@matigo A monolithic entity like that at the core of the OS goes counter to what made Unix Unix. It's a philosophical beef. Also, early on, their binary logging was idiotic. That has improved quite a lot over time. I will admit that.
@matigo NOTE: The box doesn't see much use now as the stuff is mostly in private GitHub repos now. One less thing to have to admin.
@matigo I transitioned the internal GIT repos and a few other things to a FreeBSD box back when the systemd nonsense irritated me. No regrets. Just means having to switch gears a bit shelling in.
Mobile hotspot on Windows 10 had issues. Devices could connect, showed no errors, but could not access the Internet.
So, I stupidly play "Google the issue"
I knew clicking "Reset networking", resetting the TCP/IP system from a admin powershell session, etc would do nothing. But, I did it anyway.
Then, I got mad and did the dumb thing I thought would work. A thing that I should not have had to do.
I forced the DNS server addresses.
Everything works peachy.
@matigo It was as if it were maintaining the prior viewport size. Odd. Gnome allowed me to switch from 3840x2160 to 1920x1080 with no issues.
@matigo I installed MATE on that box already. When I tried to back down the resolution to 1920x1080, the upper portion of the UI went off-screen and rather than fool with fixing that, I decided to give Gnome3/Whatever the heck that is a try. I try to be open minded about these things.
@streakmachine Part of me has the perverse desire to go back to fluxbox or blackbox.
Attempting to get used to the default Ubuntu desktop. Whatever they call this thing.
I can adapt to this but I vastly prefer a Gnome2 style desktop. (ala MATE)
