Post your desktop
I want to see what wizards desktops look like and what they use as a daily driver.

I use Debian GNU/Linux with a full suckless setup

I feel like such a mong as a Windows user among all these Linuxers with customized layouts/builds. With more computer grammar gained recently it started to dawn on me just how clunky and all over the place Windows OS is. "Muh gamez" used to be the major turn-off but I'm seeing games with Linux compatibility everywhere now. I really should just make that jump, maybe with the next machine.

i will probably make the switch when windows 10 is obsolete. even this shit pisses me off though. after disabling updates, and windows forcing itself to try and update anyway, it has unregistered my machine and so i have some gay watermark about registering now, and several features are just outright disabled now. what a piece of ass

>how clunky and all over the place Windows OS is
Linux is worse with this, your entire system runs on software written by a bunch of different people all held together with glue and tape, you can completely brick your system by just updating a bunch of packages
>games with Linux compatibility everywhere now
Massively exaggerated, every game with linux compatibility has a "but" at the end "it runs, but…" this "but" can be anything from some minor issues that are slightly annoying, to completely unplayable without jumping through a bunch of hoops and messing with tons of config files just so you can play a game for 20 minutes. Sure, compatibility is a lot better than it was 10 years ago but it's still shit. My usual problems are low fps, input lag, bugs with sound playback, random crashes, and visual artifacts/glitches.

first, https://www.w10privacy.de/deutsch-start/download/, it works fine and I never had any regression of settings
>second
Why do you have a problem with updating your pc? I've heard this line from nearly everyone I ever interacted with, nothing bad has ever happened from installing an update, I just occasionally check if theres an update out and then I download it and then install it before I go to bed
>it has unregistered my machine
just use hwidgen

Thanks for the info and sorry for late reply. Guess it's not all that black-and-white, huh.
I'm not completely against using Windows, just tired with its rough edges that you can do nothing about, only cover or pretty it up.
In the end though it probably has to deal more with a longing for "my own" or "perfect" OS, where everything is just the way one wants. Switching for Linux/GNU might not help with that itch. At the very least I should still try them on a spare machine once/if I get one.

Thanks, here's the wallpaper if anybody wants it. I tried to get into the whole "living in Emacs" thing a while back, but I always end up settling back into simple terminal applications. Actually, I bitched about WM/TUI setups in my original post, but I've spent the past few weeks simplifying/cleaning up my config and I'm going to try living in it for a while on my desktop and see how it goes.

Not the person you're replying to, but I'd give it a shot. Linux undoubtedly has its issues, and it's true that, at the end of the day, Linux is composed of a ton of different parts made by different people, and there are a billion different distros and DEs, so consistency can be all over the place (it's getting better, though, in my opinion). However, I'd argue that one of the nice things about Linux is that you can basically put together your own desktop environment from scratch, which means that your desktop can (mostly) be as consistent and polished as you're willing to make it. It also means that you can implement a ton of personalized functionality that would be difficult to achieve with an WYSIWYG program or operating system. It's hard to describe if you're used to using systems like that, but with some imagination you can get really creative with what you make your computer do. If nothing else, it's fun. For example, here's a demonstration of a program that lets you make your own menus/prompts, which you can use in conjunction with scripts you write:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R9m723tAurA
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UCEXY46t3OA

I think it's a bit of an exaggeration to say you can "brick your system" just from an update–I've certainly never heard of a Linux update wiping people's files the way Windows has done in the past (repeatedly). I use Arch which has a reputation for being unstable, and the most I've ever had to do is just hold back an update since some programs weren't launching (and it turns out my system was fucked due to something that was my own fault anyway). On the note of games, there are a lot of games out there that are genuinely just a one-click play through Proton, but there's still a LOT out there that require minor tweaks to get working. That being said, if Valve is serious about the Steam Deck as a product, they're presumably going to strive to clean up those rough edges. It doesn't hurt to keep a Windows dual boot (or, if you're adventurous, a Windows VM with GPU passthrough) around for gaming.

then you open firefox, and you go to upload an image or file and…. it doesn't use your default file manager…. Just one of the simple things that annoys me, but there are many more small issues like this, gtk/qt bullshit, stuff like steam that doesn't follow any rules whatsoever, just random applications not conforming to your rules because the devs were just like "idk lol works on windows"
>I think it's a bit of an exaggeration to say you can "brick your system" just from an update–I've certainly never heard of a Linux update wiping people's files the way Windows has done in the past
Well not completely bricked, you could go in and probably get a terminal up and try to fix whatever went wrong, going over google searches for hours and for example finding out your display manager broke or something because it doesn't work with some new libs you updated or whatever. The potential for this tomfoolery is definitely there which isnt there for windows, also never experienced any file wipes on windows in my life, only time Ive seen that is when my parents get angry because they want to use their pc but they told it to update so they just keep shutting it off mid-update/repair until it doesn't work anymore
>if Valve is serious about the Steam Deck as a product, they're presumably going to strive to clean up those rough edges
their client is awful on linux, the new chat thing they added a while back has a memory leak on linux and crashes every few hours if you are using it often, it pretty much dropped support for custom theming now and doesn't respect your DE's rules, source games have horrible performance on linux, you can't even play goldsrc games on linux unless you have some specific sound drivers. Valve is a mess with linux, I don't expect much from them at this point

Artix with Sway on the cheapest laptop I found when I walked into Walmart two years ago. I had a mid-range 2019 HP Envy 13 before that, but the screen broke and none were available for my particular model and I was desperate because that's when all classes were moved online. I now have the Envy on my desk hooked to a monitor, but I'm a NEET who loves being on the bed with a laptop so I mostly use this one.

It's not so bad. It feels pretty fast with Artix despite the specs and having an HDD and not an SSD. It was atrociously slow on Windows 10. Windows also took 900-1000 MB of RAM on idle, while Artix+Sway takes 200-220 MB. I'm surprised by the amount of browser tabs I can get away with with only 4GB on Artix+Sway.

The bar is usually hidden and only shows up when I hold the super key because 768p feels rather cramped. I'm too lazy for ricing so I just took someone else's config for the bar and deleted all the things I didn't need.

Current wallpaper is Black Heart because I recently started playing Hyperdimension Neptunia Rebirth 1, but usually I have my waifu.
