A vote for OpenSUSE Tumbleweed. BUT, you don't have to update daily. I've been using Tumbleweed as my daily driver since the day you did a 180 with nix. I now run RockSTOR (a Leap based NAS), a Tumbleweed transactional server running services in containers, Tumbleweed on WSL for fun while I'm gaming on Windows (Fortnite won't run on Linux properly), and Tumbleweed on my laptop, and all this is from a guy who has a Debian tattoo. Geeko is coming to my right shoulder next month.

Awesome looong live episode!! I agree that it is ok to settle on a distribution for the sake of productivity and your own sanity. For me that choice is Ubuntu Mate. I am highly productive on it and agree with the maintainers decisions. In order to appease my testing and distro hopping, I purchased one of those beelink mini boxes previously mentioned. all the best.

A for ssl cert, why not use traefik to get your certs: https://doc.traefik.io/traefik/master/https/tailscale/ or https://leonsteenkamp.co.za/posts/traefikproxyintro/ which brings up using a dns challenge for certs instead of needing to be accessible via port 80. This should allow you to do a cert for, say, nextcloud.ladyjupes.com using the tailscale ip in linode's domain management therefore only being accessible by tailscale, but still having a proper DNS entry.

I hear the complaining about not wanting to get a ticket, and all I think to myself is put the phone down and follow the traffic laws, Chris. what will your kids say when they listen to this episode when they're driving? It's okay to speed and break laws as long as I know where the cops are? Personally, I have changed my habits over the past few years to leave earlier, be more prepared, and go the speed limit and keep my eyes on the horizon scanning for the police instead of on my phone.

He has several videos showing how to install, power consumption and even video capabilities. I am interested in QNAP TS-464 4 bays. It got 2 NVME slots one could be for OS and a pci-e slot, 4 cores and up to 16GB ram. As a cheap allways running (got WoL aswell) and small it seems like a good solution.
