    Microsoft to Remove Ability to Install Win 11 Pro Without Being Online and Signing in to Microsoft Account

    Can Windows 11 Home join a domain? Last I checked it couldn't. Therefore there's every chance that running the latest OOBE you have no option but to create a Microsoft account under Windows 10 Home, unless you resort to third party hacks via your chosen image writing software. Which won't help...

    i must say, with the latest round of updates Konsole under KDE Neon really is fully featured. There's even the ability to add all of your frequently used (or easily forgotten) commands in the terminal software itself:

    The clue is in the .deb download, it's called 'ipscan'. You should also be able to open terminal and enter 'sudo apt install ipscan'.

    I also did an 'apt-cache search ipscan' and it's available in the Ubuntu repositories to be installed via apt.

    Apt will be pulling updated libraries and dependencies as well as the actual software directly from the Ubuntu repositories or the PPA that was added at the time the software was installed using apt. Deb is software that's actually packaged into a convenient installer, generally software...

    No, apt is another form of package management. Essentially another method of software installation.

    There's nothing wrong with a .deb, don't listen to the purists. A .deb is no different to a .msi under Windows or a .dmg under MacOS and is still installed using the operating system's package manager.

    Just installed the .deb of Angry IP Scanner on the Pi400 not a problem in the world. Download the .deb installer, open the .deb installer, the package manager does the rest no different to Windows:

    Is it really that hard to install a .deb? You can do it via the GUI and it's still managed by the package manager:

    They're installed along side each other as various applications use differing .NET dependencies.

    I have no problem with applications being installed in their correct hierarchy under Linux. Games are under 'Games', multimedia applications are under 'Multimedia', tools are under 'Tools', etc. Furthermore, software can be shifted around regarding categories after installation. However, the...

    Winget is a great idea, the problem is: How many people actively use it? How many people even know it exists and how populated are the repositories? If people start installing software under Windows via a shell interface, can they stop bitching about using terminal under Linux to install...

    The context is pretty clear. If you implied something else I'd love to know just what it was you implied, as I'm not seeing it:

    The last time it happened, I believe it was Norton AV products that were using client machines to mine bitcoin.
