I just switched from Arch to Fedora...

I know I know that all the cool kids use arch, but right now I'm not up for checking out random gdm bugs or some other manual tasks. I need a stable, fairly supported and well maintained distro and fedora just works!

    I'd say fedora is more hipster than arch, arch is more of a "I'm a vegan" kind of thing, it seems people use it just so they can tell you they do.

    Though using arch or being vegan can be a good thing doing/using it for a bad reasons doesn't make you virtuous.

    @Hallelouia I hear you!

    I did learned a lot and had tons of fun ricing, editing config.h files and saving 8MB by having a super minimalistic installation... But I need to get stuff done so I can get paid!

    @benj I've been running fedora as a work platform for a bit more than a year, and nothing would make me go back to an other distro, stability, regular updates, I actually like DNF, and still most of the arch wiki (best wiki) is applicable. If I had the time I would definitely build an LFS (http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/)

    @theKarlisK +1 for the ongoing joke!!

    I didn't had that experience but kind of did it intuitively... If I can have the app native I'd choose that route.

    Thinks like Spotify or Slack that don't really need a lot of external access are flatpak (also because I'm lazy...)

    But I NEED to be able to call code . and subl . from the terminal!

    @benj well you can set up official VScode and sublime repo in dnf

    I did the same thing I do not regret anything. Especially that gnome is smoother.
