What does /g/ think about Elementary OS? Good for beginners, or just a meme?
I guess you could say it's alright for beginners. They're still going to have trouble understanding how to install software and why they can't get everything they want. Because of that it's only "good" if the beginner only needs what comes pre-installed.
In a more technical sense it's a meme. It's just shitty outdated macBuntu. It has no reason to exist other than to stroke the egos of the money-grubbing distributors behind it. I can't even bring myself to describe their contribution as "development."
I just introduced someone to linux because they diddn't like windows 10 which was forcefully installed on the computer while she was at work (Thanks microshit). She's pretty fucking stupid so I just decided to throw linux mint at her that's what she wanted to try out. After hours of getting their shitty 32 bit laptop to run linux mint because I had to actually figure out what she was looking at by her just stupidly describing what her bios screen looks like to get it prepped to even run the iso from a usb drive. She eventually installed it and loved it but come a day later she is upset because she can't "Play muh games" Even though I clearly stated that games that worked on windows only will not work on linux beforehand. I'm fucking angry and I feel like I wasted my time.
Are there any good alternatives to this or is it actually good?
I wanna learn PHP in depth.
I have a intermediate level but I would like to read a book that can teach me the "under the hood" of the language.
I was thinking on read this book but I feel that it will be general shit.
I've been having a Machine Check Exception for 3 days now. It's incredibly aggravating. PC only works in safe mode. BSOD within seconds of signing into normal Windows. PC is also not recognizing my wireless card, so there's no internet access.
I've unplugged all sub devices, disabled all startup software, removed the wireless card, all to no avail. I've tried running command prompt memory test, but it shows results upon signin after the restart. I can't view them because Windows immediately BSOD. I have to shift + restart to open the troubleshooter, boot options > restart and open safe mode. The results don't show after that process of several restarts.
How the hell do you diagnose this?
All help will be appreciated.
What are some of the best small form factor cases? Doesn't matter the actual form factor of the mobo, but the case should still be small.
I've been trying to find things that are as thin as possible, but have an x99 so not going mitx. I can sell my mobo (Rampage V extreme) and psu to get a SFX.
I like the Horizontal designs, The cubes just seem large since it limits me to ITX (only 1 for the X99) or MATX which turns out to be pretty wide and not exactly smaller.
I like the idea of the Core G3 though I don't care for clear sides too much.
ive got both win7 and xubuntu on this machine, and the sound quality on them is totally different. windows doesnt sound bad or anything, but music sounds much better on ubuntu. why is that? its not just me right?
though despite how nice it sounds, its a buggy ass sound system that constantly crashes and has to be reconfigured, at least on my machine.
its not a huge problem for me. the problem is that anytime i boot back into windows to play some games, i have to delete the entire configuration and re-do it. takes about 5 minutes but it does get annoying.
ive looked all around for solutions and apparently this is a common problem, at least on ubuntu.
anyway, the original question: its not just me right? does the sound quality seem better to you?
new gpu what do? buy 1070 or 580 or wait for vega (lol)? 1070 would be 450 yurops, 580 400 yurops, fucking miner cunt niggers
What's the best checkers bot?

Truly a meme OS
How did you download an entire multi-billion dollar company?
Try just downloading their drivers.
are you even trying?
there's a fucking GUI
So, /g/, do you touch type?
What WPM can you achieve?
And more importantly, do you think it's important for software development?
I myself can achieve 100+WPM, however, I don't fully touch type, e.g. I use my ring finger for backspace and two different fingers for the same row.
Yeah, I'd say comfort is much more important than raw WPM, as its not a bottleneck most of the times and so saving your wrists doing it the way it hurts less is better.
pic related, it'sgtypist
130 on average, 140 after a few minutes to get "warmed up"
Not really, no. Unless you type very, very slow (hunt and peck) you're going to be stopping to think about what to type next all the time. Unless you're just typing out stuff from memory, typing speed is largely irrelevant.
Also touch typing has nothing to do with what fingers you use, it just means you type without having to look down at your keyboard to find the key you want to strike.
What does /g/ prefer?
I'm very uneasy with OnePlus in general. They're nothing of what they set out to be and their head-in-the-sand approach to user feedback is sad. I'd rather be disappointed by Google at least.
my LG K20 does the job just fine for me. I'd rather not drop half a fortune on a pretty phone, it's nice and all but a bit of a waste and with Jewgle you're cucked with no MicroSD slot and eventual deprecation due to lack of support over the years
A little backstory.

Why am I so shit at Java development. I couldn't even make a Blackjack game as an assignment for last year. How can I get better at this shit?
i don't understand how you can't make blackjack after 3 years of experience. i'm not great at programming either but i can do stuff like that pretty easily if given enough time. Sounds like you're a brainlet
Another most of your day of your sad, miserable life wasted on /g/ instead of doing something productive, creative or learning something /g/-related.....
