I am a huge fan of Dell, not only for their Linux support, but the quality of their business and consumer laptop lineups has been astounding in my experience. We only order Dell at my workplace and we have very few tickets come in for bad hardware. Their ProSupport techs are third party contractors, but they are very helpful and knowledgable.

I personally own a Dell Inspiron 5570 laptop and I triple-boot Win10/Linux Mint/macOS High Sierra with no major issues. (I did have to swap in a Broadcom WiFi chip to get that working in macOS. I can provide links I used if anyone is interested.)

I wish I could discuss these theories with people in real life without being called an "America-hater" or a nutjob. If you don't subscribe to the "official" recollection of what happened, you're shut out. I've had family members become so defensive over it that it makes them visibly angry.

The Internet is a very hostile place if you're not wary of the man hiding around the corner with his camera. Its very sad knowing the Internet was meant to bring people together and let them express themselves; now our lives are bound by it and we depend on our online reputation.

That being said, I know that law enforcement needs to have access to some sort of information to catch criminals; however, there's no way to do that conservatively in this race to the bottom of destroying online privacy.

This is frightening, if true; any foreign country (including Russia) could turn the US upside-down in a matter of moments.

This had to piss off a lot of people.

What is with this massive drive to convince people to do genetic testing? by baal in fringe

Call me paranoid, but I will not partake in genetic testing if I can avoid it. Any corporation holding the genetic information of many people can lead to blackmail if the test results fall into the wrong hands.

Youtube alternative app for android called Newpipe via f-droid. by leo in videos

NewPipe is the only way I watch YouTube; an added plus is that it does not require Google Play Services. (My phone uses a custom ROM where I choose to not use Google Play)

F-Droid has many other useful open-source apps in addition to NewPipe. Check it out!

It is unfortunate for someone so talented to be shunned because they are considered "unusual". This resembles the story of Alan Turing; he played a major part in cracking the Enigma cipher in World War II, but some remember him specifically for his sexual orientation instead.

PeerTube: A 'Censorship' Resistent YouTube Alternative by magnora7 in technology

Once YouTube alternatives like this really start to take off, we'll all wonder why we didn't do it this way in the first place. Everybody used to trust that the Internet is "sacred" and we could use platforms like YouTube without the slightest worry of censorship.

Now people are opening their eyes and seeing what the Internet is really intended to do for the world: To connect us all together, in the way we want to connect with each other.

The Systemd Conspiracy by d3rr in Linux

I'm seeing OpenRC mentioned as a systemd alternative here. Does anyone have experience with using OpenRC on a regular basis? I'm interested in replacing systemd if OpenRC is easy to configure.

I'm glad you got it fixed. The ability to chroot into a failing distro is invaluable.

Do you have a brief description of what issue caused the system to break? I am running Arch on my laptop and its good to avoid show-stopping issues when possible.
