  1. So you came to a thread about appearances to rant about GNU and licensing you don't agree with... We get it, you're a *BSD fanboy.
  2. Well, like I said, it's a matter of taste. The GTK3 CSD header bars you can get with newer versions of Chrome and Firefox look awful to me and don't really save much in the way of screen space. You can't really call that theming inconsistency if it's consistent with the rest of the system. If you'll excuse the music, here's a video I found showing what the GTK3 CSDs currently look like in GNOME 3:
  3. You mean the title bar? That's more a matter of taste, but you can disable system title bars if you want. I use title bar menus, so the title bar serves a purpose on every application that exports and app menu (mostly Qt, but Electron apps and Chromium/Chrome do it too).
  4. Did you set the GTK2 and 3 themes to Breeze? Some distros do that by default, some don't.
  5. KDE has theming inconsistency? I'm not sure what you're talking about. What settings? KDE has more options for eye candy than most DEs.
  6. Every Linux distro. Just get a DE and a theme you like.
  7. Yes, it's safer than writing down your passwords or trying to remember them yourself. It allows you to use unique, long, randomly generated passwords for every account without having to remember any of them. Doing that greatly improves your security and keeps hackers from getting into other accounts even if they do get access to one of your accounts. I personally use KeePass though.
  8. Android Studio comes with an Android emulator. Not sure about Windows, but it performs well enough on Linux.
  9. You know, Linux already has a large amount of customization and layouts. It's far more mature than Fuchsia, so you don't have to wait to try something new. You can also already answer texts from a Linux PC, sync notifications and use your Android phone as a remote control for the PC via KDEConnect and it's easy to use. What do you mean "actually understands the latest devices and actually connects them on an operating system level"? That's literally what an OS does. If it didn't understand and connect to them on an operating system level, they wouldn't work. Also, Fuchsia uses a microk
  10. You can make a Picroft: https://mycroft.ai/ If you have the Raspberry Pi 3 model B, you don't need a Bluetooth or WiFi adapter.
  11. You could always make the sound yourself. It depends on what kind of sound you're looking for, but there's a good chance it's not that hard.
  12. If you're dead broke and plan to use an emulator, I'd hope you spent any money you did have on a good PC or the emulator will run poorly. I'll be much easier to just buy HL2 on a Steam sale and plug in an XBox controller to play it.
  13. I know and that's good. I wasn't telling you to use IceWM, just telling @EPENEX that i3wm is not a good thing to recommend here. You seem like someone who just wants something light and simple with no hassles. i3wm is a highly configurable tiling window manager, so it would be quite different from what you're used to.
  14. IceWM would be more appropriate for the OP than i3wm.
  15. Firefox. I've used it since version 3. I've tried other browsers, but it never stopped being my main browser.
  16. I still don't like Kubuntu since it uses libinput Xorg drivers by default even though libinput isn't fully supported by KDE Plasma yet and causes slow scrolling issues with Qt Quick.
  17. What he's referring to are the TTY (1-7) shortcuts (Ctrl+Alt+F1 to F7). They work without needing a DE, WM or even an X server.
  18. LXDE, LXQt and Xfce are the 3 lightest Linux desktop environements. A desktop environment (DE) is just the GUI that makes your OS intuitive. Without it, you'd just have the command-line, like MS-DOS. LXDE and LXQt are the lightest of the 3, but are a bit more bare bones than Xfce. That's never been a problem in my experience, but I guess if you wanted to do something uncommon like use a Wacom tablet it might. LXQt is the newest and nicest looking one of the 3. Xfce has been around since 1996 and is the most mature, but it doesn't look like it's from the 90s.
  19. You never said that, but it used a lot more RAM than that when I last used it. Playing a song isn't a resource intensive action in the first place.
  20. Huh, I'm surprised it would be based on Fedora, a US based distro.
  21. It's a pretty resource hungry program on Windows, especially once you've opened the store. It's impossible to use through WIne on Linux as well, but that's going off topic.
  22. Shit like this is why the iPhone 4 was my first and last iPhone and I had been using iPods before then. Every method for getting files onto an iPhone without iTunes is basically hacked together and a PITA to use. I'm not sure if any of them even work anymore, but there used to be a way to add music to an iPhone from Foobar2000. I knew how to use iTunes and still hated it after a while. It's slow, it's unreliable and you're forced to use it instead of more powerful music players like Foobar2000. Maybe it's better if you use it on a Mac, which you seem to do, but that's just one more rea
  23. Specs for headphones is a tricky subject, but the impedance (Ohms) is something to watch out for. Headphones with a lot of impedance will need a headphone amplifier. Headphones with a lot of impedance also tend to sound better, but you may not want to pay for or carry an amp around. Personally, I'd base my choice on headphone reviews and pay special attention to anything about durability. Nothing sucks more than paying good money for something only to see it break before you feel ready to replace it. I'd also look at the frequency responses of headphones. Flatter frequency responses are more b
  24. Good headphones that are worth the price are roughly around 150-300 USD. You can get cheaper headphones, but they usually have to compromise somewhere that you'll notice later on if they sound good. I have some Audio-Technica M50 headphones that I got 5-6 years ago for about $140. There's currently a newer model called the M50x that has a detachable cable (makes broken wires easy to replace). They've held up very well over the years and they sound great for any kind of music. They're more balanced than bass heavy since they're professional studio monitor headphones, but the bass is still great
