Is /g/ all libtards? Also I'm all for encryption, privacy, free software and against the patriot act

Why is ios such a buggy piece of shit?
That's one of the better and more believable shops I've seen
If people were willing to cook their phones like hot pockets because of that quick-charge one then at least someone's gotta fall for this
I'll start with an easy one.

What's the longest an HDD has lasted you, /g/, and what's the shortest? Did they die unnanounced or slowly start to fail?
Gonna buy an enclosure for an HDD bought in 2008. 8 years of existence, 4-5 years of use, how much longer can this thing last? Working absolutely fine so far.
I am not trying to start a shit fest, although I have no doubt this thread will turn into one.
Many believe that Linux is far superior to Windows, and I've heard some good points. I've only ever dabbled in it, but I'm a CS student now and we've been told to familiarise ourselves with it somewhat extensively.
So, what makes linux so superior to Windows?
It's better in certain ways but not all. From the standpoint of a non-gaming shitposter I like that it is free, customizable, and open source. It isn't sending my data to the mothership. A lot of really smart people work on it.
I like windows too because it just works, compatible with everything, and it is good for word processing.
I like the python integration (idk if it's included in every distro, but we use openSUSE) because it makes my life easier since we're starting out on python, so I tend to get a lot more work done a lot faster this way, so I can see why people would choose to work on it
How big is your mobile data plan /g/?
> not using a grandfathered in unlimited plan
Technically AT&T is dicking me over by throttling it after 22GB and they won't let me buy a discounted phone every time i renew my contract anymore, but I'm not putting go of the plan.
>The majority of /g/ still uses Windows
There is no reason to use the Windows operating system in 2016. If your employer is forcing you to use proprietary software, you should seek an alternative or find a new job; they are oppressing your individual freedoms.
>Inferior default filesystem
NTFS is objectively garbage. NTFS relies on an MFT (Along with a copy of it) to store ALL your file metadata for the entire disk, so if these structures get corrupted then your data is top tier fucked....
Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
We want an OS that fucking works and is relatively easy to use.
I'm not promoting winblows 10 btw, fuck that botnet piece of shit. I'll be using windows 7 until something better comes along.
call me when linux and bsd can run battlefield 4 natively.
>There is no reason to use the Windows operating system in 2016.
Sorry, but the fact that all the software I use daily and have used daily for many many years all runs on Windows, not Linux, and not OSX either.
Your point is thus rendered moot, you fucking idiot.
Does /g/ still like tiny, comfy devices?
Pic related. Tell me your stories. Show me your devices.
I want a Viao device of some sort, I don't care if it is a Viao P, or one of the VGN ones, I just want one so bad.
At what age did you grow out of firefox?

TELEMETRY CAN BE DISABLED
no excuse not to use windows 10 now
