what are the pros and cons of apt vs flatpak?
  • flatpaks are designed for gui apps, and due to packaging dependencies, they are extra heavy in disk space. flatpaks are also most often installed on the user, not systemwide, so no root permissions needed to install.

    apt installs systemwide exclusively, but can have a much smaller download size if the dependencies are already installed. Apps sharing dependencies means much less disk space. cli is supported.

  • Motorcycles have different licensing requirements, and come with caveat emptor that they are inherently unsafe in a motor vehicle accident.

    That's not to say bikes don't have any safety at all... there is R&D that goes into making them safe in a collision... as safe as they can be.

  • Microsoft's new Paint Cocreator requires an NPU — AI-powered feature requires 40 TOPS of performance and a Microsoft account
  • It's an accountability issue. I'm sure there's several countries that will require accountability and filtering for illegal artwork, so this is the only way to ensure it can be done.

    They could make it work entirely offline, but there would be no safeguards.

    Technically, someone could write a version of the ai gen tools that work on these new NPUs, then you can have a new machine with an NPU and still use open source / self host / local only tools (Krita's ai plugin, for example).

    45 TOPS is a little less than half what an RTX 2060 can do, which is 102 TOPS, for comparison. But the power usage on these new NPUs is way lower.

  • Reminder that due to the chicken tax, these vehicles have to be 25 years old before they can be imported.

    The big problem is, these vehicles were built to 30 year old safety standards - no vehicle from the 1990's (except maybe a SAAB, and even then they're not strong enough anymore and will fail a small offset frontal) can compete with a modern car in safety requirements.

    There is also the fact that these vehicles have been around for 25 years, and have that amount of age and wear on their platform - they won't be as strong as they originally were off the production line.

  • The Borg assimilated much of the Internet when they captured other human technologies and culture.
  • I've always assumed the Borg Queen is a representation of the Borg's collective will, not the de facto leader. She does the things she does because the whole collective is agreeing to do what she does. She's just the tangible point the audience can focus on.
