I got the chance to update to version 10. Currently running as a VM in Hyper-V on Ubuntu 16.04. A couple things to note...
Don't forget to save a copy of any theme folder you may have created and paste it pack into the /nextcloud/themes folder
You'll have to go back into your config file and enter the theme folder name back in as this got removed during the upgrade process
I proceeded with the upgrade via the web page. Once the new v10 folder was created and config file and theme folder copied back, I simply launched the upgrade from the web page. It's a very small install so only took a few minutes to complete.
I had installed the "disclaimer" experimental app on the previous v9.0.53 install and not really surprised that the new install got rid of that. If there was one request I would make it would be to include some version of the "disclaimer" app as a supported app in a future release. This is a very easy way to make sure the terms & conditions are available right from the application.
Will report back if there are any issues but so far so good! Nice job!
@Dashrender Not that I'm aware of. Although I think he uses the synced favorites in Firefox and Chrome. I don't believe either of those care much about what is in the Favorites folder of Window's user profiles. (I could be wrong)
True, and since you fixed it you won't be able to tell now, but I wonder if he had an error in the Windows Sync manager for Favorites (normally shows as an icon in the tray near the clock.
I don't understand the issue. Is this ONLY happening on specific workstations? As in mfg/model?
I ask, because, I have installed Server 2012 R2 so many times and have also set up NIC Teaming via Server Mangler.... using an Integrated nic with a NIC on an add-in card. Created External vswitches and never had any issues what so ever.
The only issues I have run across were due to them being Broadcom NICs and having to disable Virtual Machine Queues option in the advanced properties of the NIC on the hosts. (before any teaming or anything is done). This needs to be done via Powershell on hosts running Core as well. I still have the commands handy if needed.
Do you have an example of any real world bespoke software development where a native app would have been beneficial or is beneficial compared to what is available on modern web apps?
Up until recent years the only way I can think of to develop cross-platform applications from the getgo were using Java, or Adobe Air. Of course it could be done with C, C++ if the programmers were careful.
The only reason I can come up with is programmer resources, convenience, time, budget.
I developed a C# app that only one employee needed for a specific purpose on their Windows workstation. This is when MS had released C# Express for free. Having come from Visual Basic, the move to C# wasn't as bad as trying to move to C++ so it was fairly easy to get used to.
Given the fact that the app was only needed in Windows, and that my skill was VB and resources C# Express was free, there was no reason to plunge gung-ho into trying to create this master, cross-compiling, super web app universal tool for this situation. It would have cost me time, more learning, more testing, additional environments to develop and test compiled code, etc etc. So it made sense on many fronts to just create the WIndows-only C# Express app.
In any case I can't really answer your question because the only real limitation regarding cross platform is the availability and/or need for the OS-specific API. So no I can't think of an OS-specific API or library that would be absolutely required for a project and thus make it impossible to program for other OSes too.
Perhaps something with graphics subsystems or deep file system abilities. If you have an app that specifically deals with enhanced features of Ext4, then perhaps there might be no way to get all the same functions on a Windows port on NTFS?
For example Ext2Fsd is a Windows app that only has basic Ext4 support and can only have read-only access to a Ext4 drive. OS API limitations?
These deeper APIs are the only thing I can think of that make an app locked to a platform. A "registry editor" app makes sense in Windows, not Mac and Linux. Linux firewall tools or a CRON utility doesn't make sense in Windows.
Now I'm guessing converting the system say SQL or SQLExpress or MySQL is out of the question, correct?
Probably, or they would have. But I'm interested to know why, as I'm not aware of any situation where JetDB is functional or possible, that SQL Server Express can't do it for free. But there must be some functional difference somewhere, I'm guessing.
I'm guessing that whoever made the JetDB a while ago never thought it would be used like this or this long so the thought of moving it to SQLExpress hasn't been thought of.
Also, nearly anyone can setup an Access created JetDB, but those same people probably have no clue how to transfer it into a SQLExpress
I learned Hyper-V inside and out when I was studying for my MCSA 2012. I have given up on Hyper-V. Other Hypervisors are so much better and have less issues. I tried using Hyper-V for about a year, it just isn't as good as other products out there.
In what ways? and at what scale?
For starters the compatibility with non-Windows Machines suck.
The screen is also relatively easy to remove should you ever need to add upgrades. Unscrew the kickstand (which I talk more about below), attach a suction cup to the screen, pull and voila - the Elite x2's guts are yours to poke and prod.
But damn.. this is still a super premo price tag.. $1350 for tablet and another $200 for the aluminum keyboard.. damn.
that said, I think I paid $1300 for my convertible Yoga Pro i7 4 years ago.
Now if that business initiative is from the IT department, shame on you. If it's from upper management saying "No, don't do an upgrade yet" then shame on them.
I'm not going there. I will say though that I did a tour of the Red Bull Formula 1 factory a few months ago. They're obviously on the bleeding edge of modern engineering, but I noted that even they had a few workstations still running XP.
You know, I'm not surprised. This happens all over the place. The computer "works good enough" and it's not something that the mechanics care about so they don't worry about getting the latest and greatest.. but hot damn.. if Snap On comes out with a new wrench, you can better well believe they will be getting that new tool because it's what they know, it's what they like and personally care about.
