37:21 Wrap Up
Well that’s pretty awesome! But what is Linus talking about with Fedora? If he wants to do WAN show on Linux he probably should use Fedora just for Pipewire. Plus it has a pretty recent Kernel, easy to install, dnf, and a whole ton of online support. I don’t use Fedora myself but I think he would have a good experience as a new user.
But Gentoo was an option in the poll? haha!
I watched a couple videos later, Luke mentions they use Fedora lots but they don’t like the hats.
I’m actually really surprised by this. I wonder if this is due to the snap integration?? I presume he’s on Kubuntu as well. I use Mint and this is never an issue but Mint goes out of its way to get rid of all traces of snaps. That could be the difference there, especially if snaps are updated in the background.
I’ve seen a couple of episodes now, yeah kubuntu seems likely, love the “what is Kate?” quote. How would anyone know without finding out. So what’s Luke using? Could be zorin or elementaryos? No idea so far from what I have seen. I’d laugh if it were fedora and the other comment was just to throw us off.
I found this so annoying when I was new to KDE. Little did he know that would give everything away to regular Linux users. If you search for “text” in the KDE menu Kate shows up with the description “Advanced text editor”. So it’s not terribly hard to figure out what things are.
