lisp and forth. They both have the idea that a language should be able to expand with new syntax to create domain specific languages (DSL) to solve problems more easily.

I found this project recently. It's and alternate client for Discord (and slack) and although not open source you could probably trust it more than ((((discord)))). It still seems to be in beta though, there are some unimplemented features and logging in is finnecky. But once you get it working it's great for power users.

Debian and KDE because to compete with Windows and Mac sooner or later there has to be a single best GNU/Linux/DE and I'm pretty sure that this will be a (or is) Debian with KDE.

Debian because it already is basically the best OS for servers and one of the most used GNU/Linuxes (Ubuntu is based on it too), it's the most stable and secure and it's 100% free and open source. It is built by a large community following the Debian Social Contract.

KDE because it's the most sleekest, modern and convenient and has a lot of features but still follows the principle of "simple by default".

Also both will run on the upcoming Librem 5 smartphone.
https://puri.sm/products/librem-5/
It's a truly universal operating system.

Debian needs a little more time and KDE needs more bugfixes. So maybe especially as a newcomer you could also consider KDE Neon. It has newer features and is easier to use but it's based on Ubuntu and I'd switch later on. I consider the other options mostly as a waste of time and resources. Just use and improve Debian and KDE right from the start. For example you can easily install newer on Debian too. The installation and configuration has been made easier with the latest upgrade and Calamares.

Here's a demo of KDE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TXWUyUUx3ZE

 No.176[D]

>>175
> I don't understand why power users hate Mint so much.
Because Mint is just a worse version of Debian/Devuan, and the only reason to use it over Debian or Devuan is that it is easier to use (the same also applies to Ubuntu.)
The reason why some power users dislike Debian is that Debian stable doesn't have latest versions of packages because Debian stable only gets security updates (this is easily fixed by switching to Debian/Devuan testing or unstable)

>necrobumping a shit thread
Anyway....

There are actually valid reasons why vim is not as good as some say (I am not going to comment on its philosophy or default keyboard bindings) :
- It has a lot of legacy cruft (can be fixed by switching to neovim or ed)
- Vimscript (the language that's used for developing its extensions) is crappy (can be fixed by switching to neovim)
- Vim is not POSIX compliant (this doesn't really matter in practice, however)
- Gnu Emacs has better documentation and tutorial
- It's a lot easier to customize and extend Gnu Emacs. elisp is also way better language than vimscript
Also emacs isn't nearly as bloated as some say, since Gnu Emacs is, in fact, a lisp interpreter that's just specialized for manipulating text and building a text editor, and the Emacs' core, the lisp kernel, is actually rather small and most of Emacs' functionality is build using elisp.
If you want, you can actually use evil-mode to emulate vi(m) in Gnu Emacs.

tl;dr
Install Gnu/Emacs, open it and type ctrl+h t
Install evil-mode, if you want to.

this whole board is dead.
anyway, i don't use vim often at all - only when there's no nano on the server i use at that time. when i'm programming i use whatever. it's not like you spend a lot of time using a text editor when i develop shit anyway.

In the words of George Carlin, the planet will recover just fine. It's seen far worse than us. However, we are going to get FUCKED one way or another.

If you choose to use the installer .iso to install a GUI, you must run sudo xbps-install -Su to install updates after installation. If you set Network as the installation source, you can easily install a GUI after installation by running:
sudo xbps-install -S xorg xfce4 linux-firmware wifi-firmware bash-completion
The -S option causes xbps to first sync the list of available packages and the -u option performs an upgrade.
If you want to also have a graphical login screen, follow these instruction: https://wiki.voidlinux.org/Post_Installation#Display_Manager
If you need proprietary software or microcode for your Intel CPU, you must first enable the non-free repository, like so:
sudo xbps-install void-repo-nonfree
and then install the microcode and everything else you need:
sudo xbps-install -S intel-ucode dwarffortress
and finally, regenerate the initramfs and update grub:
sudo xbps-reconfigure -f linux4.19 #replace the version number with the version that you have installed

Does the 2nd law of thermodynamics imply the extinction of humanity?
You see, entropy always increases in a closed system, such as the universe. That means that the entropy will get higher and higher. But human bodies I'm pretty sure aren't peak entropy. At one point to grow further entropy will have to destroy all human bodies. Any sorts of computer human replica too, and I'm pretty sure anything that can move on its own/think. Entropy is disorder, and those two things require some order.
Am I wrong? Is there something I'm not considering?

 No.151[D]

>>149
As we understand it, yes, the laws of thermodyamics does imply that humans, and everything else in this universe will all end up a giant cloud of weakly interacting particles. However, scientists don't estimate that happening for another googol years or so (a 1 with 100 zeroes after it). That's plenty of time for humanity to thrive, flourish, and potentially maybe figure out a workaround for the whole entropy thing. After all, something had to put our universe into its initial high-energy low-entropy state, so who's to say it can't happen again?
