I bet Linus uses the nonfree Chrome out of spite
The one with pillars against control of one's life by software they can't control is Richard M. Stallman. The lead developer of Linux only developed that core software and open-sourced it with the General Public License for some little thing, not that he strictly believes anything against restrictive life-controlling devices.
When connecting my laptop to a vga monitor, would there be a difference in quaity between using a hdmi to vga adapter and a usb to vga adaptor? (Obviously my laptop doesn't have vga slot)
I have no idea how to use /g/ but I need some help with this thing. It's a Tascam Portastudio 414. Everything works except for the fact the cassettes are sped up and distorted. Anybody able to fix this?
Hey /g/, /k/ommando here.
I have a pretty plain Dell laptop running Windows 10 on an Intel i3 I got from Walmart a few months ago. I just ordered a 500 gig SSD and 16 gigs of RAM. Will this make my computer not shit? Also, is there anything else that I can do to upgrade this laptop? I actually haven't upgraded a computer before so I'm not sure what other lttle shit you can do to upgrade it, aside from maybe overclocking. It already has Bluetooth too, so that's out.
These are the specific parts.
SSD will make huge difference
RAM not so much unless you only have 2GB and constantly run out of RAM, but it's nice to have and won't hurt you
Other than that I don't think there's much you can do, but an SSD will usually give a huge performance improvement.
Maybe do a fresh install of Windows if you have a lot of crapware on it (usually the case with Walmart laptops). Make sure to get your Windows serial and a genuine Windows ISO, then there are thousands of noob-friendly tutorials on the internet to help you with that. Or you can go...

So I thought I'd try this Linux compatibility layer in Windows 10 redstone.
Oh, actually no - I can't since Windows Update takes a week or more to start delivering new builds if you change your settings from slow to fast ring.
What a fucking joke.
This proves that windows update CAN NOT be trusted to deliver security updates in a timely manner - there could be several WEEKS IF NOT MONTHS between when Microsoft releases a critical update and when your Windows 10 PC might eventually pick it up.
Once Microsoft publishes something it should be available right away.
If debian releases a new version of a package - as soon as it's available on the repo my client can grab it.
I don't have to wait for some arbitrary weeks on end for my client to pick it up.
I'm not implying MS should releases new builds faster, the builds are clearly on the servers - it's the windows update client that is failing.

Does anyone here work at Amazon? I'm going to be starting as an engineer and wanted pro tips.
Hey, guys. I need some computer help. Every time I unplug my laptop it dies, like really fast. What would cause that? I think the laptop in the picture is my model.
these two speakers on craigslist for $10,000
microwalsh radiators for $850... overpriced
I got 4 sticks of 4GB RAM. My 3rd and 4th slot won't work. Meaning when I put RAM into those slots the computer screen goes black and my PC turns on for 20 seconds and turns off, and repeats itself.
I currently using slot 1 and 2. Tested out my RAM and it's fine. All 4 sticks work.
Speccy shows that my motherboard recognizes all 4 but shows 2 free and 2 available.

I haven't used a computer for 8 years, just installed Ubuntu 16.04, now what?
Why install windows when I can play games on max settings?
