Just bought a pre-Lenovo Thinkpad with 512MB of RAM
Which WM is the lightest?
I need a "for dummies"-tier guide since all the ones I found in Google say shit I don't even know. Fucking useless sticky as usual.

So /g/ I'm building a 1070 rig and want to buy a new monitor as well.
Most games I will play will run at 1440p. My question is if I buy a 4k monitor will 1440p and 1080p look worse on it than they would a monitor with native resolution?
In theory Full HD on a 4k display should look the same as Full HD on a similar Full HD display.
Because of the pixel ratio.
Depending on the built in scaler 1440p could actually look worse than 1080 on a 4k monitor.

Well maybe you shouldn't have plugged the GPU into your CPU. Next time use the PCIe slots. It'll actually fit in there. They're also rated to carry up to 250 Watts if necessary. I don't think your CPU socket puts out any power that your CPU doesn't use.
Why is Ubuntu so insistent on forcing bloat onto your computer?
Thunderbird isn't some fucking super important dependency
what went wrong?
Why hasn't there been a mentionable push from any company or group for a standardized laptop form factor spec akin to the ATX/ITX family for desktop PCs? It's pretty much the only reason why we can't reasonably build our own laptops now.
Can you imagine how nice it'd be to be able to select motherboard, screen, case, battery, etc from a huge variety of off-the-shelf parts? Wouldn't it be amazing to build a laptop to your exact specs instead of having to live with whatever tradeoffs and concessions a prebuilt manufacturer has decided are acceptable?
because then consumers could build their own for cheap.
the laptop market is like the phone market corners get cut everywhere except the most obvious places to ensure planned obsolesence and high prices.
there are ways to get a barebones notebook and parts already.
however you will need to deal with parts from brands you never heard off and from questionable sources.
dont expect to get one with an intel or amd cpu let alone an actual gpu.
Desktop PC's are actually unusual in this regard. Very little in consumer electronics (or even in industrial electronics for that matter) is designed to be as interchangeable as PC parts are. The only reason laptops have swappable parts at all is due to developments from the PC side forcing compatibility on manufacturers. Because trust me, they would far rather be forcing you to buy your hard drives from them.
I dunno, I could see AMD getting behind a laptop form factor spec if it meant getting a piece of the laptop market beyond their current position of $200 walmartbooks. It could give them an edge over Intel if it takes off, too, since in that case motherboard manufacturers would have AMD laptop motherboards on the shelves for a good year or two before Intel would be able to properly respond.
Just letting you know, if your arm is rubbing against a plastic arm rest all day, eventually you will get ugly gross cysts under your skin. I noticed it when part of my left arm that's always rubbing against the plastic arm rest, in that specific area, developed cysts. I have a leather computer chair now, it's probably safer and healthier.

Hi, is there a program which I can show it certain type of images like white pens, then it makes an image algorithm which I can use for google and it finds white pens?
Yes, a good algorithm for this is boosted cascades combined with wavelets transforms.
Can be bit tricky and takes a lot of time to train an algorithm with good performance for certain tasks (can be around 7 hours or 10 days, depending on the data and CPU), but it's usually one of the best solutions for this kind of problem.
Did anyone EVER noticed that on noctua heatsink, their logo is written in mirror image?
Why is that ;d
