This saying only applies to whether or not you are likely to throw up before the end of your drinking session... drinking a lot of beer first makes shots a lot easier to swallow. Go ahead and ask me how I know!
In fact, I would suggest that throwing up the night before is likely to make your hangover less annoying.
Nothing good can ever come from this whole approach. The whole point is to eliminate all dependencies on Windows, not to give people a reason to abandon bare metal Linux.
If you can get things like WPF to work on Linux+Mono, then you will have a good story. This whole "Linux subsystem" nonsense is the most depressing tech story imagineable.
I have had a Mate 8 for a couple years now (no plans to replace it). It lets me get rid of the EMUI interface in favor of other launchers -- Nova is the one I prefer.
Does the Mate 20 work well with other launchers? I would never get a new Mate if I couldn't use Nova.
I was devastated when Cedega went away, but luckily Wine has kept up for the last 9 years.
Currently I am rocking a 1080 Ti and I can play WoW on ultra mode and get full frame rates much of the time. I'm currently using the Lutris launcher FYI.
Infinite Thanks to the Wine project!
I suppose the obvious answer that more people are willing to pay for a pre-configured Gluster system, but maybe you could buy the Gluster config and replace it with Ceph fairly easily?
I went through both Red Hat traning modules and I can't imagine why someone would choose Gluster, unless it is already deployed of course. Nothing wrong with Gluster of course, I'm just not a fan of NAS-only solutions.
The CephFS NAS feature is now officially production ready, and I have had great luck with it so far. It is great to have a storage system that supports both block and NAS equally well.
Now if only Red Hat can get the Ceph cache tiering to production quality... it is the most important missing feature (since BlueStore is a foregone conclusion in the next major release)
I agree that the lack off SSD options is crazy these days. Presumably they have identified a good market to go after first.
I have been using Ubuntu 18.04 (Mate & Server) for a couple of months now. I moved all of my desktops and my test Ceph cluster (4 physical machines and 30 or so VMs) and overall it has been good. There is one notable change to watch out for: network configuration. The configuration system we have come to know and love for decades, /etc/network/interfaces, is now officially dead :C
The default network configurator is now Netplan, which is a YAML based network config system that generates ephemeral configs for either NetworkManager or systemd-networkd.
I like it overall, but there were a couple of glitches to watch out for. DHCP no longer uses the MAC address to identify your computer. Also, the MTU setting is dropped unless you disable the new unpredictable NIC naming and go back to good old eth0.
Apart from that, things have been good. We don't have to worry about a repeat of 10.04 (the worst LTS release by far).
I only use Windows as a WebEx launcher. I dread the times when I have to go to webex.com to join because it auto-plays a video that makes rdp freeze for awhile because it insists on rendering every frame.
The only acceptable solution is to deny auto-play by default and have a popup to whitelist them, similar to the way browsers can currently handle popup ads.
