>Windows partition for the normie work stuff to get all the advantages of software compatibility and AI assistants like
>Linux partition for everything else
You get to both keep your private life private AND take advantage of the best AI tools while only letting the botnet know the stuff that's already public, which has the nice side-effect of presenting glowies with a normie image as to not get added to the "fucko has something to hide" list.
Plus it allows compartmentalization between the two areas of your life, which is always better than mixing them up, for several reasons.
Have full-disk encryption on each partition individually, so that nothing from one can see or interact with anything on the other. Ideally on two separate drives, or even better, two separate machines.
Explain how this isn't the superior setup.
>Explain how this isn't the superior setup.
super pain in the fucking ass to reboot
oh, also windows will force you to do updates sometimes and you can't even shut down / reboot until it's done
unless you're doing hardcore gaming, just use a VM
gives you total control over windows, can use it for small tasks without reboots, etc
and if it wants to update at a bad time, just suspend the VM and go about your life
Can't you disable automatic updates? (I'm still on W7, I don't really know).
LTSC shouldn't have much of that problem, no?
That is, assuming the next LTSC version will support this AI stuff.
I need as much performance as possible for music production, so VMs aren't an option unfortunately.
Having to reboot can indeed be an annoyance, but I like to keep the two spheres separate, and that includes the time.
Not being able to access my distracting private stuff while working, and only accessing it at designated times when I have to make the deliberate choice of starting a "leisure" session, is a bigger advantage to me than the downside of having to reboot.
>I need as much performance as possible for music production, so VMs aren't an option unfortunately.
linux is pretty popular on studios for music production to get the least latency without xruns, but if that matters so much to you, maybe you should get a second machine for music production
The software I rely on has no Linux alternative, and I don't want to rely on WINE/bottles for stuff that's already crash-prone as is).
If having to reboot gets too annoying I can always just get my old laptop and use Linux on that, but tbh the friction between me and the Linux partition with the distracting shit can be good for those moments of weakness where I feel like wasting 5 minutes doing something else (which inevitably turn into 5 hours).
Windows for gaming and normi stuff like video calls
Linux to deny the holocaust on twitter
Dual booting is never a good solution. It's such a bother to disrupt everything you're doing just to do one thing in the other partition that you end up never switching partitions.
No, I need instant access to my e-boi pornography no matter what I'm currently doing.
You'll have other things to worry about in prison
Prison? It's perfectly legal which is exactly why I don't need to obsess over privacy
if you need "the best AI tools" (read: shit you can find on stackoverflow and any pajeet tutorial website except written in the style of a 103 IQ middle-school book report) then you are too dumb to need a computer at all
It's not about needing them to help me program. It's about them helping me save time doing menial tasks. For instance the presentation video (and the initial Bing AI presentation) showed it being able to read a long document and summarize it for the key information you want, which saves a ton of time.
You know you'd still have to check whether the summarization is correct, otherwise you'll take the blame if it got fucked up no matter where
Obviously I'm not going to rely on it for mission-critical information, but for things where any inaccuracy isn't a big deal, it's absolutely a time saver.
Like if I have a book on music production techniques, I can give it to the assistant and ask it to give me ideas for an interesting process based on X, and if it outputs something interesting it doesn't matter whether it's accurate or not.
I can't tell if serious or bait or just an inept Microshart shill
you mean paranoid pedophilia?
>keep your private life
Heh good one
The point is to keep the two separate.
Did you read the post?
The entire world is pretty much unanimously agreeing that these tools are extremely useful, and people are already increasing their productivity and income, but please, keep telling yourself that it can't be useful in any way to anyone. I'm sure molding your beliefs around meme BOT contrarianism will serve you very well.
>The point is to keep the two separate.
That's a pretty retarded point though. Are you going to reboot into Windows each time you need the AI? And how are you going to keep it separate from you and your data if you use it at all?
Already explained in the OP and here:
The whole reason I'm considering Linux is because everything in Windows is pretty much part of the botnet.
Anything I do on it is done on the assumption that it's being monitored and recorded.
I don't care if Microsoft has my work in some database. I doubt that it's going to result in any tangible difference in my life.
In other words, anything that I don't want Microsoft to have I will do it in the Linux partition, so the things I will do in Windows are from the start the things that I don't have privacy and security concerns about.
The reddit midwittery coming off your posts is strong enough to choke an ox
Do you have an actual point or are you just going to spout meme buzzwords to pretend you're not a retard and preserve your ego?
>these tools are extremely useful
>people are already increasing their productivity and income
Apple, JP Morgan, Verizon, and Amazon have already ban OpenAI for their employees over privacy concerns.
Is there a way to natively snap windows horizontally in Windwos 10 for a monitor in portrait mode? You can snap them vertically but I can't figure out how to do it horizontally.
bad for YOU 😀
>reality: stay booted into Windows most of the time because rebooting is a pain the ass and Windows can do the things only Windows can do while also being able to do most the things Linux can do but shittally.
But all my files, browser sessions, bookmarks, and programs used for non-work activities will be on the Linux partition.
If there are non-work programs that I can't live without that I can't have on Linux, I'm gonna put them in a Windows VM inside the Linux partition, so that I can keep the main Windows one clean and fully separate from the Linux one.
if you really need windows, invest in a non-poorgay machine and run it in a VM where you can keep the botnet safely contained
But then I wouldn't have any compartmentalization.
If my goal is to keep my work separate from everything else in my life, I can't have my office in the middle of the game room.
Also, I'd like them to be separately encrypted so they never interact with each other, mainly for security reasons.
Could you elaborate on the offline computer for archiving documents?
Can't that be replaced with a live OS that mounts the system drive and an external hard drive that's only used for this?
Better compartimentalize with 3 PCs, a laptop running W11/12 for ai/work, another laptop for archiving personal documents (not connected to the internet) and a strong pc with linux and virtualized windows 10 for games.
Because its a giant fucking waste of time when you have to completely change contexts by dropping everything and booting in to another OS
Its 2023 for fuck sake, use a VM
But switching contexts is one of the main points of doing this.
But then you're locked out of all of your tools/applications/whatever when you're not in whatever OS.
When setting up a VM takes even less time, it just seems out right silly not to do so.
Whatever OS you find yourself in the most, have that as your host, then the other as a guest when you need it.
I can install something that gets the job done in the Linux partition in case I need to quickly whip something up while I'm not in a work session.
Bitwig doesn't replace Ableton+Max but it's good enough to lay down ideas and test things out.
Same with IDEs. I haven't looked into this yet, but I'm sure there's something that lets me program on Linux lol.
>When setting up a VM takes even less time, it just seems out right silly not to do so.
Setup time isn't important. I'm only concerned with the advantages and disadvantages when actually using the setup.
>Whatever OS you find yourself in the most, have that as your host, then the other as a guest when you need it.
Ideally that's going to be the Windows one for work, but I can't have a Linux VM in it because that would defeat the purpose of using Linux in the first place, since it's safe to assume that the Windows host will be able to access at least some of the data of the VM (if not by CV, at least by monitoring keystrokes, if not by accessing the files themselves).
It also eliminates the compartmentalization that introduces friction between me and all the distractions in the Linux partition during my work sessions.
If I'm working and I think about something in the Linux partition and want to check it, I don't want to have it 2 clicks away for me to open it and get distracted for an hour. If I'm working, work stuff is the only thing that should be easily accessible to me.
Bro, if this is 90% really about you being ADHD, just buy a fucking laptop for work and have only your work shit on it like any reasonable person.
I mentioned the possibility of using my old laptop for Linux if switching sessions gets too annoying, but it's still a much less effective solution at separating the two spheres (pulling up the non-work laptop is much easier than shutting down my session and rebooting), and it detracts from the budget of the desktop I'm building, which needs to be as performant as I can afford in order to handle the heavy music production sessions and sound design.
With every requirement taken into consideration, I still haven't seen a better solution than the one in the OP, as every other suggestion falls short in at least one meaningful way.
I have a separate laptop in a different room with it's own desk for my work.
I have a space for work, and a space for my shit.
I have no fucking clue how people do this shit all on one computer and not feel like they're still working when they're off the clock.
That would probably be even better, but unfortunately it's not an option in my current situation.
Make it happen.
I'm genuinely serious about this. Set up the series of goals needed to beget it.
The main obstacle is that I'm poor and still live at home, so I need to maximize my productivity in order to get my life in order and eventually move out.
But this is getting too off-topic now.
Na, in a lot of ways its actually the core of the topic, as context DOES matter a lot.
While I still believe what I said is more optimal, I can totally get in your case why you're arguing for what you are.
Best of wishes and luck mate.
Appreciate the kind and encouraging words friend.
Have a great whichever time of day it is where you are.
Besides some edge cases I don't have much use for Windows so it shits on a drive that's not my main boot drive.
>imagine still using Linux in 2034-11
In the current year of our lord 2023, is there any way to simultaneously use Windows and Linux without:
1. Rebooting and selecting the OS from a boot loader
2. Not using one as a guest and one as a host via a VM
The next best thing I can think of is just setting up a literal linux PC separately and RDP'ing into it over my local network. There's still personal and professional commitments that force me to use Windows, but there are large chunks of work I do that would be better done on Linux.
Run both as VMs inside a third OS of your choice.
OP here. Thanks everyone for participating ITT and helping me make a better decision.
I'm going now.
