Could you recommend me a distro that is neither easy nor hard to use? I want to learn more about linux but I'm not keen on manually mounting my external hard drive.
Is it necessary to spend a lot of time on C before learning C++?
Yes, because learning C++ without learning C leads to tons of bad habits and a very incomplete picture of how C works.
Think of C++ as a giant framework of abstractions that ALMOST KINDA is backwards compatible with C but not really.
It's much easier to see what C is doing, you can very clearly see where all the processor cycles go.
C++ does tons of sneaky shit and makes debugging a pain.
C++ actually started as a preprocessor for C called Cfront that spat out compliant C code.
Is this the only good browser for smart phones?
What other options do I have which are equally fast?
Don't be cucked. Just use your smartphone's default browser. I completely removed chrome from my devices after they fired that employee for no good reason other than "muh gender politics". Can't deal with their shit.

Previous thread >>62269628
Alright, here's the deal: it's almost the end of 2017 and I've been using strictly only wireless Bluetooth headphones for the couple last years, simply out of principle and to gather all the needed first-hand experience on this entire "wired VS wireless" debacle. So, after using strictly only wireless headphones on a daily basis for almost two-and-a-half years, I can definitely without any doubt openly state that the "always wired only" and "only highly expensive portable players/no smartphone pleb-tier" pseudo-audiophilic FAGGOTS are completely and absolutely FULL OF SHIT. I won't argue with anyone here that wireless headphones in general and wireless sound technologies in overall were utter garbage just 5-or-so years ago, but nowadays it's NOWHERE even remotely close to being as bad as it was in 2012 and further down the line. Everything (literally EVERY THING) these so-called self-proclaimed pseudo-audiophilic kiddie shithead trolls are openly and absolutely brainlessly proclaiming loudly everywhere about MODERN wireless sound technologies being any "bad" or "not on par with wired" is 100% COMPLETE BULLSHIT. Abso-effing-lute LIE. These retarded deaf kiddies clearly never used any modern wireless headphones that cost more than 50$ (and actually good/worthwhile wireless headphones start from the 120$ mark AT THE VERY LEAST) and/or they never tried Apt-X LL or ESPECIALLY the GODLIKE LDAC. These FAGS basically don't know jack about any of this, but they act like they're the hottest and most knowledgeable shits around the block while in reality they're not hot, but just shit. MODERN wireless sound IS actually VERY good and does NOT lose to wired at all by the sheer quality of sound and latency (if it's apt-X LL or LDAC), WHILE being WAAAY more convenient and comfortable to use due to headphones being completely (WELL, DUH!) wireless. Fuck all those pseudo-audiophilic pseudo-elitistic sudo-entitled "pro-wired" scrubshits, I say. They know fucking NOTHING.
is the Oneplus 5 a chinese botnet engine eating up all mah freeduhms?
or is it a steal deal for the price (sale for 370EUR=440USD on gearbest).
What are the alternatives?
If you want help:
>Assemble parts list
>State the budget for your build (and country if not USA)
>List games/software you use often, as well as your monitor resolution + refresh rate
>Clarify your goal for build improvements: lower price or improved specs?

No i5 unless discounted
>G4560 - poverty-tier builds
>R3 1200 - Budget builds (<$500)
>R3 1400 - If you need multithreading
>R5 1600 - Best value for higher fps gaming / mixed usage
>R7/Used Xeon/Threadripper - Compute/Multitask/VM/mixed use, not for just gaming
Coin miners have driven price up and stock down, waiting to buy a GPU might be wiser
>Integrated CPU Graphics - Desktop stuff and very light games
>GTX 1050(Ti) - Lower end budget cards, drop settings on newer games, RX560 beaten by both
>RX570 - [email protected]~hz maxed, running most maxed older games at 100~Hz
>RX580 and GTX1060 6GB - [email protected] maxed, [email protected] at lower settings; RX580 better in newer games
>GTX 1070 or Vega 56 - [email protected] /[email protected] at high
>GTX 1080 - [email protected] / [email protected] maxed, [email protected] in a few games; Probably the highest end card you need for 1080p/1440p
>GTX 1080Ti - [email protected] and [email protected] maxed/high in many games
>Good fucking luck even getting a VEGA right now
>Check your Mobo QVL before buying any RAM
>Ryzen CPUs benefits a lot from high speed RAM, 3200 MHz is ideal
ALWAYS LOOK AT PRODUCT REVIEWS!
Always consider an SSD. Try buying a large SSD for what you'd pay for your SSD+HDD combined, and add a HDD later
NVMe SSDs aren't for a faster OS boot, they're for productivity/scratch disk/VMs. NVMe and M.2 are not the same thing, M.2 is a form factor
an i3-6100 on a h110 or b150 with 2133, is the same price as a g4560 on a b250 with 2400. Doesn't really matter as it looks like you will need a 300 series board for 8th gen. and 1151 v1 is dead. No wonder there was no h210
What's the best WiFi dongle/card/whatever if my router is on the lower floor and I'm on the upper floor? This is what I've been seeing get recommended but is the reception solid?

Have you used one before and did you enjoy?

If you want something mainstream in great quality you come to HDB. If you want something non-mainstream in great quality you come to KG/Cinematik/CZ. There's no reason to use PTP unless you have a penchant for pajeetrips of blockbusters.
>Stallman is more important than Steve Jobs and Bill Gates
Stallman invented the philosophy that gave me an OS that I use today.
Steve Jobs invented a way to sell computers to faggots.
Bill Gates just wants to spread AIDS in Africa with tainted vaccines.
Why exactly should anyone consider Jobs and Gates more important than Stallman? Because the lying media says so? The same media that predicted Hillary winning with over 400 electoral votes?
Why don't you like him, /g/?

Crazy gweilo hacker is back! Before, he built his own iPhone 7 and now he's added a 3.5mm audio jack to iPhone 7 with the help of some chinks in Shenzen.
Anything's fucking possible if you have access to chips and hardware.
Anyone wanna go to Shenzen with me, /g/?
this is fucking cool.. machines that make flexible PCBs.
