>waste a whole hour hunting around for audio codecs and drivers in the kernel
You don't have to install Linux to see what it's kernel contains. Just check the source.
You wrote ReactOS wrong
It took him an hour to figure out Firefox requires PulseAudio.
My problem is not that it doesn't work out of the box, my problem is that I have to do a whole bunch of shit after setting up ALSA and PA because they are a pile of shit and try to use my HDMI port to output audio by default.
Also, the fix to my audio problem is not the same every time. I had a Gentoo kernel with working audio and documented the steps I took to get audio to work; after installing Gentoo again on the same hardware with said kernel and following the same steps, audio did not work. This is not tinkering with my computer, this is just an unnecessary pain in the ass.

nah. loadup debian or some shit on your macbook and get back to me. As a Mac user my whole life, I"m ready to throw this shit out the window.
Just unpacked my new Macbook X™ that I was lucky enough to get for $1250. Revolutionary optimized keyboard is so fucking comfy, can't imagine using any other keyboard now. And look at the super-bright minimalistic MacBoard™ - one-of-a-kind technology that allows you to visually display any information, literally the brand-new invention brought to you by Tim Jobs himself. So revolutionary! The design's great, too, goes so great with the mandatory 15 stickers I attach to any device I use, those round corners & lightweight materials - daym.

How do I make myself do the work? I'm working towards a political science degree (no bully please, I plan to go to law school after it) and I enjoy the classes. I semi regularly participate in class discussions (which is big for me because I have the tism), I like the content, but when I get home and have to do homework I just... can't. Or don't, I don't know. What is wrong with me?

I'm skating by on C's and low B's, there's no way that'll be enough for law school, will it? Should I be honest with myself and set a different career path? What else would I do? I don't want to work at walmart for the rest of my life. Any help is appreciated, I don't really have anyone else to ask.
Just wait until you learn about phase locked loops, compensators, and active filter circuits in general
That's a good question. I would check with your local sec jobs, and see if they want any. Most certs will help rather than harm you.

The alternative to getting certs is showing that you have the applicable knowledge of a certain cert. You could provide solutions to small xss issues, or give write ups on how you found/exploited a vulnerability in a network.

Something along those lines will impress any employer. And the experience is invaluable as well.

I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I've recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX.

Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called "Linux", and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project.

There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use. Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine's resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called "Linux" distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux.
Why do I need to turn off my VPN before some trackers work? And why do some stop working when I turn it back on? Is it qbit or are some trackers just assholes?
What, if anything, is the difference between HTPC software like kodi/plex/playon and much simpler options like mediatomb/minidlna/universalmediaserver?

I just switch to kubuntu from w7 and am looking to replace my serviio install with something free (prefer open source). I prefer gui management and options like transcode (although not 100% necessary), and this is my normal desktop and not a dedicated media server. Looking for "just werks", more than worried about minimal/bloat, but right now I wouldnt be using advanced features like dvr/tv tuner shit/etc, but might play around with more advanced options if they exist in the future like internet streaming. Like current support. Technically all I need right now is a DLNA server though so pretty basic on actual needs.

I googled the question but got unsatisfactory answers. Is one or the other better for any specific reasons or any specific uses?

A fan with reasonably high static pressure (e.g. Noctua, Corsair SP) should be able to overcome the drive cage
On the side would probably be best for CPU temps
i dont know if there is anything that you can get in that pricerange that isnt vulnerable to meltdown, at least not that supports ecc and headless. best bet would be trying to find a b350 or a320 that supports ecc and using a 2200g i would thing, afaik ecc still works there.
maybe some of the new ryzen embeded stuff, if theres any consumer gear available.

ok, scratch this I think.
