same level of support. Used #!, AptoSid, BunsenLabs, and AntiX in the past but I got tired of swapping due to the distros dying quietly or updates gradually waning so I'll probably stick with mainline distros from now on.

I set up Mint (I think with Cinnamon) for a small business I help out with recently. Had to be something simple to use because it's run by old people. They were already used to OpenOffice and otherwise just needed a web browser so little pain on that transition.

Guix with xfce is super comfy
