funny this about text editors…lol;
i forget which OS it was and exactly what it was but I was on this one Linux OS, and I remember needing to edit a system text file…the OS demanded I only open it with vi (I don’t remember trying vim at the time). Some OS’s have a trend of getting a little strict and benevolent…
I ended up replacing my OS with one that does not tell the user what it can or cannot do…not desirable at all… of course I replaced it luls.
one thing i do but never really mention is look at software trends… especially the one where they look at the user like they should be controlled all the time… i look at the trend and try to extrapolate that to the future of the software.
i hope one day 30 years from now someone isn’t saying “lets put a benevolent AI into the os…systemd can manage it :D”
the world says you need to use NTP, but i personally don’t have it enabled on my OS’s and never have time sync issues :\
maybe an os sends out HTTP/HTTPS request when you’re not home hahahaha . ya, if it’s not spyware - it’s usually some kind of auto-update feature… meh.
idk, anyway i like knowing what ppl use hehe.
