never tried it

it’s meant to be very tiny

ActuallyNotGelb 2022-08-18 21:13:32
OpenRC, has its own super clean package manager, and
ActuallyNotGelb 2022-08-18 21:13:35
idk if it’s musl it uses
ActuallyNotGelb 2022-08-18 21:13:36
wait
ActuallyNotGelb 2022-08-18 21:13:54
Small. Simple. Secure.
Alpine Linux is a security-oriented, lightweight Linux distribution based on musl libc and busybox.

it’s not directed toward desktop use

this is a real shrödingers cat thing

i think you meant “not a standalone OS” xD

ActuallyNotGelb 2022-08-18 21:14:26
but I mean, it works perfectly as a desktop distro, if you can get over the astonishingly bad defaults lmao
ActuallyNotGelb 2022-08-18 21:14:33
and the fact not all software is available

but it does support flatpak just like most distros
ActuallyNotGelb 2022-08-18 21:15:48
so for a ton of people, Alpine could work
ActuallyNotGelb 2022-08-18 21:16:20
ah yeah, if you know the mobile OS called PostMarketOS, it’s based off Alpine

Fun fact:
You have been online for the last 2.5 hrs

malware_hacker_bot 2022-08-18 21:16:48
Or 3

fun fact: I’ve been cleaning my whole office in the meantime

ActuallyNotGelb 2022-08-18 21:17:04
but I don’t mind sending messages quite often
ActuallyNotGelb 2022-08-18 21:17:13
in some occasions, you could see I took 2 to 5 minutes to reply

was a joke

ActuallyNotGelb 2022-08-18 22:26:36
you don’t need an antivirus on Linux
ActuallyNotGelb 2022-08-18 22:27:10
the chances of you getting attacked are nigh null, and if you verify everything, and all of that, chances of you not noticing are statistically non existent
ActuallyNotGelb 2022-08-18 22:27:29
plus, they all verify the signature, so it shouldn’t ever cause trouble
