Wednesday 15th of March 2017 09:11:07 PM

Would it be reasonable to run Windows in a virtual machine with something like Ableton Live and a punch of VSTs? I don't need anything fancy like external midi support, just some cut and copy music production.

Wednesday 15th of March 2017 06:09:42 PM

Been having lots of trouble with systemd on arch and debian so i migrated from arch to void and changed debian to deuvan(didnt have time to replace it so i just backed up /home and switched). I wrote down all the other distros i was considering after switching from arch taught it might come in handy to someone else. Any other recommendation are welcome.

Distro Notes Void linux Gentoo Funtoo Debian Comes with systemd by default but can be removed and replaced easily Slackware Alpine Linux Deuvan Debian but without systemd out of the box, not finished yet Crux PCLinuxOS Arch I tried to remove systemd but i couldnt, apparently its possible though submitted by /u/spoonthefoon

Reddit: Why use a tiling window manager over a floating one?

Wednesday 15th of March 2017 06:07:40 PM

I'm currently using a floating one, and while I do sometimes wish I could 'snap' the windows into a corner or side of the screen, I feel like tiling WM's take up precious screen space whether you like it or not, and the lack of being able to resize the window really kills it for me. So, my question is, why use a tiling WM over a floating one, other than for minimalism and less dependencies?
