        yes, yes, 1000 years ago there was a fashion industry geared towards women. totally not a cultural thing at all

        (+proprietary nvidia drivers so the dual-gpu in my laptop acts right, sorry, but not really)

        i'll check out floorp, maybe it will magically work better.

          There is no reason for floorp to magically work better, you need to report the bug at mozilla bug tracker if it's their fault.
          >dual gpu
          How is closed source driver related to that? I thought laptopgays could just use a switch.

            https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/PRIME supposedly it should work fine with the open source drivers, but I spent way too much time chasing red herrings with bumblebee and some other alternatives. Finally got hybrid gpu working perfectly with the closed-source drivers, and I am done wasting my time fricking around with it now that my laptop is behaving as expected. It's just nice having more than 5 minutes of battery life and not needing to manually turn the primary gpu on and off like a mouth breather.

            Jensen will die in his sleep if you succeed in not having to do any config and having an OOTB open-source experience.

            we're way past that point by now. How important is it really that your GPU drivers are open sores? All the microcode and hardware is still proprietary at the end of the day, right?

            well, it's not exactly crysis. generally, if you can run it on a console, you can run it on a mid-range laptop, ime. i don't do much gayming on my personal laptop anyways, it's mostly for productivity and masochistically troubleshooting stupid linux problems. i use an m2 macbook pro for work and i can confidently say, arm laptops are the best thing since sliced bread. the difference in battery life and heat output alongside better performance vs whatever i7 69nm meme-pu i have at home is a night and day difference.

            I'd replace my personal laptop with a macbook pro tomorrow if they were at all user-serviceable, but I'll be first in line for snapdragon x, i can tell you that much.
