i dropped my T530 on the pavement from my car a couple times, not even any damage to the screen, just some scratches on the corner.

this is why I eventualy want to get a P5x series, because that's the only series that still has a rollcage, spill tray, .etc. But Lenovo keeps on insisting on using a numpad. I understand most people using a workstation needs that, and maybe I can get over it not being centered ** but not even the P7x actually uses a full-sized keyboard. It's the slightly-miniaturized (to squeeze in the numpad) keyboard on both the P5x and P7x to save costs. The P1 that's coming out is a crappy ultrabook that probably won't even have an ethernet port.

I didn't drop mine until today. I'm getting new windows, and the only place where I can sit now is the toilet with the lid down. My thinkpad was balanced on the washing basin. I don't know, I must have dragged the power cord with my foot when I got up.

Thankfully it's back to the desk and chair after today.

I hate the redpill meme but this is 100% accurate.
Arch offers nothing outside of being a meme. Manjaro is the better version of it, since it still has the aur and it doesn't release security updates until it is tested, but people shit on Manjaro because its not in the "I installed Arch, Look at me" groups. You can literally install any linux binary on any linux system if you're competent enough.

Youtube already has a way too large enough of a backlog of videos, which no other site can possibly afford to store. Along with having a large audience to back it. It's not going to be replaced.

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.
