Which distro has the best GUI in your opinion?
I've dabbled with Linux over the years, first with Ubuntu in the early 2010s, then Elementary OS when that dropped, and a few years ago I really enjoyed how customizable the gui was with Xubuntu. I was able to make it look just like WIndows 2000 which was really cool. Which current distro has the best GUI, in your opinion? I find modern Ubuntu to feel a little basic and cheap. I guess I don't really like modern Gnome. I'm currently using Windows 10 LTSC which is probably the best possible version of Windows, but I'd jump to linux if I could find a distro with a gui that feels at least as polished and feature rich as Windows 10 LTSC.

Does anyone know how to fix that one bug in cinnamon where the file “save as” window doesn’t let you rename files and keeps redirecting your keyboard input to the search bar?
All desktop managers have pros and cons. Cinnamon's biggest issue for me is the "save as" window. To get to it, go somewhere such as a web browser, right click on something and do "save as". Now try to name that file anything other than what was already in the filename textbox. It won't let you. You click on the box to position your cursor, type 1 character and it immediately forces your context focus into the search bar for searching for files in the directory. Clicking the box again, type 1 character and it forces your context focus and cursor into the stupid useless fucking search bar again. I can only rename files by bringing up a text editor, typing what I want and then pasting it into the save as name box. Does anyone know how to fix this?

>The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) is proposing rules that could benefit patent trolls, increase patent litigation costs, and harm the open-source software community. The Linux Foundation, along with other organizations like the Electronic Frontier Foundation and Unified Patents, is urging people to take action and submit comments to the USPTO expressing their support for a fair and open system that allows challenges to invalid patents. The proposed rules could favor non-practicing entities (NPEs) and hinder the ability of organizations like Unified Patents to challenge bad patents. The consequences could be costly for businesses and hinder innovation. The deadline for comments is June 20, 2023.

Jorge Castro, a developer of the project, talks about why Image-based (immutable) systems are way better. They are ready to use today, for most people. Changes to the system can be done in a centralized location, like their NVIDIA images, and you can be sure every Client has exactly the same image. If something breaks, you can reset it! And its also way safer, as you have a clean system. Apps cant install what they want. You can easily revert all your changes with `rpm-ostree reset`. Btw. you can still install as many packages as you want with `rpm-ostree install` and even add COPRs and other repos like RPMFusion (included in ublue). Feel free to ask questions! Ublues enhanced Kinoite image is what I use. Minimal layers, awesome experience!

What’s that one feature you liked so much while distrohopping that you want it by default in all distros?
I have always been discovering new things about Linux distros while distro hopping. And when I get something I really like, I just copy the package name and make sure I install it in every distro I use in the future. Let me start: 1. Clipboard manager (Gpaste) 2. KDE connect

Do you want to keep your home directory tidy and free from clutter? If so, xdg-ninja is here to help. This shell script checks your $HOME for unwanted files and directories, and tells you if it's possible to move them to a more appropriate location. The configurations for xdg-ninja come from the [Arch Wiki page on XDG_BASE_DIR](, antidot, and other users. The script is easy to use, and you can run it either manually or with Homebrew. If you're using nix, you can run the following command: `nix run github:b3nj5m1n/xdg-ninja`. xdg-ninja's dependencies include your favorite POSIX-compliant shell, and `jq` for parsing the JSON files. Additionally, you can use optional programs like `glow` for rendering Markdown in the terminal. You can configure xdg-ninja by defining a program and a list of files and directories that this program puts into your $HOME directory. For each file or directory, you can specify if it can be moved, and if so, you can provide instructions on how to accomplish that. To learn more about xdg-ninja, visit the project's GitHub repository. Keep your $HOME clean with xdg-ninja!

Any interesting approaches to package management (Linux or not)? besides Portage and Nix.
Gentoo's Portage and NixOS' Nix are both interesting takes on package management. Both are powerful and open up a ton of flexbility to the user, but still do a lot of work for you. Are there any other similarly interesting approaches to the package management problem?

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

    Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
