>> No.62934158

I have this too, but now it refuses to install any packages because Arch maintainers don't get a big enough allowance from their mothers to buy enough hard drives to keep older packages in their repos. So every time I try to install anything I get a 404 from every single mirror.

Arch would have been the master race of distros if they allowed using old packages and upgrading to an arbitrary snapshot instead of always the latest release, but they don't, so instead it's just hobbyist trash and a wasted effort.

1. I've literally never done a serious backup of my data. Yes, I know I can lose it all in a second (in fact, lost all my data that was on a 3(?)TB external one time, which was painful). But laziness + "won't happen again" syndrome + apathy makes it difficult to motivate me.

2. I still use a 1600x900, 20inch monitor as my sole screen, which I got like 7-8 years ago. On one hand, it's crappy as fuck (seriously, adjusting the settings via its buttons makes me want to die), but on the other hand, it does all I need it to do and gives me a reason not to consume more hard-drive space by downloading 1080+ videos.

I use Windows 10, but I pretend to be a hardcore Linux user and bash on all Windows users for being illiterate retards to deal with my own insecurities and retardation, I bought a Thinkpad in which I installed Arch and Gentoo in dual boot just to show off on the screenfetch thread, of course I installed them following tutorials step by stem and it took me about a month to install each and rice it appropriately. I also play dumb gaymes all day and eat whatever mom cooks, I actually have some neetbux from actually pretending to be retarded and got a pension, I just need to go to a special center for people with issues once a week a couple of hours, and I get 700 bucks per month I spend on computer parts and gaymes.

- Pretty sure that most of free software is garbage but now feel uncomfortable using botnet. Fuck you, Stallman.
- Was shilling for org mode, even though I'd never used it. Only later I've learned that it's almost useless (as Emacs itself).

Close, I use Ubuntu with Xfce (Xubuntu had some weird issues). Still want to use a cooler distro but it looks like literally every distro except Ubuntu based one has some serous drawbacks or just borderline broken.

>> No.62939577

I feel like Stallman has been a net negative on the free software since he hasn't done shit since the 80's involving making software and constantly gets into autistic arguments about how this and that isn't free software, instead of maintaining his fucking software, like even Theo de Raddt, love or hate him, has actually done. If Stallman was less autistic, I'm pretty sure there would be less of a stigma around free software in general

Its been so long since Ive done anything productive that Im starting to forget how to even use my own computer. some times its like living through technological regression where a complex automated thing breaks down and nobody knows how to fix it.
