These are hardware kill switches.
Not a webcam cover. Not software disabled Wi-Fi. Kill switch.
Laptops should have these.

At least I no longer feel weird/scared for having chosen btrfs+raid5 for my "NAS" storage few years ago.

Today I've spent about 7 hours of my life trying to debug an iptables/firewall/VPN issue.
Whatever I tried, it just didn't work.
...and then after hours of painful debugging, wiresharking and TCP dumping I realized I'm on a system with several GB/s of throughput and someone was clever enough to skip conn-tracking on the raw packet level for performance reasons.
Lesson of the day: There is always one more lesson to learn. 😆
This is a proper way to end a Linux distro, IMO. They aren't leaving their users high and dry, and they provide a clear transition. Plus they are up front about why they are doing it.
Sucks though. As Antergos is probably the only Linux distro that had a ZFS option in the installer itself. (at least Ubuntu will carry on that legacy soon)
TIL: #bash provides pseudo devices for TCP and UDP connections:
echo "hello" > /dev/udp/127.0.0.1/1337
echo -e "GET / HTTP/1.0\n" >&5
I'm baffled how I've never discovered that until today.
