Snap: A packaging system for programs which don't work on files outside user's home directory

Is there some file manager for linux that doesn't utterly suck? Nautilus has horrible UI, nemo straight out freezes for minutes on sight of too many images, thunar is awfully featureless, Dolphin only ever works right on KDE (maybe it's time to finally ditch xfce?).

Not that I am sure by anything of this, but didn't they promise to get rid of them in exchange for a promise from the US to protect them from the Russians if they come blasting? And then the US, like, didn't?

Me on Thursday night: *having learned about openwrt kernel device tree and currently compiling my own build with USB support hopefully enabled*

I think all browsers do it in windows. In Firefox in Linux you have to enable it in settings (it's called autoscrolling). Same situation in Libreoffice IMO. In gimp, xournal, inkscape it's for dragging view

Lead developer is a developer that writes code so heavy-weighted and slow that it feels like it's made out of lead

Fuck proctored exams, where tf am I supposed to get a native Windows box??

Okay why did no one told me that I could have registered for the vaccine for 3 days now?
