It's interesting what alcohol has done to people I know since years
  • Growth at all costs is bad. Slow, steady growth is natural and encouraged. The economy grows, but so does a forest. Something as broad as "growth" should not be characterized in a singular way like you're doing, especially when you seem to consider natural growth to be "unbound" and "needless", when it is not.

    You should rest, but you should not stagnate.

    Why is Windows 11 so annoying?
  • Nah man, it opens from the start menu too. Search for a program you have installed? Nope, auto-search the web and launch Bing in Edge to show you the result.

  • I recently learned you can use modifier keys while clicking taskbar programs. Ctrl cycles between program instances without showing the preview. Shift opens a new one. Ctrl+shift opens one as admin I think?

  • I own a consumer version (home) and I’ve never once seen an ad.

    Really? I'm on Win10 and constantly get notifications in the bottom right about adobe products and stuff

  • (I tried it, there was one prominent "try the context menu" answer, and the rest were command line. Granted that answer was at the top... under Google's AI summary of several command line options)

  • The command line isn't necessary, but it is the common thing between most linux OSes, and so it still gets recommended. I bet if you look up "how to unzip zip file linux" the first answer will use the command line, and not any distro-specific right-click options, because it's more applicable.

    Oh no, Anarchists!
  • I'm sure if you take a moment to analyze your behavior in this thread with an unbiased view, you'll come to agree with me. If you cannot do that, you should learn how-- not a dig, it's unironically very useful for finding holes in your views.

    Oh no, Anarchists!
  • First paragraph: Agree, except I believe anarchism is unstable and will lead to another leader eventually anyways.

    Second paragraph: That's a false choice and you know it. There are so many possibilities for political organization-- see, for example, every country in the world. I'm not interested in arguing with someone who makes bad faith arguments like this.

    Oh no, Anarchists!
  • Right, but it's voluntarily elected by smaller groups. The fact that the representatives don't align with most voter's interests in every topic is a fundamental problem of agreement, not a problem specific to the method of organization.

    Oh no, Anarchists!
  • Who's "we"? <1% of the population? Good luck enforcing your views, we can't even enforce democracy with a majority (debatably) that believes in it.

  • Exactly. We have ~50% saying that now, whoch is why I think an anarchist society on a large scale isn't feasible to transition to anytime within the next few decades at least.
