how often do you change packages..
Imagine using outdated packages.
I don't like this UI (icons and font), how can I pimp it to be sleek?
forgot pic
You get rid of the toolbars, add your favorite theme and font, and voila.
If you want to rice it further you can install doom mode line and the all-the-icons package.
Or you could take a look at Centaur Emacs, which does look pretty slick.

B-but I thought you liked me Anon.That's what came to /g/ for, to laugh at IToddlers and to post me.
These. Also, there is actual good discussion too. Not everything is shitposting or low IQ bait.

>I'm hoping /pol/ will leave and spam their political outrage/cumbrain threads somewhere else since it started relatively recently
That's been happening for a long time. There is some crossposting. That's just how things are. /g/ will never be /pol/ though. The culture is just different.

>should I be thinking of it as a "separate repo" that just points to the github?
No. Because that implies you'd still use your normal package manager.
You should think of it as a separate package manager that you use in addition to your existing package manager.

But at any rate, snaps and flatpaks suck. Get Guix instead.

Wew lad.

Seriously this looks like a literal phone of the future. The design is unlike anything we've ever seen and you can definitely still see it being cool 5 years from now.

>inb4 b-but 60hz...
Fuck off with that weak shit argument.
55 replies and 10 images omitted. Click here to view.
Nah I like my 90hz and no stupid camera hole. Other than that it's great. Had a note 3 and 4 and 8 for reference
nonremovable batteries are indefensible. The entire reason for this design trend is planned obsolescence and forcing consumers to buy a new overpriced phone every 2-3 years when the battery capacity starts to go bad, rather than just being able to easily buy a cheap replacement battery.

>People don't realize how slow those machines really were.
Subjective speed of computers vastly improved only lately with SSDs and more accent on boot times etc... But Windows 98 on Pentium II and Windows Vista or 7 on a modern computer (without SSD) run basically equally fast.

Thanks for adding to the depression lads. Fucking hell.

how do you copy right or copyleft code anyways?
lets say i make a code
print "hello world"
okay now i change it
print "hello world!"
i added an exclamation point
bam now the copyright is invalidated
If you have a problem with the GPL, you are part of the very problem it intends to solve. It seems to be doing a good job.
>The fact that you have to reveal your source code before sharing. That's not freedom, that's oppression.

That simply prevents you from making money off of redistribution.
You want the benefit of the code thousands of people who have dedicated time/effort to crafting, but you want to throw out the ethos they created it all under, for your OWN benefit.

Small smartphone is basically dead in today market. The only small smartphone with latest Android OS is the Nokia 1 and that is over a year old and only in certain market you can found them.
Small phones exist and are plenty out there, name brands have dropped them though. Companies still make them out the ass, you just need look around

They never ask about how hard you must work for it.
Tell me about your tech jobs /G/.
Mine is not super tech oriented, I'm a Civil Engineer for the U.S. Army corps of Engineers.

is there any bluetooth gamepad out there that has a solid build quality? i was enjoying my 8bitdo but the b button has started sticking after less than a year. meanwhile my old gamecube pads still work flawlessly. should i just get a ps4 pad?

I actually don't mind my Xbone controller, I've had it for a while and it's chugging along nicely. Works great for steam games and emulators, though I've tried less of the latter.

Although if I were to buy a controller again I'd probably go for a PS4 one. Simply because the triggers are better for Rocket League and you have a better chance of it working with Bluetooth (M$ basically requires a proprietary dongle that only works with Windows, i sold mine when i ditched Wangblows and just use my controller wired now).
found and extremely small rip in the rubber next to the contact. it ripped way more as i was cleaning it. trimmed the edge and rotated it 180 degrees as a bush fix, wish me luck.
If you mean the official nintendo one, these develop stick drift as they've got the same sticks as the joycons.
I also use a Switch pro controller, but wired. How the fuck do you manage to play it wireless? It's a pain in the ass to setup a wireless controller on PC, be it PS4 or Switch. In the end I just play with Switch pro wired or OP pic related wireless.
>b button sticking
I have one. The shitty build quality is what causes that.

What's the oldest computer you've used or experienced in first person? No meme answers like abacus, let's keep this comfy. I'm talking about punchcards, mechanical, first IBMs, Apples and whatnot.

When I was 5 or 6 my uncle brought over his new "luggable" laptop with a monochrome screen, 386dx and DOS. Probably the oldest thing I've touched.
Oldest I've ever used was my grandpas Commodore PET he restored
Oldest I own is a Vic 20 from 1982
Oldest I've used extensively for more than just the lols is a Thinkpad 380ED from 1997
I trained on Data Entry for IBM. That's punches and verifiers. 024, 026, 056 and then 029 and 059. Then oddball stuff like the 011 hand punch.
Was very glad to get out of there.

I used an Apple IIc to play Aliens vs Predator. I don't remember much of it. Besides that maybe a Apple Powerbook G3. 333MHz PowerPC with an ATI Rage gpu. 128MB RAM.

It delivered MANY pornographic images to my eyeballs.
