    Lunar replied to the thread Just upgraded my HTPC to Linux.
    To go back to remote server management on Linux, I can't believe no one has brought up Cockpit. It's a bit more restricted than Webmin, but for routine maintenance tasks and whatnot, it's easy and convenient. I have it running on my TV Server...

    Sure, you don't need to be an expert until it doesn't work and you have to start troubleshooting. The biggest problem I have with the arguments for everyone building their own PC is what seems to be the assumption that everything will just work...

    Doubtful. The truth of the matter is most people have no desire to learn how computers actually work, how to fix/maintain them, or how to build them. I understand the sentiment, but it just isn't realistic. Also, that argument is similar to...

    If the big tech firms have their way I think the vision for the future is no more personal computers. Everything will be in the cloud accessed via glorified thin client terminals. As web apps become more and more dominate I think this is the...

    Lunar replied to the thread Sort Files in Linux.
    Complicated or just different from what you're used to? Most users new to Linux, myself included when I first started using it, succumb to the "tyranny of the default" (Credit goes to Steve Gibson for coining this term). Windows or MacOS do it a...

    Yes. My complaint mostly comes down to Microsoft's constant fussing around with the UI while core functionality (search) is still a broken mess. Untrue. What they actually said is that they will do large feature updates when they are ready. They...

    Windows 95, ME, and 8 may have all had their problems, but I don't recall updates to them ever deleting users files, and I certainly don't remember it happening with multiple updates. The biggest problem with Windows 10 isn't it as a whole. The...

    I'd say use what you think you'd be most comfortable with. For me, I run Plex on Ubuntu Server 18.04 in a headless configuration. If you think Windows is the best for you to work with, especially if you are managing the installation for someone...

    If you want stupid simplicity then buy any modern intel Synology NAS with a quick sync iGPU and a plexpass. The 220+ is affordable, memory expandable, has plenty of horsepower and can do a billion other things beyond PLEX. You are paying for...
