    Thanks for the guide guys, downloading it now 👍
    I'm inheriting an old Haswell laptop next week, so I'm planning on installing on that
     
    EDIT: The ISO download and build took 15m 31s.

    duncannah got a reaction from Mel0nMan in Browser extension use on system resources in 2021   
    I have about 31 extensions installed, and I don't notice any substantial performance issues. What you should be aware of is extensions that add something to websites (thus injecting code), in my case I don't have much.

    Could've made the screen 1080p at least. What it should've been from the start. Such a Nintendo thing to do

    duncannah reacted to Sauron in Audacity classed as spyware   
    Wow, such sensitive data... the only potentially identifying information would be the IP address and the devs have stated this is only stored for a single day and not shared with other entities.
     
    Also this is opt-in, meaning disabled by default, so can we please stop with the senseless outrage? Do we really need a fork just to remove opt in telemetry and then just leech off the main project for feature updates anyway?
    Or just not opt in.

    duncannah reacted to AluminiumTech in Audacity classed as spyware   
    Audacity isn't spyware though. This is just a bunch of people on reddit upset that the Audacity devs are allowing opt-in telemetry cos Audacity needs to have error reporting info.

    duncannah reacted to flibberdipper in Chrome cpu usage is silly   
    Too bad everyone's beloved Firefox is just as bad, and in some cases, worse.

    And yet people will still beat off to it and say Chrome is some shitty resource hog.

    duncannah got a reaction from VFXGuy in are free domains (.tk, .cf, .ga, .gq etc.) a good thing?   
    Not really, in my opinion. In addition to the reasons that it's bad that you've provided, the registrar (Freenom in this case) has a tendency to seize domains and just serve ads on it when a domain gets too many hits. I knew someone who had this happen to them, wouldn't give it back even after offering to pay for it. Because of the spam, you can't really use it often, as the TLDs are flagged as spam and are not trusted. So, not good for using it nor in general

    duncannah got a reaction from igormp in Linux Sucks 2021, Agree or Disagree?   
    Well, that was a bunch of nothing (Had to watch it in x2.5). Most of the things that were talked about were management issues (people getting kicked out of things for being assholes, oh no), only one thing really addressed something about Linux itself (the complexity of the kernel) and maybe Google developing a replacement, nothing really about Linux as an operating system for users, or even just people running servers (I myself run one)

    I stopped watching Lunduke because I cannot stand his whining about "cancel culture" anymore. Don't be an a****le, and no one will "cancel" you, it's that simple. But, apparently, these days, generally being nice and respectful is too much to ask for people like Lunduke.

    duncannah got a reaction from DankDoodles in What are your backup file names?   
    When I name files and stuff by date I always do something like YYYY-MM-DD (format doesn't matter, it's the order), this way you can just sort them by date easily

    duncannah got a reaction from NZgamer in Q: What are some MacOS features that you wish Windows had?   
    I was a Windows user until about 2-3 years ago, when I switched to macOS (Hackintosh).
    UI consistency... A lot of things don't seem like they belong to each other, and also the current dark mode implementation leaves much to be desired. This is especially true with the Settings where a lot of the settings are still in Control Panel, or using old UI
    Quick Look is awesome, and I really miss it when I have to use Windows Spotlight (Although I use a third party replacement called Alfred) Freebies like iWork, GarageBand, iMovie, ... No ads, no trying to push you to use their services or browsers, no "online account" BS
    Search on the Finder is much better, I think
    Text still looks quite aliased on Windows... I know high DPI displays are getting more common, but they're not common enough yet... macOS is king when it comes to text rendering (IMHO) Open/Save dialogs of both first and third party apps function so much better on macOS... It's part of the OS; I can drag a file or folder into one, and it'll open the folder on the dialog, which is super convenient EDIT: Searching on the app menu bar
     
    I might add more if it comes to mind

    Meh, shitholes will always exist. It's sad but not much they could do
     
    It's still crazy how the app store is so region restricted, even the reviews are restricted to be only from your own country, which really sucks if you don't live in a large one

    You can load an OS into ramdisk (for example GParted Live has the option), but you still need somewhere to load it off of

    So, it's the same kind of shady shit that Aloha VPN did (sell bandwidth of users, which was inevitably used for DDoS) except now you get a small portion of the revenue...? Voluntary botnet basically 😬
