Hi, my name is Walter.
I am a technology enthusiast. My hobbies in this area range from programming to retrocomputing and diverse other things.
You can find more about me on my website.
And I know. I'm forgetting many hashes to put here, but this is ok for now.
About NetBSD... I'm still sad with the lack of binary packages of important software for old machines, like Seamonkey and Arctic Fox this last took more than 7 hours to compile from pkgsrc on this machine...
This 30GB SSD on my X40 is not small for a unique S.O.
But for now I will call this machine "My BSD test machine".
With a dual boot of NetBSD and OpenBSD... and a small partition of Linux just for Grub, and yeah, I not happy with this Linux thing just for boot the systems. And that things gets very small...
I don't know, maybe I install it on a USB Flash. Still sucks!
@SDF Can we have emojis of tech related things here in this instance? Ex: NetBSD Flag, Plan 9 Mascot etc.
Fucking SIS chipset. 😡
The fame of "tool system" is ok but need to stop, NetBSD is more than that.
FreeBSD, OpenBSD and even Plan9 have especialized channels.
I think I've found the best real-life analogue of a Star Trek TOS bridge workstation: the circa 1985 Aesthedes 2 computer graphics workstation.
* same layout of swivel chair, control board, row of big monitors, row of small monitors
* you want buttons? we got buttons!
Just not the "semicircle" button layout, which seemed sensible in the 1960s but was going out of style by the 80s. And then the keys got eaten too.
It would be a nice project to make a software like that if I can't find it.
Too bad I already have other projects at the moment.
