Recommendation for OS

Looking for something flashy and pretty. Something I can swap a windows user too and show them the power and flash of Linux. I am going to reinstall their laptop tomorrow. A good app store would be nice too. As a arch user its been awhile since I played with other distros.

What is the video card to get these days?

I have a intel xeon e5-2620 @ 2.4ghz 12 core proc.

16GB ram

the current video card is quadro k2200

To be honest its ran almost everything I have thrown at it with little issue but thinking about getting back more into PC gaming and maybe VR on PC as my psvr just don't have some of the titles I want.

@HexDSL or anyone have any suggestions that will fit my machine. I want good linux support but I do dual boot for a few games.

So who thinks Rey is the granddaughter of Palpatine?

Understanding #2

systemd has incredible docs, some of the best I've ever seen, since systemd is so huge though it's difficult to find anything in systemd.

'man systemd.index' - index of man pages related to systemd.

'man systemd.directives' - list of all directives (variables) for use when creating or understanding units files (files end with .service or .mount etc)

'man systemd.special' - list of units that systemd provides and are considered important.

Understanding systemd #1

Contrary to popular belief is not just an init system. Take everything you know about older init systems and throw it out the window, that's what the systemd devs did anyway.

Init is one part of systemd but it also does things like process management, application resource management, cgroup implementations, containerization, networking, device management, etc.

I personally call it a full management layer.

For those that don't know I work at Red Hat. I do support and my primary focus is on systemd.

As there's a massive misunderstanding across the board with , from what it actually is to how do I properly create unit files, I was thinking of trying to do kind of a recommendations and explanations one toot at a time.

So if anyone has questions or would like explanations please let me know.

question about terminology as it pertains to domains. What specific terms references domains like .online .network .xyz and so on.. Basically I am looking for a term to describe non .com .net .org domains would that still be gTDL?

Sometimes I miss the days of the old internet. I grew up in the wild west of the internet and BBS's. The boards didn't have all these rules and codes of conduct's. If you didn't like something you kept scrolling. You had to have thick skin or you shouldn't be there. We sometimes dished out shit and sometimes took it. Then we logged off and continued with our lives. How things have changed.

Next time you grab your Amazon package just think about all the piss on the peoples hands handling them.

Amazon piss bottle.

I have to say how much I love the klipper firmware!

I much rather vi a config file to make a change to my 3d printer and not have to go through the hassle of compile and flash the firmware for each change.
