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.

Just don't install suspicious files off the internet, duh.
Jokes aside, MalwareBytes is a good option, and make sure to scan any suspicious files through VirusTotal to check if they are safe.


just do a yearly manual scan with MBAM and Avira


Best advice is to run Windows in a Qubes OS virtual machine.


you should only use the built-in windows defender unless you like installing spyware that will make your computer run even slower


although obviously the better option is simply not using windows at all

Is it wrong to miss technology nerds of old? Were they just as bad but for different reasons or actually better?

>The beauty of free software is that you can be a free software activist and have your own political opinions on the side.
If you can be a free software activist and hold your own political opinions on the side; what good is your activism? It's like you're admitting to your own impotence; it's really bizarre.


People with boring and impotent politics are so quick to call others "ultras" and "purists".
Funnily enough Stallman is considered an "extremist" by many, especially for his lifestyle of complete rejection of anything proprietary.

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.

>Honestly why isn't there more left wing cyber warfare?
because being capable of cyber warfare requires a level of education and free time that most working class people don't have


is there a better looking but feature rich as notepad++ alternative?? for windows


what the FUCK are you talking about lmao
ppl will say the dumbest shit trying to sound woke


The fuck?


Emacs, but it's quite the learning curve.


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?

Apparently they're a senior software dev.


And one that probably sits on their ass all day, knows a bit of C/C++, and tells other devs what to do. OP doesn't know what framework/API specialization is and thinks every language follows similar OOP syntax.


> knows a bit of C
< every language follows similar OOP syntax.


uyghas really be thinking that memorizing the API of some fad framework makes them a specialist


>I only know how to use one hyper-specific framework and have developed no transferable algorithmic, problem solving, or architectural skills, and am loudly proud of this fact in public for some fucking reason!!

How many of you are based enough to use these keys?

Use them all the time. Had a mindblown moment when i bothered to click them and discovered what they each did. Made navigation infinitely more convenient.
Use it rather frequently.
What does it do



see this is why i said i feel bad for the zoomers. even if they're smart enough to use apps like these, you can type about 100-200wpm with a regular keyboard and practice


The problem is that the delete button is too close to end, so sometimes I end up deleting stuff by accident.


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.

I liked google glasses

This might interest you anon - linux VR headset with AR integration.


>Source: strapped a $200 display to my face and fucked up the focus of one of my eyes for a while, on an intermittent and recurring basis

what the fuck lmao, that's some tony stark shit
how and why did you do it?


>low power scanline laser projector.
what is that thing exactly? how small are these things exactly that you don't even need glasses for and a noseclip is enough

i want to fuck the cyber pussy

i don't have a VR, have you tried it anon?


This will be ideal for working while sitting in an airliner. It's also got eye tracking to replace a mouse, so only keyboard is required. Does the hardware have backdoors like IME? I can't find anything about the i7-1265U and security.


No I'm too poor lol

I knew all that data going around was getting sold to many companies but I didn't know it was this easy to acquire it.


>Phone companies were caught selling their customers' real-time location data, and it reportedly ended up in the hands of bounty hunters and stalkers.
uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh jesus


Technological panopticon


I think Americans are more screwed than the rest in this matter but it's only a matter of time before the rest of the world catches up.
