"Rewrite the internet in C"

We could call it … WebAssembly! And now it’s a C compilation target, which means we can run Node.js in the browser, to get a javascript runtime :)

This would somehow be worse than JS

If you are not talking about the past, present and future of Hannah Montana Linux I'm not even talking to you.

They also all need to be using librebooted computers (Thinkpad and Optiplex)

[-] Emerald 7 points 1 month ago* (last edited 1 month ago)

s/librebooted/canoebooted/

it's honestly quite strange. The Libreboot term has been known for years to refer to the fully free bios project. Then they merged osboot and Libreboot so now libreboot contains proprietary blobs. Then they decided to make a new project canoeboot, which is basically the new libreboot.

so they went from having:

  • osboot
  • libreboot

to having:

  • canoeboot
  • libreboot

All they seemed to have done is confuse.

yea, no thanks - "the grind" mindset is just capitalism worming itself into your brain

[-] [email protected] 29 points 1 month ago

yup, but the meme makes fun of that mindset and the original meme template in my opinion

Man, I wish there were more people around me who cared about discussing Linux and open source software. Only one person I know actually understands it, but he’s still running windows for games and programming.

[-] [email protected] 17 points 1 month ago

windows [...] programming.

People drink the Microsoft Kool aid, it's called money, they generally want it.

there was only space for 5 things ( *** Debloat Mindset *** )

I'll allow it. But I can't promise anything from the void crowd.

Every day this sub is in the active feed and I could not be more removed from the intended audience lol

[-] [email protected] 19 points 1 month ago

This will continue until you're part of the intended audience.

spoilerOkay, it won't stop even then.

Don't worry, once the others graduate school, break their arch install, and don't have the free time to reinstall it, they'll like Ubuntu too. 🙂

What if we discuss Debian?

[-] foggy 8 points 1 month ago

You're smart just not an elitist.

[-] platypus_plumba 4 points 1 month ago

What if I use Ubuntu but I'd rather talk about the kernel than distros?

Wait, there's someone here aware of hardened gentoo? Well I'll be damned! Come out of the shadows, fellas!

[-] bitwaba 6 points 1 month ago

I'm always hard when someone talks about Gentoo!

[-] [email protected] 3 points 1 month ago

Excuse me, sir, it's the Gentoo bits that are supposed to be hard, not yours.

On an unrelated note - I'm building a binhost. Currently stuck on trying to figure out a way of building packages without instaling them and not using quickpkg>

This is real. This is why my friends are lame now. Not the kids or jobs.

They're still on Windows

[-] [email protected] 9 points 1 month ago

People should be talking about void. Such bullshit. :p

[-] SkybreakerEngineer 7 points 1 month ago

But how can you talk about it if it has no type and no defined sizeof

[-] [email protected] 7 points 1 month ago

Ah, yes, ANOTHER post trying to make Linux seem impenetrable and elitist with an attack on Ubuntu - I swear you guys must work for Microsoft.

[-] [email protected] 29 points 1 month ago

Ah, yes, another user offended by a joke posted to a community with memes.

Ubuntu sucks. Not because it's for newbies, it's because better, new user friendlier options like mint exist.

Nah, that way, I can be the Alpha-Nerd in my circle, getting all the clout when I help them out with a command-line-command that contains awk.

Jokes on you! I'm older than 30!

[-] [email protected] 4 points 1 month ago

Hardened gentoo was great when grsecurity had their kernel patches opened freely to the public, but now idk. I'm more into hardenedbsd than anything gentoo nowadays.

[-] Shadowq8 4 points 1 month ago

honestly open source software is important.

I am a Microsoft user (sorry) but don't think my company will allow use of other programs due to software policy.

Is there an open soursce excel and powerbi / powerpoint thing ?

[-] [email protected] 7 points 1 month ago

LibreOffice Calc is pretty good. Your company can invest in a fork and it should do what you need.

[-] [email protected] 6 points 1 month ago

Power BI is a different kind of beast though. Soon only available as part of Microsoft Fabric, a SaaS analysis platform. Sure, the technically inclined can use Python/R/Julia with MongoDB, a set of SQL DBs, some CI and Plotly/Dash, but that effectively requires to have some Software- and Data Engineers on staff and some dedicated machines/VMs. Power BI / Fabric is much cheaper for small to medium sized companies outside of IT.

[-] [email protected] 5 points 1 month ago

Thats interesting! Thanks for elaborating.

I have never heard of it so I cant say if there is an alternative but I‘m pretty sure being vendor locked like this is MUCH more expensive than using a more complicated bit open solution in the long term.
