    Here’s my battle station which is basically my entire apartment. I live here with my girlfriend and work from home 2/5 days a week.

    I triple boot each on a separate SSD. Ubuntu 19.04 for work, Hackintosh High Sierra for general use/side project programming and Windows 10 for games.

    My Specs: Displays: One 1440p 27” Monitor, and a 1920x1200 24” monitor I got from Value Village for $10.

    GPU: GTX 1070

    CPU: Ryzen 2600x

    RAM: 24Gb DDR4 3000Mhz

      I’m getting this as well on my 1440p 27” benq monitor

        The only thing I’m really surprised about is how blatant they are about selling your user data apparently.

        1. 2

          To be clear, are they actually selling user data to third parties, or are they just aggregating it themselves in order to power a targeted advertising platform?

          Not that I care too much - selling is only marginally worse than aggregating. But I do also want to speak accurately when I talk about how villainous Microsoft is. Over-exaggerating invites denial.

            As an advertising privacy expert: “Selling user data” is the wrong bar. You should say something more along the lines of profiting off the use of user data by themselves or others. With modern advertising systems, the owner of the data is not necessarily the same as the person benefiting from it, and it doesn’t even need to necessarily change hands. Don’t let them off on a technicality.

          Damn Clojure is an intimidating language. Are you using a library for graphics?

          1. 1

            I’m not the author, but the project uses Quil for graphics. And Clojure mostly looks intimidating because its syntax is different from mainstream languages, but once you get past that it’s a fairly small and simple language.

              As for the intimidation of Clojure, I’d say that some code looks bad, but with a focused reading the code becomes self evident.

                Ayy, I’ve been avoiding VSCode for a while simply because I try and avoid MS but this has me really interested. Thanks for the link
