hi! - JoshuaRLi - 09-04-2019

hello! not the type of person to participate too actively in forums, but thought i'd at least make an introduction now that i recently finalized my desktop showcase, which i will be discussing in another thread.

i basically started programming in college (late 2015), and happily moved from windows to ubuntu circa early 2017, then discovering r/unixporn late 2017 led me to become quite interested in removing/cleansing myself of as much abstraction and magic as reasonably and pragmatically possible.

i moved to arch linux circa early 2018 and it's still my daily driver mainly due to pragmatism, despite having tried many alternatives. although, alpine linux is slowly becoming more viable for me, and is in my eyes quite ideal! mainly, i'm waiting for more modern gcc (actually, looks like alpine 3.9.3 updated to gcc 8.3.0, which is super awesome), rust toolchain -> firefox, and some other stuff.

actually, i'm quite excited to possibly move to alpine in the future on the desktop. aside from musl and openrc, the value proposition includes a chance for me to migrate from X to wayland, also I really want to start contributing to alpine. i love bspwm and currently, the trouble of migrating to wayland on arch isn't worth it at the moment.

but i digress, and want to keep this short, so nice to meet you all! see me in my desktops thread. :)

edit: thread is here!

Welcome to nixers.

yeah, this is something i have yet to dabble in. i have very briefly tried some *bsd, but it's just too much of a paradigm shift to be worth it to me at the moment.
