Seems very bare bones for a place that calls itself a zine. And it's only article has many spelling mistakes. I'd also argue the problems the author faces are already solved with Distro's like Ubuntu, Mint, and Pop! OS. I personally don't like the idea of centralizing Linux.

Depends on what for.
Ungoogled Chromium for my botnet stuff like G Drive or Slack which I need for my job, that's why they have their own browser I don't want google to read out any cookies.
Falkon for all nonbotnet stuff like imageboards and Tor when digging deeper.

Before I distrohopped I just brave for the botnet stuff (bc the inbuild adblocker was good when going on yt) and chromium for the normal stuff. But fuck brave. Not sure if I'm going to stick to Falkon but it seems okay, haven't really read into it yet though. I prefer it over Brave because I feel like a faggot with software like that.

I use ungoogled-chromium too. It's really lightweight and fast compare to Firefox. Aside from that, if you really want Firefox-like UI without botnet, try Librewolf if you're lazy or harden Firefox yourself

It just feels like soyftware. I see that they have useful inbuild adblocker and stuff, but you know something is off, if the logo looks like a it should attract fortnite-players. Also it's build on chromium so ungoogled-chromium is a better option, as it will always be the best chromium-based option. Brave really is just a good browser (imo) if you want to grind it's BAT, which kinda is the biggest cuckold-move in cyberhistory, as your sidehustle would be to let corpos rewire your brain into knowing their products and brands for virtual money that is owned by a big corpo.
Also there was that donation incident, where brave just "took" donations that were donated to creators via brave wallet.
>When Bitcoinist reported on the ability to tip content creators directly from Brave browser, that was a positive thing, right? Actually, not so much when it uses creators’ names and photos, to collect donations ‘for them’, without their consent.

When I was like 13 I experimented with 3L1t3 h4x0r tricks like batch "malware". So I basically wrote a .bat that would delete all drives and saved it in a hidden folder directly besides the porn folder. One glorious day I had an intense boner and needed to fap FAST. I accidentally clicked on the batch file and that was it.
Of course back in the days I had ALL of the good winXP malware sooner or later. Best one was that pajeet scam that made your computer boot into a bluescreen saying you need to buy some shit or call a specific number. Good ol' times.

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

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

Basic security programs: icecat, anonsurf, onionshare, i2psnark, truecrypt 7.1a, KeepassXC.
Encrypt with luks. Add password to BIOS. Only store glowie shit on encrypted external drives. Use keepass to generate and store all passwords. Keep master pw in your head and no where else.
Good email providers: disroot and riseup. VPN of course.
Alternatively, do what >>426 said and keep tails on a bootable USB or create a partition for Qubes for fedposting purposes.

 No.562

Depending on threat model, making something like Manjaro "extremely secure" might be more trouble then it's worth. A lot of the hardening comes from the kernel and having the right dot files / configs in place to make best use of those features. Even if Manjaro offers hardened kernel in their repos, I'd imagine the OS might have to be tweaked a bit to take full advantage of it? And depending on how motivated the glow-in-the-darks are, hardware can also be a consideration. Many of the pros try and exploit the hardware as well as the software. Some red teams having designated driver experts writing custom exploits in assembly on a case by case basis.
These anons gave good advice

>>561
>Basic security programs…
There's also Kodachi live boot OS. I can't vouch for it since I haven't taken an in depth look at it, but it's a thing and thought it might be worth a mention ITT. Also, Parrot OS is an interesting project.
As an aside, one can even pick up some knowledge by looking at how Debian, and even Ubuntu, configure their distros. INB4 UBUNTU REEEEE! I know Ubuntu default desktop leaks meta-data and their implementation of systemd is bloated and would require a thread unto itself. I'm only referring to the fact that Debian and Ubuntu are commonly deployed as servers and have some sensible defaults in that regard that might be useful for some to look into.
Also, building upon a basic Alpine install is another interesting option. Potential to have something with a very small attack surface and somewhat of a security by obscurity factor compared to other distros.

Technology can be old but gold, what makes it interesting to me is whether or not it is widely adopted and used.

Right now i am excited to get a Raspberry Pi and make my own VPN router, nothing new or revolutionary, just underutilized.

If you just want something new on the horizon then mine would be VR tech, defo some scary problems to consider, but that is what they said about the internet (and still do), i am hoping for a creative explosion like the start of the internet had back in the day.

Hopefully we can use VR to create new interesting spaces to escape the current status quo, if but for a time.

yeah, a big part of the issue is consumer grade computers and professional computers are kind of blurring together; you have spotty 13 year old boys in their bedrooms using rigs that would be powerful enough to be a professional workstation. if consumer computers get capped at a certain level, then hopefully consumer software stays less resource heavy. plus it'd encourage pro software (daws, 3d modelling software, etc) to optimize better to get to da consoomers
