Which of these combinations is the best?
>2x4GB 1333MHz DDR3
>1x8GB 1600MHz DDR3
I have two ThinkPads and 16GB RAM. Each one needs 8GB but one has a much better CPU, and I want to give that one the best performing RAM combination.

I think you might be a little GNU/Retarded if you know what I mean.

nano is emacs lil cousin.
I use nano all the time for quick config edits. Haveing familiar movement keys to emacs is nice and why I use nano over vi.
If you ever decide to use emacs cause you want a little bit more features, your migration to emacs will be an enlightening pilgrimage.

I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I've recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX.
Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called "Linux", and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project.
There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use. Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine's resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called "Linux" distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux.

>Arch has never been a minimalist distribution...
These are mostly side effects of Arch being a binary based distribution, as opposed to a source-based distro like Gentoo. Both have upsides and downsides.

>pacman is fast but not safe...
In practice I've never had pacman break a package, and it's fast by your own admission.

>there is no official process to verify that a package is stable within the distro, in other distros a lot of packages are in a testing repo...
Arch has a testing repo.

>a lot of AUR packages pull from upstream...
Use another source, achieved by a simple edit of the PKGBUILD

>arch users complain about muh compile time when it comes to gentoo, while in fact they compile a lot of AUR packages themselves, namely the *-git packages that pull the source from a git repo
Compiling a few packages from the AUR is much easier and faster than compiling nearly every package on your system.

>but it gets even better: they only compile a handful of packages, and those not being libraries mostly, the self-compiled packages get linked against precompiled libraries from a different setup (e.g. different optimization levels), which can then cause even more instability because it's a clusterfuck of unequal shit
"Can cause instability" but in my experience it works fine, and even if it doesn't the AUR is unsupported anyways.

>arch uses (((systemd))) and switching to something else is hard
It's not hard, search for "Artix Linux"

>apparently the vim package on arch pulls in X...
Use the Arch Build System and remove that dependency from the PKGBUILD

>maintainer told the guy...
So one maintainer thinks vi is an acceptable substitute for vim, who cares?

I don't understand all the animosity surrounding Arch but based on these arguments I assume it's pettiness. If anyone wants to present some real arguments about why Arch is inferior I'll be waiting.

Is there any good youtube videos that can explain the idea of free software well enough that my normie friends can understand it?

Bonus points if Richard Stallman isn't in the video.

"We sat down one morning," recalls Steele. "I was at the keyboard, and he was at my elbow," says Steele. "He was perfectly willing to let me type, but he was also telling me what to type.

The programming session lasted 10 hours. Throughout that entire time, Steele says, neither he nor Stallman took a break or made any small talk. By the end of the session, they had managed to hack the pretty print source code to just under 100 lines. "My fingers were on the keyboard the whole time," Steele recalls, "but it felt like both of our ideas were flowing onto the screen. He told me what to type, and I typed it."

The length of the session revealed itself when Steele finally left the AI Lab. Standing outside the building at 545 Tech Square, he was surprised to find himself surrounded by nighttime darkness. As a programmer, Steele was used to marathon coding sessions. Still, something about this session was different. Working with Stallman had forced Steele to block out all external stimuli and focus his entire mental energies on the task at hand. Looking back, Steele says he found the Stallman mind-meld both exhilarating and scary at the same time. "My first thought afterward was: it was a great experience, very intense, and that I never wanted to do it again in my life."

Daily reminder that stallman is a faggot. It's called Linux, not gnu Linux.

gnu is nothing more than stealing ideas from UNIX and rewrite them in a faggot way.

>Given GNU's desire to replicate Unix, I think Bison was inevitable. I am bemused that some GNU people are so irritated that GNU's contribution to Linux is not recognized, but yet they have failed to recognize their debt to those of us who worked on Unix...
