You're right. I didn't want to downplay the tragedy if true. But I remain skeptical. Also, I wasn't going to engage someone who claims moral superiority and bases his attacks on assumptions. "There's no great performance being put on for your benefit." The world is a fucking show!

Fucking disturbing. Despite what some others said, it looks pretty damn real to me. Still could be a false flag. Who can tell in this age of mass deception?

But publishing Trump's ill-begotten personal tax information is perfectly fine right?

Democrats Smear Amy Coney Barrett for Saying ‘Sexual Preference’. The really Orwellian thing here is that Merriam-Webster’s dictionary took *only hours* to change their published definition of the phrase to be in line with the Democrats’ new messaging. 1984’s Ministry of Truth is real! by Chipit in politics

Had to look it up. No shit! "offensive"? So Merriam-Webster is dictating how the English language is used based on what? Should I be offended that Google tailors ads based on my preferences as well as videos on YT curated by the algorithm? Identity politics will have us at each others' throats in no time.

Jewish guy says he supports Palestinian human rights in synagogue, imagine the reaction. by Vigte in MeanwhileOnReddit

The balls on that guy. I wasn't expecting such a hostile reaction. I mean, it would seem like a rather innocuous thing to say. Advocating for equal rights; the nerve of some people.

As of tonight, Peaches can't walk and isn't eating anymore. She lived a good life, she's nearly 20. Here's hoping she passes peacefully, she doesn't appear to be in any pain. by AmericanMuskrat in cats

R.I.P. Peaches. I'm sure she's had a good comfy life with love and free kibble.

eDEX-UI is a fullscreen, cross-platform terminal emulator and system monitor that looks and feels like a sci-fi computer interface. by [deleted] in Linux

[–]Optimus85 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Mint is a good place to start if you're unfamiliar with Linux. I'm on Pop! OS which is Ubuntu-based like Mint and it is quite user-friendly. There is a Linux version of eDEX-UI and it looks quite nice although a bit heavy on resources(+15% CPU usage) and it takes about half a minute to load and start. TOP and HTOP are lightweight but on the terminal only(and text-based). If you ever decide to make the switch and have questions, don't hesitate to ask(I'm assuming, perhaps wrongly, that your Linux knowledge is minimal)!

Yes indeed. That sub is one of the reasons I deleted my reddit account a while ago.

Kinda like the Superstore episode where they find a dead employee in the wall. Not making light of this; it's really fucked up.

s/jailbait banned for sexualizing minors by LiterarilyHonkler in reclassified

There is. I don't think the admins want to spend their time policing NSFW content plus the unwanted attention and being scrutinised by the authorities for illegal content. I don't know what new users think of this but I'm fine with it. There's no shortage of porn on the Internet anyway.

I don't like double posting as well but s/engineering is a sub I created a while back and I wasn't sure it would show up on s/all so I also posted on s/technology. FWIW, I took down the offending double post.

Well that's the thing, those are Microsoft-centric programs and tools. There are equivalent open-source alternatives. If you're a professional graphics designer and you can afford the Adobe suite for Windows/Mac then by all means. If not there's GIMP, Inkscape, Blender and a host of office suites for spreadsheets, presentations, word processing like Open/Libre Office for free. And the console is a bonus if you know how to use it; it's faster for a couple of things and can be useful for system monitoring and troubleshooting issues. But you can pretty much do everything by pointing and clicking. Linux has some nice graphical interfaces(KDE, Gnome, XFCE, LXDE, etc.). I don't know, with Linux I feel like I'm more in control of my computer. I get to decide when updates are applied, what desktop environment to use, install it on as many machines I want to...And it runs great on old hardware.

Linux is a bigger threat to Windows than you think by [deleted] in Linux

DE backwards compatibility. What does that even mean? You mean driver compatibility? That's hardly an issue nowadays. Besides, Linux supports more peripherals out-of-the-box than Windows. But keep shilling for that M$ proprietary crap.

Because Windows 10 with its telemetry, spying, NSA backdoor, forced updates and overall sluggishness is much better right? Not forgetting the fact that you have to pay for it. I'll stick with my "sucky" Linux thank you.
