I'm curious about the furry demographic. Are there many conservative furries? Furries for Trump?

I have been asking myself: what if he had say the German chancellor killed? What are we gonna do about it? Do we invade Russia because of that? I don't think so. Alright, so what then? Send some assassins his way? Nope, not gonna happen. Probably more safety protocols for high ranking politicians and that's it.
I honestly think Putin could just get away with it.

Alexei Navalny death: Team accuses Kremlin of 'hiding' his body while more than 400 people have been arrested across Russia for following vigils and gatherings in memory of Navalny (www.bbc.com)

Alexei Navalny's mother has been unable to recover his body after his death in an Arctic jail, a close aide to the dead Russian opposition leader says. Navalny's team believes the anti-corruption campaigner was murdered on the orders of President Vladimir Putin....

I'd argue that linux is fine for every use case, BUT there are obviously some tools that do not work on Linux simply because the devs don't support it. So it's more a matter of having to learn other tools, which can be a huge undertaking I'll give you that. The biggest step you can take towards using Linux is actually using all the open source tools on windows first. If all of your software works on both windows and linux, then changing the underlying operating system isn't that big of a deal anymore. (some exceptions do apply, like some games will never work on linux because of kernel level anti cheat or the devs seem to straight up hate linux users, see Destiny 2 for instance)

Ich nutze Microsoft Authenticator, da bekomme ich Cloud Backups und ich bin noch zu faul alles zu Aegis umzuziehen. Diese Unbequemlichkeit (Handy raus, entsperren, App auf, wieder entsperren, Eintrag suchen, kurz warten, weil die Schlüssel in 3 Sek. erneuert werden) verhindert auch, dass ich das pauschal überall nutze.

Why bother trying to convince people like you who only complain about Windows, but are way too lazy to do anything about? It's just a waste of my time. I'd much rather gloat about how I don't have to deal with crap like this.

The term AI is a lot more broad than you think.

That is precisely what I dislike. It's kinda like calling those crappy scooter thingies "hoverboards". It's just a marketing term. I simply oppose the use of "AI" for the weak kinds of AI we have right now and I'd prefer "AI" to only refer to strong AI.
Though that is of course not within my power to force upon people and most people seem to not care one bit, so eh 🤷🏼‍♂️

it is already a great tool for programmers. Which means programming anything, including new AI, will only go exponentially faster.

Yes to it being a tool. But right now all it can really do is bog standard stuff. Also have you read about that the use of Github Copilot seems to reduce the quality of code? This means we cannot yet rely on this type of technology. Again, it's a limited tool and that is it. At least for now.

No. Mint is fine for my dad who uses a browser and an email program and nothing else. I'm not gonna recommend it to people who do a lot more with their machines. I can tell them I use Linux and they can ask me anything if they are ever curious about making the switch, but that is it. If they don't make the conscious decision to use Linux, then they won't stick with it anyways.

I would not want to have Nazis working for me either. I don't buy into that whole talk to them, change their mind nonsense. I say we ostracize them as much as possible, have them be pariahs. We either shame them into not being absolute garbage humans or they can fuck right off. Absolutely zero tolerance for Nazis.

AMD GPUs are cursed for me

Each time I try AMD graphics, something is fucked for me. Back with fglrx, fglrx just sucked, so I used Nvidia. Then I had an AMD right around when they finally had opensource drivers, but it was still buggy as hell. So I went with Nvidia again (first a GTX 790, then a GTX 1060). In the meantime I had a new work notebook where I...

Remember when they came up with the concept of mRNA-vaccines and they thought it would change their DNA permanently? What we actually got was the most effective vaccines ever.
Why is it that with actually good inventions like this we get skeptics, but when we get "AI" nonsense then everybody is just on board?

Eh, I bought Grounded in Early Access. Maye by Obsidian and backed by Microsoft. I think this should count as AAA.
Also I think you don't mean that "small, indie studio" cause those are few and far between. Sons of the Forest? They have a Publisher (literally the opposite of being independent). I think there are lots of games which you have put into that category that are not actually indie devs at all.
Anyway, my point is just that it's not a black and white issue.
