Literally the most hated desktop environment because why?
It uses around 160mb of memory, barely eats my cpu, and yet people hate it. Is it just the ricefags? I fucking get work done on this DE more then I ever have. I only have 2 extensions, dash to dock and topIcons Pro (which is retarded that they removed them I will agree there)

>Literally the most hated desktop environment because why?
Because it's FUCKING SLOW. It's SO SLOW. It's SO GODDAMNED SLOW. And because that slowness is baked into Gtk3 at this point that means even a feather fucking weight Linux environment is slower to iterate over remote folders for choosing a file to upload in a browser than FUCKING WINDOWS 10. I switched from Windows Vista to Linux (Ubuntu with GNOME 2 at the time) because it was fast and did what I wanted better. I switched from Linux to Win10 on my desktop PC for the same reason.

See this picture? It stopped being fun on the desktop. Thanks, GNIGGERS.
Post benchmarks
lmao I don't mean ricing, I just made the fucking clock smaller and shit.
And want kind of /v/ tier argument is "just buy a better computer" it's a fucking de.
I don't hate GNOME, it's just that KDE is better in my opinion.
Merely enumerating all the files in my 4chan image folders over NFS in a Gtk3 file picker took 15+ seconds. On Windows 10 it takes less than 5 seconds. Same hardware, same network, fresh installs. Gtk3 does this EVERY TIME, with no caching.

Linux is a cornell. It's like an institute, more than an operating system -- and no, uh uh, I know what you're about to say, sweatie, but you're wrong. It IS the operating system.

I am a Linux poweruser, who reigns over lusers like you. Mac and Windows kiddies? Pure cringe. If you want real power....heh....then your goal is to install Gentoo. But if that's out of your reach -- it's like SUPER hard, to be fair -- start with a beginner distro like Linux Mint. Whenever you feel like Linux is feeling lame, just install a new distro, and then you'll realize how EPIC this OS is!
I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're refering to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I've recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX.

Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called Linux, and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project.

There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use. Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine's resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called Linux distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux!

The RX 6800 absolutely smokes the 3070 in some game because of it as I recall, I can't remember which one/s, and the vast majority of 2160/"4K" games are fine on the 3070 as well, it's not a real concern unless you run "ultra" settings, which I doubt people actually do. I just remember the scaling being similar on most games between the tiers of GPUs, then on one of them the 3070 is way behind on 2160p/"4K", it loses like 30+ fps - when you hit that limit, you hit it hard. it's some Hardware Unboxed video but again I can't remember which one. Probably the original 6800 review? I've got to go, check it yourself.

Can we have 2 razzle windows open, one building x86 and one building amd64?
I've had razzle windows open for x86/ia64/amd64 at once and built them seperately fine, wouldn't try building them all at the same time though
Maybe would work fine under XP but with anything else I'd expect our 16-bit bandaid stuff would probably end up breaking
I don't recommend building x86 and amd64 at the same time because bcz creates BuildName.txt

Redpill me on Tiling Window Managers please, /g/
I currently use a highly customized version of Openbox with XFCE's panel, dmenu, and a bunch of keyboard shortcuts for throwing windows around and starting programs.
I want to still be able to start ranger with a shortcut, switch between my common windows predictably with something like win + [0-9], etc.

I also have always considered it useful to peek a window out from behind another one when copying text, referring to information it's containing, or waiting for updates. In these situations I don't need to see the entire window or rely on it blinking in the taskbar to get an update, I just want a peek so I know when something is ready, or when I just need a segment of the window for informational purposes.

Should I try a tiling window manager? Which one?

Ok, I fell head over heels for the dwm meme.
After months of consooming Luke Smith, DT, and Tripcode content I finally decided to swallow the tiling window manager pill and honestly yeah, it's not the same as a traditional windows style desktop environment and it takes some getting used to BUT it is WAY superior in every way.
I can't speak for other window managers as I've only really used dwm but it's lightweight, the window tiling is actually really efficient once you get used to the master stack layout (there are patches for other layouts as well) AND it even works as a regular floating window manager if I want it to.
I will never go back to running something as bloated as XFCE ever again let alone Wangblows or GNOME or whatever.
Another plus is that you can control every single aspect of your desktop. I built that bar at the top, I choose all the keybindings to launch my programs etc.
IDK I'm not really a saleman but I would whole heartedly endorse you just taking the plunge into a window manager.
In fact you should just install arch to a new drive and install dwm from the tty. That's what I did, I dont have to run a login manager or anything I just log in and it auto-starts X and I'm back in my desktop.
Also a final benefit is when normies try to use your computer they won't be able to. Best lock screen for me is to just turn off my top bar and switch workspaces (tags but whatever) to a blank one. Literally nothing will happen if they don't know my keybindings :)
Only Fluxbox the i've liked so far was Arc Dark but that shit is relatively easy to hack themes for if you put the time on it, is a bit like a lost art: https://github.com/xexpanderx/Fluxbox-themes
Also >>78940695 for some pseudo tiling. Something specific i like about Fluxbox is the fact menues aren't a tootche to edit (quite straightfoward compared with Openbox i.e.) and the apps file allows you to launch software on certain workspace, and auto group them in tabs if you open multiple instances of the same app (that's useful for running Zathura, MPV, terminal emulators, feh, and such stuff).
Issues i've found so far:
>Polybar's system tray is fucked, they don't hide on full screen and can freeze randomly, you either use another bar to provide the system tray (like the default panel) for that, or use another bar entirely
>CSD stuff is confusing when you tab it because Fluxbox doesn't draw a title bar on them by default, and is with the title bar and the Mod4 (Super) + [0-9] keybinds you can manage/are aware of the windows you've tabbed. You'll need to set up a keybind to toggle windows decorations, see the man pages.
>more CSD issues: some apps lile Gnome-terminal don't resize correctly with the pseudo tiling keybinds and let a small gap on the bottom, you'll have to keystroke twice.
ask me how i know you’re in high school
I read in "Reddit" (unixporn specifically) about a dude who made a nice looking icewm desktop. Pretty cool, kinda minimal and I was really impressed that icewm could look that good.

I tried to make it like that but after I got it to look more or less like the one from unixporn, I mixed tiling, or at least I wanted a way to make tiles. I think icewm doesn't have that.

I guess every WM/DE will have their caveats and cons. It will depend if you are sure to bear with them and make workarounds or create a new workflow or leave and find something that fits your workflow.

win max IGG backer here, don't waste your money on this right now.

>many QC issues, might have to wait for shipping to china and back
>many games won't work on it because of weird drivers
>win max 2 is starting it's campaign next year with tiger lake, about twice as powerful as this win max for the exact same price.
>aya neo is a thing if you only care about games, and 200$ less than the max, while having better specs and no compatability issues (600$)
if the campaign is starting next year how long does it take until product is released?
probably a bit after the next generation of Intel CPUs come out i guess. first the win 3 campaign is happening, then the win max 2
the win line being the smaller actually "pocketable" gaming pcs, win max the "small laptop" line.
also the win 3 will apparently have the same (or close to?) specs as the win max 2 since its gonna use tiger lake, so either one will btfo the win max 1, and also aya neo campaign for the west is supposed to start early next year too but you can probably get it right now if you pay a little more since they already started selling the founder units in china.

tldr; multiple way better devices with better specs are coming out next year. don't spend almost 900$ usd on the win max 1.
sorry I misread the question. i thought you meant when would the next gen after that come out.
the win max 1 was supposed to take like 2 months after the campaign started to ship but they ran into QC issues, and covid shipping issues, etc. so it ended up being a few more months after what it was supposed to be, but hopefully they've learned how to deal with that stuff and covid isn't as big as an issue for shipping anymore
thanks anon
guess im going to wait then

It isn't, if you consider only total functions, but it is pretty strong so there's not that much chance of you needing a function it can't prove total, and if you really do you can work in a thunk monad, which allows nonterminating functions, or add an exception to the termination checker.

People trying to make fun of languages they aren't forced to use are just niggers wasting their precious time, which ironically could be spent on their favourite languages instead. In particular, the only thing unique about the C++fag and Cnile's entire personality is that they tend to scream inconditionally at Rust, the same way how people tend to discriminate anime fans. They alienate what they do not understand, and some go to great lengths as to spread misinformation and lies to protect their ego, like the faggot I am replying to.
