I'm locked out of my laptop for ten minutes because I typed my own password wrong four times in a row which means I can't run
sudo systemctl restart elasticsearch
I wonder if I'm less likely to have my laptop stolen because it looks like I run linux
Personally if I were a laptop thief for resale reasons, I'd pick a laptop that isn't covered in stickers for easier resale, and if I were one for personal data stealing reasons, I'd pick a laptop that doesn't look like it's owned by an Linux Person Who Knows Their Shit (I do not)
@wilbowma hmm. I guess in the unlikely event my entire house catches fire I lose both my laptop and my server backups
