DO NOT DO THIS! DO NOT RUN THIS COMMAND UNLESS YOU KNOW THE OUTCOME! THIS COULD DAMAGE YOUR SYSTEM BEYOND REPAIR
I was just testing some distros in distrotest.net and I noticed ferenos I tested it for a while and decided to destroy the system
I run "sudo rm -rf --no-preserve-root"
And this happened LOL
These are more funny comments check that yourself
Do you guys know any distro doing this?
rm command is "remove." The
-rf means "Recursive Files." In other words:
It will wipe your drive.
This command will work on any distro and will work on MacOS.
It can also do a lot of damage on Windows systems, too.
I know that but the output of the command should be destruction
But the feren OS keeps giving funny output
I have tested in Zorin os but didn't give me any funny comments instead of executing the command
Quite a lot of distros know to protect against running this command nowadays, don't they? Though probably not as funny as Feren's there -- and not that I feel like testing it with my production machine here, heh.
Removing shared mime info will do the same . Don't try it ! Beware of fork-bomb commands also.
The r is recursive, the f is force, as in don't ask again.
Update kernel to newest also need to be a Warning.
Thanks for the correction. I really should have known that... Flyin' by the seat o' my pants, there...
Okay, just tried it in Zorin. It doesn't make jokes, it just hosed my system.*
*In a throwaway VM, that is... I'm not that crazy... O_o
There were some cowboys back on the old forum when I was the sole moderator at the time as other chief moderator was absent due to illness - they claimed he was dead and issued this command to "speed up your computer"! Numpties!
Zorin developers should add something like that to protect the system from destruction
In my opinion, it is a must addition
