What are you doing with your pies /g/?
Let’s say we had an opportunity to start from scratch in the near future and build a completely brand new operating system targeting desktop computers. I’d like to hear your opinion, what would you like to see? Doesn’t matter what your technical knowledge or experience is, as you can explain it in layman’s terms if you wish.
What type of kernel should be used? Microkernel/Monolithic/Hybrid/Other? Why?
What type of filesystem? Any particular features worth implementing or perhaps something already exists that can fulfill all the needs?
Should such and OS focus on backwards compatibility with older hardware/software/porting or should it focus on modern hardware and only be forward looking?
What type of desktop environment should be used?
Are there any other features or ideas you would like to see implemented?
From a layman (concerning OS architecture):
Ubiquitous and easily implemented compatibility with any and all non FOSS systems, programs, and peripherals while being completely FOSS and KISS. Also a very marketable and continuity driven UI like all the good things about macOS. Maybe based on Unix.
Name a better programming language. Spoiler: you can't.

Please convince me to switch to Linux. I'm starting to get really sick of Windows, but I keep from switching to Linux over small things. For example, I like being able to just install programs on Windows with just a couple clicks.

Why the fuck do people dislike Vista again?
This isnt about which is better, clearly IPS is. This is about, should i really get it for my needs. I dont do graphical work but i will watch the odd movie or porn on occasion.

Hey, I'm going to New York in a few weeks, I don't think I can take pictures with my phone so I was thinking of getting back into the disposable camera game. Partly for the nostalgia factor (I have great memories using these in the late 90s early 2000's) and partly because I need something cheap.
Basically, I'm just wondering if anyone one here has used these recently. What's the quality like compared to let's say a digital photo from an iPhone? Which brand makes the best ones? I'm probably just going to get Kodak because that's what I used as a toddler and I want the nostalgia rush, but if some other company has a much better camera I'll go for it.
Thanks in advance.

Hello, /g/entlemen. I want to install a GNU/Linux distro on a USB drive for troubleshooting purposes. For my use case, it needs to be fairly lightweight and have good built-in driver support. What would work best for this?

Who does this? Why start bidding the price up with 6 days left? What kind of brainlet is behind this? Show yourself.
