There's been a huge amount of talk recently about switching to Linux for gaming, thanks to the challenge from Linus Tech Tips where two of their people tried the full-switch but it didn't go so well for Linus and Pop!_OS. Now, System76 are trying to improve.

Fedora just refuses to removes protected packages. The only way to unprotected a package is to delete a file with its name in /etc/dnf/protected.d/ sort of directory.

Really cool, it’s a shame, though, that such an important figure has to go through that in order for such an obvious bug to be (not quite, though) fixed.

What IDE would you like instead and what’s wrong with vscode, apart from it being an Electron application? Did you know there’s vscodium as Free alternative?

i’m quite an unapologetic zealot when it comes to keeping microsoft’s claws out of linux.

and you’re right the electron aspect isn’t ideal.

but you’re also right, what is a good replacement? tbh i think this shows a bit of a gap which i really hope can be filled with something appropriate soon.

i’m a big fan of geany, but definitely understand it doesn’t fill the use case for alot of users.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
