Can we have a decent return to normalcy?
I hate all these new summer /pol/ friends invading this board calling everything a kike shill or a botnet. The reason nobody likes /pol/ is for the paranoia and annoying politicizing of quite literally everything.
Technology in general should be non-partisan. If you want to call something against free speech then call it oppressive and warn that with its use comes a compromise. Don't call Google a bunch of Jews just because a lot of people are comfortable with giving their information to them. Some people trust conglomerates like this. Some of them don't. Personally I'm a huge advocate of free software since the early 2000's and a practicing activist against censorship anywhere it appears. Let's not ruin a legitimate issue with naive name-calling and paranoia. Nobody takes /pol/ seriously for a reason.
Also mods, I know this isn't entirely on topic but it's a serious meta issue on this board as of late. If you prefer me to e-mail one of you to try to convince you to take a more rigorous form of action against these shitposters.
Mods need to enforce their global rules now. 4chan is now a mainstream media. If the blatant racism is not removed (which is against 4chans CoC), this site could be taken down.

What rust projects are you working on /g/?
Is this guy better than Ballmer?
Why do people recommend beginners to stay away from IDEs? Isn't it kinda convenient when you can run your script without leaving your working environment? Saving a file after editing it and running and interpreter separately gets old real fast.
Upgraded from 8 to 16GB
/guts it is
Just upgraded it today from a 4690k to a 7700k. Shit is fast as fuck, shame about the temps.
1. What do you use?
2. What is a good free AV that protects novice users from possible threats and requires no interaction with it?

After coming onto /g/ ive decided that i want to try oht linux BUT, i dont want to fully get rid of windows FOR NOW.
Im planing on Arch or Ubuntu dual boot with windows, anything i should keep in mind with dual boot
>inb4 install gentoo
Make sure you have a partition free for the installation, otherwise you might accidentally overwrite windows. Also, stick with ubuntu or linux mint for now. Learn to crawl first before you walk.
>tfw the botnet wants me to be poor
Did you even read it?
>A few months later, a beautiful and clever but rather too forceful woman asked me to be her lover. I had some doubts but wouldn't reject the idea out of hand. So she spent the night with me.
I'm not sure if he is severely autistic, a player or both.
>We did not become lovers. I didn't fancy her, and she didn't want sex outside marriage. We were fascinated with each other without sex. So I thought of her as my childhood sweetheart, the idea being you're never too old to have one.
He didn't mean it in the literal sense of the word.

Well will they learn that material design looks horrible on fucking desktop?
>everything is turning into a subscription (music, photoshop, 1password, other apps)
>you will never "own" anything
Where did it all go so wrong?
Truth is you don't really need to own them, the real problems are:
- the price that adds up over time and it will be bigger than a one-time payment
- it needs a verifiable subscription and an internet connection
- it will be harder to get stuff for "free".
