Comments are of course very welcome :D
@vlkrs Maybe I have to give alacritty another shot. I've tried it some time ago and didn't really like it.
@raichoo It sort of grew on me by accident... give it a few days
@raichoo i'd Like to have a "I just want to see the results" option
@deFrisselle Yeah, I could only have four choices in the poll so I went with the obvious ones. Dragonfly is REALLY interesting, once they get proper wayland support I'll start doing some hacking there as well :)
@raichoo I couldn't help but pick all 4, but in order of preference:
4. DragonFly BSD
Dfly is last only because I haven't played much with it on actual hardware. I need to change that, and doing so might change that order.
@raichoo Also your poll might be a bit biased since bsd.network is run by OpenBSD fellows and quite some devs and users hang around here.
@_xhr_ Not really biased, since I was asking about the fediverse specifically :)
@raichoo My personal Fediverse filter bubble overlaps heavily with bsd persons :P
@raichoo I almost switched my Webserver from FreeBSD to openbsd because of the newer pf syntax ;-) but I am just starting in the bsd-world, so better not switch between them too early...
@sebastian Good choice, just play around with the systems for a little bit and find what feels the most comfortable for you. :)
@raichoo If I am running a *BSD then I plan to run OpenBSD (or sometimes LibertyBSD). The reason I do this is because OpenBSD seems to be more mature at the moment.
Plus, if I don’t need an application or software (especially proprietary) then I don’t want it. OpenBSD is fairly KISS and makes this an easy task.
The only reason I currently run Debian-based OSes a lot is because application documentation is a lot better.
Plus, Rust applications aren’t fully working on OpenBSD.
@K0nrad Interesting, for any specific reasons?
@raichoo Yes, primarily for HAMMER.
@K0nrad HAMMER is really one of the things that interest me the most when it comes to #DragonflyBSD, sadly I think that documentation is pretty lacking, especially on the HAMMER2 side. Is there any good read on it apart from the manpages. Manpages are a good reference, but a nice introduction with a couple of examples would be a good starter. Played around with HAMMER1 years ago and liked it, but I'd like to know more.
@raichoo The only thing I know of is the mailing list (and archives). Not very helpful, I know. People on the freenode irc channel are generally nice, though.
@K0nrad Yeah, I would honestly prefer reading an article than asking my way through tbqh.
@raichoo running a bsd is very exotic nowadays. I used to have a BSD Server (freeBSD) 17 years ago (only for my personal stuff and some experimental things); then I had to work with solaris (which was cool!) and HPUX (wich sucked). Today I live in a windows world and I have a virtual server with a linux to host my mail etc.
The more I read those BSD related toots the more I think I should give it a try again... thanks for the survey!
@esopriester It depends, FreeBSD is still used quite a lot in the wild, but nobody is making much of a fuss about it. Anyway, running it on a laptop is certainly a bit exotic. I fully admit that, but I'm happy with that decision :)
