It's time to face the facts. Richard Stallman is nothing more than a whining, overly obese autistic manbaby who has not done anything beneficial for the computing OR technology world in the past 20 years. Seriously. Name something that RMS has done after 1995 besides bitching, crying, and moaning about bullshit that does not matter, or making some retarded, incomprehensible speech.

He demands that Linux be called GNU/Linux. That is fucking insane. The only reason GNU, GPL, and FSF are still a THING is because of Linus and the invention of Linux. If anything, Stallman should rename GNU to Linux/GNU, because without Linus, the GNU, GPL, and FSF would not be a thing anymore.

Stallman still has the fucking gonads to act like he's superior to everyone else. Saying shit such as "I'm not glad he's dead, but I'm glad he's gone" right after Steve Jobs' death. What an asshole. Stallman has not even programmed a single line of code since 2008, that was AFTER he essentially stopped in 1992.

He should be fucking grateful Linus stepped in to save his ass, and even allowing him to take partial credit for his achievements. If it wasn't for Linus, he would be nothing, he would probably be dead in a Burger King dumpster right now.

Besides, what has he ever even done? He claims to have written eMacs, but in reality he actually cloned gosmacs (the first eMacs that was made for UNIX). He didn't even write 50% of the code in eMacs.

You might say he wrote GCC and GDB, but the truth is that he initally wrote the C compiler, but now the vast majority for the same compiler is done by contributors.

He's a washed up, morbidly obese man who tries to stay relevant by having these retarded arguments that are similar to those found in the Soviet Union. Face it GNU/Freetards, Richard Stallman is a fat dickhead, and the only reason his name is still in the books is because of Linus's achievements.

>> No.61733595

stallman is not a philosophically pure person. he follows his ideals when convenient, and ignores them or slightly alters them when the conflict isn't worth it.

stallman is an egoist in denial, afraid of admitting that he just wants some fucking source code instead of a world where he has to rely on other people because he knows he wouldn't get it that way.

his system has some practical merits but his attempts at creating moral justifications are completely pathetic and nonsensical. how low do you have to be to have to make up bullshit "oughts" when you can just say "it would be fucking better"?

>> No.61733605

Linus writes beautiful code. He has published some side projects that he wrote all on his own and the code is just wonderful. He also lives in the real world while still maintaining his open source ideals and supporting himself through his work.

RMS is basically a homeless loser who hasn't made any real contributions in the last 20 years. He is still super butthurt that Linux beet HURD (but hey, HURD just got basic sound support in 2016!) and basically tries to claim Linux because Linus used GCC and the GNU coreutils. He survives on the charity of others and speaking engagements where he spouts his insane, paranoid, philosophy. Basically he won't be happy until all the programmers are homeless hackers like him and all the companies are shut down. How people are supposed to support themselves and their families in that scenario aren't things he has to deal with because he is basically a permanent grad student. He does make some good points about privacy, but for him, there is no middle ground. Anything that may reduce your privacy even the slightest bit (like movie recommendations on Netflix) is evil according to him, and must be destroyed. In a lot of ways he show classic signs of mental splitting, which is a classic symptom of mental illness. To top it off, when he does write code, he does so in the style of the awful GNU style guide which is a crime against humanity IMHO.

So, in a nutshell:
He's a bird-fucking, self-absorbed, power hungry, toe jam eating pedophile that thinks everything should be free and everyone should be forced to share, who looks like he hasn't showered in years so as to create a static shield around his body to protect from aliens. He also created an OS without a kernel because he's basically Steve Jobs gone communist. Oh, and he calls himself doctor though he holds no PhD.

>> No.61733622

Don't call it GNU/Linux. It gives Stallsham undue credit. He's done nothing but take credit for the work of others and has the audacity to call himself a Doctor when he couldn't even finish his Masters.

wrote emacs
Contributed to guy steele's TECO macros, later cloned gosmacs, the actual first emacs for UNIX. If stallman wrote emacs, apple is the sole creator of webkit.
wrote gcc and gdb
He wrote the C compiler initially, but the vast majority of development for other compilers and the C compiler has came from non-stallman sources.

And he hasn't programmed in years. Stallman is washed up, and his justifications for copyleft are horribly invalid nonsense that would make more sense if they were actual thinly veiled communism instead of selfish ramblings and a desire for a world that catered to his specific social class.

Without GNU linux couldn't work (at the time now we have busybox and stuff). They depend on each other.

Steve jobs was a maker of non-free software. He was saying he was glad that he was gone. He would have also been glad if steve had stopped. It doesn't matter how much code he wrote but instead how important the code he did write was.

>He should be fucking grateful Linus stepped in to save his ass, and even allowing him to take partial credit for his achievements. If it wasn't for Linus, he would be nothing, he would probably be dead in a Burger King dumpster right now.

Without GNU and the free software movement linus may not have even written linux or it may not have been free as in freedom.

he started the free software movement and without him it is very doubtful linux, firefox, vim, emacs, apache and most other non-BSD free software would exist at all.

I'm sick of Windows' shit, and also recently graduated college and am trying to get into some serious programming and development. My roommate got a Thinkpad Chromebook and runs ChromeOS alongside Lubuntu on the same kernel, he says he loves it. Doesn't miss Windows at all except for gaming.

I, however never bothered to switch BECAUSE of gaming. I've been thinking of trying to go Linux full-time for the reasons above, and just dual-boot Windoze for muh gaymen.

I'm not totally sure if I should just go all-in, but I'm a staunch utilitarian and if Linux is objectively better, I'll go for it. If that's the case, should I install Mint/Ubuntu as my primary OS on my (120GB) SSD, and just put Windows on my (1TB) HDD alongside all my game files?

I already keep all my games on the HDD anyway. But would I have to pre-partition the drive if I want to use some of it for /home or something, because of the filesystems?

>> No.61734407

>>61734358
The best DE is the DE which suits your needs. I suggest trying the most common. The all have flaws and features. KDE is bloated, but has a nice filepicker, GNOME is going downhill since they started removing features, trying to be lightweight. I personaly like Xfce, but here you need a compositor like compton so you don't have screen tearing. Unity died and Ubuntu ships GNOME now. Mate and Cinnamon are comfy for beinners since they are a bit windowsesque.

I have Arch running on Pi Zero W and I want to add a swap file, because at any given time the memory usage exceeds 40-50%. I've never messed with swap though, so I have some questions:

Is 512MiB enough? I'd assume so, but you know...

Should I use zram/zswap? Or will that just eat up CPU and be counterproductive?

How can I set it up for the best results?

You can replace DEs on any distro, but stuff can break when you don't know what you're doing. Switching Window Managers, like, installing i3 or openbox on Ubuntu works flawlessly. In fact you can install 1000 WMs and just switch between them before you login.

Lightweight: Xfce, OpenBox, i3, but if you want something that just works without any tinkering, use KDE. "bloat" can be one man's useless crap and other man's usefull feature.

Just try some DEs and WMs in a VM and decide what you like. Pretty much any distro is lightweight, compared to Windows.

There's f.lux for loonix, but you should try redshift instead since it's free software and does pretty much the same job. There's also reshift-gtk if you need a gui in your panel but it isn't needed.
Run "man redshift" to get the flags you need, brightness can be done with -g (gamma) and the transition speed can be turned on and off (theres no option for speed but it doesn't make sense anyway).
I don't even use a config, I just have
redshift -g 0.9 -m randr -r -t 6500:5300
in my xinitrc

You use gamma for brightness? There was an actual -b brightness value from 0.1 to 1 I tried last time and it didn't work, maybe gamma will work instead.

Anyone want to help make a new terminal based online discussion format centered around the GNU/Linux filesystem?

Thinking of making a sort of "Request based shell" (RBS) client.
Basically instead of connecting and staying connected (or timing out) like with IRC or BBS systems, this one would look and act exactly like you had a shell on the machine (so it would also retain a history of your commands) except instead of keeping a persistent connection open it only opens a connection when you actually enter a command, the server returns the output and then the connection is closed. Just like the client-server model for websites. This way you can idle all day and there is no major issue with having too many users connected at once.

It could be used for discussions by simply having a few scripts, for things such as generating append-only files as threads and formatting posts, or a script to output information like a thread watcher, etc..
Users could manage the files just like normal, upload files, modify permissions, create groups, symlinks, etc..

>>61737437
It wouldn't really be a replacement for IRC though, just a totally new thing.
I would imagine it would feel more like posting on 4chan (before auto-updaters), or like checking your email, rather than using IRC. So I think the client-server model would be appropriate.
Also IRC doesn't let you build a directory structure with file uploads and the full set of permissions on said directories and files

I also think it could feel a lot like using a BBS, but let's face it BBS's are never going to make a comeback because of the huge issue with having tons of people connected at once. This is like the next best thing.

Someone else can probably tell you better than me, but they are paid developers who get money from the government which raises some questions. But maybe a bigger reason is every time I read about projects they're involved in they always come across as complete assholes who think their way is the only way and want to strong arm everyone else.
There's always incidents with things like devs forcing Linus to change things in the kernel itself or refusing to implement trivial patches to things that break other software, almost like they're trying to build a walled garden and dependence on their own circle of developers.
It always seems to trace back to redhat devs. Of course the latest buzz you've probably heard about is systemd and wouldn't you know it Poettering works for redhat.
and you don't have to be an expert to have some red flags get raised at how suspiciously quick systemd not only rose to popularity but also created a circle of dependencies that makes it almost completely impossible for any distro to use anything but systemd anymore.

Either they're really just innocent and only guilty of completely not giving a shit about anything on GNU/Linux but exactly the software they like and the way they think things should be done (a very Windows-like mentality) OR they are actively trying to build that walled garden and make everyone depend on them

Yes, let's restrict the freedom of choice. No one should hold opinions I personally don't like!

What choice are you referring to?

>>61751561
wrong sweetie, there only ever was one correct Linux-related general on /g/, that's /flt/, you tried to subvert it, but failed. You're also the reason Linux has such a pathetic marketshare after about 20 years of trying hard to take on the desktop.

The choice to tell GNU to fuck off.

>> No.61751681

And /flt/ is back up and running.
You should be happy.
Stop shitting up this general please.
Go to the one you claim to prefer.
I'm starting to think you'd rather stay here, and be an annoying prick. Mayber because you're just an annoying prick.

Um friendo.
/flt/ has been here since july 2015.
Your /fglt/ isnt even a year old.You usurped the thread mid last year.
We arent having it anymore.

Also,what you plan to do right now, is against the rules.Which you seem to enjoy following given your association with gnu

Bye Friend

Now you're the one going against your GNU principles in trying to shut me down. I'm merely exercising my freedom to fuck up your general. Isn't that a part of GNU also?

And the /flt is back.
All I'm asking is that you go there.
Stop annoying the grownups.

You people are always confused about what freedom is. You literally cannot have true freedom without welcoming oppression

and if you try to get rid of it then you're just oppressing my freedom to force GNU down your throat. So are you really any better at all?

At least GNU is aware of the fact that it's an ethical movement that should benefit the users of its software rather than playing make-believe that you can just magically end up with a beautiful system designed with your needs taken to heart without having to fight off the forces that seek to twist it for their own personal gain

Kind of interesting that you rag on GNU for fighting for freedom while you're sitting here doing the exact same thing right now.
If you were truly all about letting people do whatever they want then you wouldn't give a shit what GNU was up to, neither to be a part of it, NOR to exclude it.

Wanting a thread free of ideology is itself an ideology.

It's the fucking board rules. Rules don't answer to a fucking ideology, they are set by an owner, who is not you. That's all you need to know.

I'm trying to learn how to get rid of the botnet. I thought someone here could give me a hand to understand what was wrong since I'm new to OpenRC. Nevermind, I've solved the problem anyway.
