PlayStation's CEO drastically underestimates the Steam crowd's patience, thinks PC gamers will buy a PS5 for exclusive sequels
  • Same. I grab every free game they have (I even have alerts set up), but will never spend a cent on their trash storefront. I do occasionally play something from my library if my friends want to play it, but otherwise my library just sits there gathering dust.

  • Instagram thinks I should reduce my privacy protections
  • That is what the Ad Nauseum extension does: "AdNauseam works to complete the cycle by automating ad clicks universally and blindly on behalf of its users. Built atop uBlock Origin, AdNauseam quietly clicks on every blocked ad, registering a visit on ad networks' databases. As the collected data gathered shows an omnivorous click-stream, user tracking, targeting and surveillance become futile."

  • acceptable screws
  • I don't think I've ever heard that fastener called an Allen bolt, just the tool (Allen key). I've generally heard them called hex sockets heads. Maybe it's a regional thing?

  • Reddit: 'We Are in the Early Stages of Monetizing Our User Base'
  • Ditto. I left during the api stuff, but left my account in case they calmed down and realized it was stupid. The whole 'selling data for ai training' and actually filing for an ipo is what actually drove me to delete my 15 year old account today

  • Google gets its way, bakes a user-tracking ad platform directly into Chrome
  • Some websites intentionally change behavior based on your user agent. There are plenty of extensions for Firefox that let you change it so sites think you're using chrome instead. It's wild to me that's even a thing, but ¯⁠\⁠_⁠(⁠ツ⁠)⁠_⁠/⁠¯

  • What are some things you can/should cheap out on?
  • Generally agree on tools except for stuff that needs to work in an emergency even if you don't use it frequently, or stuff that can pose serious safety hazards if it fails.

    My understanding is that most cheap tool brands save costs in QA and material choices (e.g. lower quality steel), which is what leads to things like the harbor freight jack stand recall.

  • What is the Windows Support Like?
  • It's solid. I use my framework with windows 11 every day, haven't had any problems in terms of what you're asking.

    Windows is plug and play with most general devices these days, as long as you've got an internet connection. The modules are just usb c devices, so they actually don't need anything special afaik. They even work with other computers- the look on my friend's face when i pulled out a usb a module for her to use on her macbook was priceless! The only difference from an external usb dongle is that these ones are designed to integrate nicely with the framework laptop body.

    As far as stuff like BIOS and basic hardware drivers go, they provide win 10/11 driver bundles for each Intel gen. I'm not seeing the Ryzen stuff there, but they may not have updated the page recently.
