This is a blue board which means that it's for everybody (Safe For Work content only). If you see any adult content, please report it.

Is it just me or this fucking piece of shit is slow and nearly unusable due to graphics and UI bugs? Anyone using it successfully? Am I doing it wrong and should be using M8 instead of KDE?

Long story short, I'm not an expert on Linux shit but I'm not a noob either, I installed it manually alongside Windows 10 with the correct partitions, and then had to manually install the WiFi dongle driver (weird, it's a common as fuck Realtek chipset from 2 years ago, why is it still not built into the kernel?), and the fucking nVidia driver (again, why the fuck doesn't the driver manager even work? It kept using Nouveau instead of nVidia, I had to manually install to get it to work). On top of that I have the following issues
>major UI wide screen tearing issues, can't fix even with solutions I found on Google
>slow and laggy scrolling in Firefox, again, can't fix no matter what
>overall system is much slower than W10 on the same drive, and I've installed W10 on top of a years old install of W8, from boot to program opening to web browsing, and this is a clean system installed yesterday
>hibernation doesn't fucking work no matter what, I think it has something to do with encrypted home folder
>no built in system wide encryption, I thought this shit was supposed to be secure
>I managed to crash the entire UI and get stuck on a black screen with only the mouse pointer just by playing with widgets

I'm not asking you on help how to fix these issue, I just want to know if this shit actually works to begin with. My system is common as fuck, all parts are compatible according to the wiki, it's not even a laptop with weird custom hardware but a run of the mill gaymer PC from 2 years ago. Also I'm pretty sure "linux is faster than Windows" and "linux is more secure" are literally memes from the age of Windows XP.

I'm using it with 0 problems, the driver manager worked perfectly even with by slightly fucky laptops two graphics cards.

>>62096376
If you have the time try a fresh install or mint with cinnamon, I know you can switch DE without reinstalling but if your trying to fix shit fresh is better.

Alright /g/, Windows 7 vs 8.1 in 2017.

The UI of Windows 8 is shit. However, at least it can be modified relatively easily.
I like the StartIsBack + Aero Glass for Windows 8 + OldNewExplorer combo

Windows 10, on the other hand, has a bunch of spyware that's difficult to fully neuter without potentially breaking the OS.
>>
Where could I get a clean Windows 8.1 iso?
I want to try it out in a VM
>>
>>62095886
I use Classic Shell with OldNewExplorer and a Prenumbra 8 theme on my 8.1 install and I couldn't be happier. No forced modern UI and telemetry bullshit. Basically less bloated 7.

Best laptop for 400$ max?

Im planning on using it for Kali/Arch linux or ParrotOS. Not americuck so no ebay/craigslist

Trying home automation. Bought some sockets which work on the 433MHz RF (433.92MHz), but the receiver on the PI doesn't register any signals from the socket remote control when I press buttons, so I'm getting nowhere fast.

Sockets:
https://www.dustinhome.no/product/5010958443/neyc3-power-switch-kit-white

RF transmitter and reciever:
http://m.ebay.com/itm/433Mhz-Superheterodyne-3400RF-Transmitter-and-Receiver-Kit-For-Arduino-ARM-MCU-/121597448874

"R" in pic related is how I've connected it to the Raspberry Pi 2 B.

I've installed rpi-rf through pip and this is the command I use to listen:
rpi-rf_receive -g 17


The goal is to figure out what the remote control is sending, then disconnect the rf receiver and connect the rf transmitter (same pins), and from there send rf signals to turn on/off my sockets.

So I set up some nifty keyboard shortcuts in GNOME, for example Ctrl+T to open my terminal. Then I realized all this would interfere when I open tabs in my browser, etc. Is there any way to make the shortcuts context-specific? For example, only working from my default desktop?

Which should I learn first /g/?

Is C actually better / more efficient than C++, or is it just used for operating systems because they were created before C++ was a thing and no one can be bothered to rewrite?

Are modern projects likely to use one over the other?

modern projects are likely to use neither because people rarely write new operating systems

What are you looking to do?

If you want to program for a hobby, C, C++, Python.

If you want to work as a programmer and earn a good salary: Java, JavaScript, C#.

But anyways if you're just starting I recommend learning to program with Python. Then move on to whatever.

Any embedded stuff welcome here!

I mostly went full pure AVR nowadays, but see pic related every now and then in my drawer. An Arduino with ethernet shield, my first µC. Anyone got a nice idea what to do with it? I really have no idea ;_;

im looking at STM32F4 but I might want more ram than 196kb (256 or 512 would be perfect) anyone know of cortex M boards with 256kb/512kb ram?
