The people in my class think I'm a wizard ewe

A classmate wanted linux on his laptop, but had no USB stick, nobody wanted to lend us one.
So I installed manjaro linux from windows.

Mount ESP on windows, install grub, boot grub, load iso image, point it to kernel and initramfs and give it kernel params, boot, proceed installation like you would from a usb stick.

Thinking about buying a server...

I'd be at 130€ for one with double L5640 and 16GB RAM, from what I see functional:
No drive cages, but I can easily model and print them, I have done that before.
Oh and also free shipping

Buy or nah?

I wish I had a cool way to teach others about linux and open source in an easy and interesting way.

Convey the excitement I feel to them and have them at least try it once and explore it a little bit

I don't think this flirting stuff works like this :blobthinking:

I'm so impressed by freeBSD.
So far except for the X11 thing it was quite smooth sailing.

The graphics performance on the desktop is better than it was on arch linux!
No screen tearing, no stutters, it just seems to work quite well.

Idk why but this all gets me kind of excited. I didn't think I would be this excited when I try it out.
Maybe I'm just easily impressed πŸ€”

@duponin I finally installed freeBSD everything went well until I wanted to install x11.
Graphics drivers of Nvidia and intel are loaded, but the xserver won't start.
I feel a bit dumb, but gotta give up for today, it's 5am.

It was an interesting journey though, I learned a little bit about grub and quite a few things about freebsd. So far I really enjoy learning the differences to Linux - even without a GUI, but I intended to try it as a desktop system.

And if you come with "You can use haskell as a procedural programming language"
It's a huge hack and in my honest opinion awkward and not what the language was made for.

Granted I only dabbled with it though

I feel so fucking messed with.
Like what?? He surely was like "wtf is a haskell lmao"
Idiot, as always he proves that he doesn't know what he's talking about

@duponin what do you think about bsd as a desktop system?
I've been thinking about it for quite a while now because I like a lot of the philosophy of bsd better

Not safe for linux 

I hate that I don't push everything I'm doing...
I wish I would just push ever single project I have.

I don't mind that you don't take my advice but don't you dare get fucking cocky and think I have no idea what I'm talking about.

So he was like "Are you not taking notes" and "Did you reach the next level" (cause I'm on my phone).
I just didn't answer and shrugged.
When I said "Those are things you don't forget if you do any programming", he said "Then you can surely explain this"

When I did, he just turned away and continued class without bothering me again.

I fucking HATE when people treat you like a fool, just because you're young.

I talked about my concerns and advice about their infrastructure, which completely collapses by just plugging an unknown device into an Ethernet port in the labs btw.
And he just dismissed it like "oh what could go wrong" implying "you have no idea" with the way it was worded.

That already kinda got me mad.
I didn't take notes in class, because I've been programming for a bit now and think I know what a variable is...

Another milestone in my life:
Mom is using Linux now.

Plus I'm also proud to be a linux user. Nowadays I'd not be satisfied with the little amount of control and monitoring/logging that Windows gives you.
Not that I am currently hardcore using that stuff, but I use some of it and would love to expand on it.
