    Just testing something, please reply if you wan…

  2. There used to be a lot more variety but Microsoft pretty much forced all major commercial competitors out of the market. Apple survived because it didn't really directly compete with Microsoft at the time and Linux (and to a lesser extent *bsd) kind of stuck around thanks to a combination of community effort and server space presence. Making something new from scratch with comparable features to any of these major desktop operating systems would be effectively impossible now due to just how much work would be required - only some huge corporation like Google might have the resources to pull it
  3. Oh no that one's real, after all if Bruce Willis didn't stop that asteroid how come we're still alive?
  4. That entirely depends on which direction it would be coming from.
  5. That's not always the case. Still, I have never seen the absolute cheapest thing also be the best.

    Thinking about getting back into posting regula…

    Oh yes, and welcome back
  7. It's far from an exact science right now, typically successful models are developed by researchers over years of work where they try different techniques to improve their results.
  8. Wait - this is that thing you need to pay to even use your internet connection on an xbox? Starting to sound like a really bad deal to get a console...
  9. An AI is only as good as the humans training it, and as you said yourself...

  11. maybe..? but I really don't see why, it's not illegal in any capacity and it doesn't hurt youtube's revenue...
  12. Kinda weird that these channels would be struck down for "hacking" when there are plenty of channels that show the command line and are doing just fine including some that straight up teach actual hacking for educational purposes like LiveOverflow.
  13. optic fiber is used to ensure that the signal isn't lost over long distances but with short distances copper cabling is fine, it could just be that the fiber arrives to a cabinet outside your house and the last few meters are copper.
  14. Define "universe". You can't simulate the entirety of our universe within itself simply because as far as we know it is infinite; however you can hypothetically simulate a limited one. As for how much data you would need to store per atom... you wouldn't actually need to copy the same data for each individual one, I hope you realize. All you'd need to know is its position, speed and type which you could compare with a list of atom types in order to get specifics. A bigger problem would be the uncertainty principle but because it is a simulation you would not need everything to be a
  15. Micropython is micropython so most programs should "just work", C will certainly require at least recompiling. Other than that the GPIO layout is not exactly the same as an arduino nano so depending on which you want to use you'll have to adapt your code accordingly.
  16. if that's your main concern you can backup the contents of your $HOME and reinstall, then copy the files back.
  17. It's a sponsor spot, not a review... the idea is that they are paid to show you the product, not that they're giving their personal opinion.
  18. Of course I can't know this, but is it that much of a stretch to assume that at least one LMG employee plays or has played RAID? Anyway, unfortunately almost all medium to large companies regularly engage in immoral behavior starting with YouTube so I'm not sure this is any worse than their other sponsor spots... LMG is a for profit organization and as such they're basically forced to engage with other companies whose practices they may not agree with. The only difference here is that RAID has bought enough ad spots across the website that some people started getting annoyed with i
  19. smh, why not the obviously superior pure bytecode? maybe try this? https://www.yoyogames.com/gamemaker or this? https://www.buildbox.com/ or something else that can be found with minimal research...?
  20. Your system is powerful enough that you won't notice a performance difference between most distributions. You don't seem to have any unusual needs so all major distributions would work fine for you and Ubuntu isn't a bad choice. If you just want to switch out of curiosity I would just try a few distros out in a virtual machine. As for what, if it's mainly for learning purposes then I would definitely recommend Arch Linux - it "forces" you to become familiar with a wide collection of command line tools and system configurations.
  21. perhaps you changed some setting in the BIOS that disabled booting from nvme...?
  22. then I'm afraid you somehow broke the Windows installation... or maybe the drive itself failed. check the drive's health in Linux, if it's fine then try reinstalling windows (backup any files you want to keep in Linux)
  23. It's not about whether windows was up to date, it's about whether you updated it after installing Linux. Sometimes windows update breaks things. Try taking out the sata SSD and see if the computer boots
  24. Are you using grub or just the boot drive menu? Did you update windows? What distribution did you install?
