IF you read my entire sentence you will see that I talk about FOSS OS and I say “PopOS is probably not)” the brackets ends and I talk about Fedora, the entire sentence after the brackets is about Fedora, the Nvidia drivers cannot be installed by default in Fedora you need to first enable additional repo unlike other LinuxOS.
I am non native English speaker so wanted to explain this in my language after a bracket ends so the point of the sentence and another idea continues, maybe in English it is the same maybe not not sure.
2disbetter Siddy2408 Gavaudan ok I did not have time to read all comments but to the idea I will stay on as reader and avoid being active in discussions since my non native language barrier might be a problem.
I only mentioned the sentence (quoted above) and noticed it since it was removed from the site today.
We can debate that issue but its pointless I delete pureos from my phone and my game rig, have not used it in months so I will avoid talking about PureOS since I don’t really use it any more and I am not up to date with it.
Fedora has been and will be my main and core OS, my second gaming home OS I mostly distro hop so I maybe one day I will return to PureOS and will use it everyday, but that is not this today or this year.
But I would value if in return people to avoid stuff they don’t know about like other OS in Linux.
someone said “Fedora is likely 99% FLOSS however it will more than likely not the entirely FLOSS”, Fedora unlike other Linux will not let you install a driver or steam or vlc or even mp3 without enabling extra repo, most linux distro’s I know have VLC and steam in repository or already installed, Fedora even has a custom kernel system and is not using the mainline Linux kernel so avoid using non foss software, like certain drivers.
I only mentioned this since I am part of many Linux communities and in the past 10 years the main problem in Linux in the communities is “attacking” each other, one community attacking another community this distro is bad, we are better because (Speaking in general not for a specific Community). It is good that Linux has so many communities people can choose from but it doesn’t help when we talk about other OS we know nothing about Like for example People saying Fedora is not FOSS or will not be in the future, I know it is since I use it daily for 10 years and that part is constant and I have contributed to Fedora and will continue to do so.
With Many Linux users sadly having closed mind set to other distro’s projects like systemd and flatpaks, snaps and appimages and all the ideas about trying to unify Linux will be met with resitance and the people who will start that mostly out of passion will quit the idea or project cause they are creators not politicians (I am speaking from personal experience about many projects of mine that were killed of before they even start) I am especially sad about my idea for a local AI assistant and was never accepted cause non of the linux communities read the details they called it a spy tool and quit it, even if the AI was working OFFLINE I still use the app but this is one example of a great project that I spend over 1 year of developing and no one knows about it or will use it and I personally removed the code cause I was sick and tired of the “spy” comments.
I have similar sad stories where I co authored indexing apps gaming hub apps etc, same faith, authors quit hobby projects since they got tired of people not valuing their free work and free contribution to FOSS.
I have said this in many forums even quit few (like certain arch based linux distro) for constant attacks to other distro’s and unrealistic glorification to a god like status to their own distro, it helps the distro but hurts linux.
**My weekends starts today and after that I have a r&D sea travel for a week maybe more, so not sure when I will be able to read or reply to any future posts, but I would respect what PureOS is doing and will avoid commenting since I don’t use it any more and I am not up to date on it, I expect same in return for Fedora
(since I assume most people who comment about fedora have not used in a while or ever and have second hand knowledge by reading what someone posted on some forum or online article) the main reason I avoid non STEM forum in general since it is not exact science and both sides can be right in unending discussion.
Edit: if you don’t like something if Fedora say it in Fedora Forum, for example I don’t like something about pueis say it at forum for PureOS
All the best to all here, I hope this community grows I like hope same for all other Linux Communities.
