Linux btw.

See this?

Ya, that’s Orca’s desktop showing that her machine is running nonstop since 3 days, 3 hours and 52 minutes. What I did in that time was, of course blogging, pirating of movies, media consumption, reading and writing a lot of email and uploading and watching YouTube videos.

No, I’m not claiming to be a power user and I’m not trying to break longevity records, as I know people who seriously abuse their hardware and have their machines running since years without shutting them off a single time. What I’m doing is considered mom’n’dad computing, right? But I doubt, seriously having my doubts, that a Windows computer would still be running as perfect and fast as my MiniMax Linux main machine does … after 3 days. And my MiniMax desktop computer is running on fashionable girly Manjaro Linux with the newest and hottest kernel, not even a hardened server grade, Debian based professional Linux. Still my system is rock solid stable!

Soooo, what am I trying here? Just to show to all the negative types that we don’t need a super duper boring Debian to get a rock solid performance out of our computers. And first of all I wanna shut up all the naysayers who think one must use a certain Microsoft product in order to get satisfying results.

By now it’s 3 days, 4 hours and 20 minutes. =^.^= How are you doing?


  1. Wanna see a fun stat?
    “Time since boot: 17 days 23:46”
    That’s running Mac OS.
    On a 7-yr old laptop.
    Runs like the first day I got it.
    Rock solid UNIX foundation (a Linux cousin, if I am not mistaken)
    Every now and then, I reboot it just because they say you should do it.
    Ok, in the elapsed 17 days, the laptop was probably asleep 70% of the time.
    But it does wake up instantly, whenever I lift the screen lid.

    • Whoa! I’m impressed!

      Unfortunately not quite possible here since we got so many loadshedding powerouts lately. Also my machines receive regular updates, and some of them ask you to reboot. For example when you get a new kernel or sumsuch. Another reason for powering my computers down is to save money when I leave the house for more than half an hour. I’m a good citizen then and do my part in conserving energy.

      And yes, MacOS and Linux are both Unix systems and closer related than to the unworthy outsider Windows. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      And contrary to your mac museum piece my machines don’t get much off-time either. I use them permanently (hence no TV in our house) … or switch off.


    • Again not really possible at my location. Sooner or later each and every record breaking attempt will be ruined by the world’s most inefficient power provider. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
