Ah, just saw that Fedora Silverblue 36 is out of beta as of two days ago. (Comes with GNOME 42 – which is awesome.) 

Fedora Silverblue is an immutable OS that I’ve been using for a few weeks now alongside the excellent Distrobox tool that lets you run multiple distribution containers from terminal. Still finding my feet but love the stability and speed so far.

@aral that's an interesting concept...

@aral@mastodon.ar.al it still seems a bit incomplete... gnome software completely broke for me after upgrading v.v

@AlejandroP your base file system is read only, which means that you don't have your traditional package managers available to you (i.e. all your userspace apps are Flatpaks). Makes it harder to brick your system and makes system updates easier. SteamOS 3 works this way

@AlejandroP That the core OS is read-only. Like macOS. (Although on macOS, you don’t need to know that… which is how I hope it will eventually be on Silverblue.)

@aral
What's the advantage? I guess it's harder to mess up by semi-competent users (like myself), and by people wo deliberately try to, of course, but then there's probably a lot of stuff that needs to stay configurable, in oder to deal with varying hardware etc.

Also: Which parts constitute the "core"?
