Right now I'm mostly playing Pokemon Prismatic Moon (a difficulty ROMhack of Ultra Moon) but I got Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask, Xenogears, Xenosaga (all three), Xenoblade Chronicles, and a good number of other Nintendo games and games not on Steam.

The Steam Deck was an amazing purchase for me. I put on EmuDeck and a bunch of ROMs and can play those from the Steam interface while also playing many of my Steam games and it's now a great all-arounder.

Once Windows got rid of the gorgeous Aero theme starting in Windows 8, plus the shitty UI/UX that Windows got again starting in Windows 8, pushed me to Linux.

I always like to remap Y to yank from current position to end of line, so it works just like D.

  • Black Lagoon

  • Canaan
  • Kara no Kyoukai
  • Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex
  • Hellsing Ultimate
  • Outlaw Star
  • Jojo's Bizarre Adventure

That would be my list.

Honestly because it's quite customizable, that's about it. Being able to customize my software to look and work the way I want them to is a big reason why I use certain programs over others.

EndeavourOS as the distro of choice for easy installation and AUR access.

Depending on the DE, if it's not MATE, I almost always install Caja, Engrampa, and MATE Calculator since they just have the most sane look and UX to them for my use cases.

  • Waterfox as my browser of choice (reason over Firefox is that it offers tabs below address bar as an option in Preferences rather than mucking about in userChrome.css files that often break on updates)
  • Vivaldi as a secondary browser for websites that only render right in Chromium
  • Kitty as my terminal of choice.
  • Clementine as my music player of choice
  • yt-dlp for downloading Youtube videos as mp3s
  • htop over top, also have gotop for a more graphical look
  • exa over ls

MATE as is or Xfce with some MATE software (swapping Thunar for Caja, swapping the XFCE calculator program for MATE's calculator, using Engrampa instead of whatever Xfce uses for a file archive manager, etc.). I like things simple and following roughly the same paradigm that I've used for years.

And for the love of god, PLEASE KEEP MENU BARS AS THEY WERE IN THE PAST! Stop removing menu bars from programs in favor of "hamburger buttons" or whatever nonsense modern programs like to use! That's honestly one of my biggest gripes with "modern" software, they keep changing the paradigm to something that I haven't used and I can't be bothered to relearn everything.

I disagree. I actually like the LibreOffice, non-tabbed, UI. It's a UI/UX that I'm used to from Office 2003 and honestly prefer. The 2007+ ribbon interface makes things harder for me to find.

Anything after 7 is bad in my eyes. I HATE the direction Windows went with the UI style, doing away with the Vista and 7 Aero look. Plus Windows 10 drives me up the wall trying to find the proper settings (is it Settings or Control Panel? Why do we have both?!).

Traditional for everything. Scrolling down means the view goes down. The mouse controls the camera (the reason why I always invert Y axis on controllers).

Been using kitty for a while now, though honestly any terminal emulator works for me.

Can be any format.

For Commander decks, I have at least 5 Dragon tribal decks already and am planning to try to build a dragon tribal deck out of every possible multi-color combination plus mono-red eventually. But Slivers and Eldrazi are up there too as two of my favorite tribes to build around.

Is there a way to have Lemmy instances render in wide-screen mode (sort of like old reddit or older themes of Wikipedia)? I really dislike the default look of everything being in the center with tons of blank space on both sides (I use 1440p monitors).

For what it's worth, I came up with the following Stylus css script to work on the (also works on for what it's worth if you so choose):

.container-xl {
    max-width: 2560px !important;

.col-md-8 {
    flex: 0 0 85% !important;
    max-width: 85% !important;

.col-md-4 {
    flex: 0 0 15% !important;
    max-width: 15% !important;

Can just adjust max-width under the .container* options to whatever you want (I chose to set it to my monitor's width). The col-md-8 and col-md-4 are for the main content and sidebar respectively, so I have main content at 85% of the width and sidebar at 15% of the width. Result looks similar to this:

Published my style here for use on Stylus:
