Last time I tried daily driving this it was called “Atomic Workstation” and docker made me revert back to regular Fedora WS within a month. Lets see how it fares now. Fairly excited that toolbox exists and its at least *less* painful to manage containers.

Tap to click being disabled by default is going to drive me mad one of these days...

I've *spent* minutes in the installer thinking it was doing something and the UI had not updated, but it turns out my click was never registered...

Cool, it installs apps as Flatpaks it seems, except they are rpm builds that are using the org.gnome.* ids and build against the Fedora runtime...

Firefox seems to still be part of the image though, can't uninstall it after replacing it with the Flathub build..

Looks like also, silverblue 33 comes without a Mail client, video app or Music app.. Wonder where they want to go with this.

Interesting, there appears to be a Sushi installed, I don't recall that being there by default on regular fedora.

I wonder how it work given that it can't preview most media since the Fedora runtime lacks the *vast* majority of codecs.

There is a fun bug between weather, calendar and the shell widget.

Weather default to Fahrenheit 🤮 cause it doesn't know how to use locales yet, but it has a switch to change to Celsius.

Now that switch is essentially doing:

`gsettings set org.gnome.GWeather temperature-unit "centigrade"`

Which then gnome-shell and Calendar read to use the preferred format.

Now since the apps are Flatpak, by default all use their own Keyfile GSettings backend. So the when weather changes the key/format it doesn't affect the other apps.

gnome-shell even is reading the key from the host (naturally)

So yea, you got 3 different places not being aware of the others existing and keep displaying things in Fahrenheit.

<2/2 Weather>
