    The picture you provided doesn't work because most respected developers in the first world would agree that the best portable development machine would be a macbook pro. SO you're just spewing nonsense.

      Serious question: what's the appeal of using Mac? What do they do better? Also, "development machine" seems like a comical way to describe a computer. How does using a general purpose computer for development impose any restrictions on ordinary, "non development" tasks?

        >What do they do better?
        Serious answer: If you're talking about developing on a desktop machine. Linux is king.

        As for development on the go, the M series lineup of macbook pros just provide the best battery life to performance ratio. As much as I fricking hate apple I could not deny the reality that their machines last longer both in performance and the hardware is good. They're still israelited for having shit repairability and the closed ecosystem is a c**t but I'm sorry... they really are the best deal if you want serious programming on the go.

        Personally, I dont think the Maxs are worth it because it just heats up and uses extra power for not much in return unless you want to run high-end LLMs on your laptop for some reason (just set up a rig and connect to it remotely).

          to be fair, they've massively simplified the user-facing settings and locked down the OS filesystem partially BECAUSE of the third party tweaks and resulting system instability.
          Don't get me wrong, I think macOS is getting worse with each release but I at least understand their line of thinking, unlike Windows which sometimes leave me wondering if the developers actually even used the shit they've designed.

        the only reason why it works so well is that hardware and software were made for each other. what other os do you even know that can run on M2 chip? none. if you put windows on a mac machine it'd literally run two times worse when it comes to performance and battery life. and I have to admit it's a privilege to have an ecosystem like that because they just have to design their OS for a couple of different machines instead of thousands of different ones like Linux/windows

    >you must pick one OS
    UEFI could boot straight into a hypervisor monitor, sort of like a gamer overclocker BIOS that operates more like VirtualBox with more hardware passthrough. It could run from an ESP on an SSD so the firmware can easily get security updates. Switching between Windows and Linux would get reduced to keyboard shortcuts and the OS wars would finally be over.

      honestly not a bad idea
      do you envision the operating systems going to sleep or both running all the time
      if the latter then you would need quite a bit of extra crap for providing virtual devices etc.

      • 1 month ago
        Anonymous

        Multiple guest operating systems would run at the same time. RAM and storage would have to be allocated up front but other devices like network adapters, CPUs, GPUs, etc. could be shared transparently. The hypervisor could probably assign optional usage quotas and handle low power states like when suspending to RAM or hibernating to disk.

          running at the same time would not clash well with having a lot of passthrough
          suspending the guests and moving all devices to the other guest and resuming it would be doable easily

            >running at the same time would not clash well with having a lot of passthrough
            That would depend on the hardware extensions supported. You need a way to split up and schedule resources and apply usage quotas. If the hypervisor is mediating by assigning a virtual device to each VM anyways there won't be direct conflict for physical hardware. Each OS only "sees" the hypervisor container it lives in.

            >suspending the guests and moving all devices to the other guest and resuming it would be doable
            Yes. This was already done on netbooks back in the day to switch between WinXP and OEM programs loaded from firmware or a second disk partition. It would halt execution of one OS then resume in the other. It wasn't very stable.
            >easily

            Anonymous

            You can pass through a whole device unmediated which is probably what you're thinking of, but that takes it away from the host and other guests. On the other hand a mediated passthrough will report most or all capabilities and specs of the physical device to guests but acts like a slice of it from the perspective of the host. This way the host and guest can both use the device at the same time.

            Performance could suffer if you're trying to run heavy workloads in both host and guest at the same time, or in two VMs. But you get the same problem running multiple heavy apps on anything.

    this deference of responsibility for keeping packages up to date
    this inability to finally move to apt and not constantly yelling how you cant use apt use it in scripts
    this overly opinionated adjusting of packages from the upstream
    this slow package manager that takes forever to do updates even on serious hardware
