I feel kinda comfy here.
Maybe this wasn't a bad idea after all.
Thanks for saying so, hopefully it will turn out okay and the /tech/ people will come around.
It's nice in here so far. Actually getting traffic too.

The misses watches last week tonight with john oliver. It is seriously corrupting her revolutionary potential with some cold hard neoliberal properganda. Ive tried showing her the empire files debunk of Venezuela but oliver did, but she wasnt having any of it. Plz halp! She also watches Samantha bee which is fundamentally worse
>She also watches Samantha bee
You should probably just put her out to pasture.

Ikr? But the weird thing is shes been in one union or another all her working life. And Im not claiming that unions are more revolutionary, just the fact that she is aware of class, but now its;
>poc this
>woc that
>aoc said this
tbh lots of unions got pretty diverted yeah.
In my view, intersectionality just means that all these struggles (or at least, their material basis for being a struggle) intersects at class.
And that therefore, the best way to ensure everyone's rights is through the class struggle.
The US had to fight many decades for women's rights, and many more for black people's rights.
But in the GDR, USSR and Rojava, it's included in the package.
Ultimately, the left needs to get rid of the image that it's only for minorities. The white male worker shouldn't feel afraid he would lose his voice.
Nobody wants that.

Many questions for you nerds:
1. What would be your recommendation for a person who is relativly new to linux but has some coding experience? I was thinking mint because its just easy to use and i used it back on my old laptop and didn't require as much work to maintain in general but im also worried about le spying.
2. What would be the best video editor I can pirate for linux? I want to keep making videos to spread class consciousness and am currently using Sony Vegas. I heard that davinci resolve was good but was wondering your suggestions.
3. Also, is gaming on linux actually okay now?

1. It's called GNU/Linux: https://www.gnu.org/gnu/linux-and-gnu.en.html Here's the list of recommended distributions: https://www.gnu.org/distros/free-distros.en.html
2. Blender is cool, you can also check out NATRON.
3. Gaming is never okay.

thanks for the recommend
>Gaming is never okay.
fugg u, I also make games
Well said comrade.

>I also make games
That's some times okay *see >>>/e/400. Anyway you were already told about Blender, which also does 3d modeling. GIMP would be good for making textures/sprites, Krita is supposedly much better, but I have my doubts that it would be nice for making pixel art if that's the route you're interested in. I don't really know anything about sound design other than practical effects are some times used, maybe you could do that. On the engine front here are some quality maintained GPL ones (specific to make my life easier):

?3. Also, is gaming on linux actually okay now?
Really depends on what you want to play. There has been a definite recent uptick in Linux game ports over the last several years, particularly in the indie scene. While an unfortunate number of them are technically Windows games running on .NET and using the Mono framework to interpret it in a Linux environment, this is still some significant progress. Wine has also made strides in running modern Windows games if you're into AAA/DRM-infected trash. If, on the other hand, you have a fondness for older Windows games, the Wine project has been breaking stuff for WORKING old games and then refusing to ever go back and fix them for some time now. Finally, if you have a fondness for old console games, then the Linux emulator scene is very healthy and in fact is the go-to system for trying to reduce input lag for certain emulated hardware.

Apparently some tard deleted the /tech/ thread and moved it here while I was in the middle of replying to it. Consider this copypaste charity and possibly the only post I'll every waste here on /hobby/. See you guise on lainchan.
Cmon man, what's wrong with just using this board?

Emma Stone is an amazing actress
shes hot but average acting at best. Why exactly do you think she is "amazing"
She makes me weak comrade
I think she had extractions which is why she has those terrible nasolabial folds.
>she had extractions which is why she has those terrible nasolabial folds.
does that translate to the dentist fucked up her face when pulling out teeth ?
Yes but pulling back the front teeth to close the gaps they created made it even worse.

>You get a rare straggler like @media queries for pointers and hover which were only added in firefox 64 (and so aren't in firefox-esr) but those are pretty rare.
Amusingly the last firefox-esr to not support @media (any-pointer: fine) and similar media queries had its support dropped yesterday.

I was bored, so instead of fixing the broken part of the CSS I posted yesterday I decided to write a Red Yotsuba theme. Maybe a little too breast cancer awareness, but I like it overall. What do you guy's think?

It's possible to make really clean CSS theme selector using custom properties and <select> tags, I might do that next and just have a dark, yotsuba, and red yotsuba theme.
>that subtitle
Can you explain that please?
Like, they'll be up on the gallows and once they get hanged they start trying to bid for the noose while they are gasping for air?
It's a Stalin quote, if I remember correctly he said this while the Soviet Union was buying massive amounts of foreign equipment to modernize manufacturing. GAZ is a good example of a factory made in this way.

In the case of a /tech/ or /g/ type board the implication is that we can use the technology that the bourgeoisie provide us as weapons against them.
>It's possible to make really clean CSS theme selector using custom properties and <select> tags, I might do that next and just have a dark, yotsuba, and red yotsuba theme.
I was kinda dead wrong about this, it seem barely even possible to have a theme selector of the sort I was thinking. I guess the way to solve this then would be to have slightly different URLs for each theme. Some sort of simple subdomain would likely be best. A bit disappointing though.

A leftist /tech/ board is great! Let's use it more, comrades!
Are any oldfags around who had the joy to come in contact with pic related or other micro electronics from real socialistic states? Sadly I was born too late to have a opinion on their products.

I read DDR lightbulbs were more durable than the western ones because they had no planned obsolesence; what do you think would our society today look like, if more elecronic products like smartphones were designed with a much longer lifetime in mind? Would the use-value of the products stay the same over time, or would it decrease with technical progress?

You get more standardisation, less form over function sacrifices (works better but has worse design), as far as durability goes , it depends long lasting batteries are just hard to make, what you definitely would get is better repairability.

For smartphones you'd probably would have seen magnetic field tracked pens (used in graphic tablets) rather then the currently capacitive touchscreens, because the magnetic pens are easier to make and more precise, Resulting in a renaissance of handwritten text and social/cultural trends/development around penmanship and quick sketches.

You'd probably would have seen a universal interface scheme, where all sorts of devices no longer would have buttons and nobs but rather an IR-port that turns your smartphone into a remote for everything. Also a much greater R&D focus on sensors turning smartphones in a portable scanner.

Since socialism has a sort of protected commons that isn't at risk of being enclosed, you'd see more people contributing to projects like user-generated "cartography" type stuff where people digitize "note-worthy" features of "meat-space". Enabled by the scanner functionality.

>Would the use-value of the products stay the same over time, or would it decrease with technical progress?

I'm not sure what you mean with this, you might get better backporting for software to run on older technology, because there aren't any IP laws blocking people from pruning software to make it run.
I've been trying to find some more information on the original systems operating in the Soviet Union. Especially those earlier systems that showed some promise and interesting features. I've been looking specifically at the BESM-6 due to the ample documentation available. The most interesting features to me are the system of modes, and bit packing, both of which seem very odd but interesting to me, oh also it's RISC which is nice. The CPU was also developed under the name Elbrus into the late 80's which is unique, and was reasonably competitive at the time. The Elbrus-3 which was a completely new ISA with novel VLIW capabilities was also competitive.

Would any of you happen to have any information on the MIR «Машина для Инженерных Расчётов» machines? I'm struggling to find any information on them but they sound fascinating especially concerning "a hardware implementation of a high-level programming language capable of symbolic manipulations" which reminds me of the exceptional Scheme-48. Also it seems to be immensely capable for its size. Thanks in advance!
Unfortunately it seems there is very little information on this machine on the internet. I found a few Russian PDFs which I was not able to machine translate, and a few websites which I was, none very informative. It's extremely interesting though, here are the web pages I was able to find, you'll have to use Google to get translations unless you speak Russian though:

Oh and hear is a interesting detailed website dedicated to the computers used in Soviet rockets. I haven't finished reading it yet:
Apparently someone managed to squeeze a UNIX V6 clone onto the BK-0011. I don't even like UNIX and I think that's pretty cool! https://github.com/sergev/bkunix
I meant SCHEME-79 here, which was a hardware implementation of Scheme Sussman, Steel and several others worked on together. Scheme-48 is a fairly standard Scheme implementation although it has PreScheme as a intermediate language which is a bit interesting.
