How I do my computing

This post is inspired from usesthis, a website where people talk about their computing setup. I've been meaning to do this for a while, but I've been procrastinating. I'm going to try to keep this short.

What hardware?

  • I use two computers, a laptop and a desktop:
    • The laptop is a 5 year old thinkpad T480.
      • Intel i5-8350U
      • 32GB DDR4
    • Desktop:
      • Intel i9-12900K
      • 128GB DDR4
      • AMD RX 6700 XT
      • Multiple NAS HDDs and NVME drives attached
  • Raspberry pi zero w for pihole
  • Input devices
    • Logitech Mx keys
    • Logitech Mx master 3
  • Poco F3: MIUI (
  • Networking rig:
    • This uses the cheapest stuff I could get:
      • Router: Mi Router 4a
      • Switch: D-link DGS-108
  • Marshall major III (Sounds good for hard rack and metal, not very comfortable for long listening sessions)
  • Thinkpad hybrid dock

And what software

  • OS: I use fedora workstation for work. And dual boot windows 11 for gaming
    • I tried using Windows WSL for work for a year and gave up. Linux is much easier to work with as a dev
  • Browser: Firefox for personal use and chrome for work (chrome sucks on linux)
  • Filesystem: I use btrfs on all my computers. I also have storage pools in btrfs for media and backups, using btrfs raid 10
  • $EDITOR: vscode (emacs keybindings) for writing code. emacs for org-mode
