Hello, this is not a shill post. So I decided to create my own chan in python as a hobby (using the flask library) and this is what I have come up with so far. Just give me feedbacks here in this thread or there. Currently you can only upload jpeg , jpg , png , gif below the size of 4mb. https://rikchan.pythonanywhere.com
That's cool. I'll check it out so I can get my information stolen.
>>739 Lol I barely check the access logs

So, I'm finally tired of being a slave of windows and I want to get into linux. I really love KDE Plasma but it is just a DE from what I could understand, and I must choose a distro before. What's the best distro for someone who can't even use git? I don't want any botnet crap btw
3 posts omitted.
>>680 See this list. Probably pick one with KDE as default. https://www.distrowatch.com/search.php?desktop=KDE+Plasma#simple
>>682 This, Cinnamon Mint is easy to use, looks lovely and functions well.
>>680 If you want the easiest one I would recommend > Kubuntu > Manjaro KDE However, both aren't 100% FOSS by default. (They are mostly, except for some drivers and a few other things) If you're looking for a 100% FOSS distro (Not as noob friendly) I can recommend: > Debian (You'll have to install KDE yourself)
Just dive head in and get Arch Linux there are so many guides to hold your hand through out the installation. Ubuntu is bloated and filled with spyware, avoid that cancer.

>2020 and still having facebook >2020 and still trusting companies with your personal info What is this amatuer hour? Phone; Get a prepaid burner phone and automatically pay for it with a cash card you can get from Dollar General. Every month destroy it get a new one. Banks; Do you not know about the Bahamas? Get a plane ticket for 500$ off season an do your buisness their retard. the rest you can do electronically. Buttcoin and cash for everything else. Internet; VPN, Cafe, Steal your neighbor's Internet. What else do you need?
>But Bahamas and that's illegal!! It's only illegal if you don't report putting in as much as 10k and if you don't fill out your FBAR. Mongolia has banks with intrest rates as much as 13%. HSBC (Hong Kong) is a good way to store money and open investments into Chinese buisnesses (it's a growing market). Swiss Banks; Good chockate I guess. I am not saying to do anything illegal, this is all legal. just hypothetically if you wanted to open an account offshores there are many banks for that. I don't even currently live in America, my VPN does.

Windows vs Linux Anonymous 02/01/2020 (Sat) 10:15:05 No. 718 [Reply] [Last]
Base up, W10 is superior. Easier, more efficient, better support and compatibility, less hassle. But for the die hards, why is Linux better to you?
(136.48 KB 1280x721 Olimex-a64-olinuxino-rev_c-id.jpg)
It's not like I'm married to Linux or anything. I also use other OS like OpenBSD or whatever else runs on my hardware. Well except crap like Android and Windows.
>>718 I only use linux because Windoze is essentially spyware. Maybe I'm a bit schizo and naive, but I've been told Microsuck screencaps usage for development purposes, and I don't agree with that type of thing.
>>718 Easier? Sure for many people but many linux distros are comparatively easier. You can even choose "difficult" distros that have automated install scripts for things like Gentoo or Arch and install visual desktops and package managers. You can get the best of both worlds without paying and being owned/spied on by your software. If you're using Windows and coming on these boards there are likely a few individuals interested in exploiting your windows machine that already have backdoors anyway. >better this and that I'll tell you. When I had a friend that updated to Windows 10, the first he complained about were the updates and getting stuck on shutdown and boot processing said updates. I currently then was trying a few distros with literally all of them working like a charm. With linux you don't get that pozz without seriously fucking up, and when you get more control that can lead more efficiency. I won't run windows on my machines over the fear of persistent intrusions and malware. If you're choosing a distro don't choose it by what comes preinstalled unless you don't want to install more software by choice. You can install many softwares without prior bloat depending on package repositories, or limitless opinions if compiling by source. My last windows OS was XP because of Vista infamy.

Wtf systemd is garbage. Solution is pajeta making qubes with new init.
Fedora is pretty secure if you know how to use SELinux.
>>700 >making qubes with new init. Can you guys send me a step guide or manual? I seriously don't want to learn years of computer science just to make my laptop wear a metaphorical condom.
I tried to use Qubes and it didn't fly so good. You have to already be a VM networking pro at your day job to get Qubes Whonix to actually work right, I think. I kept leaking my real IP so I gave up. Also Qubes requires a fairly modern, nice cpu (needs tons of virt. features) so you can't just run it on any old laptop. I wanted to like Qubes but it's not ready for """""regular linux users""""""" yet in my opinion. The new hot thing for medium-plebs is ~Wireguard~ since it's supposed to be less code so it's harder for glownigs to hide shit in. So I would look at the wireguard website and pick an appropriate distro if you're a noob guy. Maybe you computer prose can do stuff on Qubes, but I can't. I would probably Fedora 31 or Rawhide if you're feeling like Linus Man or Ubnutu 19.10 (Eoan Ermine) if you're not. Ubnutu kinda has shitty behavior regarding sending out network requests though...
