Yep, I was going to say capybaras but also anacondas, although they are hard to spot, but I recall there’s one in Butantan Institute, in São Paulo city.

Distrobox is a god send tool for using AUR stuff in any distro.

I think you’ll like an editor called micro.

There are other reasons, but if I had to point only one word: containers.

I use Debian and was using Arch in a Distrobox to have some AUR apps (PyCharm, DBeaver, Pulsar Editor and a few more). It’s nice and I recomend you to try and have fun with it. Undoubtedly, Distrobox is a game changer - however, I believe it’s a better tool to set a development environment, with the distro and packages used in the production environment. Nowadays, just to install random software on Debian, I’ve been using Pacstall - try it as well. In the end, I think it integrates better. For example, if I click on a link in a Markdown doc in Pulsar in a box, either it will not open the link if I don’t have another browser within the box or I’ll have to implement a workaround to open the host’s browser.

Yes, I use Debian and Pacstall works well on it. From their Wiki, you can see that you can target incompatible versions if applicable - I saw it in one app, incompatible with Bullseye but compatible with Bookworm and Ubuntu (maybe git-delta, if I remember well). Also, I have a small contribution to the project as well.

Just a honest question: if I install Thunderbird using distrobox, can I define it as my default browser? If I click in a mailto link will it work?

I’m using flatpak extensively but I’m looking for faster start-up times. Anyway, thanks for the suggestion.

Distro hoppers, how do you manage your config files?

I am currently trying to keep track of my config files in a repo to be able to get the configa back together easily if/when I change distro, but I am not sure if that’s the best way or if I should be using some tool to help me since I some programs keep preferences in other directories other then $HOME (at least I think so)....

I manage my config files with RCM, this way: fedoramagazine.org/managing-dotfiles-rcm/

But I use it for share my dotfiles between my home and my work computer. For distro hopping only, I have my /home mounted in a secondary HD, so it’s never formatted.

For the config files in other paths, I keep a log of everything I changed in Dropbox and then I redo. I admit that this may not be the best solution, but the others works good.

Personally, I use Debian, but it’s a different approach from Fedora. My suggestion for you is to try OpenSUSE Tumbleweed. It’s a rolling release, which means bleeding edge software as Fedora, it’s RPM based and it’s easy to rollback in case of an update breaks something. As I said, not my type of distro (I want 0 breaks), but I used OpenSUSE once while distro hopping and it’s a good distro.

My computer is a Ryzen with AMD GPU as well. Drivers are embedded on kernel, so any distro should fit. Flatpak works fine too, but of course, you will need to install it and add Flathub - simple, but needed ( flathub.org/setup/openSUSE ). Steam runs fine, if I remember well. Blender I don’t know, I never used.

Linux Mint Debian Edition is very lightweight and easy to use.
