What are you working on /g/?
Since CS programs aren't meant to prepare you for software engineering positions, then why don't they just go apeshit and teach Haskell instead of Java/C++/Python as the first language?
The year of Gnu-Linux will NEVER come

Literally anyone can assemble a computer.

Have you used this hipster meme? Is it just hype or does it have any uses? Or is it just a botnet?
ITT we build the ideal laptop
>good keyboard travel distance
>16 hours of normal battery
>less than an inch thickness
>full metal body
What's the point? Is it "who writes higher numbers" thread? I'll take it:
>312 EB SSD
>50 TB RAM
>29 inches foldable to 3 inches
> μm-precise trackpad with 100 point multi-touch
>2mm keyboard travel distance

Itt we posting your desktops, enjoing image preview in the file picker, humiliating gnomefags

Truecrypt was safe ^^
Rolling release distros.
So much work for such little outcome, except busting your system.
Slackware is great, too bad its packages don't have any mention about dependencies.
Not like I feel it's bad but they could have at least a simple text list, no need to resolve that automatically.
Android? iOS? Windows Phone? Sailfish? Tizen? Fuck that! We've got a new player joining the smartphone market!
The team describes Plasma Mobile as a way to turn your smartphone into a “fully open hacking device, just like a PC.” Those of you who have used KDE in the past might be familiar with the Plasma workspace by the name “KDE Plasma”. KDE Plasma is available for desktops, netbooks, media centers for TVs, tablets and now mobile devices. If offers an adaptable user interface and in the future it will also offer a rapidly-maturing software system that is developed with an open life cycle.
The software has built the Plasma workspace into it, and offers KWIN/Wayland and Voicecall/Ofono while also integrating Plasma Apps, Plasma Widgets, Ubuntu Touch Apps and the possibility of installing Sailfish and Nemo Apps. Plasma Mobile’s development team will be aiming to run many Qt/GTK/X11-based applications on the OS, and hope to implement package installation via the “apt-get install packagename” command. The platform will utilize libhybris on ARM devices while opting for DRM (Direct Rendering Manager) on Intel devices.
As of right now, Plasma Mobile only supports the Nexus 5 and the OnePlus One, along with some Intel-based devices. If you want to try this out on the Nexus 5, Plasma Mobile can be installed as a secondary ROM on your device thanks to MultiROM support. The team describes the state of MultiROM support for the Nexus 5 as “Solid” (so while it isn’t perfect, it’s past the ‘Experimental’ state).
Okay so I have idea. Not allergic to dust or anything, but I'm a lazy cunt who don't want to clean my home often. Will an air purifier catch a lot of dust, making it take longer for things to get dusty? I'm thinking an ionizer would work best; those old CRT TV's with glass screens were always covered with dust... any brand of air purifier specifically made for this purpose?
It'll help, but it probably won't eliminate dust. Mainly because you generate it continuously, a lot of its dead skin cells.
also you'll eventually have to clean the air purifier's filter.
It will eliminate about about 30% of the dust but you still need to clean somewhat regularly... (it will give you a extra week tho). I'm a lazy ass cuck myself so I usually use a mini vacuum to handle really bad areas.
Pro tip: make every angled or vertical surface as slippery as fuck that way you only have to vacuum. Also "high-shine" white furniture is a godsend for lazy people..
Moving my daily desktop back off Windows 10. I've used a few flavours of Debian but I am most comfortable with Arch. I saw some shilling of pic related recently, is it any good? Doesn't seem to be much info on the site, it doesn't even mention what package manager it uses, I'm assuming it's Debian based?
Recommendations for a comfy daily desktop.
I've got half a dozen VMs running at the moment, and I've used several OSes as primary in the past. I am downloading the gentoo and solus images at the moment but I have crappy internet and thought I'd get some opinions here while I wait.
I use a mac all day at work. The keyboard layouts piss me off.
How would I go about using only RAM as storage without a HDD assuming I load everything onto it at boot up then keep it powered on for months until I repeat this sequence?
so /g/, you've just put together your new computer, connected your monitor, mechanical keyboard, trackball, etc, and now its time to install the operating system. Which one of these do you pick and why
What is the best router brand?
Seems like most of them don't perform up to specs and have shitty software that isn't updated as soon as the next model hits, and contain cloud/botnet bullshit. I'd prefer one that supports an open source firmware but those usually don't perform as well or are missing features on a lot the newer routers, if they even run on them at all.
Also I live in an apartment building and there are more than 50 wireless networks in range. The 5 GHz band is still somewhat useable, but I need a router that is good with a lot of interference.
Rate my $600 self built computer ?
Also speccy rate thread.
Fuck off, we're not you're goddamn tech support you /v/ trash. End your shit life now, faggot.
Is he really the new Steve Jobs
I want to switch to Debian, problem is I have no spare hard drives except an external that I would only use for the OS install and nothing else. What's the best way to go about partitioning it so that I use say 10gb for the system and everything else like pictures and videos go on the other 990gb? Using Win7 atm and in the past I've always just used a completely empty hard drive when I switched operating systems
Install debian and partition it has needed in the installer.
in my head it would go something like this
\ root 50 GB EXT4
\home 50 GB EXT
\Storage Rest NTFS
Why is storage in NTFS you ask, it's because you might want to open it in windows.
I'm a retard and I need help
I'm doing a raid0 setup for two ssds
Should I flash my usb stick for GBT or MBR partition scheme for UEFI ?
A new, slim laptop without any ports, you need a wireless external adapter box for all ports
A flagship phone with 1 Gb of storage. Everything is on the cloud except the OS and a small cache of frequently used apps. Its only offered on carriers with small data caps and cloud storage prices are inflated for users of that device "to offer a better, more reliable experience."
Name a better watch.
Am I one of the few people who thinks Windows 10 actually looks good?

I want to mount a WiFi receiver on a boat so I can pick up city networks from kilometres away, but I can't find any info on making large WiFi receivers.
Could I convert a whole lot of coathangers into a long range WiFi receiver?
>buy 4TB hard disk
>linux lsblk show it as 3.7TB
is linux broken or was I scammed?
I am not too familiar with computers but I think it is due to the relation between base 10 and base 2 number scales to measure the storage size. They advertise 10^12 (4TB) but it is actually measured by 2^40 (3.64TB).
