NomadBSD doesn’t work on most newer laptops. It doesn’t have many of the drivers used for modern Wifi cards.

I know. But it’s the best you can get for a persistent system on a USB drive. Even better than Puppy.

None. I don’t really see a need. It’s not like anyone is just going to snatch up my computer when I’m away, and my EXWM + Dvorak is enough to drive all the normies away.

What do you want to make? A static site or a web app? If you just want to make a static website I’d highly recommend using a site builder like Jeckyl or Hugo.

5 Great Text Editors For Writing Markdown · The Kernal
I'm sorry I haven't posted in a while, I've had a very hectic last few weeks. But you should expect some more content soon. Marching season is over, so I finally have some free time on my hands.

I hope you understand that I didn’t mean anything racist with the term. “ricing” is just an acronym describing overly-customized shitty cars, which has been adopted by the Linux community to describe customizing desktop environments & window managers. I don’t see how “ricing” is derogatory to anyone but people who add exhaust tips, useless spoilers, and yellow paint jobs to their cars.

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.

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?

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

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.

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 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.

I always just say “Linux”, because even though I run Gnu software, you can run Linux without GNU (Alpine and Android).

GlibC is more ‘boated’ but will give you more support for applications than musl. For example, you can’t run appimages with GlibC. There isn’t much of a difference though. I personally use musl with no problems.
