pedjalike what?00:00
joacimtext editing, chatting, browsing00:01
joacimofc cpus are more powerful so you can watch 4k content00:01
pedjawell, you can :)00:02
joacimbut thats a hardware development. software just got worse for most things, i think00:02
pedjahw tries to keep up with sw demands00:03
pedjait's a feedback loop. hw gets faster/powerful, sw evolves to use that, then hw has to evolve to keep up with that. rinse, repeat00:04
joacimfirefox can choke just displaying a very basic html page. like a very long text file or file listing00:04
joacimventrilo can run on a pentium, irc clients can run on an apple II00:05
joacimbut discord might be a bit slow to react on an i5 laptop00:05
joacimworks fine on my newer systems ofc, but i see no reason for a chat client to be that slow on anything made after 199900:06
pedjadiscord is electron-based?00:07
joacimyeah, or something like that00:07
pedjawell, that's a whole fscking browser engine, iirc :)00:07
jaegerwelcome to the future (tm)00:07
pedjathere was a somewhat heated discussion on HN recently about how software engineering is still in its infancy00:10
pedjaas in methodology used in it would never fly in other engineering disciplines00:11
pedjaweb devs building a bridge. that would be fun00:12
pedjagranted, sw development is a lot younger then others00:13
pedjawelcome back, jaeger, btw :)00:13

joacimpedja: sometimes i want to get violent with virtual machine manager. to add a card for passthrough, one should remove the virtual ones first15:05
