Windows 10 is coming up on 2 years old and there isn't a single fucking Google app in the entire Windows Store.
Google obviously wants to murder Windows as an OS.
Google CAN murder Windows if they integrate Windows emulation well into a much heftier version of Chrome OS that does not depend heavily on the Internet to function.
I'm starting Computer Science this fall, what kind of computer should I get? Should I get a Mac or PC? I'm mostly used to Mac but maybe PC is more ubiquitous in CS?
>maybe PC is more ubiquitous in CS?
Which linux distro would you recommend to a cute girl that has only used Windows?
Why not a netbook + butterfly keyboard?
The butterfly keyboard was very complex, required very tight manufacturing standards and was really only relevant in the context of a square laptop (4:3 aspect ratio). By the time you're making a widescreen laptop it become pointless.
Now, you might ask, what if I wanted to make a netbook based on the iPad's 4:3, 2048x1536 that is common, high-quality and relatively cheap? Then you'd be better off doing something like the IBM S30, which requires no extra complexity and allows you to leverage other cheap, commodity parts.

Best free Anti-virus, better than AVG and MalwareBytes?
By indie game developers I don't mean all of them. There are some great guys like the people behind games like Owlboy or Undertale that are absolutely good guys and good at doing their job.
But there is a big, big part of both successful and, even more, unsuccessful "gamedevXD"s that really should be banned from using a PC.
I was browsing /r/gamedev lately and the amount of retardedness astonished me. Even your stereotypical pajeets are better than those guys, seriously.
There's people claiming that everything more optimized or modular than cowboy coding is overkill, that planning good algorithms instead of just randomly slapping your hands on the keyboard until it "works" is stupid because "it takes too much time", and cherrypie, that "Java is almost as fast as C++ if used properly".
I mean, I know that 99.999999999% of people browsing such subreddits are fags who won't get anywhere with their shitty code, but I was very impressed to see how much compSci ignorance and arrogance mixed there is in those communities compared to basically every other technology field.
Oh yeah I forgot, there are also those guys who say "why do you want to know which technique of doing this is faster? Just do a benchmark!", ignoring basically all of the reasons why algorithm analysis exists (for my friend Tom that browses here who doesn't know: not all PCs have the same exact hardware configuration and while some performance gap could be imperceptible to the point of being impossible to catch on my PC, it could weigh a lot more on another user's less performing one, and even like this, one single execution of a technique on a simple example level doesn't really mirror how things go when there are a lot of players).
So guys, don't study why quicksort is better than bubble sort, just do a 5 elements array and sort them with both, you'll see which one's faster XD
(Fun fact: bubble sort will win)
Is anyone here an actual freetard?

>no jewish tricks
>can do everything but play gaymes
Why in the fuck are you still being subservient to the NSA and all the other botnets? Do you have any self respect? What is your excuse to not being completely free (as in freedom) /g/?
>Is anyone here an actual freetard?
No not completely yet, but I like the concept.
Windows 8-10, and the lack of enjoyable new game releases is making the transition to full freetard easier for me now though.
Yes I'm a freetard. I do most of my computing on either my x60 with libreboot or modified dell optiplex (better Mobo thats libreboot compatible).
>no jewish tricks
are you aware stallman is jewish
how realistically will take me to self teach myself a CS bachelors?
I'm not going to comprehend what indecipherable mumble of autism speak you just attempted to communicate with, so here's some CS for you.

What DE do I use if I like KDE but hate how fucking buggy it is?
lxqt literally uses the same theme layout and color schemes but with half the ram and no glitches, i'd try it if you like kde's aesthetic.

Daily reminder that a 14 year old Power Mac G5's are better computers than modern and gay PCs.

Am I going to make it or am I too stupid for this?
Some hipster starbucks drinking faggot numale walked up to me with his stupid smug smile on his face and asked what I was programming.
Well I was programming a library for Linux in C. I gave him a brief description about it and told him it's written in C. Now this faggot was telling me I should rewrite it in Rust because it's safer, blah blah, better than C and C++, blah blah, nigger faggot kept talking about this shit like Mozilla stuck their cock up his ass and now he's spewing this shit out of his mouth. So I had enough of this mac faggot and told him I'm not rewriting shit and told his faggot ass to fuck off.
Personal/portable music player thread /pmp/
What up /pmp/'s, so we've been having these threads for a while now and I noticed some of you prefer it to be called /dap/ since it's more of a catch-all. Is a vote on this needed or are you guys okay with the name as is?
