You would have got the w98 explorer shell in linux with wine.
You would be a degenerate using proprietary software.
I know the NT 4 shell actually runs. It almost works, it just can't launch any programs.

Mozilla Firefox 51 will launch with support for the Free Lossless Audio Codec (FLAC) built-in to the web browser.

If you check browser support for various audio and video codecs, you will soon realize that support is a mess.

Not only is it different depending on the web browser that you are using, but it may also be different depending on the operating system.

Some formats, like mp3 or H.264, are supported by the majority of browsers while others, like FLAC or Ogg are not necessarily.

While you may not come across a single service or site that supports FLAC or OGG depending on what you do on the Internet, you will benefit from native integration if you do.

FLAC is for instance used by several high quality audio streaming services that offer lossless audio streams.

Fuck that. We already have MP3. There is no need for that placebo shit.

>inb4 audiophiles claiming they can tell a difference
But will it stop being so SHITTY?
I really don't want to switch to chrome but I'm on a clean windows install and with not even 30 tabs it's hell on earth.
People complain about systemd taking over their computer like a disease but nobody seems to care that web browsers are doing the same thing but worse.
FLAC directly in your browser without javascript

Removing compression from the Internet is a step in the right direction
They should work on fixing their shitty browser that's stuck in 2006 and worry about FLAC later

Yeah, I'll try that, thanks again.

Figured I should ask about it here to see if there was something obvious wrong with that phone or if there was a clear better alternative before putting any more effort into it.

I needed a new phone, and going in I was pretty set on the Priv. However, I've come to the conclusion that it just isn't competitively priced. As much as I am a patriot (canuck), I can't justify spending $650CAD (ON SALE) for a phone that doesn't really match up to other phones in that price range. I think I'm going to settle on the Lumia 950, as cameras are a big selling point for me in a phone
Who here is in the US and uses any Xiaomi (or any other China) phones? I've been using Willmyphonework and haven't found any that work completely on US networks.
willmyphonework is retarded. Get the international version of redmi note 3 pro and it'll work on t-mobile with 4g(non LTE). This version is available on geekbuying and aliexpress lately.

Or else just don't buy a chink phone

With or without pointer shadow? Personally I prefer it enabled, makes the pointer easier to locate. It's the first thing I enable on every PC in case it's disabled.

Have a buddy willing to sell me his used 4770 non-k for $200, do you think its a good price for an upgrade from my amd Athlon x4 750k? Or should I just spend more to get a newer generation i7?

>tfw got a 4770k for $200 back in 2013 and people are paying $100+ more for a rebrand or skymeme
good price
intel cpus don't drop down in price very far unless they are 5 years old
you can get a $100 2500k, overclock it and have the performance of a stock 6600k. non-k cpus are trash and $200 is way too much for one.
how is skylake a meme if I upgraded from an old i5? checkmate
Because the only gains over a 4790k is just chipset improvements. Might as well go X99

Isnt that temp the default for when it cant read the thermometer? Ive seen that before.
Unfragmented 10GB video files on a modern desktop drive are a long ways from a bunch of fragmented program files on a laptop one.
It scanned my 640GB media drive in 30 seconds and my 2TB in 70.
My SSD, which is only 65GB used (25GB of which is pagefile and hiberfil) is now sitting at 4 minutes and not even 33% done.

Has everyone seen the honor the call series on how he lied about a phone giveaway contest? Dude has made tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, off lying to his audience

Also he's just a huge shill, when's the last time he reacted negatively to anything?
He said he'll do giveaway again, with iphones and samsungs.
