            Honestly speaking, I don't know what happened these past two releases of gnone, for some reason it literally doesn't work anymore on any of my computers, and on my laptop it throws kernel panics constantly.
            Although fedora works somewhat well for some reason, knowing that fedora is extremely bugged.

          wwut? the dgx and a/h100 run on Linux. in fact you probably can't use anything else if you want to use their mesh/interconnects. it's just that their proprietary drivers just work. As long as you use Ubuntu, which is usually the most supported distro by nvidia, it truly just works. everything from GPU containers, to nvlink, to vgpus work perfectly. But they are a shitshow if you use a rolling distro with kernel updates.

          but people are running a company, their livelihoods depend on shipping something that just works. nobody cares about ideology when you're just trying to make sure that your users can use your product.

            I wish that were true, but without the bandaid support of pipewire its just isn't. Working purely with ALSA is a pain for latency and consistency.
            Window's and OSX's audio stacks are also shit, but for completely different reasons each as well.
            Its kind of crazy how audio was a solved fricking issue in the 00s, and it got all sorts of fricked in the 2010s. The best audio stack has to be XP's, in part because a lot of it was left to the device driver, less so the OS it self, and if you had quality made gear you can still get the lowest latency audio on XP over anything else today, still.

            Literally everything just werks. Even shit like running FLStudio in Wine, I'm able to get consistent 6ms audio without even using the custom Wine ASIO driver. If you use pipewire's JACK compatibility, you can get it down to 3-4ms of latency, but that you'll need to use native JACK compatible apps with.
            Using pure ALSA with a DAW in Wine gave me about 33ms for the best latency possible and it still would shit it self with audio pops at times.
            I'm even just using an old version thats in the Ubuntu 22.04 repository, and it still that much better then using the god awful non-sense that was pulseaudio.
            Reality is, ALSA does a poor job handling anything in realtime nativly. You actually get significantly better results with middleware oddly enough. Its funny, because its the exact opposite issue you face in Windows. You use ASIO drivers specifically to bypass as much of the the Window's audio stack as one can.

    Feels good to be a Slackware user. Patrick was one of the first people to flat out reject GNOME and it will never be implemented on his distro as long as he lives.

    The only way to fight back against this is to support Linux distos that completely REJECT GNOME compatibility. It's not enough to use a different WM. The Wayland and GNOME shills keep infiltrating everything like a fricking moss.

    But there are a number of distros that flat out reject GNOME.

    GNOME is absolute garbage and yet the only thing I can find usable on linux.
    Plasma is unstable, boasts about features but lacks some, and there is just no way to make it look semi decent. Padding is just all over the place.
    XFCE would be sort of alright, but there's no gayland support. Cinnamon and MATE have that problem too. Cinnamon is also fairly broken in regards to how it handles my displays.
    I considered using Hyprland but I'm not into basic window managers all that much
    All I do is hope and cope with GNOME
