Windows: mklink

mklink is a rather useful command for shuffling large directories around without requiring application support (e.g., large games from HDD to SSD or vice versa).

Microsoft docs example (source):

mklink /d \MyDocs \Users\User1\Documents

There’s a better explanation here.


Why Windows Is Better Than PulseAudio

Wait, what? You heard me. On Windows you can set sample rates per sound card. It looks like this.

Setting one soundcard to 24 bit, 96 kHz in Windows. Windows refers to this as “Studio Quality.”

In PulseAudio you’re limited to a primary and secondary sample rate. I’ve actually been using pasuspender more, also because its AC3 passthrough never seemed to work.
