Before you downvote me into the dirt hear me out: I've just recently opened my eyes to the Linux community and i've been trying damn near every single distro I've been able to get my hands on, Ubuntu, Knoppix, Linux Mint, Slax, deepin, and literally every. single. fucking. time. at least 3 things don't work right out of the gate. If I'm using virtualbox my screen will be too small and the whole thing runs like shit (not to mention you have to use 32 bit versions just to use virtualbox). If it's a live USB version some driver bullshit absolutely HAS to happen with every single distro I've used, OR it recognizes my drivers and then something else goes wrong. And christ almighty don't get me started on the 3 separate occasions where I've attempted to dual boot and it just doesn't give a single fuck about my partitions and overwrites my entire goddamn hard drive for the lulz. So honestly...Has this ever happened ever? has anyone ever just booted up a linux distro and everything just fucking worked? Because I'm starting to think that me troubleshooting every single issue I've run into would've been better spent working for those 6+ hours and then I could've afforded a copy of windows 7 and skipped this whole shit.submitted by cenariusofficial

OpenBSD a free, multi-platform BSD-based UNIX-like operating system that aims to have a few important features such as portability, standardization, correctness, proactive security, and integrated cryptograph has been upgraded to version 5.7 and is now available for download.
i want to buy a new laptop and after three hours of searching and not finding a single recommendation of a recent laptop model (why is it so hard? buying a car is far easier!) i want to ask you:
- new - recent model
- no gaming
- 100% (x)ubuntu compatible
- available in germany
thank you very much!submitted by F3nsterplatz

Seems like no matter what when I view bin with thunar it completely breaks the system. Sometimes my input stops working at all, although the clock keeps updating. Other times I'll get a random black screen. And other times it'll just flat out freeze
Nothing can save it, Ctrl alt f1,ctrl at etc etc nothing helps
Doesn't matter if I sudo thunar or not either.
Why does this happen? Can't find anything about it on google
Edit: update, seems to happen to the entire /usr/ directory, not just binsubmitted by eyewant2believe
