Re: Distro-hoppers anonymous

Experimenting with MX right now and debating if encrypting the homedir (which MX does) is enough v. doing LUKS/LVM for the whole drive (which I do in other distros) for CYA work security purposes.

Re: Distro-hoppers anonymous

Github just suggested this one to me:

oasis — a small statically-linked linux system

It uses the velox window manager, which appears to be very similar to dwm but running under Wayland cool

Will do smile

Can't quite figure out the build system atm (ninja & lua based?) but I'm sure I'll get there eventually.

MX is growing on me. I did make a wacky antiX/BL setup and may yet try it with MX.

Re: Distro-hoppers anonymous

^ A pre-configured Debian XFCE distribution? Very nice cool

Shame they don't do a version based on stable.

EDIT: MX Linux have that covered though glasses

Re: Distro-hoppers anonymous

MidnightBSD is a desktop fork of FreeBSD and it's been in development since 2006.

It must be a very reliable distro, because when I had a look at their forum, there were not many issues to read about.

Btw just saw STAR. Interesting, based on Devuan.

Awesome distribution cool

Anybody who wants a #!-like distribution with nosystemd should check that out.

Re: Distro-hoppers anonymous

OpenBSD 6.3 is out:

https://www.openbsd.org/63.html

I've been using -current for ~3 years now and it just keeps getting better & better cool

Anybody with Intel or AMD hardware (there is some Ryzen support now) should try it out; no NVIDIA users though tongue

Re: Distro-hoppers anonymous

nice find dolly
cli focused, dwm and openbox, no loginmanager, no systemd, no bells or whistles... hmm, smells like home.

edit: oh, and this

Did you know that "crunkbong" is a nonsense-homonym of the name "crunchbang," a once-popular Linux distribution now owned by BunsenLabs? Pretty cool, huh?

That's fun.

Re: Distro-hoppers anonymous

After many years on archlinux with my highly configured openbox/tint2 setup I'm now running Ubuntu 18.04 with gnome.  Go figure. And it works fine tbh and I have my preferred workflow almost with some great extensions like  'Top panel workspace scroll', 'Desktop scroller' and more. My initial plan was to try to live in elementary but I got bored waiting so now I'm on stock Noobuntu and I have to say I'm loving it. As I said, go figure.

More like pwned, amIrite? monkey

Saw the distro on DW yesterday, I did like the knowledge of history on their part. I'm guessing no non-free packages if they're going with devuan?

Re: Distro-hoppers anonymous

Okay I checked this out......underwhelmed to say the least.  It doesn't do much for me.  If I'm going to use Debian with OB, it's going to be BL.

Re: Distro-hoppers anonymous

That's interesting with True OS. Do they make their own DE (Trident)? I think this is the most popular BSD distro on distrowatch.

They use the Lumina Desktop - I think Trident is just what they call their implemnetation of it.
