Some time ago i’ve mentioned the fact about [Linux usage] on my laptop. It was a [Manjaro] based around [Arch] . Recently i stumbled upon [SalixOS] review. It’s a simplified [Slackware] distro with modern fast [Xfce] user interface. As you may already know Slackware is the most “Unix-like” Linux distribution.

Right after [Windows 7 reached end of life] in regards to non-pos esu updates i asked myself: “How can i improve security of ageing operating system?” Replacement of basic internal firewall comes back to mind in the very first place.

Back in a day when torrents were in a non-existing state there was amazing p2p software called Emule. Some vintage computer geeks prefer Emule over torrents even today. Most of users are located in European countries like France, Italy, Spain. Rather unusual software for 2022, but i concur that application can be helpful in retrievement of rare and obsure stuff, which can’t be found anywhere else. Note that official download page is not updated anymore and latest 2021 version can be acquired from [community forum] or Githhub page only.

I always loved Dell’s Precision series for super easy installation of hardware upgrades.
This is not an AD post, just reporting that i’ve switched from annoying teamviewer for a better remote tool and grateful to developers of software. I fed up with teamviewer’s nag-screens and constant mumbling that i use software not for a personal use. During 2020 i’ve used hacked version with auto-generator of my client ID to prevent nag-screen triggering, but when i find out that their android client is full of telemetry stuff i’ve decided to ditch it completely.
