NTA, I think he may be referring to installing macOS on non-mac hardware. That's a huge pain in the ass, but also, if you're going that route, a linux OS is obviously much better.
>Dude, the website even tells you how to use them.
Dude, do you seriously use checksums every time? I try to use them, but many times I'm just lazy and trust the server. I sometimes even run plain bash code directly through ```curl website | bash```. It's the easiest way to install some software.
Again, linux only makes sense if you're starting out and have non-mac hardware.
On a fresh mac, this is what I would install:
Sublime text (useful for quick edits)
intellij (for JVM/java projects)
fish (I fucking hate fish, but it's the nicest to write scripts in and save them, directly from command line.)
I like fish for script writing much more, but the manuals suck balls and a lot of things work terribly.
Sounds like bad actors. Were they backdooring the OS or something? Seems super suspicious.
