Still rattled from the dude who cut me off yesterday while I was biking to work, and then threw a fucking tantrum because I touched his truck.
...and I can virtually guarantee that this guy has gone on at least one extended rant about "snowflakes."
ugh. can I just go to work without somebody trying to kill me?
Surprised by the lukewarm reaction to the Chrome Slate.
When it launches, it's going to be (FAR AND AWAY) the best Linux laptop/tablet on the market (assuming the touted ability to run real Desktop Linux apps holds true).
I can see them selling a lot of them to developers who want something other than a MacBook.
Want to try KDE stuff on something quite different? Haiku, an open source system inspired by BeOS, has just turned beta after 6 years of development and bug-squashing. Many KDE apps work out of the box!
Finally took the plunge and bought a desktop PC to replace my aging 2011 MacBook.
1) Linux on the desktop isn't bad. Granted, I had to install a prerelease kernel and video drivers -- but it was surprisingly painless.
2) The high-end Intel NUCs are the machines we've been asking Apple to build for decades. It's a screaming-fast machine in the Mac Mini form factor, but with better expandability. The build quality is incredible.
3) This thing has a SKULL on it. Are we the baddies?
