I wonder if I will be able to set
"Default type of a new tab" : Ubuntu
As well as a fresh PowerShell peek, Microsoft sent an update of its Windows Terminal out into the world last night. The preview – officially called 1910, though a click of the About box reveals it is actually 0.6.2951.0 – trickled down from the Microsoft Store overnight and has clearly been buffed as the final release nears. …
I really don't get who even thought json was the format of choice for miscellaneous config files.
It just seems like something they choose because it's fashionable, like when everything was XML a decade or so ago.
Having dismissed it for several years as "why do I need yet another simple text format", I'm really coming around to YAML for all sorts of configuration files - helps that I'm doing lots of docker/k8s stuff.
Its a superset of JSON, so you get the ability to have structured config, it supports comments and it is much terser than JSON. Even with its brevity, its also more structured than JSON, so a machine written file is still quite readable/editable than a JSON file that hasn't been pretty-printed.
About the only thing I don't like is that there can sometimes be two ways of saying the same thing, depending on whether its the brief format or not.
It is difficult to believe that (a) anyone is excited over yet another version of the Windows command-lline shell, that (b) Microsoft is again making and again correcting mistakes it has made dozens of times previously in its design of dirt-level basic UI widgets, and that (c) Ms actually got some mileage out of exclaiming, "Look at all of our shells! Look how many of them there are!"
(Kind of reminds me of: It's a big book! All the words! All the pages! [sigh])
This is reminiscent of a post I saw recently on Reddit, of people going over the top, gushing and waxing eloquent, because Apple finally got around to telling the company which manufactures its wireless earphones to make the casings from plastic which was some color other than white.
Is this news? Really? Or, as I often ask, are we awash in triviality because Hell full and the dead are now walking the Earth?
