Fedora 33 has Landed on my Desktop :)

Hopefully, this will be the last distro-hop for me (NOT!). I liked Pop!_OS a lot but had a dream for a long time to not be using an Ubuntu-based distro and instead go with a more open free distro. Fedora out of the box is all about using free/libre applications. Risking being a victim of the well-known saying that “the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence”, there I went anyway.

The Final Switch to Linux

In 2005 I made the switch from Windows XP to Mac OS X. My experiences with it were refreshing. The interface was well designed and ease of use was great compared to what I was used to with Windows XP. At the time I was looking for anything more enjoyable or easier to use than Windows.

Which Distro? Which Desktop Environment?

During my switch from Windows to Linux I tried many distros and desktop environments along the way. As far as desktop environments I like KDE and Gnome3 the best. Sure they are probably polar opposites of each other, but both stood out to me as different enough to get me to like them.
