Jorge Castro, a developer of the project, talks about why Image-based (immutable) systems are way better. They are ready to use today, for most people. Changes to the system can be done in a centralized location, like their NVIDIA images, and you can be sure every Client has exactly the same image. If something breaks, you can reset it! And its also way safer, as you have a clean system. Apps cant install what they want. You can easily revert all your changes with `rpm-ostree reset`. Btw. you can still install as many packages as you want with `rpm-ostree install` and even add COPRs and other repos like RPMFusion (included in ublue). Feel free to ask questions! Ublues enhanced Kinoite image is what I use. Minimal layers, awesome experience!

Haumea can now load non-Nix files with its new matcher interface
Haumea is a filesystem-based module system for Nix that allows you to import Nix files without any boilerplate. Haumea v0.2.2 was just released with a new [book]( and support for [matchers](, which allows you to load non-Nix files. Diff: Changelog: Repository:

Regata OS
Hey Linux. I try to install Regata OS on my POP OS pc, but the pc vil not boot from the iso i have downloaded on a flash drive. What have i doing wrong

What’s that one feature you liked so much while distrohopping that you want it by default in all distros?
I have always been discovering new things about Linux distros while distro hopping. And when I get something I really like, I just copy the package name and make sure I install it in every distro I use in the future. Let me start: 1. Clipboard manager (Gpaste) 2. KDE connect

Plasma 6 looks to be shaping up quite nicely already! Some really nice quality of life style updates, and I'm quite shocked (though the reasoning makes sense) to see them moving to double-click actions by default instead of single-click.

Do you want to keep your home directory tidy and free from clutter? If so, xdg-ninja is here to help. This shell script checks your $HOME for unwanted files and directories, and tells you if it's possible to move them to a more appropriate location. The configurations for xdg-ninja come from the [Arch Wiki page on XDG_BASE_DIR](, antidot, and other users. The script is easy to use, and you can run it either manually or with Homebrew. If you're using nix, you can run the following command: `nix run github:b3nj5m1n/xdg-ninja`. xdg-ninja's dependencies include your favorite POSIX-compliant shell, and `jq` for parsing the JSON files. Additionally, you can use optional programs like `glow` for rendering Markdown in the terminal. You can configure xdg-ninja by defining a program and a list of files and directories that this program puts into your $HOME directory. For each file or directory, you can specify if it can be moved, and if so, you can provide instructions on how to accomplish that. To learn more about xdg-ninja, visit the project's GitHub repository. Keep your $HOME clean with xdg-ninja!

Any interesting approaches to package management (Linux or not)? besides Portage and Nix.
Gentoo's Portage and NixOS' Nix are both interesting takes on package management. Both are powerful and open up a ton of flexbility to the user, but still do a lot of work for you. Are there any other similarly interesting approaches to the package management problem?


Traditional Unix Permissions
My blog post diving into traditional Unix permissions. The article explains how the permissions system works, explores some command line utilities to set and interact with permissions, and discusses how to use traditional permissions to harden your system's security. I hope you like it. I would appreciate any constructive feedback!

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

    Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
