I must be the worst #sysadmin ever! Somehow blew up my nextcloud and mastodon cloud servers and for some reason can't get my back ups to restore where things were... I'm glad that this isnt my day job! #linux #bsd

it's been a year since I put Ubuntu Budgie on my old Asus laptop to "see what Linux is all about". I had recently bought a brand new laptop with a preinstalled operating system that is supposedly the best around. Months of crashing and instability led me to put it on the shelf where it stayed for the better part of a year.
I immediately fell smitten to Linux and found myself learning daily.
Yesterday I successfully installed as a culmination to my year of learning. :gentoo: :tux:

Finally joined the fediverse and fosstodon seemed like a solid place to jump in.

I am a Fedora Linux user (full-time since v25) and have been using Linux and FOSS in some capacity for the past ten years. My roots are in Debian.

Recently I've been taking the time to really learn Vim and alongside that, started writing in Markdown. I'm also learning to use Ansible and reading through The Phoenix Project by Gene Kim, et al.

Looking forward to being a part of this community!

I've been lurking here for a while now thought I might officially introduce myself. I am a software developer, cartographer, FOSS enthusiast, and bird watcher. I love to develop in and on with an

It’s not quite yet but close enough. Manjaro with Gnome 3.32 and the amazing kitty terminal.

Say hello to Telephant!

I've written a little Mastodon client for the Desktop - called Telephant - and am currently looking for beta testers!

Want to help out and don't mind compiling the app yourself? (Don't worry it's fairly straight forward and I've added detailed instructions to the README!)

Looking forward to hearing your feedback!

Not only does #telephant have a cute logo now, it just got its own Mastodon account, too. Follow it at @telephant

My barebones Gnome on Fedora. It’s simple but damn it I like it.

Can someone please explain to me why one would Linux in a VM on a Windows machine?
You are literally running the most efficient piece of software on top of the most inefficient piece of shit (can't call it software for obvious reasons).

I got Fedora 30 up and running back to normal on the new SSD and it is running like a dream. 8gb of ram and a new drive makes Gnome run the way it should as well. I might try out i3 later today to really see the computer fly.

From off to a functioning desktop it took less than half the time I’m used to and now updates are installing so fast I can barely keep track of them. I’m never using a spinny drive again.
