you can get more cars through the intersection with a button, obviously, by not wasting time for pedestrians when there are none.

This is at least as hard as CLI, but Emacs’ org-mode is a very capable to-do list. There are plenty of emacs plugins that add reminders and notifications, though getting these to work on mobile may be a pain.

That’s a good point. I’d argue however that if you’re running malicious, unprivileged code on your desktop computer, you’re pretty much screwed regardless, since you likely use sudo frequently and it could just keylog your password. But there are certainly some security downsides to having too many packages installed.

That’s Gnome, not Manjaro. If I recall, the main Manjaro distribution is based on XFCE. If you care so much about bloating, why would you intentionally choose gnome, which is widely known to be heavy weight?

Disk space is the only factor. There’s no bigger attack surface you don’t use the packages.

What does bloated mean to you? What is the harm in having extra packages installed, if you don’t use them?

It’s worth noting that Ubuntu Web is made by Rudra Saraswat. He’s something of a child prodigy Linux developer, but has a tendency not to maintain the distributions he creates for very long. If you use Ubuntu Web, don’t expect updates forever.

When you use Linux, it is most likely that you are using either the Fat32, or Ext4 file system. They are almost exactly the same.

Gobo linux still uses traditional filesystems such as ext4. The hierarchy is all that’s different. Furthermore, fat32 and ext4 are not “almost exactly the same”.





It also contains the folder for all of the variables.

What does this possibly mean? Variables are stored in memory only. A file that changes a lot is not called a “variable”.

it’s settings. Configurations, and data.

Your articles are much shorter than those posted on most blogs, so there is no excuse for not double checking your spelling and facts before posting them.

You only need to “Avoid” Debian if you are a real beginner. Adding the non-free repo and installing firmware from there requires adding just a couple lines to sources.list then installing certain packages.

Canonical’s was Upstart, iirc. No longer maintained.

Port 443 is not open on your server.

Just finished I, Robot. I enjoyed Foundation much more.

https://namesilo.com accepts bitcoin and has built in dns and is pretty legit.

Common Lisp. No other language has mastered the REPL.

I like all the features and UI of Dolphin, though I’ve never gotten file indexing and search to work well in KDE.

ext4 works very well. I had stability issues with btrfs the multiple times I’ve tried it.

That’s a good point. I’m usually a big fan of configuring software via whatever programming language the program is written in (eg, Emacs is configured using Emacs Lisp), rather than declarative config files such as json or ini. However, the need to recompile after making a config change is pretty lame.
