Fwiw for people saying it’s just gnome with a few extensions, the same could have been said for elementaryOS and pantheon DE when it came out, and look where they are now. They also might be doing it so that they have more control over what they’re offering with their products instead of being expected to follow gnome.
nah its okay, the fact that you learned is good. Plus you’re one of the lucky 10,000
I don’t understand what you mean saying cisgender men is the correct for but cis men doesn’t exist. cis men is just less cumbersome than saying cisgender men, and it works as an adjective about as well as saying trans man. The reason the author made the distinction is that trans men aren’t really a concern.
Using terms like “Cis” or whatever these twitter dumbasses say
Cis isn’t some twitter thing, its an actual scientific term that’s been used for a long time.
Cisgender has its origin in the Latin-derived prefix cis-, meaning “on this side of”, which is the opposite of trans-, meaning “across from” or “on the other side of”. This usage can be seen in the cis–trans distinction in chemistry, the cis and trans sides of the Golgi apparatus in cellular biology, the cis–trans or complementation test in genetics, in Ciscaucasia (from the Russian perspective), in the ancient Roman term Cisalpine Gaul (i.e., “Gaul on this side of the Alps”), Ciskei and Transkei (separated by the Kei River), and more recently, Cisjordan, as distinguished from Transjordan. In the case of gender, cis- describes the alignment of gender identity with assigned sex.
Your whole rant is based off of misinformation.
I personally expect to go to the github for the project but maybe have a second button for lemmy.ml.
A lot of people here are recommending linux first laptops like tuxedo and system76 but if they are too expensive there’s also dell and lenovo which are linux-second vendors. Every dell laptop I’ve used has worked great with linux and are reasonably repairable. The only things to watch out for are gimicky features like fingerprint readers or anything that would need custom firmware, and super slim laptops (for repairability and the potential for weirder parts on the inside) but even for weird hardware like fingerprint sensors, both dell and lenovo have been working towards supporting them on linux as well.
