Will this make me a rich man?

Did I make a mistake /g/?
Why would userland applications have dependencies and ties to particular init systems? This seems like a bad idea, no matter how you slice it. I'm mainly talking about DEs that don't even work without systemd.

Nah, just let them suffer
In what way does an alternative means of manipulating a cursor qualify as placebo? It's convenient, which is a subjective term. It's right in between your home row, where you hands are, anyways. What about that is a lie? My opinion?
Welcome to /lgbt/ Libreboot is the Greatest BIOS Thread!
Beginners feel free to ask questions!
More info about the project:
Flashing the X60 internally (easy)
Flashing the X200/T400 externally (advanced)
So /g/ why haven't you installed the only BIOS that actually respects your freedom, privacy, and human rights by using no proprietary firmware and disables the Intel (NSA backdoor) ME?
>inb4 the dev is a tranny and drama queen
That's a red herring and has no bearing on the project
The dispute with GNU was resolved several months ago
>inb4 no compatible system
You can literally get a ThinkPad X200 for $50 on ebay
>inb4 no beaglebone/pi for external flashing
You can get an X60 for internal flashing or use a Libreboot flashing service (about $50) on ebay for X200/T400
>inb4 that hardware is ancient
An X200 will pretty much do anything besides "muh gaymin" plus there are some descent mobo's that support Libreboot for an Intel or AMD desktop system (see below)
Server boards: Asus KFSN4-DRE and Asus KGPE-D16
Desktop boards: Asus KCMA-D8, Intel D510MO, Gigabyte GA-G41M-ES2L, and Apple iMac 5,2

All of you guys who use Linux are posting from virtual machines, right? There's no way someone would install Linux on their desktop and use it as a daily driver?...

if an job interviewer tells me that they're "interviewing other candidates" is that basically saying i fucked up?
i applied for a entry level web-dev job. interviewed today, thought it was going great, and then they told me that they're interviewing other people until friday. feels like a cheap way to say i wasnt picked
I have two questions about Amazon.
1. I, for the first time, bought a kindle book on amazon instead of the hardcover, because i needed the book right away and couldnt wait. I noticed that the only way to pay for it was through One Click (R) payment.
It doesn't tell me HOW exactly i am paying for it. Credit card? debit card? i have more than one payment method on my amazon account.
2. i downloaded Amazon Kindle on my phone, and it also did this weird Instant Apps installation. i looked it up and it says Instant Apps can run apps on my phone without installing them. But i installed the Kindle viewer, so wtf is it running on my phone without my permission?
Anybody knows solid USB recovery tool? I have tried testdisk already but it doesn't work. If anybody knows what could solve this I would be very grateful.
>Chromebooks are portable,sleek and have alright screens/specs for the price
>Normal laptops have shit specs/poor screens and are heavy
>always have at least 128gb SSD
Just fuck my shit up. How hard is to stick a alright processor and screen into a small laptop for 499? For love of my life I dont get why companies produce mammoths instead of small products with good specs
