Is it possible to make a persistent portable OS installed on a USB flash drive or an SD card with a USB adapter?

Which solution is faster and reliable?
Will it act as a normal HDD?

Also will I encounter any slowdowns doing this?

>>62099918
Yes you can, you *might* experience some fun in going from system to system due to hardware, but you might not.

USB would be the way to go over SD.

It will act as a normal drive.

If it's USB3 it will be fine for speed, but USB drives dont have the same lifespan as an SSD so it will degrade faster.
>>
>>62099918
both will work
i have a full installation of Arch on a 64GB microSD card and it works really well
if im on my work laptop i use the sd card slot with an adapter
on the desktop i use an usb adapter
both boot like a regular hdd
you barely notice that its running off of a slower storage since most of the shit you do is in RAM, some programs take a bit longer to open but thats no biggie
>>
>>62099943
I thought a USB would have a much higher read and write cycles then a SD card.

Because every scenario where the letter G gets added in as non-silent letter it becomes an unpronounceable mess which will never catch on. You can't top "Linux" as a name, it's unique and clear.

Are Macs not such a meme as I thought?

The base model mac wins in almost every important category over the XPS:

>Better CPU and GPU performance over even the top tier XPS.
>Much better screen with more area, the QHD+ screen on the XPS wins, but is much much more expensive.
>Build quality miles better, checked for myself in a store.
>Trackpad and keyboard (subjectively) better.
>A very fast SSD, however the upgrade to 250gb is an insane 400€ more.
>Two full speed Thunderbolt 3 ports vs. the XPS 13's one at half speed.
>Much better speakers

Where the XPS wins:

>User-replacable parts, but it's just the SSD and the WiFi card.
>Smaller bezels, but a smaller screen overall with a THICC bottom bezel.
>More IO, but you need a dongle with both laptops.
>Quieter and does not throttle, the Mac still wins in performance.
>Is not only for women and homosexuals.

But the Mac is much more expensive, right? Well where I live the base model Mac is 1440€ and the base XPS 13 is 1530€ (i5, 8GB, 250GB)

So does the Mac have the XPS beat? What would you guys go with, ignoring the OS?

Macbook Pro easily is the best choice for 90% of all use cases.
People hating or it are usually just poorfags stuck with chinkshit or emotional hatefags that fail to see the value in a product because they don't like the brand.
>>
Yep. You did what 90% of this board can't manage to do and actually do some research. Also keep in mind the MBP will retain it's value drastically better than the XPS. In a few years that XPS will be worth 200-300 bucks (look at why used thinkpads are such a good deal) meanwhile you can sell the macbook in 3-4 years for 700-800.
>>
There's just one thing I'd get an older MacBook Pro over the current models for: the keyboard.
It's not really a pleasant experience to type on this almost flat surface with near to no key-travel.
Apple's next idea will be to integrate an iPad as a keyboard replacement. Mark my words.

Well we're certainly using gnu software, even if it's only to compile our kernel.

For the last few weeks I've been studying the SICP meme. And boy, it's a lot of fun. Thanks for pointing me int the right direction, /g/.

However, apparently nobody is using MIT Scheme for anything apart from learning SICP. So I'm wondering what I should learn next:
CL, Chicken Scheme, Racket or Clojure?

I had a brief look at Clojure and found it pretty interesting. Check my FizzBuzz:

(defn FizzBuzz []
"Just the usual FizzBuzz..
But multiline comments are kinda cool, eh?"
(doseq [i (range 1 101)]
(println
(cond
(zero? (mod i 15)) 'FizzBuzz
(zero? (mod i 3)) 'Fizz
(zero? (mod i 5)) 'Buzz
:else i))))


But I'm also considering Racket, since it seems pretty cool. I'd love something that not so many quirks, is actually used in the wild, has decent Libraries, can be used for many different things and most important: has good web frameworks.


Any recommendations and opinions welcome...
