    Phoronix: Facebook's Linux Desktop Choice Is Fedora But Ramping Up CentOS Stream

    Among Facebook employees while they are mostly using Windows and macOS on their laptops/desktops, for those using Linux the primary choice has shifted from Ubuntu to Fedora but they have begun ramping up CentOS Stream too...

      Btrfs is default on Fedora Workstation since 33 so it makes sense its usage keeps on increasing considering the benefits. Soon to be release Fedora 34 Beta Workstation gained some performances and felt snappier.

        CentOS? Hopefully Facebook can convince the packagers to put back the Plasma desktop and have more up-to-date packages. As it is, CentOS's packages on every distribution release is painfully old, and are even older than Debian. At least Debian's packages are up-to-date at the point of the first freeze, and aren't all that outdated by the time the distribution is released.

        Not having Plasma (I always install both Gnome 3 and Plasma) and up-to-date packages at release is a deal-breaker.

          What is this BS? Fedora allows to use all the native/unix filesystems supported by the kernel. You're free to use ext2/ext3/ext4/jfs/xfs/whatever.

          It just defaults to btrfs during installation which can be changed with a few mouse clicks.

                Thread cleanup done. Qaridarium really derailed it.

                However, due to broken forum cache it may take up to 2 days for the off-topic posts to completely disappear.

                  OK lets see if this Fedora topic has nothing to do with politics. have some high leven information for you:

                  Let's make mistakes and learn together. Open sourcerer. Intersectional/Black feminist. #BlackLivesMatter"

                  a member of the Fedora Council

                  "Black Lives Matter. Saying this does not mean that other lives do not matter. It should not be controversial to say this. If I say Chromium updates matter, it does not mean that other Fedora packages do not matter, it means that a Chromium update is needed to fix this giant pile of severe security vulnerabilities, here, today, now:
                  In making that analogy, I do not intend to trivialize BLM. In no way do I mean to compare the lives of people to a silly web browser update. People are infinitely important than software. But since I'm here to push this software update out, I am also choosing to say clearly and unambiguously that Black Lives Matter.
                  Open Source proves that many voices, many contributions, together can change the world. It depends on it. This is my voice."

                  current Fedora Project leader:

                    and you know some people avoid writing here because they know they will be censored and they also avoid writing here because they know if they do they will be mobbed and harrazed by the Left/BLM people.

                    so lets see what kind of person you really are after my high level intel in the last post hit your brain.
