What got you into Linux?
43 posts and 3 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.

 No.445

Windows 8. Bought a new laptop with win8, then was made unemployed. Lived in a micro apartment with only cold water and next door to a factory. Depression set in.

Decided F* it, win8 is a horror show. Had played with Linux before (dual booted Fedora at university / well meaning parents bought me the RedHatBible when I was in high school) and just went full Linux this time.

Haven't gone back since. Main issue these days is finding a place selling laptops (often refurbished) without a win license tacked onto the price. Still poor. But at least my pc does my bidding.

I don't remember exactly why I got into linux.
I think I decided to set up a dual boot setup on my old laptop after reading about it on LifeHacker (I think). I didn't like it at first, but I did kind of like it. Now I can't imagine ever using Windows ever agoin.

Have you ever operated a chan?

What does it take, in terms of memory, CPU, bandwidth and disk space to run a chan? Let's suppose it's at wirechan's posting rate.

What software is best? Vichan? Lynxchan?

This site has "edutainment" videos, if I understand correctly they are uploaded by youtubers (i.e., it's not an unofficial mirror).

Does anyone here use plan 9/9front?
Not my picture, but i've been working on moving my work flow over to it.

ave mostly just had hurdles with hardware support (motherboard/buggy eufi firmware related issues)
other than that, I am liking it a lot. Might do drivers on here

Also, if your the type of user who is used to googling quick fixes, you might not like this, there's a lot of mandatory reading.

I wanted to use linux for everyday use while windows for gaming, so i dual booted manjaro and windows 10, but the parititon for manjaro is only 2gb and i cant increase it around 100gb, so now im going to use windows 10 for everything else normally while linux manjaro for tor browsing and wasting time ricing it up but i still want privacy + security on my linux so what should i know, install, or do in order to not be spied on by glowies?

Why can't you resize the partition?

 No.434

Resize your Windows partition and encrypt your linux partition with luks or something like that. Instead of default windows bootloader get grub ot refi

 No.435

shrink your windows partition and leave some space for linux. if it doesnt let you, it might be too fragmented

This is a pretty exhaustive place for comparing VPS providers: https://lowendbox.com/

Also, I just found this dedicated server provider: https://www.kimsufi.com/en/servers.xml

The prices are insanely low considering that these are dedicated servers, not VPS's. For example, you can get 4GB of RAM, 2TB disk space and a two-core Intel CPU for €6 a month.

Standard for what? for hardcore gaming maybe, also for Pixar level modeling or Hollywood level video edition, for other tasks no, I run a lot VM and I don't need more than 8GB, of course when I do that work I only can do that work, same with video edition and other similar tasks. Of course if you use a super bloated system even 16GB eventually become not enough.

Depends on the OS. Windows 10? No.
Linux, bsd or otherwise (excluding solaris or anythhing using zfs)?
Sure, it's fine.

As long as you avoid like KDE or gnome or whatever. I am at 193mb idle with windowmaker and like 12 dockapps

I use one as my 2nd monitor. It was my family's first monitor, and it still works pretty well. 1280x1024 at 60hz, but i run it at a lower resolution to get 75hz out of it.
I don't use it as a main monitor because I enjoy the sharpness of my 1080p 60hz asus monitor. On my main, my sharpness is at 90/100.
