Yeah like automatically downloading every damn thing you need a la sudo? I mean I used it when I was told to, sure I know how to remote into unix blade in retail stores and navigate all these fake ass virtual systems, yeah, it's fucking exciting as all fuck, don't get me wrong. I am fully vested in social security, I worked my whole fuckin life in IT, and I can live on < 1000 dollars a month. I live in a /pol/ based mentality, this tech board cannot understand, forgive me for abusing this thread. I pray OP will delete my posts.

After I wrote the above posts, I realized that, I love being baited by a snipey comment like that, "fuckin windows users" I have heard it my whole life from the old days. But see, when baited, I just eat the bait, the fisherman, everything. It's fun for me. Yet, not so much fun for the fishers.
Your point about hardware is fine, I will comment on some other thread you open here, please, let us keep this as a webm thread. But yeah.

No args per se. As username "smallpeeps" on ATS I long ago had a thread "Windows XP: Open the Code Now!" and it's out there, floating on IP zone. Yes, Microsoft i horrible templar flag based shit which Gates got money from his dad, to buy from some dude across the street. He is a total fucking moron, I grant you that. Bottom line is that back when the genesis of C64 to IBM/Apple happened, the nixer were uber wizards at that time, and remain so, but fail to see they missed their window. Artists like me hated Apple from the git go, but we needed machines that allowed gaming and expression, only IBM based machines did that. I am talking from even trying to do graphic with geo on c64 and Amiga, so this is an old conversation. I will go no farther than win7 but I know it' based and rooted, they can fucking see my desktop and fuck themselves at the same time, because in giving any artistic skills to the people, any expression, Microsoft and all tech wizard fascists, are doomed. Art beats everything, if done right.
This will go back and forth, I therefore cast "spell of deflection" into some other thread about "GLPtard Tech Argument Thread" I am up for that, copypaste my comments or link to that thread.. But for this webm thread, let it be enough for now.
