You're proving my point: you need to use 3rd party programs, aka bloat, to make the Windows experience remotely acceptable. As for me, I don't really care since I'm using Krunner which is the default program launcher on KDE Nd has more features than what Windows offer by default.

I like a slimmer system with more control and not having to worry about my postponed updates forcefully rebooting after my 5 weeks have passed. As a less important benefit I like the idea of open source, just sounds nice.

I have been a Mac OS X user since the public beta and prior to that I only used Slackware Linux. I have started up 2 Linux User Groups and help start 3 Hacker/Maker Spaces. I have worked in IT since 1999 and built my first PC as a child in 1987.

Mac OS X/XI is the best Unix implementation. Linux, especially now in 2020, is pretty great too (provided you use a ThinkPad/or have full hardware support).

My daily driver is an 2018 iPad Pro 12.9” and SSH/VNC into a Raspberry Pi 4 Model B w/ 8GB RAM for Python dev and when I need a shell.

I also use a Lenovo IdeaPad Duet Chromebook.

Unix-like operating systems wether they be Linux, Mac OS X, iPadOS, iOS, Android or Chrome have WON. Windows is shit, so much so that Microsoft will be moving Windows to Linux. He’ll, Azure their number 1 money maker is ALREADY Linux.

Windows bros: it’s over. DOS/NT tech is dead, sorry about your useless and worthless MCSEs.

I mean that's why I went for the 10700k because it was pretty much identical in performance, but now for my budget I was able to get a top of the line ROG Strix B550-F with all the bells and whistles instead of a shitty cheap Z490 board I picked to save money. It'll also use a lot less TDP which is nice because I live in a hot climate and don't want that high of wattage.

Terminal is cope for your bad OS.

macOS doesn’t need command line because it has decades of polishing allowing you to have a gui environment with the features you need. System Preferences is the best settings app of any OS that exists. Finder is better than any shitty file manager on linux, linux file managers are so bad everyone just ends up using terminal to do commands Finder has already built in. macOS has perfected its windowmanager, providing multitasking that no linux de has, and without using autistic key mappings.

Accept that linux gui is shit and you are forced to use the terminal, and if macOS was running the linux kernel you’d probably stop using terminal.

What do you use for energy while coding?

>>78957124
I begin with meditation. Once you're "there", feel for the field of energy that extends from your skin a few inches out. Harden this first layer with your mind, condense it, and let it brighten until you have it down to a few centimeters and blindingly bright white all over your body. Assign this shield the properties you need, With all confidence in yourself that you can muster, affirm that your shield is unbreakable, that it is self-maintaining, and that any negative energy or influence avoids it like real programmers do with Rust. Hold this shield image in place as long as you feel is necessary.
Once every morning, meditate and check on your shield. If needed, go through these steps again to reinforce it.

Yeah, plenty, and none have whined anywhere near as much as that did. The closest would have been the R9 Fury Nitro I had, but even that wasn't as bad. The 2080 Super it was replacing is silent and so is the 5700 XT my brother has, so the idea that it's simply unavoidable is pure fiction. Enjoy slurping that corporate cock and accepting manufacturing defects as "normal" though.
