reasons why linux sucks #405:
>go to change mouse settings in control panel
>control panel opens in non-root; doesn't ask for or allow easy path to opening control panel app in root
>any changes I apply will be removed on restart
>no offered documentation on how to get around this
>i now have to go figure this shit out myself instead of just using the fucking laptop
if you think this is acceptable OS behavior in any way, kys.
Best way to put Windows onto my Macbook Pro?
Should I duel boot or use a parallel desktop? And what's the easiest way to go about either? Just want it for gaming online with my buds since they're both building PCs and I'm too poor to afford two computers.

You know everyone with a specialization in anything has this problem when others talk to them about said specialization. Farmers, chemists, cooks, whatever. Computer shit is just a little more abstract and way newer than any of them. What's the problem with just clarifying for a person what they were mistaken about? Especially in this screenshot, the Web dev guy is in a position as the expert. Only some hotheaded asshole would take a well worded correction badly.
Have you ever destroyed an OS for fun? Just load one up in virtual machine or on a trashy old rig that's unused, and then see how much damage you can do through popups and obtrusive programming before the OS can barely function?
It's surprisingly more enjoyable than I thought it would be.
