Do people really like this crap? It's like bash for babies, and it's even WORSE than bash. Do experienced Linux users ever recommend this shit? It's such a piece of shit, I'd rather hand copies of some intro course to bash rather than even suggest using it.

They share a common ancestor with Bourne shell.
sorry my bad. i think i'm just remembering the days i used zsh, the scripting syntax has some stuff from csh. still i don't miss any features from zsh with bash.
fish is dogshit for scripting and has a horrendous configuration model, but as an interactive shell, bash doesn't come anywhere close. zsh can be made fish-like via plugins, but by the time you've done that, all you've created is a half-assed fish that takes two seconds to get to the prompt on startup.

That being said, I do keep eye on this project: https://github.com/akinomyoga/ble.sh

I'd love to be able to drop fish and just use bash exclusively, but last I used it, this project was a little finicky.
It uses some bits and pieces from csh but as a whole has little semblance to it, since csh is a silly mess.

Yep. To immerse your adolescent mind into 8-bit computing, geek out with BASIC, assembly/machine code, to see technology improve exponentially over the years...

And to stop caring about new tech at around 2005. Stay with single core CPUs, PS/2 peripherals and CRT monitors. Stick to Windows XP and cmd. Any further "upgrades" would be pointless, since the workflow will have been mastered.

As every human being reading this post should know, /g/ has increasingly been taken over with the passing of time. We've got to the point in which active censorship is taking place, as we have (or not) seen with >>>/qa/5289252 and my experience (pic related). The advertisement and propaganda in this place have become unbearable.

The day I was banned I had made several other posts with that very same IP (my home IP, wich I had been using for days before), yet I got banned for posting specifically that in an advertisement thread.

what is the current opinion of a framework laptop? picrel, it's my build. I use linux everywhere but I want to do a *little* bit of windows stuff, so I plan on putting windows on there.

it seems like pretty much everything I've ever wanted in a single package (modular and replaceable parts especially), so what's the catch?

Hard no until they get an AMD variant. Soft no until they prove gen2 motherboards will be 100% compatible with all other gen1 hardware.
It would be fucking stupid to take a chance on what they claim only for them to pull a sneaky on us and make gen1 chassis, expansion cards, battery, etc incompatible with the next motherboard/cpu combo they release.
It's basically the price of a normal laptop, framework starts at $999

Yeah but OP was crying about not being able to play closed source games because of (closed source) Steam which makes no sense

also Lutris is the way to go

Hope yours lasts longer than mine did. I didn't feel like jumping through hoops a third time to get one unlocked by LG which may not be possible anymore now that they stopped making phones anyway.

Because every single new phone comes with notch or a punch hole and retarded screen ratio/resolution withcut off corners

Not him but it's this. Good for if you are too lazy to output the assembly manually and between all the different configurations available.

in modern C++ you should do
template <
typename OnCond,
typename OnNotCond,
typename Rt = std::invoke_result<OnCond>,
typename Rt2 = std::invoke_result<OnNotCond>,
std::enable_if_t<std::is_same_v<Rt, Rt2>, bool> = true
Rt eval(bool condition, OnCond fn, OnNotCond othFn) {
if (condition) { return fn(); } else { return othFn(); }

for readability

Logitech g403
Microsoft intellimouse pro
Any zowie
Every new Logitech mouse develops a double click issue due to shite switches. Just a matter of time. I've had two G203s and one G305 fail on me and hear the same about every model up through the G Pro Wireless and other overpriced turds.
works on my machine
I have a chink bluetooth mouse that has the same switches as logitech mice, but the button is blue instead of white. Can I solder off the switches from the chink mouse and solder them onto the logitech one? They seem to have the exact same pins.

>my cousin was a homosexual until he shit out his intestinal worms
I'll pretend this isn't a larp for a second because the implications of this are hilarious.
If the ass parasites cause homosexuality in men, what would they cause in women? Because lesbians don't have ass parasites in the same way male homosexuals do, so they likely aren't the cause of lesbianism.
If the cure for male homosexuality is the removal of intestinal worms, is cure for female homosexuality the insertion of intestinal worms?
Women lack sexuality, they only care about sex as a weapon.
oh, so you're a closeted fag. that explains it.

>Utilitarian design: e.g. indicator LEDs, 7 row keyboard layout on older models
>Docking stations that easily turns your laptop into a desktop

And that's with the default Thinkfan smart config that makes the fan quiet.
