When you're asked if you prefer x11 or Wayland, but you like titties.

[-] constantokra@lemmy.one 8 points 2 weeks ago

Tiv will handle that on the tty just fine.

[-] TrenchcoatFullofBats@belfry.rip 3 points 2 weeks ago

"Fine" being (arguably) marginally better than attempting to decipher a scrambled cable channel that could be either the softcore channel or a travel documentary - either way, you're looking at something that rhymes with "complicating crank".

You peasants debating over compositors and window servers.

I only interface with my computer over a headless terminal that prints the output using a matrix printer in another room. I programmed my VERY OWN hangman game, and no, you can not look at the source code to find the answers because I OBFUSCATED THINGS, you absolute lump of failed carbon.

[-] TunaCowboy@lemmy.world 27 points 2 weeks ago

What a bloated workflow, just connect your oscilloscope via UART and decode via RS232.

[-] grue@lemmy.world 18 points 2 weeks ago

a matrix printer in another room

It's "dot matrix printer," you phony!

[-] sep@lemmy.world 3 points 2 weeks ago

We absolutly dropped the dot from the word in informal speak. Probably 2 days after owning one.. "matriseskrivar" was much easier than "punktmatriseskrivar"

[-] callyral@pawb.social 9 points 2 weeks ago

you can not look at the source code

so you made a closed source software?

Look at this scrub, they didn't even put the whole dictionary into their code and tell it to choose random words.

[-] onelikeandidie@lemmy.world 7 points 2 weeks ago

Look, another failure. A dictionary is clearly bloated when you only want words that can be played in hangman! 3 letter words and bellow comprise way more memory overhead than required for a good challenging experience.

[-] agent_flounder@lemmy.world 5 points 2 weeks ago

Sorry my DECwriter jammed up on that last bit after "absolute", could you repeat?

[-] Bishma@discuss.tchncs.de 23 points 2 weeks ago

My wife complains about not being able to hear the TV over the teletype, but I keep telling her it's the only way to get the true user experience.

[-] agent_flounder@lemmy.world 6 points 2 weeks ago

I should really upgrade to 300 baud. These posts are taking forever to read.

[-] Andrew15_5@mander.xyz 4 points 2 weeks ago* (last edited 2 weeks ago)

I also want to have a clicky mechanical keyboard! /s

[-] Bishma@discuss.tchncs.de 6 points 2 weeks ago

And a clicky mechanical display!

[-] 018118055@sopuli.xyz 7 points 2 weeks ago

Headless + ssh

[-] abbadon420@lemm.ee 7 points 2 weeks ago

Also, I've got like 9 of them. So that's 9 times better.

I mean... yeah? Its actually hardware accelerated too, and mpv can play videos directly on it

Valve be like: Jo we make like a wayland compositor, ya'now?, and it will be like super performance oriented for games 'n stuff, ya'now?, and have dis super bleedin' edge hdr pipeline, ya'now?, and then it will only support xwayland, ya'now?, dude why ya leavin'?

Just use Wayland with XWayland

[-] richardisaguy@lemmy.world 7 points 2 weeks ago* (last edited 2 weeks ago)

i use a x11 desktop under wayland using xwayland

[-] kittenzrulz123@lemmy.world 4 points 2 weeks ago

Noob, I teared a hole in the fabric of reality and plugged it into my head. I interface with my thoughts and the results are read to me by voices in my head.

For those who don't understand: cage is a kiosk wayland window manager, which means it only runs one program in the foreground and in fullscreen.

foot is a graphical terminal emulator.

So the joke here is to run a terminal emulator in fullscreen and kiosk mode on a wayland wm from tty, which, at first sight, looks exactly the same as just tty. So you use wayland for a lookalike tty session, which is a nod at OP's image which states you wouldn't run a tty on x or wayland.

(But cage+foot has mouse support, nice fonts, can launch graphical programs, etc., and has itself established as a kind of rescue shell for tty-less kernel distributions)

[-] mlg@lemmy.world 1 points 2 weeks ago

watches wayland have a stroke on a kiosk

[-] neonred@lemmy.world 2 points 2 weeks ago* (last edited 2 weeks ago)

I am not sure I understand. Are you having problems running cage?

[-] PsychedSy@sh.itjust.works 3 points 2 weeks ago

I use wsl just to log in and run update/upgrade whenever I get the itch.

Anyone remember the rackspace raids in mid-00s? I called and explained to them our ircd operator was in iraq and got services set back up.

You don't have to decide between riding a car or riding a bicycle to work

The best way to interact with a Linux machine is ssh through powershell. Hate me all you want, but it's kinda a self-own to imply that savvy Linux users don't bother with the desktop.

[-] lightnegative@lemmy.world 14 points 2 weeks ago

PowerShell isn't the best way to anything except a migraine

[-] fl42v@lemmy.ml 4 points 2 weeks ago


As the joke goes
