What would be the best distro for a normie like me?
All im going to use Linux for is browse the ebin internet, shitpost on 4chan, watch YouTube Videos .. communicate with friends on Steam/Skype.
I am aware that Skype for Linux is utter garbage cause of the microsoft jew.
How can i install it in a dual boot type of meme so i can switch back to the botnet whenever i need to.
What is this shit on the motherboard?
Wuz gud /g/s, any networkfags lurking?
>block all incoming and outgoing traffic
>except for a handful of programs plus the package installer / updater
Is this possible with iptables without white/shitlisting specific IPs/ports, like can you just say allow programs XYZ to do whatever and drop everything from any IP destined for any port that isn't coming or going to or from programs XYZ?
If not what's the closest thing / way to make this happen?
start with a "block all" rule and go from there
if you really want your progs to accept any port you should set up a DMZ to redirect incoming connections to transient ports 49512-65536 on the LAN
it's really retarded to configure a firewall with "app X can do anything" and may not be possible in iptables
Shieeet, bit too advanced for me my nigga, or maybe not, like what would i have to specifically whitelist in order for a browser, torrent client, and the package manager to just werk while errything else gets fukken dropped.
And i might have misspoke in the OP, by >do anything i meant just work normally, not have access to any port or stuff like that.
whitelist all outgoing traffic and ur apps will work
the config will look like:
block in all
allow out all
a DMZ is simply a machine connected to the internet running a firewall. it's useful if you want 1 computer to be your point man on the net, and have him pass messages to little guys in yr apartment (if you want to ssh into yr laptop for example).
the DMZ says "here i am, this is for you." the shell server says "tanks, here's my response" and the DMZ...

Remember those holographic discs everyone was talking about back in the 2000s that could store terabytes of data on one disc and was supposed to be the successor to Blu-ray? What happened to those?
Exynos 9 is being fabbed on 10nm process right now to be used on Galaxy Note refresh coming in Late August/September time frame.
Snapdragon 830 will also start production soon on Samsung's 10nm process.
It appears Intel's manufacturing advantage has all but evaporated.
>It appears Intel's manufacturing advantage has all but evaporated.
Intel's manufacturing advantage lies in the fact that they can make high performance chips, while Samsung's process is optimized for low power phone chips.
>no production sample available to outside research firms to determine whether feature sizes on Samsung's 10nm node is smaller or larger than Intel's 14nm node
>I KNOW IT'S LARGER HURR
butthurt kike pls go
is 802.11ac a meme wireless standard since 802.11n is both good enough and inexpensive enough for most users?
AC has better range, penetrating power, and throughput speeds. If you need this that N doesn't offer you, then you go with AC.
The next wireless standard is likely to be a meme since we don't need one after that for probably a few more years at least.
802.11ac isn't expensive though, you can get a gigabit router for under $50, there's no excuse
maybe for web browsing it's fine but for data transfers or streaming, especially streaming games (to things like steam link or nvidia shield), there's definitely a huge difference. If you live alone and only web browse no reason to upgrade though.
Is it a good idea to use gloves for handling technology equipment? Does anyone use some?
I only use Gloves when coming near my precious IBM ThinkPads in my Tempreture controlled and UV Lightless echo chamber.
I have shit Comcast so I can't run my own server. An affordable VPS will probably have the IP blacklisted. I don't want to use Google or Microsoft to host. Aside from the street shitting Zoho seems like it would be ok for personal email. Unless it's not?
Is this a meme? For casual use?
Just ordered me one on ebay lel.
That's basically it, I'm thinking of probably just watching you tube and shit, nothing hardcore.
I'm pretty hyped rn.
>Tor browser needs updating
>80 MB update if I miss a few updates
What the fuck /g/? Why are they basically just downloading a fresh install of it each time it updates?

I'm installing my first Linux and I chosen Arch, it's a fucking pain in the ass.
How does /g/ feel about the rampant generals?
Will this force jap moot to make /gg/ (technology general) or will we live with this cancer forever?
So I turned on my computer and left to take a dump while it booted and I come back and find its been raped by Microsoft and installing windows 10. What should I expect when it's done fondling my poor laptop
Would an Intel Skylake i5 6600k perform well enough over an AMD FX-8350 to justify the extra money spent between the chip/mobo/ddr4?
I am looking to upgrade from my A10 (seeing as I now have an R9 380) and am not really sure.
