I once naively thought it might not have been right to troll the Jews on the internet when I was 14, and felt troll's remorse, but then I realized something, which they did in retaliation (stalked me in ways most people couldn't and harassed me everywhere), and decided to do it all over again (troll them). It is a coincidence that they deserved it.

Not necessarily true. A lot of compilers these days allow for software emulated 128 bit math. It's incredibly slow (factor of ~20 slow), but if your program needs it, it needs it.

I have a bigger problem, probably with OpenBox:

Are there any UIs where the DPI is actually an easy setting to deal with?

All I want to do is make the taskbar icons larger, like the max/min/quit icons.

I tried for at least two evenings before, going so far as to get new icon sets and manually change a ton of shit, and it wouldn't change. Fucking xorg had dpi settings before, why does Linux have to go and ruin fucking everything.

MATE is the best DE at the moment. Nothing can beat it and I don't see that changing anytime soon. It's light, it's customisable, continuously developed and improved, based on Gnome 2 in terms of look, ported to Gtk3 and soon Wayland. Literally nothing else you could ask.

Removable batteries and expandable storage puts money in the hands of IP thieves. They also put consumers in danger because a fake battery could explode and a fake card could lose vital data.

Also, it takes money away from honest manufacturers. If you could expand your storage or replace your battery you have less reason to buy a new device every year.

No, it's the amd/ati cursor bug and it still exists in 2015.

I have not yet seen the old classic patterns but every time I restart X my cursor looks different. Also if I turn my TV off when the input is not the one from my laptop, when I come back the display is all garbled.

Again, cursor bug is also on Windows, especially on multi-monitor setups.
