Is there any reason for more powerful consumer hardware in current year, other than shitty, bloated software and apps?
Hey /g/. I accidentally hit my computer with a drumstick and it looks like this. Is there anyway i can fix it without going to a store? Audio still works but I can't really see anything. Please help.

Not sure but I remember the FreeBSD people did something but abandoned it short thereafter.
If you're a lucky guy that can disable the nvidia GPU at BIOS level then you should be golden using the Intel with any BSD.
On my laptop, where I can't completely disable the dGPU I'm finding myself comfortable with Linux still, but on servers and network equipment I run BSD only

Got 5TB of storage in pic related from University.
For some reason I'm super afraid that the Uni's IT team will be able to see my shit. Am I autistic or is this a real concern?

Since physical media is dead (not dying, it is dead. It's not relevant except to hoarders), why do they still sell movies and games on disc, when digital is so much more convenient? Seems like stores would be rid of such an obsolete thing, it'd be like selling Betamax tapes in 2010.
* 50GB is a lot to download.
* Older generations might not be familiar with digital collections and just keep piling discs.
* Some games don't even have the game on the disc. Just a cereal and a steam installer. I'm guessing publishers just do that for more publicity.
is it as bad as /g/ says it is? What distro do you guys use?
Not from speedtest.net
It is highly unreliable especially if you are not in the US or EU countries. Only few big companies have their data servers in or near 2nd/3rd world countries. So while it will be faster to access servers from those companies, same connection line can take ages if websites or companies don't have their localized servers near you.
Here is my speedtest. I download a random movie from tpb. My isp promise 20Mbps and peek speed is 20Mbps while the average is 1.8Mbps.
How is Doge in any way related to FireFox v57 release? I don't get it.

You forgot the folder full of shemale porn. Try better bait next time, faggot.
What do you guys think is a good distro that gets frequent updates and doesn't have systemd switching from Ubuntu MATE?
be honest /g/, was technology a mistake?
Why do normies hate bezel on their phones so much?
