But Linus and company made the hardest component so it really should be called Linux/GNU
I am using FreeBSD. Apart from the hug ban, everything else is great.
I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as Linux/GNU, is in fact, GNU/Linux/Xorg, or as I've recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux plus Xorg. 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, and the Xorg system that runs the graphical server.

There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use (GNU and Xorg being the other parts). 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 GNU and Xorg: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added and Xorg graphic server on top, or GNU/Linux/Xorg. All the so-called "Linux" distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux/Xorg.

What's your opinion on this?

Waiting for Leap 15.
Unfortunately not the case in my experience. I've used Arch for 5 years and TW for 2-ish. Tumbleweed seems to break rarely, but still it occasionally happens. With Arch it's more my own doing that might break it (has happened twice in that time). But with TW and btrfs snapshots, it's easy to recover.
You should use the netinstall iso if you want to be minimalist
I use opensuse. Here are my thoughts about it.
- Snapshots. This is really a killer feature because if your system is buggy from an update you can rollback.
- The installer is the best of any distro because you can change any package you add. You can install for example Cinnamon instead of Plasma and make your install as minimal as you want.
- There's a GUI for everything.

- Poor hardware suppport. They should add more botnet drivers in the distro so they can compete better with Ubuntu.
What in the name of fuck

Hi guys! Russian's here.

Since our government has made a lot of webistes unavailable in an attempt to ban Telegram, do you happen to have a vpn account for me?

>a much poorer
Emmm I'm not sure about it, why are we poorer then China again?
>Telegram works just fine in Russia.
Not really, today it was impossible to use it without proxy-servers.

I use proxies instead of vpn for it, most of the websites I use weren't afficted by RKN's madness.
Can someone redpill me on why Russia and Iran want to ban Telegram? The obvious answer is that they want more control, but that argument falls short when they don't give a fuck about other secure messaging apps like WhatsApp (which is encrypted by default), Signal, Wire etc

So why do they wish to ban Telegram specifically? Do they know something we don't, is the West harvesting all data from people's conversations and has the potential to gain intrigue from Russia/Iran?
maybe i haven't tried before because i'm not retarded, ever think of that?
Why did you Russians work so hard to elect Trump? Hitler didn't work out so well for you last time.

So after experiencing the botnet that is chrome browser(I Explicitly set "Continue running background apps when Google Chrome is closed" to OFF and found about 20 chrome processes anyway when i closed it) I am making a switch to either Firefox (which is botnet apparently) brave (which is also apparently botnet) and net surf. I was going to fucking just end the browser wars and start developing a /g/ developed approved browser but it looks like netsurf has accomplished what I wanted to do, the way I wanted to do it. What are your thoughts on this browser battle? And how the fuck does my png screencap have an embedded file (just rejected trying to post.)
>start developing a /g/ developed approved browser
Thank god you didn't. From your post I don't think you're intelligent enough for this task.
Is it because your feeble little mind thought that sentence didn't make sense? or is because you are insecure about your own ability to create something of substance instead of just repeating fizzbuzz nonsense.
Define botnet.

I love palemoon, based furgod
I love Pale Moon and it's my main browser, but being single threaded makes it way slower than Firefox Quantum in low powered multicore processors (like the Celeron N3150 I'm using). I'm so tired of having a tab using 25% of CPU and freezing all the rest until it's done.

Why does 4chan X periodically forget posts I've made, as well as losing my last place in a thread?
That wont do anything, he didnt shut down windows properly and it has left over files preventing it from being mounted safely
Is there a way to get image hover to go to the right instead of following cursor, like how it works in the inline extension, in 4chan X or a separate script for it?
I shut down my pc so there should be no issue
sink in my cum nigger if im askin here is because I already tried whats on the screen
im a special kid. also try tipying mount and tabbing to see the fast mount options

i fixed the error with this https://askubuntu.com/a/566381

your question is probably not stupid enough or too complicated for the average minors who browse this shithole

>I shut down my pc so there should be no issue
Well, a normal shutdown is a fast shutdown, basically a fancy hibernate.
You need to disable "Fast shutdown" in the power options to do a proper shutdown.

Don't buy used headphones from Japan. Many of them smoke, I had to dip my headphones in baking soda to get rid of the cigarette smell.

redpill me on magnets
i want them oppos but I heard the pads get destroyed
you're not wrong.

Mine the earpads started to deteroirate (likely would have lasted 3 years at their wear and tear rate) but then the top padding separated so I RMA'd it. But since Oppo digital is kill, I can't recommend them in good faith.

You can always go for the Audeze Sine's or iSines. I think I prefer the iSine's to the Oppo's and for an "IEM" they deliver headphone level quality.

If you're in Canada, there's some PM-3's and Sines for $300CAD shipped.
oh and for the apeal.

dat subbass. Planar's are fucking magical. The LCD-X deliver amazement upon first listen and require no amp. Once you try out Planars you can't go back. They easily compete with headphones 2-3x their price in every price range.
