Is Ubuntu deserving the hate? (lemmy.ml)

Long story short, I have a desktop with Fedora, lovely, fast, sleek and surprisingly reliable for a near rolling distro (it failed me only once back around Fedora 34 or something where it nuked Grub). Tried to install on a 2012 i7 MacBook Air… what a slog!!! Surprisingly Ubuntu runs very smooth on it. I have been bothering all...

nephs,

Is Ubuntu trying embrace, extend, exterminate?

I just realised snaps kind of look like “extend”, after a long period of “embrace”.

Did anyone write about it, yet? Am I overthinking it?

nephs,

I’m burnt out just by reading this beautifully written pile of garbage. Jesus fuck, what a dumpster fire. Thank you so much.

nephs,

Maybe you just identified the need for an activity pub fediverse project specific to dev support/communities for tech projects.

nephs,

Noooooo! Every person makes decisions optimal for their risk profile!

Sometimes a good label for their risk profile is “stupid”.

nephs,

I’m a happy user of simple sms. I didn’t know it was a series of apps! Thank you!

nephs,

Really confident, are you?

nephs,

I’m working on increasing the number of upvotes and comments, fuckers!

nephs,

I’ll click reddit if duckduckgo takes me there. But I’ll not upvote, comment, not even login. :D

nephs,

I’ve marked “not interested” on all shorts I’ve seen, and they were all gone in like 10 minutes.

nephs,

The best way to shutdown your windows computer is to install Linux.

nephs,

Me too. And by having Linux in my primary boot, I mostly guarantee windows can’t wake itself up after I shut it down. :D

Do you need to buy a domain and figure ddns for nextcloud?

Last time I tried to use their ootb docker container it was hard to use it just from internal network.

nephs,

Funnily enough, both ISIS and the Zionist State are terrorist organizations funded by the United States.

nephs,

The Internet is really really great… 🎵

nephs,

Are unbeaten, to this day.

nephs,

Why are you not in lemmygrad, comrade?

nephs,

Not because “fuck other people”. Because “fuck banks”.

nephs,

I just accidentally the whole bottle!

nephs,

It’s a good thing to use meme space for good ideas, too. Meme space should not be just fascist Chad and coloniser frog.

nephs,

Which tool did you use for meme creation while pooping, please?

nephs,

Welcome to the Internet. Signal the joke clearly so that you are not confused with stupid extremists. Joke’s still there, and it’s clear and unambiguous.

en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poe's_law

Poe’s law is an adage of internet culture which says that, without a clear indicator of the author’s intent, any parodic or sarcastic expression of extreme views can be mistaken by some readers for a sincere expression of those views.[1][2][3] The law is frequently exploited by individuals who share genuine extremist views and, when faced with overwhelming criticism, deflect by insisting they were merely being satirical.

nephs,

Paying for Netflix isn’t fine either.

nephs,

They’re better off for life if you donate the money you’d spend with yt once for each, once per month. Many will have their turns.

nephs,

It’s not a religious conflict. It’s an imperialistic conflict.

nephs,

I generally agree. It’s often used as yet another form of oppression.

But right now, capitalism and its byproducts of colonialism and imperialism are a bigger problem for a bigger number of people than religion.

The root for Palestine Israel conflict isn’t religious. Religions have cohabitatedthe region for centuries in relative peace.

Goodbye Youtube and thanks for all the fish (infosec.pub)

Youtube let the other shoe drop in their end-stage enshittification this week. Last month, they required you to turn on Youtube History to view the feed of youtube videos recommendations. That seems reasonable, so I did it. But I delete my history every 1 week instead of every 3 months. So they don’t get much from my choices....

Will the world ever stop being anti-intellectual?

One of the most aggravating things to me in this world has to be the absolutely rampant anti-intellectualism that dominates so many conversations and debates, and its influence just seems to be expanding. Do you think there will ever actually be a time when this ends? I'd hope so once people become more educated and cultural...

nephs,

Have you seen people overrate “common sense”? That’s it.

Don’t think deeply, go for common sense, disregard the specialists, we can’t understand their areas of study, therefore they are lying.

Also, avoid studying humanities: history, philosophy, sociology, politics. That will make you poor! Stay technical and mathy, don’t worry about anything else other than making money! Have a life project! Get rich!

That’s the anti intellectual speech.

Who benefits from the smart peoples of the world not questioning the status quo, and the building blocks of capitalism?

nephs,

Citation needed for “most Linux users use adblockers”

nephs,

Who makes the laws?

Do the people making the laws respect the laws they create?

They create the laws for whom?

nephs,

The real question is: can consent be bought?

nephs,

That’s exactly the point.

How much of our lives can money buy?

What if I wanted to sell my whole remaining time for the benefit of the ones I love, in the form of organs?

Should we allow money to buy anything? Or should we actually make people less desperate so that they are not willing to sacrifice all they have for peanuts?

I hate how everything requires you to download a shitty proprietary data harvesting app nowadays when everything can be done just fine without an app.

I have recently started university and am required to use an app that has three Facebook trackers, one of them being a Facebook location tracker according to Exodus App Privacy, for the dining plan, when it would literally work perfectly fine using your student ID and ordering to a real cashier, LIKE HOW IT HAS BEEN DONE FOR...

nephs,

Or, you know. Just stop using reddit.

nephs,

What do you mean “like these”?

Usually businesses changing privacy policies are the ones without a revenue model that need to figure it out somehow, and aim to IPO.

10$/month way more revenue than they could be able to get with ads, and sure, let’s hope they don’t want to IPO, because that’s the root of all enshittification.

nephs,

Common sense can be used to sustain any stupid argument, and it should be disregarded as a valid counterpoint to anything.

nephs,

Why not contribute to the upstream?

nephs,

lichess.org

It’s chess, and it’s great!

nephs,

Don’t forget those skills are transferable!

Streams of events, object manipulation and shit is used everywhere. Just a few minor concept changes, just like from one company to another.

nephs,

Yes, I understand! I’m talking from the perspective of someone that learned those skills.

That learned about tool chains, about the required infrastructure, the processes, IDE configuration, etc.

I’m not saying the change is painless. I’m saying for each of those, there’s an equivalent in any other game making tool. The foundations help to learn the new ones faster. And the new ones takes you generalised knowledge further. Which only contributes to your professionals growth.

At the end of the day, every technology will be replaced. Being able to transfer skills between different scenarios is a valuable skill itself. :)

nephs,

That’s why FOSS software matters. FOSS software companies can’t change policies like that, for what’s already distributed.

nephs,

You have nothing to lose, but your chains

nephs,

That’s the measure of lemmy’s success. We’re in the repost era, now.

nephs,

Makes one question what should money be allowed to buy, doesn’t it?

nephs,

Active remote surveillance, no one?

nephs,

I’m speaking in abstract because it never happened to me.

But stuff like this, I suppose: businessinsider.com/how-bosses-use-employee-track…

And then actively using/reviewing these to create competition between people, and/or change how people choose to work.

I kind of get the passive use, and the extreme cases, where people are not delivering and then you find they are not actually working, in retrospect.

nephs, (edited )

This shit stinks like dogwhistle, to me.

I case it is, are you afraid of boots, fucking fascist? I case it isn’t, pardon my French.

n4mb3rs.com/neo-nazi-numbers-14-19-88-28/

For everyone else, stay alert, crush fascism! :)

nephs,

I do. But that’s the point of dogwhistling. Plausible deniability so that people pointing at it can be called insane.

The message on the post was “you can even make fun of children suffering anymore, screw politically correct people”. That’s very common right wing politics.

You will also notice someone mentioning 14 seconds video in the comments. I’m sure it’s a, coincidence, and not fascists exchanging pleasantries. The complaint was the same though, about the “fun police coming after people”.

That’s the subjacent message that was spread, this time. Apparently moderate right wing, reinforced by dogwhistling, plausibly deniable.
