Re: A sysadmins guide to Bash

I really disagree with his line "for file in $(ls)". Of course this should be "for file in *".

Re: Best online Linux terminals and online Bash editors

Recommend installing cygwin for a bash terminal, and then install vim in cygwin for bash editor.
It has the advantage that you can use linux utilities (after installing) for e.g. wget, which may not be available online (equally they may).

Re: KDE Neon 5.8

I've just tried Neon in a VirtualBox VM. Is it just me or is it very slow to boot?

Re: Whats your favorite OS?

Seems to me MX-17 has more systemd than Antix-17 or Slackware (none) mx17-vm!chris (pts/0) Sun 21 Jan 2018 11:39 pm GMT:/home/chris $ ps ax | grep systemd 363 ?

Re: Whats your favorite OS?

Slackware 14.2; Kernel 4.14.12; MATE 1.16
Antix-17-net; Kernel 4.14.12 (updating to .14 currently); MATE 1.18
Tried Q4OS and MX-17 (your recommendation) - both nice and fast but systemd! MX very pretty, too.
Also have VMs of Mint 18.2, LMDE2, Ubuntu(Artful)-MATE

Re: Not a problem, a suggestion

Hi Dai, IME Atom (current) is better than RSS (current). However RSS is easier to hand-craft (again IME). Cheers.
