Windows 98 theme, with microsoft mouse and running ubuntu on an ipad, yep, you have them all


fool126

The trifecta nobody asked for...


fool126

Hardware: iPad 2018 Mouse: Microsoft Surface Mouse Keyboard: Logitech K380 OS: Kubuntu Theme: Chicago95 What: iPad connected to a Linux VNC server themed like Windows 98 Why: diversity and inclusion Sorry for the abomination.


sgtholly

You were so busy trying to figure out if you could, you didn’t stop to think if you should!


fool126

Haha you got me. It took me 2 years to muster up the courage to post it here. This is from 2019. I eventually sold iPad and found a new workflow that suited me better.


fool126

My attempt at r/DiWHY


user18298375298759

For a moment you gave me hope that iPads could be booted with linux. I want to cry.


voidz-7

um nsfw ?


rugbat

Literally not suitable for work, I think is what is meant. As in, you won't get much work done with it.


fool126

Jokes aside, it's very much functional and powerful as I have full access to my desktop. I train machine learning models via this setup haha. and I read papers and annotated them on the iPad OS when I'm not doing any "desktop work"

noice


fool126

Noiiiiice


fool126

Because it's disgusting


DarkRanger919

I crown you the anti-fanboy!


fool126

Hours later, I finally understood what you meant! I try my best not to let arbitrary values in brand names influence my view on technology :p, it's difficult. Marketing ain't an area of research for nothing!


DarkRanger919

Lmao much love man. I mean, its just me; i dislike being overly attached to a specific brand. Use what you like and what's best for you. It also puts pressure on the market for companies to make actually good products/accessories rather than slap their names across smth and call it a day.


fool126

High 5 internet stranger! I wonder if it's at all a coincidence we share a similar sentiment, or maybe it is correlated to being a Linux user (hence philosophy)


DarkRanger919

I was literally about to say that this may be the reason why we gravitate to linux XD. It's the best tool we found and isn't owned by a company.


fool126

*virtual nod in recognition* I see you brother


justsomeprole

bah! Came here for bewbs :(


fool126

Sorry to disappoint :(

You're using Reddit light mode... absolute eye abuse...


fool126

In fact, I use light mode for everything. Until the day global dark mode, i.e., every app can be trivially converted to dark mode, I will not switch. I don't want to be using dark mode all day just to be blasted by a PDF or Google search's blinding white light. Hehe. Also I light up my surrounding to decrease the discrepancy between screen brightness and environment, which helps with eye strain.


Nfox18212

I think thats the best reasoning i’ve heard for light mode ever. Props


fool126

Thank you :D!! I do hope that one day we will have universal dark mode though!


Nfox18212

Opera GX has the closest thing to it by force darking web-pages, which only sometimes works. We just need all devs to make dark mode stuff or make it so that people can mod it in


fool126

Devs pls!!


Nfox18212

Uh Opera?


glaseren

Give it a few more years and it'll be universally adapted and be set as a new standard (that is until you visit an accident website and be blasted by it again lol). Besides, we're already making progress, Google search now has dark mode :p


fool126

Oh awesome, I was unaware of dark mode google! Gonna look into it. Thanks!


glaseren

I'm surprised Google didn't spam you with the dark mode notifications like it did to me lol. You can enable it by going to the Google search and top right press settings then there's dark mode under there.


fukwho

Literally got the same keyboard a few days ago.


fool126

It's a nice keyboard, enjoy!

fool126

I'm sorry :(


Nfox18212

But he did, and its horrifyingly beautiful


fool126

Ankit_raj-r

Ipad uses Nvidia?


wizzymore

ba-caa

Wow, I love this


fool126

Thank you!!!


EuroYenDolla

How in the fuck did u get Linux on an iPad


fool126

Nooo it's not Linux on iPad. It's iPad connected to a VNC server (Linux server)


natoniusmaximus

I’d be utterly horrified if I weren’t completely enamored with it.


fool126

I am flattered! Thanks!


sanjayt2810

Nsfw because of the word "porn"?


fool126

Nsfw because it's disgusting


sanjayt2810

Cool for me though


fool126

Yay :)!

r/screenshotsarehard


fool126

I wanted to capture the physical iPad and Microsoft mouse


Kylian0087

Ah oke. I take my word back then.


fool126

<3

I have the same Logitech keyboard, had it for years and it’s awesome!


fool126

It sure is! Although I have since switched to a trackpoint keyboard.


the_sealed_tanker

yes, I bought it recently. It's awesome


inn0ichi

Cursed


codegertass

How are you getting xfce to tile like that? I actually really like your 95 theme


fool126

Its not my theme, but look for "Chicago95" ;)
