After being a Microsoft slave for over a decade, Linux has set me free!

Reddit - Tue, 2018-10-02 05:12

I've been using windows since XP when i got my first PC, never heard of Linux prior to getting my first PC, over the year I dabbled in Linux by ordering a CD from Ubuntu(Australian internet OP) kept going back to windows since i'm a big gamer.

I'm not a huge gamer these days, i play vanilla wow and a few other games on steam, with Valves announcement of proton, i decided it was time to try to move to Linux again, throughout the install process i shrunk my windows 10 install partition, which actually completely destroyed it (MFT gone, backup MFT gone, i didn't have anything important since i have most things on my NAS) decided it was time to nuke it and give Linux my entire optane 900p to fly with.

It's been roughly 3-4 weeks and I'm loving every moment of it, both my laptop and desktop both are running arch Linux(BTW did I mention i use Arch Linux? :P)

So many things are a huge improvement, being able to choose whatever DE i want, the freedom to control the operating system on the PC i own, updates a lighting quick (although, windows update only ever took a minute unless it was a huge update) the fact i can just punch a quick command into the terminal and update basically everything in a few minutes is a godsend..

edit: Basically, i just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone in the Linux community who allow this to all happen, I've yet to run into an issue with any game i want to play, (other then maybe PUBG but that game is dead to me these days).

Is there anyway i can give back to the community?

The End of the Road: systemds "Socket" Units

LXer - Tue, 2018-10-02 03:58
Sockets are used for two different processes to share data or for shuttling information from one machine to another and the network. They are extremely useful and the basis of things like FTP, real-time network chat systems, secure shells, and so on.

Seeking recommendations for dependency based init alternatives, excluding SystemD

Reddit - Tue, 2018-10-02 03:54

I would like to avoid SystemD but maintain reasonably fast boot times. Does anyone have recommendations for well-maintained dependency based init alternatives that are similarly performant, but will not leave the bad taste of Poettering in my mouth?

GNOME 3.30 Desktop Environment Is Now Available on Flathub as Flatpak Runtimes

TuxMachines - Tue, 2018-10-02 02:14

Dubbed "Almeria" after the host city of the GUADEC 2018 conference, the GNOME 3.30 desktop environment was released on September 5, 2018, with numerous new features and lots of improvements for fans of the GNOME desktop, which is used by default in dozens of GNU/Linux distributions, including Ubuntu.

But the GNOME desktop environment is not a small project, so it takes a few weeks to arrive in the software repositories of various popular distros. This usually happens when the first point release, GNOME 3.30.1 in this case, is out, which was released last week. And now, it's available for installation as Flatpak runtimes from the Flathub repository.

I am just sitting here with my notebook, that runs Linux with kde, coding on vscode, listening to awesome music on Amarok and realized that I am feeling grateful for all the awesome stuff i can afford thanks to you all - Opensource community. Sadly everything comes to money, and I am not rich bitch so i can't afford to donate to everything I use and please forgive me. I hope my appreciation is something.
