Why do you hate me so much /g/? Without Ubuntu, Linux would still be in the dark ages.
I quite like Ubuntu. I wish Unity had more flexibility but overall it is pretty good. I don't like how the dash is so fucking picky over shortcuts though. Pisses me off when I see random shit in their because I locked something to the dock. Also I wish Nautilus had more features. To be honest all the standard file managers on Linux are shit though.
I also quite like Ubuntu GNOME but GNOME Shell still feels quite a way off from being something I could use every day.

Recommend me a good microphone to do voiceovers and whatnot. Been looking at a AT2020. I'll be plugging it into a Steinberg UR22 Mk II. I want a desk stand for it too. The USB AT2020 comes with a nice little tripod but can't find it separate anywhere and it's not included in the standard passive AT2020 version. Any other worthwhile options or recommendations of how to mount the mic?
Booted Kali off my usb drive, but I can't connect with my network.
Using a typical mac80211to connect, is there a way to enable it?
Yes I'm a noob, gotta start somewhere right?
How the fuck is this possible when I pay for 60mbps internet?
>straight from the modem is about 20-25 mbps
>wifi is this
Should I call charter and bitch, or is it really this shitty?
Check phone line or coax.
Mostly those cables are causing problems.
>Linux breaks for no apparent reason
>Hey retard it's your own fault because...
Nope. Happens even to people who do Linux tutorials for years.
That's why this trash will never be popular on the desktop.

Hi /g/ this is a stupid question thread so I have a very stupid question to ask. I have been using Github for only a small amount of time abd have started seeing alot of programs that have no executable file to run them, for example: https://github.com/Partinarel/map-make/tree/master/map_explore/map_explore. I would really appreciate it if someone could explain how to run these or even just point me towards a site that explains it. Thanks and sorry for being stupid.
Is there a laptop manufacturer that won't screw me over? Yeah I know
>not building a nice desktop
But fuck it. My last two laptops both went obsolete because the manufacturer never updated their drivers, and drivers from each individual component manufacturer didn't work. Is there any company that sells something I'll actually be allowed to update two years from now?

If you're watching a movie on a 60 Hz monitor, you're not actually watching the movie at all, but only a vague approximation of it.

Do you think data hoarding is real? I sort of think so, I have 5 hard drives, two are filled to the brim with random images and media and the other is 2TB of anime.
What about you?
I have about 4tb of movies and tv shows that I've accumulated over the past year.
Some of them I haven't watched, nor do I intent to. Just got them on freeleech and wanna retain that sweet seeding bonus.

How can other OS's even compete?
>How can other OS's even compete?
By being cheap enough for the general public to afford them.
Yes there are poor people who can't afford macs and yes you can feel better than them if you want to. Doesn't change the fact that producing cheap computers lets you compete with Apple.
I use computer and os interchangeably here because you pretty much have to buy a mac to use Mac OS

I might have to get an XPS 15 since I can't find anything else even close to what I want in a new laptop.
The X260 is almost perfect, but it's gimped by single-channel RAM (and all the other modern X-series compromises).
Maybe I should just keep using my Latitude E6510 and wait to upgrade until laptops catch up with what I want from them.
What Bible software does /g/ use?

I, as a confirmed catholic, thoroughly enjoy the opensource fire program. It allows me to destroy literature which defies our supreme being, while also letting me be blissfully ignorant since its human architecture compatible.
