What distro do you use as a daily driver (desktop Linux, not server)? Pros and cons of the chosen one?
What family does your distro belong to?
Pros: probably the most up-to-date, non-rolling distro that thus tends to work best on laptops. Very modern. Easy to maintain and upgrade. Dnf is the best package manager.
Cons: not the best starting point if you're a KDE fan. You must like systemd and network manager. Frequent new releases (but it's OK to only upgrade every second iteration).
Pro/Con (depending on taste): does not ship with non-free drivers and software. Close ties to Redhat.
@fedops I actually never tried Fedora (I have been thing about that distro a year ago, but chosen EndeavorOS instead).
Have you tried Fedora Silverblue? I heard about that version in a podcast and the idea behind Silverblue is interesting
@arek openSUSE Tumbleweed:
Pros: snapper+btrfs (and its integration to zypper). People also mention YaST as a system config tool but I barely use it at all.
Cons: I can't watch PeerTube videos without adding external repos because oS build service does not allow patented codecs.
@arek I really like Alpine. I even maintain a couple of packages.
apk is the fastest package manager, it leaves apt in the dust and is quite a bit faster than pacman, even with ParallelDownloads.
I'm not too interested in the systemd war, but I do think that OpenRC syntax is a lot more usable.
I personally haven't had anything major break because of musl, but that might be a problem if you're stuck with using proprietary applications.
@person I haven't gamed a whole lot since switching, but Hollow Knight and DOOM 2016 both work just fine for me
