Re: Is Linux getting friendlier to portability?

Most importantly, a Windows program is bundled with its dependencies, This is only your wet wish, brother. Big percentage of Windows applications rely on libraries installed system-wide (c/win/system32 folder) which is just wrong, because there is no guarantee, that the actual DLL is really install...

Re: Is Linux getting friendlier to portability?

Basically, Linux is MORE friendlier to application bundles and addresses portability problem better than Windows. 1. It allows to clearly separate files which belong to application from the rest of the system. 2. It allows to easily create packages for all major Linux distributions (https://github....

Re: Windows File Manager (v3.0 open source!)

According to the README, one of the changes in the improved "v10.0" version is:
moved the ini file location to %AppData%\Roaming\Microsoft\WinFile
That suggests that the original_plus version is indeed portable. (AFAIK, in Windows 3.x days, storing settings in program folder was common practice.)

Re: Keppi (music visualizer)

Keppi 3.70 released. The youtube-dl updater stopped working in February, and this update fixes it. Full changelog: .NET Framework 4.5 is now required instead of 4.0. Fixed: the updater failed to check for updates starting from February 22. Fixed crash when Keppi doesn't find any playable network str...

Reiterating what __philippe mentioned above: if the AV has blocked the Meltdown patch from installing, the system isn't vulnerable to Total Meltdown.

Re: Meltdown & Spectre: major chip vulnerabilities alert

It has been discovered that Microsoft's Meltdown patch for Windows 7 caused a much worse vulnerability than Meltdown itself, called Total Meltdown. It has been fixed in a subsequent security update in March. Updating is extremely important!

Re: Is this site compatible with FF 59.1?

Windows 10 (64-Bit) fully patched & MSI Geforce 1070 (8GB) with latest NVidia drivers. Wow, you've got a powerful PC. :shock: I also have similar text rendering problems with Firefox 59.0.1. However, they also occur in many other websites, at least Reddit. I have font smoothing disabled in Windows ...

Re: Vivaldi - Opera Browser Alternative

Some other settings of the browser itself will also reset as you move (default search engine and homepage last I checked). Vivaldi doesn't lose them in my experience. Maybe because Vivaldi implements its own UI (including the search box) and therefore stores those preferences independently of Chrom...

Re: Vivaldi - Opera Browser Alternative

A general question regarding the portability of chrome-based browsers: The Vivialdi database-entry states that by moving the installation to another PC some settings are reset, including the list of installed extensions - due to chrome generating a hardware binding. That's right (for Vivaldi) - I t...

Re: VLC - media player

Whats the problem with the UI? I guess it would be faster to answer what's not a problem... First of all, getting video to show in true fullscreen (i.e. so that it really covers the entire screen, and there are no controls in the way) requires two keypresses. F11 to enter fullscreen mode, then Ctrl...

Re: VLC - media player

I tried out VLC 3.0.0.

Its UI is as terrible as ever. I don't like it at all.

I need to leave MPC-HC though, as it's no longer being maintained. Maybe I'll switch to mpv even on Windows... (I'm already using it on GNU/Linux)
