The fact that is possible to run debian or any other distro without systemd is enough for me to stay cool. Let's put that effort somewhere else.
Might it be the other way around? Could it be that the issue is the vessel being able to start World War III?
And that is the whole issue. Driving. We are trying to fix something that is broken in the first place.
Yes and no. I prefer to know my setup, know what the OS is doing, and so forth. Installing W7 or whatever version is fashionable now expecting it to run your "security", is like praying.
Same strategy was used by Sun to help legacy Solaris 8 and 9 programs run on Solaris 10. THey provided branded zones, also known as chroot in the real world. You could and still can install a single kernel instance of Solaris 10 or 11, and define a mountpoint that will become a root for a solaris 8 or 9. The real virtualizacion is called LDOMs that also allows to run Solaris 8 or 9 in their own kernel instance. And of course, there is also VirtualBox.
Yes and No. Moving data from A to B using scp is ok if your link is stable. At my work, to download the 12 Gbytes of that other crappy OS, there is an SMB share. I have tried many times to copy 4 Gbytes dvds over it, most of the times with no luck. Even when there is a single source and a single destination torrent provides error recovery, and consistency not matched by other protocols. Other nice feature is that any client can become source of new files. Let's face it: rsync is beautifull but setting up an rsync server is not for newbies. On the other hand, any newbie can create a torrent file and let others download from him, with a lot of benefits. And the last is that most torrent clients have bandwidth limiting options. Even when you can say rsync how much you want it to use, to be able to change it on the fly sometimes is priceless. So yes, I think torrent in some scenarios, even with single source and client, is the way to go.
I agree, but I see that scenario a harder bone for trolls and scams, in any case you are quite better than now. I mean it is harder to fool a web than a person. Specially since the "moderator"'s web might find attractive to make it more trustworthy.
A true open peer review, with weighted vote + PKI should be easy to setup. I mean, we been doing it on slashdot for years, right?
hard to stop all this maddness US is leading...
you go to see the next disney bambifier idiotic film, or you put disney channel, and so on.
It is incredible how expensive is costing fear for US guys. I pitty for them.They have a way to react to fear that is so sinister. Deal with it. There is no security, it was all a construction. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zEVPSfJIQ84
Where are your facts to say such a stupid statement?
Fear is the best salesman.
I simply can't find any reason to move away from XP, but 64 bits support (very crappy on XP 64) Can somebody here give some of the good reasons one should take the time and pain, to migrate to a new OS that doesn't seems to make anything new, no breakthroughs, nothing I can't do on XP?
If your mother has no computer experience, she will easily use linux. That's my experience. asking some other thing to look and behave as windows will not happen.
