Thinking about trying out on this Thinkpad T15 for a change.

@selea My favorite. Been using Linux for 27 years. My first install was Red Hat Desktop 3.

@lscottspencer

Nice, I started with SuSE back in the days, and then just started to use Debian derivatives since 2004 and just have stuck to it.
No idea why really, just because it was convienient with .deb packages and most of the vendors distribute those.

@selea Fedora is rock solid. I actually prefer dnf to apt. And flatpak has been a game changer. If you give it a try, do let me know what you think.

@lscottspencer

Well, I have plenty of space and hardware to use flatpak - I tend to avoid it as much as possible anyway.
Well, there is always the opportunity to use docker or LXC nowadays

@lscottspencer

Oh btw, what is the real difference between "stock" fedora and silverblue?

@selea Huge. Sliverblue is a great idea. But, it's really more Server suited. Especially for now. Stick with Fedora Workstation.

@selea @lscottspencer
I think SilverBlue is meant as a desktop os, right? Fedora Core OS is intended for servers. I'm hoping to test SB on my daily driver soon. I love the idea, but I'm not sure if it will be too limiting. VSCode (or pick your favorite IDE) seems to be the biggest hurdle.

@thmscwlls @selea It is kinda. But, to me, it's just not ready for daily workstation use yet. Especially if a person wants an up and running desktop with little trouble. I love the concept and where they wanna go with it. I wouldn't direct anyone to it right now. Especially someone looking to move to Fedora from something else.

@lscottspencer @selea yeah, that makes sense! Definitely agree. Excited to see where it goes though.

@selea Then Workstation is what you want. Sliverblue is ambitious and I believe will be great one day. It's just not the best way to start using Fedora.
