>Can't type my password to log in
>Can't type anything properly once I'm logged in
>No differing power settings depending on if I'm plugged in or on the battery
>Can't set DPI to the proper value of 1.5x, just 1x or 2x

>Looks fucking ugly as shit, holy god damn shit
>Try the Application Dashboard widget, just looks like a shitty knockoff of Gnome's overview, but it doesn't have the nice present windows part so it's shit

>Exit from the system tray just makes it restart constantly, have to kill it from the terminal

Why the fuck is Linux such a piece of shit? I want to use it. I don't want the Illuminati fucking spying on me constantly with Windows. But Windows just works. Linux is such a fucking broken piece of shit. Or at least if you want to do anything more complicated than a basic keyboard and mouse desktop.

Non-dogshit-feeling Windows laptops

No.65172370 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
Hey guys, I've been meaning to by my mom a laptop. She dosen't game or anything but I wanted something with a premium feel. Like the new Dell XPS, or LG gram. I'm wondering if there are any "good" feeling laptops out there for under 1000 bucks with at least 8gb of ram. Surface laptop felt amazing, good touch pad and keyboard, but its pricey. Same with the XPS and Gram. I've noticed a lot of Windows laptops have horrible touch pads and keyboards (Acer...) and just feel flimsy and shitty. Anyone know of some gems out there with a premium feel? Minimum I wanted 8gb ram, IPS screen, and 8th gen intel CPU's.

Firefox Master Password System Has Been Poorly Secured for the Past 9 Years

No.65172665 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
>"I looked into the source code," Palant says, "I eventually found the sftkdb_passwordToKey() function that converts a [website] password into an encryption key by means of applying SHA-1 hashing to a string consisting of a random salt and your actual master password."

>But Palant wasn't the first to notice such weakness. A Mozilla bug tracker entry by Justin Dolske from nine years ago reported the same issue, soon after the master password feature's launch.

>Dolske also pointed to the low iteration count of 1 as the master password's main problem. But despite the report, Mozilla did not take any official action for years.

>It was only until this past week when Palant reanimated the original bug report that Mozilla finally provided an official answer, suggesting this would be fixed with the launch of Firefox's new password manager component —currently codenamed Lockbox and available as an extension.

Good job, Mozilla. You clearly care a lot about the security of your users... Not.

what's a good drone for someone with no prior experience?

i want to learn how to manoeuvre one, maybe filming with it but nothing too serious. being able to take it on trips would be an added bonus.
