Are curved monitors better for general use or it's just a gaymer meme?

I have one at work.
It’s fine. I dunno, wouldn’t say it’s better or worse than flat. Wasn’t a factor when I was selecting it either, most wide monitors are curved nowadats.

Has anyone used it?
Yes it's better than all the a- korean monitors I've owned
kind of shit how I no longer need a second monitor even though I've always had em, especially at the price the arms always are
Yeah, in your mouth
I was going to make a thread but someone already did with the same image.

Do straight lines appear bent on curved monitors? I need an ultrawide for side by side document/image comparisons for work

Okay FreeBSD desktop users, red pill me on your experiences. I’m an Arch user who’s considering making the switch mostly because of zfs.
How long does it take to get a usable desktop up-and-running? I have a compatible laptop so I’m not too worried about hardware support.
How is printer support?
How is performance?

>mostly because of ZFS
ZFS is better under arch at the moment bro. Just use the arch-zfs repo and the dkms packages. 0.8 even has encryption. If you wanted any of the other benefits FreeBSD is a "easier" operating system with some benefits like devs who actually run their maintained software in production and therefore know whats wrong but a part from that install the archzfs repo.
Does soulseek work on freebsd
Why wouldn't it?

No u
you need to read the wiki line by line to install arch. reading is too much for niggers.

i don't use arch btw

0) Install a GNU/Linux distribution of your choice in a Virtual Machine.
1) Use a live image and to boot directly into the GNU/Linux distribution without installing anything.
2) Do not dual boot the GNU/Linux distribution of your choice along with Windows or macOS.
3) Go balls deep and replace everything with GNU/Linux.

Resources: Please spend at least a minute to check a web search engine with your question.

Linux can be installed to 16gb flash drives without much worry, arch linux in particular can install to 8gb if you don't want a full fat experience. It's not easy to fuck up but it's not easy to implement under Arch, so the steps involved (wiping disks) can be done to your win install by mistake very easily. Install a modern Debian distro via it's installer script if this is your first Linux distro, take a look at how it does certain things like system management with systemd then try your hand at Arch. It's install is tedious but not hard, but after that you are left in the wide ocean of Linux without a gui and with a lot that can go wrong due to lack of knowledge.
You'll have to read the Arch install guide/wiki and type out a bunch of tedious commands. Instead, you can install Manjaro with the desktop of your choice. Or choose a stable distro based on Ubuntu LTS or Debian stable.

>Is it easy fuck up
sure just pick the wrong partition to install on
Debian has become the defacto target framework for most software development, it's package list is extreme and that's not including the hackery you can perform to get it's descendants software to run in house. And unlike it's descendants who's projects basically *have* to use a single DE for common development reasons its installer lets you pick some common ones but ultimately its built to run any way you want. It's community is onions as all hell so if you want you may wish to visit Ubuntu forums for support but for the most part it's the most foolproof linux I have used. Hence still using it.

I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring 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.

gab is the largest mastadon instance, according to their directory.

I just joined a few instances yesterday and holy shit. I always thought people on 4chan heavily exaggerated the amount of trannies and furries online but these mainstream mastadon instances are magnets for them. It's like you have to choose. Do you want to be on a server with 90% unironic nazis or a server filled with furry avatars larping as animals. There's no inbetween.
It's great never the less.
Or, the patrician option: be in a server with just yourself, and only follow people who aren't retards

Friendly reminder to sit straight.

Reminder that you do not get scoliosis because of prolonged sitting. At an young age it's idiopathic, if you're older (maybe 68+) your spine might go down the drain because of the obvious weakening of your body, it it's not already severely damaged from wagecucking.

What you do get from prolonged sitting is the weakening of your muscles. The result is more pressure on your spinal cord because something needs to hold that big head of yours and that leads to damage to your vertebrae.

It's the equivalent of a car accident. It cracks resulting in nerve injury and the worst case is you'll lose feeling in your penis, but you don't use that one so who gives a shit.

For example, if you are not actively working out to strengthen it, your neck is most likely weak as shit. You don't feel it because you're young, but it will eventually get you. I had a minor neck injury and I had trouble sitting in front of the PC for a while until I strengthened that whole area.

There's no real solution though. Time will get you. Best practice is to mix sitting and standing up while working, ergonomic chairs, not sitting in an unnatural angle and an active lifestyle after work, so no binge like Londonfrog.

In what ways is it better than Linux in a programming environment?

Also, which is better: FreeBSD or OpenBSD?
please no wanblows and loonux BTFO replies.

What's the difference between BSD and any regular linux distro? What (if anything) makes it better/worse?
Unfortunately all operating systems balance the "what it is designed for and what the user wants out of it". I say unfortunately for two reasons; one is because it means the operating system never reaches full potential and two because you're not gonna like where OpenBSD sits on that scale. OpenBSD is very much a "ourway or the highway" style of operating system, they dropped 32bit support in such a way very early on because the dev team just didn't want to spend the next 10 years developing subpar 32bit/64bit compatibility and wanted either good coded 32bit practices OR good coded 64bit practices. Everything to do with OpenBSD development is about being the best, sometimes that means being modern or user friendly, most of the time it means building httpd/libressl from scratch and telling people who still want to run sshv1 to fuck right off. If you want to like OpenBSD, read then re-read their faq, if you're thinking "this has nothing to do with what I want from OpenBSD" you either make what you want from openbsd as a dev or run for the hills. It doesn't get easier, you just need to get better at C libraries.
I don't give a shit about BSD. Not a single shit!
>it's behind openbsd in gpu support and doesn't have the amdgpu driver yet
It's in current for many cards. Also, I thought the OpenBSD devs said they were never going to implement AMDGPU because it was too big? Maybe they changed it, but I do know that OpenBSD will never have WINE by design, and that's a dealbreaker for me.
