Thoughts on Technology Companies and Linux Operating Systems

It has been months since I’ve post my blog here... Apple released MacOS 10.14 Mojave. I upgraded my MacBook Pro 9.1 (Mid-2011) laptop to MacOS 10.14 Mojave. Mojave started to slow down on my Mac. Since I cannot afford a new laptop I’ve decided to move on to Linux. I’ve chosen Fedora 29 KDE operating system as stand-alone on my MacBook Pro. Which mean my laptop has no long have MacOS operating system on it. I completely erased the hard drive and install Fedora 29 KDE.

As I checked out Fedora Project, and Project Magazine I found out that IBM is buying Red Hat. I was like “Oh. How would that effect Fedora?” I love Red Hat and Fedora that I must use RPM-Based Linuxes.

I did tried Ubuntu which is Debian-based with modification to simplicity Ubuntu. I like Ubuntu and use it lot. But My feeling of attachment to RPM-Based which what Fedora is. I do like OpenSuse and that what I would use but my MacBook Pro 9.1 (Mid-2011) refused to accept OpenSuse. I also tried Fedora Workstation which use Gnome as default but my MacBook Pro 91. (Mid-2011) refused to accept accept Workstation either. I only can use Fedora Spans.

I tried Fedora LXDE but it has buggy that the “Copy  & Paste” isn’t working really well. So I choose Fedora KDE. So far, so good.

I also like Fedora Cinnamon. But I choose Fedora KDE. I guess it is because I can customize my desktop. Sure Cinnamon can be customize the desktop, but KDE seem to has more offer to customize like set desktop icons to the right side of the screen like MacOS’ icon set on right than the usual icon on left side of the screen like Windows’ Desktop Icon set to the left side of the screen.

Now, let’s talk about my thoughts on IBM buying Red Hat and how it would effect Fedora?

I use Fedora for my personal daily use like social media, browsing the Internet, and playing games.

Historically, any companies that buy another companies that I really loves tend to be ended,  shutdown fast, changing or alternative stuff that I love.

What if IBM decided that Fedora are going to shut down and only focus to Red Hat Enterprise Linux? Sure I could use Red Hat Enterprise Linux, right? Wrong. This operating system is design for business that uses server. And, you have to pay subscription. Since I don’t use server, there is no need for me to use and pay subscription to Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

I really love Fedora and RPM-based and I can’t use OpenSuse as MacBook Pro 9.1 (Mid-2011) refused to accept this. If Fedora is gone. There is no another RPM-based Linuxes that design for home users like me….

I might really have to save money HARD to get a new laptop to be able to run OpenSuse.

The Dark Side about Modern Technology

I have been read both articles at The Downside of Social Media and Mom Speaks Out After Girl, 12, Sets Herself on Fire While Attempting Viral ‘Fire Challenge'.

I am a Generation X (Early to Mid 1960s to Early 1980s). Which mean I was born in 1979. There is no Internet until 1994. But I haven’t gotten my hands on the Internet until 1998. I haven’t got a smartphone (Internet supported) until 2011. As for basic smartphone (No Internet supported), I had it in about 2005 but my parents couldn’t afford it. So I lost my basic smartphone.

So I am glad that the world wasn't a bad influence on me… Yet. When I was a teenager and a child, only locally bad influence was upon me. By locally I mean the people around me and in my life.

In 2000 as I explored the internet, I was shocked by the unknown in the world. “People do this?” and “People do that?” and all stupid stuff in the world. I’ve learned how people can be. There is something I didn’t realize what could happen to the people in the world could happen to me, too.

I was about 35 or 36. I like to watch prank and stupid videos. I am now tired of that type of videos so I don’t watch them anymore. One thing I want to do this to myself. Oh hey! I am an adult! (And don’t try this at home! SERIOUSLY).

I put the salt on my palm hand and put the ice cube on my hand for a few seconds to see how long I can suffer. But I stopped when it getting worse. No, it DOESN’T sticks to my skin! And I am 99% safe. The only 1% safe is I got itchy palm hand for a few days. It’s was annoying.

But it CAN burn your skin and end up in an emergency room at the hospital. DON’T TRY THIS AT HOME! SERIOUSLY!

I don’t do any stupid stuff much. The only stupid I did was the ice cube with the salt on my palm hand.

Bullying. This only happened to me at school because of course there are no social media back then.

But the kids today have too much of bullying online and trolling to them. Check out the link I put below:

Through The Hard Times

I read a post at Preparing for hard times. I agree. The life is like a school. There are things we must learn to handle. There is no way to be 100% happy 24/7 this is impossible. We have a lot of negative and positive effect in our daily lives whatever we like it or not.

 

There are a lot of dark times we went through our lives. When people being mean to me, my mood switched to angry or sad, depending on the situations.

 

Sometimes we don’t always get what we want and we must accept the fact that we didn’t get what we want. Sometimes there are video games that I want but it end up either sold out or they don’t sell them anymore. When that happen, my mood can be switched to disappoint, sad, or upset.

 

As for living. I hate trailer homes. They are an ugly and cheap design that are easily breakable. Too small space in the trailer homes. I really want to live normal to bigger houses but we can’t because of our money and our incomes. Since I am stuck with what we have. With that, my mood usually unhappy, and frustrated.

 

I couldn’t find any jobs which make me feeling frustrated.

 

The main point is that we have to be accept with what we have, where we are, and who we are. We can’t change anything. We are stuck with what present to us.

 

Second point: Deal with it.

Second part B point: Handle with it.

Hopeful

Hopeful… What am I hoping for? Well, I hope I’ll make it through my health issues (kidney, diabetes, and blood pressures). I’ll be able to find a job that willing to hire me. Be able to buy a nice house for myself so I can live on my own. Find me a wife. A family? Not sure. I don’t like kids. I don’t know if I want my own kids or not.

Hopeful for the world. I hope there will be world peace soon. Middle East stop the war for once. The 46th US president will be 100x better than Donald Trump. No more sexism, no more racists, and no more rapes. North Korea finally stop making bombs and change to normal government. A good government for North Korea. Africa becomes peace with much better government.

That’s about it.
