MagneticFusion,

Waiting for Calendar and Drive to be fully open sourced. I can’t find the source code anywhere.

MagneticFusion,

Im aware. But they are all under Proton. So I’m hoping to eventually see it.

MagneticFusion,

Yes it is pretty much Firefox with the Arkenfox user.js thrown in it on mobile

MagneticFusion,

github.com/arkenfox/user.js/

It is pretty much a file that goes into your firefox root directory and makes a ton of changes to hidden settings that hardens it and improves privacy and security.

MagneticFusion,

I’ve watched this video and it is a very flawed video.

Somewhere in the video he mentions something along the lines of “I’m not really worried because I’m not doing anything illegal” essentially implying if you’re not doing anything illegal then you got nothing to hide, which has been debunked many many many times.

If you want more rebuttals to this video check out this video by Top Spark: youtu.be/mScd7BUo86o

MagneticFusion,

I agree that Tom Spark does not have the best takes, mainly him showing some hatred towards Mullvad, but he still has valid criticisms of this video

MagneticFusion,

cant ever go through a Linux recommendation without seeing Arch, even if it’s a newbie trying tl switch from Windows

MagneticFusion,

Classic Lemmy mass downvoting everything that does not sit with their ideology without ever looking at the actual situation.

You are absolutely correct in that it would take at least a decade if not longer to build reliable public transit in all of America, ESPECIALLY in the suburbs to the point where you wouldn’t need a car. And to keep it real with you, I don’t see it happening for even another century. And that’s just one of the issues that’s leading to climate change. Much bigger problems like the top 1% owning 1000 cars and 20 private jets that nobody ever talks about. Always blame the average citizen rather than the ruling class, always tell the average citizen to be better than telling the ruling class to be better. Yea no major change will happen for at least another century. I know I will get downvoted cause this is Lemmy where people downvote anytuing that doesn’t sit with their idealistic non realistic opinions (that I tend to agree with but they are just not realistic for many reasons) but I couldn’t care less

MagneticFusion, (edited )

Unfortunately I want to say public transit sucks everywhere in America besides maybe NYC and some of the other densely built East Coast cities. I commute throughout Los Angeles (second biggest city in the US by population) and use the public transit there sometimes because I don’t have a choice (check my last post if you don’t believe me) and it feels like you are being punished for taking public transit. I don’t want to say that it is filled with homeless and is unsafe because I have personally never had that bad of an experience (although that is an issue that does need to be addressed if everyone especially younger women were to ride public transit), but the most frustrating part about riding public transit here is the abysmal planning of the layout. Every single public transit (specifically subway) map in the US goes through the downtown of the city with no other way around it. If you know anything abouy Los Angeles neighborhoods, you would know that there is no way to get from Westwood or Santa Monica to Hollywood without going through downtown, no way to go from Long Beach to Inglewood without going through downtown, and this leads to incredibly inefficient and time consuming transportation that just is not feasible for someone who doesn’t have time to spend 2 hours commuting back n forth each way everyday times a week. A ride that would be 30 minutes with car can take well over an hour with public transit here. So I’m not sure where the massive hate train towards cars on Lemmy comes from (maybe most are from Europe where public transit is actually good) but even in a majority of the big cities in the US it is practically unusable unless you have unlimited time to spare.

Edit: to continue on, the abysmal planning of these public transit systems in America are to be blamed on the lawmakers and the ruling class of the city, county, and also business owners who lobby public transit routes through their buildings, not the average citizen who bought a Tesla instead of using the shit public transit system.

Edit again: y’all are hilarious, downvoting me for literally describing the situation (I never even said anything of opinion) buncha butthurt degenerate tankies just mass downvoting everything

MagneticFusion,

I agree this is such an annoying UI update. I liked all the other UI updates besides this one

MagneticFusion,

Probably whatever default camera your phone comes with like Pixel Camera or Samsung Camera

MagneticFusion,

not sure why you are being downvoted but nah it’s Los Angeles

MagneticFusion,

Yea I don’t really know anyome who is a fanboy of Windows most ppl just stick with it cause its the default for many things

MagneticFusion, (edited )

That small niche that you are mentioning, I agree with you. But the people who for example turn down Linux because it is difficult, most of the times they would be right.

I know I will get downvoted but bear with me. To the average Andy who has grown up using Windows XP and then 7 and then 10/11, never having to open up a terminal, not dealing with software repositories and just downloading an exe from the web, and just having the most compatible operating system in pretty much any scenario, is more important to them, than the privacy and security snd freedom that you get with Linux, which as they say, with great power, comes great responsibility (and headaches). Yes, I know there’s Linux Mint, but for example something like my new laptops microphone not working with ANY distro because the kernel does not support it yet, that is a Linux issue that is a huge pain in the ass even for an experienced Linux user, let alone a fresh user who has no idea what is going on.

I still think we should push Linux as much as we can because as the market share increases support for Linux will also grow making it a more n more viable option to switch to, but generally Windows users turning down Linux DO have very valid arguments for not wanting to use Linux.

MagneticFusion,

oh trust me, it is pretty annoying to not have a working microphone in a day and age where zoom and teams are used at so many work places and/or so many job interviews. Having a dual boot just because of thator using my old laptop and also having to have signed in to my emails and blah blah blah is a major inconvenience that once again,the average Andy who does not care about the privacy or ads, just does not see it worth putting up with.

MagneticFusion,

Listen there will always be case by case scenarios but the fact of the matter is that there are WAY more things that go wrong on desktop Linux compared to Windows. Plus, who the hell is using Windows Server 2016 on their personal computer? Nobody. They are most likely running Windows Home or Windows Pro that came preinstalled on their laptop and it just works out of the box. In my whole life that I have used Windows I have ran into less issues that I had to spend hours searching online fixing the issue than I had to using Linux for the past year (and once again the problems I have been having are kernel dependent not distro dependent). I still use Linux as my main OS for 95% of my tasks because I value the privacy and security and open source nature enough to put up with the troubles of Linux. Preference and tolerance is not ab objective measurement. If Linux was already as easy to use and as compatible as windows, every single Linux user would delete their Windows partition and VMs and Wine wouldn’t need to be a thing.

MagneticFusion,

Horrible UI that I simply can not stand. But I do have it as a backup

MagneticFusion,

Could you please demomstrate where or how because I can’t seem to find it

MagneticFusion,

If he is using Windows in a VM, he probably already runs Linux as his base OS and is using the VM for a windows only app

MagneticFusion,

If only it was just them and not every car manufacturer
