Fedora getting plenty of love lately. Giving it a shot, installed with default GNOME DE and added Cinnamon cause it looks better.

Fedora getting plenty of love lately.

I have been playing around with OpenSuse Tumbleweed and Fedora 36

Tumbleweed is just meh, stock KDE and nothing special, only thing working for it is that it's a rolling distro so always latest packages, zypper is not that fast compare to pacman

Fedora 36 I like, will switch my laptop to Fedora, but going with KDE Plasma, dnf + rpmfusion and you pretty much get all apps, I like dnf

I am happy with Manjaro/pacman, I just want to get familiar with an rpm based system

so after this I will be familiar with Debian based systems, Arch based systems and Red Hat based systems

still think that Pop Os is the most stable distro out there, and pacman the best package manager

plom check out this app called KDE Connect, it's by the KDE folks but can be installed in any distro and in any desktop environment

it connects an android phone to the desktop, transfers files, can see the phone notifications on desktop or pc notifications on phone, calls screening, see battery percentage info, send sms from desktop and a bunch of other features, it's awesome

just run the kde connect app from the Play Store on phone and run the app on desktop, both using the same network connection and pair them

PopOs! is a great distro, I like that its a very minimal stock setup unlike Ubuntu. The Nvidia support is great too.
