  • Microsoft has basically taken almost all businesses in the world hostage.
    Once your staff is trained on MS products and your own stuff is fully connected to Azure, you’re trapped and they can adjust prices to just below what you can bear.

    Microsoft doesn’t need a monopoly in the dying consumer desktop market anymore. That’s why they’re the top contributor to the Linux kernel, integrated a Linux layer into their OS, offer to save documents in an open format in Office, and host articles on how to install Linux in their documentation.

    The year of the Linux desktop has finally come. Everyone who doesn’t still run Windows 7, now has a Unix system installed on their PCs (and all other devices). It’s just one that’s distributed by Google, Microsoft or Apple.

    Now you have a standard Fedora command line system that shares your home folder but otherwise has its own filesystem.
    There’s more options (like using other distro’s), but it’s really not complicated.

    To install CLI stuff that needs to access your host system’s root files, use rpm-ostree (but if you need a lot of that, use a non-immutable distro instead).

    I actually use neither anymore. My stuff I actually want to work with is in home and I have no need to tinker on this system, cause it just works.



  • 12 pm isn’t past noon, it’s noon.
    12 am is past noon just as much as it is before noon.
    So for 12 o’clock, choosing am or pm is arbitrary convention.
    So it would make more sense to reverse them, to get a consistant row that starts with 1:
    1 am, 2 am, 3 am, 4 am, 5 am, 6 am, 7 am, 8 am, 9 am, 10 am, 11 am, 12 am, 1 pm , 2 pm , 3 pm , 4 pm , 5 pm , 6 pm , 7 pm , 8 pm , 9 pm , 10 pm , 11 pm , 12 pm
