    [discord] <Stuff> Hello
    [discord] <Stuff> I was wondering whether it is worth using the beta as my workstation
    [discord] <Stuff> Is it ready enough for that purpose?
    [discord] <Stuff> I am planning on replacing gnome
    instantOS
    @OsInstant_twitter
    [discord] <Pebor> Well, it sure is stable! I don't think you will find your system randomly breaking or crashing, if anything goes wrong, it's most likely just an arch problem.. instantos doesn't do too much stuff custom, it just uses other tools to achieve it's goals

    [discord] <Arijit> Can i install another wm on instantos. Hopefully it wont give problems. I want to checkout xmonad
    [discord] <Arijit> Anyone have any experience with using a different wm in instantos??
    [discord] <paperbenni> Using other window managers works just like on arch
    [discord] <paperbenni> works completely fine
    [discord] <paperbenni> The custom features like instantassist and some settings from the control center currently only have integration with instantWM
    [discord] <paperbenni> so your experience will pretty much be vanilla arch

    [discord] <Clarko> Hi comrades. My home key is completely useless in the terminal, and the end key just points to the ~ caracter, as well as the del key. I know that I can manually map those in zsh, but is it a signal of another deeper bug? I reinstalled instantshell folowing the announcement, but might have fucked up or something?

    [discord] <Saphira Kai> Same with my shell, but I'm actually still using zinit because i installed it from clones of the project when it went down
    instantOS
    @OsInstant_twitter
    [discord] <Clarko> I got the problem before the zinit betrayal, it might be a remnant or maybe just coincidence(?)

    [discord] <Oofbrooof> @paperbenni is it possible that system76-power breaks my installation ?
    [discord] <Oofbrooof> when i try to switch to nvidia
    [discord] <Oofbrooof> on a hybrid laptop
    [discord] <Oofbrooof> is it safe for me to try using prime?
    [discord] <Oofbrooof> or bumblebee and the like
    [discord] <paperbenni> I have no idea, I don't have a hybrid laptop to test with
    [discord] <paperbenni> And I also don't know how exactly system76-power works
    [discord] <Oofbrooof> okay, and um, im able to see my nvidia card settings, nvtop, nvidia-smi but it doesnt get used?
    [telegram] <paperbenni> Why do you get the impression that it's not being used?
    instantOS
    @OsInstant_twitter
    [discord] <Oofbrooof> i tried to run gputest benchmark and it only used the cpu
    [discord] <paperbenni> That looks quite ancient... You could try something more modern like blender cycles
    [discord] <Oofbrooof> yeah but id need to install blender
    [discord] <paperbenni> It's just 100mb
    [discord] <paperbenni> Oh, that reminds me
    [discord] <paperbenni> Blender does have a standalone benchmark
    [discord] <Oofbrooof> does chrome have hardware acc tho?
    [discord] <Oofbrooof> okay lemme look for it

    @OsInstant_twitter
    [discord] <paperbenni> And I'm not sure how well it works, it's currently a flag I think
    [discord] <Oofbrooof> but id use the gpu if i turn it on?
    [discord] <paperbenni> probably
    [discord] <paperbenni> why would you want to though?
    [discord] <paperbenni> are you watching 5k videos?
    [discord] <Oofbrooof> no just thought itd be a way to test if my gpu was working or not
    [discord] <Oofbrooof> id open like 5 4k videos and see what happens ig
    [discord] <paperbenni> that's not a good method to see if your gpu is working
    [discord] <paperbenni> if your cpu is capable then it'll still work
    [discord] <paperbenni> and gputest looks reeeeally fishy, I wouldn't even put that on my machine
