There are multiple companies that rent out access to a Mac in the cloud. I used one of them for a few months when I had to port an Android app to iOS, which needs a Mac to compile. If you only need your Mac for a few hours per year, this is probably the cheapest option. Resetting "your" mac is just a question of a few minutes to get a new, freshly ...

Is it possible (and legal) to buy a macOS license to have it as a VM on my Linux machine? No - at least not according to Apple's software license agreement for MacOS. The license agreement for MacOS Big Sur (others are similar) explicitly says (emphasis mine): you are granted a limited, non-transferable, non-exclusive license: [...] (iii) to install, use ...

As others have said, the only way to legally virtualize Mac OS X (according toApple's EULA) is on Apple hardware. So the purchase you need to make isn't a software purchase, it's a hardware purchase: you need to buy a Mac. With Intel (x86) Apple hardware, there's three ways you can do this: 1. Use VMWare ESXi as the host OS ESXi is VMware's professional ...

I'm currently using Ubuntu, but there are still some apps I wanted to use on macOS. I found macOS-Simple-KVM. However, there will be a bit of tweaking you'll need to do before being able to use the App Store on it, and it's limited to macOS Catalina. For Windows, I just use VirtualBox and my purchased license of Windows 10. Edit: My apologies. I just ...

You can legitimately download and run VM specifically for testing purposes (which is exactly what you are doing) directly from Microsoft at a price of $0.00. You just need to know where to go. It's currently on Microsoft Edge Developer site, but it periodically moves location for one reason or another. There are several OS & browser combinations ...

"Linux System Administration" is quite a large subject. Administering a Red Hat based distribution (like Fedora, CentOS, Red Hat Enterprise Linux) is similar, but a little different to a Debian based system (like Debian, Ubuntu, Raspbian) and also different from other bases, like Arch, Alpine, Android or distributions of Linux packages installed on ...

The simplest solution is probably to use pdftotext from poppler-utils to extract the text, and then use an existing command line spell-checker (spell, ispell, aspell, etc...) to check it. Note that if you are generating the PDF, you are probably better off checking the source of that generation, as words are liable to be bro- ken by being formatted in a PDF.

You could for example use Python 3: import hashlib file_name='abc.txt' with open(file_name) as file_to_check: # read 8192 bytes of the file data = file_to_check.read(8192) # pipe contents of the file through md5_returned = hashlib.md5(data).hexdigest()

PS4 has AMD GCN 2.0 architecture. ( https://www.techpowerup.com/gpu-specs/playstation-4-gpu.c2085 ) But not exactly. They bypass L1 / L2 cache to have direct memory access. AMD ROC'm driver: https://github.com/RadeonOpenCompute/ROCm https://rocmdocs.amd.com/en/latest/Deep_learning/Deep-learning.html So in theory it is likely to be possible. It is can do 1....
