Current state of Linux is absolutely deplorable
>Ubuntu is unusable, Unity in limbo, pointless to use Unity right now
>Arch linux KDE completely broken and Dbus fails after X amount of time forcing you to reboot
>No other popular distrobution that has a sensible default DE/Layout
>Ton of random obscure rinky dink bullshit distros NO ONE ever uses
What linux distrobution do I use.
I just want to use my PC and be comfy.
I want to learn C++ but I'm having trouble breaking away from C#. tips for learning C++?
Let's get a good ol fashion screenfetch and neofetch thread going
Threadly reminder Nvidia has this waiting in the wings
Probably waiting for yields and enough product to launch and soon we'll get this.
Vega will be BTFO
>DOUBLE-PRECISION 7 TeraFLOPS
>SINGLE-PRECISION 14 TeraFLOPS
>CAPACITY 16 GB HBM2
>BANDWIDTH 900 GB/s
thats double the bandwidth of vega shit
>POWER Max Consumption 250 WATTS
AMD are fucking finished, their nearest card is the Vega Frontier that uses fucking 400watts and requires a 1kw psu and its only 13.x teraflop
Nvidia could probably push the Volta to 15tera flop easy with OC'ing
not gonna make it my main laptop. just wanna play around with linux and have an extra laptop to bring around if i dont wanna risk having my main one broken.
also where should I buy a used thinkpad?
Craigslist amazon or ebay?
Thanks in advance.
Apple makes the best products.
Imagine an internet without Jan Brandt, one where it never got oversaturated with normies in 1993. Do you like what you see?
never owned a PC that used AOL, wouldn't know.
I was offline until DSL. confused my friends using internet explorer ('that thing that never worked' on their computers) and getting crazy fast download speeds, good times.
So now that bandcamp has been confirmed for absolute shit beyond a doubt, where do you get your music? Just as SJWFox was dropped by all sane people recently, now what do we do with the digital music distribution scene?
Downloading (music) is technology.
I have hundreds of dollars of games on my old Steam account. I can't get back into it at all because it's been stolen by Taiwanese hackers.
The reason I can't get back into it is because they got into my Steam through my Yahoo when Yahoo got hacked last year. My Steam account has been banned multiple times since the hackers took it using it illegally, and I can't get back into it although it's clearly being used by hackers because Yahoo is shit.

Anyone else fall for the 1440 meme.
Did I make a mistake?
4K IPS at 25-28 inch seem to all be 400+
1440 was the right choice in 2010-2011 for those who were thinking ahead, now it's a stopgap for 2160 monitors to drop in price / increase perf while also waiting on GPUs capable enough for muh gaymes. If you're forward thinking and have enough money to spend, you can get a 2160 monitor now though. In either case 1440 is still degrees of magnitude better than 1080. 1080 is the new 768 and has been since 2014 - 2015.

NVIDIA GIMPS TITAN CARDS BY 300% JUST TO SELL QUADRO CARDS
Holy shit man, AMD forced them to do something to fight Vega FE. Why would a company ever buy from an anti-consumer GPU maker like nvidia ever again if they're going to withhold 300% performance to get more money.
PSA: KDE is broken on Arch Linux. Even with a complete default install, after a random amount of time Dbus server will essentially break, you cant open any programs until reboot/relog.
Exact error message: "Session bus not found\nTo circumvent this problem try the following command (with Linux and bash)\nexport $(dbus-launch)"
Time to install Gnome?
Jus trying to save people some time.
