Created a nice script that makes i3 and Arch Linux as accessible as a team-assembled fork distro (Antergos, Manjaro) . Produces simple tutorial videos.

One thing I really hate about the linux community is that it's full of autistic faggots like this. "Oh, you're using Linux, I see. Well I'm using (obscure distro) with (obscure wm). I also exclusively work from the terminal because its *so* much more efficient. What? You use stock ubuntu? Hah, kid, try void linux with i3 and write everything in LAetExXE using only keyboard commands. Oh, you're doing all that? Well I'm LIBRA BOOTING because I value my freedoms and the tenets of *free* software."

What I'm specifically talking about is realizing that you're using a bunch of different individual programs and that you shouldn't compare "Linux" to Windows or Mac OS, because a different level of modularity is possible. You can choose your own file manager, terminal emulator, fonts, icons, gtk theme, wallpaper program, irc client, window manager, compositor, etc. If GIMP fucks up, it's a GIMP problem, not a "Linux" problem. A bunch of people don't understand this, so I was happy to hear him talking about it.

>> No.66666273

yes, you fucking retard. that is the unix philosophy. it's not luke's idea. it's not luke's idea to evangelize it. luke is just a fucking kode with klossy for /g/ neets.

as written by thompson and pike 40 fucking years ago:

>>Even though the UNIX system introduces a number of innovative programs and techniques, no single program or idea makes it work well. Instead, what makes it effective is the approach to programming, a philosophy of using the computer. Although that philosophy can't be written down in a single sentence, at its heart is the idea that the power of a system comes more from the relationships among programs than from the programs themselves. Many UNIX programs do quite trivial things in isolation, but, combined with other programs, become general and useful tools.

>> No.66669080

Well, I haven't watched most of his videos concerning other topics. I saw some videos about his Arch workspace and that got me motivated to join the Arch community as well. I do have to say that some of his videos are absolute shit. Not because it has nothing to do with Linux or anything close to it, it was just badly done. My favourite video of him (and perhaps the one that mad me subscribe) was the one about how he can't stand anything coming from Apple. It would have bee better if he used his own face while talking instead of making it a "cringe meme compilation".

>> No.66669097

Some of his stuff looks like it's straight from 4chan, but the rest is actual good content.

>> No.66669146

But 4chan is the same, except without the good content in between.

>> No.66669154

Also agree, he should make videos without using too much memes. That way, he could come over as more serious. Some of his videos are genuinely good, but he goes overboard with his memes which annoys me to some extend as well.

>> No.66669192

*many memes

>> No.66669194

It's one thing to shitpost it anonymously, it's another to put it up on youtube with your real name and face. I know people will claim it's just memes but it says a lot about him. Also I don't come on 4chan with the intention of taking it seriously.

honestly this is a big problem I have found with most tech channels. Not just memes but politics in general (from both sides). You'd think tech would be one place where we could be neutral, but no.

Sadly enough, it's true. He could get a bigger following if he wouldn't bloat/overload his thumbnails with overused, aged memes.

I can't take his opinions on tech seriously when he can't even manage a simple fucking forum.

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.
