Servers running non-LTS distros? No thanks.
i've got a nas server running 4.15 and btrfs, i'm fooked
RAID6 as well?
That's because MacOS literally is BSD.
I would argue, though, that if you're having to fire up the terminal in either MacOS, or linux, or Windows, you're operating at a level beyond the average end user.
Considering most software can now be downloaded via various software centers under most popular packaged Linux distro's these days, I'd say that's a fair assumption. However even package managers are similar between macOS and a Debian based distro like Ubuntu. Debian based operating systems use .deb and macOS uses .dmg, both are very similar in operation.
My belief is that anyone that frequents an enthusiast based forum such as OCAU should have an understanding of operating systems beyond Windows and have at least a basic understanding of the terminal/CMD prompt under all three operating systems.
But there are likely more people like myself who came to these forums because of the photography section, or motoring, or food and lifestyle.
Personally, I'm just happy if someone can use an "alternative" office suite without freaking out.
I freak out when I have to pay for the ever increasing subscription charges related to Office 365, especially considering that I never use it and do 100% of my work under Libre Office including the daily running of my business.
I actually prefer the interface of Libre Office. I hate the ribbon.
This was my desktop. (arch + gnome + whatever) Just built a new PC and have been playing with windows for a bit while I try some newer games.
God knows how it will look when I set up Linux on the new rig. God bless options.
A little bit of WINE action?
Yeah, gotta get my Diablo fix.
Fortunately most other games I play have native linux versions.
Was that the steam version of Diablo or a standalone version?
No blizzard games on steam unfortunately. All the steam games were natives, just Diablo and it's launcher running through wine.
Of course! Brain fart on my behalf!
I should try this.
