the fear of missing out a better compression
  • Zip is fine (I prefer 7z), until you want to preserve attributes like ownership and read/write/execute rights.

    Some zip programs support saving unix attributes, other - do not. So when you download a zip file from the internet - it's always a gamble.
    Tar + gzip/bz2/xz is more Linux-friendly in that regard.

    Also, zip compresses each file separately and then collects all of them in one archive.
    Tar collects all the files first, then you compress the tarball into an archive, which is more efficient and produces smaller size.

  • Almost. It doesn't try to solve all the problems, though. I'd say it's a passion project like Haiku and TempleOS.

  • From interview: it started as a research project. The author wanted a distribution that uses the least system resources with maximum performance.
    He started with archlinux, moved on to gentoo and to go even deeper - found the infamous "linux from scratch" and started to shape his own distro.

    Do you daily drive Wayland, if so since when, if not when will you?
  • Ok, because of this post - I decided to bite the bullet and try wayland again. And it was much better experience this time:

    I've installed sway "pattern" on OpenSuse-Tumbleweed and:

    • Previous time I had some issues with lightdm not supporting sway, now - it just works.
    • I still use xdotool and i3-msg in my custom scratchpad script and yet everything is working.

    waybar absolutely supports clicking tray icons.

    I confused it with swaybar, that's installed with sway by default and should be an i3bar-compatible. Waybar doesn't seem to support i3bar protocol, but anyway, after I configured it - it's like 95% there from what I want.

    • I had to force xcb platform for appimage of nekoray (qt VPN gui), because it's complaining about missing wayland-egl plugin. But it's a small problem with straightforward fix, so not that bad.
  • Do you daily drive Wayland, if so since when, if not when will you?
  • I could switch tomorrow if I could do my current setup:

    • Tiling Window manager (sway?)
    • simple status bar to output text from a script with clickable applet icons (waybar?)
    • the way to show/hide windows on a button press - I have a script that I use to quickly toggle 3 dropdown terminal windows

    Last time I tried Wayland in December, I had issues with waybar not supporting clicking tray applet icons. Also I've ported my dropdown terminals script to support sway - and it worked half the time, like, literally every second key press was ignored.

    On one hand I have X session that currently has no downsides for me, on other - wayland that has no upsides. Tell me, why would I switch?

  • I try to convince myself to use "random appearance" in games that have it now

  • suck it, math nerds
  • You still think in 1-based system, Pi unit * Pi unit is Pi of Pi units or 3.14159.. Pi units. Also, Pi unit / Pi unit is 1/Pi Pi units or 0.318309886183790.. Pi units..

  • suck it, math nerds
  • 1 is also a number, a number we chose by convention to be a base unit for all numbers. You can break down every number down to this unit.

    20 is 20 1s. 1.5 is 1 and a half 1.

    If we have Pi as a unit, circumference of a circle would be radius*2 of Pi units. But everything that doesn't involve Pi would be a fraction of Pi, e.g. a normal 1 is roughly 1/3 of Pi units, 314 is roughly 100 Pi units, etc. etc.

  • suck it, math nerds
  • Who said Pi is infinite? If we take Pi as base unit, it is exactly 1. No fraction, perfectly round.

    Now everything else requires an infinite precision.
