According to various people on /g/:
Unity: worse than Hitler
GNOME 3: pretty good but a bit bloated and infested with feminists
KDE: bloated, clunky cancer designed by Germans with terrible taste
XFCE: for people who think Windows 98 is the best OS ever
LXQt: not even good enough for a embedded dumb terminal xmonad/wmii/dwm: 2 month learning curve just to do basic things with your PC, wayland support never
Is there not a single desktop environment for Linux that's good?
The Mediatek MT6795 managed to score a huge 4536 points in the Multi-core benchmark, beating the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 which scored just 4345 points.
Both chipsets are 8-core, 64bit processors running 4 x Cortex A57 and 4 x Cortex A53 cores, and both were running Android 5.0 Lollipop for the benchmark.
MediaTek is such a fucking boss company. They haven't had the most money to throw around, but when they see a good idea coming they jump behind it full force. They're an HSA Foundation founding member, and delivered one of the first SoCs that complied with the provisional HSA spec at the time. Their true octacore designs deliver remarkably high sustained performances without massive thermal throttling issues. As an IC designer they're really leading the pack in a lot of respects.
Here in the west we're used to seeing Qualcomm or Apple dominate benches...

I think it's really sad that most computers today are used for consuming media and nothing else.
Back in the day, user manuals for new computers came with instructions on how to write your own programs.
Users were actually encouraged to learn how their computer works.
Now people are lucky if they don't accidentally install 30 spyware botnets while torrenting that latest hollywood movie, because they really have no idea what they're doing.
Post how you see it, /g/.
/SQT/ Stupid Questions Thread
If you can't be bothered to:
Then this thread is for you!
Post your simple/stupid questions here, ONCE.
DO NOT BUMP THE THREAD, You are NOT entitled to an answer.
This thread is for me. I use 7-Zip 9.38 x64 and it doesn't want to appear in context menu, Win 8.1 x64. I have tried to put these ticks responsible for this, but it didn't help. I have already tried to run it as an admin, still.
I just want tiny computers (not touchscreen phones/tablets) to become common again.
UMPCs were shitty even back in the day.
Sacrificing performance, battery life and practicality just for muh portability, they were not comfortable to use.
There's a reason they died out.
why we aren't hyping this?
What are some things I can do that are useful and/or fun with a 5.25 bay?

why the actual FUCK are there no female fighter pilots?
Nvidia is dominating desktop graphics and Intel is dominating integrated graphics.
Apple is also poking around a bit and may or may not switch to their own A-processors for their ultraportables in the future.
What can AMD do?
What area should AMD really focus on to stay relevant?
If things continue at the current rate, AMD as we know it will be kill.
>Nvidia gains more marketshare at the time when they release new cards and AMD doesn't
Is that supposed to be somehow surprising? Now if AMD doesn't regain marketshare after releasing the 300-series, THEN you might be onto something.
