Honestly I don't like how google's reCaptcha v2 makes you check "I'm not a robot". It doesn't matter if it's true, I just don't like being reminded :robot_3:

Ok so I'm now a fan of KDE and no longer miss GNOME3's nice things that I put up with its annoyances for.

Crazy how I was biased against KDE for over a decade and didn't even go near it just because it was ugly and power hungry in 2007.

I can't tell if I like functional programming or if it's just that writing object-oriented code in PHP frameworks makes me want to burn down every building in a 20-mile radius.

@schlink I've got a pair of these

I've only once played with the silly EXTRA BASS stuff built in.

Sound quality is decent for the $; the main reason I like them is: they feel sturdy and the cushion doesn't smush my ears and glasses into the side of my head (which is my chief problem with most other headphones in this $-range).

Unfortunately, not much in that range has similar cushioning and also decent audio quality. (I don't use them wirelessly, so no idea there)

idk about GNOME on Ubuntu 18.04, but KDE Plasma on Kubuntu 18.04 is the most stable I've ever used it.

I have an MSI Laptop that I really like and I got it for a good price, but it is very frustrating to get some of the hardware to work as intended. 17.10 left me with a lot of issues to manually fix but most things seem addressed in 18.04.

If you're a *buntu user with some touchy hardware on linux I recommend one of the 18.04s, YMMV for anything not KDE though since I haven't tested them.

Pshhh! No I'm not switching to KDE because I randomly remembered their mascot is hecking cute! Why would you say that? Psssh! No! haha.....
