Alpine Linux is apparently more Unix than generic GNU/Linux distributions.
But with Linux kernel Bolted on.
Oh right Alpine is not GNU/Linux it's just Linux.
Gnutils are replaced with busybox and glibc with musl
IT'S A LINUX OS THAT IS NOT GNU

Does anyone on the fediverse like ? Is it a decentralised project that we should pay attention to among the sea of similar projects?

Using Sway (Wayland compositor and i3 clone) as a daily driver

After a few weeks, I think it’s very usable:

- It includes nearly all features I’ve become accustomed to on i3 and X in general.
- Non-Wayland applications (including games) work very well through XWayland.
- I actually have fewer graphical glitches with my old AMD card.
- Kitty (terminal manager) starts up faster than under X.

@sir Hi Drew just wanted to make some suggestions for the arewesimpleyet website.

libc: musl c? I seen a few others with similar goals to musl, but musl seems to be more complete.

init: s6? Or a similar fork, this one was recommended to me by a BSD head.

HL programming: golang?

GUI: sway/wlroots? How simpler could you go with the current Linux ecosystem?

Side-by-side:

Librem 5 Dev Kit & Librem 5 "Aspen" batch.

You should probably stop using Startpage.com as a search engine.

appears to have sold out to a company called "System1" who are a "pay-per-click behavioral ad company"

Please boost for exposure.

Holy smokes.

LibreOffice runs on the Librem 5!

AND IT WORKS.

Saving files, opening files, typing... the UI is a bit cramped (it's a desktop app on a phone)... but hot-diggity! It works!
