Some interesting stuff guys ... cool thoughts.
Not meant as any kind of holier + thou thing but the degree of wastage I see in so many things, every single dy kind of sickens me a bit. It's everywhere, all things, at all times and is really sad and imo very stupid. If you have one thoughtless, selfish person, okay, still not good but okay. Add up BILLIONS of such people, conducting themselves in such a way dy in, dy out, the negative impact it has combined is horrid. When there's not a fish left in the sea or a leaf on a gdamn tree yanno ? There certainly are good people trying to make efforts and counter-act the damage done too.
Feel like I'm ragging on Head_on and I'm not, the guy is clearly a highly intelligent person and very competent techie. Still an observation, if the code is correct that should mean it's also very fast and efficient. My thoughts on BSD's and other such OS options. Just due to basic facts, number of users, code contributors, more and more interest in official support from OEM's and others, none of them will ever hold a candle to Nix. The only people who care about those outskirt OS's are the 10,000 or whatever real-life small number of people world-wide who use them. Not saying they're wrong either, clearly they're not, it's their right n choice but realistically they'll never touch Nix. That's just the bottom-line, painfully obvious fact in my view anyway.
Nothing wrong with the I prefer using xyz-BSD because it makes me feel better and I have xyz-reasons to believe it's fundamentally more secure etc. Gotta say imo, that's paranoid nonsense, while no doubt a factual basis to that in ways. I kind of get what Head_on means when talking about cleaner code, virtue of a lesser code base etc and do actually agree and appreciate the outlook for real. Getting back to sec, sec, blahblah, people do financial and other likewise sensitive transactions by the 10's of millions every single dy using lesser OS's aka: Windows and do so w/o major issues resulting overwhelming majority of time. An OS, ANY OS, is mostly only as good as the person using it, makes it. Plenty of BSD'ers have no doubt gotten Pawnd too ...
Arghhh shutting it, no offense was meant to anybody, only making comments in a Debian/tech forum fellas. Had too much coffee, not enough sleep again.
