Re: Google, Apple and Microsoft.

Google are #1. I think that Youtube is trying to steer me to be politically extreme so it will have more control over my attention. It's really very dark. I won't use Facebook because it's disgusting. It should come with a health warning.

Re: Google, Apple and Microsoft.

I think that Microsoft and Apple were evil initiates for creating and pushing the concept that end users are licensees and not true owners of hardware and software. Google rapidly became evil by embracing and extending the notion that users' data is their data. I see Microsoft and Google as equal o...

Re: The new computer build

Thanks for the input! And yeah.. I like my stuff to last as well. Not into overclocking either here. Pretty much the same way of thinking as you do :) Do you have the standard CPU cooler that came with the Ryzen 2600? Or? How are the temps on that CPU? I'm using the stock cooler, which is the small...

May I ask why? Using timeshift all the time to revert to a previous state, when messing around with something.
And it worked flawless so far.
Just in case it gets further messed up :confused:
Another vote for Timeshift. For me, it has been reliable and simple to use.

Re: Microsoft would like to bring Edge to Linux

Microsoft keeps cozening up to Linux. I'm curious what their end game may be. I'm thinking that they might be considering getting out of the operating system business in favour of selling their other products as services. Consider that their recent track record hasn't been all that stellar: - they ...

Re: Microsoft would like to bring Edge to Linux

I would consider installing it for one thing: Netflix Currently, if you want HD Netflix on Linux, as far as I'm aware the only route is to use a plugin for Chrome. If it worked out of the box for Edge, I might try it. FWIW, Edge currently is the only browser that does Netflix in 4K. No other good re...

Re: Things Break

I really don't want a smart fridge, even if it's running linux. Just not enough advantage for the additional complexity. Some things are worth it. A computer is a lot more complicated than paper and a pencil, but I would presume that everyone on this forum thinks it's worth having a computer.

Re: What opinion do you have on the Cloud?

My 2p. "Cloud computing/storage" is neither good nor bad. It has pro's and cons same as anything and you need to think about your use case. Some of the cons are associated with some of the well known providers are that they are closed source platforms, don't provide sufficient security/privacy and/o...

Re: Things Break

Is it about trying not to be a victim consumer? To think through your purchases and which things are meaningfully functional, and which are junk.

Without knowing for sure, I'd predict that Linux users have a relatively high proportion of people that think about the above.
