Did anyone else just unironically learned to stop worrying and love the botnet? I know I did. Google software suite is the best internet experience you can get today and for the forseeable future.
I no longer have to worry about sites not working properly on Firefox.
Juggling Firefox, Keepass, Synthing and all of the other autismware just made my hair gray and distracted me from all of the important things in life. And for what? Chrome's default functionality btfo's all of them.

>inb4 privacy
There no such a thing as "internet", only other someone else's computer. Don't air your dirty laundry online and you'll be fine.
If I'll ever take part in insurrection against the government, ofcourse I won't plan it over gmail. But for anything else, your data is more secure with Google than some basement dwelling neckbeard or a tranny NGO.

just using chrome felt like a redpill, just using what works best. but the real redpill was that firefox is better not because of privacy but because of features. I never found a chromium browser that can rival it, except vivaldi maybe but that feels very bloated.

Startup culture and the tech industry is full of retarded bullshit and kool-aid drinking retard cults. Elizabeth Holmes is just a scapegoat. I don't know if Musk is a total fraud but he does so much bullshit and people are only starting to call him on it now, but these are just the big names. So many "startups" are fraudulent.

those pictures on the left are not good enough to be "thumbnails"
everyone but the gnome devs realized that having thumbnails that small is an accessibility issue
and that picture on the right only works for one item at the time
hopefully the gtk devs can fix this now that all the gnome devs were thrown out via libadwaita

THIS OS runs on 64MB RAM. And its not even crawling at that amount. But this will of course depend on what kind of software are you using in addition to OS itself.

But the question is, how did they do it?
These days, probably just a pulseaudiovolumecontrol takes 30MB at minimum so its hard to get an entire OS to fit in 64MB.

No, it was about average in 2000. A computer that was a year or two old, or budget poorfag boxes had 32, good computers for richfags came with 128.
Think of it as the 8/16/32GB split we have now.

They weren't lazy fucks and had to do their job right.
Nowadays you can get away with O(n3) code and unnecessary calls to poorly coded functions.

See for instance GTA V and how a modder fixed their loading screen. Do your research I'm also a bit lazy myself.

Add a cellar drawer. It's not an innovation because my dad's fridge has one, but it's also the only fucking fridge I've ever found with one.
>inb4 "do you mean freezer?"
No, it's a drawer compartment that's cooled, but not as much as the main part of the fridge. So it's perfect for storing drinks and fruit and like medicine I guess.

Seriously, I can count on one hand the number of woman I know who use a Samsung phone or anything other than an iPhone. When I used to go to University, most women predominantly had some form of Apple laptop.

The only time I see women using something other than Apple is when they have to use Microsoft for work. And unsurprisingly, I don't know a single woman that uses any Linux distro or even know what that is.

I'm not hating on Apple, I just want to know what it is exactly about their electronics and their operating systems that make it so attractive to women.

My boomer parents think Apple is 30% tech and 70% brand. They both use iPhones because it just works unlike Android.

>>85254515
And what do they even think about other brands and how many could they name?
>>
>>85254561
They know about Samsung and Motorola because they also show ads on TV. I think at this point they're just too used to iOS to learn another OS just like how they couldn't find their way around Linux Mint when I installed it on their laptops.

Apple is a marketing company that markets fake status to retards.
Women are retarded and fall into this very very easily. Apple makes them think they're important and better than others, even though billions of people have these devices.
This is the only reason apple sells anything at all.

Whether you're using notepad or Clion, C code is C code, and you'll be able to do that same things no matter what. Plugins and other features in IDE's can help you develop and debug faster. CLion and Eclipse have these features installed and configured out-of-the-box. VSCode is the same, but those tools aren't pre-installed. I recommend sticking to VSCode. You can add plugins as you need them and change them to your liking. VSCode is equally capable, but will be more tailored to what you're comfortable with. The only real advantage to CLion and Eclipse is that you don't have to set it up yourself, but this comes with the expense of A) Not knowing how everything works without a lot of reading and B) Having features pre-installed that you'll never use and waste hardware resources on. Good luck!

Semantic versioning introduced a huge issue where developers pussyfoot around removing parts of an API when they damn well should.
Removing parts of an API produces compiler errors or linter errors and is fine.
Changing the behavior of an API in a way that doesn't produce compiler errors or linter errors is very much not fine and liable to inconspicuously break things.
How do we solve this?

It replaced every other instant messaging system as well as forums of all kinds.
Do you use it? Is there even a way to use it without having to install the spyware client?
