Anyone that claims to speak on behalf of the universe is either a liar or a fool
It really isn’t. If you’re already an Ubuntu user you can just reinstall all your applications and preserve your home directory.
Switching to an entirely different packaging ecosystem (especially RPMs, bleh) seems like a lot more of a leap rather than restoring your previous desktop on a Debian install.
Switching from Ubuntu to something like pop or mint is at best a lateral move in terms of usability, unless you’re totally inept at restoring your own dotfiles. Any Ubuntu user that is getting fed up with stuff like snap should have enough knowledge of Linux to be able to switch to Debian without issue.
If pop or mint have anything else over Debian other than noobie usability, I’d love to hear about them.
I asked this question when I first made a lemmy.ml account and was told to start my own instance and dont include them in my list of federated instances.
I have yet to do that and have since just blocked genz dongs and call out bs when it leaks out into other lemmygrad cummunities
I blocked their sub about dongs and it seems to have been enough.
