"i use linux as my operating system," i state proudly to the unkempt, bearded man. he swivels around in his desk chair with a devilish gleam in his eyes, ready to mansplain with extreme precision.
"actually," he says with a grin, "linux is just the kernel. you use GNU+linux."
i don't miss a beat and reply with a smirk, "i use alpine, a distro that doesn't include the GNU coreutils, or any other GNU code. it's linux, but it's not GNU+linux."

the smile quickly drops from the man's face. his body begins convulsing and he foams at the mouth as he drop to the floor with a sickly thud. as he writhes around he screams "I-IT WAS COMPILED WITH GCC! THAT MEANS IT'S STILL GNU!"
coolly, i reply "if windows was compiled with gcc, would that make it GNU?" i interrupt his response with "and work is being made on the kernel to make it more compiler-agnostic. even if you were correct, you won't be for long."

with a sickly wheeze, the last of the man's life is ejected from his body. he lies on the floor, cold and limp. i've womansplained him to death.

I should really try to get the time to read up on automation like ansible for example.

@sir hey! Thanks for creating sourcehut, it's a great git lab. I am a paying user since 1 month back.

@crodges @iah btrfs is pretty amazing. I did a system upgrade on a box yesterday from openSUSE 15.0 to 15.1. Found out after that wireguard is not yet supported for 15.1, and I need it on this box. No problem, just rolled back to the auto-created pre-update snapshot (one command), rebooted, and I was back to a working 15.0. Like it never happened.

This is not the first time btrfs has saved my bacon and turned what would have been a full rebuild into a quick rollback.

It's time to vote for the EU parliament soon! Actually now!

Hey friends, since I have almost no friends on Mastodon, promo me and help me find people.

I'm a furry artist and musician who's into programming, and video games. My tastes are very eclectic so I'm into most things.

It appears it's hard to delete yourself from librem.one. Anyone has an idea?
