is Pre-configured as an IPv4-ONLY environment, but it can be made IPv6 aware if you DO-IT-YOURSELF.

9OS-DIY.2018 can be installed on a USB-stick with a size of 16GB or larger.

Due to its minimal RAM-drive usage (approximately 1.6 GB) 9OS-DIY.2018 can be used on hardware devices with 4GB of available RAM on the motherboard.

Contrary to 9OS-LITE.2018 and 9OS-PRO.2018, which both use an OFFLINE localized USB – repository for added Privacy and Security, 9OS-DIY.2018 uses an ONLINE repo called “repo.secpursang.nl” (without the “”), which is a socalled “frozen” repository, especially tailored to the needs of 9OS-DIY.2018 users.

V. Why Linux is Cooler than the North pole itself

Following below are some links to increase your Historical knowledge and awareness of Linux, in order to make you appear ultra-cool among your dudes and dudettes, while boasting about your newly built ultra-fast USB-stick spitting words like “Torvald”, “kernel”, “Richard Stallman”, “GNU” and so on:









Linus Torvald quotes on why penguins don’t use Windows:

A computer is like air conditioning – it becomes useless once you open Windows...”

Microsoft isn’t evil, they just make really crappy operating systems.”

Linus Torvald quotes on why he is a truly exceptional engineer:

I am not a visionary. I’m an engineer. I’m happy with the people who are wandering around looking at the stars but I am looking at the ground and I want to fix the pothole before I fall in.”

Don’t ever make the mistake [of thinking] that you can design something better than what you get from ruthless massively parallel trial-and-error with a feedback cycle. That’s giving your intelligence way too much credit.”

Linus Torvald quotes on why he is such a joy to work with:

I like offending people, because I think people who get offended should be offended.

I’m a bastard. I have absolutely no clue why people can ever think otherwise. Yet they do. People think I’m a nice guy, and the fact is that I’m a scheming, conniving bastard who doesn’t care for any hurt feelings or lost hours of work if it just results in what I consider to be a better system. And I’m not just saying that. I’m really not a very nice person. I can say ‘I don’t care’ with a straight face, and really mean it.”

“No-one has ever called me a cool dude. I’m somewhere between geek and normal.”

Why Torvald is Cool and Linux is Cooler than the North pole itself:

9OS-DIY Logo

There are lots of Linux users who don’t care how the kernel works, but only want to use it. That is a tribute to how good Linux is.”

“The Linux philosophy is ‘Laugh in the face of danger’. Oops. Wrong One. ‘Do it yourself’. Yes, that’s it.”
