Maybe one of those nifty Sony Vaios. I kind of already have every laptop I want. Mostly PowerBooks and Thinkpads.
P is successor of W series. W series was discontinued few years ago.
You don't need to, but it helps a little. It will also get dusty, so you might need to clean it.
Probably a Razer with a 2080
I'd have a new mobo designed for an X210 so I could use modern processors and shit.

Why is this browser such a piece of shit? I'm forcing myself to use it but it's such a fucking meme it's not even funny, honestly it's so bad it makes me miss IE.

I have 3 major annoyances with it
>if you move your mouse to the very top of the screen, you can 't click on tabs. You have to move your mouse slightly lower than the topmost row of pixels to click on tabs. Fucking why?

>You can't middle click the home button to open home in a new tab. YOu have to click on the + button which may or may not be in the same position every time due to open tabs. How could they fuck up so bad?

>The font rendering is atrocious, it looks so fucking bad, on top of that, there doesn't seem to be any way to remove this dumbfuck spellchecker or change its Language because I am typing in English but my native Language is Italian so on top of the horrible fonts I also have to see every word with a red underline.

Fuck this piece of shit, is there anyone who unironically uses it?

I use chromium edge. I like it so much. I hope all of the original edge features (like set tabs aside) will come to it.
I 100% recommend it.

control click werks just fine

awful browser
Literally none of your points are actually legit, everything works as intended on my end. Also Edge has got some really nice features, like god-tier pdf viewer (for a browser), god-tier scrolling (especially on touchpads), page previews by hovering the tab, god-tier pen integration, and overall a pretty clean UI

Redpill me on OCaml, what are your thoughts ?

t. procedural retard who never tried other paradigms

A bunch of insults, not a single clever argument.

Functional languages are harder to make efficient than dirty programs with global variables and side effects everywhere, but with under 10x C, it's quite enjoyable. Working with higher-order functions, ADT, GADT, and modules or typeclasses, you get a language with the highest level of reasoning, and still a really nice performance. And once you've used functional programming, it's hard to go back. Even very popular languages such as Java and C++ are adopting concepts like options or streams in their latest standards.
> Just use rust instead unless you really need the ML-y functionalism
Fun how people tend to turn it the other way around. The fact is, "functionalism" eases your day, you end up writing shorter and nicer code, in a shorter time too, whereas you don't always need performance.

Just use OCaml unless you really need to fight with the compiler for hours for (C/C++)-like performance
True, imo it is one of the only fully functional languages that still lets you do almost whatever you want to do.
basically OCaml + .NET library, with an even smaller and less active community. A nice language though, the updates are showing that some guys at Microsoft are still keeping the thing alive, and the total interoperability with C# makes it compatible with a lot of projects, which allows a functional guy to work in the same team as a C# fanboi who has never written a List.map in his life. I think I'm going to give it a shot one day.
>really hard to understand at a first glance
Only if you've had to shove your head through OOP for years.
Once you start getting a bit into any programming language and have to think about ASTs, any lisp becomes natural and quite pleasant.
Anon, on top of that, consider people like Rich Hicky (Clojure's creator) who started out with Java, C++ and C# and once he actually learned Lisp realized "we've been doing it all wrong"
When real developers with two brain cells to rub together get their hands on any functional language they have the time of their life.

in the case of ubuntu isn't a toss up? mostly comes down to mismatched dependencies and then you have a ppa frakenstein for newer (i.e. nightly) software
every 6 months at least the minimum is raised
You a God, God.
Just install Ubuntu without non-free/propietary shit. The installer has a checkbox to install propietary drivers. Don't click it. Also, don't use non-free repositories.

After that, you're set. Your chances of successfully installing Ubuntu look good.

My friends and I use WhatsApp, but that's mostly because I was in the Navy and they're stationed everywhere. My real estate brokerage also uses it.

I've also noticed that it's big with Latino people.
It's big in South America and Europe.
Afaik it goes like this.
North Americans : SMS
South Americans & Euros: WhatsApp
China: WeChat
Korea: KakaoTalk
Japan: Line
Everyone that says imessage and sms, do you not have a group of friends? How the hell do you make plans, you send texts to 15 people? Me and my friends have a group chat, it's good also to send memes or chat in general

The windows store is just a Linux repository but with a GUI.
you're fucking retarded.
microsoft's main market reach is in businesses
The store is just website, it displays html and javascript
Stop messing with things you don't understand. I know you wanted to be a cool kid who stopped microsoft from spying on you. If you disabled half of their shit, don't expect their services to work properly.

Press F Win bros. Time to move on to better alternatives with more features like Groupy or Tidytabs.

I am looking at things like QA, technical writing, business analyst, or possibly some type of agile management. My soft skills are good but my peanut brain is too slow for high performance technical work. Any advice guys? Please

I'd say you shouldn't beat yourself over it. I, too, went in expecting to work with literal geniuses but what I found was just normal people, an unexpected amount of fuck ups and drug addicts, with average intelligence. My path crossed with maybe two or three legit intelligent peeps, but most of the geniuses are researching or working in the academia, creating new programming languages for us to learn, I guess.
I mean, there's nothing prestigious in what we do, there's just an overabundance of jobs and higher wages because our craft makes the world go around, but we're peons, pawns, blue collars fucks that get their hands dirty in any business hierarchy. If you're feeling below average then maybe get promoted out of programming with networking and shit as so many do. Or work with testing, pre sales, system analysis, whatever the fuck.
I think you underestimate how many true brainlets are in the field. The brainlets are the retards on Twitter who’re arrogant because they can write a hash table.

It's not quite as clear cut as that. The Christchurch shooting happened in a largely peaceful (almost) first world country. This happened in a country with a history of problems and a number of different prominent religions. None of the incidents that have happened in France, England, Germany, or elsewhere have had a media shutdown like this, and a lot of it comes down to the fact that in the west, we really only care about other western countries.

What is the best Android pdf reader?
Preferably one that allows me to edit with a stylus, be able to have multiple bookmarks, and be able to hold pages like you would with a normal book.
9 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Trust me,if you value smoothness of scrolling,fast page rendering and fast startup there is no other option.
And I searched man.
These are correct.
Moon-reader as these say
I tried pretty much everyone and my favorite is Readera. muPDF, MoonReader are also top tier. FBReader and Lithium (slow as fuck to resume, biggest drawback) come close.
Xodo is quite good. mupdf is great if you only want to view pdfs.
