Hey guys, Neil and I have talked about this new function in Linux Mint 20 briefly, and I, aloof Arch user that I am, didn’t care a bit about this backwards Ubuntu shitology. But, come one, thinking about it the warpinator is probably the most useful function in any Linux distro, ever!
You know the situation: “Hun, can you give me The Rise of Skywalker, please?” Without discussing why and what for our gf/bf/spouses need that shitflick, we usually quickly put it on a USB thumbdrive, or we take the whole external HD and give it to them … on physical media, right?
That’s kinda clunky and stupid, isn’t it? And time and again we’re thinking how cool it would be to have just a little local network, only between us and our better half’s computer, don’t we? For quick file sharing like that. And every time we’re stopped dead by our own lazyness. 😦
Well, warpinator is obviously another one of Mint’s clever, user-oriented, problem solvers. A intimate little network without all the connected geekyness and complexities of networking technology. And if I wasn’t way too lazy and apathetic to read into it I could explain to you how that shit werkz. But since I am in fact lazy and apathetic I can’t tell you much more about Mint’s latest party trick.
I try the warpinator once it made its way over to Arch. And then I can hopefully tell you more.
I’m pretty sure Trap, Neil and other Linux fans can tell us more about the warpinator … down below this post, in the comment section …
