My monitor is set to 1920x1080.... but every time I go to a website I need to adjust the font sizes larger to be able to read anything. It's a 19" monitor if that matters.

Is there a monitor you recommend for people that sit back away from the desk casually.. and be able to read the monitor clearly.

I feel kinda goofy thinking that I might need to set this monitor 1024x768 oldschool.. or 640x480?

I wear glasses.. and its a new prescription, before you shitpost that. Go ahead roast me.. but I need some advice on a good monitor for bad eyes.
Heres a 4 chan stencil for your 2 cents.

Just zoom in on the website
I been doing that for so long.
if you had an OS which supported proper DPI scaling you could adjust that and still be in your monitor's native resolution.

Archfag here, I'm looking for some new distro to install on my Dingpad.
I've been thinking about these:

>Debian sid
sounds great but packages are outdated even on sid, apt sucks also

I tried minimal installation and I like it BUT muh systemd and it's probably botnet, prove me wrong

no time for compilation, no money for higher bills since Gentoomachines are not so environment-friendly

literally bloat, KDE sucks even more than GNOME because it needs much configuration and is heavy

>Void Linux
probably best alternative but still is not so much people there, lacks of packages, hard to install since its wiki sucks

Is there alternative?
PS I'm autist.

>Mint XFCE
Cinnamon mint instead
The great things with Arch are the AUR to fit your every need and a constant mission to keep packages as vanilla as possible, unlike Debian.
But Debian packaging is finer-grained, I mean, you can install headers and debugging symbols separately, which makes better indicated if you plan to develop for Linux and stick a stable set of software versions.
Read: Arch is comfier to use, Debian (and its derivatives) is better to market.

How is this an issue with keepass? Go for the maximum length password in generation, and you should be covered.

Into the thrash it goes

In 20 years, all that came from Linux desktop developers was the constant reinvention of the (broken) wheel: 10 half-baked desktop environments, 50 barely working music players etc.

But there's some glimpse of light at the end of the tunnel, and it comes from the oldest civilization in the world.

Take this project as an example. This man single-handedly is creating something that the collective efforts of hundreds of Westerners failed to produce: a file manager as good as the Windows File Explorer: https://github.com/teejee2008/polo#polo-file-manager

What is the best browser, file manager, image viewer etc. that looks good on i3?

Window managers don't influence the looks of programs. It's the GUI toolkits that do.
Of course you don't know that, because you're a meme parroting and absorbing idiot.
i know that, i just want some minimalistic looking programs that will blend in nicely to wm without borders
asking /g/ was a mistake
>best browser
that's up to you
>file manager
ranger and thunar
>image viewer

Boring. KYS
Simply by running this OS you belong to some elite. First, you run an OS which has a fraction of overall usage. Second, unless you were taught how to use it by a friend, you are a good reader, searching for clues in the Internet.

I have a few gripes with RPM distros in general but honestly, Anaconda is the best installer ever made for an operating system.
>Anaconda is the best installer ever made for an operating system.
I actually enjoy customizing my partitioning.
I refuse to use it because it is named fedora and the website has some uggo tranny on the front page.

Also fuck gnome and everything gnome stands for. The devs from their company are a bunch of cunts, I can personally vouch for this having met a few of them at a convention.

I have literally 0 experience with Linux and I really want to try it out. I have no idea where to start or how to start. I really like the whole stigma surrounding it and I think it will be a great daily driver once I get into. Can someone recommend me proper guides or at least point me in the right direction? I am not sure if this is the proper general to post in, but your help will be greatly appreciated.

download xubuntu iso
download rufus
write iso to usb stick with rufus
boot linux

you learn it as you go even if you are illiterate.
If you cant search for it, you need it to be simple.
I would recommend fedora or ubuntu
