we had a similar sign. it was required due a large number of contractors from india who didn’t use toilets in … appropriate ways

The anti-AI sentiment in the free software communities is concerning. (lemmy.world)

Whenever AI is mentioned lots of people in the Linux space immediately react negatively. Creators like TheLinuxExperiment on YouTube always feel the need to add a disclaimer that “some people think AI is problematic” or something along those lines if an AI topic is discussed. I get that AI has many problems but at the same...

I think conceptually AI is very useful and interesting, and as a general technical thing. But when we start talking about OpenAI and others, their methods for data collection, respect of licenses etc is where I (and I believe others) take issue

What AI means will change, what it refers to will change. Currently, the LLMs and other technologies are referred to as AI, like you say. In five years time we will have made huge leaps. Likely, this will result in technology also called AI.

In a similar vein, hover boards are still known as exactly that - like in films. Whereas the “real” hover board that exists has wheels. We didn’t stop calling the other ones hover boards, and if we ever get real ones they will likely also be called hoverboards.

Yeah absolutely. Theres space for “fairly trained” models (for lack of a better term). And I believe these exist? Or are touted to be so (whether true, who knows). Having some level of integration with the linux desktop in a way that keeps everyone happy will be a significant challenge

To be 🤓 really really nitpicky, and i’m writing this because I find it interesting, not an attack or whatever. A tongue in cheek AcHtUaLlY 🤓

GNU/Linux is the “whole operating system”, and everything else is extra. The usefulness of an operating system without applications is debatable but they 🤓 technically aren’t required to complete the definition of an operating system.

But this is also basically the debate of Linux vs GNU/Linux vs also needing applications to make a useful operating system.

Quoting wiki summary,

In its original meaning, and one still common in hardware engineering, the operating system is a basic set of functions to control the hardware and manage things like task scheduling and system calls. In modern terminology used by software developers, the collection of these functions is usually referred to as a kernel, while an ‘operating system’ is expected to have a more extensive set of programmes. The GNU project maintains two kernels itself, allowing the creation of pure GNU operating systems, but the GNU toolchain is also used with non-GNU kernels. Due to the two different definitions of the term ‘operating system’, there is an ongoing debate concerning the naming of distributions of GNU packages with a non-GNU kernel.

Well that’s the debate! Is it “GNU/Linux Mint”? What about the desktop environment, “GNU/Linux Mint Cinnamon”?

Don’t tell me …

Absolutely not telling you - just reiterating the ongoing debate

Helped a friend order and build a custom PC. His biggest purchase at the time, all the money in the world (not loads but to a kid, a lot).

Wouldn’t boot. Nothing would work. Almost in tears.

Send almost everything back to supplier

Three days later

“Hi the power switch was broken so heres a new one”

Never felt so relieved

Option 1 - trust the medical professional sat in front of me, looking at my health data and making informed suggestions

Option 2 - Trust the village idiots online who don’t trust doctors and would instead suggest many nonsense remedies

“Hello doctor! I read on a forum, filled with anonymous strangers, that if I dissolve all my medication in urine, it purifies it of all toxins! Can you vouch for that?”

Is absolutely not a conversation I want to have with my doctor.

its a valid question.

“Are they orders for whole planes, or for anything boeing might produce such as bolts?”

Does that simplify it for you? Careful crossing the streets
