linux in a nutshell Show more
YOU: god this sucks, linux always breaks for no reasonME: have you tried debianYOU: yeah but it was like, boringME: yes. operating systems probably should be boring.
@diodelass @drwho I have tried Debian. It broke for no reason. 😩 (Specifically, after a month or two it decided not to do any updates anymore, which is what always happens to me with Linux).
@klintron @diodelass What were you running it on?
@drwho An Asus laptop. I think, IIRC, a repo broke and blocked all other updates even after I removed it from every text file I could find. Has happened to me every time I try to use Linux on anything. Last Time was Debian rolling circa 2015.
@drwho It seems to be a pretty common problem.
@drwho Pretty common on Ubuntu and Mint anyway. Maybe it’s an APT thing? I dunno.
@klintron That is really, really weird. I've never heard of that happening before.
