The Sticky: /Ω/ 2.0This is new /Ω/, also addressable as /tech/, the technology board. The intent is that this board will be used to discuss use of technology and software and to share findings related to such. This includes single and multi user general computers, system administration, embedded devices, operating system software, program configuration, and computer networking.
IPFS GeneralHuh... where do I start...
sudo mv go-ipfs/ipfs /usr/local/bin/ipfs
ipfs swarm peers
PlayOnLinux and .NET Framework 4Until /sci/ or /tech/ return, or if they ever return at all, I'd like to share something with the Lainchan community here.
Sway WM.>TFW i3wm will never support Wayland due to being too dependent on X, and requiring a complete rewrite for Wayland support.
Computer technology sucksWe don't yet have any /tech/ board but I want to talk in lainchan about this.

Big vs Small Storage DriveSo, fellow lainons, do you prefere a big (Over 1TB) hard drive/storage drive to run your computer's OS, or small one (under 1TB)?
IT Careers ThreadHello lainons. Since you're on such a site I assume some of you make money doing something computer related.
100% Linux Now!Alright guys, I gotta brag for a moment.
Cybernetics, Technology & CapitalismI want to talk with you about how cybernetics and technology is attacking us and our future. So before we start i recommend to read this https://capulcu.blackblogs.org/wp-content/uploads/sites/54/2015/12/BandII-enbooklet.pdf first. I think its the best way to synchronize ourselfes to go in a discussion.
Protesting the Modern Laptop DesignThis is something that I assume most of you are participating in by having used Thinkpads, etc.
How do I get Linux to look like this?Hey Lainons,
greybeard confessionslets hear it. Greybeard vents, rants, and confessions from veteran devops, sysadmins, and programmers alike who are done with the buzzwords and bullsoykaf. shall I begin?
Amazon argues that Alexa has First Amendment rights.http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/gadgets-and-tech/news/amazon-ai-alexa-assistant-free-speech-rights-murder-trial-james-andrew-bates-arkansas-google-a7595376.html
Distributed Discussion SystemIt would be entirely possible to host a distributed discussion system just like Usenet using the same protocol. I didn't understand this until I looked it up, but Usenet is just a network of servers running NNTP software that syncs messages across the entire network. This is also the principle behind NNTPChan when referred to as the network itself, not the software by the same name, which is also just a few loosely connected servers that form a chan. Just think, anything is possible: your own local network for you and your friends, your favorite community ;), or for any other reason you want.
Lainchan wikiWould it be work creating a Lainchan wiki? Or would we just be reinventing the wheel?
Best/easiest Linux distro(s) without SystemD?I've been going at it with Linux for a good while now but I've mostly stuck to the it just werks stuff (Mint, Ubuntu, Antergos).
Retro Linux nostalgiaToday there is so much retro nostalgia going on, and since us 90's kids are now grown up, 90's stuff is now considered retro. However, for whatever reason there is not much retro Linux nostalgia going on.

Thoughts on Nextcloud and OwncloudHello, Lain.
Ideal Network and DevicesLet's do a little thought experiment, lains! What's your idea of the best possible internet replacement, and how would the devices connected to it behave, what would their design be, etc. Feel free to ignore today's limitations on technology if you like, and go as high-level or as low-level as you like. This thread is only meant to be a discussion in hypothetical terms, but if any of it happens to be practical that's fine too.
Chat apps rant...Every month or so one of my friends tries to convince me to install the latest chat apps. I mean, if I install every chat app that people reccomended to me, it would be in the tens of dozens. It's annoying. So I either just flat out reject them, or begrudgingly install the app. Even a lainon convinced me to use pidgin, and another one mumble, I haven't even used pidgin since, nor had any wish to. I think about mumble every month or so but I don't want to bother.
alternative language for cryptoThe free and open community urgent needs to explore a solution for developing crypto libraries and applications based on other programming languages, and interact with protocols as strict as possible.
Desktop Thread>>34134 reached reply limit, so here's the new desktop thread
What does Lainchan think of Ubuntu?I've been trying out different kinds of Linux, and I've been having problems with some of the distros I've used (Currently using OpenSUSE 42.2 Tumbleweed, but when I install new software through YaST it doesn't show up for me to use). What has worked for me in the past is Ubuntu, however I'm wary of them due to the Amazon adware.
Mandatory core/libreboot threadHello, lainons. I'm looking into getting a completely liberated laptop, like the ones many of have, I'm sure.
Seperate /home partition on kubuntuHello, Lainons. I've been trying to switch from Linux Mint to Kubuntu while creating a new /home partition. Now, my laptop just boots into GRUB and I have no clue what to do next. During the installation I created two ext4 partitions selected one partition (the larger one) as the mount point for "/home" and the smaller one as the mount point for "/" then formatted both. Now, when I turn my laptop on, it just boots into GRUB. Can anybody point me in the right direction?

ethereum tokensI've been getting more and more interested in Ethereum and the different Tokens created on it. the ones that seem interesting to me are 1ST (https://firstblood.io) which apparently lets you challenge people in e-sports for tokens and GNT (https://golem.network/) which will apparently allow people to rent out their cpu\gpu to render people's videos or whatever else people can think of and gain tokens as a reward.

Are smartwatches useful at all? Do these things have decent ganoo/loonix distributions? Are there any of these things with a physical keyboard instead of touchscreen bullsoykaf or a keypad? Normally I'm the kind of person who would avoid technology that is inspired by and is supplementary to autism rectangles, but I can't deny that I would really love an IRL COMP.

ClustercomputerI currently have 2 computers and one android phone (planning on buying another laptop or RPi). How can I modify the three to work on the processes running on my primary computer? For the sake of the argument, lets assume that I am creating a 200GiB encrypted container. How can the architectural difference between ARM and AMD-64 be handled while I am creating this container?
