Windows 10 v1903, v1809 is said to break eventvwr custom views


I tested this and cannot confirm it. The custom views I created before installing KB4503293 work well and also the ones I created a minute ago after reading the article. I'd suppose that the SSU needed for the patch wasn't installed before on systems where the error occured.

Performance analysis


I had a 2-day inhouse workshop with a Microsoft PFE and found out a lot about our logon processes. I used Xperf and WPR/WPA in the past, those tools generata massive amounts data so it's best practice to learn what to trace and how to analyze the data. I plan to script it to have at least the basic performance data available all the time.

Firefox Now Available with Enhanced Tracking Protection by Default Plus Updates to Facebook Container, Firefox Monitor and Lockwise

https://blog.mozilla.org/blog/2019/06/04/firefox-now-available-with-enhanced-tracking-protection-by-default/

To really protect people, Firefox needs to establish a new standard that puts people’s privacy first.

That’s why today Firefox is rolling out Enhanced Tracking Protection to all new users on by default: to make it harder for companies to track their every move.

South Korea Moves to Linux


And they'll get a significant security boost in return.
Moving to Linux will be fairly pricey in the short term, as it is expected to cost more than a half billion dollars (including hardware upgrades). With that said, Choi Jang-hyuk, Service Bureau Chief of the Ministry of the Interior and Safety, is predicting a long term cost savings by switching to an open source operating system.

Whether the South Korean government truly saves money from this move remains to be seen, but one thing is for sure -- they will no longer be beholden to Microsoft. That could be priceless.

Hmmm... Microsoft contributing code to Linux kernel? Microsoft allowing Linux to run in Windows? Microsoft suddenly loves Linux and OpenSource?

This is making me nervous. MS is a HUGE corporation that has the same Prime Directive as all other corporations...
  • MAKE MO' MONEY
...while offering less value through cheap products and underpaid employees (or foreign slave workers as in China and other places).

Yes, definitely making me nervous.

ungoogled-chromium


A lightweight approach to removing Google web service dependency

ungoogled-chromium is Google Chromium, sans dependency on Google web services. It also features some tweaks to enhance privacy, control, and transparency (almost all of which require manual activation or enabling).

ungoogled-chromium retains the default Chromium experience as closely as possible. Unlike other Chromium forks that have their own visions of a web browser, ungoogled-chromium is essentially a drop-in replacement for Chromium.

ungoogled-chromium is available in several software repositories:

Arch Linux: Available in AUR as ungoogled-chromium
NOTE: ungoogled-chromium-bin is not officially part of ungoogled-chromium. Please submit all issues to the maintainer of the PKGBUILD.
Gentoo Linux: ::chaoslab overlay maintains an unofficial ungoogled-chromium ebuild.
GNU Guix: Available as ungoogled-chromium.
macOS cask: Available as eloston-chromium

Download binaries from here

Windows 10 is the same (evolved) code base as the code base of Windows 8.x, 7, Vista, XP, 2000, and NT, where each generation saw significant refactoring, and added substantial new features, improved performance and hardware support as well as security, all while maintaining a very high degree of backward compatibility.

Most of the kernel (ntoskrnl.exe) is written in the C programming language. You can find leaked copies of the Windows Research Kernel even on Github[1] [1]and see for yourself: although quite dated and largely incomplete, this code should give significant insights.

See for example the source code that implements the familiar Registry, a kernel component known internally as the configuration manager, “Cm”, in [2]wrk-v1.2/[3]base/[4]ntos/config.

Most of what runs in kernel mode is also written in the C programming language (most file systems, networking, most drivers…) with some C++ here and there.

As you go up the stack towards user mode, and towards more recent developments, you’ll find somewhat less C and somewhat more C++.

As a side note, what most people don’t realize is the sheer size of Windows: this is a gigantic project of truly epic proportions.

The full source tree with all the code, test code and everything that together constitutes the “Windows source code” is more than a half terabyte in size, in more than 4 million files. You can spend a year (seriously) just drilling down the source tree, more than a half million folders containing the code for every component making up the OS workstation and server products and all their editions, tools, and associated developement kits, and see what’s in there, read the file names and try to figure out what does what. It would take a life (or two) to read it all.

Below is a screenshot which may or may not depict statistics about a full Windows enlistment (source code, test files, build tools, everything)

One one occasion, I left a Git branch stall for a few weeks and, when I got back to it, it was behind by almost 60,000 commits. I think one can argue that a single person cannot possibly read all the code that is added to Windows every day, let alone read what was written during the past thirty years!

Back to our topic, if you look at a Windows 10 “DVD” and consider what programming languages were used to create everything that’s on that disk, my guess is that 98% of it would be C and C++, with C getting the lion’s share.

The .NET BCL and other managed libraries & frameworks that ship inbox are typically written in C#, but they only represent tiny drops in a giant sea of C code with a few islands of C++. They also come from a different division (the developper’s division, DevDiv) and their code is not part of the Windows source tree.

Nun meine Erfahrungen zeigen das genaue Gegenteil: es laufen lediglich die Spiele die einen #Linux Client haben der Rest zeigt nicht mal eine Fehlermeldung. #Lutris habe ich ausprobiert und ähnliches Bild, nichts geht.

Ich habe sämtliche #Anleitungen und #Foren die letzten Tage durchkämmt, nirgends auch nur ansatzweise etwas was zu meinem #problem helfen könnte.

Langsam habe ich das Gefühl überall klappts, nur bei mir nicht. Ist etwas deprimierend.
