Windows 98 theme, with microsoft mouse and running ubuntu on an ipad, yep, you have them all
The trifecta nobody asked for...
Hardware: iPad 2018
Mouse: Microsoft Surface Mouse
Keyboard: Logitech K380
What: iPad connected to a Linux VNC server themed like Windows 98
Why: diversity and inclusion
Sorry for the abomination.
You were so busy trying to figure out if you could, you didn’t stop to think if you should!
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.
My attempt at r/DiWHY
For a moment you gave me hope that iPads could be booted with linux. I want to cry.
um nsfw ?
Literally not suitable for work, I think is what is meant. As in, you won't get much work done with it.
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"
Because it's disgusting
I crown you the anti-fanboy!
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!
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.
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)
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.
*virtual nod in recognition*
I see you brother
bah! Came here for bewbs :(
Sorry to disappoint :(
You're using Reddit light mode... absolute eye abuse...
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.
I think thats the best reasoning i’ve heard for light mode ever. Props
Thank you :D!! I do hope that one day we will have universal dark mode though!
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
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
Oh awesome, I was unaware of dark mode google! Gonna look into it. Thanks!
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.
Literally got the same keyboard a few days ago.
It's a nice keyboard, enjoy!
what the fuck
When the parents get an iPad for christmas to replace the Compaq Pentium1 home computer.
you shouldn’t have done this
I'm sorry :(
But he did, and its horrifyingly beautiful
<3 thanks again! a beautiful disaster
Ipad uses Nvidia?
he's connected remotely
Wow, I love this
How in the fuck did u get Linux on an iPad
Nooo it's not Linux on iPad. It's iPad connected to a VNC server (Linux server)
I’d be utterly horrified if I weren’t completely enamored with it.
I am flattered! Thanks!
Nsfw because of the word "porn"?
Nsfw because it's disgusting
Cool for me though
I wanted to capture the physical iPad and Microsoft mouse
Ah oke. I take my word back then.
I have the same Logitech keyboard, had it for years and it’s awesome!
It sure is! Although I have since switched to a trackpoint keyboard.
yes, I bought it recently. It's awesome
How are you getting xfce to tile like that? I actually really like your 95 theme
Its not my theme, but look for "Chicago95" ;)
