Does the failure of Linux desktop prove that communism will never work?

feels like a barely functioning toy compare to the commercial options. they argue over irrelevant differences, constantly reinvent the wheel, never innovate, barely handles the basics.

it has no profit motive to unite or to sort boring problems.

>Choices on behalf of the user
Yes some choices are very, dare I say, stupid. There's a popular meme about linux UI/freetard graphic design and etc. I would say arrogance too, detachment from what users actually desire, mixed with a degree of narcissism "I'm gonna make my own le-arch-forkerinOS" instead of contributing to something already great

They are absolutely pathetic.
Never forget that Apple was in danger of going out of business in the 90s and they were kept afloat only due to the sheer cuckedness of their fans who kept throwing money at their overpriced and outdated (especially classic MacOS) products just because of the rainbow apple logo. And apple doesn't even treat these users well, sometimes even going to the extent of suing some blogger appletard users for sharing product rumours.
I don't think it's possible for there to be a more examplary epitome of corporate bootlicking than macfags. They don't just do it for free, they literally pay premium prices from their own pockets for it.

I tried switching to Debian a few years ago and really liked it but no matter what I tried my G13 refused to work with it, and I rely on that too much. If only there was a G13 with on-board memory for the keys.

>imagine giving anybody remote control access to the temperature settings in your home
If you can't install your own firmware on your "smart" thermostat, so you have total control over your heater, you have to rip it out and replace it with a mechanical valve. The fact that this was even physically possible proves criminal intent.

How does anyone use the APP? I have tried to use that app over and over again and i just can't get adjusted to it.
This isn't a knock on the devs or the hard work they have done or the people who use it. It has done a lot of good and with out the app we very well wpuld have probably been put on a different time line where the forces pf evil and the bunker won out.

That being said, I just don't get it. Aesthetically the app is very jagged and rough on my eyes. When in comparison to just the normal browser view I still get to pick my themes and the themes look like they do on my desktop machine. There's also just the general browsing experience. The browser allows me to judt browse the board as if i was on my desktop, but, the app just feels counter intuitive to the browsing habits of imageboards i have acquired over the years.

Can some one explain to me?spurdoSpurdo

Catalog mode feels pretty nice to browse the boards

And I think you can change themes in the settings (although they're not the same as the browser)

>Firefox is owned by the Mozilla Corporation.
>The so-called Mozilla Foundation is the parent but Firefox is part of a taxable for-profit entity.
>Further, Mitchell Baker seems to be the CEO of, guess which one, BOTH. Unbelievable.
>>In 2018 she received a total of $2,458,350 in compensation from Mozilla, which represents a 400% payrise since 2008.[14]On the same period, Firefox marketshare was down 85%. When asked about her salary she stated "I learned that my pay was about an 80% discount to market. Meaning that competitive roles elsewhere were paying about 5 times as much. That's too big a discount to ask people and their families to commit to."[15]
>>By 2020 her salary had risen to over $3 million, while in the same year the Mozilla Corporation had to lay off approximately 250 employees due to shrinking revenues. Baker blamed this on the Coronavirus pandemic.[16]

Tor Browser is based on firefox. It's not a fork, just firefox with minor modifications, so, if it isn't backdoored already, it will eventually be. Use links or w3m. links2 if you absolutely need a graphical browser (you don't)

Tl;dr engineers, people working on privacy features, browser security and the like. Relocated workers primarily moved to so-called "Products and Operations team", according to Ars Technica.

I'm cushty on IceCat 78.11 right now, but I really don't know what I'll do once EOL hits in October. The new UI is ugly, unintuitive, and leans further into the trend of removing customization for no reason as well as favoring form over function.

What is that supposed to mean? I just said that in tmux I'm trying to copy text and it doesn't copy. It only copies in Alacritty but not in any other term I tried including st.

 No.9181

Try highlighting the text then middle clicking where you want to paste it?

 No.9183

>>9181
In tmux, they way it seems to work is that the highlighted text gets copied and then the highlight disappears. At least that's how it works in Alacritty. Another thing that works there is going into the Tmux Copy mode, selecting text and pressing enter and then it is copied. And yet this doesn't work on any other term I tried. It doesn't make any sense, I can't even google it because there's no relevant results for any of the searches I tried.
