Games go black screen if you try running them with open drivers. This could be hard coded.

NVIDIA open source driver
Basic question: why are NVIDIA open drivers unable to run games? Is it unable to run complex commands too?

Firefox trusts Rust, I distrust Rust. It’s as simple as that.

Rapping is very good, it’s like an evolution of Soul.

We will definitely fuck things up, the Anthropocene should never be a thing.

Why would you want an Operating System to rule them all?

If Windows commands the Manufacturer boot menu, that’s really a problem.

Switching to Linux using the Mint installer shouldn’t be hard at all. Don’t try using Windows options to do it, duh.

You need to set the boot mode into your Flash Drive before rebooting - in my PC it’s the F2 key for boot menu.

If you don’t change the boot mode it will always boot into the default OS that came with the manufacturer.

Lasers, graphene - those will be expensive logic gates. Why not use other kinds of light?

You people should really respect sex.

They can try. Don’t know if these involuntary virgins will get way to fuck even paying for it.

Anyone knows the function of this miner? It's bundled together with libexec, and [this](https://man.archlinux.org/man/tracker-miner-fs-3.1.en) website says it's supposed to mine data from the filesystem. Does anyone know if this info stays here inside my PC?

Torch package
Torch package is weighing 750 Mb, does anybody know why is it so heavy?

Let’s hope open hardware advances quickly now. This quantum bottleneck should take care of things.

It would be lovely to have computer electronic equipment easily distributed - at least they wouldn’t cut off supply this way.

Are proprietary drivers on Linux a possible privacy breach?
I want to know how much privacy I'm losing by using proprietary drivers on Debian for gaming. Can anyone help? I would very much like to know that. Can proprietary drivers fetch my activity on other apps I'm running on my PC, or on the Internet? And so on. Thank you.

Thank you for the feedback people. You make a good case for Fedora, as people have before - seems to be a good distro.

I was inspired to ask this because of the browser privacy article someone made. It made clear which browsers are private and which are not, and that’s good. I just hoped something would come along that would give me a guaranteed smooth Linux experience, as Firefox user profiles and Falkon do for privacy.

People complain about system problems after updating on the Manjaro forums. I don’t think I’m the only one having these problems.

I installed some things on AUR, but I don’t think I went too obscure. The most obscure things I downloaded were Debtap and text to speech programs. I also installed some bash programs.

Distro recommendation
I'm having problems with Manjaro again, always after those big updates. Anyway, I'm moving from Manjaro since it seems it will not work (authorization isn't working properly). I already tried Ubuntu before (used it for 3 months), but moved on since file management in Ubuntu is pretty bad (had to use terminal to copy files and format drives because system wouldn't recognize me as administrator). I've been using Manjaro for 4 months and it's really good, the update problems ruin it. Anyway, I was thinking of moving on to something like Linux Mint, Debian or Fedora. I wanted something with support and with people that care for the code. What do you guys suggest? I ask because I don't want to encounter another distro changing problem with my next distro.

Do you guys know a Twitter frontend besides Nitter?
Nitter is fine, but I want to login and make comments on Twitter, and the pages feed element is blocked for me. I need an alternative. Thank you.

Explain the concept of free software to her: that it is free to use for everyone, and reproducible in case the original programmers aren’t interested in it.

Since she is going to use it for her business, she will want to know if it can use peripherals well, which it can in most cases, and if it runs Office. The main document format of the world is .docx, so recommending LibreOffice for the regular user isn’t a good idea since the document isn’t translated well after edited by LibreOffice. I would recommend OnlyOffice - it’s like Google Docs in its features, but it works offline. And it comes bundled with Manjaro, which is an easy to use distribution.
