Exactly what I would say. NuLinux is barely staying ahead of wangblows. It's really a race to the bottom (lead by m$ at this time thankfully). Bug after regression after kernel vuln in new versions of the linux kernels and all the tranny drama crap aren't exactly shining points. In the 2.6 days, there were critical issues (NFS and performance-wise for instance) but things were mostly stable.
Moreover the userland stack is pretty fucked and getting worse by the day. Just look at the abomination that is gtk3 and how useless both plasma and gnome are. As DEs and graphics libraries, they're pretty critical to userland. Shit like flatpack/snaps, electron apps and the general habit of all software people to stop testing has not escaped linux either.

All in all, it's just like 8ch vs 4chan: 8ch (windows) is worse than 4chan (GNU), and magically, everytime 4chan becomes worse, 8ch manages to become worse even faster than 4chan can.

I really want to defend Windows against (((Google))) and (((Bill Nye the Science Fraud)))

but I can't. Not this time. Microsoft really fucked up with Windows 10. They fell for the tablet meme and completely fucked up what werked just fine (Win 7), starting with 8 and continuing into 10. They stress it's because they want one Windows across all devices. But how many people really use Surface shit? Like seriously how many Windows users use are >Graphic Designers using Surface devices? A very small fraction of 1%, I'm guessing. Everyone else just wants a normal Windows desktop OS like that of 95, 98, 2000, XP, 7. Microsoft fucked up Windows for all those 99+% of Windows users in favor of that tiny fraction of meme users. Add how fucking horribly updates are controlled now, plus extra botnet spying on top....and yeah, I can't defend Windows any more. You brought this on yourself, Microsoft, you fucking retards.

Why couldn't they just continued to keep Windows as a normal desktop OS like it used to be, and only have the tablet shit on tablets? Like they would have the special tablet version of Windows, and everyone else would be left alone to have normal Windows. Why shove that garbage down all of our throats?

The only reason Windows is on top is because it comes preinstalled on pretty much every home desktop. Take that away and it's left with nothing.

Chrome book sales are soaring because people really aren't choosing the windows os, they never were and when an alternative comes along people will choose that in large numbers.

what normies will not do is install their own os because that seems too complicated for them. And frankly I don't fault the normies for this, any time you install any os you're going to have driver and compatibility issues

Windows has been stagnant, they haven't innovated any new interesting features since Windows 7.

Windows 7 is old and tired. Windows 10 is completely different and updated (no im not implying it has zero problems). Windows 10 has a newer updated kernel and supports things like taking the hard drive from 1 PC and moving it to another PC. It's ability to schedule multi core can be questionable but it means over 16 threads. In windows 7 it was questionable for 8 threads.

The word gender is fundamentally wrong and stems from the inhuman experiments of some deranged jew called john money (yes, that is his name, lel) that drove two brothers into suicide and called it a success of his theory.
Gender is not existent, it is a lie, a false utterance, the only thing they can really say is "but it was real in my head" as they get laughed at by the rest of the sane world.


It is the modern world lobotomy, and it is massively profitable of a "treatment".

Sure, but the original comment by Nye is about how there's degrees to it, from solely male to solely female and everything between. Gender binary exists in the sense that there's usually two sides, male and female. Gender being spectrum describes where people fall between the two.
>Do you understand this simple concept?

I'm sure it's part of some political thought, but I'm still not sure how Marxists fit into this.

What part? Though gender identity is usually fairly rigid, there's certainly people who are fluid in the sense that their gender identity isn't as rigid as others'. And there's research to back this up. So I'm not entirely sure what part you feel like isn't "based in science or reality". The degree which gender is fluid is more contentious, gender being a spectrum not so much.

I do somewhat agree, but it's a classification that isn't valueless. You could say the same thing about classification by race. The lines are blurry for both as to where to draw the lines and what metrics to use, but for now they're reasonably useful. Whether you want to say that something can only be either masculine or feminine (as is the case with some euro languages), or that it can also be bang in the middle, or that there's a whole spectrum of things doesn't really make much of a difference. But deciding that a solely aesthetic term now refers to your mental state is somewhat incorrect. Undoubtedly there are people that are more and less masculine or feminine as far as their brains go, but I'd wager we should use a different, more rigorous term for this instead. Race also should be replaced with some metric based on genetic phase-space coordinates.

Yeah but you can just train yourself to discard the lens or to see through a different one, as you do any other lens.
Race is valuable in a medical context due to genetic predispositions towards certain diseases or disorders varying based upon genetics, however if you could reach the point of just checking on an individual level cheaply then Race becomes less useful, a lot of the cultural baggage with race is detrimental as well. It also ends up mattering in areas like the US where access to quality education is highly dependent on familial wealth and multiple policies until quite recently disadvantaged the wealth generation of non-white families.
Sex is what is useful medically, and systemic issues relating to gender are far easier to correct than race, due to the lack of generational overhang.
So if you get rid of race, you do lose some specificity. However, if you got rid of gender then you really don't lose anything. Getting rid of sex you'd lose some.

>> No.72316523

I wouldn't really advocate getting rid of race unless we have a well-established and convenient replacement. In an age when everyone has access to their genome, it would be a piece of cake to do this. In an age where everyone had their genome completely customised, this "genetic vector" would become completely removed from original race, as the typically grouped characteristics of particular races would be largely mixed and purposefully selected for.

It's not even remotely enough to undo the damaged we've caused, most of our oxygen is produced by phytoplankton anyway and even accelerated oxygen output from them won't be enough to make a dent.

The reality is we're fucked not just because we've been pumping metric tons of additional CO2/GFCs in the air but because on a practical scale we can't slow down much because we depend on all this pollution to function (ie fuel, cooling, heating, electricity) so the most practical thing that could be done is engineer phytoplankton that absorb CO2 at artificially accelerated rates and we have no idea how badly that could backfire on us (ie we kill most marine life).

Of course not, I never said we're running out of O2. But in the process of creating it you also remove CO2 from the air.

The problem is again: the elevated CO2 levels won't be enough to make plant life and phytoplankton remove CO2 faster than what is currently being pumped out. We have to speed up this process by genetically engineering phytoplankton to absorb more CO2 than what they are capable of right now and that could have devastating consequences in the near future as bad as climate change itself.

Regardless if O2 levels were higher than 21% (which is also bad, see free radicals), higher CO2 levels begin to cause detrimental psychological and physiological problems WAY before you get to 1% concentrations (ie 10,000 PPM), even at 500 PPM (where we're currently headed) people begin feeling drowsy, sluggish, and general malaise. That's why staying in your room playing video gaymes all day or watching chink toons is bad for you. We're THAT sensitive to CO2.

Okay, use Xfce if you have a dinosaur. My machine is almost a decade old (first-gen i5) and Cinnamon works fine here.

I love how the objections you people bring up are always something of such magnitude, like the attitudes of Society. Conveniently for you, changing those attitudes would be a massive generational under talking which won't happen in our life time (and even if it did, you'd just cherry pick a story out of the news or the twatterverse and say "SeE, Ppl hAte TraNNySexualsssss!"). As a result, you get to keep repeating this bullshit narrative, comfortable in the realization that the rules you've set up for this engagement require any such challenge to your position be presented as societal change, which as we've established isn't going to happen in our life time.

This is why no one takes you retards seriously. According to you mental illness can't possibly be the killer for trannies (dysphoria being an illness that literally causes the sufferer to resent and even hate their own body). No, it must be the big scary society boogyman.

You guys laugh but Chromebooks are taking over school. Soon kids are going to grow up and only understand how to operate chromeos, iOS and Android. If you stick one of these kids in front of a Windows computer they'll be just as confused as your 85 year old grandma trying use her computer.

Oh yeah and by the way, these kids have no idea what local storage is. To them everything is just 'in the cloud', the entire idea of storing something once a single computer escapes them.

There is some truth to this, and it's the only hope of Windows dying or being remade. Soon enough actual PCs will return to being a less common items in people's lives as other devices take their place. Yes, serious work will require them, but we're talking real serious work, no you writing emails, scheduling meetings, and having your fucking scrum conference call.
