Fucking consumer board.
Simpler, more general statement: you shouldn't buy a TV.
I won't disagree with that. TVs are complete and utter dogshit and completely dead to me since you can't get dumb TVs anymore without spending thousands on "enterprise" models.
Mostly for "flash sales", but not for major sales since the item you are looking for will be on sale.
If you buy something from a flash sale, you are super lucky or you are a sheep.
There is rarely any actual deals.

So I've been using various linux distros and stuff. But my conception of what a distro is, is still pretty vague. Like to me a distro is something you google to get isos lol.

But so what actually sets them apart? The big one should be the package manager right? Whether you use apt or yum or emerge, that's a big thing. I guess apart from that thing that determines a distro is which repositories you connect your package manager to?

Let's say have an ubuntu distro, and then install yum and connect it to the fedora repos. Does that mean you have now switched distros?
Just watch Chris Titus Tech video about it
>using ubuntu

I'm done with /g/. I'm definitely not done with GNU/Linux, I end up installing 10-20 new distros every year, that will probably never change. But this distro really made me realize I no longer give a shit about anything you guys have to say. It made me realize that technology reviewers mean nothing to me anymore. For so long have I been a child, now I can look into the mirror and truly see a man looking back at me. I no longer put any stock into the opinions or thoughts of people on the internet, from now on, I trust myself and those I consider closest to me in real life.

This is probably the single best distro I've used this entire generation. It's one of the funnest OSes I've used in years. I've installed all of your favorite distros. I'm probably better at programming than most of you guys are, I've developed literally hundreds of apps of all sorts of different genres and styles. At last I truly realize how retarded like 99% of you guys are.

There are a few of you guys out there who are alright, keep on keeping on. But eventually you guys too will realize you're like me: you truly fucking love technology with all your heart, it's probably impossible to change that about yourself. And you'll realize your posting on a board full of complete morons who don't even develop software, they just enjoy shitposting about it. These are people who are essentially broken on the inside and have likely lost most of their ability to enjoy things. The type of people who complain about stagnation in the industry, and when arguably the most revolutionary distro of the decade drops, they all gang up together to pretend that it isn't even linux, when in reality this is basically the most linuxy linux of all time.

Why is Ubuntu the most popular desktop Linux distro by far?

They started at a time when driver support was decent enough for average users to buy a new PC and actually use it with that set of hardware.
Driver support, especially for graphics cards, was always a major issue

That, coupled with LTS release cycle and a charismatic top guy won them the #1 spot
>Can't load your rootfs if you don't have an fs driver.
True. But silly thing to have any relevant filesystem support as a module, there are only handful.
Ubuntu has a lot of momentum, they sent CDs to everyone to get them using it back in the day. Many people are just continuing to stick with Ubuntu. Personally I got sick of the snaps and went to Fedora.

I've been using it for years, there is somethings I don't care for, but the muscle memory and knowledge of the quirks makes me uninterested in using anything else.

user.js covers all of about:config. There are other useful options that don't deal with telemetry which are useful. And you don't have to copy someone elses and look up each setting they have. You can just add what you want.

Yeah, I understood as much. I feel like I'm good with just default settings though, to be honest. I feel like I'm private and secure enough with just the strict setting, turning off the telemetry options in options and running an up to date version of FF. I also use DNS over HTTPS (using Cloudflare servers) since I prefer some random american corporation having the URL's of the sites I visit over my shady 3rd world ISP. I don't know how much of a good idea this is, but Firefox claim they have a special agreement with Cloudflare that forbids them from looking at the data they get from Firefox users. I just kinda gave up on the whole internet privacy thing to be honest, it's so tiresome.
Another question I have is in regards to Privacy Badger. People in this thread say it's redundant if you use the built in tracker blocker, but the built in blocker says there are no known trackers on 4channel.org while Privacy Badger blocks two Google ones. Why is that?

I have an older RMx and its fan was quite loud. But I'm not sure how it's revised now days and if they improved that or not.
I don't think any of them will be as quiet as if you open it up and replace the fan yourself. Maybe Bequiet, but those are hard to get in the USA.
And like the other anon said, since your build is likely <350W most of the time, it's likely the fan will never come on or will barely come on.
Porn is illegal in South Korea. Kpop is their softcore porn. It's very simple.

Who here uses this and how good is it actually?
3 replies omitted. Click here to view.
It's good on a server, like any Unix-like, desu

It's good to use on commercial devices cause mah BSD License

For desktop, Linux is pretty much good enough. You can go full minimalist nerd retard or you can go full GUI retard who doesn't even know what a console is, and it works both ways.
It is actually pretty good in a lot of ways. It has less support for some programs but if you are only using free software you should be fine. Also when compiling programs they have short descriptions of the features which I see as a benefit over something like gentoo.
back in 2009/10 I had a 955 x4 BE system with 8GB of ram and a 260GTX running FreeBSD and GNOME2
it was great then.
Fast forward to present day and there is absolutely no point to run FreeBSD on anything but appliances and servers
If I had an ancient potato of a computer I would probably run *BSD
but if you have anything newer than 5 years old for FreeBSD or ~8 Years old for Open and Net BSD then its just a waste of time/hardware
Anyone who says you can run BSD on the latest hardware is technically correct I guess, but you could do all the same shit better on Linux.
Then software compatibility comes to mind, small differences like inotify vs knotify can limit your software options and then people specifically using Linux-isms reduce the set of software even more.

tl;dr if your computer is ~10 years old and you are a suckless memer then *BSD should work great for you
>It's good on a server, like any Unix-like, desu

Not really, what if you need wine-mono for one of your services?

Incompatibilities up the ass, at this point Linux is more ubiquitous with compatibility than Unix which is proprietary and you shouldn't use it anyway.
>but you could do all the same shit better on Linux
Yes, but the os is shit tho

Why do people go for the f-91w instead of the newer variants?
I don't have an F-91W but I do have a W-59, which is basically the same thing with bigger buttons and more water resistance. I chose it because I want a watch so small that I forget it's there. My MQ24 also fills that purpose but I like seeing the date on my watch. Are there any newer variants that are the same size as the F-91W/W-59?
