kill yourself boomer
we will come and steal the headphone jacks out of your life


Looks like you never used a mouse with a short wire. I still dread the feeling of trying to move the mouse but getting stuck.


>we will come and steal the headphone jacks out of your life
Bourgeois degeneracy. Pay more for less (quality).


USB extension cables are still a way better option.
They sometimes come with a wireless mouse :^)

Never wireless.

I use it daily and it's great. It never crashes on me and it's easy to use.

The only problem is that it's picky with hardware. You can buy an old thinkpad to run it on and if has an Ivy Bridge CPU, you can disable Intel ME. IMHO disabled ME and Qubes gives you the most secure computer for daily use.

What do you guys think of Qubes?

Son of a petit-bourg spotted
No, anon, that's completely unreasonable and won't scale.
Whonix? Sure
TailsOS? definitely

Qubes OS? No.
But it is great for superusers and the security/privacy emphasis.


which is better for GPU passthrough fedora or qubes (how do i make the usb persistent)

im reluctant to try out redhat since they are the ones in control they force the linux standards (based on what i leaned from past chan boards)
is Xen CoC compiliant? i hope not since its not systemD based right? (rumors has it that the linux kernel contains obfuscated code)
i wish calub veim (computernewb) shared their KVM configuration since they can run nested VT-D android emulator inside the VM and DX11 games run perfectly fine how did they even do it? sorry if this is offtopic

will it work on normal generic hardware since i bought a new motherboard from a repair shop

>>8740 (apologies if i look like a glowie)
how do i disable the other security features on qubes its too inconvenient and im afraid of data loss from encryption
gpu passthrough is hard on ubuntu and manjaro i coudn't understand the tutorial (i only need VM isolation)

unraid seems promising but i dont like web interfaces also where can i find a crack


>which is better for GPU passthrough fedora or qubes (how do i make the usb persistent)
Fedora because you have one less thing in the way (no hypervisor), but you can do GPU passthrough to Fedora VMs in Qubes.


Qubes uses systemd in dom0. I read about some guy developing a fork that uses systemvinit, but that hasn't progressed into anything that you can download.

Thankfully, there is isolation between VMs, even your AppVMs and dom0. So most security problems with systemd in dom0 (which to anyone else reading, has not proven to be less secure than other init), will be stuck in dom0.

It's possible to set up a systemd-less templateVM and make your AppVMs systemd-less. It's not easy, but it's easier than making dom0 systemd-less.

As for the code of conduct, every Linux distro seems to use the same CoC template (except maybe Apartheid Linux.) It's the community that brings drama to the distro or not. So far, it has a good community, and most of the devs are hobbyists or they get independent grants. There's no corporation like Red Hat behind the scenes.

>will it work on normal generic hardware since i bought a new motherboard from a repair shop

Probably. Most of the problems are with older hardware without hardware assisted virtualization.

> built for Linux-libre which has no MAC system and is unsuitable for security reasons because of that
Elaborate? Linux's mandatory access controls are not free software?


No, they are free software. It's just that nobody maintains a version built for the libre kernel. It shouldn't be THAT hard to do because I don't think the things Linux-libre cleans out should overlap with SELinux/AppArmor all that much, but nobody has bothered to do it yet.


Does anybody like this way to browse their music this way?
What are some current year music apps that have this feature

>tfw born in the wrong generation

well then /tech/ tell what is your favourite music player to use on ya phone

preferably an open source great looking one

might be a little more trouble
but it's mostly just for the aesthetic and feel like you're shuffling through an actual catalogue of albums



consider getting a dedicated music player that handles http://rockbox.org
most popular choice is a used 5th generation ipod


How many albums do you have? 10?


idk i have 800 mp3s but i am ready to sacrifice functionality for aesthetics

oh definitely if i ever get money
something with big storage and big battery that only plays music

the underlying technology is more or less fine but in recent years i rarely find non-software IRC channels that aren't just a shit circlejerk of cunts who've been on there since 2001, which has about one conversation a day which you've got no hopes of breaking into because people are here to talk to their friends, not the "new" guy who'll fuck off after 6 months of being ignored.
the internet is shit.

What happened to Undernet at the same time?

Unrelated but is this trick really possible?
Can I trick the behemoth to get free storage by editing some files?


okay idk why but i'm uploading google photos (lots)

Reminder that the “upside-down” from Stranger Things is literally real in a completely non-metaphoric way. Neoliberal central planning is gathering data on you to create a blurry mirror-image of you that they can use to predict your interests and tastes. You know how everyone has a story about how they were talking about something one day only to see ads about it later? The typical explanation is that your microphone picks up on things you say and recommends things based on the conversation, but this is wrong. There is simply a mirror-image of you that heuristically knows your dreams and desires before you even realize them or know they exist. A blurry version of you exists in a parallel universe, snitching on you and plotting on you for a hive mind of aliens.

Is open-source close to collapse?

Yeah, MIT licensed projects are basically working for Apple but for free
