Back On Fedora Silverblue!

Hello, tech enthusiasts and Fedora fans! I’m excited to share with you my recent experience with Fedora Silverblue. I had tried it before but encountered some obstacles that prevented me from fully embracing it. However, I recently made the switch again, and it has been a game-changer.

One of the main reasons I chose Fedora Silverblue is its immutable operating system. This means the core system files cannot be modified or tampered with, ensuring maximum security and reliability. Additionally, Flatpaks has made managing my software stack much simpler and hassle-free.
Since switching to Fedora Silverblue, I’ve been impressed with its overall performance and responsiveness. The Gnome desktop environment provides a clutter-free workspace, allowing me to focus on my work and projects. The integrated Toolbox feature has also been a game-changer, providing a convenient way to manage development environments in separate containers.

I recommend trying Fedora Silverblue, whether you’re a developer, sysadmin, or tech enthusiast. In my upcoming blog posts, I’ll dive deeper into specific features and workflows that have improved my experience. Stay tuned for more exciting content!

Day #3 of Fedora Silverblue

By the third day of using Fedora Silverblue, I already discovered it wasn’t as easy to customize Gnome as in Fedora Workstation, or any other distro with a Gnome Desktop Environment. No matter what desktop environment I’m running, the first thing I always do is install a dark theme, either Adwaita-Dark, Arc Dark, or Greybird Dark, and the second thing I do is install papirus icon. With Gnome, you need to install Gnome Tweaks, if it is not already installed by default. With Fedora Workstation it’s just a simple sudo dnf install gnome-tweaks papirus-icon-theme, but with Silverblue instilling these apps requires you to use rpm-ostree instead of dnf.

Once installed, I was able to customize Gnome the way I like it! I’m still installing apps on my laptop, but so far I’m linking Silverblue so much I’ve installed it on a second laptop. Before you go thinking I’ve already made up my mind, I doubt it will stay on the second laptop long since Pop os 21.04 beta was just released, and I’m very excited to check out Cosmic!
