I know next to nothing about fonts and font rendering.

Redpill me /g/. What is font rendering exactly? Why should I care?

I got a fresh Ubuntu installation, is there some settings to know regarding font rendering? Using XFCE if that matters.

it's typography for computers et al.

Macintosh wins in that regard

Recent versions of Freetype fucked up no-anti-aliasing mode. You can fix it by putting:
FREETYPE_PROPERTIES="truetype:interpreter-version=35

in /etc/environment

If you do use anti-aliasing this will make things look worse.

Ubuntu has the best font rendering out of all distros. I never have to change font rendering options on Ubuntu. Idk if XFCE renders fonts differently compared to Unity. I've never used XFCE because I have more than 256 MB of RAM.

Running a 4 year old laptop that only cost like $350 new, it came with Win8 but I hated it so I downgraded it to Win7. It's got an Intel B960 CPU and 8gb of RAM, along with a 720p screen. Would installing Win10 speed my laptop up a bit (I've heard it's less resource intensive) or have no effect? Just FYI I don't play games or anything on this laptop, also buying a new one is not an option at the moment because I'm in the middle of moving a couple of states away.

Personally, I saw better results from installing windows 10 on my laptop (lower specs than yours), so you may very well see an increase in speeds like I did.

>>61506496
might as well just install a light weight distro

How do i enable legacy captcha on the latest build?

So i just got a promotion at work, and I will be typing up 50 page reports every day. I wanted to get a mechanical keyboard that wouldn't bother my co-workers (so no cherry keys). A friend of mine suggested a Topre keyboard, which looks really nice, but it's a bit expensive. I was wondering what other options I had in terms of a cheap, quite, mechanical keyboard.

TLDR: I need a quite mechanical keyboard. What do?

Definitely when it comes to how people interact on newer social media platforms.

When I was a teenager I was part of that zeitgeist I guess, but now I can't believe the kind of stuff people willingly write on youtube etc. I feel confined to anonymous or semi-anonymous forums (chans, reddits, forums, irc).

I'm sick of phone number verifications.

Isn't there an app to give you a fake number for this shit?
6 posts and 1 images submitted.
>>
>>61505987
There's the Burner app. But even Burner requires a real phone number.
You could also get a Google voice number, but again, botnet.

If you really want to keep your phone number detached from online botnet services, get an actual burner. Will cost you about $15 and maybe $5-10 re-up every 90 days.

You can use every single operating system depending on how and what you are doing.
No security patches on Windows XP So Internet browsing is risky.

There's a new Raspberry Pi copy, but this time a drop in replacement, on kickstarter. It's powered by a s905X, typically used in the home video boxes, as it can handle 4k60fps by HDMI 2.0, and hardware decode h265 and vp9.

It's already founded, so i went for it.

It's probably not perfect for used the GPIOs, there's bound to be some limitations and small differences, but for the home piracy player and android TV machine as i intend to use it, it seems good.

Serious question here
My VPN provider told me they use the same IP for years because they can scan better what's going on and if someone is trying to mess up
Are they memeing me or the safest way is to a VPN provider change their server IP every day?
