In more recent years, Linux distributions have become quite interesting. The hypothesis of immutable Linux have gone from pure thought, to full throttled theory. There exists a plethora of options out in the wild. All from different companies, distributions, and communities.
Now while many options exists, for me, I been debating on three. Dive so deep I hit bedrock with Nix and NixOS. Accept Kubernetes as the one true OS through Talos. Or drink the orange glowing Kool-Aid of snaps in Ubuntu Core. Bare with me. There's logic in these.
Tools helping you absorb information are necessities now. Not simply gathering information. Gone are the days you can use only RSS and call it a day. Almost every service under the sun wants to notify you about 14 times a day. Only to make sure you are forever spending your time on them. Mailbrew is the tool I been using to stop the onslaught.
Never is a project started from 'just' the init. You have to take care of packages you use, CI tools for builds you make, database hookups, development tooling, and countless other parts. All of this takes time. With nix flakes, you may be able to start with all the main components you need immediately. Giving way to actually developing that app you been itching to build, without the days/weeks adventure getting everything you need just right.
I been recently experimenting in using a different tool besides bitwarden for my password management needs. Nothing wrong with bitwarden, but it is always a good idea to look at other products to get a feel of what could be improved or what you can do to find ways around certain features.
A keyboard for software developers, system administrators, code junkies, writers, human being, and possibly cats is utmost important in this age. Do yourself a favor and get yourself a decent keyboard. Possibly if you read on, that may just be Keyboardio's Atreus.
If you ever heard the phrase 'write once and run everywhere' then you know there's definitely difficulties in writing for multi architectures. Web Assembly may be the actual reality of running everywhere with one target.
