What *NIX camp are you in? Hopefully this will be big so please boost so we can get as many votes as possible
@xj9 a true hero among all the others
@beegrrl xbps like the true men
@astheroth i'm not a man sooooooooo I use FreeBSD Like a real UNIX guru
It's close between Deb and Source based. I voted Arch. I haven't tried BSD though.
@masterofthetiger please do try FreeBSD. It's great
@beegrrl Guix and Arch, so I'm in the source camp 🙂
@beegrrl are we counting macOS as a BSD
@VyrCossont yes because it's like 40% FreeBSD source code, but in all other senses I refuse to call it anything other than a bastardized BSD
@beegrrl Would be BSD, but it's got none of the desktop stuff. (Which makes total sense!) So, deb, I guess.
Although I do use OS X too, that's a BSD...
@IceWolf but both FreeBSD and OpenBSD have desktops and dbus, but lack any features requiring systemd (so basically this means GNOME is semi broken and they have to remove stuff to get it to build. See https://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/x11-wm.html the steps for OpenBSD are similar
@beegrrl Mine is missing https://docs.slackware.com/slackware:package_management 😥
@joeyh vote bsd
@beegrrl All of the above ;)
@beegrrl arch (btw)
@beegrrl BSD and also Manjaro Linux (Arch based) ATM. Might get boring and go back to Ubuntu again, it's the macOS of Linuxen, it Just Works.
@beegrrl I voted *BSD even though I do run Fedora and Slackware mainly on the Linux side. I guess Debian as well since I have OSMC running on a Pi2 and Pi0w.
[X] All computers are broken :[
@beegrrl multiple options FTW ;-)
@beegrrl why do you put arch with source based ?? arch is a binary distribution (with .xz packages)
@beegrrl > that many archers
@beegrrl Arch isn't "source based", that's only its AUR.
you can allow multiple votes, i am in deb an rpm and bsd
@beegrrl eww I have to be lumped in Ubuntu and friends :(
My rpm folks aren't voting here .... @beegrrl
@beegrrl None of the above? Slackware isn't source-based, per se.
@beegrrl where's Nix and Guix?
@beegrrl nice poll, would be nice to know if the *BSD people are also "source based". I'm pretty much 100% "sourceBSD" these days.
@dch i like FreeBSD and it's pkg system. The ports tree is nice but my CPU gets too hot
@dch this is a yikes
@beegrrl Debian Does Dallas
@beegrrl Was formerly a Whonix user too...well that's Debian-based also!
@beegrrl voted rpm but I use equal number of rpm and deb systems. It's just my deeply entrenched old beliefs that rpm is better. (They're just my beliefs mind you, not trying to start a religious war!)
Ironically for work I have to use Windows and Mac so majority of time lately there :(
@zladuric oof, I prefer .rpm systems but that's because all the major ones aren't broken hacked together systems like most of the Debianoids. That being said though, debian is really nice
Kinda uses all. just depends on what pc i am using atm.
@dym .Appimage will be the death of me
@beegrrl it just works ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
@dym it does just werk, but I prefer a more traditional UNIX experience where everything just werks and I don't have to download my software from a sketchey website
@beegrrl installing 50 dependencies each of which can screw up your entire setup sure is fun on arch
@dym simple solution: don't use arch
@beegrrl that's why i don't anymore.
debian/ubuntu have the least amount of pain.
A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
