What's your opinion on Mypaint vs Krita?


File: a4ef43bd7ea948e⋯.png (52.54 KB, 615x347, 615:347, oryx.png)




From my own perspective, I feel Mypaint is better but only because I prefer minimalism. When it comes to drawing/painting I really don't use 98% of what Krita has to offer and I barely even use some of the feature Mypaint has either. I rarely even use the undo button unless I make a major mistake. If it feels light, it's light and that's what Mypaint feels too me. Krita to me feels cumbersome (perhaps it's my PC) and working in fullscreen still feels dragging.

I'm sure Krita is better for others, but for me, there's too much in it I personally don't need.


>Thread has been here for a month

>No many new posts

>Not much new content

Is this the end, boys? I hope the Krita release thread at least makes things a bit more lively again.

your point?

<its like shitting in microsofts face



i think its funny how manjaro blew past deb like they are nothing, they will have a hard time passing mint tho, far too many normies hugging mints nutts

FYI- manjaro has an option for free or non-free install right befor you choose your liveboot or install option



Budgie is pretty okay, and I imagine it will be decent once 11 is released. The only issues I've had with Solus so far is the obnoxious lack of support. I'm willing to say that isn't Solus's fault though so much as retarded niggers packaging in .deb and .rpm, and either not providing the source or requiring fifteen different dependencies only available to debian, fedora, and sometimes arch based distros.

For suggestions on programs that aren't bloat refer to https://suckless.org/rocks

Acceptable GNU/Linux distributions that aren't bloat



>Debian(NET ISO)


>Void(Hipster but werks)


>Alpine(Pretty damn minimal)


Another protip to keep your system minimal is to keep your package count lower than 999.

Get recommendations to see if your system is bloat or not

>Image viewer

>File Manager

>Text Editor


>Web Browser


Protip: If you aren't comfortable with the terminal or aren't proficient with GNU/Linux this thread isn't for you.

Redpill me on these, are 128GB+ cards worth buying?

There's this problem apparently (which you may or may not have heard of): https://forum.acronis.com/forum/acronis-true-image-2016-forum/customer-advice-using-usb-sticks-more-32gb-will-not-be-bootable

>Be cautious to use any sticks larger than 32 GB capacity when you want to make sure that you can use them as a boot device, or to be recognized in your BIOS / UEFI firmware.

>Regularly I am unable to boot from a 64GB sized stick or being able to use it to flash a BIOS / UEFI Firmware on the mainboard because they cannot handle it correctly.

>This is especially the case when you are using such a large stick in UEFI mode, which needs to be formatted with FAT32.

>I have tried this on several computers of several age and all of them were not able to boot from this stick, nor being recognized correctly for flashing with BIOS / UEFI internal tools like Asus EZ Flash etc.

>I have contacted Asus and they confirmed that even the lastest UEFI firmware they have, do not support 64GB or larger sticks yet.

>So just in case you like to buy an USB stick, make sure that you consider the limitations.

Hence my question whether this is known to apply to SC cards as well or not.


for dumb storage, maybe

for security, don't even bother. Every card has programmable DRM, most times never documented; just like USB. The last good portable SSD were TF cards, since you had to program the bus instead to be able to read raw storage



You can’t crush them irrecoverably. Maybe flush them though.




You can swallow them and hope they don't cut your esophagus. Is stomach acid strong enough to dissolve them?

I've never seen this study you're claiming to have access to, but personal experiences and knowing a lot of other people who have multiple monitors tells me otherwise.

This is true


He didn't mention micropenis, and he isn't wrong. Most normies will eat it up later this year or next when apple makes ios apps run on mac just like google made android apps run on chrome


see >>868633


The gist is that more screen space is better, so of course your experience says so. I'd bet that those people using a single monitor didn't have a very big one




See pic related. The more people angry at you the more I know you're right. People (especially boomers) are resistant to change, even more so when it affects what they do everyday (shitposting)



>TVs and monitors are merging too

What the fuck do you mean? They're already the same thing, how in hell can they 'merge'?

>cinema standard is ultrawide

Then why the fuck are almost all TVs still 16:9?


>admit that 2:1 is superior for monitors in every way

No, 16:9 is the highest I'll go, 4:3 is too fucking small. 3:2 seems like the goldilocks zone for me.

There doesn't have to be a single point. In fact, we don't know if there's such a point or if the universe is infinite in all directions. You can imagine the expansion of space as tiny bits of new space constantly being created between all the other bits of space. Thus the distance is being increased between everything (and at an accelerating rate, because the more space is between something the more space gets created there!), although nothing has to move. This appears like a force drawing everything apart. On the other hand, electromagnetism and even gravitation are much stronger than this pseudo force, so you and everything around you isn't torn apart in a slow explosion. They keep everything together. Only on a much, much larger scale (think galaxy clusters), expansion of space becomes stronger than natural forces.

Another (probably inaccurate) way to imagine expansion of space is slowing down of the speed of light. Nothing moves and yet stuff appears more and more distant from another because force, including light, takes longer to travel the same distance.

Now that TOX development is basically dead, can we talk about other secure and Libre Voice+Video programs.

The front-runner appears to be GNU Ring, it's a very professional program that was adopted as an official part of GNU.

It has features like group voice (and video) chat and not to mention voice and video on mobile clients; both things that Tox lacks. It can also do full-blown VOIP+SIP, but that's optional.

What has your experience with it been?

>onion servers

I have taken the bait. Fuck my jimmies.



>Onion servers are not servers




You could use speach to text to speach.



So a single guy/organisation could just run most of the servers and if you'll use your own server there will be almost no users on it and it will be very easy to find out thats you.



Every federated system I know ties your identity to the server. The server own has full control over your communicates (obviously they cant read them or forge them). You cannot migrate between servers and are trapped with the host you picked initially. If you could migrate between federated servers it might be better. But as long as I have to depend on some asshole keeping their server up forever I wont trust it.

Everything. Keyboards were made the way they were for decades with ergonomy in mind, and were optimized for touch typists while normie plebs had to adapt. Chiclet nonsense turned this upside down and is designed so that it appeals to normie plebs hunting and pecking with their sausage fingers (hence big flat keys without curvature and without tactile feedback), and the touch typists were forced to adapt to this bullshit "lowest common denominator".

1.) Get an FPGA

2.) Design a prototype in a hardware design language

3.) publish the spec based on the prototype

4.) Contact a semiconductor fab and have them print a chip based on the spec

It will run you several thousand bucks or more but there's no reason you can't really
