Thanks for that. I've been debating a last minute upgrade from Win 7 to 10 so I can play Gears and Forza, but I think I'm going to pass.

Having some name lookup problems, which I think were related to an aging router, but it still seems pretty slow SOMETIMES.  Not sure if it is a DNS thing at this point or if it just decided to tank overall performance but running Steam & Battle.net were crap-slow today.

Why am I homeless?  Why do all you motherfuckers need homes is the real question.

Might be worth checking that your router hasn't been compromised. Double-check its DNS server addresses as a first step, and make sure it's as locked down as is feasible. If it's a model with a hardcoded password, it's probably part of a DDOS botnet by now...

I always tend to set my DNS at home manually to point at one or more of the big public DNS servers. (Google, L3, etc)

I did wonder about that and I did a firmware reset of the one with dd-wrt on it (WRT54-GL).  The one with the stock firmware (WRT54-GS), I just outright replaced with a Netgear 108 switch that I obtained from AT&T.  I needed more ports anyway.  I just did a quick set of the GL to router mode and probably set the DNS to 8.8.8.8, which it already was before the reset anyway.  So, maybe it is compromised but maybe not.  I guess the best thing to do would be to reflash it if I plan on keeping it in service.

On my TODO list: find out if there is a service interface for the 108 switch.

Try these instructions and see if 1) Fast Startup is enabled and 2) if disabling it fixes your shutdown issue.

Sorry if you've already tried this, but have you looked at going into device manager/network adapter and unselecting "wake on LAN?"

There might also be a "Wake on LAN" setting in the BIOS/UEFI (or whatever they are calling it these days).

This has been 100% my experience over 16 years of running a dual OS environment. I have to regularly clean and maintain the windows machines, and give new employees a policy review on hire if they use them. With the macs, I just give them the quick 'don't do personal stuff on company time' spiel and let them go nuts. We've been pretty lucky with only a half dozen or so service downtimes due to user fuckery...all but one was a pc (and I'm still astounded an ex-employee managed to screw up her profile on a mac...but it didn't affect the shared login, so *shrug*).

On the other hand, the forced obsolescence cycle of the Mac OS is obscene.

At my university department we encourage the less computer literate to go towards Apple since it seems to be best designed for those with little instinct for computering. Unfortunately, these folks still require more service than 'normal' PC users, because even Apple can't halt an onslaught of stupid. That said, MS has always been a decentralized mad house poised on the brink of utter failure for decades now, carried along by its own financial momentum rather than any real competition.

Your numbers may be biased if you are only giving Macs to stupid people.  Not saying it's a bad approach, but you aren't going to get a apples-to-apples on service metrics like that.

Oh, I gave you the wrong impression. We have smart people using Macs too. All I am saying is that Macs are a safer bet for the technologically disinterested, but I find that increasingly, the problems are not so much with any given OS, but with the web/cloud/online services and how they work or don't.

My Win 10 machine (actually an Alienware Alpha console being used as a PC) has started going into Sleep mode after just a minute or two of inactivity, despite being set to NEVER Sleep in Windows 10 settings. Which is quite annoying as I have to re-enter the password when I come back to the machine from the bathroom, and reconnect the bluetooth speaker.

90%. Of the world, not just the business world, has no idea how to computer. It's not how normal people think at all and they have no intuition or empathy or desire to figure out what the user wants.  Humans don't work well in those systems.  It's no surprise that a platform that removes or hides choices or automates more tasks is better at actual people level use.

Imagine a justice system that was perfectly able to enforce all laws immediately. That's the PC. It sounds great but after the 4th speeding ticket in a day you'd be pissed at the cursing fine when you hit downtown.

People who don't drive at least 5 mph over the speed limit almost certainly cause more accidents and deaths in this country than those who don't.  Also, most likely Nazi's.

Yep, the link I posted earlier came from an internal chat room.  It's even an improvement for my old-style UNIX admin work, not just software development and DevOps horseshit.

To Merusk's point, there is an nice abstraction layer for non-techs, but being BSD under the hood means a tech like me can do a lot more with less hassle.

This is incredibly on-topic but I am pretty sure that speed limits are not actually calibrated for safety.

It's also too fucking slow, especially for long trips. If I can drive 70 mph on shitty roads in an armored suburban with no problems, then it's a no-brainer when I'm driving a normal vehicle on good US roads.

On the other hand, the forced obsolescence cycle of the Mac OS is obscene.
The only people who use Macs where I work are people who don't do real work on them (this is distinct from the actual work they do- which is meeting with people/traveling to meet people). They also require constant janitoring because the people using them are usually pretty computer-stupid and basic stuff never stays working, like Time Machines or enterprise printing. Shares can't seem to stay mounted, Outlook never behaves consistently (I chalk this up to Microsoft giving OSX the usual treatment with its Office port- even if 2016 seems improved), etc. Note that a lot of this sounds small- that's again because Macs don't really seem to be used for anything but sending email and looking at documents.

If you're doing development on a Mac you'd probably be best served just using an actual Linux instead of a bad Linux, like OSX. If you're doing iOS app development, you have my condolences and I hope your pain ends soon.

Linux didn't copy BSD at all (Linus was inspired by MINIX's design, not BSD's). The GNU utilities which are bundled with Linux do use the BSD-style command line switches rather than System V R4's switches (thank god) which does make Linux feel similar to BSD but the kernels are totally different.
