Well I went at did it. Reformatted both laptop and workstation and put Manjaro on it, based on a gentle push from @HexDSL and some older videos by @ChrisWere (dont know if Chris have distro-hopped to something new). Why not full on native Arch - cuz I'm lazy, I want it to just work with little effort on my part.
Inspired by the likes of @HexDSL and @ChrisWere I decided to relaunch my blog. It's just my own take on tech I get to play with, and conversations about tech I like to have. Please stop by, any comments/suggestions will be appreciated. And if you want to partake in discussion that would be great. Just keep it clean please.
Along the same track, opinions/suggestions is the headless homelab platform (with reasons why). Which to use and why.
ESXi, Proxmox, XenServer(derivatives), Virtualbox, VirtManager/KVM/qemu on Debian/Centos, Other?
Aside from VMs I will also be running a few Docker/CRI-O containers.
All input will be appreciated.
Benchmarked my old home build NAS, to see if I could argue for getting myself new gear (gear lust is real).
Speed was saturating the 1Gbit link in both directions, and storage space only about half used.
This on an old++ AMD-E350 CPU mini-itx with 8gb ram.
Running ZFS mirror on Ubuntu Server.
Guess no need to upgrade.
Was inspired by @HexDSL video on mutt and i3. Spend a few hours going down that rabbit hole....only to wonder, why didn't I do this sooner. It solves so many of my UI grievances with Mate and similar VMs
