Why was XP so comfy?
The operating system's name isn't "Linux" or "GNU/Linux"; there's just the GNU operating system and Linux is one of it's kernels.
If you can't distinguish a kernel from an operating system, you don't belong to this board.
What book do you recommend for learning CS (other than SICP)?
As a followup? Introduction to Algorithms
As a starting point? code.org
>High PPI is a meme
Why haven't you bought a Vive yet /g/?
Is R&K still the best way to learn C?
Are the new things in C since the second edition worth learning/important?
Post 'em now /g/

It's over Nvidia is finished
Of course not, it's always hype hype hype. But keep in mind though, a broken clock is right twice a day and 28nm to 14nm should actually deliver. I'm actually thinking these Polaris cards will have overclocking headroom as well since Polaris was said to have been a major improvement in TDP.
can we have a retro technology thread?
i'm thinking of getting pic related, a libretto 50ct and dock for basically $50, i'd be trading some car parts i dont need for it.
what do you think? anyone here have some cool and odd vintage or retro stuff?
Tell me ,what you will do with this piece of tech ? I AM really curious
I have a 50ct and a 70ct. They are surprisingly useful and neat. The keyboard is very usable, despite the short keys.
The battery packs use commonly available li-ion cells so a rebuild is possible too. You will probably want to replace the motherboard battery on it.
A very useful upgrade would be a small CF / SD flash drive, replacing the internal hard drive. I want to do this, I bet it'd double the battery life which isn't that bad (2 hours?) as it is.
I've got a 50ct and 100ct, they're pretty cool novelties but ultimately useless.
Cute anime edition.
Some more new and not new Zen info.
Unit = 4 cores
Scalable to low power(4W-15W)
Strictly Inclusive cache = Meant for servers and HPC, and is more complicated than exclusive caches, AMD must feel confident.
Also the initial batch will only have 8 and 6 core CPUs, so AMD is sticking to one die for the time being, dual and quad core dies will probably come later unless they're strictly reserved for mobile.
Although if AMD can fit 8 cores in 95W TDP they sure as hell can fit 4 cores in <20W with lower clocks.
Why is ``Move'' still an option when one can just click+hold the top bar and move the window?
Because sometimes my window goes into oblivion and it's gone for fuck knows why
Fix using aero peak and right clicking the window then maximize/move
Fucking annoying when it happens
I'm less concerned with quality loss of generations, since images like that are usually re-re-re-watermarked shit anyway. I do like FLIF's compression - it's better than PNG and has progressive rendering. PNG /can/ do progressive rendering but it increases the file size. FLIF does progressive and gives better compression than PNG
I'm thinking about dropping out of uni and attending a programming bootcamp. Is this a good step if I want to be a software engineer, and if it's good, what should I look for in a programming bootcamp to make sure it's not cheating me off?
>drop out of uni
>to become a software engineer
just get a fucking computer science degree or most companies won't look at you. You'll get the same skill set but have more options in terms of internships and jobs at a uni than a programming bootcamp.
