Yesterday I wrote that I’m planning to migrate to Fedora Silverblue in the future. One step towards this is finding a solution to the problem that VirtualBox, which I use to run Windows in a VM, doesn’t work on Silverblue. Today I found out that it isn’t a problem at all. All I had to do was installing Gnome Boxes, creating a new VM and selecting the .vdi file from VirtualBox.
Some weeks ago I stumbled across Fedora Silverblue again. I already heard about that project before but never thought about trying it and also didn’t really understand it’s concept. After I researched more about the project, I was fascinated by the concept of an immutable base system and running almost everything either as Flatpaks or in Containers. That idea of a container based Desktop system was in my head for a long time already, but Silverblue seemed like the perfect implementation of that.
Visual Studio Code is an awesome text editor. It is in fact my favorite one. I use it for writing blog posts, I use it for looking at code (although I prefer JetBrains IDEs for actual coding) and I use it whenever I need a text editor. What I really like is the plugin system. There are plugins for almost everything and you also get recommended addons for the file you currently look at (probably based on the filetype).
This blog is not hosted on Netlify and Cloudflare anymore. It seems like I’m spending more time for the architecture of my blog then the actual content. But the tasks I did the last days should actually make this blog more solid. I want to reduce my dependency on “free” services like Netlify or Cloudflare that bring a great basic set of features and limits for free use, but require you to pay a lot of money when you reach that limits or need more custom features.
I just added a blogroll to my website. You can find it here. What is a blogroll? It is a list with links to other blogs I read myself and can recommend to my readers. But this is just the beginning. I would like to hear more recommendations for blogs (you can also send me a link to your own blog). Ping me on Twitter, the fediverse or send me a message via my contact form.
