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.
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 🤔
@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.
@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

have fun running your next sudo command with me around your unlocked laptop
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...
