Hello again, fellow Linux noobs.
Last I was here, there was a wubi (windows installer exe-file) for an old version or two of Linux... easy enough for Gramma....
but the thoroughly-modern much-more-sensible approach seemed to be to download several pieces of software that allow one to burn an ISO file to disc or USB, transfer that ISO file to the harddrive, and transform it into an onboard operating system....

NEWS 170930 about AndEX Nougat 7.1.2
My new build of Android x86_64 – android_x86_64-7.1.2-nougat-gapps-kernel-4.13.3-exton-170930 can be installed to hard drive or on a USB stick. You cannot run the system live.

So, I bought an iMac

27" iMac.
So, I will be even less inclined to participate here at LQ.

Couple of annoyances on this new host, but NBD for a Professional.

Why? You may axe.
One reason, Siri is fully integrated into the desktop. I can speak and it responds.
23 years in IT and I am tired of typing.

Peace Out!

Pay attention to ";" versus "&&" in bash aliases

Or maybe avoid it altogether, it's probably some sort of well known linux/unix rule that someone wrote a long time ago.

It's possibly something that seldom ever is a problem to anyone, but it was for me.

I had this as an alias for "mv"

Code:
echo "use mv -i to avoid overwriting files with the same name; this is an alias to mv -i" ; mv -i
Then at some point I was doing an one liner that would scan symlinks' "realpaths"...
