How many virtual workspaces / desktops do you use in your operating system?

I've always pretty much used the default 4 of many distros because I never felt the need for more. However, after I started using Tiling WMs, I really enjoyed having lots of desktops even if I didn't use them. And now 4 feels... small?

Less than 4 feels weird though, and 1 downright gives me Windows-like goosebumps.

TIL: If you use the default Python extension in VS Code you have to enable Telemetry to get it to load. That is some shit right there.

Holy Sh** has installed the simplest backdoor in your VMs without you knowing about it.

Microsoft Azure silently install management agents on your Linux VMs without an auto update mechanism, so you have to update manually but you don't know they exist because you didn't install them? 🤔

Simply remove the auth header and you are root. Remotely on all machines.🤯

2nd poll!

If you clicked Other in my first poll ( or you **don't use** Debian, Arch or Fedora based distro vote here!

What distro do you use (desktop, not server):

Yay, my first poll ended. I'm actually suprised by the result. I didn't thought that so much people use Arch based distros and a lot of you guys checked option Other.
I will make some more polls! :ablobcatattention:

Any programmers out there? Recommendations on how to get started?

I'm looking to use Go to build a web server w/ REST API. I have worked on similar types of projects in node.js, but have heard great things about Go's performance, concurrency and simplicity.

Any advice welcome!

Any recommendations for a very cheap and well available (on the used market) Android phone preferably with LineageOS support? I haven't been in the Android world for quite a while and have no idea about the current pricing but it wouldn't need more power then my Galaxy s4.

I would be interested to know what you guys' approach to DNS servers is. Do you just use whatever your ISP provides? Or do you set up your own DNS server? Do you use a privacy oriented third party? Or I have even heard of a DNS server that runs on the client machine itself (Unbound) that directly caches from the DNS root servers? Anyway would like to know the general opinion here...

Feel free to boost for visibility.

This is a reminder for anybody using or planning to use Hetzner - their CX11 and CPX11 VPS products (the two cheapest) are going up in price for any newly created servers from September 1st.

If you're in the market for one of these get your orders in before then! The price increase isn't much, but if you need a VPS mid- to long-term then you can save a little money.

Am I the only one who keeps hitting Ctrl+Shift+C in the browser (in order to copy stuff) and the Dev Tools opens? :blobcattableflip:

What CI/CD tools do you use (at work or for your own projects)?

Thanks a lot for all your answers guys! I checked the EndeavorOS page for any info on installation with btrfs and... I think I found one (
I will probably try to follow this guide next weekend and maybe test for some time :blobcathug:

Anyone using btrfs as the filesystem? What are advantages (compared to ext4)?
I think about putting Arch with btrfs on my main laptop. I would appreciate if you could share a nice install tutorial (or any good entry resource about btrfs) :ablobcatreach:

Hey, users wanted to ask you, do you use neovim? if yes what has really changed for you? Why did you switching to it? Just don't tell me it's all about the GUI and API clients or it really is?

Consider Store as an alternative to .

What it is:
- it is a Google Play Store mirror
- open source and free
- no tracking
- available on F-Droid ()
- works without a Google account
- doesn't need Google Play Services (nor )
- not recommended: you can log in with a Google account if you wish
- UI is way easier to navigate compared to Google's Store
