I genuinely do not understand why anyone would use KDE in the current year.

> working implementations already exist
> already
It has been 12-13 years and almost nothing was ported / reimplemented.

What was ported is unstable bloat - GNOME or worse. Things like desktop automation frameworks (autokey and such) do not even work since Wayland delegates everything to compositors that only have pretty shit implementations. It's an absolute train wreck again, like the GNOMES they mostly seem to think they need to support some pleb consumer with a tablet that will never do anything much.
Personally I use KDE3 which as far as I am concerned is essentially perfect except for the multiple monitor management which is absolute trash.
My problem with GNOME is simply that it is the worst DE in every way.
It isn't pretty like KDE can be
It doesn't run smoothly like TDE or LXDE
It isn't customizable like KDE or MATE
It takes up more resources than almost every DE I can think of except maybe Cinnamon

It's weird because while GNOME is pretty bad, MATE until GTK3 was more or less the best

>gtk works

>the only de that matters works
>tiling autism works

>hurr nothing works
Sometimes I wonder if /g/tards live in some kind of parallel dimension.
I do not accept these excuses. Supporting XFCE4, awesome and fluxbox (even as partial reimplementations) as well as remote desktops, desktop automation and so on is the benchmark and requirement for an Xorg replacement.

The result after 13y or what it is now is just pathetic. A few mostly unstable DE/WM. GNOME not even doing things with Wayland (e.g. DBUS in many situations rather than Wayland IPC). Everything delegated to half assed software supposed to be reimplemented below Wayland and configuration is a bigger mess than with Xorg. It's really just bad.

Are there any examples of the following working basic web functionality:

Question for owners: Do you use it for science and engineering textbooks, research papers and the like? How often do you encounter plots or diagrams where grayscale is not enough to understand them properly?

I know there's e-paper with basic color capability now but they all have major downsides
7 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
I just want an e-reader around the size of an A4 sheet (so 10-13 inches) for under 150€. I don't care about response time
Why chinks haven't come with one yet??
honestly, ereaders for textbooks is a meme. Not so bad when you're going by page by page, like doing questions, but quickly cross-referencing concepts a chapter ago is a pain in the ass. Judicious use of bookmarks helps, but flicking the pages of a textbook is just easier.
Too bad higher education books cost shittons.
>grayscale is not enough to understand them properly?
>10-13 inches)
E-readers have very slow refresh "rate" compared to devices with normal screens. (Technically it's refresh speed since they only need to refresh the screen only when a change is happening at the screen, but each refresh is slow is on average hundreds of milliseconds slow) This wouldn't be so bad with static content like books, however whenever you turn a page or press a button there is a very noticeable lag. It's especially egregious with touchscreen e-readers because when you press a button on the screen you don't get immediate feedback and you may instinctually press the screen again at which point it'll register it as a button press for the new screen that didn't even show itself yet.
Good e-readers give you an option to vastly improve their refresh speed at the cost of page/image quality. My Onyx Boox has this option, if you put it at maximum refresh speed it can even play Youtube videos, albeit in grayscale and wtih lower fps than the source.

Are there any drawbacks to having your PC run 24/7 with no restarts?
4 replies omitted. Click here to view.
The only drawbacks to having a computer on all the time are energy, wear on parts, and dust.

That's it.

Just like a car more mileage and heat is more wear and tear on the eternals. But I believe that the heat cycling is actually worse. When things get gold they shrink but expand when they heat up.

So tldr, no just electric.
wear on parts is a myth, the only wear you can cause is if you run it outside of its thermal or power limitations such as overclocking or
over volting
Ive run my pc from 2014 24/7 and had no problems. Decommissioned it in 2019 and built a new pc.

Ive been running a file server for 24/7 for around 2 years now and with all of the hardware never going over 40c even in the most demanding tasks I'm pretty sure everything is going well.
Electricity costs
Been running a mac mini 2010 server model 24/7. Only shut down to clean and to upgrade to ssd. Daily driver for many tasks. Only use windows for gaymen and CAD. Linux (Debian) for online work etc..

Nothing personal truscum

Nodejs is far from lightweight.
If you use it for Backend, you are retarded.
If you use nodejs runtime to develop webapps then its ok.
Web is shit. Js is shit. JQuery ends up in untestable, undebuggable bullshit.
In web react, agular, vue and svelte are 100% ok.

BUT the bloat is the fault of webdevs. Webdevs are 100% retarded lazy fucks. 1000 gorillion npm libraries 666 MB of unused bootstrap shit, material ui, and javascript. Untreeshakable bullshit because webdevs are to retarded to create tooltips or some shit. Webdevs don't understand Dom size. Don't understand mudularisation/codesplitting, don't understand Virtual DOM drawbacks.
Don't understand memoryleaks because of 2038 jabillion eventlistener or undiscarded polling mechanism or in case of rxjs subscriptions.

Node JS Runtime for webdev 100% ok. Everything before was worse.
Everyone who uses js as a real BE should lick stones in hell.
Not node JS is bloat but webdevs are.

Are you retarded?
You just need to pass some jvm parameters:
Xms128m -Xmx128m
Now its working. Wooo oooh aaah. How magical.
Nodejs for frontend is fine. Fur backend fuck no. Multithreadding sucks monkey ball. And most devs don't understand the concept of memoryleaks. Which on my expirience happen often in NodeJS backend.
Seconded. Read the fucking manual how to use the jvm.
>you just can't make a jit-ed language with dynamic typing and float for everything fast, it's juts not possible by design.
t. doesn't understand what jit means
Yeah, Google made Go only to use Node.js everywhere. Shit bait, 0/10.

There is nothing more retarded than calling Linux GNU/Linux, it is simply a cope devised by the cucks in the FSF and anybody who calls it Gnu/Linux is complicit. Now, i'm not saying that gnu didn't do shit for linux, because they did, however their contributions don't deserve the gnu / in front of linux why? Because the software you run on your os no matter how big a part of the os it is, can always be ported to other oses, the only real difference between oses is the kernel and linux's kernel is called linux therefore the whole os is called linux.
Then, for example:
Why isn't Windows XP called NT?
It technically is, except nobody calls it that because windows xp is a better name than Microsoft/NT 5
