@geekgonecrazy @ubuntu Personally for me good start with Linux Mint was due to Cinnamon which is continution of good old Gnome 2 traditions. Later on I find myself on Mate which became much more stable recently. Key factor choosing #linuxmint over plain @ubuntu is Kernel management app and mintupdater which makes version updates so easy 👍
@geekgonecrazy For me it's @ubuntu based for laptops and PCs (preferably Linux Mint Mate) and CentOS for servers. I find RPM distros more stable and friendlier to troubleshoot (maybe because I have more experience with them), but DEB based ones simply are easier for end users esp. when it comes to libraries, drivers, etc. I do like Fedora's approach to software licencing attitude though 👍
Looking for image resize tips for impementation in @webimg found very interesting article in #Discord #blog - folks used #golang and #cpp to make high performance media proxy: https://blog.discordapp.com/how-discord-resizes-150-million-images-every-day-with-go-and-c-c9e98731c65d #opensource #development
I was surprised that NYTimes still manages to detect Chrome Incognito mode (I thought Chrome had fixed that bug), so I dug in. How do they do it? It's actually pretty clever:
- Firefox: indexedDB throws an error in private browsing
- Safari: localStorage is disabled
- Edge/IE: indexedDB is null
- Chrome: estimate the available storage quota, if it's lower than ~125MB, then it's Incognito

@djoerd Somewhat expected 😁 Better use Chromium instead.
@gamingonlinux At the moment I download classic installer games from GOG and install them through PlayOnLinux (Wine). Would be nice if native app would be able to download and manage Windows games under Ubuntu and other flavors of Linux 🤓
