Re: Turning your back on windows

Of course virtualization can have security holes. Holes have been found (and patched) in Xen multiple times. As the Qubes homepage says, it's "a reasonably secure operating system", not a perfect one. Still, compartmentalization is certainly an improvement, if not a panacea, especially con...

Re: Turning your back on windows

Certainly sounds problematic, but do you believe it is enough of an issue that Qubes use of systemd makes it less secure (even with virtualization and all the security stuff) than something like Devuan? Of course, no code is perfect, but I would think Qubes still has the advantage, even with systemd?

Re: Turning your back on windows

So if I understand correctly the issue with systemd's security is that if the supervisor were compromised, the entire system would be. Can you elaborate on what race conditions the supervisor could run into which may create a vulnerability?

Re: Turning your back on windows

Even if all of them were trying to censor content, the chances that there wouldn't be at least one censorship algorithm which missed any given page would be very slim, causing it to show up on ixquick. No, that isn't how ixquick works unfortunately. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ixquick#Search_mech...

Re: Turning your back on windows

It's not perfect, but at least as a metasearch any censorship of anti-systemd content would have to exist on a LOT of search engines, all in different countries with different policies regarding governments as opposed to ge...

Re: Dallas chips

Nothing wrong with it, from a technical perspective it works fine, but it's such a strange place to put a speaker. It also means that replacing the PSU needlessly replaces a bunch of other random (probably working) bits. I'm sure it's confused many who attempted to find their speaker.

Re: Dallas chips

who designed the mainboard? Placing the "power up" jumper just slightly unaccessible until you remove the CPU tray (R12K300)? Which, to make things worse, you have to do twice, once to set the jumper so the system boots, and once to remove it, so the system powers down normally. Amazing, ...

Ahh I see, you think that it's ironic to use a privacy focused search engine while the government is controlling my mind using systemd rays :mrgreen: .

Re: The Problem with Apple

I spent $1300 CAD on a refurb Retina MacBook Pro around the middle of 2015. It was an OK laptop, and I actually like Mac OS (I use a Hackintosh as my primary desktop). I used it for a while, and it was alright, but for $1300 I was a bit surprised that it was just "alright". The battery was...

Re: Portable USB PS/2 KVM Console Adapter for Notebook

You laugh, but for a sysadmin managing a crapton of headless machines being able to effectively use a laptop as a portable monitor and keyboard would probably be useful.

Re: some sun servers on gc surplus

Spotted those earlier today, but ugh... Dartmouth! None of the Canadian nekochanners (including myself) are in the Atlantic provinces at all to my knowledge. Going to Toronto this weekend, wish I hadn't missed the Onyx 3200 Gcsurplus had there. No bids, relisted, sold with one bid. Never spotted it....
