    Windows updates have screwed me big time multiple times, especially since 10.

    Update 1809 left my windows partition unbootable, and trying to install it fresh resulted in an error about being unable to find media drivers. I tried everything to fix it. Eventually had to plug the HDD into an entirely different PC, install windows on that, then switch it back. Worked just fine after that. Also back when I dual booted off the same drive, Windows kept wiping grub from my Linux install when it updated. It shouldn't have been an issue with my hardware, everything in my PC is reasonably modern.

    Also as the other poster mentioned, WSL has terrible performance. You'd be better off running a headless VM and SSH'ing into it.

  2. Comment on 4chan is splitting into 2 sites - 4channel.org for SFW Boards and 4chan.org for NSFW Boards in ~misc

    A good chunk of the "SFW" boards would not be considered SFW by any reasonable metric. I wouldn't get caught dead browsing /co/ or /a/ at work. I don't think this will work well at all.

    Tabs for indentation, spaces for alignment. It's fairly easy to set up most IDEs and text editors to handle this for you.
