    It’s complicated and I have a few reasons.

    1. Last time I used it, Fedora’s updates were too unstable. I twice got updates breaking my system setup. For example, with openSUSE it happened only once (recent broken Mesa update). Also openSUSE updates surprisingly feel more stable than Fedora ones.
    2. I don’t like Red Hat. Even though I understand that open-source projects are complex and I should separate developers from their software, that doesn’t change my opinion on Red Hat.
    3. This problem stems from the previous ones. Using Fedora I feel like a beta-tester for future Red Hat projects and especially RHEL.

    Keep in mind, that I last used Fedora on versions 37–38 and things might have changed since.


  • From OpenSUSE there’s also leap micro. Never used it, but maybe worth looking at.

    I heard of it, but it seems more server/development focused, rather than desktop.

    For instance, I could never get used to dnf, but it’s largely irrelevant on an atomic distro anyways.

    100% agree, dnf is a bummer. Maybe I’ll give Kinoite a shot, as it has many differences with “vanilla” Fedora.

    I use KDE, because it runs perfectly on wayland and covers 100% of my needs.
    Budgie looks very promising now and I want to explore it further. Also LXQT is perfect for older devices or if you want a KDE, but simplier.



  • fooyin is a music player built around customisation. It offers a growing list of widgets to manage and play your local music collection. It’s extendable through the use of plugins and many widgets make use of FooScript to offer an even deeper level of control.

    Audio playback is supported by FFmpeg alongside multiple options for output including ALSA and PipeWire, with more to come.
