76  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: What's your preferred File Manager on: May 30, 2014, 06:37:04 PM
As I'm currently flooding several boards with it, I'd like to attach my question also here:

Being a happy XY/x² user, I'm still looking for a good "orthodox" file manager (Norton Commander clone) for certain tasks. Required: SFTP support, no way to disable the second panel (I want to force myself into using it correctly), a decent GUI (no Total Commander stuff pls).

Altap Salamander, SpeedCommander or something very different? Any good reasons?
Tried them both (and FAR) and can't really decide.

AFAIK the download provided there probably contains a trojan.

(Well, the spirit of Open Source, right? Secure and trustable and everything.)

Oh, neat, another Linux whose devs misunderstood that Linux is not meant to replace anything.

Atom is a decent browser and still doesn't have a good editor.

Why not Emacs?

cdrtools?
83  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: ImgBurn - full of OpenCandy and other crap on: May 20, 2014, 02:20:40 PM
I wonder if they come from the ImgBurn forums to advertise here.

Comparison of which Android software?

I'd usually take Android boards' polls into consideration.

Borland killed Sublime Text?

Atom is based on a bloated web browser. Might explain things.
89  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: You have ruined Javascript... Rob Ashton on AngularJS on: May 12, 2014, 03:01:17 AM
Not that Javascript itself (with its implicitly wrong implicit data types) wasn't broken before.

Maybe we need a text-editors-only sub-forum Wink

Yay! Time to rant about Atom!

Textadept is easily on par with Vim, Emacs and ST (to name three popular, powerful editors) in terms of its capabilities.

Where's the mail client?

I guess the "problem with GTK" is a problem with the developer. Other GTK editors work fine.

The "free burning software" market seems to die out slowly.

On Windows, I currently use cdrtools (like InfraRecorder without the GUI clutter) from here (German site). Probably this is one of the very few future-safe options.
93  News and Reviews / Best E-mail Client / Re: E-mail client recommendations on: April 22, 2014, 10:20:56 AM
With max. 2 accounts? That's not "free" for a typical "power user", I guess. But hey, some *ix clients can only handle one...
94  News and Reviews / Best E-mail Client / Re: E-mail client recommendations on: April 22, 2014, 09:31:33 AM
eM Client is not free.

Mods forget to edit quotes. Hmm.

Above list is incomplete, given that (obviously) a couple of BSDs and derivatives work as a host too.
96  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: *NIX: Relatively Minimal Host OS for VirtualBox Use on: March 09, 2014, 02:05:15 PM
*YAWN*... (now that's something of substance.)

I told ewemoa where to look by giving one of the possible answers to the question asked initially. If that's not enough, ewemoa might come back to it, right?
97  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: *NIX: Relatively Minimal Host OS for VirtualBox Use on: March 09, 2014, 01:51:51 PM
Yep, the host software and the guest software. Now how does this invalidate my thesis?

(Interestingly, you emphasize a different part every time.)

and the VirtualBox Guest Additions[2] with the operating system.

Guest Additions are installed on the hosted system.

Either way, I'm more familiar with using BSD to create bespoke servers rather than VM hosts, so I'll defer to you to provide instructions or links on how to do it under OpenBSD. 

RTFM...  cheesy
99  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: *NIX: Relatively Minimal Host OS for VirtualBox Use on: March 09, 2014, 01:36:16 PM
Your quote is related to using PC-BSD as a guest system.

OpenBSD works as a host (or doesn't, depending on who you ask). - PC-BSD is not exactly "light on resources".
100  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: *NIX: Relatively Minimal Host OS for VirtualBox Use on: March 09, 2014, 10:13:31 AM
easy to install (so recognizes hardware well) *NIX -- though light on resources

Not having read the rest of the thread:

OpenBSD.

Much less than 100 MB RAM usage on my "hey, let's test OpenBSD" machine (latest 5.5-CURRENT with default X installation), fast and clean base system installation. It even found my Radeon card immediately.
