areyouevenreal,

I mean marx also talks about the Jews and the Christians. I thought the position was that religion helps reinforce class society.

UAC is no different from having a sudo password. They both have security measures. Sudo actually has fairly granular permissions if you can be bothered to set them up.

Windows still allows you to modify system files it’s just more difficult. If you want a Linux system that doesn’t let you do that those exist too, they are called immutable linux distros.

areyouevenreal,

Except many like mine don’t have that option. The best they have is “optimized” charging that tries to only hit full when you go to unplug it.

Yep, installed my first Linus Distro in primary school at about 11 yo. Now I am 23.

In all seriousness while I think FreeBSD and GhostBSD are very cool, and have some interesting server applications they do have some annoying limitations. It’s not really their fault either, it sucks being the 4th most common platform/kernel/whatever. The FreeBSD people seem less uptight about working with proprietary software as it’s not the same kind of Open Source Linux is because it’s not copyleft. So you can use their code wherever even in closed source products. They include things like Nvidia drivers straight in their repos.

As for what makes them different/interesting: Linux is very capable but also kind of over engineered, confusing, and somewhat jank. BSDs are generally more simple. You would think this makes them less capable but aside from software support they often have more useful features. BSDs had Jails before Containers where supported properly on Linux.

BSD is almost what Linux is to Windows: faster, more stable, less annoying, and with a fraction of the users, hardware and software support. It’s also a bit more complex to do certain things out of the box - though GhostBSD does give you a GUI and decent installer.

Also BTRFS on Linux feels like this:

Child: “Can we have ZFS?”

Mother: “We have ZFS at home.”

ZFS at home: BTRFS

Like it’s good that it exists, a lot better than other OSes had for a while, but it just doesn’t compare to the stability and performance of the original. There are some areas where it’s a bit more flexible and that can be useful, but generally it’s just not as good. Pretty much Linux, then Apple, then Microsoft all tried copying ZFS, only worse. Heck it actually came from Sun Microsystems, then got Open Sourced allowing the FreeBSD people among others to port it to their system. Linux now has BCacheFS which might be even better but it’s too early to tell.

Sorry for the long response. Thought I would explain some stuff while I am here.

areyouevenreal,

Glad you enjoyed. I would give one of the BSDs a go. NomadBSD is a good option to try out as it’s designed as a persistent live system that runs from a USB drive. Let me know if you have any questions, though I am far from an expert on this yet.

areyouevenreal,

I tried that method. It’s seriously borked if you ever want transcoding to work. Jellyfin has a customized version of ffmpeg they used that just dosen’t exist on FreeBSD to the best of my knowledge. You can maybe make it work with the FreeBSD version but it would be an ugly hack.

areyouevenreal,

Why has one increase more than the other? Is there a specific driving force?

areyouevenreal,

Absolutely not. Memory mapping is a concept created by the OS. The CPU won’t operate without RAM of some kind. It’s a fundamental hardware issue.

areyouevenreal,

Yes I would count cache as a type of RAM. Also I don’t think the cache hierarchy would actually work without main memory as it’s foundation in a lot of cases. They are designed to have memory to map to. It would also be difficult in some systems to coordinate between cores as not every system has shared cache between all cores.

areyouevenreal,

Likely they are referring to birds being in a monophyletic clade alongside dinos, but by that logic, humans are monkeys.

I mean we pretty much are. Aside from going hairless and standing upright how much different are we really?

Computers are further removed from rocks than a dinosaur is from a mamal.

areyouevenreal,

Are you having some kind of aneurysm? We aren’t talking about raw materials, we are talking about evolution and how similar things are. Humans are functionally still animals. Computers are not functionally just rocks.

As another commentor said most Linux distros will do that for you.

If you still aren’t sure then the answer is generally: swap should be at least as big as you have RAM at least if you want to hibernate. If you don’t want to hibernate then you can make it smaller but it might impact system performance when low on memory.

For file systems they will often offer you LVM or ZFS or occasionally BTRFS as options. These all allow you to make system snapshots (like the concept of restore points in Windows). If you like the idea of that then say yes, otherwise you will get slightly better performance not using those systems. ZFS and BTRFS also have other uses like RAID-like functionality and detecting and possibly correcting data corruption - with only one drive these features are not as useful though.

BCacheFS is new to the mainline kernel and does much the same as ZFS and BTRFS, when distros start offering this as a supported option it’s probably a good idea to use this, kind of unfinished at the moment though.

Edit: also if it asks if you want a separate /home generally you want to say no. Unless it’s a btrfs subvolume or zfs dataset in which case say yes.

areyouevenreal,

Systems don’t always give defaults. That’s what the guy I am replying to is complaining about.

areyouevenreal, (edited )

That’s a very large amount of things to show up. Maybe use lsblk instead? Reminds me of snaps.

areyouevenreal,

Yeah it’s included in kernel 6.7. Still probably too new to really use as they are still working on certain features like erasure code/parity.

Without another drive it can’t rebuild data, so all it can do is detect corruption not correct it.

I mean they aren’t instant and have to be within a fairly short distance of the thing you want to sterilize in order to work because they are absorbed by the air. Something like a pool would be practically impossible as water also absorbs UV and a pool is too big to penetrate all the way through just from the sides or bottom. It only works for drinking water because you pass said water through a tube that must be fairly narrow.

Oh yeah and an X-ray could sterilize all the way through an object, not just the surface. Very useful for making things like microwave meals.

areyouevenreal,

Okay this is kinda backwards. Alcohol is worse than nicotine. Nicotine withdrawal doesn’t cause seizures or death. Nicotine is less destructive to an addict than alcohol is, although it’s more addictive overall.

While cannabis and psychedelics should be legalized and can help many people they aren’t without risks. They can cause temporary psychosis and permanent sensory abnormalities/minor hallucinations. In some cases they can trigger diseases like schizophrenia. It’s all dependent on how your brain is wired and what happens when you are tripping/high.

There was actually an off-duty airline pilot that nearly caused a major accident when traveling in the cockpit jump seat after taking mushrooms a few days before hand. He jumped up atns tried to shut off the engines, and very nearly succeeded. There is a great mentor pilot video on it if you can find it. It’s a great example of what can go wrong with psychedelic drugs. That man ended up in jail btw.

areyouevenreal,

100% get you. I just thought it needed pointing out how bad alcohol is. Like you could die of lung cancer from smoking at 60 or from alcohol poisoning at 30. It’s one of those things that’s killed people the first time doing it.

areyouevenreal,

Someone did the math. It’s $315,000 not $150.000. So plenty to live on and still have some left for investment.

As for winning capitalism: capitalism is a travesty that’s killing both people and the planet. I would rather people stop talking about winning such a system - there are truly no victors. To be the victor in capitalism is to be a cell of a tumor that slowly kills its host; you only live until you finish killing the host or the host fights back. We should kill and consume those responsible for capitalism like macrophages consume cancer.

areyouevenreal,

The issue here is capitalism will destroy the environment so you won’t have anywhere to go eventually, at least if you’re not a billionaire. This is what I mean about killing the host, the bourgeoisie are slowly killing society and the planet.

areyouevenreal,

I wasn’t saying bill gates was dead. I was asking if the only good billionaire was a dead billionaire. I was then suggesting you might believe Bill Gates is the one good billionaire. They were separate possible answers I was trying to think of.
