    Ashley MLP Fangirl got a reaction from jagdtigger in Chrome OS’s Linux app support is leaving beta   
    interesting. it's still a weird approach though.

    It's a bit more complicated than that.
    The Linux environment runs in a container, not a full VM (using LXC to be more precise). So it is not as taxing as running a full Debian VM.
     
    So it doesn't have anywhere near the performance penalty of a VM, but you still get a lot of the benefits (such as being able to limit both hardware and software usage and permissions).

    Ashley MLP Fangirl got a reaction from StDragon in Apple's Craig Federighi: Mac malware state "Non Acceptable" and why iOS != Mac   
    i understand Craig's point perfectly. his point was that if you allow software installs from a number of places compared to jsut the app store like iOS, you get a much higher chance of malware. these are simple facts, i don't understand why you are confused about it @WolframaticAlpha
     
    you can actually enable an "ios" mode on macOS kinda. this button is in the settings: 

    and if you only allow from app store, then the OS will refuse to execute any app that wasn't installed from there. however since the Mac App Store is kinda like Windows's store at the moment in that it doesn't have a lot of common software people install, almost nobody uses this feature. however, if you want more security, it is available in macOS.

    no, the "linux app support" in chromeOS is in fact a Debian virtual machine.

    the thing Apple took the FBI to court over was building in backdoors which they didn't want to do. if the data in question is viewable by Apple and the FBI requests it, they can hand it over in compliance without building in backdoors into their software.

    Ashley MLP Fangirl got a reaction from King of Memes in i'd like a block feature...   
    Similar to Twitter's block. if i block someone i don't want them to be able to view my profile or any of my posts (maybe except one's that are marked as solution to topics as i can see the use there, but i'd like replies to be blocked for those too).

    🤷‍♂️ What's boring to one person, is aesthetically pleasing to another.
     

    Given the choice between Space Grey (basically black) and their white colored stuff... I'll pick the Space Grey.
