Will it finally happen?

What do people even mean by "The Year of the Linux Desktop"? That Linux will pass Windows in the desktop computing market this year?

The Year of Open Hardware

It already happened for me, since windows 10.
Microsoft choose turning its OS into spyware.

What does RISC-V mean for its user's freedom? How is it different than any other commodity CPU?

>>5
you don't have to pay intel/amd royalties

7 2021-01-02 11:48

>>6
Next time just admit that is not different in any concrete way and is a meaningless buzzword.

>>7
Intel/AMD are closed source hardware.

Indeed, but even if it was not, nothing significant would change from the end users' point of view. "Open hardware" is "open" for the manufacturer, but not the consumer.

>>9
well technically, with closed hardware the manufacturer pulls shit like the intel management engine/amd platform security processor. thus, open hardware is different to the consumer if they care about privacy/security

I was under the assumption that linux was already growing rapidly.

Lignux has already been on my desktop for two decades.

comic sans should be illegal

17 2021-01-04 16:55

>>16
Its the only font that reflects the clown world underneath it all.

btw, Comic Sans won't work in kernel console, but there is a very similar bitmap font here:

Linux is for trannies now, the year of linux desktop is no longer a good thing

21 2021-01-05 08:30 *

All these engine transmissions with Linux all on a desktop. My, how technology technology develops!

All of it? I thought they only infested the Rust-adjecent spaces.

You will never have a chin
