Also, don't you just love it when your screen changes colour over the course of the day just to make sure that whatever you did doesn't quite look right in a few hours time? Ever tried playing a game with a "warm colour" setting on? Completely ruins the feel. "muh games" okay so let's talk about the pretentious artists who use macs? They'll appreciate not knowing if the colour they're planning is the actual colours.
But hey, you can turn it off so no biggie, right? Oh wait. News flash. Literally everything else has the same option, but just off by default. Wow apple, such innovation.

>>52378930 >screen that automatically adapts to environment >my lagdroid phone had that for years I'm not really seeing the innovation here, except you have to have gps and geolocation on ALL THE FUCKING TIME
>>52379929 It's not in fucking Windows, Linux or Android, unless you install third party apps/programmes. You could also already install this on your iPhone. >"b-but anon then you'd have to jailbreak" It's a 1-click procedure that, if you can't do properly, you shouldn't be on /g/ >wanting to hate Apple this much
>>52379968 Are you stupid? Basic color management facilities exist in a those OSes. Color management allows you to fucking change the white point just like those shitty third party apps. Now frick off dipshit
>>52379991 okay then the average GNU/Linux distribution, including the biggest and most popular like Linux Mint, Arch, Gentoo, Ubuntu (Kubuntu, Xubuntu, Kubuntu, Lubuntu, Ubuntu MATE, etc.), Debian, Linux Mint, Fedora, OpenSUSE, gNewSense, ElementaryOS, Mageia, CentOS, Slackware, and many, many, many more.
In fact, find me one GNU/Linux distro with f.lux or similar programme installed?
Oh, you can't? Okay, here's what we're gonna do, do a quick google search, just type in "how to improve reading comprehension when you're fucking retarded", and you're all set. When you're done with that, come back, and rethink your argument.
>>52379991 >Linux is just a kernel without third party programs. That's just one way to interpret it. The other way is that it's a kernel with bundled userland programs to enable comfortable user experience. Both are valid, despite what RMS says.
>>52380017 Yes, manually, which isn't the point of the software, it's that it happens automatically. I realise timers exist, but there is no dedicated programme within any of these operating systems capable of both timing but also timing according to when sunset happens where you live, precisely more or less.
You could also adjust the colours of your iPhone already, but that's not the point of this software, dipshit >again, if you can't jailbreak an iPhone, you're a newfag illiterate fucktard
>>52380018 Redshift is in the debian repositories and the package is maintained by the distro authors. There's literally no reason to ask for it to be preinstalled, or do you want every single package that's available preinstalled too? Have fun installing a distro for half a day.
>>52380050 But that's my point, you fucking idiot. You can choose on Linux whether or not to use it, Apple has now implemented that you can also choose, without jailbreaking, and they're getting shit why? By that logic, everyone who tries to put this on their devices are stealing, because they're doing the same thing?
Oh no, it's because you have no critical thinking, because all the time you've spent on /v/ has made you angry about how none of Apple's tech is "le gaymen equipment", that you have some need to hate on one of the most successful tech companies ever.
Basically you're retarded, and you hate Apple for no good reason. I'm not even a Macfag, I do have a MacBook but I mainly us my main laptop for everything (pic related), as it dualboots Arch and Windows which is pretty useful
>>52380082 Anon, your point was that it's not preinstalled in Linux or Windows and that it's somehow worse that way. I was merely telling you, how it's not worse to have it as a non preinstalled third-party application available in the repos.
>Two, "jailbreaking" your phone with nonfree chinkshit malware doesn't make it better. >he said, while sitting with his rooted Android with a custom ROM and ten thousand "tweaks" he downloaded to make his phone have better performance despite ever using it since he has no friends, unless it's for a /wg/ homescreen thread.
>>52380109 Not him but what do you mean by tweaks? Also you only install a custom rom and you're done with it, rooting is a buzzword for altering the original fw, you don't need to do that shit with a custom rom. Secondly he was complaining because everything you do to hack the iphone is with nonfree software but every single custom rom out there is opensource.
>>52380086 I'm not German, dipshit. The text from the Notepad is in Danish, if that's what you made think German (even though it's easy to see the difference between German and Danish??). I'm assuming you're American or just an illiterate >2016 >not speaking fluent English, and German as well as 2+ more languages >>52380087 >le archfag meme Arch is just kinda comfy on my laptop. Always fancied Fedora more to be honest. >>52380089 That's how I'm used to for using the old Gnome and XFCE back when I still went to school >>52380107 But OnePlus One is a chinkphone with a popular ROM that was initially community-made when it started >>52380130 >every single custom ROM out there is opensource not entirely true, but I get your point. By tweaks, I just mean, at least back when I used to root Android phones, many if not most custom ROMs didn't have that many cool tweaks and "settings". They had some, and it was cool and you could do what you wanted on it, but often you'd have to install third-party "tweaks" so to speak.
>>52378930 I just wanna say to the haters that f.lux on iphone is cozy as fuck senpaitachi. Im thinkin about doing redshift on my gnu/linux rig too. Might even get me some smartlights and program them to "flux". So cozy. Like living in a cozy candlelight era. Melatonin is a hell of a drug tbqh senpai
I think you will find that flux doesn't actually do anything. it just adds red to everything. Apple's innovative solution likely only adjusts on screen colours that are blue, and just adjusts the curve for that pixel, and doesn't just add red to everything
some people may like this. some people might not. if you use your device at home on your couch, chances are you'll like it. if you use it for work and/or like consistency, you might not.
either way, this was already available across all platforms. the fact apple has this in their OS's codebase now simply shows that they're favoring casual consumers over professionals because the "professionals will simply turn it off and who cares about a bit of bloat". this isn't necessarily a bad thing, it just is the way it is.
they do this all the time. do you know any professional user who seriously makes use of any feature introduced after 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard)? Launch Pad, the notification bar, tags in Finder, whatever other bullshit they've come up with? Professional users tend to have a terminal open, a text editor, an IDE, some kind of Adobe product (Photoshop/Illustrator/Indesign/...) or some kind of sound production tool maybe. oh, and of Finder and Mail. you need none of the new features for this, same for this redshift thing they're implementing; on the contrary, it tends to hinder you rather than anything else.
i don't even use the fucking dock. OS X at this point to me is 90% bloat. El Capitan takes away the right to write to /usr/, so i'm staying on yosemite. Apple is going down the road of "fuck the professionals", so i'm going down the road of "fuck apple".
This is actually one of my major gripes with desktop environments. I don't see any reason they wouldn't implement it. Sure, there's Redshift (which I'm happily using) but it's not particularly friendly for the casual user. And I want to switch to Wayland already!
>>52380700 I know better, but Apple is misleading the majority by saying they thought long, read some studies, and by explaining the concept as if it's something new. Apple drives on marketing, not on innovation.
>>52378930 The only valid reason for disliking this is the fact that Apple gave the f.lux guys the middle finger when they wanted to add this to the appstore, so it was forced to only run on Jailbroken phones.
Now they implement this feature themselves, essentially cucking f.lux.
>>52381675 >That would be a function of the compositor, which need not contain any window management logic eh yes, a compositor needs window manager logic. There are no external window managers with Wayland.
>>52380552 That's live display a CyanogenMod and OS feature, you probably own a Cyanogen OS phone like the OPO. So no, AOSP itself doesn't have the feature, it might be added later by oems if they want to.
>>52380151 >But OnePlus One is a chinkphone with a popular ROM that was initially community-made when it started Does it matter? It comes with the feature ootb, added by the oem, that was your point before, that nobody added that shit and that apple was supposedly the first, that isnt true, if anything Cyanogen is the first and apple copied them.
Thanks, OP. Because of this thread, I became aware of redshift. It is now installed and starts with X on my Parabola laptop. For future reference, however, you may wish to refer to the free counterpart to a proprietary program instead of the proprietary program itself. Had I not checked carefully, I may have been tempted to install f.lux on my machine instead of redshift. Others who are less observant may have been led to install this instead of the more respectful redshift program. I must also give thanks to the Parabola maintainers, whose active dedication to keeping nonfree software out of their repositories was the first hint I had that this program was not going to respect my freedoms. However, not everyone checks their distribution's repositories first and may wind up with something nonfree on their otherwise free systems, so please make sure to check the licenses of the software you mention in the future, thanks.
>>52386411 This would actually be more reason to recommend a free program instead a nonfree one. If you do, users who care about their freedom will be able to install it without worry, and the users who don't will still install it, because that a program is free is not usually a strike against the program for them. But if you recommend the proprietary program, users who care are, at worst, led to install the nonfree program without realising it isn't free or, at best, inconvenienced by having to search for a free replacement. In the two scenarios above, one case is better for all readers and the other is only good (arguably, as "good" as recommending nonfree software can be) for the users who don't care.
