This is the only Linux distro designed for watching anime.

Which one /g/?
why are all new smartphones the same design-wise?

My friend has a new 4k monitor 60hz max. He will need a new GPU. Will you recommend AMD or Nvidia because it has FreeSync?
What is the minimum GPU for 4k @60hz of each brand
Advanced users of GNU/Linux (and I mean advanced), remember to try Source Mage GNU/Linux. True source-based distribution, and (in contrast with Gentoo and Arch) is:
Free from obfuscated and pre-configured code.
Fully committed to GPL, uses only free software (as in freedom) in their main package.
With even the documentation licensed as FDL.
Without 3rd party patches, sensible defaults or masked packages.
Doesn't need obfuscated python libraries, only bash.
No systemd (they've implemented their own init scripts system http://sourcemage.org/Init).
Uses clean dependencies as they came from upstream developers, which by the same provides instant updates.
Can heal broken installs.
Can also use flags.
Do you like Arch Linux's AUR? Do you like Gentoo's portage (or ports-like) package manager? With SMGL's "sorcery" you get all that. Making new spells (package build files) not found in the grimoire (repository of spells) is easy http://sourcemage.org/Spell/Book
Bash hackers welcome! Come and join http://sourcemage.org/
Installing SMGL is easy, here's the simplified process:
>boot a live Ubuntu (or whatever) USB drive
>go to SMGL website and download compressed archive of the base system
>partition and mount partition(s)
>extract the archive onto the new partition(s)
>chroot, set root passwd, hostname, configure network and locale, write fstab, install grub/lilo
>compile a kernel (preferably the newest stable one from kernel.org)
>update sorcery, grimoires and the build toolchain
>rebuild the system (hold spells you've already built, so you don't build them twice)
The install guide will hold your hand through the whole process http://sourcemage.org/Install/Chroot
Do the chroot method, since the regular live ISO method guide is out of date currently.
Here's a list of common commands: https://pastebin.com/i4DALaNV
For those interested in some history, Source Mage was originally called Sorcerer (first released in 2000, the same year as Gentoo), but due to some problems (around 2002), Sorcerer split into 3 distros: Lunar Linux (pretty much dead), Sorcerer (fork by the original creator, he took it offline for some reason and killed it) and Source Mage (with most of the original dev team).
By the time Source Mage got off the ground (2002), Gentoo had already amassed a large and vibrant community, basically leaving Source Mage in the dust.
Since Gentoo had much more momentum at a critical time, Source Mage remained in it's shadow ever since.
That's the reason why Source Mage is largely unknown now compared to Gentoo, despite technically being as old as Gentoo.
Despite all that, Source Mage is still a good distro.
The package management tools work well and there are still people working on them.
The problem is that the distro is so small right now, there are not enough people to maintain all the spells and keep them up with the upstream.
If you're going to install it, you should use the test grimoire (it's not bleeding edge, but it's quite up to date and fine for my needs at least).
>live in europe
>attend a self proclaimed university when it's a shitty community college, the program is "Network technique and IT security", two years
>can do one more year but it's a lot of math in two courses, fuck that i suck at math and forcing myself to git gud at something i failed for 15 years is not going to happen
>every course is some Cisco bullshit
>every lecture is literally taken from Cisco's website, wtf is the point of a lecture
>entire thing seems like a scam
What can I even do with CCNA and CCIE if I pass these bullshit exams? The entire thing seems like a scam to me. I don't know what the fuck to do and you have to be good at math to get into good degrees where the actual jobs are. Im just fucked, there's no hope for brainlets.
But seriously, is Cisco a meme company in Europe? Never heard of it and what are the chances to find a job with these two academic certificates?
Forgot to add, some of the things they "teach" you in these certificates is how to build a PC... I mean come the fuck on, this is a meme company right? A ponzi scheme for these fake teachers to fill their own pockets.
1:its a legit company but primarily located in burgerland
2:your getting scammed HARD anon
3: if you can learn the "language" of programming you can learn the language of math
>they "teach" you in these certificates is how to build a PC.
your fucking kidding me right?
did they ATLEAST go into basic CPU architecture?
I know it's a legit company in the US but not in Europe. Why am I getting scammed? I think I'm getting scammed because they're teaching very basic shit. One of the lecturers mentioned we will get into cpu architecture later on but it'll probably be something like "A CPU handles complex formulas". Unfortunately I suck at programming, it's not that I can't understand it but because it's boring and I have no interest in it.

How can I be a real hacker?
Unofficial /g/ hacker checklist:
Have autism ( )
Use Linux ( )
Detest good looking ai ( )
Make functions harder in your OS ( )
Using init ( )
Using gnome ( )
Using LFS ( )
>5 means your a /g/ certified hacker
enter the IP adress into the mainframe to inject the SDF for a quantum Dot.
Then instal the virus into the monitor OS after you stop all the downloading.
Open IE trough the HDMI2.3.5 and create a mesh network connected trough the modem with an octa-core ISO Cloud Server. You should now visualize the K3rnel buffering
After that you Kode a syntax from 25-100 GHz with VR Machine neural learning with an ISP protocol
Done! You are now a hacker
>A board that prefers tech that is efficient and open source
>That tech turns out to be someone with a political stance
>Don't use that tech cause person disagree with their political view
Isn't it a better idea just to let technology drive the future instead of some bs political agenda that the company employees prefers? Wouldn't just ignoring their political views instead of giving it attention due to controversy be a better idea? Why not just use the application and ignore their stances? Is it really that hard?
No, but /pol/ has started to realize that they are the rotten scum on the bottom of the genepool, which is why all they get to date is catfish and so now they whine about stuff like this to fill their time until their virgin death.
What would YouTube look like now if nobody gave a shit about ad revenue?
Right, I got a problem with my computer..
My computer when I got it ran fine and everything, nothing wrong. Now after having for a while I'm running into a seriously fucking annoying problem. It keeps turning off. Anytime I try to render a video or if I load into a game in GTA V and try drive it turns off as well. I thought it was my power supply and when I described it to other people they thought the exact same. So as I did I bought and replaced the old power supply with a newer, higher wattage power supply. I'm here still running into the same problem. Could it possible be the graphics card? Please help would love to know
Is it true these things fall apart after a year?
There's no good alternative.
Definitely not a year. The Pro 3 that I had was going strong until I dropped it 1.5 years into owning it. So long as you aren't a complete moron like me they should last a few years.
The battery degradation is probably the biggest downer as it will probably be horrible after 3-4 years.
When my SP4/M3's battery fails, i'll never get one of these toys again. Dont get me wrong..it does everything I want with fine enough performance, but at that price point, I want a longer "lifetime" of this device...
I want a fanless thinkpad with an easy replaceable battery..
finally have to retire this bad boy... what current mouse is most similar in shape/size? Tried out a G502 in store and Logitech fucked up the ergonomics so it now requires a claw-like grip
