what distro of linux is the best for a beginner in linux?

Yes Debian is good. The only time I really hated it though was when I had to compile something from source. Ended up manually compiling a fuckton of libs, installing them in ~/.local and messing around with LD_LIBRARY_PATH and still was getting fucked out of blue. Uncool

>>614 But Windows is neither the cheapest nor most useful option. Schools use it because they don't know any better and because there are myths about how Linux is unnecessarily complicated or that it breaks often. Schools and governments also don't care about software ethics or anything like that. As long as they can teach kids and spy on you, it makes little difference.

>>610 wrong, derivative works mean something that is not infinging upon copyright laws, do you really think that copying the entire compiler and adding one feature (aka forking) is allowed? naive fuck, one day you will sell your soul accidentally if you keep at it the way you are. >By the way, I noticed you failed to answer any of my questions and instead made a (wrong) guess at what my thoughts were on specific subjects. Please refrain from doing so in the future. It is bad form Do not accuse me of random shit you crazy. >Rust is designed to ensure that neither stack overflows nor allocation failures will occur through a robust ownership system, lifetimes, bounds checking and other methods. this simply doesnt work at runtime, do you even program? >Please do explain why you think that Rust is not free, since I've addressed this point in my previous post already. see above >How does third-party software that is not part of the Rust project impact the freedom of the Rust project? It doesn't, that's how. the rust environment is proprietary and that is what matters. >How is the Windows operating system being pushed to the masses? yo did the bot just break? LULUUL >>613

>>615 >For a large portion of usecases Linux is more than enough. Then why aren't they using Linux over Windows? >What are you going to do next, mention flat earth out of nowhere or some shit? Anon, claiming that the only reason that Windows is being used in governmental and education facilities is because the government has made backroom deals with Microsoft is literally the definition of a conspiracy: "Conspiracy: a secret plan by a group to do something unlawful or harmful" >No, but if people weren't manipulable and operated completely rationally and chose the most optimal products, the world would be much different. I agree. Alas, the majority of the world shall for the next foreseeable future remain inhabited by normalfags. >>617 In my anecdotal experience, there are three major reasons why businesses and schools rather make use of Windows over Linux: 1. A network of Windows PCs is easier to configure by people who have no experience managing networks. 2. Microsoft will deal with ensuring your machines are always up-to-date and secure against exploits, as opposed to having to do so yourself. 3. If you have an issue that you cannot resolve yourself, you can call Microsoft for support. In other words, it is a service issue. It's not the OS, it's the service that Microsoft provides besides the OS. >>618 >do you really think that copying the entire compiler and adding one feature (aka forking) is allowed? Yes. That's precisely what it means. If you do not believe me, you're more than welcome to create an issue over at https://github.com/rust-lang/rust and ask if you are allowed to fork the entire or specific parts of the project.

my strategy is the only one that doesn't fail: i don't exist. literally. even if they had orders from all the major institutions in the world to spy on me they would never find anything important because there isn't anything important in a life that doesn't even exist. datamine me as much as you like, i'll laugh at the wasted electricity

What's wrong with normal Arch? The only reason some people "hate" systemd is because someone on youtube or 4ddit told them that it's bad. If you use any Chrome or Firefox-based browser that's a piece of software that's 9999 times more bloated and 9999 times more vulnerable than systemd.
>>
>>557 There were multiple occasions where my machine wouldn't probably turn off because off systemd plus dinit is faster.
>>
>>557 https://artixlinux.org/news.php#The_xz_package_has_been_backdoored The popular the software is the more hackers attention it gets You are right about Chrome and Firefox but unfortunately we don't have a good replacement for them but with the init system we have replacements

I recently bought untested Thinkpad T60 for reasonable price. I cleaned it and made a dual boot Windows XP and Slackware Linux. I was fortunate enough that it was just a missing HDD which I got a spare SSD to use.
>>
>>565 By coincidence I also bought a T60 with a missing hard drive recently I upgraded the RAM with 4GB (only 3 GB can be used unfortunately ;-;) and CPU on mine and put Arch on it.
>>
>>566 I never have a thought to replace the CPU unless it's possible and a good upgrade. I did bought 2GB ram to make it 3GB overall. Post your arch desktop please!
>>
>>567 I upgraded mine to a Core 2 Duo T7600 which is the fastest one it can take I'll post my Arch desktop when I finish ricing DWM
>>
>>568 Thank you and good luck on ricing DWM!

Emacs syntax highlighting is as if it were not even there, it escapes me how you guys can navigate that in anything above 1000 lines. Macros are neigh indistinguishable from normal text.

The only thing I hate is the slow emerge times , but it's because I have a shitty laptop Surprisingly this is the most stable I've felt using a linux distro

You guys just made me interested in gentoo again. I used it for a couple years back when i was a noob and exploring. It was a bit difficult to set up then , over 10hrs of compilation. LOL this time it'll be much easier

i love gentoo and i used it for years, but i got tired of having to compile everything, takes too damn long. i use debian now.
