Despite not being a past Fedora fan, I've been using Fedora 24 for a few days now and have to say I am quite happy with it.

No glitches or problems of any kind. It runs perfectly on my three year old Walmart special Toshiba Satellite laptop (I did install an SSD in it).

Saw it the first time, but unless you have a meme that shows the MS EULA is lying, it isn't really relevant to the conversation. If you don't believe them when they say what they collect, that is your prerogative. Like I said, it doesn't upload the hard drive, only the things listed. And you can turn all of it off, if you have an Enterprise version.

Playing around with the i3 window manager. Nice and lightweight, but I think I'm still more partial to Gnome over all.

+Hartmut Noack​​ You have to hit the hot keys for windowed mode and then hit another hot key+left mouse to resize and what have you. I don't remember the defaults as i changed them, but all of the hot keys are in the ~/.i3/config. You can study/change them there. Once in windowed mode, you can move windows about freely. There are even hot key for flipping through them. Check out that config and read up on the man pages. Lots of info.

As I have some down time in a hotel I decided to play around with some distros I haven't used in a while. I am currently using Fedora 23, which is a vast improvement over the last time I tested Fedora back when it was called Fedora Core.

The install went perfectly. System update went perfectly. Adding repos, codecs, and my preferred software and tools all went without a hitch. The Gnome integration is great, which is no surprise given the relationship between RH and Gnome.

It runs quickly and smoothly, so far. No hints of lagging or hiccups. As someone who prefers Gnome over other WMs/DEs, I am much happier with Fedora than I thought I would be. I may just leave this on my laptop for a while to see how it performs over time.

Slack and Arch are my preferred distros, but I have to admit I am, so far, pretty impressed with Fedora 23. And I'll admit it's kind of nice to have everything working right out of the box without having to edit a single config file.

I've found an issue with it today. It seems there are network issues. Was trying to stream a movie over wifi and kept getting a lot of buffering. Switched over to Debian and streaming was perfect.

It appears that there is some issue with Fedora causing a slow wifi connection.

Yeah I'm hoping they improve it soon. Right now it's basically a beta.

Picked up a Vivoactive HR. Going to wear it for a week and then wear the FR235 for a week and compare the two. I'll return the loser.

Hi, just joined this community. I recently ordered a Forerunner 235 and it should be waiting for me when I get back to my office next week.

I own and have used a Moto 360 Sport (currently using), Microsoft Bands 1 & 2, Nike gps watch, and more than a couple FitBit devices. I really wanted the Fenix 3 but honestly can't afford one right now so I settled on the F235.

I'm looking forward to getting my hands on it and trying it out. Anyone have any suggestions, tips, etc for the F235?

Problems of which I should be aware?

Thanks in advance.

A recent comment on another thread got me thinking. I did an LFS build a long time ago. I recall that it took a long time, primarily because I wasn't all that experienced with Linux (didn't start using it until 1995).

I decided I'm going to do another LFS build just to see if it goes faster now that I am more experienced.

What the hell, I'm stuck in a hotel with nothing to do anyway. I will be checking out Thursday morning so I want to see how much I can get built between now and then.

Once satisfied that my LFS system was working as planned I installed Portage onto it and converted iit to a Gentoo system. I left it to compile over night and this morning had a fully functional system after about an hour of reconfiguration

Nothing fancy, just easy to read for those of us with less than perfect eyesight. Tap temperature to update weather, tap time to open agenda. Outer ring tracks seconds.

tried it on a Note 4 too. some days I get notifications, most days I don't. lots of people on various forums are having the same issue. I've tried every "fix" I could find out there , no luck yet. one guy got a new watch but that didn't fix it. seems like most of the problems are with the Note phones :(
