RAMBOOT – booting Linux into a RAM disk…

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/12/14

Interesting as this should work for other Linux distributions as well: [WayBack] RAMBOOT – How to booting Debian into a RAM disc for speed and silence. How to RAMBOOT. It’s a poor man’s SSD, or a way to get SSD benefits on a laptop … – Isaac Kuo – Google+

Covers: [WayBack] RAMBOOT is an initrd hack that loads the entire OS partition in RAM, making it run like an extremely fast SSD, at the expense of perhaps 1.5+GB of RAM.

Copy files on Mac OS X using drag-and-drop | alvinalexander.com: secret is to hold the Option key

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/12/14

The Finder pure keyboard way of file copy+paste is using CommandC at the source position followed by CtrlCommandV in the destination position (in the destination position,  CommandV will do only a cut+paste) as the paste/copy decision is determined in the final stage.

This is unlike Windows, where CtrlC means copy, CtrlX means cut, and CtrlV finishes the initial action to copy+paste or cut+paste

If you combine mouse dragging, on the Mac it becomes Optiondrag, whereas on Windows it still is Ctrldrag.

I think the Windows ones are more consistent, especially when looking at them in table form:

Action Windows Mac
Keyboard-Only Mouse-drag Keyboard-Only Mouse-drag
copy+paste CtrlC; CtrlV Ctrldrag CommandC; Ctrl+CommandV Optiondrag
cut+paste (or move) CtrlX; CtrlV drag CommandC; CommandV drag
