The eternal chase for the lowest common denominator to increase the market segment is a faulty idea, since it presumes that the stupidity isolating that market segment from your product is rational and constant. The reality is that most people will self-adjust their research habits or intellect to match the increasing ease-of-use every time. The constant self-adjustment means that earlier technology becomes increasingly opaque with time, since the end user has become used to constant abstraction and simplification.
>Zoomers can't use Google
With SEO shit, most people can't really use Google or other search engines anymore. There was a brief period before ads became more consolidated into companies like Google, where things like search engines were useful. You may honestly be better served with researching in a library now, at least the Dewey decimal system doesn't index based on ads.

The organic popularity of """AI""" is limited to a few narrow domains. The rest is marketing brainwash.

"Memory safety" in programming languages. This is not a feature which actually exists. Rust for example doesn't have memory safety, it has memory safety theater.

To do anything interesting in Rust, you have to use unsafe blocks (or a crate someone else made which uses unsafe blocks). So "memory safety" in Rust is basically the equivalent of putting a comment around code which may have memory safety bugs. You didn't fix any bugs or potential bugs or even reduce the number of potential bugs, you just labeled that if there are memory safety bugs, they occur in that specific area of the code.

The concept of memory safety is interesting, but currently has no real implementation, regardless of Rustacean cope/seethe on the topic.
>>
>>99208125
It's much easier to be extremely careful with a small amount of unsafe blocks rather than your whole codebase.
>>
>>99208054
>If you're talking about companies slapping AI™ on everything
That is what I'm talking about and it's exactly the same thing with """AR""". The futurist marketing hype for it revolves around you wearing your Corporate Reality goggles all day, every day, for some marginal gains in convenience.

>AI models are genuinely getting traction in general, I know some absolute normalfags that use chatgpt regularly.
ChatGPT is the only useful consumer-grade AI product so far. You can actually use it to get something done in 2 minutes that would take you 20 otherwise. Meanwhile the hype surrounding it is meant to convince you that you need to inject """AI""" into every area of your life and every product you use.

/alt/ - Arch Linux Thread

This isn't a general, it's a thread! It's a thread about Arch Linux and distributions based on Arch Linux!

In this thread we discuss the joys and miseries of using the world's best Linux distribution. What do you like about Arch, what do you hate about it? What environment do you use? What does your rice look like? Need help with Arch Linux? Having trouble getting it installed? Maybe someone will be able to answer your question here.

>For the foreseeable future we will still support the use of dbus-daemon, the previous implementation. Pacman will ask you whether to install dbus-broker-units or dbus-daemon-units. We recommend picking the default.

Couldn't really find any "huge" features over plasma 5. Some places like settings have rearranging.

- Firefox seems to ignore my mouse randomly
- Session takes a long time (30secs) to actually launch the desktop (panel etc.).

LxQT becomes lighter only in a distro that forces you into QT modules loaded onto memory anyway

If you dont use QT 5, and then put in LXQT it is definitely much larger memory footprint from then on, when compared to plain X.org + IceWM and some mandatory KDE and Gnome libraries on the background and no QT at all (most of user interface would be GTK 2 and GTK 3, you're internet browser would be GTK 2 probably, in ideal case if it works)

with that kind of setup you get into 500MB memory foot print, with QT5 involved its impossible to go lower than 1000MB

On second thought, what you should've done is just do it. You've apparently at least done some base research and have the confidence to do it.
As it is now, everyone is questioning your motivations/intelligence/sexuality. Had you already done it and randomly exhibited it in some hardware thread, then people would then react with "neat project, bro." (Or "gay.")
If you tried and failed, then you can quietly sweep it under the rug, or start a thread describing your project and seeking help. Since you would've already had some of the work laid out, people might take it more seriously and give suggestions. (Or, "gay.")

Is it better for USB flash drive and/or microsd card health for it to be constantly connected to computer or just plugging it in maybe once a week or something?
I heard its bad to leave them unconnected for very long time.
But isnt plugging them in and out daily/weekly also bad. What if i keep it in the usb permanently but only use it rarely?

I have my music collection on usb stick so would it be bad if to listen music from it even if i dont write anything to it?

>Is keep a zettelkasten system?
I'm sure you can use it as one, it doesn't take much. But obviously not all centralized databases of notes are zettelkasten systems, linking may not be the foundation but it's essential, so is "atomization" of concepts etc. But these follow from each other. Once you have a central database with easy access to different notes you want to refer to other notes easily, and once you can do that efficiently you want your notes to be about self-contained concepts so that they can be "referred to" more easily, and once you can do that you want to keep track of backlinks etc.
