@_discord_196459713586528256:t2bot.ioPinoBatch#1742 I learned why File Explorer in Windows has no concept of file type apart from the extension. It's because File Explorer needs a concept of "file type" even for a that has been archived to a tape drive or otherwise on a remote server. Reading magic numbers from each file in a folder to determine their type would force the file system to recall each file from the server if the files happen to be archived.
@_discord_196459713586528256:t2bot.ioPinoBatch#1742 Incidentally, the possibility of a file being archived ended up being a significant part of why the transition from Python 2 to Python 3 was so rough. The file association system in Windows needs to know which application to use with a particular document, such as which interpreter to use with a particular script, before it recalls the document from archive. So for Python 3.0 through 3.2, there was no way to install Python 2 for Windows and Python 3 for Windows to run scripts written in both languages. Python 3.3 fixed this by setting a stub (C:\Windows\py.exe) as the interpreter. 01:24:55

@_discord_90614688374624256:t2bot.ioexelotl#9183 mmmh seems to be a fair bit of matrix spam today :( 01:27:03
@_discord_698754862606712933:t2bot.iosasha#0256 a fair bit of what 03:42:43
@_discord_196459713586528256:t2bot.ioPinoBatch#1742 a fair bit of "spam" (unsolicited bulk messaging) through "Matrix" (an open messaging protocol in which we have a room bridged to this channel for the benefit of people who prefer Matrix over Discord) 03:43:36
@_discord_698754862606712933:t2bot.iosasha#0256 ah i see 03:43:48
@_discord_235036528164864001:t2bot.iopmprog#4139 Well, even back in the day of floppies etc., disk read times weren't lightening, so yeah, I was more shocked by Linux trying to tell me the content of my file regardless of extension when I first started using it. In fact, I find it a bit creepy, because I always like turning previews/thumbnails etc. off. My OS shouldn't be reading my files, just give me access to them 🙂
However, I do understand the need to being able to check the contents... Visual Studio does the same having a "version launcher" to open the correct version of VS for your project etc.
@_discord_189285659675066369:t2bot.ioGericom Yeah 08:17:14
@_discord_235036528164864001:t2bot.iopmprog#4139 My biggest gripe for Windows Explorer, is the really pathetic Shell Overlay Icon limit of 8! (or 10, or whatever stupidly small number it is)
If you look in the registry where you can set the overlay icons, you watched the race of who could enter the most number of spaces to get their icon to the top of the list.
@_discord_189285659675066369:t2bot.ioGericom Overlay? 08:27:36
@_discord_649878805212823552:t2bot.ioGValiente#0899 lack of tabs is way worse for me 😅 08:33:55
@_discord_223788377961398272:t2bot.ioInciaradible I use Everything in lieu of File Explorer. 08:38:09
@_discord_572730968033460254:t2bot.ioAntonioND#7566 You don't need to look for replacements for the File Explorer of windows if you don't use Windows 😅 08:52:35
@_discord_649878805212823552:t2bot.ioGValiente#0899 or a file explorer 🙂 09:08:54

@_discord_235036528164864001:t2bot.iopmprog#4139 Yeah, it's the icons over icons that are generally used by version control/sync software to indicate their status
