I Get Paid To Chat On Reddit. "I just thought people should know not to take....to seriously.""...you're probably being marketed to" submitted by TerriChris to MeanwhileOnReddit

Reddit is very authentic. You ought to look at its record. I'm pretty sure you're just one of those conspiracy theorists.

After Adblock Plus sold out to so-called safe advertisers, uBlock Origin proves formidable competitor with Mozilla pick as Add-On of the Month submitted by 0x4F to technology

uBlock Origin is a result of a spat between the original dev & a co-dev. The original guy wanted to leave the project so he handed everything over to 2nd guy. 2nd guy did stuff that 1st guy didn't like (I don't recall what) so 1st guy forked & made uBlock Origin. Since then, uBlock Origin is the only one to actually make significant improvements to the addon.

In short, use uBlock Origin. uBlock is not trustworthy.

Not only is it a better adblocker (blocks more ads), it is also much leaner on resources. I don't have the link anymore, but out of ~8 adblockers, Ublock Origin led to faster load times & lower resource usage in all but (I think) one metric. Anyone have that link?

The article treats it as a surprise or at least as not expected. Why do you find it surprising that someone would comment on the linked article's content?

Microsoft angers system administrators with new Windows 10 upgrade push submitted by Mixplate to technology

I 100% discount any of the entries on the list which forcefully deployed linux to get away from MS's spying, that was done out of necessity, not want.

Ok, so which ones are those?

The rest of your list looks like server based, not desktop.

As I stated (and as my sources show), every entity on that list is using Linux desktop.

I stick to my assertions I stated, as the ones that did switch had MASSIVE training that went on and it cost them millions to switch, I remember hearing about it all.

So let's see the source(s) for that. Also, just because migrating systems costs money does not mean that one system is better or worse than the other; it just means that different systems are different and people require training to use something different.

At the time linux users touted it as the day Linux was taking over... and it never did, as usual.

Well, yes. Over-reaction to good news is a rather common trait in the Linux community...

The companies that have gone full linux did so to get away from proprietary software with possible backdoors in it for security reasons.

I don't know of a single company that claims backdoors are a reason they are migrating. Plenty of them cite improved security but they are usually referring to the low-risk of infection for Linux machines.

ELI5: What happened at the DNC in Nevada exactly? submitted by tragicwhale to ELI5

The GOP in Colorado had the rules set before hand. It wasn't exactly a new way to determine delegates either. States were doing it that way as far back as 2008 if my memory serves.
