So, I'm finally tired of being a slave of windows and I want to get into linux. I really love KDE Plasma but it is just a DE from what I could understand, and I must choose a distro before. What's the best distro for someone who can't even use git? I don't want any botnet crap btw
8 posts omitted.
>>680 I had linux mint debian edition back when it was still offered, went to normal linux mint, got fed up with not being in the mainline distro packages so went to devuan because of the anti-systemd memes, then discovered you could hold back and purge systemd packages and use init instead on debian, which is what I am using recently. Learned a lot by the way.
>>680 If you want something that just works Kubuntu is nice. However switching to Arch on my main machine when I was a newbie taught me so much. Even if you switch back you will just know so much more than if you stuck with Ubuntu.

>>680 Gonna recommend Fedora here. It's what Linus Torvalds uses and he invented the Linux kernel.
>>680 For new comers I always recommend Pop_Os. It's pretty much Ubuntu with a bit more polish. It comes with your blobby drivers preinstalled so no need to tweak anything and has decent battery optimizations for laptops. Obviously, systemd and proprietary nvidia drivers means it's backdoored, but that's not something new user should worry about right away
I use Manjaro and I don't know shit about linux. They also actually help you if you don't know how to do shit and they don't have massive egos like just because linux you have to know everything about it.

I Want to Host an Infringing Website Anonymous 07/09/2020 (Thu) 09:33:35 No. 1167 [Reply] [Last]
What's the best way to go about doing this and keeping it as secure and as invisible as possible. I want to make sure it's not going to get taken down or sued because people don't like that I have copyrighted material hosted.

>>1158 >I'm not surprised by the concerns you listed above. I made a mistake. I thought you were serious. but turns out you are someone I would shun in real life.
>>1160 I see you have found a partner already, or you are going to do it yourself. You can't even justify your own plan, and you expect serious people to work with you. If I wasn't serious, I would had just asked to be paid upfront and vanish after settjng it up. The only one not serious is you, chink English teacher.
>>1159 .>tripfagging People who ask don't usually lurk. When everyone can make a tripcode, authority has to be proved. The site can indicate trusted trips. At that point, may as well go to stackexchange or reddit. >old posts, small user base Most learners are teenagers or underages, They are known for impulsive behaviors. Raids can easily be triggered and executed against the site. I have been thinking about a dictatorship tech ib. All shills and fags will be banned. Of course users will disagree with me, but they can use another site. Thoughts?

>>613 Faggot the reason they made them a thing was because they break easier. It's a planned obsolesce thing. It's more waste. You can't trust these things for cold storage like other storage devices. Bakas.

Windows vs Linux Anonymous 02/01/2020 (Sat) 10:15:05 No. 718 [Reply] [Last]
Base up, W10 is superior. Easier, more efficient, better support and compatibility, less hassle. But for the die hards, why is Linux better to you?
21 posts and 2 images omitted.
op is a fagget. the entire net runs on linux.the milky way runs on unix. everybody knows that.

>>718 I used to run Wingblows 8 which was okay-ish early on but later would update rape me, constantly crash, and lag from all the shitty spyware that I kept uninstalling but the OS would reinstall shit on boot like Skype and MSM. I'm not the most tech savy guy just competent enough to not be borderline retarded and Jewbuntu hasn't a hiccup once on any of my computers so far, infact it actually runs some of my games even better than Wingblows. I like the fact that if I delete a shitty bloatware program it stays deleted.\ Also Bill Gates is a glow in the dark globalist nigger. >>869 Based and practical user pilled.
apples and oranges, linux is objectively superior in most metrics, there are only a handful of applications that don't run on linux and then Windows is best for gaming, once those gaps close though there will be little reason for users to use Windows
Easier makes it so any chimp can use it. Only chads are smart enough to use Linux.
Is Mint a good starting OS? I want to blow outta Winblows. It used to be based, but Gates has now become a jew.
