Never been really a fan of all the new post C languages but the fact that aims to target makes it very appealing for me to jump in and give it a try.

If you want to have a real Unix experience use

If you want to have a real moldable environment use

Unix is old. Unix is so old that “classic” MacOS is newer. The AS/400 operating system is newer.

I see a lot of people complaining about programming languages but what they are really complaint about is the operating system these languages were designed with/for/etc.

If we want these problems to go away we really need to be working on new operating systems.

The biggest argument I see against this is “compatibility”, but that’s what protocols (and other communications standards) are for.

There is an argument to be made that the web browser is an operating system, which is something to explore but even that is like 20 years old. Hardly high-tech or cutting edge.

#collapseos may be the newest operating system I use, which is a really weird thing to think about.

This is crazy.

Hopefully v5 will include proper SMP support.

Tal vez algunos de los problemas de lenguaje neutral en la documentación (en cuanto a género) podrían evitarse si el escrito se refiere a quien lee en vez de a terceras personas.

Por ejemplo:

«El propósito de guix environment es ayudar a las hackers en la creación de entornos de desarrollo reproducibles sin modificar los paquetes de su perfil.»

Mejor, creo yo:

«El propósito de guix environment es ayudarle en la creación de entornos de desarrollo reproducibles [...].»

After about 7 years of riding only fixed gear, this week I switched to a gravel bike, and oh man, everything is sooo different. At least it will be nice to ride during the winter.

crypto is short for "cryptography"

if you want a shorter word for "cryptocurrency", the word you are looking for is "ponzi"
