Because, it's always an estimation based on something superficial and easy to track.

For example you can have 3 updates, where the last one is 1000x times the size of the other two. This will result in the last 33'%' taking much longer.

Why is this, done? Because it works most of the time and nobody gives a shit.

It has the adaptative brightness problem, unsolvable in the FHD version, and the QHD version costs more and has around 4 hours less of battery.

Costs as much used as a new XPS 13. 16:10 though.

I have an XPS 13 and don't have the adaptive brightness issues.

The only problem I've had with it was with the trackpad, but installing synaptic drivers and the recent bios update, seems to resolved the issue somehow.

>> No.54718996

>This is untrue.
No it isn't. I know because I was almost going to buy one until I realized things like the webcam needed kernel patching and extracting the driver directly from OS X.

The QHD versions don't, but those cost more and have less battery life.

>Literally memes
No it isn't, it has been tested by several people. Dell themselves admited the problem and put out a solution (that only works on an installation of Windows) for the QHD version. The FHD version is unpatchable.
Out of curiosity, 8 hours on Windows?

Look ALL XPS 13's since Broadwell have this issue, it's not a silicon lottery. You might just not notice it, or if you have the QHD version they may have reflashed the screen for you.

Trust me, I take no pleasure in knowing this shit happens because it means I have to pay around 150$ more for the QHD version.

There are much more fun projects than gaming.

Make a file server and implement you personal cloud storage.

Study GPU passthrough, what hardware you may need and set it up.

Hard mode: Make a mail and CUPS printer server.

Create you own terminal based text editor that is compatible with vim addons.

Implement your own database, with all your login details stored in a single encrypted spreadsheet. Link them properly and see your own relational diagram.

Make your own VPS.

Learn python and automate things on your house. Like sync your home sound-system with the song you've been playing in your mobile phone or car outside. Wake up your PC with when your phone connects the the home WiFi

If you were a multibillion company and could buy positive reviews $0.13 each, why wouldn't you? Normal ads are expensive as fuck. Hiring Pajeet costs almosts nothing and is probably more effective. Most people don't realize when they are being mislead. Normies aren't called sheep for nothing. It takes a /g/entooman who's familiar with the subject and a bit of tinfoil to spot a shill.

If you think that those AMD/Nvidia fanboys are really just fanboys, you are naive. Some of there are just memeing, but I can clearly tell which ones are not.

Galaxy S7. Everything the iPhone does, the S7 does better. And what the iPhone doesn't do, the S7 does.

Lots of bloatware though, knowing Samsung. Also touchjizz, so your first priority would be rooting if possible, and getting Nova Launcher or similar. I used another app, forgot the name though.

The only thing that makes me enjoy iPhone is how seamless it is. It feels like it operates well with all apps that are available and the system is relatively simple. Although, the ability to download whatever I was online on the android does peak my interest.

Do you have difficualties holding attention span for that long? There is literraly nothing wrong ~1h. It becomes more diffult to listen to them as they approach 2h mark simply because you need to be able to allocate this much time unless you like taking breaks.

OP, it seems to me like you could use better mics or a compressor because you and your buddy peak quite often when you get more excited and it makes it beyond painful to listen. Audio quality is acceptable if you're just giving it a go and don't feel like investing anything in it otherwise upgrade asap.

Face it. He's a try-hard. He calls himself Dr. Stallman despite only having honorary degrees. That would be like Kanye West calling himself Dr Kanye West. But he doesn't because even he knows that's pretentious.

If Kanye West is less pretentious than you, you're doing something wrong.

Stallman is a gargantuan faggot who calls himself a 'doctor' without having gained a PhD, destroys any credibility he has by acting like an ass "I'm not glad he's dead but I'm glad he's gone" and his only real claim to fame is contributing to the creation of Linux.

Without Linus and Linux the GPL and FSF would have faded into obscurity. They only reason anyone pays them any heed now is because of the (negligible) help it gave Linus back in the early days of Linux.

If anything the FSF should rename itself Linux/FSF, simply because the Linux project and Linus are the only reason anyone would pay them any attention now.

Stallman's work is just a footnote in the history of Linus's achievements. He should be grateful for that, otherwise he would be nothing.

Demanding people call Linux GNU/Linux is audacious.

>wrote emacs
Contributed to guy steele's TECO macros, later cloned gosmacs, the actual first emacs for UNIX. If stallman wrote emacs, apple is the sole creator of webkit.
>wrote gcc and gdb
He wrote the C compiler initially, but the vast majority of development for other compilers and the C compiler has came from non-stallman sources.

And he hasn't programmed in years. Stallman is washed up, and his justifications for copyleft are horribly invalid nonsense that would make more sense if they were actual thinly veiled communism instead of selfish ramblings and a desire for a world that catered to his specific social class.
