rdiff-backup is the best thing, I've been using it at work for basically everything and never had issues. It sifts through tons of data nightly. Plus, restoring things is super easy.

I still do most work from the command line because it's faster.

i'm just quoting this to point out this ui is way, way, way better than osx is today

nextstep was wildly non-standard and encumbered by postscript and often run with monochrome graphics but man was the user experience good

This is very true. I ended up using windowmaker (a nextstep clone) well into the 00s, because it was just nice to use. I might still be using it today if e17 wasn't better at arranging my terminal windows.

Every major distro will have its own default setting, because some guy in charge likes it that way. It's dumb, but that's how it often works.

I.e., I Personally completely disable window borders for myself, since alt exists and there's never too much screen real-estate :v:

(I wouldn't force that on people who'd use my distro if I had one, but maybe that's also why I don't have one?)

Powerbook G4 was probably the best laptop you could do work on back in the day.

You had to install Lunix on it, obviously, but then it was really good.

How is this not something that bothers more people?

As a workaround, I just don't create swap. My chromebook, of all things, has 16 gigs of ram. If that's not enough to run something, I'd prefer kernel killing it than my machine going into swap hell. It's not like any app ever today doesn't have autosave. I'd rather lose a minute of work than waiting for swap to fill or having to reboot.

Truga

Lipstick Apathy

Well the other reason is the stupid chromebook only comes with 64 gigs of SSD and having swap eats into that. :v:

But yeah, on an ancient work pc I use for terminals and firefox, I set swappiness to low and it seems to work just fine with 4 gigs of ram and firefox eating it all up.

USB input used to be a gigantic pile of poo poo for a fairly long time, especially on windows, where you'd get a full second of mouse lag (but still get the exactly correct input, just later) as par for the course when your (single core) cpu was clogged. PS/2 never displayed this kind of behaviour.

It's also been over 10 years since poo poo like that got solved though. If you have issues with USB maybe it's time to upgrade.

PS/2 can support N-key rollover while no USB HID keyboard in the history of USB HID keyboards has ever implemented anything other than the USB HID Book Protocol keyboard which is limited to 6-key rollover.

The newest DAS keyboard allegedly supports n-key rollover without the PS/2 dongle now.

Use bash to write one-liners to solve trivial problems or invoke things that would take ages to do manually.

For actual scripting use an actual scripting language. Python works pretty well for me these days.

Just as I was glad gentoo existed, I'm glad arch exists, for the exact same reason: if you have a problem, any problem, with your lunix, just google it. Someone already had it on gentoo/arch.

opencl on linux runs really loving well with ati, there's a non-insignificant performance advantage compared to windows

though I'm guessing that's mainly due to buttcoiners
