Because they don't really do anything novel. Also I'm kind of tired of treating my phone like my boss, I don't want constant notifications

People don't like charging multiple things, it's why wireless earbuds aren't going anywhere either.

Ok /g/, I need to ask a question. Is it worth falling for the vim meme in 2017?

For programming languages I'm certain the features of an IDE outweigh the supposed speed of vim but I can see it being useful for scripting languages and config file editing.

Is it worth spending hours learning all the shortcuts and old fashioned ways of doing things (no mouse support, convoluted clipboard system) over a modern GUI text editor?

Right now I use atom, and even though it's bloated as fuck it JustWerks™ and there's a bunch of useful addons that are easily available. Splitting into multiple windows is easy, mouse navigation, find and replace and the clipboard works like every other program and you don't have to learn 10 different keyboard shortcuts to perform basic tasks.

If vim really is much more efficient then I'm certainly up for learning it properly, I just need to know if it's actually good once you do or just a massive meme.

yes

It's a good way to quickly modify something, or when you don't have a GUI, but other than that it's obsolete.

Modern bulova has a few acceptable pieces. Mostly mallcore shit though.

Vintage accutrons are great though.

/g/ is all antivirus software just a meme?

Literally why does anyone use it? You can just:
>Keep all your personal files on a pendrive.
>Keep an installation image of your OS of choice handy on another pendrive.
>If things start looking fishy, migrate any and all documents to your files pendrive, boot from your installation pendrive, and reinstall the OS.

That's literally all there is to it. Safe. Effective. Independent, no nonsense. It's honestly a mystery why it's not more widely used.

Unique needs? Own a server, perhaps, or a business computer, with a particular desirable configuration that's a pain to setup over and over again every time things go to shit? No problem, just reinstall from a compressed backup image of a known clean and working system setup, instead of from the official installer. Easy peasy.

The problem lies when things start looking fishy. Once you migrate your documents you might migrate the virus as well.

Serious Question,


Why isn't there a Steam equivalent for Porn? Most sites rip you off and the content on streaming sites is mostly shit. Why hasn't this been done?

Because most western countries are so horribly puritan that they barely allow pornography, and the ones which aren't have ample amount of easy women or even legal bordellos - or already have their digital distribution system.

Mods need to be more active deleting shill threads. It seems like we are getting a new "install Brave" threads every 10 minutes. Install gentoo threads aren't tolerated, so why are we tolerating shills for some new garbage browser?

I don't understand the Linux meme. There's nothing that Linux can do that Windows can't. All free counterparts to proprietary Windows software is inferior in every way. If there is a non-free software that you liked to use in Windows, you can be guaranteed that the Linux version of that software isn't being maintained, is shittier, or doesn't even exist. Why use Linux besides muh botnet?

It's free

No annoying mandatory update system
Tons of not licensed freeware for home projects

You don't need to pay to use Linux and you have a lot more flexibility in general.

DESU though I just use Solus for my Facebook machine because of how weak the PC is and how smooth Solus runs compared to other operating systems I've tried.

If you want more though there's Fedora, Debian, Arch, and all their derivatives.

Every time I go to use windows it's a huge pain in the ass. When I use linux, it only does the stuff I have it set to do. Windows is also slow as shit on low spec hardware.

Just extremely limited in the apps you have at your disposal. I know you can sideload everything, but then you;re still joining every app botnet other than the google botnet. I just felt it was more trouble than it was worth. YMMV

Hey guys linux noob back trying to install lubuntu on my old laptop. Its a think pad x130e intel based and I belive 64 bit
I tried flashing the iso to my flash drive and it just gets stuck on the Lubuntu screen. Is it an issue with the drivers on my computer? Or is it a problem with the iso or how it was installed to the usb?

Im looking into other lightweight distros to run on my laptop. Im just going to be using it for basic browsing maybe basic photo editing and maybe a little counter strike
