@returntrip no, I still have it on my work laptop, but in my new work role I work with non-Podman container stuff most of the time.
Things are still possible to work around, but it is starting to feel a bit pointless to use it when I have to layer external repos, and hundreds of packages (when dependencies are counted).
@bkhl understandable.... for the machine I use at work there is one thing in I have not been able to fix and that nags me: Cisco Anyconnect VPN client cannot be layered/installed...sometimes I also think about switching to standard Fedora for work...
@returntrip what I used to do with janky customer VPNs was to run the client in a VM (Windows if that was easier), then route through it.
@bkhl I tried that, but for some reason my system (16GB RAM) was struggling to handle the VM NAD its standard workload (I think I have way too many browser tabs open)
Managing the compilation/installation of a few programs you particularly care about is entirely reasonable. You can also keep multiple installations around if you want to check on old vs new behavior.
@tfb @emacsomancer @returntrip sure, it's just that when I switched from Ubuntu to Fedora Silverblue I dropped a rather large set of Ansible playbooks to set up a lot of development stuff in my home directory. I'm quite wary of getting back into the same situation.
That said a year of living in Silverblue and doing almost all development stuff with containers has maybe immunized me against that somewhat.
