I'm still happy with my S6 Edge (apart from the edge can be a pain at times) but it still does everything I need to do, and kodos to Samsung in that it has given me kernel updates for the recent scares.
"GCHQ, Sorry what? do i do windows? umm no sorry but for a fee I'll learn."
later another call
"you want me to spy on who?" "Oh that's easy, I'll just follow the twat on Twitter, no need to wiretap the prez"
Not on Ubuntu so I don't know the definitive answer, but having guest as a SSH enabled user would be a brain dead thing to do to me, especially with the way Ubuntu handles sudo.
I do with my respin, yes I don't have 350 Million users, I have a few thousand at best, 99% of my stuff "just works" for them, but I miss the occasional oops and I endeavour to fix as soon as I can, regardless if the bug affects one person or a lot. Oh and yet I don't have the turnover of some small countries. MS laying off their testers is the single biggest fuckup they made. If only they would look back to days when within reason (it's always been bad but ffs not this bad) that XP in the end was not bad, vista has a bad reputation for being dog slow, it was but at least the fooker ran, 7 was a major improvement on Vista although it was a paid for service pack, then after that all shit broke loose. We had "Modern" of 8 and 8.1 (largest fucking start menu ever) and now the spy ridden 10 and it's nice show stopping updates. It's a shame really. We need a Microsoft, if only to show other developers what not to do.
Actually Roundabouts are an American invention, The Brits however sorted who had priority
Doesn't seem to be a linux distro as it looks like it uses the Hurd kernel. (see screenshot on their main page)
I use VirtualDJ pro, Mixx and Traktor (shaky though on traktor) on linux fine using play on linux, everything works too including broadcasting. so no Windows for me
Lets see, someone hacks Wordpress and somehow because they changed the IP to a dodgy ISO, somehow Linux is fooked? Windows users, don't gloat, you can pick up a malware infested ISO of Windows anywhere :)
Quick way of finding out, from live session : "Once in the live session, if there is a file in /var/lib/man.cy, then this is an infected ISO. "
I feel sorry for the guys over at mint, they made Ubuntu usable.
Yeah, but he said they wasn't Beats, so the sound should be fine
"In Big Blue’s fourth 2016 quarter..."
Is that an mistake, as we're not even a twelfth of the way in to 2016 :D
There you go :D enjoy
I can now skype Nadella and tell him to fuck off with windows 10 forced upgrades in 7 languages? sweet :D
I did with help of others, :P not my fault you want to be whipped
I'm sitting here on my Linux box reading all the bitching about forced upgrades and so on laughing, then I suddenly stopped and thought for a second. In business as we know time is money, I earn regardless, anyway how much time are you using to play whack-a-mole, seriously, how much time and expense has it caused companies so far, expecially those small outfits where it's not worth having a domain for the secretary? someone said about updates, I can tell you this as fact, on an i5 Haswell, 1gig net link, ssd it took from a fresh windows 7 install 2 1/2 hours... I thought about that and thought okay so he updated to 10 as well, nope, that's just updates to where 10 could be installed, so I installed PCLinuxOS from 2014, December to be exact, 1000+ packages to update.. gulp, how many? clicked apply... apply 10 mins all done, installed kernel update, reboot, works, 10 minutes on my machine (i5, 90MB/s net ssd)
For all that MIcrosoft has done and continue to do to it's customers, why do people defend it, seriously if it was anyone else they'd be murder I tell ya :)
I often will summarily end such discussions amongst the "blindozed" when they suggest turning off, disabling this and that in their unholy holey OS etc - "Say you found out that your rental home was rampant with spy cameras, hidden microphones and one-way mirrors, you are comfortable to continue living there... covering each subsequently discovered peep hole with roll after roll of masking tape?
You're special ain't ya :)
17 machines here on Linux, :D mostly Trinity Desktops as I do the remaster of pclinuxos with Trinity as the desktop, incidentally there is an ISO with LXQT that a friend made too which is rather neat to be honest :)
On TalkTalk, locked in for now, however I've had no outage and no problems with bandwidth (close to 90MB/s down) so I'm not complaining yet, phones working too. Isle of Wight :D
Agreed, But I'll stick with my pclinuxos which to me seems snappier than Mint when I tried it :)
I remember when Comet died, I was looking for a USB pen drive, I went in to a soon to be closed Comet in High Wycombe and the price then was £25 for a 32 GB Sandisk. I walked to PCWorld (Part of the Dixons group) and picked the exact same Sandisk USB drive for £19, this was in 2012. I've never missed Comet, to be honest I wouldn't miss Dixon group either
No, No it doesn't, I have systemV with parallel start up, and it boots faster than any systemd system with a better processor, fact. It's not even a good init system. YMMV
I've helped set up an ownCloud server for the distro I use, I also run a private owncloud server that connects to the house computers well. It's a cracking bit of software and has lots of options, as long as you use a decent database all is good. That was an interesting interview.
Lay off the drugs man, Powershell while not that bad isn't fit to lick Bash' boots yet, seriously manthat made me laugh so hard, and yes I have used both.
The update was already in the repo when I awoke, kodos to those that do it so fast.
"Personally I like KDE (well KDE3 anyway) so I have kept going with it since I stopped using Linux as a CLI only solution. The reason why there are so many distros out there is because people build distros to suit different requirements. I preferred openSUSE partly because of its ongoing mainstream support for KDE as well as its flexibility but that doesn't suit everyone."
There is Trinity which is an updated KDE3 that is still being maintained and can be used on many distros; I use it on PCLinuxOS and made my own remaster that I publish monthly (I know I'm kind of advertising here) however it is light and fast on my systems (single core atom through to a i5)
and can be found http://trinity,mypclinuxos,com as I said it;s available for Debian based distro's too.
Where the cornflakes are worth more than the phone :P
I only part kid
I can see why you didn't put your name to that bollox
Amen to that :) all that's really needed is Contacts, Phone, Messaging (SMS, MMS) and googles play store, let me decide what I want on it, instead of having to go through the rooting process to get the crap out.
"It's a minor weakness in security if you don't install it but an MS DoS if you do!"
That's so you don't complain about the lack of Windows security if you do
Because if you set Grub to no time out and you have Windows as a default and Windows inevitability borks an update, it will just loop, like in the dentist comment, with a timer you have time to choose linux to fix the bloody thing.
No he was referring to Sherlock as he ejaculated numerous times in the books and so did Watson as to ejaculate means to exclaim
sure http://blog.davidedmundson.co.uk/blog/systemd-and-plasma#comment-1862738836 scroll up :)
Even though the distro I use doesn't use systemd the main DE it uses is moving to have a systemd dependency in around 5 months, as we as a distro are trying to avoid systemd like the plague, and we can't use gnome for the same reason, it seems we'll use any DE/WM that doesn't need it as a dependency.
The distro: PClinuxOS, the DM, KDE.
Disclaimer, I am a tester for PClinuxOS
Please that be a UK pint :D
Agreed, Aston used to be Ford owned but I knew it was sold on, wasn't sure who too though and while typing didn't bother too look it up :P
Jag might be Indian owned, but it's made in Britain, using British designers, engineers, testers. next time there is an Aston Martin review are you going to complain about it being once owned by an American company, or hey how about buying a Nissan, made in UK but Japanese owned... any how you're an idiot.
That screenshot up top looks like ElementaryOS Luna but with NORK localisation
Although it has an old versions of KDE (3.5.1) libreoffice and firefox
If that was the case, MS and others would have been bankrupt long long ago. Oh how I wish that were true :D
I remember in 1995 that slackware came on BOOT and ROOT floppies that did the whole desktop, using FVMW windows look-a-like Window Manager, and that Win95 was a 30 Floppy affair with far less functionality than the 2 floppy of slack, same today too in that on a dvd you can get a shed load on linux, and a bare shell of an OS on windows, is how it is.
Yeah they had Angry Birds on the N900. I still play it from time to time :D
I sincerely hope so
Yes, Yes it does
If they can't be arsed to update bash and associated libraries that's their look out.
Seriously a thumb down because it points out that if ya not running a web server there isn't much worry. oh well,
Sigh, ya need to re-read the article
Blu-tack worked on my sons 5s
anecdotal and just saying :D
