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

>2500+ packages installed
>5gb ram idle
bro what are you even doing lmao


pacman is simple and clean, apt-get/dpkg is like a taped together homunculus


>>5gb ram idle
it's cache for squid and unbound
>>the rest
you might not like it but this is what perfection looks like


I see my desktop maybe once per month, briefly

I always have a window open fullscreen


Don't base your opinions on something some random person said sometime, and definitely don't base them on memes. That said I hate manjaro because I accidentally destroyed my system trying to install it. >:(


fuck manjaro



>I accidentally destroyed my system trying to install it. >:
you are pissed because you "accidentally" destroyed your other OS that you were going to need to destroy anyway to install the new OS? lol

here is mine


you can have more than one operating sytem


it wasn't clear in the post that it was supposed to be a dual boot



im surprised. ive run manjaro solo boot and dual boot alongside windows and other linux distros without issue. polished look and polished performance. the only reason it isn't my daily driver is because i have issues getting my vpn's running on it here in china.

Manjaro-gnome comes with many features that make it actually usable like a dock launcher and desktop icons

it's pretty boring, not much to see. i'm quite new to using linux regularly, and my current setup is not ideal but usable, i haven't been fiddling/changing anything about my linux setup lately (and there are some minor issues, for example when i wake the computer up from hibernation it quickly shows my desktop before going to the login screen, so imagine if i have something confidential open and then let's say and someone else wakes up my pc), but im considering trying going window manager only without a DE

don't bully me for the anon user name, it's good enough and i couldnt think of a different user name, and i dont wanna use my real name


I had a distrohopping period from 2014 to 2016, then spent a year on archlinux which was the most interesting and stable for me. It was so fun to customize and tinker with stuff and i'm not even a programmer or anything. But then I bought a decent PC and just installed W10 LTSC which is also very stable and too simple to use.
But your screenshots make me want to play with distros again and discover the progress they achieved. I wish I had a laptop to do such things. Sorry for the lack of picture.

Update I have been using this for a while but I think I should explain the reasons Gnome works for me, and may not be worth it for you
1. I stay inside emacs for a lot of things, so I don't need to use my mouse. Gnome is heavily mouse driven and the keybinds are cumbersome and inconsistent compared to something like a minimal OS where (for example) i3, vim, mpv, ranger, and MUpdf all share keybinds and you don't have to use a mouse.
2. My mouse sensitivity is set high 4800 dpi. This means I can use the "hot corner" which causes pic related, a mode where you can search for programs, files or select a window.
3. I don't game. Gnome use wayland which AFAIK doesn't support wine and maybe some other important stuff but im not to sure yet
4. I have 8Gb ram.

This is my laptop. This setup is much snappier than Gnome would be on this older hardware.

I tried linux once and it was horrible, idk why you guys don't just use windows.


>idk why you guys don't just use windows.
There are a lot of people explaining why they like Linux itt.
What distro did you try?


I tried mint on my virtual machine and it wasn't very user friendly at all


Probably because Linux is objectively better. The 3 issues a person can have with Linux are
>A. It's missing a piece of software that you're used to.
In this case Linux usually has alternatives that are feature complete. The reason it's still a problem for people is because they don't want to get used to the alternatives. They might know rationally that Microsoft Excel doesn't offer more than Linux spreadsheet software, but they're so used to it that it seems like too much effort to learn something new.
>B. Incompatible with their hardware.
Not a Linux issue, it's usually an issue of Microsoft paying nvidia to delay device drivers for Linux and Mac or Nvidia paying a game developer to sabotage performance on AMD platforms
>C. It's different.
When someone gets really used to a specific thing it can be hard to change.
>D. Bonus: Fell for propaganda

Linux always outperforms Windows except on the newest video games or video games that don't get native Linux ports. I suppose if someone only cares about new triple-A games then Windows is the best option. However, Linux still outperforms Windows in memory footprint, CPU utilization, disk space, and more. It's kind of well known that Windows cannot compete with MacOS and Linux but I thought I'd throw that in. Really, Windows is the gamers choice but not because it has good performance itself, but because most games are designed to perform well on Windows(because most gamers use Windows).

Windows: For people who don't know any better.
>-Horrible privacy since Win8
>-Horrible performance(compared to Unix OS's) since msDOS
>-Horrible for developers(most choose Mac or Linux)
>-Horrible freedom and customizability
>+Game devs target Windows
MacOS: For people who want something better than Windows and/or they fell for the Apple brand name.
>-Horrible privacy
>-Horrible freedom and customizability
>+Great performance
>+Good for development
>+Unix based
Linux: For people who want something better than Windows but don't care about Apple branding.
>-Dependency hell is a thing that can happen in some popular distros
>-OS fragmentation(too many distros very few standards)
>+Best performance, although only marginally better than Mac
>+Best for development
>+Unlimited freedom and customizability
>+Okay privacy on average
>+Unix based

>mint … wasn't very user friendly
Im not surprised.
Most so called beginner linux's fail to teach the user and also fail to work perfectly with just the non terminal tools.

why is it that im the only one with multiple monitors
also why did it take me 3 days of hesitation to post?


and vodka, dont forget about the vodka


>monitor 1: discord or some gay chat
>monitor 2: reddit or some browser-specific website
>monitor 3: videogame
>monitor 4: streamer
this is what people use multiple monitors on, am i wrong. it's stupid no thanks


yeah, what do you use your one monitor?
also the fuck is a "browser-specific website"?!

why do you have two screenshots of my garbage disney movie thread on /b/ I can see the screenshots of The Lion King 2 there and The Little Mermaid too. What the fuck?


Nah, bro, it's more like:
>monitor 1: various stock exchange real-time graphs and charts
>monitor 2: hackeresque terminal for taking screenshots quickly
>monitor 3: ricing tutorial
>monitor 4: web browser with hundreds of tabs

After I add my fifth monitor and put some random anime in the background, my productivity will go through the roof.


i found them funny and i have an obsession of archiving…


>monitor 1: various stock exchange real-time graphs and charts
>monitor 2: hackeresque terminal for taking screenshots quickly
i have a hot key for that
>monitor 3: ricing tutorial
>monitor 4: web browser with hundreds of tabs
that is surprisingly accurate
i have only 3 monitors tho mate

Well, hope you had a good laugh…

the reason we don't use Windows is because we all had a reason to use Linux.
for me, I wanted a cooler Command Line™ and to have access the large amount of stronger linux softwares such as an upgraded notepad and resource conscious software.


I try to not post cartoon pictures on /b/ anymore because they might report me to the FBI.
