Whats the best free virus software?

Why do you use it?
Daily reminder that stallman is a faggot. It's called Linux, not gnu Linux.
gnu is nothing more than stealing ideas from UNIX and rewrite them in a faggot way.
>Given GNU's desire to replicate Unix, I think Bison was inevitable. I am bemused that some GNU people are so irritated that GNU's contribution to Linux is not recognized, but yet they have failed to recognize their debt to those of us who worked on Unix...
>Stephen C. Johnson (Creator of YACC, Lint etc).
Does the opposite of this exist?
Autistic summerfag looking to become less tech illiterate. Got my Thinkpad, Windows 7, and learning python. Where do I go from here?
If you want help:

>State the budget for your build (and country if not the USA)
>List games/software you use often, as well as your monitor resolution + refresh rate
>Clarify your goal for build improvements: lower price or improved specs?

>R3 1200 - Budget builds (<$500)
>R3 1300x - Good stop-gap between the 1500x and the 1200, only get a 1400 if you absolutely need multithreading
>R5 1500x - Good but up to 1600 if you can
>R5 1600 - Best value for higher fps gaming / mixed usage; 1600x if you want higher stock clocks
>i7 7700k - Only for 144hz
>R7/Used Xeon/Threadripper - Compute/Multitask/VM/mixed use; Not for just gaming

ALWAYS LOOK AT PRODUCT REVIEWS!
Always consider an SSD. Try buying a large SSD for what you'd pay for your SSD+HDD combined, and add a HDD later
NVMe SSDs aren't for a faster OS boot, they're for productivity/scratch disk/VMs. NVMe and M.2 are not the same thing, M.2 is a form factor.
The Ryzen lineup comes with surprisingly good stock coolers. consider using them over any <$30 cooler.
I bought a single stick of RAM 16 GB that runs @ 2400 Mhz.
Should I return it and get something else? I have an ASUS Prime B350-Plus and a Ryzen 5 1600. What RAM should I get? Is the CMK16GX4M2B3000C15 good?
Threadly reminder that you have to be mentally retarded to buy a dual core desktop CPU in 2017 and if your budget is really that low then just buy a used Xeon workstation and put a SSD in.
If Moore's law is dead then does that mean we will never ever see 100000x performance gains again?
Which Linux distro is your favorite and what separates it from the other distros?
I'd just like to interject for moment. What you're referring to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I've recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX.
Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called Linux, and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project.
There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use. Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine's resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called Linux distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux!
Hey /g/, first time poster here.
I'm looking for a specific kind of laptop.
Basically an ultra-simple notebook whose sole use is to work on one document (a book I'm writing that is structured hierarchically, mostly just plain text). I also need USB or another way to occasionally transfer data in/out of the PC, and a way to encrypt the document. Nothing else. I will not be browsing the web, listening to audio, watching videos, playing physical media etc.
Here are my goals, in order:
- Lightweight and portable, since I will be traveling extensively with it
- Screen big enough to compose a document with an outline pane on the left and composition pane on the right.
- Good battery life
- Fast boot
- Fingerprint authentication would be kinda cool, but not essential.
I want to achieve the above by eliminating anything that isn't absolutely necessary.
What I DON'T need:
>Any networking technology, not even a network card (but hmm, I need a way to get MS Word on there initially)
>Other things I won't be using, like hard drive space beyond several GB, a lot of RAM, webcam, etc.
>I don't even need the OS to have a desktop environment, as long as I can easily launch my word processing application from the command line.
I prefer to use MS Word on Windows but I am open to Linux since I could use KeepNote or CherryTree, which also would allow me to compose a large, hierarchical document. I do not want to use a plain text editor since I need to easily navigate & manage the document hierarchy.
>The RAM in my PC build is the most expensive part, even more expensive than the CPU and GPU
Will the prices ever come down or are we fucked?
just upgraded, wanted to show off/gauge /g/'s internet speeds
I have 240/24 but currently no compatible NICs, upgrading wireless card soon
Hey /g/ i was wondering why the Amiga failed
it was one of the strongest pc's ever created and was used by nasa till 2006l. i personally love the amiga and am just looking for info on it
Can people find my ip address from my posts or even find everything else I post with it?
