101  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: *NIX: Pipelight has a new website - plus new version available on: July 29, 2014, 08:22:06 AM
So, given that you really want to keep a misleading thread title, let me get into the contents then:

How is it "good news" that a Windows binary (Pipelight) which can access Windows plug-ins can run on Wine "now"?
102  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: *NIX: Pipelight has a new website - plus new version available on: July 29, 2014, 08:14:56 AM
My point would be that my initial point that "*NIX" is a lie here still persists.

Well... I bought AdGuard for now. HTTPS support seems to be mandatory these days.
104  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: *NIX: Pipelight has a new website - plus new version available on: July 29, 2014, 07:32:45 AM
Just an FYI: "*NIX" stands for any variant OS that is Unix-based or Unix-like.

Pipelight is a wrapper for using Windows plugins in Linux browsers and therefore giving you the possibility to access services which are otherwise not available for Linux users. Typical examples of such services are Netflix and Amazon Instant, which both use the proprietary browser plugin Silverlight. These services cannot normally be used on Linux since this plugin is only available for Windows, and the only open source alternative (Moonlight) is lacking support for DRM.

Pipelight helps you access these services by using the original Silverlight plugin directly in your browser, all while giving you a better hardware acceleration and performance than a virtual machine. Besides Silverlight, you can also use a variety of other plugins that are supported by Pipelight. Take a look at the installation page for a complete list.

Pipelight uses a patched wine version to provide a windows environment to the plugins, but you do not need to worry about this as Pipelight will take care of installing, configuring and updating all supported plugins. From the perspective of the browser these plugins will behave just like any other normal Linux plugin after you have enabled them.


-- Ironically, the *BSD (well, only two of them?!) support - as well as the Linux "support" - works via Wine - thus, via an additional Windows simulation layer.  wallbash

No, this isn't "*NIX software". This is "Windows software which also runs on systems which can pretend to be Windows".

"*NIX" for "Linux-only" is quite optimistic.

Have you looked at Vim?  I thought it was a Windows port of vi but apparently it is multiplatform

Actually it started as an Amiga port.

I just want one text editor that is more than a notepad, and less than an IDE. 

+1 for Vim then.

Where to store the "critical data" then?
108  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Is Antivirus Software a Waste of Money? on: July 28, 2014, 02:57:07 PM
"Not on a workstation" - but ... on servers then?
109  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Is Antivirus Software a Waste of Money? on: July 28, 2014, 08:28:51 AM
I hope "store your critical data on machines you don't own" wasn't serious either...
110  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Is Antivirus Software a Waste of Money? on: July 28, 2014, 08:23:37 AM
I don't trust servers I don't operate myself.
111  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Is Antivirus Software a Waste of Money? on: July 28, 2014, 05:40:51 AM
Rule 0: No critical data is ever to be stored on a workstation.

Precisely. Store it in the Cloud!

Still larger than Emacs.
113  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: free antivirus on: July 25, 2014, 04:43:35 AM
Oh, and the next Optimo AV developer here? Or are you the same guy?
114  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: World's weirdest file manager on: July 25, 2014, 02:49:34 AM
It did?  It seemed to me that's the same reason that you're dismissing it... so I guess that's even?

No. The screenshot I attached was made by me. Using it feels different than looking at it.
115  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: free antivirus on: July 24, 2014, 09:49:25 AM
Thanks for the generous and selfless offer, dear first-timer.
116  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: World's weirdest file manager on: July 23, 2014, 11:47:01 PM
It did on the screenshots.
117  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / World's weirdest file manager on: July 23, 2014, 06:35:33 PM
Uhm...

[attachthumb=#]

OK, Mac users might like it. I'm slightly confused.

Avast Internet Security seems to be vulnerable

Yes, it is.

"Nice editor".

Emacs for Windows (the official build) has 47 MB...

Wouldn't mind seeing that approach being incorporated in word processors too.

121  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: TrueCrypt alternative on: July 07, 2014, 09:07:26 PM
I've been spending the past few hours encrypting an OpenBSD machine with OpenBSD's own softraid(8) tools. At least full disk encryption works like a charm. Container files might work via vndconfig (which is deprecated). So, basically, OpenBSD seems to be a viable TrueCrypt alternative.
122  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Linux User Are Evil TERRORISTS! Shame on you all! :P on: July 07, 2014, 02:52:24 AM
I'm sure you saw the quotation marks. Let me rephrase it: If you're an OSX or Windows user, you shouldn't try to talk about how computers should work on those forums. A friend of mine switched from Windows to Linux, wouldn't ever touch a terminal but repeatedly makes low-quality "Windoze" jokes since then. Linux users, the ones with the only true plan.  undecided

On a side note why Linux sucks: Have you seen the latest presentation by Lennart "break ALL the systems!" Poettering? Linux as the "all-purpose OS" with every single thing tightly bound into one main system process. So sad.
123  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Linux User Are Evil TERRORISTS! Shame on you all! :P on: July 06, 2014, 05:05:42 AM
I'd approve prohibition of Linux. Have you ever been to a Linux forum? These guys are weird, talking about their "New World Order".
124  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Switzerland-based ProtonMail, yet another secure email service on: July 01, 2014, 05:57:01 AM
"Secure". Sure.
