ms windows 10 windows security core isolation memory integrity #security feature #sysadmin

you may like to try and enable the ms #windows 10 windows security core isolation memory integrity security feature that uses hardware virtualization and Hyper-V to protect Windows kernel mode processes from the injection and execution of malicious or unverified code.

however you may not be able to enable it if you have certain Ricoh, SunPlus or ZTE hardware drivers installed

there is no such thing as the perfect gnu/linux #desktop ! but @oraclelinux, @ibm @redhat and @canonical @xubuntu are as close as you can get

the perfect gnu/linux #desktop just does not exist ! but @oraclelinux, @ibm @redhat and @canonical @xubuntu are as close as you can get

however

oracle linux and ibm red hat linux only run GNOME which uses 4G of RAM which make them unusable on sub £500 hardware and have never been able to run chromium however MS has now fixed this with edge

xubuntu solves the MEMORY problem with XFCE but then pre-installs a lot of AUTOSTART garbage such as SNAP, SPICE & UNATTENDED UPGRADE that use up to 50% CPU for no reason

UU is garbage for THREE reasons

  • it uses 50% CPU
  • it breaks aptitude
  • it doesnt actually install any updates

if you are getting any of these problems or errors

# aptitude safe-upgrade
E: Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock-frontend. 
It is held by process 3349 (unattended-upgr)
E: Unable to acquire the dpkg frontend lock (/var/lib/dpkg/lock-frontend), is another process using it?

then i suggest uninstalling it

# aptitude remove unattended-upgrades
