When will UNIXfags admit that the Windows/DOS/CPM file structure is better for home users than the UNIX file structure?
156 replies and 7 images omitted. Click here to view.
I haven't AI botposted once, these are my actual opinions. I think >>101537594 might be botposting though.
>You're just using flowery language to make it sound like its the system for "educated intellectuals like myself"
Why do you feel that way? You're working backwards from a conclusion (People who like unix are arrogant -> this person likes unix -> this person is being arrogant)
This is just how I write when I'm being careful with my words and putting thought into the things I say.

I was once in your position. Now I am not. From this standpoint I realize much of the difficulty I had with Unix, and the problems I had with its philosophy, were simply because it was unfamiliar with it. It was a different way of thinking about things. Learning different perspectives takes a lot of time, and it can be frustrating. That's true in all cases. It's why language learning is so difficult. It's why people who don't grow up with computers find them to be difficult.
You might not understand everything I write, that's fine. The takeaway from that isn't "this person thinks they're better than me." That's getting defensive, and while it's an understandable reflex, all it will do is cause misunderstanding. The takeaway from that should be "Maybe I need to think on things a bit more."

At no point do I put you down, imply you're stupid, anything like that. I underline that I empathize with you, and I speak to my experience as someone who's moved beyond your current mindset. That's not an attack on you as a person, and you shouldn't take it as one. I'm you from the future, not the devil come to poke you with a stick.
>My use case is managing disks (not just hard, but floppy and optical as well)
>does better
And my use case is the exact same, and I'm dead serious in saying there's not a problem here. I know exactly why you feel the way you do, because I felt that same feeling. And then things clicked and I realize it was simply a matter of my own unfamiliarity. The problems were only ever because I didn't yet build up the familiarity to understand unix. The fact you think floppy and optical drives are handled in a radically different way from any other kind of block device should scream to you that you aren't quite "getting it", as though these are obscure and esoteric technologies.
I admit it but will still use Linux because Windows has become unusable.
>You're working backwards from a conclusion (People who like unix are arrogant -> this person likes unix -> this person is being arrogant)
You shouldn't make assumptions like that. My logic is ("intellectuals" and academics use overly flowery and scientific language to purposely hide how how stupid or unjustified their positions actually are -> you're using equivalently flowery language to advocate for a position which you've barely explained and which seems stupid to me -> you're doing it on purpose to hide how stupid and unjustified your position is.)

>The takeaway from that should be "Maybe I need to think on things a bit more."
I've had quite a lot of time to think about this and quite a lot of time to try and get used to it. Years. And from those years I've learned that I hate it, and no amount of exposure is going to make me stop hating it. As a matter of fact I've come to hate it more as I spent more time with it.

>I'm you from the future, not the devil come to poke you with a stick.
I'd prefer the devil over "the future". At least he's honest about how much he's going to make my life worse. You implying that you can somehow read my thoughts and that everything you say is inevitable is incredibly arrogant though, so maybe I should class you as an arrogant UNIX fan.

Do the consumer AM5 boards actually utilize the ECC bit? A lot of AM4 boards would boot with ECC DIMMs installed but you didn't get any error correction.

realistically it won't happen r-right?
i got a 4k oled and i'm still on 3080 10gb waiting on new gpus...
Yes you do if you don't want the unregistered meme.
Registered ddr5 has different layout and won't fit/work on an am5 board.
I guess you can LARP with the meme unregistered ECC if you really want though.
>though technically there are epyc branded am5 equivalents so every am5 board is an epyc board now
Delusional retardation I won't even bother to address.

what is the point of standby mode?

booting up your computer takes like 2 seconds so you might as well turn it off entirely and save the energy, so why does everybody use standby mode instead?
5 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
btw it registered a handler with the firmware, not a tipycal interrupt routine
shutdown is 2 seconds
standby is <1sec, basically instant
I shut down when I'm done for the day
>booting up your computer takes like 2 seconds
Booting and then opening all of my stuff to where it was when I left off takes a non-trivial amount of time, even on modern hardware. Sleeping / hibernating is simply more convenient and the power use is trivial.
>hibernation, ram is not being powered, the kernel registered a handler for when the keyboard will send an interrupt, processes' context is on disk
ACPI handles that, nothing to do with anything OS related
yep, the magic ACPI, keep dreaming.

This bad boy can hold 400 TV shows at 40 gigs each, 8,000 movies at 2 gigs each or a proportional mix of the two. With this thing I'm set for life but actually my first external hard drive stopped reading all the files after 10 years. So basically I'm all set for 10 years where it only took me a month of saving up to get it. I got mine for $300 off Amazon but because I applied a coupon I'm afraid I got a Black market counterfeit version because it makes cheapo sounds when it's operating and doesn't function properly when I pause and restart a video. Nonetheless I'm still extremely happy to have it since I simply copy any videos to a "Videos for Pausing" folder on my desktop before watching.
What do you all use for storage?
There were some sketchy FBI implying pictures in the product description so I saved those to caution myself not to get careless with interracial shit. Even cable TV is turning interracial which is why I want to download so many old torrents.

Before this I just use 18 but now youtube fuck everything again.

Sometimes this doesn't work, because that format is not availible so in that case I want to use 480p

While you're at it go take all the vaccines. Eat only seed oils, don't eat meat and don't forget to take a long walk off a short peer.

What's bad about vaccines? I rather be safe than sorry.

Seed oils are indeed crap some even say they are toxic because of the refining process and meat is part of a normal human diet.

I mean just look at how seed oils are refined: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edible_oil_refining

Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Butter from grass fed cows all the way.

cloud or dedicated server?
god I want to build tiny websites.. a lot of them, but
>dedicated servers are expensive as fuck
>clouds are cheap but in case if the app scale it might ruin your wallet

i can't decide.
Chances are that you can run your entire operation out of a $5/month VPS on some rando host. Sudden crushing success is the exception, not the rule.
Dedicated server is idiotic for websites. I've hosted a website with over 100,000 members on a VPS for years now.

With this huge GTK drama and libadwaita deliberately breaking pretty much every GTK project (https://github.com/xapp-project), why isn't functionality from wxwidgets utilized more? For example XFCE wasn't always GTK based and since it is programmed in C, porting it to Qt would be certainly difficult, with no good C bindings for Qt. Also Wxwidgets seems to be pretty mature project, so why is there no DE made in it?

BTW what's the usecase for CAPTCHA

SOVL. Though that's just themed old GNOME, when it didn't suck balls
There have been DEs in pretty much ever toolkit, but only Qt and GTK have been relevant: https://eylenburg.github.io/de_comparison.htm
And Motif in the 90s, I guess.
That's a nice comparison table! But why do you think it is that way?
>since it is programmed in C, porting it to Qt would be certainly difficult
what?? C++ compiler will be able to compile C
True, but Qt has no good C bindings and it's supposedly quite a pain in the ass

>Finally, Wallossek took a microscope to the RTX 4080 Gallardo's paste to see its individual properties. Sure enough, the paste is a cheaply made formula with a weird oily mixture that dries up in minutes if you wipe it with your finger. It also has particles of up to 16 µm, which Wallossek says is too big for a thermal paste application. Massive particles of aluminum oxide have been added to the paste to achieve higher thermal conductivity easily in the short term, but quickly reduce its effectiveness in the long term as the particles create enough space for the oily paste to run through and out of the particles altogether, causing the paste to dissolve quickly.


If you bought a 40-series card I suggest you repaste that shit ASAP

These fans aren't audible above the noise of my case/rads at 2250 (case at ~850 radsl fans at ~1050). Also you do see the temp is in the 75C range? My profile starts its ramp after 67C.

My curve is set for 1.01 at 2850, but what you're seeing is a high (not near max) overclock setting. The card can hold >3Ghz and pass 3dmark stress testing as such. I believe my 3dmark website records show 3030-3015Mhz.

>inb4 any comments
Card does 280watts at 62C at 1400 fan rpm on my normal settings.
Card stays cold enough for me to consider 1.01v acceptable.
VRAM stays below 70C even at +1625 and fully heatsoaked card.

I made a comment about the difference between MSRP-level cards and more expensive primo cards. This is the difference.
