While it is absurd to act like aesthetics in themselves challenge the material world, we should not discount art and good design. Good design makes for good propaganda. Art, too, can be uplifting. Yes this article is cringe. However, design sensibilities from yotsuba boards are not morally superior.

Yeah I still using it, in fact anyone still kinda using it cuz we can't just abandon our normies facade.

Also is it true that from Windows 10 until onwards (Windows 11), you don't need install any third-party or additional antivirus?

I still can't move on into Linux. Cuz it's not even my laptop, but my parents.

Nerds of old were not all Free Software types. The original PC nerds were closer to those messing with Arduino now where micros was an advanced electronics project. By the time you get to Refund Day in 1999, the average user was far more resistant to change even among those in IT and development and you get to the point there were "nerds" that only knew Widows and were scared of Unix and Linux.

Why do programmers like to pretend to have very specific skillsets and knowledge, and call themselves "frontend developers", "Javascript programmers" or even "React programmers" when in reality their knowledge and skills are applicable to almost everything programming related and they could easily do the job of almost every other programmer? Is this some trick to get higher wages and segment the market or is it just some internalized helplessness instilled by recruiters looking for "the perfect match" and employers unwilling to provide training?

insert is pretty useless tbh and the others can be bound to arrow keys or other keys closer to center if youre big dicked

I haven't used them in a while since I've had a 60% keyboard, and never bothered to learn them there, but I have a tenkeyless coming in soon, so I'll probably start using them again.

It's also surprising in how many places emacs bindings work, so it's not a big deal for serious use.
