What should I do now? might as well install kali lanax or some meme distro. What is left of Ubuntu now?
>>66034560>What is left of Ubuntu now?still the most popular linux distro for programming. any project that supports linux has been tested on ubuntu and has instructions for it. i still use their packages, on my laptop i have mint because the 18.04 update broke cinnamon, and on my desktop i just didn't update from 17.10.cinnamon is still my favorite DE and i use it on ubuntu. it crashes once in a while and the themes are a little bit fucked up because the cinnamon ubuntu packages aren't maintained like the real ones on mint. i would just use mint but have had annoyances trying to compile and install stuff meant for ubuntu because some of their packages/default configs are different i guess.budgie was the other DE that looked promising but ubuntu budgie was abysmal last time i tried it. i crashed it within like 10 seconds of installing by opening a settings menu and clicking on something. it worked well on solus but i don't want to be forced to use solus packages and default config
>>66034560Stay on 16.04.4, wait for 18.04.1.Do not upgrade, perform a fresh install.
>>66034560*buntu is moving towards an IPO anywaywhich means anyone still using it can enjoy frog in warming water style , ever increasing botnet from here on outtl;dr switch to anything else (debian)
>>66034560Just install a DE that isn't completely terrible, like Mate or Cinnamon. Problem solved.
>>66034560Wait for unity 8 :)

Anyone here ever feel "phantom vibrations" from your phone? I get them at work most often, it's weird feeling like you got a text when you didn't.
>>66033654I'd get that for awhile especially when a gf was texting me constantly. It kind of goes away if you get texted/calls less, or turn off vibe.Shows you the complexity of the subconscious, fascinating.
>>66033654its the nsa sending you silent mms messages containing 0day exploits
Ive read about this, turns out our brain recieves shitload of stimuli form the outside world and as we grow it learns to not pay attention to some weak vibrations, such as muscles twitching and shit like that. When we receive a lot of text messages brain again notices stuff that looks like phone vibrations
why hasnt vr taken off like smartphones did?
>>66032790I don't actually own a set yet, but I'm debating whither to build a gaming pc that could do VR or taking a (short)trip to Tokyo, got enough saved for one or the other right now.
>>66032883Demo it at a store or get the Gear VR or something if you have a Samsung phone, or google cardboard if you have something else. You often find them cheap on ebay
>>66029150It's a dumb gimmick that requires getting out of my chair, so it's at best an infrequent casual source of entertainment. It fails in this regard in many ways due to the high price of entry and complexity of configuring the 3D space with cameras, giving yourself an adequate length of cable, and wearing the cumbersome headset.For enthusiasts the current gen of headsets have less than desired display resolutions and no original titles for it have play times longer than 12 hours or mechanics more complex than what a toddler can comprehend.I think high resolution headsets have a lot of potential, but so long as developers keep pairing them with motion controls, they will never advance.

Is the whole $79k a year average for programmers a meme? Somehow I have a hard time believing it with how flooded the field is, here and elsewhere.
>>66033643OP is not talking about tech hubs, I think, and 79k is pretty decent for an *average* programmer in the rest of the US.>>66032911It's not a meme right now, but I think it will be. If you are a stundent in school right now you might be the last generation of programmers to get such a generous compensation. Programming is getting commoditized -- in 20 years it will be almost a blue collar job.
100k/yr here, 4 years experience, low cost city east coast. I work with lots of technologies but mainly backend Java. I work for a startup in the west coast.79k might be average if you work front end. That includes mobile and desktop app dev. Maybe those guys bring the average down.
>>66032911>Is the whole $79k a year average for programmers a meme? Somehow I have a hard time believing it with how flooded the field is, here and elsewhere.$79k average in the US is very low, unless you're talking entry level only.
it's $79k where a 1-bedroom apartment costs $3000/mo, but that still gives you plenty for investing

Which laptop do you have? Are you satisfied with it? What OS is it running? Is there any laptop you would love to buy in the future?I'm still using my old Asus S56CM currently. I bought it 7 or 8 years ago, I can't remember well. It had decent specs then (i7 3550U, 8 GB RAM, 700 GB HDD + 20 GB SSD, Nvidia GT 635 M) then it died when I upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 8.1, but I was able to revive it after installing Xubuntu on it. It's a good laptop but it's heavy and big, so I'm looking for a lighter and smaller laptop to run Xubuntu on, which I can carry around easily. I'm torn between an Acer Swift 3 (14" , 256 GB SSD, 8 GB RAM, full HD LCD screen, i3 7130U) for 599€ and a Lenovo Thinkpad 13 (13,3" , 180 GB SSD, 4GB, full HD IPS screen, i3 7100U) for 580-700€ (price has been fluctuating a lot recently). The Thinkpad has inferior specs, but it's lighter, smaller and arguably more robust, also Linux could work better on it, since a few Acer users have reported some bugs and issues when running Linux.
