Ubuntu MATE is a stable, easy-to-use operating system with a configurable desktop environment. It is ideal for those who want the most out of their computers and prefer a traditional desktop metaphor. With modest hardware requirements it is suitable for modern workstations, single board computers and older hardware alike. Ubuntu MATE makes modern computers fast and old computers usable.
Ubuntu MATE has a number of guiding objectives and goals.
>Accessible to all, regardless of language and physical ability.
>Increase both Ubuntu and MATE Desktop user adoption.
>Ubuntu alternative for computers that aren’t powerful enough to run a composited desktop.
>First choice Ubuntu platform for remote workstation solutions such as LTSP and X2Go.
>Recreate the halcyon days of Ubuntu for users who prefer a traditional desktop metaphor.
>Use themes and artwork similar to Ubuntu so that Ubuntu MATE is immediately familiar.
>When possible contribute to Debian so both the Debian and Ubuntu communities benefit.
>Software selection will favour functionality and stability over lightness and whimsy.
The MATE Desktop is one such implementation of a desktop environment and includes a file manager which can connect you to your local and networked files, a text editor, calculator, archive manager, image viewer, document viewer, system monitor and terminal. All of which are highly customisable and managed via a control centre.
MATE Desktop provides an intuitive and attractive desktop environment using traditional metaphors, which means if you’ve ever used Microsoft Windows or Apple Mac OS, it will feel very familiar.
The MATE Desktop has a rich history and is the continuation of the GNOME2 desktop, which was the default desktop environment on many Linux and Unix operating systems for over a decade. This means that MATE Desktop is tried, tested and very reliable.

I really like the mate DE, but what's confusing I'd, why does Fedora mate perform a little better than Ubuntu mate, even though Fedora uses 50MB ram more? Cpu is a d2500 with hd5450 graphics card.
has anyone here ever gotten DirectX 11 working on windows xp? searching the web mostly came up with "hurr just upgrade" and some sketchy looking russian hacks.
as to why - I have an interest in using OBS (requires DX11) on windows XP to run some older games that require full hardware acceleration.
>Controversially, the original name for the DirectX project was the "Manhattan Project", a reference to the US nuclear weapons initiative. Alex St. John, head of Microsoft DirectX evangelism at the time, claims that the connotation of the ultimate outcome of the Manhattan Project (the nuclear bombing of Japan) is intentional, and that DirectX and its sister project, the Xbox (which shares a similar logo), were meant to displace Japanese videogame-makers from their dominance of the video-game industry. However, Microsoft publicly denies this account,...

You're at a crossroads, OP. Either get a more recent version of Windows (on a separate machine or HDD if you must), or accept the ways of the Slavic sages.
There are no easy workarounds for this sort of thing, because the easy workaround is to say goodbye to the Luna theme and the search window dog, and move on to a more recent version of Windows.
Based apple for xcode and swift, every time I have to work with android I just wanna jump out the window.
So, what's the consensus of Corsair's dual-chamber cases?

What did he mean by this?
Sources tell me Linux terminal can be pretty powerful. Any beginner level command learning sites out there? Wanna learn hacker shit
You're at the epicenter of hacking already, friend.
This is where Anonymous lives, the legendary outlaw.
Your house is going to get raided by the fbi in 24 hours. what do you do in that timespan ?
The highly objective problem with Linux. No content creation software. Gimp is a joke. Kx studio also laughable. If you want to create professional grade music, professional grade image manipulation,professional grade video editing, there is no point in running linux. I wish there was a way ( besides with wine muh machine is running it better). And if on top you want to play games well...realistically there is only windows. Thats why linux for desktop use is only on 3%. Sad but true.
I have 16gb of RAM and an SSD.
Do I need a pagefile?
Should everyone learn CS?

How important is this class in all honesty to a CS major?
I took it with a godawful professor that did nothing the entire semester. The class was such a joke I found the answers to every possible quiz and test questions online in mere seconds. The class will be over on Monday and I haven't learned a single thing.
Debating whether or not I should retake this class over the summer or just keep plowing through?
Actually pretty neat.
But you will have to look up or use a API for a lot of the things if you need them like B-trees or dijkstra algorithm or Big O notation(only really interesting in recursive programms).
But its still pretty nice to know how it works beforehand.
To be honest just grab a book, maybe even for advanced stuff, if the class at your university is shit.
Did you get one of those shit professors who don't have you actually implement all those algorithms and datastructures? Because I had one of those when I took the class, it was dogshit.
Implementing them yourself may be something you almost never do (because standard libraries exist), but it's still a good introduction on how to arrange and manipulate stuff in memory.
Do what >>54397078 said and grab a book or ten on algorithms that sound cool. My favorite...
