The universe is a crule place :-( Why can't I wear good head phones and a nice hat at the same time?!
cynical, not 100% serious
#Windows 10: random blue screens, invades my privacy, trouble with updates all the time, resource hungry, needs to be babysat all the time, throws adds at you, loads of bloatware.
#Linux: runs rock solid for years, smooth updates even between releases, resource efficient, preserves my privacy, generally takes care of itself on its own.
One makes a shit tone of money, the other leaves devs struggling for funding ... something is seriously fucked up here.
I started out being one of those purists who hated on #lombok because it hides #code from the reader. After my co-worker convinced by boss that we should use it in our project, I had to start using it. I now love it and clould not work without it. Helps me use patterns like builders and helps me wirte overall better code by taking the pain out of alot of healthy programming techniques.
Pro-tip of the day: Have a real good look at the look at their !bang shortcuts! My favorite ones are:
!w : Wikipedia
!mvn: maven repository
!gm: Google Maps
!osm: open street maps
There are over 30k of them and if you use #DDG is your browsers default search engine you can use these in the search box. I simply love it!
Dorky person interested in everything sciency and techy. Talk nerdy to me!
