Hello /g/! Which OS do you use and why? Name at least 2 points you like about your OS of choice, and perhaps one thing you'd wish to be improved. Personally, I use Arch Linux, as I like the 'freedom' element and building an OS from scratch, and it is very lightweight without going over the top, looking at you, Gentoo.
Debian Linux, because it's easy enough for an idiot like me to install/use and it comes with minimal garbage (unless you select the garbage during installation). One thing I wish would be improved is hardware support. Too often I have to search far and wide to get the drivers I need for some device or another. Usually networking.
>is very lightweight
unlike the user
time to lose some weight and become a superior /gentoo/man
What's the difference between a desktop environment and a window manager?
One is an environment in which to perform desktop tasks, the other is for managing windows
Desktop environments provide a suite of tools to do things whereas window managers control just control the windows and the desktop
For example, the KDE bundle comes with a bunch of different software like dolphin for file management, kate for notes and a login manager (kdm), but the window manager itself is just plasma desktop.
Window managers are just the things that draw the windows, like xfwm, openbox, etc. You will usually have to download extra things to get them to work functionally, like a panel/taskbar.
Who else /posting with Google FIber/ here? Just got mine installed. Feels great.
Any tips for stress testing a used laptop?
If it's used, it means it's already lasted many years, there's nothing to prove.
if you mean testing for overheating, you should open it up, clean out the dust and reapply thermal paste to the fan heatpipe assembly.
run memtest to check the ram
stress test the cpu and gpu with benchmarking programs
try writing a big file (4gb+) and a few hundred small files to see if the hdd shows any issues
but as was said above, buying a used laptop is usually not a good idea since there are many parts prone to failure
>buying a used laptop is usually not a good idea
If you know what you're doing then no.
Buying an HP Pavilion from that gamer kid who used it for the last 5 years constantly plugged in to play the epik gaymes is definitely not a good idea
But buying used business machines for 1/5th of the original price from corporations with minimal wear (mine was pretty much brand new) is a very good idea
I'm bored at work and I want to check the security cameras. I found an address they stream to and a port (81), but it's password protected with a little login screen. There's also a couple cameras that show up on the network, but they're also protected. What recommendations do you have as far as gaining access to the cameras? I'm not going to ask someone for the password and I have quite a bit of time on my hands. The network security is modest at best and no one monitors the traffic.
Are you 14 or 15?
Try default passwords
I was staying in a motel one time and the idiots were "charging" for broadband overuse, yet they had a home modem and an ip camera connected to it, all with the login admin/admin
What is the best website to create a secure personal email? Gmail? Yahoo?

at her age, that means she's probably a smoker since she was a teen - most women who have tits like that do. Nicotine destroys elastin and causes premature tit sag. if she's making decent cash, get a tit job, she's look much better...
Share tips on ricing.
Ricing GNU/Linux is not made by only choosing themes and colors, but what software goes in your computer. "Display Managers" are the login screens, "Window Managers" are the part drawing the borders, colors, etc, and "File Managers" are what handles how you browse your machine. More info:

As someone who's still running on Nehalem and with some sub-par R9 2xx gpu, would you say it's a good choice to upgrade right now?
This skylake stuff makes me wet, as well as the M.2 SSDs even though for some reason the DDR4 latency seems pretty abysmal.
Question is, is it wise to update that stuff between now and christmas or am I too soon for some game-changing tech in the pipes coming out soon?
What am I in for?
Apt or pacman?
Functional programming is shit
You're throwing away basically all progress is computer science by using a language in which an efficient implementation of quicksort is impossible
>idiomatic functional programming
>need to put few images in a pdf
>lookup those pdf printing software
>not a single one that's not or doesn't contain adware
this world needs to burn
Doesn't windows have one by default?
