Well I'm just considered as one of "IT help guys". Actually to my pack of freeware sotware to fix stuff i need a good operating system to install when someone's windows is fucked up.

Of course the awnser is linux. Many distros.

I have choosen linux mint because its easy to use, instalation doesent consume much time and its packed with libre office, firefox, codecs. So i just spend hour and computer has fully functional software and is ready to work with libre office or to just surf the internet (What most of my family does, they dont require games or stuff like AutoCad). Also cinnamon looks very good and is more friendly for people who have experience only with windows.

But i heard ubuntu is also easy to use and install, and i want to know. I should stay with mint or maybe change my "Free go to windows replacement" to ubuntu? Well i dont like ubuntu desktop (so mostly i will change it to cinnamon after instalation) but well ubuntu has something what is worth to use ubuntu instead of mint and spend time in manually installing codecs or changing desktop to cinnamon?

mint is basically ubuntu but with cinnamon. They both use the same repositories and everything. If you really like cinnamon, then there's no reason for you to switch.
>>
>>61897780
Mint is Ubuntu based distro while Ubuntu is based from Debian, so there is no big difference between two.

I understund why would someone pick ubuntu over debian but picking mint over ubuntu? It is fucking joke, they litterally copy paste from ubuntu and they put cinnamon DE.

Is LaTeX actually worth learning or am I about to fall for the meme? I'm familiar at other markups but I feel like It's kind of a waste of time to type out the tags just for a text document.

I would only use it if I had to write mathematical formula's.....which I don't.

Something like markdown is far more comfy for daily use.

I found it essential in my scientific work so far. Outside of research it's pretty worthless as a skill tho

reminds me of how i used office '97 in windows 95 on my 1994 thinkpad in high school... in 2003-4
i could do the same basic work on my practically free machine that they could do on their $$$$ powerbook g4's

Give it to me straight /g/. Is this a meme? I want one bad but can't help but feel I'd use it for 3 days before leaving it in a drawer.

What would you actually use it for? All PDA functions can be found on modern smartphones. You can't code on it because you would develop carpal tunnel syndrome or something, and you'd actually use this to call people? Plus it will never be released anyway because niche market.

Verdict: 100% meme.
>>
Said fuck it and 'bought' one. Really not that expensive (if it will ever be released....) plus they look comfy as fuck. Was always in the market for a new UMPC so it's nice that a new one will be released in 2017

Mint is the single worst distro to ever reach any sort of popularity.
They delay important security issues and have had their ISO downloads hacked in the past.
They cause namespace collisions in their package management, causing some software to be unavailable and missing or incorrect dependencies breaking other software.
The reason people think it just werks is that they distribute proprietary binaries without having proper permissions to do so.

Whether Vega will be bad or good depends on its price, for 4k benchmarks it is just a little better than 1080. If they sell it for a less price then we have a winner.

For 500 bucks it's not bad
Too bad i couldn't wait and got a 1080 for that price

I'd like to see how the 56 compares, and honestly performance is where i expected it to be... the only real issue is the power and thermals.

I want to pirate Life Is Strange, but the windows version does not work with wine, even though it's supposedly platinium on appdb.

we have a single one that is above average price for a modern gaming tower

if we can get some competition with maybe octo arm64s or amd socs or apus for gamers and a cheaper market just for programmers ie ssh terminal

200+ is just too much for a glorified tablet with a keyboard.
they need a <$100 base option

also that keyboard looks weak
too far gapped and giant keys
