absolutely mind boggling how much stockholm syndrome people have over proprietary garbage

windows in particular but also like, everything

like at some point you gotta stop and maybe try to imagine what it would be like if yr computer didn't give you literally 24/7 bullshit
because we have things that are better

windows user: haha lol linux nerds gotta use the command line for everything

also windows user, on new control panel > network settings > old control panel > adapter settings > right click on interface > properties > drivers > ipv4 > properties to set a static IP address: this is okay, actually


@haskal GUI has its merits, in case you're exploring something for the first time, or you are doing a one-off task. It's a tool for the novice and for non-repeated actions. Keeping using it for repeated (reproducible!) tasks is madness. Pushing even the power user to do so (for lack of decent CLI culture and tools) is mind-numbing crime. The solution: *every GUI* should be just a wrapper to CLI commands, that should be revealed (as part of the GUI itself), jupyter-notebook-style.
