wtf
CandyGumdrop
Well not really a game. More like some furry orgy simulator thing
stateless
lol
Evil_Bob
CandyGumdrop: just install archlinux

CandyGumdrop
Arch Linux gives you the badge of a wannabe on screenfetch though
openfbtd
What doesn't?
It's like
A distro that is easy to set up? Pfft nooob
stateless
Evil_Bob, https://imgflip.com/i/ooaar
there I made a meme for you
:P
openfbtd
A decently flexible distro that requires prior knowledge? Wannabe
CandyGumdrop
Gentoo makes you look cool though, not a wannabe
openfbtd
LFS? Tryhard
CandyGumdrop, that is extremely childish
stateless
I should have put the text at the bottom :P
CandyGumdrop
stateless: That would send a mail after the update has finished successfully though
stateless
Evil_Bob, https://imgflip.com/i/ooacs
CandyGumdrop, yes fixed
:P
CandyGumdrop
It would make more sense to send the mail then start the update, stateless
Or even better, "pacman -Syu || mail ..."
stateless
thing is you cannot rationalize this
pacman can succeed at screwing up your system
also every arch fan boy believes pacman is awesome and is not prepared to send a mail in advance
CandyGumdrop
When I used to use Arch Linux, it was actually very stable and pacman never broke anything
stateless
yeah
you had to check the news site or some crack before you could proceed
CandyGumdrop
I think Java occasionally broke and you had to do some kind of manual intervention, but it was already in a script which was there already and it tells you what to do on the front page of the website
stateless
lol
yes
CandyGumdrop
I think they just do stuff like that to make people feel like they're super cool hackers manually intervening on the update, while making it as easy a process as possible to make them feel clever
stateless
let's move /sbin to / this time
CandyGumdrop
Well I have this badge now so I look a lot cooler and have a different set of problems http://a.uguu.se/hrdhrw_2015-07-25-200639_576x329_scrot.png
I hate how bloated and slow portage is though
Evil_Bob
lol stateless
CandyGumdrop: try alpine linux
its very fast
but speed isnt the most important thing
CandyGumdrop
That is musl though so might not work with binary blob games
stateless
CandyGumdrop, http://u.2f30.org/sin/2015-07-25-201115_1600x900_scrot.png
:P
openfbtd
Proprietary games don't work on Alpine, yes
dsockwell
ok
i typically ignore graphical customizations
openfbtd
I would use it instead if that was not the case
dsockwell
but stateless your terminal is sexy do you have a config published?
stateless
*foreground: #ffba00
*background: #040418
*cursorColor: #ffba00
:P
lol
CandyGumdrop
Second Life isn't proprietary, but it uses blobs for a couple things. Also I doubt all programs would work very well with sndio
stateless
well you fix those that you need
:P
Evil_Bob
CandyGumdrop: just use windows for games
CandyGumdrop
Windows isn't as good for games
Evil_Bob
are you on crack?
CandyGumdrop
The window manager on Windows is fiddly and makes it hard to do stuff like playing games
Evil_Bob
k, nice troll yo
dsockwell
i'm generally in favor of experimenting but you deserve everything you get
CandyGumdrop
Why do you say that, Evil_Bob ?
I always find that on Windows when playing games in fullscreen, everything goes weird and blank for a while and sometimes crashes when switching to different windows / workspaces
Evil_Bob
k
atmc
stateless: is this still sourcecodepro?
stateless
yes
can't get used to other fonts
so I don't bother switching anymore
openfbtd
Evil_Bob, I'm with CandyGumdrop here, I dislike how Windows handles... well, windows.
Fullscreen is an actual mode there, which screws with everything else
stateless
maybe you guys are too sensitive
when I play games, I don't switch windows
:P
openfbtd
It's not a decisive reason for not using windows for games, but it's legit annoying
Yeah, well that's the difference. A lot of people play games in binges, you sit there and play hours at a time without distractions
CandyGumdrop
I don't see how people can be bothered to reboot and use an operating system which does nothing useful other than playing games
openfbtd
I play in small bursts, which means I actually need my bloody work environment.
dsockwell
yeah typically if i play a game in windows that has helper software or i want to waste time
i have a spare computer
stateless
CandyGumdrop, you don't need to reboot
have another machine
I don't have a windows box but I have a ps3 for years now
openfbtd
Not everyone can afford two good machines.
CandyGumdrop
It's not worth carrying two ThinkPads around
dsockwell
there's another solution
stateless
well I pity people playing games on laptops :P
openfbtd
I can't anymore, Russian economic situation is complete sh*t :D
dsockwell
a vm with vga passthrough
stateless
dsockwell, you need linux for that
:P
openfbtd
In any case, haven't been desperate for a windows-only game anyway
For years now
dsockwell
only on the host
CandyGumdrop
There's no games I play which don't work fine on GNU/Linux though
stateless
dsockwell, yes but I don't use linux :P
openfbtd
GTA V looks really fun, but eh, screw it.
dsockwell
xen?
openfbtd
Terraria's on linux now :D
stateless
dsockwell, I don't know, I stay away from this stuff
