Moore's Law is dead. Chips haven't gotten faster for shit lately. It will stay dead. Prove me wrong.
32 gb or 16 gb or 8 gb of RAM?
Basically I want to organize all my downloads over the years, and I want to serve them to any device I have or any device I may get.
I also want storage for making backup images of computers and phones.
Do I want NAS? I can't afford what's in the pic right now, is there other stuff like it?
Anything on sale today?
Pic related. R8 it.

Why is the MacBook Pro such a perfect drawing machine?
It's a personal computer that can use a tablet and run a drawing program.
Nothing to do with it being a Mac, all reasonably modern and reasonably "normal" laptops can do this.
The first smartphones/tablets also can already, if I recall correctly, but there the software isn't yet all that great...
Basically, this is entirely the usual.
Since you /g/eeks got dem supercomputers, what do you faggots play?
I have bought the new imac in black friday (excuse for my girlfriend so i can buy it even though there was no real discount) and i play league and maplestory on it.
Which VPN provider do you use?
What's the best OS/distro if you need something that just works and you've got only one hour for the install?
Windows takes too long to install and boot, OSX is too difficult to install on general hardware, no personal experience with BSD, but there are some very user friendly Linux distributions that can just work. My go-to distro for new users is still xubuntu.
You know the drill /g/
Ask stupid/small questions here
every so often, my c:/ drive gets bigger for no reason

So /g/, what's next after flat design?
Why isn't there a modern, feature-rich, reliable filesystem that is broadly supported on both *nix and Windows?
I use a small linux machine as a home file server, and most of the storage is on external USB3 drives. Usually, I access everything through samba shares to windows and mac machines on my network, and other protocols for dedicated devices (DLNA, chromecast, whatever). In these use cases, the filesystem doesn't matter, because every type of access I regularly use is agnostic to it. However, sometimes, such as when I travel, I need to be able to detach one of the hard drives and use it directly with my windows laptop. Right now, I have the drives formatted as NTFS, because it is the only modern filesystem that works out of the box with both windows and the linux distribution on my server. But of course, using NTFS on hard drives that are plugged into a linux machine 99% of the time makes no sense at all. I would much rather use a filesystem that properly supports user permissions and security, is stable, fast, etc.
Yet, it is my understanding that software to give ext2/3/4 support on windows is clunky at best. I need to be able to read and write to the drive when it is plugged into my windows laptop as if it were any other drive-lettered removable storage. I don't mind if I need to install a driver.
It seems like there is no right answer in this situation. There are mature, usable filesystems for every platform, and there are all kinds of cutting edge experimental filesystems that look great on paper, but there's nothing you can use if you want to reliably drift between platforms. Why is that?
Old websites that are still up.
I'll start with this one:
woooow. wow. very interesting. i wonder why they decided to keep that up. man that is cool. monitoring this thread for more gems. gosh, do I have anything to contribute? no, not really... wish i did...
RAID vs AHCI
As in you can't use your RAID controller unless AHCI is disabled?
AHCI wins preference hands down. You can do raid in software with minimal overhead.
Does anyone still use Ubuntu?
I use Windows.
When I need/ want to use Linux I use Fedora.
