Welcome to /flt/ - Friendly Linux Thread!
Users of all levels are welcome to ask questions about Linux and share their experiences.
Before you faggots start spamming "euhhehhu it's Ganoo/Linucks praise the almighty rms who eats from thy foot", I think that we should at least stop forcing people to install Gentoo and install Ubuntu then gradually level up to the /fglt/
*** Please be civil, PLEASE FUCKING NOTICE THE "FRIENDLY" in every Friendly Linux Thread ***
Before asking for help, please check our list of resources.
If you would like to try out Linux you can do one of the following:
0) Install a Linux distribution of your choice in a Virtual Machine.
1) Use a live image and to boot directly into the Linux distribution without installing anything.
2) Dual boot the Linux distribution of your choice along with Windows or macOS.
3) Go balls deep and replace everything with Linux.

Anyone know if Xubuntu uses systemd? I can't find any info on this and their IRC is asleep
AFAIK -Everything- uses systemd except Gentoo and some of its derivatives, Slackware, and the ultra-lightweight stuff like Puppy Linux and Tiny Core. Debian lets you opt out. I don't think anybody else lets you opt out, but I might be wrong about that.
Use virtualization to try distros out if you're curious about them.
thanks for this, so during thr install process debian asks you if you want systemd? is this correct?

So is there something on the horizon for the poorfag who needs a gpu? Even without miners raising the price of cards, there aren't any budget options being developed today, aside from maybe the new load of nvidia crap. What are some good budget GPU's?

When will AMD realise that releasing Bulldozer over and over again isn't going to work? Consumers these days aren't dumb enough to fall for the 'moar coars iz betur' argument, the Threadripper release today has been marked by nothing but disappointment and damage control.
