Computer History Museum. The Earliest Unix Code

Dennis Ritchie, an ordinary W.A.S.P.

What is it that runs the servers that hold our online world, be it the web or the cloud? What enables the mobile apps that are at the center of increasingly on-demand lives in the developed world and of mobile banking and messaging in the developing world? The answer is the operating system Unix and its many descendants: Linux, Android, BSD Unix, MacOS, iOS—the list goes on and on. Want to glimpse the Unix in your Mac? Open a Terminal window and enter “man roff” to view the Unix manual entry for an early text formatting program that lives within your operating system.

Dennis Ritchie, an ordinary W.A.S.P.

He didn't crash any monuments or police cars. He was not a sjw moron, 'green' freak, 'meeetooo activist', anarchist, 'netizan' or coloured 'freedom fighter', etc. ... But he was the FATHER OF UNIX and C language.

A Wise White Man's Decision! :) Linux Mint developers: "Snap? Never!"

Part 1. Fedora will be happy without damned Flatpak!

Part 2. Snap: The simple anal-games of "Generation X/Y/X"

We also heard your queries on the topic of snapd. This is a topic which is important to us and we already explained our position last year:

[…] as you install APT updates, Snap becomes a requirement for you to continue to use Chromium and installs itself behind your back. This breaks one of the major worries many people had when Snap was announced and a promise from its developers that it would never replace APT.

A self-installing Snap Store which overwrites part of our APT package base is a complete NO NO. It

#Snap: The simple anal-games of "Generation X/Y/X"

Especially for any crazy IT-hipsters:

- #DNF is the package manager for RPM-based Linux distributions (RHEL, Fedora, CenyOS, etc.)

- #GNOME is a free and open-source desktop environment for RHEL, Fedora, CenyOS by default.

- #WEB (ex-Epiphany) is the default browser for GNOME.

- If any GTK/GNOME-oriented OS has a different (preinstalled) browser (Firefox for example), you DON'T NEED TO INSTALL SNAP, fucking stupid! Any basic repo contains Epiphany by default!

JUST DO:

dnf install epiphany

You're out of your fucking mind. Fuck your snap!

Why a lot of the GNOME / GTK users prefer to install an exterior password managers instead of native #seahorse or standard unix-way: #pass + #gpg + #pwgen?

Take a look at these crazy dependencies:

  • KeePass (dependence: Mono framework! - aka "free .NET")
  • KeePassX (dependence: bloody Qt!)
  • KeePassXC (dependence: damned Qt!)
  • MyPasswordSafe (dependence: fucking Qt! Obsolete since 2004)
  • PasswordSafe (Wine recommended!) :)
  • Password Gorilla (needs Tcl. Obsolete since 2014)
  • PasswordSafe for GNOME (Flatpack! Or Meson + Python)

Public Beta now finally available here: https://hackaday.io/project/170806-xpctos
XPCT.OS is a security enhanced linux based Operating System with a focus on Audio/Visual DSP arts.
It also features WineASIO making it capable of installing and running most Windows (32 bit) software, including most audio software, efficiently.
The OS is designed to be boot-able from a 16 gig flash drive, which allows any computer to be a free fully functional music platform. It's like the friendly artistic Borg - assimilate any computer that can boot from USB into a live visual and musical performance and production system.

tach #community,

folgende situation: ich habe einen laptop #medion p7648 mit #windows drauf bekommen, eine weile damit rumgewerkelt und beschlossen, das windows platt zumachen. komme mit windows nicht mehr klar. boot-security deaktiviert (ja, medion-geräte haben so was. es reicht ja nicht auf jedes gerät auf dem #markt windows zu klatschen, man baut noch sicherung ein, damits nicht deinstalliert wird), #linux installiert. so weit so gut.

das neue system funktioniert allerding nur als eine art live-cd, als wäre es nicht auf der festplatte installiert. d.h. nach neustart ist nix da, kein #OS, "kein #medium gefunden". und ungefähr hier verlässt mich die #wissenschaft. alle möglichen variationen von #booting optionen ausprobiert und komm nicht weiter.

weiß jemand #rat?
