Hi Fedora Community,
I’m fairly new to Linux and I’ve recently jumped in to Silverblue 30 as my daily driver and it has been a pleasant experience so far.
I was able to setup my web development tools pretty easily (with podman replacing docker).
Flatpak apps also works seamlessly with the exception for code editors/IDE’s which needs to use some of the host’s binaries. Though using ‘flatpak-spawn’ does the trick for me, it would be great if this limitation is addressed (If it is already addressed, please enlighten me ).
I also encountered an issue with Flatpak where some newly installed app (from Flathub) does not open unless I logout and login back.
I also had another issue when it comes to updates. I have already disabled the automatic updates in Gnome Software but It seems that updates are still being automatically downloaded in the background whenever I boot up. I see “Transaction: upgrade (download only)” from ‘rpm-ostree status’. I know I can do rpm-ostree cancel but it would be great if I can turn it off completely.
Nonetheless, Silverblue has been great as my daily driver.
I really do think that this is the future of Linux Desktop because it is “Beginner Friendly” in my opinion.
Looking forward to more sweet features in the future!
