Is that Windows 10? Jesus Fucking Christ, OP.


> W10
Get. Out.


There are five reasons why I have to use Windows.

Hint: They're all on my desktop.


ssssshh. they don't get the concept that some people actually have to use their computers to pay the rent and buy food.

also inb4 use gimp and inkscape

also also inb4 use wine


I use Debian as well. You don't have to choose.


>Bitches at OP for using Windows.

Get Chromium.

lol, I use whatever the hell the task at hand requires, I don't buy into the evangelism. If I need to complete a task that requires windows then I'll use windows, if a task requires linux I'll use linux. anyone who tries to tell me what I can and can't use is an authoritarian as far as I'm concerned and does not respect my freedom.

But Windows 10 is objectively terrible, bloated, and inefficient.

Chromium and Chrome are virtually identical, barring their status as closed- or open-source. The only real reason to choose Chromium over Chrome is purely ideological unless you actually plan on doing something with Chromium's source code.


File: 1492694198317.png (56.71 KB, 1600x900, 2017-04-20-011038_1600x900….png)

keep it relatively simple
why would you trust google to not include malicious components in their builds that aren't in chromium? furthermore there is zero reason not to use arch's chromium package over chrome.


chromium has some "problematic" components stripped as well, which is an added bonus


I have quicker boot times and less ram usage than W7/8/8.1 ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. Likewise the telemetry while fuarking creepy (and it's present in 7/8/8.1 as soon as the W10 migration tool gets loaded by winupdate) it can rather easily be blocked at the network level.

If my hands are tied and I have _no choice_ but to run Windows, W10 is pretty comfy compared to it's predecessors. It gives me a slicker more consistent UI than 8/8.1 and it gives me multi-workspace support.

I mean it's not linux+WindowMaker and never will be but that's why I own multiple machines.


I know this is a bit off topic, but you can do more than just edit the hosts file. If one must use Windows for whatever reason, it might be worth taking a look.


Yeap. Hosts file will do it, but I've got a network bandwidth monitoring/controlling application that I use to prevent svchost eating my entire smol ADSL pipe, and it also has built in rule definitions for blocking telemetry (and you can see how much traffic has been caught by that rule).



Some problematic components are out, but frankly, not enough of them are. Chromium still uses plenty of remote connections to Google services.

Many of the alternative Chromium builds that are aimed at the privacy-conscious have their own issues, ranging from the untrustworthiness of their corporate backers to sporadic releases that leave security holes unpatched.

What's a wallpaper?

Sarcasm aside, I see the computer as just a tool. Compiling themes, wallpapers, fonts and color-schemes to visually unify all the programs under your control is a… waste of time. Nevertheless, I do enjoy seeing what other people do. I'm just not so inclined to do it myself. :)


Is it a waste of time if we enjoy it?

Just out of curiosity why elementary? Slow release cycles, a design style that simple strives to rip off macOS, what's the draw for you?


1. It's Linux
2. I can change anything I want and remove the restrictions if I really wanted to.
3. I don't have a mac anymore, a gtk theme like mine makes sense if i'm a mac user. whats the big deal.

The draw: It just worked. So I can work.

Parabola Gnu/Linux-libre with dwm, dmenu, st and tor-browser-en onscreen. For some inscrutable reason, the vast majority of characters on st and every character on dmenu is a wingding, but not on tor-browser-en. I'm working on that now.


could you describe your experience with Parabola? Have you been using it for a long time? I have been looking into GNU/Linux-libre distros and pretty much dismissed everything except Trisquel, which I am using on one computer currently, because other libre distros seemed like dead or near-dead projects; also, I was advised against it, and Trisquel fitted my specific needs for this computer.
Was I too hasty in my dismissal of other libre distros?
Would you describe it as just Arch, but with libre kernel, or have you experienced any other issues?

Here are pictures of both my Laptop and Desktop.
My desktops a bit more proprietary.

It shouldn't be something to be proud of that to work you have to violate your own freedoms. However, I can at least sympathize with OP for having to use such software.

Nice, Always like some WindowMaker.

Looks a lot like macOS, Pretty clean look.
(Not going to judge the distro, you can make it whatever you want)


>could you describe your experience with Parabola?
Tricky and finicky, but so satisfying when it works. It's a very cathartic thing, and I like the feeling of UNLIMITED POWAH over my fully libre, highly customizable setup.
>Have you been using it for a long time?
Gad no, only a month. I have, in the past, used Kubuntu, Lubuntu, Crunchbang and TAILS. This is a bit of a step up!
>Was I too hasty in my dismissal of other libre distros?
There's merit in using Parabola if that's what you're up to. I'm in a pretty good position because my house has a soykafty old Win7 trashbag that I can use in a pinch if mine doesn't work, but if I didn't have that option I might have to depend more on a good out-of-the-box distro. In the end, Parabola is no less of a good idea to use than Arch, which is to say: a terrible idea, but only if you've made the wrong choice.
>Would you describe it as just Arch, but with libre kernel, or have you experienced any other issues?
I've never used Arch. I don't think there are any differences other than libre kernel and a lack of non-free repositories for pacman by default.

I hate windows, but holy fuck how did you do this.


not him

it's simple. you just install bblean/blackbox/or whatever, patch widows reg and apply theme
more info here

ricing widows is a hassle and you can easily brick your system. use gahnoo/loonix


it always ends up looking like fuarking trash with window borders flickering back and forth between BB/Windows decorations.

I haven't bothered with alternate window managers for Windows in a while as a result.

If you're stuck running Windows, W10's interface really isn't that bad.


It's still bad tbh.

Still waiting for fluent design come out.


How do you like xmonad? I've never used it


Feels comfy.
Still trying to mimic features from i3 like modes and mouse resizing of tiled windows, though. But overall only positive experience.

He means blocking it on another computer the W10 computer has to go through to access the internet. Like the router. Though I Heard W10 "breaks" if you block telemetry like that.

this i3 and polybar.

well, install i3.
keep open the i3 user guide so you can always use as a reference, it explains everything very clearly.
just install it and read some docs ( there' s not other way around it.
also, do you really need tiling? you could start ricing openbox since you already have that.
if you need help with something specific just ask.


nah, it doesn't.

obviously if you go full paranoid and block all the update servers you're going to be sitting on a rotting pile of unpatched vulns but that goes without saying.

>Not using autohiding the taskbar

Yeah, y'all don't understand the concept of having multiple computers. Only one of mine runs Windows 10, not just because I got bills to pay, but also because I need to constantly use Windows to learn more for my IT job. I also need Win10 for FL Studio, sure I do use DAWs on Linux, I just work best in FL.

Unfortunately, Linux is mostly used for servers and Windows is used for desktops so that's what I have to study.
