If pine64 came out with a version of the pinetab with a huge amount of ram, and a gps, it would be perfect for "in the field" GIS work! I'm out here trying to figure out where my property boundary is with an android phone, and my county's parcel viewer, and it's absolute hell over cellular. If I could just get the whole thing loaded into ram!
Apparently there are in-board chip sockets that allow chips to be socketed without using any extra space. We have had these sockets since at least the 80s. Yet around 40 years later, laptop makers say that they "can't socket ram or cpus because sockets use too much space". So what, has technology regressed since the 80s, or are tech companies just lying bastards?! [puts on foil hat] or is it both!
So that I can practice C even when I'm away from my workstations, I've installed a C compiler on my Sony Clie peg-nr70v/u Palm powered PDA. It's probably amoung the less practical devices to program on, but at least it has a keyboard. (though my N810 still probably would have been a better choice).
However, this is just me, if you find window swallowing useful, please ignore me, or explain why you find it useful.
I finally found out what window swallowing is. I don't see why anyone would want it. If I run something from a terminal inside a DM, It's because I want to see the what's going on with whatever I opened. For an example, if I click on a program and it doesn't open, I'll run it from the terminal to see the programs output to see why it didn't open. If the terminal goes away, then the whole thing is pointless! One of the reasons I hate windows is because the command prompt doesn't show debug info
code of conduct controversy
I've heard there is a bit of a controversy about the Gnome code of conduct around it's handling of "isms". I'm certainly not an expert, nor am I on any "side", and I certainly don't mean any offence or ill will. I would just like to point out that the KDE COC doesn't mention any "isms", nor does it mention race or gender at all. And in imho, I think this is how it should be. These rules of kindness are universal, and apply equally to all. That is equality.
I'm a young beginning programmer interested in all areas of computing. I'm working on building my own game engine. I also love to tinker with hardware.
