I mean Windows is bad at everything except for backwards compatibility. Attempting to create a carbon copy from scratch of a system with decades of cruft and undocumented behaviour is going to be near impossible. What they've done thus far is environment impressive. As I mentioned in another thread the only reasonable alternatives to linux are in order: openbsd, illumos, and plan9. illumos has "LX branded zones" which allow for a secure enviroment to run linux applications with zero overhead. Openbsd has a stable community and lots of ported applications. plan9 has very little support but is usable.

I can tell you what I don't like about linux, the numerous updates to software. I can not stand how many updates there are to software, not only every year, but just down to the day. I don't even try to keep my software on the bleeding edge, but damn it, I want to keep the version that worked for me. With many distros I've used: notably, gentoo, ubuntu; I've noticed that updates tend to break my software installs. yes, I understand dependency hell, but that's not what I am talking. Case in point, I've been writing music with lmms since 0.4.13 and damn it, I have to keep 0.4.13 plus the current versions of dependencies. if I don't do this, I get terrible noise in my songs, and some of the instruments straight up do not work. This is not what I consider something productive. It's infurating. LMMS 0.4.13 is extremely old, but there should not be any reason that newer versions can't handle files that I wrote with the old versions. They should be compatible.

This is why linux is not used productively. There is too much change. There is too much incapatability within the software its self. It's ridiculous to expect anyone to accept this.

What problems do you have with linux?

Moron, hello? What's the point of a package manager if you install softare outside of it? Besides, I shouldn't have to go through a bunch of shit just make a local overlay for portage to go through and handle versioning. That's what a package manager is supposed to be used for. It's freaking ass to resync portage and have all my software on a working system to be completely unusable or maintainable because they decided to remove the ebuilds from the tree. This is true of every package manager for every mainstream distro.

I'd ask what technical reasons do the Tor guys have to base their browser on Firefox and not anything else, like Midori or fucking Dillo even. They're hoping to piggyback on Firefox's bugfixes, is that it? Hoping to piggyback on the fancy kewl stuff like WebRTC which they end up disabling for privacy reasons anyway?

Really? It's still downloaded(?) and the users can be fingerprinted(?) from users that have set "javascript.enabled" to "disabled"? Source? I think you are just repeating rumors without any evidence, otherwise sites like eff's panopticlick (which work closely with Tor people) would be all over that, and be able to show users that they have something that makes them stand out. Please contact the the panopticlick group at the eff and tell them how, as it would clearly help a lot of people's privacy.

There needs to be an operating system built from scratch, and built right from the start. Linux is a big bloated shitball, Windows is a big bloated unstable and closed source shitball, and OS X is like a big cube of gay disappointment. BSDs are all stuck in the 90s and every Unix distro except maybe Solaris is completely dead, and those are stuck in the early 2000s at best. Plan9 is 80s autism.

If you want to know what a really good desktop OS looks like, take a look at Haiku OS. It has a good looking and consistent GUI that just works, and as a result it's simple and convenient to use. The installer works flawlessly in under a minute. Due to it's Unix-like underpinnings, you get a fantastic file system (BeFS) and other tools like Bash, and partial POSIX compliance makes porting a lot easier. It uses a hybrid kernel that's rock solid and offers many of the features of a full microkernel, including the isolation of device drivers.

The ideal server/embedded OS is Sculpt OS. This is a full microkernel system that's based on the seL4 kernel and the Genode framework. This is literally space age software being made available to the public, which was previously only used in the consoles of fighter jets and other advanced weapons systems. You never have to reboot for updates, and it's damn near impossible to knock it offline unless you break the hardware. The modular design allows it to heal itself. If one process crashes, even in the kernel, another can simply restart it without restarting the whole system.

The future is now.

I don't see how gentoo is a stepping stone when it's much harder to use. You also have to compile everything which can rape less capable hardware. Ports are easy. I think a multi tiered approach might be good, with the goal of always getting to do what you want. Something like:

1. OpenBSD (surprisingly capable, can do most things)

2. Arch/Antergos (muh WINE, muh steam gaymes, muh AUR)

3. Ubuntu (unlikely to reach this stage)

4. Win7

That way you're spending most of your time on OpenBSD and only using other stuff for specific reasons. And those reasons will diminish over time.

I have latest wine-staging, steam beta, JACK, brave, git mesa, git libdrm, git dolphin emu, git retroarch, flatpack and snappy; all of them quickpkg'd up, and I can install/deploy a new laptop asset with all of the above in less than 4 minutes from *netboot*.

Ports could learn a thing or two from Portage. I'd love to have a package.use (and a package.keywords and package.env) in ports. It'd change my world. Having a layman-equivalent in ports would also be extremely beneficial.

If you're on weaker hardware, use Calculate or CloverOS (or any binary overlay) and quit whining about "muh compiling". I ran gentoo on an Atom D525 for years as my daily driver. It wasn't hard. There's a reason firefox-bin, brave-bin, and libreoffice-bin exist in regular portage.

The truth of it all is that Gentoo isn't hard to use, once installed. it's just hard to *install*. Calculate gets you a Linux desktop in the same time Ubuntu does, and the pain of administration is about the same, if not a little less on Calculate's side. Calculate (Baby's First Gentoo) simultaneously makes Gentoo feel less threatening, and also introduces newbies to a Poettering-free linux experience, likely for the first time in their lives.

A multi-tiered approach would be Gentoo on bare metal, OpenBSD in a VM handling your network/wifi card, Win7 in a VM with LookingGlass (for everything that doesn't work in Steam Play/Proton), and an Ubuntu install in VM for compatibility testing. Anyone dual/multi-booting in Current Year + 3 is an idiot that doesn't know how to VM.

An addendum: while AUR is a neat workaround for the limitations of pacman's design, Gentoo's model is superior, because it literally *integrates* an AUR into the normal package repsoitory. Submitting new packages to portage is as simple as making a bug in bugzilla, and attaching the ebuild. If your ebuild changes too many things, or is updated once every two days or something, throw that bitch in an overlay (which is very similar to an ubuntu ppa from a user's perspective - who uses Arch overlays now that V10l0 is no longer needed?), and then people willing to dip their toe will find you on gpo.zugaina.org

Most of the packages that update from git have a -9999 build of the package, which will update every time you emerge @world; all you have to do is edit a package.keywords file and insert a line about it.

Now, if you're like me, and you want to install minimal Poetterware to make Steam games work (or the wife demands you play Stardew Valley on multiplayer with her), in Gentoo I have the option to disable pulseaudio's ability to talk to alsa. JACK is the Head Nigger In Charge, pulse can only talk to JACK as a slave, and doesn't even know Alsa exists on my system. Alsa, similarly, is configured to only output to JACK. ffmpeg only talks to JACK. so does vlc, smplayer, mpv, gstreamer, kmix, and phonon. Literally the only apps that use PA are steam games. All I had to do to enable this was emerge pulseaudio with -alsa, and the rest with -pulse -alsa, as useflags. Can you do that in pacman/pacaur/yaourt, or are you stuck with every setting enabled by default? Thought so.

>decentralized P2P network

How it Works

When you add a file, the files are cryptographically hashed and a merkle tree is created. These hashes are announced by the IPFS client to the nodes in the network. (The IPFS team often describes the network as a "Merkle forest.") Any user can request one of these hashes and the nPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

didn't the IPFS team say that as soon as IPFS gets wide adoption, they'll remove the bootstrap nodes?

Passerby who studies in a field unrelated to computers but happens to like projects that encourage counter-censorship coming through. What kind of overhead would an individual or group need to set up their own IPFS gateway to provide for others without fear of getting Shut Down via cloudflare or official gateways? I have half a mind to hire some qualified lads to do some good in the world.

Thats not how p2p works. You have to bootstrap.

If you want this gateway to be public, then it'll need considerable storage and bandwidth. If you already have that, then you can just set-up IPFS, and run a daemon. Maybe get someone with some know-how to configure it if you want people to be able to do anything interesting with the gateway.

I know it's been this way for a while, but in the last few days it has been a big blackpill.

Some hot takes from the Zogcombinator thread:

>Anyone know what Julia is using for those handwritten slides? I absolutely love everything Julia writes. She writes in a way that makes absolutely zero assumptions about your level of technical competence. You could be a junior, mid, senior and still get something from most of her articles. Anecdotally; Almost every female engineer I work with writes and communicates in this fashion and I really bloody wish more of my male counterparts would speak with less jargon/acronyms for the sake of new starts/non-engineers.

Her stage appearance reminded me a bit about lectures from my favourite high energy particle physicist Holger Bech Nielsen.
