Switched to an iPhone 11 5 days ago no regrets
So a week or so ago I made a thread asking people to talk me out of switching to iPhone from galaxy, and I have to say iOS has come a long way since I last used it. The only thing I used to the benefits of android for was go on 4chan and read hentai. Well here I am phone posting and I’m reading hentai just as easily as I used to. Siri voice assistant pleasantly surprised me she’s actually useful and I can disable her sending info to Apple. Which reminds me. It’s do nice not having a google integrated phone. I hate google more than any retarded An-drone could possibly hate Apple.
iMessage is really good and you can have a lot of fun texting girls and this display is fucking bomb. Yeah I miss the headphone jack but literally I’ll manage.

I took a photo of my cat and nearly cried at how good it was after YEARS of every galaxy I’ve ever had taking blurry dog vomit photos it’s finally nice to have a phone that takes crisp clear photos.

The navigation gestures were a little unintuitive at first but if you aren’t completely retarded you’ll get the hang of it in a couple hours
Fuck huawei and chinktech

tl;dr Android in 2019 is overrated. iOS just werks and has decent features with a great camera

Alright, /g/, I'm gonna need IT support here.
So this new PC that I got (it's an OEM machine, laugh at me because I'm a poorfag) came with Windows 10 and lets just say most of my performance with this damned thing has been quite spotty at best. Some apps I used to use apparently don't install, other classic games I used to love also don't work, and I'm on the fence here.
I attempted to install Windows 7 onto my old HDD which I ripped out of my PC and was using as a second storage disk. (Don't worry, I backed shit up.)
When I got to the installer, I had the warm welcome of a fucking mouse and keyboard not working like it should. I later found out this is because my machine has USB 3.1 as opposed to USB 2.0, since Win7 was released in a time where this wasn't a thing.
Alright fine, I'll slipstream some drivers for USB 3.1 and this 9400F to see if that works. Did everything I could, and absolutely nothing. Even tried different drivers like ASMedia or some other thing insteald of Intel eXstensible.
I even tried ripping out my old HDD in this OEM tower and smacked it into my old computer and installed Windows 7 on that instead. Worked like a charm, and then I placed it back into the PC and used EasyBCD to switch to it.

Got a winload.efi error. 0x000000Ce. So, what the hell do I do? Do I give up? Or can you guys give me some sort of help here, as I really want to have Windows 7 back. I've heard that Windows 8 is closer to 10 than to 7, so that's not what I want unless you're here to prove me wrong.

Please send help.

Hola, buen dia. necesito su ayuda, le quiero regalar un celular a mi sobrino, solo que tanto sus padres como yo, tenemos incertidumbre sobre hacerlo, debido a que en ocasiones pasadas, llegaba muy tarde a casa, no sabiamos donde ni con quien andaba, tememos que tenga malas amistades, navegando por internet, encontre una app o software, no lo se, donde una persona podía conocer el lugar de la persona, sus chats y llamadas y eso es lo que nos importa, esta mas tranquilo ultimamente, pero aun así, quisieramos "poner a prueba a mi sobrino", alguien podría ayudarme sobre como instalarlo o algo asi? por favor :(

Hi good day. I need your help, I want to give a cell phone to my nephew, only that both his parents and I have uncertainty about doing it, because on past occasions, he came home too late, we did not know where or with whom he walked, we fear he has bad friendships, surfing the internet, I found an app or software, I do not know, where a person could know the place of the person, their chats and calls and that is what matters to us, is calmer lately, but still, we would like "Test my nephew," could someone help me on how to install it or something? please :(

Why is /g/ and the whole tech community against any form a pragmatism nowadays?

Minimalists push minimalism just because, to the point that they go about the most autistic way to have their distros work just to get the attention of other equally autistic enthusiasts.

Normalfags and Hipsters either go with the most convenient or with the most trendy, eventually they develop a cult like mentality with their tech to the point of enjoying getting cucked by it.

Why can't people go with stuff that is minimal when efficiency is desirable and bloat when you need to get things done fast and don't have the time to get something efficient set up?

Frequently Asked Questions:

>Which version should I download?
>How can I activate LTSC?
>What does it have?
>Where can I download LTSC 2019?
see paste

>Do I really need to debloat it?
No. It already comes without the majority of preisntalled UWP apps.

>Can you get the ryzen scheduler on LTSC 2019?
No, and never will.

>Can I change to LTSC 2019 without reinstall?
If you are running LTSB. Otherwise, it must be a clean install, unless you do the hack in the paste.

>Can I change to Enterprise or Education without reinstall?
Yes, with a generic volume key of those versions, see paste.

>Is Windows 10 1909 OK?
Yes, but only the Education or Enterprise edition.

>I already use Windows 10 1909, can I debloat/debotnet it?
Yes, there are scripts for that on the Internet. As a first step, change edition to Education / Enterprise if it isn't one of those already.

>Can I use Optimize-LTSC on 1909?
No, but there is Optimize-Offline in paste for that.

>I already run Windows 7, but don't want to clean install?
The installers (not the LTSC one though) can upgrade

>How do i update to 1909 from 1903?
Select the optional update in Windows Update

Ah Windows XP, those were the days where you only needed 256MB of RAM and Office 2003 apps would instantly load on a Pentium 3. It's really quite amazing just how efficient code were back in the day.

Nowadays a website can cause a quadcore i5/i7 with 16GB of RAM on a SSD to slow down and lag behind. Like the new Reddit Redesign thanks to the memory leaks on Firefox.

What the fuck is going on? Why is Windows 10 so slow and sluggish despite running hardware that is magnitudes far more powerful than what we used on Windows 2000/XP. If you had a decent PC Windows 2000/XP had nearly instantaneous response time. The software was far more responsive than lagshit web2.0/windows10/nutella botnet cancer we have now.

I want to go back. Computers were unironically faster when they were actually on slower hardware. There is no excuse why modern hardware performs the way it does with all the bloated trash that is going around.

/g/ & homesteading
Evening. I want to get a career in Comp. Engineering, and go into IT. I'm still new to it, being a freshman in college. But I have this interest for a long time, working with technology. At the same time, I want to own a farm, or at least be semi rural. Cause living in a city doesn't feel like me. It'll get too crowded, price of living is going to be more expensive, and many other trappings can come into factor. I want to make crops for food and have a small amount of livestock to take care of. Yet, I still would like to set up a PC, Wi-Fi, and other necessary tech accommodations to work on projects, and have a good lifestyle. Plus, I want to do audio engineering soon.

Tl;dr Does anyone have this thought of homesteading, while still using technology, and having a career in a tech field? Is it viable, and would you do it?

anime girls using thinkpads
Previous thread: >>73957140

Don't buy anything OTHER THAN IBM/Lenovo ThinkPad T, X, and W/P Series if you want the Real Business Experience™

Models before *40 series can be Corebooted

NEW: T440p is now supported by Coreboot

Help me pirate this mouse
Does anyone have a corsair dark core that they could photoscan for me? Basically put the mouse down on a well lit, non reflective patterned surface and take pictures of it from about 45 degrees up from horizontal. You take a picture, step to the side by one foot take another one and keep going until you've walked around it in a circle.

I can then take the pictures and use photoscan software to make a 3d model which I will customize and 3d print. The guts will come from a donor chinese mouse.

Data Analysis // Music Production Build

Hi! Link above is my build plan. I was just wondering if you guys could notice any pitfalls in my design. The PC will be used for my work (Data Analysis, SQL Server...) as well as music production (Pro Tools & Ableton).

Unfortunately, my budget can't go far above where it's currently at. I was thinking maybe I should spend less on some of my existing components in order to get a better graphics card?

Any help would be greatly appreciated! :)
