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.

Need tech help. I have two GPUs in my motherboard. The motherboard keeps selecting the wrong GPU as the one to output to. In Linux I can't find any settings to make the os use the correct GPU. Anytime I search for this it ends up being an integrated vs dedicated thing. Butni have two dedicated cards. I need the PC to only use one since the other will be passed to vfio

Some guy: "Hey there Delilah, a thousand miles seems pretty far, but they've got planes and trains and cars"

Other guy who just walked 500 miles and then walked 500 more: "... they have WHAT!?"

Of all the dysfunctions of the famously cursed US healthcare system, few are so obviously a total scam as "surprise billing." Here's how that works: you go to a hospital (often its ER) that is covered by your insurer, and then, despite this, you get a giant bill. Surprise!

How can a hospital covered by your insurer hit you - and not your insurer - with a bill?

While I was at the mechanic today, the shop dog decided I was his best friend and kept insisting I pick him up so he could see what was going on better.

His name is Toby and he's a very good boy.

Anyone know of any good crypto accounts to follow? Trying to learn more about it.
