What operating system(s) do you mostly use on desktop, if any?
@schlink For me definitely. On my #Lenovo #X230 it is perfectly snappy, on my desktop, which is technically the more capable machine by far, it is a bit sluggish (mostly due to gfx card being too new). I tend to use the #debian templates (more familiar) and uninstall a lot of preinstalled cruft (via #ansible, not familiar enough with #saltstack), I also use the #i3wm desktop, which helps with the speed. Not a day where I've missed "regular" #GNU / #Linux.
@lpwaterhouse wow that’s fascinating! My Oryx Pro has a 4-year-old NVDIA card in it… wonder how it’ll do. I’m also serious enough about learning Qubes to buy a thinkpad for the purpose. Good to hear it runs smoothly on a 230. How much RAM?
@stux I've been using EndeavourOS for more than two years now, if memory serves me right, with either the Plasma Desktop or i3-gaps
@stux I also use iPad OS (iOS) but mainly for garageband. Currently saving/prepping to move to Logic. I actually really love garageband but Logic's feature set is so tempting.
@kosama Mobile OS do not count in this one
And iOS is still mobile I think 😇 even though its not really it's too limit I guess
@stux yea it's true. I jailbreak to unlock the full capabilities (even though those are limited). I like moving content through WebDAV on iOS 10 jailbroken but I don't think that's officially supported yet iOS 15 (I'll find out soon) . It's honestly a shame how locked down it is, but maybe someday it'll change. That or Linux Mobile Operating Systems will catch up.
@firstname.lastname@example.org I accidentally tapped macOS too.... I only use Linux on bare metal, with FreeBSD and Plan9 VMs.
@stux Windows because gamer, but generally the first thing I start after boot is a Xubuntu VM where I actually get things done.
I think MS Teams might work fine with Wine (https://winehq.org) since it's just an Electron app.
For Genshin.... It actually can run with Wine-based programs but you have to turn off the anti-cheat (which def gonna make you get banned). You will have to use a VM for the anti-cheat to run nicely, even with that, you will need to set Windows to not report that the VM is not running in a VM and rely on Hoyoverse's unclear anticheat policy on VMs.
For BattleEye-based games, you will get a straight up ban for using VMs, EAC also does a similar thing (idk if it's a ban or not), but idk about Hoyoverse's anticheat.
The safest way is to use an Android emulator like Waydroid, but since Genshin Impact mobile doesn't build for x86_64 but only for ARM, make sure to get the Android 12 edition instead of the default Android 11 for the ARM compatibility tool.
