    GNU/Linux hardware part2 - tuxedo computers

    Thank you for the update on Tuxedo Computers. I do appreciate your frank assessment.

    I did look at the Tuxedo Computer, English version, website and, and agree with your current assessment.

    It looks impressive and professional, and I think it is well worth it for GNU/Linux people to support something like that.
    Keep us posted on any reviews from individuals who have used a Tuxedo Computer or other notable items you want to bring out.

    A word on partitioning and permissions (for newbies)

    Well, if the disk is empty anyways, it does not hurt to try and learn the first time around. You don't break anything by trying as long as you don't touch the EFI boot.

    If you don't succeed the first time and break the boot or something, you can try again. Besides, the post is not meant for ultra newbies, but generally people who don't know these things already. It's generally more dangerous to use auto-partitioning than to fail at manual partitioning.

    The contradiction here is; the utter newbie does not know enough to make the choices needed when partitioning manually. I remember being a newbie and doing it manually and completely trashing everything.

    SystemFree (aka sysf), the systemd replacement

    I do not have the programming knowledge, nor experience, in giving you intellectual or practical input on how to program a replacement for Systemd with a SystemFree init system. But, I see the need for a SystemFree init system of some form to replace Systemd. So, I am behind the concept and will try and keep abreast of the work by you and others. Keep us informed by your blog or through threads here on LQ.

    Sounds like a good idea. Maybe your init will do to systemd what systemd did to sysV: just appear out of nowhere and take over without anyone knowing why. Works for me.
