    What, you use puppet/ansible on your desktop?
    I hate wasting any time setting up anything, for personal machines I use BTRFS + btrbk + ansible for simple automation of partition creation and grub reinstall in new machines in the last 3~4 years, simple and effective, nothing missed. I let more complex uses of ansible + docker for machines I manage in my job.

    Uhh ok, so I take it you don't use Ubuntu then? Because you said that Ubuntu Gnome wasn't good for you by default, you had to make changes to that as well for you to be happy which would make you a bit of a hypocrite

    Sure, KDE is very configurable. Gnome does this for me by default. Like I said earlier, on my workstation I don't have time nor the desire to muck with the config every time I set up my system. I reserve that for my 'fun' with the Amiga. That's a case of 'how cool can I make this 25+ year old system look?' It's less fun when you have multiple gigahertz systems and gigabytes of ram.

I just prefer no docks being on the screen to take up space where I could slide another terminal and watch output, or a chat program under the windows to see when someone replies to a message (have to turn popups off, they're horrible to pop up on the screen when you're sharing it during a video conference).

    Yeah, I keep using few days old version for now. Nevertheless, in the long run this doesn't matter, as Wayland support will be available in stable channel and distributions packages.

    Nice news. Even if i use Xfce. Good that a public focused company gets involved in a DE.

    It was a long and hard road to get there, but I think things are now set up in a better way so we don't get ourselves in situations like that to begin with. It's amazing what some face-to-face meetings can accomplish.
