Debian founder having a meltdown on Twitter:

So he claims to knock on his neighbor's door, only to get beaten up and raped by the police, sent to the hospital, stitched up, threatened to commit suicide on Twitter, then screams at people who ask questions and calls the police a bunch of awful poo poo.

Linux is a hell of a drug.

e: not gonna lie, this is going to be much less interesting if it turns out to be a sec fuckup.

linux is what happens when you let self-hating libertarian turbonerds near a compiler

gnu is what happens when you then give them a couple lawyers

I'm hoping it doesn't have everything hanging off a USB 2.0 root hub yet again. 480 Mbps is absolutely loving pitiful for a system bus, even for something as compact as a Raspberry Pi

why would you use the app grid when it has a search interface?

this isn’t Windows, when you mash the Windows key or ram the mouse cursor into the corner and type the name of the program and press Enter, you get the program, not some Bing results page

in 99.9% of my experience that's what you get on windows 10 as well

sometimes it gets a bit confused if you "overtype" something you frequently open (eg. "vis" "visu" visua" and "visual" get you "visual studio code" but "visual s" gets you "visual studio 2017") but has a common partial name with something else but I'm going to chalk that up to lovely awful ~*machine learning*~ bullshit

the best linux era is the one where things started to be actually usable but we still had a bunch of wacky old unix poo poo. archaic versions of KDE that looked like some old AIX nerds discovered OS/2 Warp for the first time, and the result was somehow kinda good

sound didn't work worth a poo poo of course but now in tyool 2021 you too can have your working audio stop working on windows when pulseaudio fucks that up somehow

unix windowing systems were designed to run over networks so running them over a VM-to-VM bus of some kind is basically the same thing but with just a couple VMEXITs and a memcpy instead of a networking stack and physical networking hardware

macOS is an insanely harder core operating system than linux

imagine needing gnu to write a userspace for you and then being beholden to their lovely viral license for eternity and then spending the next 30 years big dick swinging like you’re god’s gift to computing while your competitors are busy running the connected world

you’d be defending Hurd if rms could write programs in languages other than lisp and compile them on anything other than a leemote mips32 or whatever

need to upgrade a server from ubuntu 14.04 to 20.04. apparently 14.04 is the last version before they switched to systemd so this could be "fun". anyone have any experience with that? pretty sure it's just running a bunch of apache virtual hosts and maybe an nginx reverse proxy, nothing terribly complex

seems like there's some drama at freenode

https://gist.github.com/joepie91/df80d8d36cd9d1bde46ba018af497409

https://libera.chat/ has a nice tldr i guess

yeah it's bizarre. the #osdev regulars and ops have set up a channel on libera with the same set of people and so far it's just served to be a good way for us to be able to keep two ongoing conversations separated into two irssi windows

nobody is expecting freenode to collapse anytime soon or start selling chat logs to the PRC or whatever people are concerned about happening but it's nice to have a backup. personally I think one or the other is going to run out of money and whoever's solvent in six months is going to buy the other one

i did some drama research and things got weird fast

the guy who shadily "bought" freenode (*) is a very young bitcoin billionaire who also bought his way into being declared a korean crown prince. no, really! he claims that owning freenode is part of his plan to make irc great again - in his mind irc should've won the internet chat wars and it needs someone like him to push it forward so it can take its rightful place

to give you an idea of the sort of leadership he brings to the table, he hired mark "mt gox" karpeles (who has never done anything wrong) to run some portion of his business empire

imo, the only sane choice is to :frogout: from freenode as soon as you can


* apparently it's unclear whether the person he bought freenode from had the legal rights to sell what he now claims to own, but he's willing to litigate, nobody on the other side has the resources to fight it, and they rightfully came to the conclusion that it's pretty easy to start a new replacement irc network from scratch.

lmbo, that's a baffling turn of events

I think at this point we're just waiting for the libera folks to put together some servers that don't crash every few hours. been netsplits out the rear end the past few days and a few cases where zncs just can't reconnect properly

the other thing that gets me is that they just had to do a clever domain hack and get a .chat domain for this. y'know, one of those gtlds that every spammer in the universe has beaten to death so hard that the default spam reputation score for newly registered domains is lower than mail.ru

the thing I always want to know about the GPL is what kind of rulings would be made about it if top tier corporate lawyers had to go to bat against the FSF or similar. like if you threw oracle or big blue's lawyers at the FSF over a GPL violation

it's such a long license, 90% of which is bloviating about stopping people from taking arr soft-war freedums that I can't believe that there wouldn't be any sneaky holes in it or even something that a judge would look at and go "yeah you can't just make that legally binding"

for several years now you've been able to do good 3d in a vm w/ gpu passthrough, the performance hit is just a few percent. it works fine on os x, a few people here earlier in this thread said it was fine-ish for linux (as linux goes)

iirc if you have an nvidia card GPU passthrough only works if you have a quadro or titan. also

at the point where you're running both linux and windows *anyway* though you'd need a pretty good reason for it to make sense to not just reverse the virtualization and use wsl. windows is not without problems, but drivers are good and it is a perfectly fine virtualization host.
