and has more freedom than windows but its also very secure

2019-11-14 20:20:17 UTC

>comes with Amazon shit pre-installed

2019-11-14 20:20:20 UTC

Lol okay

2019-11-14 20:20:30 UTC

botnet from the get-go

2019-11-14 20:21:03 UTC

if I ever had to install linux it would be Manjaro

2019-11-14 20:22:36 UTC

The problem isn't social media. It's doing literally anything else.

2019-11-14 20:22:56 UTC

like normies do anything else

2019-11-14 20:23:26 UTC

Right. Everyone who's pro Linux had autism blinders on

All of the above come with free links to broken repositories, as an added bonus

2019-11-14 20:33:05 UTC

just don't be an autist and use software like normie would use it <:pepesmug:589101277879992339>

2019-11-14 20:33:54 UTC

@Matthew after that .. how long it has been since you actualy used linux last time :P

2019-11-14 20:34:14 UTC

but given certain weird problems arise at times

2019-11-14 20:34:28 UTC

similar to "just restart your pc"

2019-11-14 20:34:38 UTC


2019-11-14 20:35:28 UTC

truth to be told i have had few of those "well you are only one and this dude who never answered how he fixed it"

2019-11-14 20:35:36 UTC

@Tervy how many times does one have to eat shit to decide they don't like the taste?

2019-11-14 20:36:00 UTC

technicaly every 5 years iirc as your tastebuds change

2019-11-14 20:36:17 UTC

but indeed

2019-11-14 20:36:24 UTC

not everyones cup of tea

2019-11-14 20:36:36 UTC

and linux is not free.. the cost is the time it takes to learn it

2019-11-14 20:36:47 UTC

so yeah

2019-11-14 20:37:46 UTC

specialy these days linux is ever closer to windows bad things thanks to systemD fuckery

2019-11-14 20:37:46 UTC

>it's not that it's broken, it's that you haven't "taken the time to learn it"

2019-11-14 20:37:50 UTC


2019-11-14 20:37:59 UTC

@Matthew indeed thats what many people say :/

2019-11-14 20:38:11 UTC

and then refuse to try to understand the newbie in need nor teach him/her

2019-11-14 20:38:15 UTC

This is like being smug about daily driving a car with 2 flat tires

2019-11-14 20:38:18 UTC

good old internet

2019-11-14 20:38:29 UTC

all these flavors and distributions are doing more damage than good

2019-11-14 20:38:52 UTC

if there was only one and everyone was working on that it would be a lot easier

2019-11-14 20:38:58 UTC

>heh, he needs "traction" and "stability" in his car. Just gut gud noob

2019-11-14 20:39:41 UTC

boy, do I have a pic for you guys

2019-11-14 20:39:58 UTC

keep your furry porn to yourself please

2019-11-14 20:40:01 UTC


2019-11-14 20:40:30 UTC

just googled this quick

2019-11-14 20:40:39 UTC

>not using all the available operating systems daily

2019-11-14 20:41:17 UTC

needs this


2019-11-14 20:41:47 UTC

but yeah all of them have their pros and cons

2019-11-14 20:41:48 UTC

>consumer Linux
>fighter jet

2019-11-14 20:41:51 UTC

Linux is fake because nothing works

2019-11-14 20:41:52 UTC


2019-11-14 20:42:05 UTC

it doesn't have that quality control needed for fighter jet

2019-11-14 20:42:21 UTC

Literally all of Linux devs are >doing it for free

2019-11-14 20:42:22 UTC

@Sad have you ever used bsd

2019-11-14 20:42:22 UTC

in fact it doesn't have quality control at all

2019-11-14 20:42:29 UTC

linux is old cars slavs drive daily

2019-11-14 20:42:32 UTC

No, and neither has anybody else @Tervy

2019-11-14 20:42:45 UTC

i doubt that @Matthew

2019-11-14 20:42:53 UTC

tbf those old cars are reliable af

2019-11-14 20:43:10 UTC

not comfortable or even running smoothly

2019-11-14 20:43:25 UTC

but won't leave you freezing in the middle of Siberia

2019-11-14 20:43:39 UTC

>Linux defense squad came out in droves when I went to go make dinner reservations

2019-11-14 20:44:12 UTC

not really defense tbh i hate large parts and problems of linux world too

2019-11-14 20:44:21 UTC

there is just no perfect OS out there sadly

2019-11-14 20:44:21 UTC

I am not defending it just saying there is a couple of advantages

2019-11-14 20:44:34 UTC


2019-11-14 20:44:49 UTC

The advantage is having tons of free time because you won't have the capability to Do anything productive

2019-11-14 20:44:58 UTC

@foxhunt and when it breaks they know how to fix them

2019-11-14 20:45:04 UTC

i would jump to any ship if they fixed their shit

2019-11-14 20:45:17 UTC

just a little bit of duct tape and wire

2019-11-14 20:46:29 UTC

it will be a year of a linux soon

2019-11-14 20:46:42 UTC

- Guys since 1999s

2019-11-14 20:47:13 UTC

- Transwomen since 2010s

2019-11-14 20:47:40 UTC

but to derail this: Why on earth silicone coated vermiculite fiberglass must be so fucking costly

2019-11-14 20:47:45 UTC

it already is the year of the linux ||server ||

2019-11-14 20:48:59 UTC

not quite

2019-11-14 20:49:06 UTC

most servers run windows server

2019-11-14 20:49:10 UTC

Linux. In the back end peosumer space or highly specialized space is fine

2019-11-14 20:49:23 UTC

true companies run some custom oracle solution

2019-11-14 20:49:24 UTC

But I literally run windows sever on my home server

2019-11-14 20:49:28 UTC

And it's never had issues

2019-11-14 20:49:33 UTC

Linux is cool and good

2019-11-14 20:49:37 UTC

but it's not for everyone

2019-11-14 20:49:49 UTC

I don't understand why people want to shill it hard or have stances on it at all

2019-11-14 20:49:56 UTC


2019-11-14 20:49:58 UTC


2019-11-14 20:50:02 UTC

the discussion is far broader

2019-11-14 20:50:21 UTC

It's because a higher adoption of Linux will drive more developers for it

2019-11-14 20:50:31 UTC

most real scientific environments use Centos

2019-11-14 20:50:33 UTC

They only have gains to make if they shill Linux.

2019-11-14 20:50:51 UTC

Shilling linux isn't good as it's only created fuckfests like snap and flatpak

2019-11-14 20:50:52 UTC

Also if fucking valve couldn't make Linux work. No one can.

2019-11-14 20:51:00 UTC

Valve *is* making linux work

2019-11-14 20:51:08 UTC

They just went about it the wrong way the first time

2019-11-14 20:51:21 UTC

Proton is coming along nicely, still inferior to WINE but hey

2019-11-14 20:51:27 UTC

Wine's had time to age

2019-11-14 20:51:32 UTC

Proton's less than 2 years old

2019-11-14 20:51:35 UTC

Which hurt the image of it and is only going to make adaptation for normies harder

2019-11-14 20:51:47 UTC

@Rusty people's reasons for preferring Linux are very often political rather than practical

2019-11-14 20:51:55 UTC


2019-11-14 20:52:08 UTC

I don't plan on opening that blocked message

2019-11-14 20:52:14 UTC

What's it say

2019-11-14 20:52:31 UTC

Squeeze them hard enough and they'll always, always scream MUH PRIVACY, MUH GOVERNMENT BACKDOOR

2019-11-14 20:52:38 UTC

>blocking matt. Literally why.

2019-11-14 20:52:55 UTC

I try browsing nsfw-lewds or this channel sometimes

2019-11-14 20:53:03 UTC

and every post he makes is some incredibly forced joke

2019-11-14 20:53:09 UTC

or just nothing of value

2019-11-14 20:53:17 UTC

And matt is right. To truly have good opsec requires a level of autism far beyond what even the most autistic person is doing

2019-11-14 20:53:17 UTC


2019-11-14 20:53:34 UTC

There's always a tradeoff between privacy and convenience

2019-11-14 20:53:51 UTC

Not anymore with the level of privacy being invaded

2019-11-14 20:54:01 UTC


2019-11-14 20:54:09 UTC

Google can figure out about who you probably are insanely fast.

2019-11-14 20:54:14 UTC

Lemme find that article

2019-11-14 20:54:30 UTC


2019-11-14 20:54:35 UTC


2019-11-14 20:54:49 UTC

I am more worried with ruskies and chink keyloggers than I am with big corporations

2019-11-14 20:54:55 UTC

Even if you somehow managed to avoid Google, Facebook and Microsoft your entire life

2019-11-14 20:55:01 UTC

i mean they could if they wanted but kind of proof that they dont want/cant in en masse is how inaccurate their ads are if you are not on their network

2019-11-14 20:55:03 UTC

There's people around you who haven't

2019-11-14 20:55:26 UTC

To have true anonymity you have to literally not know anyone who doesn't live like you do

2019-11-14 20:55:28 UTC

Man. I can't find that fuckin article

2019-11-14 20:55:35 UTC

No compromised hardware

2019-11-14 20:55:37 UTC

no phones

2019-11-14 20:55:40 UTC

no cars (at least not new ones)

2019-11-14 20:55:49 UTC

or actually

2019-11-14 20:56:08 UTC

no cars at all, since OBD is technically something that can be manipulated to track you along with the radio

2019-11-14 20:56:18 UTC

if google already has your info, you won't mind sharing that with me? πŸ™‚

2019-11-14 20:56:49 UTC

It's a matter of acknowledging that you've already fucked up your privacy one way, but not letting them get the rest of you

2019-11-14 20:57:00 UTC

or giving them more than what they absolutely need

2019-11-14 20:57:12 UTC

Is giving crash logs to a developer datamining?

2019-11-14 20:57:20 UTC


2019-11-14 20:57:49 UTC

Anyway, if you don't block ads and don't have some https extension

2019-11-14 20:57:51 UTC

you're not trying

2019-11-14 20:58:14 UTC

if you have noscript and ublock matrix installed

2019-11-14 20:58:17 UTC

you're overdoing it

2019-11-14 20:59:54 UTC

Actively reducing your productive output for the sake of intangible safety gains

2019-11-14 20:59:57 UTC

is just insane to me

2019-11-14 21:00:30 UTC

implying any of us were ever productive on a computer

2019-11-14 21:00:48 UTC

its just like firewall once you set it its there and works to that case like it should

2019-11-14 21:01:05 UTC

but not everyone bothers with their firewall too so~

2019-11-14 21:01:25 UTC

different strokes for different folks

2019-11-14 21:03:19 UTC

isn't noscript a whitelist deal where you have to constantly update it to not break the site you're on

2019-11-14 21:04:02 UTC


2019-11-14 21:04:11 UTC

its just like umatrix once you set your site to work it keeps working (given site owner is not total retard and changes whole thing once a month)

2019-11-14 21:04:16 UTC

Also more convenient on cancerous sites where you'd have to zap 8 elements to use it

2019-11-14 21:04:35 UTC

Zap with ublock, of course

2019-11-14 21:05:19 UTC
2019-11-14 21:06:14 UTC

I just use nano adblocker (ublock origin fork)

2019-11-14 21:06:22 UTC

seems to get most of the shit out of the way

2019-11-14 21:10:09 UTC
2019-11-14 21:10:14 UTC

Just ZOOM my shit up

2019-11-14 21:10:31 UTC

>gameplay reveal
>there is no gameplay shown.

2019-11-14 21:19:45 UTC


2019-11-14 21:21:27 UTC

Also it looks like a fucking fortnite or something. This will salt the internet.

2019-11-14 22:17:37 UTC

100 gecs is a true guilty pleasure

2019-11-14 22:24:06 UTC


2019-11-14 22:26:30 UTC

@Sad didn't they already make that game like 10 years ago?

2019-11-14 22:27:55 UTC

It was just revealed ""gameplay"" trailer

2019-11-14 22:28:13 UTC

So this is what people been waiting for 15 years

2019-11-14 23:08:40 UTC


2019-11-14 23:13:12 UTC


2019-11-14 23:14:12 UTC

sorry wrong chat

2019-11-14 23:14:31 UTC

Shut up pawp, stop being needy

2019-11-14 23:14:35 UTC

Wow, gay mod can't even follow his own rules

2019-11-14 23:14:51 UTC

Also I did the dumb thing and replaced my screen instead of buying a new phone

2019-11-14 23:15:02 UTC


2019-11-14 23:15:04 UTC

How bad

2019-11-14 23:15:15 UTC

Now any spelling mistakes are purely on me.

2019-11-14 23:15:25 UTC

Meh, 105 after taxes

2019-11-14 23:19:11 UTC

Could have gotten an entirely "new" phone refurbished for that price

2019-11-14 23:19:44 UTC

Always had horrid luck with refurbs

2019-11-14 23:19:48 UTC

mainly the battery is shit

2019-11-14 23:20:14 UTC

Been loving mine.

2019-11-14 23:21:43 UTC

For all of two months

2019-11-14 23:21:57 UTC

literally go suckstart the grease traps

2019-11-14 23:24:41 UTC


2019-11-14 23:27:27 UTC

They warranty the battery to have at least 80% of the capacity for a year, so...?

2019-11-14 23:28:58 UTC

Just suggesting an alternative that worked for me, John. Don't have to be a twat about it.

2019-11-14 23:29:06 UTC


2019-11-14 23:29:28 UTC

What seller did you use?

2019-11-14 23:29:45 UTC


2019-11-14 23:35:37 UTC

The only thing they don't warranty is that it'll be waterproof, since they had to open it up to refurbish it

2019-11-14 23:35:43 UTC


2019-11-14 23:35:49 UTC

Fuck employers

2019-11-14 23:36:10 UTC

fuck yanwen

2019-11-14 23:36:41 UTC

"To verify your identity with us we require:
- Background check
- Three forms of ID
- One form of ID witnessed by a Justice of The Peace (????????)
- Signed manual consent form"

2019-11-14 23:36:58 UTC

Oi, do you have a loisence for loisence

2019-11-14 23:37:10 UTC

sounds like either scam or government position

2019-11-14 23:37:41 UTC

government position

2019-11-14 23:37:47 UTC

I mean

2019-11-14 23:37:52 UTC

government contractor

2019-11-14 23:38:04 UTC


2019-11-14 23:38:04 UTC

I had to do beaucoup background checks to get my job

2019-11-14 23:38:17 UTC

And I'm just a vending monkey

2019-11-14 23:39:51 UTC

Fun fact, I can bypass the TSA because of my government employee ID

2019-11-14 23:39:53 UTC


2019-11-14 23:40:09 UTC

Sweet, for the identity verification I can actually fucking give just my passport

2019-11-14 23:40:12 UTC

that's it

2019-11-14 23:40:15 UTC

thank u gummint

2019-11-14 23:40:36 UTC

I still have to go down to the police station to file this fucking thing though

2019-11-14 23:40:40 UTC

EH, as long as it's as drop safe

2019-11-14 23:40:47 UTC

I need to replace screens all the time

2019-11-14 23:41:00 UTC

So it's not like I take showers with my phone

2019-11-14 23:42:59 UTC

Same. Get a galaxy active, I think they're only like 150 on there. Rugged little phones.

2019-11-14 23:43:08 UTC

is the verification last step or first step of job application

2019-11-14 23:43:13 UTC

last step

2019-11-14 23:43:19 UTC

ive already signed the employment contract, etc

2019-11-14 23:43:29 UTC


2019-11-14 23:43:40 UTC

nice go get that taxpayer money

2019-11-14 23:43:51 UTC

straight outta hs, 43k a year and they pay for a vocational college it degree

2019-11-14 23:43:58 UTC


2019-11-14 23:44:05 UTC

what position

2019-11-14 23:44:14 UTC

just an apprentice it consultant

2019-11-14 23:44:27 UTC

since haha consulting they toss me confidentiality shit out the wazoo

2019-11-14 23:44:56 UTC


2019-11-14 23:45:00 UTC


2019-11-14 23:45:43 UTC

That's really good if essentially it's a paid internship

2019-11-14 23:45:59 UTC

Get that money, you retard

2019-11-14 23:46:12 UTC

Droid is a good boi

2019-11-14 23:46:23 UTC

Background checks are annoying tho

2019-11-14 23:47:00 UTC

I have to drive half an hour to get these fucking documents witnessed so my working rights can be confirmed

2019-11-14 23:53:37 UTC

@Droidbot is it true that a Bush fire means getting from one major city to the other means circumnavigating the entire country?

2019-11-14 23:55:10 UTC

Aye it's Droid-chan

2019-11-14 23:56:05 UTC


2019-11-14 23:56:06 UTC

can’t Australia just kill their wild animals like all civilized counties did millions years ago <:pepesmug:589101277879992339>

2019-11-14 23:56:20 UTC

how can you lose yo birds

2019-11-14 23:57:30 UTC

To be fair, they're big birds

2019-11-14 23:58:03 UTC

Man. I wish dodos were still alive.

2019-11-14 23:58:14 UTC

RIP @Dodo

2019-11-14 23:58:28 UTC

youre a dodo @Pawp

2019-11-14 23:59:06 UTC


2019-11-15 00:01:21 UTC

@Matthew for people in WA, yes

2019-11-15 00:01:28 UTC

but WA is not a major city

2019-11-15 00:01:39 UTC

Miserable cunts

2019-11-15 00:01:48 UTC

Use your obscene taxes to build some roads

2019-11-15 00:01:59 UTC

We built a big fucking highway

2019-11-15 00:03:58 UTC

build another

2019-11-15 00:04:15 UTC

can’t you just drive though middle of Australia

2019-11-15 00:04:26 UTC

that map was weird

2019-11-15 00:04:35 UTC

Through all that nothing? Why would you want to

2019-11-15 00:04:48 UTC

Yes I want to drive through a desert
