Re: GitHub being acquired by Microsoft ... ?

Always thought GitHub as a kind of opensource fortress, free of money making corporate manipulations. Handing itself over to Microsoft would be to surrender to the dark side and lose this independence. Giving in to Microsoft represents a system that will likely impose new laws that will stifle free ...

Re: When is the next BLOG coming?

Blogs are useful.
Still follow a bunch via RSS.

But i can understand the engagement, especially if you're a coder and already have a Twit (sorry, Tweet - accent makes the differences) and + Google.

Re: Windows 10 update overrides Linux

Indeed. I was pleasantly surprised at its performance. There are nevertheless a few hics. Still haven't found a way (other than F9) to boot in one or the other system. Also, as it often happens, usb devices do not always "agree" from one OS to the other. The headset for example, is not recognized wh...

Re: Windows 10 update overrides Linux

Update.

Finally found the SSD connected via usb and now have Solus up and runnin' again.
It is basically just as fast as in dual boot with Win 10 :)

Trying to get EasyBCD to show both Solus and Win as options at boot.
Work in progress but no more worries about Windows update overriding Solus! 8-)

Re: Windows 10 update overrides Linux

One more problem.

The SSD i have is a Comkia and Windows 10 does not recognize it.
Even if i type in the command diskmgmt.msc it is nowhere to be found.
The lights on the SSD (but nobodies' home).

Re: Windows 10 update overrides Linux

Have a 120G SSD (not Sandisk) I can hook up to usb3 port.
Will give that a shot and see.
Might not be as fast to boot but who knows!
If it works it might be a most pleasant adventure with Solus! ;)

Re: Windows 10 update overrides Linux

From what I can understand, if I had booted with Solus (with usb or DVD copy - since it would not load nor could Windows 10) and typed in sudo update-grub, then my non-uefi system (MBR with Grub) would have been fixed?

Re: Windows 10 update overrides Linux

Not giving up, i posted similar at MXLinux forums and got this response: If your linux partition would have been still intact and visble from Gparted using a live-boot I'd recommend Rescatux's and/or Super Grub2 Disk from one of the smartest grub2-gurus on this planet https://www.supergrubdisk.org/ ...
