Where can I buy linux stickers?

Probably, I'd like to get some red hat stickers. Tux is too sweet and fedora is just white and blue. A red hat is more striking.

In my experience kde is very stable. A "lot" of "instability" comes from third party features. I didn't click on the link, btw.

Bitcoin != most cryptocurrencies

Thats not true.

Of course apple profita from used laptops. If noone buys used apple laptops some of those who are replacing cannot afford the new one and there is a crowding out effect. Moreover, the higher the demand for other vendors, the higher the support for them.

Don't ever buy apple devices. It's not a good company

I understand your frustration, yet I don't think one is better than the other. I'd use KDE if it wasn't for paperwm

Doesn't GNOME work towards the android style where you have the notification that apps/processes are running in background? It's not yet perfect but they work on it. I haven't used tray icons extensively on windows. I installed them on GNOME when I moved to gnome but they got lost somewhere along my distro hopping path.

As if extensions on kde wouldn't break. How many outdated extensions are there on kde right now? Last time I checked it wasn't only one or two.

Just because everything is shipped with kde doesn't mean that gnome is worse because you have to install one more app. Yes it should be included but that's not my decision to make.

Nothing. I heavenly used both. You can customize kde through the in built settings tools and with GNOME you have to install another app to do it. Same outcome. A user can customize kde a bit more. It's both still linux with the same underlying system.

Because it's not updated often enough. Fedora is stable and up to date. Especially fedora atomic has a huge added value compared to debian.

As a user I wouldn't use debian. Server yes, workstation, no.

As soon as you share the into with a potential employer that it is you, you lose the privacy. You have to assume it's publicly known. It's not worth the effort.

If you do your research everyone knows you spend most of your day researching anyway. At least your supervisor will know who you are. You will want to talk to others and tell them "I'm currently research xy. I wrote this idea, what do you think about it?" Etc.

You should do the phd because you are intrested in the topic, not to gain some degree.

You can write your good papers as an anonymuous person. If they are very good, people would cite you. People will want to invite you.

orgmode may do that i guess

Probably market dominance

is there a bookmark manager like jabref for linux url bookmarks?

I use Jabref for papers and books. I group and rate them and keep track of reading status. There are a lot of websites that also provide valuable information but firefox' bookmark manager can't be used to rate sites or make comments. I can manually add links which is cumbersome.

Is there a similar tool like jabref for internet links?

In the optimal case it would take firefox' bookmarks and work with them such that I can bookmark a site with Ctrl+D and do all the site related work within that manager.

edit: Bonus, if it automatically fetches the article to preserve it

Today, I wanted to have another go with nix. Previously I just read about it and didn't do anything for a couple of months. Now, I installed nix package manager with very few lines of code and two more to install many packages as described in his post. Installation was very fast on my banana laptop. Until now I used distrobox but I always wondered which distro/ package manager to use. What's your experience with it? For now, I'll test it. It's super easy to use. It may not be straight forward to a linux newcomer but if you know what you want, e.g. ffmpeg you can just add it with home-manager edit and install it with home-manager switch. So far, I love it!


I wonder if there is a nptocable difference between a HDD and SSD. Did someone already test it? I run it off a good SSD but wonder if a HDD would be enough.


What's up with homebrew that you'd have it installed by default on linux?

I don't understand the appeal of it, can someone help me?


I just bought a new computer. I'll install fedora silverblue. Do I just need to copy the home directory? And crontab. What else do I need to move?


I'm checking out flowly right now. I'm looking for a kanban board that optimally connects with a todo list and calendar, preferably webdav (but no must). what can you guys recommend?


Whats your fav kanban board for linux (and android)?

I know of planka, obsidian and nextcloud deck. What's your favorite tool?
