Why would you want it? When you look at an image, you usually want to see that image, not the image plus whatever is behind your monitor.
Would be nice to use a small one for a car HUD.

projecting the display works better in that use case

So I have an idea for website, I have the whole scheme ready - functions, what should it have etc.

The problem is I'm a programming brainlet, I only know HTML/CSS and some Java (not JavaScript)

I can do all wordpress stuff but there are functions for which there simply are no plugins

How should I hire someone or find a partner to do it with me unironically I don't know any developers that I can contact, also wanna avoid overpaying someone who might not get the work done.
tell me your idea OP I can help

Gimp will never be a good program because it's developed by programmers who have never worked professionally as an artist, and refuse to listen to artists' input.

GIMP can be used to produce quality photomanipulations. For example I made pic related in GIMP. I've even made digital paintings from scratch in GIMP. However, it's not a comfy or efficient program by any means and can be a pain in the ass to work with.
Yeah, I'm an actual artist and I like GIMP. We're tied.

>You can trust X because they're open source. Just verify their code!
>If something malicious gets in, people will see it!
Do people actually audit these open source projects and how often or is it just a meme?
if the project has bug bounty program than most certainly yes
those involved in it yeah, sometimes a random lurker will skim over it for whatever reason, depends on how accessible it is for read only
still way better than 'heh trust me' - where if it aint broken [meaning in your face] don't fix it, even if you know it's there and needs fixing, and if something is found it's fixed fast
>those involved in it
I feel like that's a problem if we don't have the random lurkers going through them.

I agree that open source is better than than the alternative, but if no one is taking the time to go through it, it might as well just be "heh trust me", right? My concern is that everyone assumes someone else is doing the auditing for them and then no one actually does it.
i guess distro packagers have to take a look at it once in a while
You can trust open source more than you can closed source by default, but that doesn't mean you therefore can trust open source completely.

It's just objectively better than closed source. That's all.

>monopoly monies
we normally call US Dollar as "monopoly monies"...
Nvidia, I'd recommend to have 2 distros in your hard drive with partitions. Because the only way you can have good performance is if you use only the Nvidia card, you blacklist nouveau and install the Nvidia driver from the Nvidia page. That's if you need to run graphics. On the other hand if you're just gonna do cuda/opencl processing, you can run everything on the CPU integrated graphics and still run tasks with cuda/opencl when you need to.
The first option drains battery a lot, but is not on/off switch because you need to unload the driver from the kernel if I remember correctly???
But I don't know, I think I could make a solution in a single distro; Install the driver normally blacklisting nouveau, when you don't need it, stop the graphical session on tty and turn off the GPU, I don't know what's the command to do that actually, but there has to be one to unload it I guess, then you restart the graphical session and it should load with the integrated graphics card. I guess there may even be a gnome extension to do this from the system tray without restarting the whole graphical session.
On systemd based systems is service graphical stop/start or something like that from tty. Gnome reloads running "r" from the alt+f2 command prompt, so maybe you could use that after selecting a different graphic card.
That's pretty outdated info, it works just like on Windows now on Linux too. You can switch it per-application and have it off the rest of the time.
All in all I'd say go with a Ryzen ThinkPad anyways if you can afford it.
wtf? the Nvidia driver from the Nvidia page works like Optimus? tell me more faggot, I don't believe you

Apparently not.

Decade long Firefox user here. Got too bloated and slow, so switched to Chrome. Even worse. Sad! Opera much better.
I can't understand why anyone would choose Chrome over Firefox.
Sure there are other niche browsers we can argue endlessly about, but Firefox is objectively better, faster and less bloated than Chrome.
Mozilla now faces a challenging decision between two options
1) Fix the problems with Firefox
2) Rewrite more of Firefox in Rust
Which one will they pick? Only time will tell!

i liked the ncix linus tbqh
This, was starting everyone were numb in the skull. The answer is simple, especially if you know what it takes to put a whole project together and edit it all.
he does unboxing vids and does a lot of them. that's a lot of boxes and they dont keep it so legit all you do if you work for him is unload shit from a truck, wait, and put it back in the box.

hes a psychopath, too. dont believe me? well too bad, i dont believe in air but still breathe. sometimes you can be wrong, got it? Linus is one bad day away from putting on a huey lewis and the news album with a bunch of newspapers spread across the studio floor.
