Re: Safari, Ubuntu and a Void EULA

Since no one else is saying anything on this post. RE: Finux you said WINE solves a fair bit of the hacking issue Since WINE solves the hacking issues everything should be run through Wine or a wine clone.

Re: A Twitter Command for Your Terminal

I have the strange feeling that you took this from fsckin.com without credit. Oh wait, it is the exact same, word for word, until the last bit. Cmon man, give some credit.

Re: Safari, Ubuntu and a Void EULA

Putting Safari on my computer might help you hack it easier. As I see it free Widows software is full of spy ware and Mac stuff is not secure. This is just my opinion though.
