@odi-3 That Silverblue is not yet an official edition does not imply
that it is Beta or something like that (these are two different things
at all) → the major point for you is that Silverblue is supported by
Fedora, even if it is not (yet) an official edition (Silverblue belongs
to the “editions that are supported but not yet a part of the official
Fedora editions”). Many people use Silverblue in “production”, which
means in their daily tasks/work as their main os.
However, I do not use Silverblue myself, but given your questions, I
suggest to open a related topic in ask.fedora
because there you will find several people around who use Silverblue in
their daily tasks and who could have valuable incentives for you (don’t
forget to add the silverblue tag to your topic). Maybe the existing Silverblue topics
are also a little indicative for you.
I´m Pjol and i spend my days working with sales in the tech/automation field with a side of software testing/qa for the same employer. My past 25 years with Linux has been casual and centered around Debian/Ubuntu since i used to self host stuff that was of interest to me at different times but stopped altogether several years ago due to lack of time and interest.
But now i have been using Linux on my laptop full time for a year and a half by this point since i needed to channel some energy on learning something “new” and linux caught my interest again. However this time as a desktop user so i tried different offerings before landing on Fedora a year ago and been really pleased with the experience so i have stuck with it trying to re-learn things as i go. I will say i have had a extremely stable experience so far so re-learning the more nitty gritty things is slower than anticipated, which is more than fine for me if i’m being honest.
Maybe time to switch over my desktop with nvidia to see how that plays out. Anyway.
Thanks to all involved (in whatever way that might be) with Fedora.
Hi Iam Miguel from Portugal, been using dos and windows since the 80s Linux was never my thing, but recently i got a chinese tablet pc Chuwi Hi 10x, it is a windows machine but runs slow AF and came with win 11 installed, to make it usable i tried Linux , Ubuntu does not work, Mint also bad, Chrome os also got no sound, but by some weird miracle everything worked correctly immediately after installing Fedora.
To learn how to use the system I also installed Fedora on my main computers, sometimes I do get stuck on some weird issue but Iam learning
I am Upanand from india. I completed my high school this year (2023) & going to start college soon. I started using Fedora last year and its been pretty great and I have been using Linux since 2020. I started with Ubuntu and it was fine but I prefer to have updated applications which was slow with Ubuntu as you know. I liked the Gnome DE but back then I didn’t use fedora because of vanilla Gnome, I thought it would be boring to use the plain Gnome. When I actually installed Fedora, I never thought that I would like vanilla Gnome as much as I do now. It was amazing even with the older icon theme for files and now the newer blue theme is even better. To me Fedora strikes a right balance with updated packages and stability. I hope to learn more about Linux to be able to contribute to Fedora in future.
Hi. My name is Ryan, and I’m from Manchester, UK. I’ve been using Fedora for about six months. I’m using Silverblue. Mostly using it for work and basic internet stuff (IRC, blogging, emails, etc). Previously using ChromeOS, with a brief bout of Windows 11. Loving Flatpaks, and the simplicity of GNOME. Nice to meet you all.
Nice to meet you all! I’m Robert - based out of Portland, OR in the US.
I’ve been a long time Fedora user (I was a kid when I remember switching from RHL to Fedora Core).
I am interested in how I can support the Community efforts and to find an outlet for my love of working in enterprise software - I was a B2E (business to employee) Product Manager for a long time and the love problems related to tooling and integration!
I’m on Matrix (@rowright:one.ems.host) and am excited to help jump in!
I have been using Linux for a while but never truly committed to learn the ins and outs. I have always gravitated towards fedora and I have recently installed it on all my devices. (Laptop and desktop)
Planning on settling into the fedora ecosystem so I can learn the ropes properly.
Looking forward to dipping my toes into the community aspect also.
I’m Martin, a physcisist and now Data Scientist and Software Engineer from Germany.
I came in contact with Linux via University (RWTH Aachen introducing students to Linux since the days of the typewriter xD).
Remembering just now: The first Linux I personally touched in my life must have been Scientific Linux (based on RHEL) in the RWTH physics facilites. So I came close to full circle here.
Since I’ve done my computing on Debian.
For whatever reason I never thought about, considered or understood Fedora in the slightest.
Recently heard Fedora is what Mr. Torvalds is using. Gave it a shot for a small project I had and … obviously Fedora made a large enough impression on me that I’m here now, giving it an honest try.
@rwright what kind of work is involved in product management? I’m trying to think of what some interesting teams could be for you to plug into but I’m not familiar enough with the discipline. Is it similar to project management?
The best way I can explain product management to folks is “falling in love with a problem, and ruthlessly experimenting and talking to end users to find the next best solution”. A lot of my previous work was around trying to experiment with feedback from employees in the Contact Center space in better ways to solve problems like “in a heavy productivity focused environment, how do you build engagement and personal development for employees”.
My background in that space took me into Design Thinking and ultimately Service Design worlds which I spend a lot of time practicing today! Making experiences better by focusing on the problem and the steps in the problem, where the solution you design may be replaced or isn’t the final product, it’s a common understanding and rallying around a issue.
My hope is to take some of that thinking into something in Fedora - maybe the Community Operations team and collaborate with folks!
Nice, Community Ops sounds like a great spot for that kind of contribution! I’ll also mention the design-team. While a lot of their work is focused on graphical design, part of it does touch on UX like what @duffy does. Just read your thread on updating a one stop shop for Fedora apps and it sounds great! Glad to have you!
@jflory7, we got someone else who’s interested in Community Operations!
