What's the cutest programming language?
I'm currently running Xubuntu 15.10, but I've been having some issues lately. One of the bigger ones is Optimus support. It worked fine about a year ago but lately it's been fucking my shit up (no graphical login, X11 wont start, etc). I usually end up having to just reinstall to get back. Since this is the case, I might as well check out something else.
Right now I'm posting from a Kubuntu Live USB. Not too bad I guess, but I've never been a fan of KDE and as such have never really used it. I've heard quite a few here say it's a buggy mess. What kind of shit did you naysayers run into?
Kubuntu is too bloated and glitzy (it feels they went overboard trying to make it pretty, too many animations, etc.)
I haven't used Gnome in quite a while, but last time I gave it a try I found it to be underwhelming. I tend to prefer more traditional/standard desktop environments.
LXDE is fine, but offers little over XFCE, particularly Xubuntu's flavor of it. If you couldn't run XFCE for some reason (e.g., very old hardware) LXDE would be a solid alternative, however.
I've also run Lubuntu for a few years before I jumped to Xubuntu. While I really liked it, there were always some bugs that seemed to never get fixed. Anyone running a current version have any issues? Perhaps the old bugs are gone, but maybe not.
Any audiophiles here? Or even people who understand speaker circuitry. I'm having a problem.
whats the dip package?
some sort of micro with rf out

Anybody here use Antergos? Thoughts?
it's basically just an arch installer. if you want arch installed quick do it.
That's literally it, I don't think theres any more information thats really important, something about their own repos or some shit but w.e
My Note 5 is only 32GB and I would love to save some movies on it.
Anyway to compress the files, or make them take up less space?
Anyone ever read the entire registry?
How difficult would it be to attempt and identify undocumented windows registry keys to tweak windows in previously unknown ways?
So my Nexus 7 is running really slow. I'm going to uninstall all the apps (is the best way to do it through the uninstaller) but are there other software I can use to make it run well?
I'm so fucking done with windows
literally software that is a prison for its users
from now on it's FOSS or fuck off
Just bought a raspberry pi 3. I have some ideas for it but would also like to see what you think are some useful things to do with it.
"rate that video player" thread
starting with vlc
Ok, so i have this old acer netbook with Linux mint installed. I don't want to get rid of it because its portable and comes in handy all the time when I'm working on family's computers. I want to upgrade the RAM and 5200rpm hard drive. Would i really see a significant boost in performance by getting an SSD, or would money be better spent on a 7200rpm 320GB WD black HD with 32MB cache?
They sell 320GB hard drive still? Holy shit for what? 40$? You could buy a a 1TB for like 65$.
Just buy a 250GB SSD for 60$ dude. You get literally over 5x the speed. Yes SSD's are worth it
Yes, I have similar netbok with a single core Celery and 2GB of RAM. The SSD made it feel like a flied. Startup and program opening is significantly faster sometimes almsot instantly. However it still (obviously) sucks at multitasking since Spotify lags and stutters when having more than 4 Chrome tabs open.
I had one with an amd apu. It was good for things on the go. I would recommend using xubuntu with it. For me it was smooth even with the poor hardware. What do you intend to use or for btw?
There is still nothing that comes close to Winamp with Milkdrop.
Why do other music players even compete?
