According to this: https://madaidans-insecurities.github.io/security-privacy-advice.html Linux is bad from security perspective, author advises you to use WIndows 10 in S mode, macOS or ChromeOS for more securit. Is it true or he is biased?

No him. More retarded users leave Linux alone the better. No more freedesktop faggotry, shitd, dbus, all of those shit are because of having to cater to them which let (((redhat))) gained control over major distros. Side all you want with an inferior OS. Fuck off with that shit, more users is not always better. Majority of human living are niggers, go to Africa with them. Importing niggers inevitably lead to degeneration. Can't you see them same happening in your fucking country now? And you propose welcoming more niggers because they will be scared away? Let them be, better yet, keep them in Windows and Macshit. I am going to shill on plebbit and 4/g/ to make sure that happens.

The reverse psychology is working as intended.
Freedesktop, maybe. Systemdicks and dbus going away isn't going to happen as this is what the corporate sponsors of Linux want - FAGMAN, Redhat, etc. Doesn't have anything to do with normalfags. What could become worse is general userland experience, thanks to more software hitching itself to Gnomefags that will continue to poorly imitate Apple and development of Wayland being rushed to the point of creating a pile of shit full of security holes identical to X.

Systemd and dbus ARE Freedesktop. It's actually remarkable how much of the cancer plaguing modern Linux goes back to that group.

Lol, of course it's Poettering himself WONTFIXing it. The Freedesktop shitters have been on the warpath with static linking for a while now so it's unfortunately no surprise they'll happily break it. Seriously, read some of the dynamic linking propaganda. It's exactly the same kind of dishonest shit you see with systemd, Wayland, dbus, etc.

There's little PC hardware or software in the mag. Most the ads were for phone sex. The highlights I found were an electric male masturbator described to feel like "fucking a latex jellyfish", an anarchist BBS that glowed brighter than 8kunt, and pic related.

This could have been predicted by anyone who spent any amount of time on AIM or IRC. It used to be that normal people made fun of creeps pretending to be little girls, but now the lunatics are running the asylum.

Not in the land of the free yet, but if you want actual interactivity there's going to be a creepy tranny on the other end of the line. You might like this from the old /agdg/ though: https://viva-project.org/

Repost of the Julay /tech/ sticky with some minor edits: https://archive.vn/znAXT
Beginner Info
If you would like to try out GNU/Linux because of https://itvision.altervista.org/why-windows-10-sucks.html, you can do one of the following:
0) Install a GNU/Linux distribution of your choice in a Virtual Machine (preferably using KVM or Oracle VirtualBox for newfriends).
1) Use a live image and to boot directly into the GNU/Linux distribution without installing anything (keep in mind that the performance of live distros might be very different than from distro that was booted from your HDD, as most distros are loaded in RAM and don't include the proprietary drivers for NVIDIA GPUs or up-to-date Mesa libraries in their isos).
2) Dual boot the GNU/Linux distribution of your choice along with Windows (make sure to install Windows first, as it can "replace" GRUB or other UNIX bootloaders, and troubleshooting of Windows replacing your bootloader of choice might be painful for people that just started learning about the Linux kernel)
3) Go balls deep and replace everything with GNU/Linux (you really shouldn't do this, if you don't know what you're putting yourself into, see: https://itvision.altervista.org/why.linux.is.not.ready.for.the.desktop.current.html).

Use your web browser and search engine of choice. Good comparison between them is hosted here:
If not sure which browser to choose, just use the Tor Browser Bundle:
or paste these commands to your terminal emulator of choice (please make sure to first learn what they're exactly doing):

>if one library author fucks up, then 1000 people come knocking -- its a reasonably effective feedback loop where the developer always risks losing end-users by making irresponsible regressions.
that's a double-edged sword, they'll be paranoid about introducing new features because of the risk of breaking shit and having an angry mob outside their door because they accidentally put a space in "del /home /username/documents"
Replies: >>2587 >>2588
The entire thing is just very over the place and never really comes to a point. It felt like I was watching an old man talk about various things he's excited about. The closest related thing is to identify packages with their hashes (I believe Guix does this), but the only way this addresses the problem is if you reproduce the DLL hell of Windows, which I sure as hell hope you aren't advocating.

>they'll be paranoid about introducing new features because of the risk of breaking shit and having an angry mob outside their door because they accidentally put a space in "del /home /username/documents"
Well, they should. I know the space refers to a real bug, but if you have problems like these your review process it utterly fucked and you should fix that before pushing out any new things.
>they accidentally put a space in "del /home /username/documents"
It's a good reason to make a container that is used to test out which files and directories the installation of your program or library affects, as part of pre-release procedures. The times it happened was due to lazy and/or shit devs, see Valve and Steam deleting /usr.
Oh, didn't know Linux had this. That's a good extension.

Creating a file and immediately deleting it is an old unix technique for getting a temporary file nothing else can touch and that you can't forget to delete, I'm aware it'll be deleted after no process has a FD pointing to it.
It seems today's unix hackers have forgotten this trick, even the official flac encoder leaves garbage in the filesystem if you ^C it.

The thing is that it's perfectly possible for someone else to open the file before you delete it.
You can portably kludge it with flock(2), an exclusive flock lock can be obtained atomically when creating the file. This leaks the temporary filename and you have to remember to truncate the file to 0-length before closing it, because someone could open the file while it's visible in the filesystem and wait for you to release your exclusive lock to read your data.

This board desperately needs a CSS thread. Why the fuck have none of the retarded board owners given themselves custom spoilers? Why the hell do no boards have custom load bars? I had both of these on fatchan because a nice fellow made them for me when I requested it to Tom but Tom had better shit to do. As far as I can tell that's the only board on JSchan to have ever had custom spoilers or loadbars. What's your fucking excuse? Bunch of shitbird elitist faggots on this site can't even figure out custom spoilers. You're fucking plebs. Either kill yourselves or get in this thread and figure out how to do it for your boards on this site.
Also general CSS but I really wanted to stress that fuck you idiots you're slow and stupid.

Are you serious?
It's literal malware. Niggers inject arbitrary code onto your machine which you execute. You're literally running every fucking executable on the internet what the fuck nigger.

It's also a terrible language that can't be made to not be a horrible mess so even if what you were being served was open source (good luck parsing that shit yourself though it's endless copypasta of a million libraries poorly implementing the same thing) it'd be trivial for a hostile actor to obfuscate the fact that what they're serving you is malware, because there are a hundred thousand bugs and unintended consequences in javascript's implementation.
Replies: >>2289
Not defending js, but isn't saying it is malware a bit far? The language itself isn't, but it is prone to vulnerabilities like you said.
>You can also put !important after the value to override any other styles.

Android has been ported to a RISC-V board

January 21, 2021
Google’s Android operating system currently supports a handful of instruction set architecture (ISA) families, including ARM and x86. The vast majority of smartphones, tablets, TVs, and smartwatches that run Android today feature ARM-based chipset designs, as Intel has long since abandoned its handset CPUs while support for MIPS was dropped with NDK revision 17. While Google does not officially provide support for compiling Android on hardware based on the open RISC-V ISA, several development teams are working to run AOSP on RISC-V hardware. One such effort is led by T-Head, the business entity of Alibaba specializing in semiconductors, which today announced that they’ve successfully ported Android 10 onto its in-house RISC-V hardware.

A few months ago, PLCT Lab successfully booted Android to a command-line interface on a 64-bit RISC-V core emulated in QEMU. The team launched a project on GitHub they’re calling “AOSP for RISC-V” and are still in the early stages of cross-compiling AOSP and booting to a GUI. Meanwhile, T-Head, which designed the ICE SoC with its in-house, RISC-V-based XuanTie C910 cores, has managed to boot Android 10 with working graphics and touch.

The ICE chip from T-Head with 3 XuanTie C910 (RISC-V 64) CPU cores.

It runs quite slowly, as you can see in the video embedded below, but this is to be expected given the status of this port and the hardware it’s running on. In the video, a couple of stock AOSP applications are launched, including the clock app, the contacts app, and the mail app. More complex applications such as games aren’t shown off on this prototype as these apps would likely need to be recompiled to target RISC-V.


This Android 10 port is based on the android10-release branch in AOSP, and the source code developed by T-Head can be found on the company’s GitHub page.

There are some around on crowdsourcing sites. It costs a lot though.
No, it's not. It's proprietary.
There is a stripped down version called AOSP that is FLOSS, but with each new Android version Google releases a new component that apps rely on and only exist's in Google's proprietary version of Android which OEMs base themselves off of.
