@paul I first thought you were talking about typing as in typed programming languages :)
Anyone have any experience using tinyemu? It's made by Fabrice Bellard (QEMU, FFMPEG, TCC, etc), so I have high hopes for it.
Oasis Linux Thoughts So Far
Oasis makes Alpine look like Ubuntu. If you don't know what any of that could mean, maybe turn back now?
Lots and trial and error, but some progress has been made. I now can compile a base system that I can chroot into. Fun stuff.
A few thoughts on it:
Author is super nice, and is quick to respond to git issues + emails. So that's a good sign in my book.
The core linux system builds in a matter of minutes. This makes trial and error quite sane.
Core system is mostly a limited shell, but you also get groovy things too like lua5.2, samu (portable ninja clone), and git. Just enough to recompile oasis inside of itself.
Oasis total size for core (with built source directory) is about 1.5 gigs. Most of that is just the source directory. The core rootfs really tiny. /bin is only 70mb. the musl toolchain I'm using accounts for 191mb. /lib is 16mb, and the root .git directory is 72mb.
Oasis makes heavy use of git. Lots of new commands + features I've never used before, like templates (I'm a pretty basic git user though).
ninja is used as a build system. As things start to work, I'm slowly warming up to it.
Things work better if you configure a musl compiler. musl-cross-make doesn't take ages to compile, fortunately.
More docs needed.
AWS Composer. Profanity.
My initial thoughts on AWS composer:
A FUCKING KEYBOARD.
The "brightest minds" let loose to try and figure out how to apply the Latest and Greatest Machine Learning has to offer. Deep pockets, practically unlimited resources. And...
a god damn fucking keyboard interface.
Did nobody bother to contact an actual musician? Fuck.
I'm so done with keyboardists determining the so-called "future of music technology". The world could be so much more than this. (And if you squint your ears, it really is!)
Oasis is a linux distro that is completely statically linked. It's been a really fun project to fumble through. So far, I've managed to get a chroot set up. Looking into how to install additional packages and get sudo/su working:
Alpine Linux on Surface Pro 4
This stopped being fun days ago. Now I'm fueled by spite and obsession.
Been attempting to build the jakeday kernel via modding the linux-vanilla apk build package. Lots of little config-related errors. Every time it fails, I have to start over again. Whole process takes 3 hours, but I have to "check in" every hour for input prompts. Hoping for a better way, but #alpine linux documentation is a bit sparse in these specific areas.

witcher 3, no spoilers
Finally got around to playing this game after it was gifted to me over a two years ago. It's hard for me to put in the initial time to get "into" a game, but now I'm there. It's such a beautiful game, with great writing/acting. Also... a badass soundtrack. Nails the mood. Reminds of Balkan singing music. If anything is to represent cursed magic music, that'd be it.
