A Bit


What benefits do I get with 4-5 different distributions, being one human managing and orchestrating it all? Turns out, no benefit. Just pain.

Ever since the whole re-licensing from Hashicorp, I been looking at what to self-host. I started with rethinking what's the OS I'm using. And why.

So after thinking about the choices, I finally settled on a victor; Ubuntu Core.


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.
