Sysadmin thoughts: Which OS .iso's should I bring for my vacation in case something breaks?

After fighting Linux configs all day yesterday I'm on the verge of trying NixOS again

Turns out, iOS has a background noise generator in its settings

Reading through my tweets today, I started a lot and didn't finish anything

Holy I don't even need netboot, iPXE supports remote iso boot by default. Why isn't this in the Hetzner (or any) docs?

I spent way too much time trying the QEMU approach before I remembered netboot.xyz

There is Microsoft's "Your Phone" and it is KDE Connect. This whole distro is the incarnation of the word rebranding. The "MS-Windows Support" in the settings opens - as expected - WineTricks.

It even comes with Cortana. Oh wait. I meant Helloa. Which requires a Google account (probably speech recognition API) and has pretty useless commands.

Some things to add: They say they support OneDrive (which doesn't run on Linux). It opens this (Gamba 3) Window. I will not test this out with my account, but it probably uses rclone or something.

1.14M of these downloads come from an unnamed country. I don't know if SourceForge just can't display those but to me this smells a little like arbitrary inflated downloads.

As a summary you could say. Everything as expected. Kubuntu with nice theme. But for only $35 more you get: Nothing much. It says there are 1.5M downloads and that we can check ourselves. I'm not sure I trust these statistics.

Microsoft Office included! As web links to their online office. Also offline Office! But it is OnlyOffice. As expected, Wine also included.

Android. Pressed some QEMU keys and keys and yes, it is just PrimeOS in QEMU. Works reasonably well.

Regarding the Android Support (which is highly praised on their website). It seems to use some bash script on top of www.primeos[.]in, which is completely ad-ridden. Let's see how well that works. Again, Gambas 3.

Okay the Settings application (and the Android Support) are built on top of gambas.sourceforge.net/en/main which I most definitely not expect. There seems to be original work in this walking copyright infringement.

PowerShell even opens PowerShell, and in /etc/os-release we can see the truth: It is just Kubuntu (Jammy) with a fancy theme.
