    Also, no BuSL stupidity, they're all Apache 2 AFAIK:

    And the "all you can eat" toolbox license is just a staggeringly good deal, IMHO, which also comes with a "you can keep your license forever, just no updates" which is way different from setting subscription-based licensing money on fire when your license expires. Whoever came up with that should be applauded because it really drives down my "what about" anxiety of paying subscription money for IDEs

    1. yes this is possible, although it depends on your IDE. Here is a relevant discussion for eclipse (which also links to the VSCode implementation): Note: i also didn't know how this worked, so I learned something today too.

    2. Yes, absolutely. Feel free to reach out to me directly, or just start contributing directly if you want

    Project mention: Fedora Atomic Desktops | | 2024-02-09

    I'm using Silverblue 39 for about 2 month coming from NixOS Unstable. It's working very well for me. I have some packages layered like Nvidia and fish shell and for AKMODS modules work with secure boot. Things like neovim, pyright, helix, starship, LSPs and CLI applications I install with brew ( For desktop things I use Flatpak.

    I had a problem with some Flatpak applications (like Steam and Discord) and brew because brew puts its folder in the $PATH before the default ones (/usr/bin ...) and those Flatpak applications tried to use SSL keys from brew instead of the system ones. I just changed the order of the $PATH to make brew bin path to be after ther system ones.

    For VSCode I'm not using the Flatpak I'm using the tarball one I just extract in ~/applications and symlink the code binary in the ~/.local/bin. It's working well, I don't have problem with VSCode not executing LSPs and lint things. The only problem is VSCode from tarball cannot updates itself, so I need to download the newer version and extract to ~/applications. There is this VSCode CLI version ( but I was not able to make it use the wayland backend.
