GNU/Linux Lovers here ?

Recommended Posts

Hello there,

I been using Gnu/Linux as my primary OS and only OS I use in my Work/Personal Laptop ( before that I used to have dual boot with Windows, the last version of MS OS I have used was Windows XP ). I been totally satisfied with the performance  of Linux and everything I needed was there. For the development, I use the Geany editor ( now I am using Atom ), GIMP for some few image editing, XAMPP for the STACK.  Right now I am on Manjaro Box with Kubuntu as the second OS.

How many others here use GNU/Linux as the primary OS setup ?

Actually i mostly use Linux too. 

Just using a Xubuntu as it  is lacking most the cool and modern desktop effects i not really like. 

Libre Office as it often is more "compatible" for opening office documents than Microsoft office itself. In addition it has far better support for CSV data files.

Gimp for grafiks, Imagemagick for scripted image processing./creation.
In addition Scribus and Inkscape for other tasks

Vim, Mousepad, Atom, Jedit, PHP-Storm as editor/development environment. 

Firefox / Thunderbird for web and communication.

On the server side i  almost never used anything else than Linux/BSD. 
Apache, NGINX, MariaDB, MySQL, PostgreSQL, PHP,  Perl, Python, Bash ....  

What else do i need ? 😀

Yes, Linux here, either Mint or plain Arch depending on which machine I'm using. All my VPSs are running Ubuntu at present.

Ha, I also started using Fedora Core in 2003. I've tried a lot of distros over the years and have pretty much settled on RHEL/CentOS for servers because of the great documentation. I use Windows at my day job (with a bit of Ubuntu through WSL) and Mac for music production. There's plenty to love (and dislike) about each OS, to be honest. It's impressive how many tools actually work well on Linux these days, and how things like wireless network and soundcard compatibility aren't the complete nightmares they were back in the 00's.

Another great thing about Linux is that you can look at, say, UNIX documentation from the '70s or a Red Hat book from 1998 and much of it will still be relevant and useful.

I once spent 2 days trying to configure my modem and my Sound Blaster drivers on Slackware. What a pain :). Nowadays is much easier indeed, but not perfect. I can't work on Linux full time because I need to use Adobe products almost everyday and unfortunately the there's no better workflow than running them on Windows or MacOS.

A few months back I gave Linux another chance. I was looking for something that could improve my workflow in some kind or the other and yes... I'm still on Linux. Tried a lot of distros and windows managers since then - right now I'm super happy with Manjaro and the i3 (i3-gaps) window manager.

Works pretty pretty well so far.
