I've been using a bunch of emulators, like Dolphin, to play the majority of my library of retro games. But, my laptop has weak specs and I want an OS that can be bring out the best performance and is good for emulation up to the GameCube.

I'm currently running Windows 10 version 1903 with a Laptop that runs on a Intel core i5-8250U @ 3 GHz with 8 GB of DDR4 ram. Been using the integrated graphics.

Linux noob here,

After learning about all the telemetry and spyware bullshit on Microsoft products i'm looking to upgrade to Linux. Currently i'm running Mint, but I feel like I want to go further,
what does /g/ recommend?

I'm looking for something fairly private, but still usable. I know I could run tails if I were really serious but the UX on tails doesn't seem like a good trade-off to me. Since everything is run through TOR, its gonna be slow.
Manjaro seems like it might be a good option but i'm not too sure...

Maybe just running Ubuntu with VPN/firefox will be enough? Again, Linux noob here.

I'm probably gonna pair it with firefox and a VPN as well for an extra layer, if possible.

Is there any Linux without GPL clusterfuck? No software respects our freedom if it is not released under MIT/BSD license.

Linux is fundamentally flawed because the old legacy cruft, it uses deprecated, obsolate privilege separation based on users and groups which is a security nightmare.
No linux can whitstand any physical attack without encryption.
Its is a security nightmare, and lets say it frankly: impossible to audit.
It still advertised as „secure“, while it is nothing else just security by obscurity and it actually cannot deliver the promises, as the CPUs have many known and plenty not-yet-known vulnerabilities.
Windows, mac and BSDs also flawed because the same reasons.
Accept the fact that you cannot have secure system from any mainstream provider, even if you can have the sources and compiles it from zero.
What are you do to keep your system secure? What kind of strange OS do you use?
Is there anything what we can do?
Is there any way out, or do we have to force-feed us with false-security forever?
Capitalism is not the best, but thats the best what we have?
Linux is not the best, but thats the best what we have?
When will we solve this flaws or do we have to stay in fundamentally doomed state?
Our OSs doesnt even tries to maintain the consistency of the system files, and the *nix like filesystems are disgusting.

Richard Stallman does make valid points about privacy and security and I'm not doubting what he's saying. However, In my opinion if an operating system is not Windows or MacOS it is still Free-er because you're not using a proprietary OS. If you think you want to go the extra mile because you feel you need to go ahead. You have many choices of operating systems and a few being 100% Free (as in Freedom; Libre not Gratis).

What makes GNU/Linux great is freedom (incl freedom of choice).

We call the operating system made by Richard Stallman "Linux".
We call the kernel used in Linux and made by Linus Torvalds "the kernel".

Got it?

Another hard day for *nix users lads. Honestly I feel sorry for them, maybe they're dumb but the companies should take care of their needs I think.

Nobody is jumping ship from Linux. Those of you meming this, show some respect. Those who actually care about this shit, great job at getting more triggered than the libtards you love to troll epic style.

Welcome to /flt/ - Friendly Linux Thread.

Users of all levels are welcome to ask questions about Linux and share their experiences.

*** Please be civil, notice the "Friendly" in every Friendly Linux Thread ***

Before asking for help, please check our list of resources.

If you would like to try out Linux you can do one of the following:
1) Install a Linux distribution of your choice in a Virtual Machine (like VirtualBox).
2) Use a live image and to boot directly into the Linux distribution without installing anything.
3) Dual boot the Linux distribution of your choice along with Windows or macOS.
4) Go balls deep and replace everything with Linux.

Resources: some useful commands:

$ man %command%
$ info %command%
$ help %command%
$ %command% -h
$ %command% --help

Don't know what to look for?
$ apropos %something%

Check the Wikis (most troubleshoots work for all distros):

>What is Linux?
Linux is a free operating system (i. e., like Windows or macOS) for personal computers created by Linus Torvalds in 1991. It can fulfill all your day-to-day personal computing needs, from word editing to web browsing!

>Do I really have to use the text interface (command line) to use Linux?
Not really, you can accomplish pretty much everything through the graphical interface. You won't be really learning about the operating system unless you do though.

> Linux users
Pragmatic and normally skilled in Linux and other operating systems. They have full control of their systems and normally work as system administrators and devops.
> GNU/Linux users
Activists who download and use Linux to feel good about socialistic views. Can't write a one-liner shell script. Unenployed.

How do you make the shell script read a color then display text in that color?

#!/bin/bash

clear
echo "What is your favorite color?"
read

for i in {0..7}
do
COLOR_VALUE="\033[1;3"$i"m Hello World"
echo -e $COLOR_VALUE
done

I want it to display whatever color I specify if I choose to

What happened to Linux? I don't see their operating system in stores anymore. Did they go out of business?
