Good, realistic take on FreeBSD on laptops.
This mirrors my own experience pretty well:
"Is FreeBSD ready for the desktop? Yes and no. Yes, in that I have a very nice FreeBSD laptop where everything works the way I want. But no, in that it took me two months worth of fiddling with this in my spare time to fix some of the "glitches" which arose"
Also, you have to be pretty careful with your choice of hardware.
@Horizon_Innovations I can vouch for #FreeBSD working fine on a similar laptop ;-). Mind you that though things are improving, desktop UX is still not great out of the box ("some assembly required"), so you might want to consider #FuryBSD or #GhostBSD as #FreeBSD-based desktop-oriented alternatives.
#OpenBSD is also supposed to be really good on laptops with even better e.g. wireless drivers.
@nvi yup. That'd be ideal. And if it actually were usable without the GUI, even more.
2020: We have RFC6578  since 2012 and still exactly zero decent WebDAV clients with synchronisation.
I'd even pay for something like mountainduck.io (even if it were OSS and free and whatever if they gave me the option), but mind you, it's only for Mac/Windows.
@raichoo this is totally a thing. What many people miss is that in order for this background processing to happen, you have to have done *some* related foreground work. Without the latter, inspiration doesn't magically happen.
"I’m not going to name sites accessible only via IPv4, because if I do, those sites will add IPv6 half an hour after this book reaches the printer."
@mwlucas, maybe you should have mentioned @GithHub@twitter.com :-D.
@shibayashi nice, those "small" updates still take time, so it's great when people help. Thank you!
@shibayashi show me a link :-D.
Very glad that was useful to someone other than me!
@friend hum sorry, nope.
Zugeben, man leidet an Liebeskummer, oder allgemeiner über Gefühle reden, selbst wenn diese nicht gegenseitig waren, führt überhaupt nicht dazu als möglicher Vergewaltiger gesehen zu werden.
Solange Respekt gegenüber den Anderen, deren Wille und deren physikalische und psychologische Integrität vorhanden waren, soll das niemals ein Risiko sein.
@pingpong warum wird denn nicht drüber geredet? Ernste Frage!
@xanderio das glaub ich, ich finde es zwar verblüffend, wie krass es überwiegend als Frauen-Sache dargestellt wird.
Es ist als würden Männer nicht drüber reden weil Männer nicht drüber reden weil Mä[...]
@notcmhobbs I'd just recommend giving it a go. #OpenBSD has its own virtualisation called vmm, which works nicely for OpenBSD and Linux, I'm unsure about e.g. virtualising windows.
AFAIK #FreeBSD does better on the media side in general, it may depend on the hardware because most people I know with #OpenBSD claim it's alright.
#FreeBSD also has its low-weight virtualisation called bhyve, which does virtualise whatever you point at it.
