Probably the Intel management engine, since it’s pre-installed on every single Intel chip in the world.


Sorry this one took a long time. School has been rough, and with homework and Marching Band, I haven’t had a lot of time to research or write.





That works too, but copying the file is simpler and easier in my opinion.



Here’s a quick, simple review since I’ve been a little busy lately.

Linux Mint, An Amazing Linux Os For The Desktop
This post makes the [best blog on the internet](https://thekernal.xyz) exactly 1 year old. Thank you all for your support as I try to improve and make new content.


Writing? Theater? Film? Poetry? What kind of Fiction are we talking about here?


It’s not a bad thing to be old. It’s tested, and works well. Is it the most effective? No. But that doesn’t mean that it still isn’t a fantastic windowing system.

In fact, while the original X was created 38 years ago, X.org, the most commonly used windowing system on modern desktop Linux, was released 18 years ago.


Because it makes it easier to collect data on you. Plus, a system-wide VPN addblocker is a lot harder than a browser extension.


The title is party hyperbole, partly a play on words, and partly 100% serious.









I do agree that that’s the main reason that traversing Vim is fast. But, if you’re a power user, using Vim feels so fast and great because you can do almost anything with 1-2 keystrokes. And that same ability to do anything that you would ever need with a single keyboard shortcut, even if the shortcuts are slightly worse, is still there in Gedit.




Because they have advertising. Edge, Vivaldi, and Opera are more popular than brave, but things like Qtbrowser or Ungoogled-Chronium just don’t have any advertising.


They’re honestly just quite shit. They’re notoriously unreliable, use cheap parts, break often, and are very prone to overheating.



Reviewing Every Single Gnome Circle Application
Jesus Christ, this one was a doozy. 40 separate applications get their own, albeit, short reviews. The whole thing clocks in at around 2791 words, so good luck reading it all.

Brush.

Don’t go to the dentist.


Just fixed the hyperlink not showing up.


I don’t think that America is trying to take over the internet because they secretly hate other non-American or European countries, American companies are just doing what is making them the most money.


No, it’s based off of the open sourced parts of Google’s new operating system, but it is completely independent from google.


I hate it, but it could work.


I personally like to use regular command line tools (cd, mkdir, mv, ls, etc.) but there are many cases where a terminal file manager comes in handy. When working with a large number of files, having a simple list is a lot easier than reading all of the filenames and opening them. Plus, if you’re like me and choose to use a POSIX shell, managing files with terminal commands is hell when you have long filenames.


Not to discredit the contributions of the FSF, Linux does not need GNU, but GNU sure as hell needs Linux. Hurd is a mess, and simply cutting out Linux from the name when it is the most important, complicated piece of the OS is a bit dumb. If we didn’t have GNU, Linux would be doing just fine something like Musl, the BSD compiler, and Busybox. Without Linux, GNU would be nothing but an experimental LibC, Compiler, and Shell.
