I have arch linux on my tower, and antergos on my laptop, :D

arch is the king distro in my house, lol

arch is way faster than ubuntu.. at least for boot. I don't know how they do it. I'm digging it.

lol, with arch, you pretty much build it from the ground lol, you design it to what you need it for, lol, whether it be gaming, video editing, using it as a server system, lol.

ubuntu packs in a bunch of software and bloat, lol. you could prolly slim it down by uninstalling alot of un needed junk, idk for sure tho, rofl

I no longer enjoy using ubuntu. I know what you mean by bloat. I like to control what repos and applications gets installed.

EDIT: added applications

Mine is Manjaro linux, with the fastest boot and shutdown times I've ever had. Linux Mint also holds a special place in my heart and has been my goto recommendation for newcomers. I might try Parabola someday.

I like mint as well. Fedora is good too

free speech on the internet is coming to a close.

maybe on their internet, but we can create our own :)

that's it. I'm interested in this as well. Trying to learn about different approaches here https://reddit.com/r/darknetplan There seems to be a huge focus on WiFi I'm not sure if that's going to cut it.

wifi has been improved alot, i think it'll do fine as long as everyone uses decent routers/wifi adapters :)

i plan to buy a half height mini pcie adapter that has the atheros ar9462 in it for my laptop, my tower uses a tp link adapter that has the rtl8192cu in it, works nicely with the rtl-fixes dkms module.

it's better then having your neighbor's tearin up their lawns to install optic lines or something, lol

yeah good points. There might be room for radios in the new internet too, especially to increase the range in rural areas. not that you could ever watch a video over that connection. oh you're the radio guy. are there any registration free bands that you can send digital info over? just trying to get to like a 10 mile range, nothing too crazy.

[–]Broken-needles350 2 insightful - 1 funny2 insightful - 0 funny3 insightful - 1 funny -  (2 children)

yea, the use of radio would be cool, the best license/registration free band would be 11 meter cb radio :) i get around a 40-60 mile range with an antenna about 30 feet up from the base :)

if you want, i could have set up a demo of 11 meter sstv and rtty data communications between me and a friend :)

[–]d3rr 2 insightful - 1 funny2 insightful - 0 funny3 insightful - 1 funny -  (1 child)

yeah man, that's the stuff. that sounds perfect for what I'm imagining. some kind of low bandwidth high range option for when/if stuff seriously hits the fan. it can mesh into the wifi stuff.

[–]Broken-needles350 2 insightful - 1 funny2 insightful - 0 funny3 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

yea, i figure sstv and rtty could be used by cb radio and pirate ham radio operators to transmit data farther out if theres a big gap between local meshnets

Temple OS! It actually has some cool features like "links" being a core part of the OS. any file can link to any file, you can click links in the terminal, etc.

I thought soft and hard links were native on all linux flavors...

[–]d3rr 1 insightful - 1 funny1 insightful - 0 funny2 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

These are some kind of clickable links, and I think they can be in the middle of files or be anywhere. I'll have to find the video again.

Too bad the programmer seems not "healthy", and has passed away now.
