RISC-V is seen as the future with more modern and more open design than ARM and zero security risks like ARM has. ARM is so risky, I'd never risk (pun intended) developing something new with it, only something old.
Oh yeah, forgot about that!
Still very low end devices, but moving up fast. I'm really excited to see the first SBCs and desktops built off of it.
@scottalanmiller Hi Scott, thanks for the post, unfortunately this works not on Mac OS X Mojave. I'm able to create a user but not able to login with this user account. It stucks after the login prozess. Is there any workaround?
I switched offices for a couple days to one where I'm on Ubuntu rather than my Mac. I'll look into it once I'm back to my Mac.
It's my device, if I want Joe from the mall kiosk to replace whatever in my device, that is my right to do, and I'd be the responsible person who risk the device being broken further or compromised with non-oem parts.
On the other side of the conversation I understand Apple's reasoning for this and it's sounds like they simply want users to use OEM only parts, but they use this guise of "for security".
Which also kind of irks me. . .
Why do you call it a guise? If Apple doesn't make the interconnect APIs available, who knows what those knockoff people are making.
I'm back to the point where the device should likely just hit you with a warning every 24 hours that you might have compromised shit installed - but I'm guessing that Scott and others will be against that level of frequency.
I'm against a one time notice of there being a perceived security issue in the device.
I'm not against a notification -- but every 24 hours seems excessive. Maybe a 30 second notification every reboot -- something that doesn't require any action other than waiting the 30 seconds.
But this is just an "you may have been" there is no proof that something has been compromised. Just the possibility because a non approved person or company has worked on property you own.
I think any notification that would force you to wait, period would be overly intrusive.
Right, you MAY have been compromised with Apple's own stuff, too. But they would "conveniently" not show a warning. Therefore the warning would have nothing to do with risk, and everything to do with FUD.
We're using Jamf, and it is pretty decent. With recent changes to permissions in macOS, a solution like Jamf will be the only way you can actually control certain settings. Apple is no longer content with merely ignoring professional users, but is now actively trying to eliminate them.
I think that that actually started long ago.
10.12.x is much worse that what came before. There are a significant portion of system level settings that you cannot touch even as root.
I don't think Docker is going to eliminate VirtualBox, but it is going to make canned trials more the norm. Being able to download and launch a containerized trial version of software will make this so much easier.
I agree, two different shoes to fill. Both have a useful place.
Personally I like crash plan too. This for my clients who wants to use s3, for windows I've used cloudberry and I love the software for the interface and options to connect to different things like S3, glacier etc. and glad that they released one for Mac as well.
