How does your desktop look like /t/? How ricy is it?

>>79 not very, mostly use it for anti-CIA work. Konqi has brought me nothing but continous joy in my KDE™® experience, I hope he brings you the same.

This is my desktop. I had to censor my name in the terminal.
>>
>>117 I could understand buying a MacBook or an iPhone, which albeit overpriced and extremely bad, give you social validation. But an Apple desktop that's going to stay in your room and no one is going to see... why did you get one?

>>129 is this a clap phone I see?
>>
>>130 It's technically not a flip phone (you can't open and close it), but it is in fact a feature phone/dumbphone. I hate satanphones ("smartphones") with a burning passion.
>>
>>132 why?
>>
>>133 A lot of reasons. But the main ones are that they're extremely bad for privacy, the OS gives you little freedom (and it's hard to install other OS's), and I don't want to be one of those zombies constantly looking at their phone. A phone should be just a phone, not a computer. For calls, I use a phone. For internet, etc, I use my computer.
>>
>>129 Can you post your wallpaper? I love it
>>
>>145 Thanks!
>>
>>122 Considering the screenshot provided reveals the machine is a MacBook Pro, anon probably wanted an unequivocally superior laptop and trackpad experience as opposed to settling for a heavier and thicker Windows PC with a trackpad half the size, inferior and/or limited gestures, pre-installed HP/Dell/Lenovo/Acer/etc. bloatware, shorter battery life, no seamless integration between hardware and software, among a plethora of other advantages only seen in Apple's offerings. Lack of ports is not an argument any longer, as anon has the M1 Pro model, which returns the SD Card slot, MagSafe, and the HDMI port. Plus, Apple's pre-installed applications smoke the ones found in Windows or Linux distributions, imo.
>>
>>170 We get it. You're a richfag who hates freedom.
>>
>>171 Even famous *nix devs use MBPs.
>>
>>189 Because they're corporate golems who don't really care about what they're doing and just want social acceptance.
>>
>>193 So you're saying basically everyone besides RMS is a sellout. That's convenient.
>>
>>194 Cool strawman. How much did Apple pay you for this post?
>>
>>79 I literally just use Cinnamon, I don't care about your addy fueled Zoomershit rice. Ricing is for low IQ niggas who want to feel smart
>>
>>170 Applefags always cope and seethe about how good their laptops are and then get blown the fuck up by a keyboard on a 20 year old thinkpad that had soda spilled all over it.
>>
>>129 Based 4:3 moniter
>>
>>203 5:4*
>>
>>205 Oops! Sorry it's hard to tell the difference sometimes
>>
>>197 Nobody says Macbooks have good keyboards. They'll readily admit the older keyboards Apple had were better. The ThinkPad keyboard pales in comparison to any actual mechanical keyboard. ThinkPads today also suck which is why the newer ThinkPads aren't even part of the discussion unless you're talking the Chinese homebrew ones which have the old style keyboard.

>>197 I was hoping I wouldn't see this lingo used and this type of attitude here on hikari3.ch. It seems that it's just the default across all imageboards indiscriminately?

Gnome is kinda comfy, to tell you the truth
>>
>>252 what lingo are you talking about? the apple hate or _friend? the former is expected in any hobby as elitist as desktop ricing, the latter is imo gatekeeping the kinds of people that want to censor derogatory speech. my political beliefs are pretty normal but if I cant say roody-poo on a website its time to leave
>>
>>291 LOL word swaps are fine imo to kick out the chuds, as long as its lighthearted

I did a dual-boot yesterday which I installed Windows 10 (I use Linux Mint as my main distro). This OS is just for only steam games.

>>332 whoa you got a really good setup anon... don't forget your windows opened hihihi~

Did this thread die? Aw man... Here's my very humble machine. Please don't judge it too harshly. ( つ Д `)
>>
>>391 That's a decent amount of rice you got there. I feel like Lain fans would appreciate it more than anybody else. :)
>>
i've been meaning to post my desktop here, but i feel like it's boring in comparison to everyone else's lol
>>
>>392 Ah thanks! I do like Lain myself. It's really interesting and I could talk about it for hours. I'm not knowledgable on the whole "ricing" thing... I just like when my desktop looks pretty. >>393 I struggled to gain the confidence to post mine, because it's not as nice as others and I thought I'd be judged. You should post yours. What do you have to lose? :D
>>
>>
>>394 Did you write any articles or something like that on Lain, then? There is an on-going zine project called Lainzine and I suppose they are open for any submisssions.
>>
>>396 No, I want to, but I'm afraid it'll sound stupid and won't be good enough. :(
>>
>>397 It's not very realistic that a whole 2 hour talk would be full of stupidity. :) Don't go that harsh on yourself, at least not before trying.
>>
>>391 You missed the name in the panel title. Lovely setup, though, I am a sucker for retro grays.
>>
>>400 ...Oh my God. That's embarrassing. I'm so stupid. :(

>>395 comfy.

My rice, just right. I specially like the lemonbar. Planning on porting it to wayland, screw all the others. LOL

>>332 also i like ur wallpaper

>>79 OP here. I'm currently trying out Hyprland. I'll share the results after I finish configuring it
>>
>>435 What is a good way to get started with NixOS and what are some good tips for it? The declarative nature of NixOS seems so attractive to me.
Your fortune: (YOU ARE BANNED)
>>
>>436 I'd say just try it out yourself! Install it in a VM, dual-boot, or even go full bare-metal Try to familiarize yourself with the concepts of how NixOS works (what derivations are, the /nix/store, the Nix language, etc.) by watching tutorials or reading guides. The information is quite scattered and sometimes incomplete, so I think it's really the best for you to learn by trial and error. You can start by trying to replicate your current configuration in NixOS or install Nix as a separate package manager on your PC before trying the operative system
>>
Here is my gentoo desktop
>>
>>436 As another NixOS user, i think the biggest tip is to really learn how Nix works as >>439 said. Because the OS is declarative, system configuration is handled much differently than the other Linux distributions I've used. Setting up development environments has also been a bit of a hassle sometimes. Honestly, I might switch off it sometime because the declarative nature has caused me more issues than benefits.

Not insanely fancy but I like it

>>461 What's your motivation for using Windows 11?
>>
>>462 Family bought me a new laptop came pre-installed with windows 11 I don't prefer it by any means, but a gift is a gift
>>
>>464 Why don't you just install something else?
>>
>>464 I am pretty sure that the person who gifted you that computer did not explicitly mean for you to use windows, they probably do not even know that alternatives exist. Uninstallling windows will boost your computer's lifespan, impede partyvans from spying on you and is also a much more secure environment since almost nobody makes malware for linux.
>>
>mind went instantly to linux I meant to say that any other maintained os would be a much more secure environment and give you all of those benefits, although a linux-based os would be best as you could play games on steam.
>>
>>465 late reply I know. Not to derail this thread of course but the reason is just lack of experience with Linux or other OS alternatives (which yes can only ironically enough be solved with just jumping into it and trying out Linux :v). >>470 >" Uninstallling windows will boost your computer's lifespan" Interesting and in my case honestly the most convincing argument outside of computer freedom. I'll atleast install Mint on a flashdrive to try it out then anon
>>
>>473 >Not to derail this thread of course but the reason is just lack of experience with Linux or other OS alternatives Doesn't have to be Linux, could be just Windows 10 or 7,

why not
>>
>>134 Any mobile phone is bad for privacy, they all track everywhere you go and everything you say. This isn't some kind of conspiracy nonsense either, do your research you'll find this out to be the truth.
>>
>>502 i wonder if it's even necessary to own one. i don't have one but i don't get out much so i don't know if the whole world is basically being forced to use them
>>
>>503 Smartphones and credit/debit cards are part of the west's social credit system. Without them there are some stores and services you won't have access to, but your life will be better without them.

>>414 That's coz it is comic sans. Looks really neat on a topbar

Me proud of it
>>
>>504 What fucking shops stop you from using them without having a fucking mobile phone? I've never seen that. Although I do see your point about debit/credit cards but even then most shops still allow you to pay by cash, but what are you on about it being a social credit system, do you have schizophrenia?
>>
>>504 what a huge drama. Go live in desert i dunno or somewhere where only donkeys shit around what makes u struggle so much with civilization also post your desktop
>>
>>518 really? I still haven't seen any (offline) shops that don't support cash payment. In fact, I've seen shops actively discouraging using credit/debit cards to pay, at least around my area.

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!
