IBM is Already Gutting Red Hat and Firing Employees Without Warning, Jim Whitehurst Isn’t Even Using Linux. by realpanzer in Linux

Sad. Red Hat 8 is the first Linux distro I ever installed and I liked it. Tried Fedora two years ago and an update broke my system :/

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 realpanzer 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.

Sweden clear-cut its elderly population, let it spread like wildfire in nursing homes, and denied medical service to dying people at the peak of the infections.

Not quite. TLDR: It's not possible from our vantage point to assert this although it could be possible. They're(nebulaes) just very spread out masses of ionised gasses that we see as coloured halos from light years away.

Yup. People have this prefabricated notion of what life is about like having babies, marrying, owning a house and then slaving for a lifetime trying to accomplish/pay for all that. Our institutions, media(Hollywood) play a role in forging that mindset. I just find all of it pointless.

And this is where capitalism fails. Treating basic needs such as housing like a commercial commodity and determining its value based on the laws of the market(supply and demand, inflation, speculation, emerging markets, etc.) completely disregards the human factor. I am not advocating communism as it stifles innovation, competition, entrepreneurship and certain freedoms(communism however does not equal totalitarianism) but a little bit more socialism wouldn't hurt. If you don't mind being branded a "commie" by those conflating communism with socialism. But I digress, this world is FUCKED!

115 but I rushed through it and had some distractions. I'll try it again when I have more time to decipher the patterns. Also, it's in Norwegian or Swedish.
