Required reading http://cryptome.org/2012/07/gent-forum-spies.htm Beginner Info If you would like to try out GNU/Linux because of https://itvision.altervista.org/why-windows-10-sucks.html, you can do one of the following: 0) Install a GNU/Linux distribution of your choice in a Virtual Machine (preferably using KVM or Oracle VirtualBox for newfriends). 1) Use a live image and to boot directly into the GNU/Linux distribution without installing anything (keep in mind that the performance of live distros might be very different than from distro that was booted from your HDD, as most distros are loaded in RAM and don't include the proprietary drivers for NVIDIA GPUs or up-to-date Mesa libraries in their isos). 2) Dual boot the GNU/Linux distribution of your choice along with Windows (make sure to install Windows first, as it can "replace" GRUB or other UNIX bootloaders, and troubleshooting of Windows replacing your bootloader of choice might be painful for people that just started learning about the Linux kernel) 3) Go balls deep and replace everything with GNU/Linux (you really shouldn't do this, if you don't know what you're putting yourself into, see: https://itvision.altervista.org/why.linux.is.not.ready.for.the.desktop.current.html).

FOSS SJW Blacklist Anonymous 09/22/2019 (Sun) 07:25:12 No.219 [Reply] [Last]
The recent shitstorm about Stallman revealed more bad actors within the Linux/FOSS community and as developers and users we should fight to regain the civilization we built with our blood and tears from the encroachment of destructive "cancel culture" madmen.

We need to start by making of list of organizations and projects that are thoroughly infested with the rot. Avoid contributing effort and support to them and eventually they will crumble inwards as internecine group politics is no replacement for hard technical knowhow.

I'll start by listing a few:

Red Hat/IBM (Fedora, Centos)
Debian
Ubuntu
GNOME
PulseAudio (Red Hat/IBM)
SystemD (Red Hat/IBM)
LibreOffice
Mozilla

>>2435 fuck off, that's too fucking reasonable.
>>219 Please add >>2435 to the list.
>>1489 >GNU/Linux wouldn't get even close to it's current state without big tech giants Exactly! Look at what the damage they've done.
>>1458 That, and Unity was barely-usable clusterfuck made by Apple fanboys. I switched to Xubuntu then and there. More to the point, it was suddenly dropped in as the primary environment, not introduced as an option. This says something too. Mac was obviously intended for those with longing for Big Brother who "knows better". Being developers gave them a delusion that they became little Big Brothers too, maybe? >>1407 It's not rotten through yet (for one, no snide shits in support yet, like it was in Mozilla, those who sit on bug reports are cool people), but you see what the management is, and fish rots from the head down, so... matter of time.

>>3016 Those two graphs show no correlation with jews infiltrators and the founding of the country whatsoever. I know the fake-news pavlov technique being used is trying to conflate the two though. There very definitely was a point when globalist kikes began to have a very evil influence over the nation, but it certainly wasn't at it's inception. rather it was much closer to around 1880 or so, again your fake-news chart notwithstanding. Certainly by the time of the writing of The International Jew ~c.1920 they were a major malignancy after just 40 years or so.

>>2967 I set it up in a VM earlier today using their weekly image with lxqt just for a quick usable desktop. It seems quite fast and pretty verbose during bootup. Haven't had the chance to mess with it a lot. I don't hate openrc, but I tend to find it is a bit sluggish compared to the alternatives, even just old sysvinit. I don't do a lot of tinkering with init. Most of my interactions with my init system are just starting, rebooting, and shutting down, so speed means more to me than maybe it should. Speed, stability, and not using binary logs.
>>2969 Couple more things to consider: >compatibility with software, if you ever need (most software shouldn't depend of init system, but there is gnome) >ease of writing your own service/modifying configs, if you need to run a server but it doesn't come with service script >language it is written in >optionally: license and pozzness
>>2971 Why anyone would ever want to use GNOME I have no idea. Pretty much any non-systemd init is going to have some of the same issues with compatibility, though most distros who offer alternate inits take this in mind when packaging software. It looks like it's C code, and ISC license, so no big issues there. the only problem is your second point, and that's just something I'll have to look at as I'm using it in the VM. Hopefully another anon here has used it and can state his opinion of it.
>>2977 Update on s6: I quite like it. It handles dependencies for services automatically, which is nice. This is something runit does not do. For example, network manager requires dbus. S6 would handle this automatically, while I'd have to add it manually for runit. The whole bundle system is a little confusing for finding certain services, but it's not too bad. I tested it out switching the default sddm for lightdm and it worked fine. https://skarnet.org/software/s6/why.html is a short page on some of the features of s6 compared to other init systems, and one thing I really like is that logs are never lost. Overall, I can definitely see this replacing runit in popularity when it comes to alternative init systems, espeically as runit spends more and more time being inactive. I wouldn't call it perfect, but I would call it very good.
>>1994 > (you really shouldn't do this, if you don't know what you're putting yourself into, see: https://itvision.altervista.org/why.linux.is.not.ready.for.the.desktop.current.html ). Did I stumble onto internet time portal into late 1990-s, or what? News from post-2018 for you: Linux desktop is not a problem at all. Running one for over dozen years. The problem is that Linux foundation as such is now utterly PWNed, up to and including Torvalds himself being blackmailed into "voluntary" retirement. Hence all the bullshit like the infamous systemd thing. So it's going to be supplied by the same, uh, people as Weendows and Muck Ox. Therefore, a good question is: are there forks of the core from a more trustworthy team? For that matter, Libreoffice is still okay, but some bad smell already comes from that side too, see >>219

If anyone can modify code of free software, why don't people make better versions of programs like GIMP and other free alternatives to professional software? Shouldn't we have several versions of different free programs?

>>2404 >http://archive.fo/XZvng Autism was strong on both sides on this. Does the furry fuck think he's the president, acting high and mighty because he was too important to be dragged into it? The other dude doing the port wasn't too reasonable either. I understand his frustration since a random nobody showed up DEMANDING shit like some authoritarian leader. But he was also a sore autist shit. "Petulant children", and dropping the project altogether for a minor altercation.
>>2801 >What's left to do? Tool that draws circles and squares. GIMP is the only image editor on the planet that doesn't have this.
The one and only reason people don't fix shit is because: >1. It takes a long ass time to learn a codebase in 2020. Have you seen the absurd LOC in modern projects? >2. Projects are not documented enough to be openly hackable >3. Nobody enjoys trying to make sense of C codebases with a thousand imported header files and single-letter variables, specially when they are not well commented. >4. Some developers have some loud and ass-backwards opinions and they will reject your patches because of some vague notions about hoe it doesn't fit the project's philosophy. People are afraid of having their efforts thrown away due to some dude's ego. Open development suffers from the gigantic autism of the average developer. Hackable software needs some extensive documentation and not many programmers are up to that task, which causes people to be afraid of diving deep into it.
