@MereLinuxMortal Yay! :D
@Linux @MereLinuxMortal @hund
That's certainly one reason, but not being forced to release patches only really protects any of their IP that would potentially damage their position if Microsoft had access. It still only hurts them if they refuse to upstream **ANY** changes, as they effectively slowly fork the base OS.
If they planned appropriately, this also means that the PS5 (or whatever it's called) could have backwards compatibility trivially through jail(8).
@MereLinuxMortal @Linux Honestly, the BSDs are way easier than Gentoo, but portage is heavily inspired by the ports collection on FreeBSDD specifically (though this is an option on every BSD). It's basically a python wrapper to semi-automate the build process, as manual intervention is sometimes necessary.
On the BSDs though, you have both binary and source installation options. Definitely worth checking out at some point
Thanks! Gentoo is running in a vm. VirtualBox is running on my MX Linux :).
@MereLinuxMortal Whoops haha, as you mentioned. Missed it. Thanks.
Thanks :). I’m definitely learning a lot so far. More to go as I figure out how I’ll craft my graphical environment!
Linux Geeks doing what Linux Geeks do..
