cartridge computing fucking rules</p>yeah i said it</p>
not sure why i said it but i did
i decided upon a 'testbed' cartridge instead of 'utilities' because lol what utilities are tiny, but i actually do have a use for a testbed OS cartridge to test newer versions of ubuntu against studio software, particularly new LTS releases, and also 64 bit, because yeah I'm on 32-bit still because of concerns about plugins. but with a separate cartridge (hard drive and booting system) then i can try them without fear.
THIS ACTUALLY SOLVES A PROBLEM
and i hate that
it's so stupid
(if you're just catching up, i'm using an external eSata harness to have a cartridge-slot-like multi-boot system with different SSD hard drives, which, I realised, are basically cartridges like from the old Sega Genesis and before. so i'm running with it because that's the kind of shit i do.)
(the extra storage carts are for power-users with multi-cartridge-slot systems OBVIOUSLY)
