@Seirdy They'll get away with it, perhaps with their egos slightly bruised and their clothes slightly burned in the intense escape that should arrive in panel 5. 😉

@Ray_Of_Sunlight not only windows … sadly.

What sucks is when those who break something don’t take responsibility to fix it.

Sadly they are hipper than the ones who don’t, because they move faster.

@ArneBab Lack of accountability? Sounds like come out from western women.

@Ray_Of_Sunlight no, what you say is bullshit. This has nothing to do with west vs east and nothing with men vs women.

@ArneBab I mean, if that's false, i mean, you can't place all the people on the same sack, that's a fact, but, generally speaking, how come a lot of women (From the US) are expecting to have the accountability of a child?

ArneBab@rollenspiel.social

@Ray_Of_Sunlight this does not match my experience at all — neither with women in tech nor with women in general.

Rather the opposite: they aren’t the ones arguing to move fast and break things.

So continue with that misogynism (via generalized badmouthing of women, whatever your experience in your life) and this discussion is ended.

@doctormo
At least after each Linux update, I get at least:
- A few percent performance improvements on features that I never heard of or only relevant on servers or IoT.
- Some interface changes on DEs or features that I don't use.
- Improvement on like Wayland, WINE, Proton, your DE or WM (bonus if you use GNOME), Flatpak, orr other apps,... after tons of infightings from the devs.
- Disrespect backwards compatibility and break standards (*cough* GNOME *cough* again)

@raghukamath I've started with #Debian 8... I can't tell how it was before but I've been satisfied with it from the first day
Since Debian 8 I've only tried KDE Neon for a while but it was too unstable & bloated for me, then back to a Debian and happy again :ablobcatrave:

Even more, since I came back to Debian, I've learnt to install my Debian in terminal mode (no desktop) and then proceed to install of a minimal KDE desktop to avoid to have all KDE stuff I don't use and don't want :ablobcatcoffee:

J'avoue n'avoir jamais cassé de système Linux involontairement ou le mettant à jour, pourtant j'utilise Arch. J'ai beaucoup plus de problèmes avec Windows (je n'ai jamais eu d'installation de Windows qui marchait + de 5 jours sans crashs ou ralentissements). Mais j'ai toujours mon dossier /home dans une partition séparée en cas de pépins.

@minixos Le truc et astuce est simple: avoir au moins 3 écrans (pas les même résolution et densité), tous avec le management des couleurs, colorimètre, une tablette graphique pro dans le lot, et un logiciel comme Krita qu'on pousse à 120% de ses capacités. On rajoute les milliers de packages pour diverse automations, un serveur local pour tester quelques sites, une bonne vingtaine de repo Git avec leurs propre scripts, et là, l'update en pleine deadline, ça commence à être quelquechose. 😉

ouf en effet, mais tes connaissances et ton utilisation de Linux sont beaucoup plus poussée que moi. Je suis encore relativement nouveau dans l'univers du libre et j'utilise Arch x XFCE parce que mon pc ne tient pas la route.

I’ve been annoying people for years by linking „volatile software“, „avoid soft trauma“ and „volatile infrastructure“.

I don’t understand why it’s so hard to understand that an update must not break what worked before.

Except that those who break things move faster, so they are celebrated as disruptors.
