Are you saying that this linux can run on a computer without windows underneath it, at all? As in, without a boot disk, without any drivers, and without any services?

That sounds preposterous to me.

If it were true (and I doubt it), then companies would be selling computers without a windows. This clearly is not happening, so there must be some error in your calculations. I hope you realise that windows is more than just Office? Its a whole system that runs the computer from start to finish, and that is a very difficult thing to acheive. A lot of people dont realise this.

Microsoft just spent $9 billion and many years to create Vista, so it does not sound reasonable that some new alternative could just snap into existence overnight like that. It would take billions of dollars and a massive effort to achieve. IBM tried, and spent a huge amount of money developing OS/2 but could never keep up with Windows. Apple tried to create their own system for years, but finally gave up recently and moved to Intel and Microsoft.

Its just not possible that a freeware like the Linux could be extended to the point where it runs the entire computer fron start to finish, without using some of the more critical parts of windows. Not possible.

I think you need to re-examine your assumptions.

Bonjour :mastodon: !
Dis, aurais-tu une association à conseiller pour la découverte de l'informatique, d'internet, éventuellement des smartphones ?
Sur Paris, idéalement proche de la Porte des Lilas.
Et, idéalement aussi, pas trop chère, voire gratuite, la personne qui m'a demandé n'ayant pas trop de ressources.
Merci !
Faites (vous) plaisir ! 😘 🤗


Qui serait intéressé par des CPL devolo 1200+ avec une prise Suisse <- important ça!
Je les donnes à Genève
Faites passer

Rappel : prise Suisse

For those of you who play Blizzard games.

The employees have asked you not play them at all tomorrow as a message to the company.

Digital Strike and all that.

Just out of curiosity. Can anyone recommend any tech video channels made by more diverse sets of people? With focus on e.g. Linux, *BSD, hardware, privacy-focused FLOSS phones/tablets? Also I'm interested in social aspects of computation & networking.

I'm sick of watching tech videos made by tech bros.

Coucou la communauté !

Avec @eorn , on a un petit problème d'invasion de fourmis dans la maison. On essaye de s'en débarrasser, mais elles reviennent encore et encore...

La difficulté ici c'est qu'on n'arrive pas à trouver le nid et qu'on ne peut donc pas éliminer le problème à la source.

Auriez vous des petites astuces pour les faire partir définitivement ?

Bon... Je ne sais pas ce qui vient de se passer avec mon compte Telegram, mais j'imagine que c'est l'occasion de le supprimer du coup. Est-ce que cela fait d'être banni ? Je peux toujours accéder aux conversations privées cependant.

I'm still alive! 😱 And have finally drawn something again, even though it is, once again, a pen sketch. :) Hope to get back to posting again more regularly now that the semester is over. How have you all been doing?
