XP is the one I use most often when I cant get something to work in Linux or wine. Other than iTunes I've found something better in Debian or it just plain works in wine.


Post your XP screenshots. In this thread we have two rules. Not Debian and not thumbnails. We want non-free fullscreen stuff.

But I broke the rules , used thumb-nails.
====== edit ====
Anyway, a brief explanation, I really don't have any use for windows, but my nephew needs to use it in school. His laptop was "broken", mostly because he lost the password and could not login, so any way I showed him, using my system as a example, and offered to install OpenBsd, with a Windows XP VM, that he could use for his school work. After I experimented with it , and wrote some scripts to help him with transferring files to and from the guest, (windows XP), he liked it, and we went ahead and installed OpenBsd, with QEMU , and the windows VM.
I do not know how to "hack" a ms windows system, if and when the passwords are lost, and have no interest in learning how to. With the OpenBsd system, if he happens to lose his password, in the future, I will be able to help him reset a new one, of course, if he loses the windows password again, he still will be out of luck on that,...but I did set up the "admin" account, and it is a easy password, that I will not forget, so probably if he loses his windows password I will be able to fix it.

I just Love Minix3, and 'su' even works as expected on a Unix like system.
Only using 131 mb memory
Image
Neofetch also works on Minix3.4 :D
Image
Connected to the server with Lynx browser, note a 3 mb increase in memory usage,...

My fvwm setup. Using tint2 and fittstool rather than the fvwm modules to keep the bloat down. fvwm is imo the most flexible wm. It can do just about anything but is brain-blowing crazy to get your head around even with some of the most comprehensive docs going. You could probably spend this life and the next tweeking it in search of perfection.

That is nice, I like FVWM myself, if I do use a WM on Minix 3, that is what I use.
Here, below, is the server (Minix 3) , connected to it with Iridium browser, the server is on a QEMU VM, the host is OpenBsd, and sometimes get confused as to where I am.
Image
Any way, I am here,... :mrgreen:
In the top Xterm, I am logged into the server via ssh, not using any WM, the Xterm window at the bottom, is the OpenBsd host terminal,... and the WM on the OpenBsd host is OpenBox.

Decided to try the new release of Mint's "Debian Edition" (in QEMU ofc, I'm not a masochist):

Image

Can anybody spot a potential problem with Mint's choice of sources? :mrgreen:

^The last one, that useless, obsolete and potentially dangerous line?
Yeah, don't try installing VLC in that one.
EDIT: I'm guessing wrong, am I?

Yes, what were they thinking? :o

I can only presume it's for the codecs or something but that's gonna bite them at some point, I'm sure.

For something different ... image of a desktop structure rather than a image of the actual desktop wallpaper/icons/etc.

Image

Data separated from desktop, where the data server hunts you out and mounts one of its folders as a local (desktop) mount point using reverse sshfs (there's a nice alternative description here). If the device supports sshd and ddns (dynamic dns that associates a fixed domain name to a dynamic IP (IP allocated wherever your desktop system connects)), then shortly after booting the desktop up pops a local folder (mount point) for whatever data your data server presents (relevant folder on the data server). Portable too - whatever device you use as a desktop, provided it supports ddns and sshd, then the data server will serve up the data folder to that.

For the data server, I just have a entry in /etc/rc.local to invoke the script ... where that script has a while loop that looks for your desktop every minute or so, and when found runs rsshfs and stays in that until the connection is lost, when it rolls back around the while loop again.

Back to Alpine Linux:

Image

They've de-blobbed the kernel for the 3.8 release and split the firmware out into packages (just like Debian) but they are incredibly fine-grained — I only have to install the firmware for my exact type of wireless card:
Code: Select all
alpine:~$ apk info | grep ucode
iwlwifi-6000-ucode
alpine:~$ apk info iwlwifi-6000-ucode
iwlwifi-6000-ucode-9.221.4.1-r0 description:
Intel 6000 Series Wi-Fi Adapters Microcode

iwlwifi-6000-ucode-9.221.4.1-r0 webpage:
http://intellinuxwireless.org/?p=iwlwifi

iwlwifi-6000-ucode-9.221.4.1-r0 installed size:
466944

alpine:~$

Neat!
