What is your opinion on Comic Sans?
  • True it was overused at one point. I guess a lot of the hate is just exaggerated from people getting annoyed how much it showed up in resumes and official documents as well as being used by amateur graphics designers . Which is fair. The font itself I think still serves a purpose when used correctly.

  • What is your opinion on Comic Sans?

    I was going to make a post on unpopular opinions saying comic sans is not as bad as people make it out to be and can be useful in some cases since it is easier to read. But decided not to because I wasnt sure kbin/lemmy felt about it.

    1 month of Linux Mint and some thoughts.

    About a month ago I switched to Linux mint from windows 11.

    The first thing I noticed was mint being faster and less bloated than windows 11.

    I also liked having actual control over my settings without a corporation being able to undo them at will.

    Another thing I noticed was not having to add extensions to text files to run as a program instead having the option in properties.

    For certain windows programs and games I was able to use wine which was great because I like to use gamemaker 8.1 which was made before they added linux support.

    I tried different wine environments starting with bottles then trying Steam proton and Lutris. With Lutris being the one I ended up using due to it being the only one that I could get to run every program I needed.

    The ms paint alternative called drawing took some use to due to it automatically cropping out parts of the image outside of the line when pasting in a screenshot from the clipboard.

    Although I do still miss ms paint but that is mostly nostalgia.

    Fortunately there is an option to save the screenshot after taking it.

    Migrating from windows I appreciate the SUPER key bringing up a menu on the bottom left which brings up some apps and the search bar. Which always searches on the OS unlike windows 11 which sometimes searches the internet instead.

    Another detail I noticed is if you type paint or notepad in the search it brings up drawing and the text editor which is nice for people transitioning to Linux.

    Being able to move the panel or add new ones was also a breath of fresh air from windows 11 making the task bar more restrictive.

    Having the option of deb packages and flatpacks is really useful as well.

    I also no longer have to worry about telemetry or microsoft trying to show me ads or pop ups.

    TL:DR Mint is a way better experience than windows 11.

    Anyone use a linux distro?

    I was looking into linux distros for blind users and was curious what distros the blind linux community prefers.

    I found one called Accessible-Coconut which seemed promising though you still have to click on the installer without a prompt from the screen reader.

    It also has a desktop background which might be considered bloatware for the fully blind.

    With the recent helldivers 2 fiasco do you think Sony will still be able to fix destiny 2?

    I think a lot of us were hoping Sony would replace leadership in bungie and reverse all the terrible decisions Bungie has made.

    First day using Linux Mint instead of Windows 11

    It feels faster and it seems to use up less storage.

    It feels like I no longer have to play tug of war with microsoft with owning my own device.
