I like the triangle because (a) it looks cool and (b) because we all have some /deviant/ political beliefs and it's important to appreciate them - though there's a more descriptive verb for that besides "appreciate". I'm not so sure, however, of tolerating intolerance, for those that are prejudiced tend to bite the hand that feeds them. But also there isn't too much to read into. It's essentially a reclaimed punk symbol now, maybe not too common but I'd like it to be.
^ the inverted red triangle was used to indicate political prisoners in the nazi death camps. "First they came for the Communists." The original author of the poem said this of the beginnings of the concentration camps: "Those weren't my Christian brothers, who were burned there, those were Communists, Jehovah's Witnesses, etc. [ernste Bibe(forscher usw.}. That's why I didn't care [mich nicht gekiimmert}." Just some food for thought really.
Anyone here play Nintendo Switch? Here's my friend code: SW-6179-6750-6992

Typed "konnichiwa! watashi wa debin desu." in Japanese and it romanized as "honnichiha!Si hadebindesu." Not terrible.
Subreply really is neat. It doesn't limit you to witty one-liners when debating and it doesn't have the formality something like Hacker News carried, yet it also doesn't harbor the toxicity of other "alternate" SNSes.
btw i'm not actually 50 like in my bio i just set it to 1970-01-01
found an old article about subreply (originally sublevel apparently): web.archive.org/we...
- today's site looks far better than the archived sublevel.net
alright fellas, the big debate: windows, linux, macOS, haiku, reactOS (lul), bsd, unix, beos, amigaos, etc... what operating system do you use? what operating system do you like the best? and why?
I use iOS the most ;) I like their take on privacy and encryption.
Wish I could turn back time to the good old days of Mac OS X Snow Leopard. Currently on macOS Catalina and not very happy with how buggy it was for the first few months (MONTHS!) after its official release. I played with Ubuntu LTS in a VM for a while and that was an even bigger bugfest so I went crawling back. I'd honestly dump my Mac for an iPad Pro if it ever got clang + Docker but that will never happen :(
I use macOS and iOS on a regular basis. Partly habit--I've been an Apple person for thirty years--and partly because I think they're easier to use and they just look better.
Elementary OS, beautifully designed, freedom, and privacy friendly.
Always have liked Ubuntu: Linux for lazy people.
Win 10 is a very good OS. My only complaints are the hard to uninstall default apps that no one wants, and the bugs of the Settings UI, in some cases.
I use ubuntu for my desktop, where I do recreational programming and web browsing. OSX on my personal MacBook where I do recreational programming and web browsing in bed, and on my work laptop. Android on my Pixel 2 XL where I text and tweet. Thinking about buying a Surface Studio to work on drawing.
macOS here, on an aging macbook pro
1. Linux. 2. Linux, obviously. 3. Because it's Linux, duh.
former windows dude here, migrated to OSX when I refused to go to Vista. So now OSX, Android (I refuse to pay the iPhone stupidity tax), and I do some linux on Pi.
I use linux and it is the least bad, because I can fix just about anything that breaks, but the downside is I have to frequently fix things that are broken. Also, printers don't work.
