>why size of 'i' is equal 4 bytes when the function var() is containing 16 bytes strings?
i is a int (you just initialized it one line above), and ints are 32bit=4bytes in 32bit programs.
Just because you assign the return value of a function that uses a string to i doesn't mean that it is changing it's type (in a static typed programming language like this).
Is the GTX 950 worth it?
Would it help accelerate Linux adoption on desktop if there was a way for normies to easily test out what Linux has to offer?
For example, a distro that offered usage tutorial at the start (similar to what Android does on it's first run), and use VirtualBox as wrapper, so that it can be installed on Windows and then ran in fullscreen mode, as if it was one of windows programs.
So normie would download 1-2GB windows executable (or just few KB downloader), get simple installer with one big "Explore Linux" button, wait few moments for progress bar to fill and then virtualised distro starts in fullscreen and offers a tutorial, which explains basic Linux concepts, how it offers multiple desktop environments and similar shit.
Last part of tutorial is how to close VM with distro offering "Return to windows" button instead of "Turn off" button.
Had to get that out of my head, plz upvote and subscribe
>inb4 normies can already do that with WUBI
still requires computer restart and offers user to fuck his own data up
>sounds great, i can make logo :^)
Great, send it to email@example.com and ask if it's inane enough for killer GNU plus Linux distro.
I still think that described idea would be more effective way of promoting Linux than those cringy videos Linux fundation makes:
Fuck, I want to pull my brains out every time new one comes out.
bonus round: find tux on babe
The only normie thing linux lacks is a DE that looks and works exactly like windows.
>windows look and feel
>taskbar at the bottom
>executables (without removing the software centre)
>NTFS (come on, just adopt it)
the look is most important for normies. if someone can do a Windows DE, i can personally guarantee that Linux's market share will become ten-folds.
OK /g/, what 1TB single-platter HDD should I buy? Will be used mainly for storage, won't run 24h/day. Will picrel do?

HGST End of Story.
Thinking this is anywhere close to true. Seagate drives will fail early, and fail often. WD is better, but still shit. In ten years running a set of servers for my business, I can't recall a single HGST drive biting it.
I have a HGST it was dying on me. WD has never failed me. I have the HGST somewhere it's a 1TB drive, I'll probably re-use it soon. It was making grinding noise, but was still working, CryptoDisk or whatever it's called said it was on Caution
Cramming for finals and windows 10 decides to force update my PC.
Why is linux so good?
Hey guys... Do you ever thought about creating a self sustaining magnet based motor that creates electricity? Well I have... Uses Tesla's copper coil idea and a magnetbased self sustaining motor...you just push it once to start... The magnets will do the rest...
So guys whats a good joystick, getting real into this game and thinking of playing other flight sim games.
What does /g/ think about pirating software? (including games)
I think I may have a problem, /g/.
I just upgraded from an R9 280x to a Fury, and it seems like I'm getting worse framerates in games using the same settings at 1080p. Could /g/ offer any help with this?
Why only *buntu and other distros based on it get the correct implementation for mobile discrete graphic drivers right, while other distros strugle with it?
Maybe because bumblebee is outdated and not developed anymore?
Last week I compared my Arch with bumblebee with Ubuntu and in the first I got around 35 fps in dota 2 while the last one got me 120 fps.
This post is not a joke, I'm actually that autistic. I need to know something for personal reasons:
Do non-tech normies know what Firefox is? As in, does it at least sound familiar to them? I would guess it does since it's so huge but normies never cease to surprise me. I'm talking about full blown "why are you so quiet?"-kind of normies, the ones that dont give a damn about technology at all.
that's what I would guess, that it sounds like a big thing to them and not nerdy like gentoo, arch linux, and shit like that
however, the other day my sister told me that "google doesn't work" and it meant that google chrome didnt start kek
People of /g/, I’m in need of some good advice here.
Basically I’m at a weird point in my life, I’m in college studying something that is losing my interest more and more every day, and during the last 3/4 years I studied stuff I was interested in on my own.
My problem now is: I’m pretty good at a lot of stuff, but I have no idea how to make any of these things into more than an interest, given that the positions I’d like to apply for are extremely specific and mostly require a degree in computer science or similar (which has nothing to do with my course...
