Duh. Photoshop is an Adobe joint.

/Adobe! Just vaguely similar enough to a product you already use!
//for twice the price and a non-intuitive interface!
///slow AF too!

Puts me in mind of a fictional AI known as The Oracle who infects every microprocessor system with a snippet just to add to its pervasive knowledge.

So another thing using ssh keys to bounce between systems.  Ssh is happy using both keys and a password which currently stops all the key stealing malware.

I thought this was another announcement of Windows embracing systemd.

I just found out that the easiest solution to this malware is simply to delete the folder from your PC and do a manual reboot. The folder "System32" is the only folder affected, so a quick and easy way to rid your computer from potentially being used by the hackers is to simply delete the folder, empty your trashcan, and hold the power button in till your system powers down!!

A reminder to small office router owners everywhere: Most router malware can't survive a reboot

This is a thing I did not know.  Never realized scheduled reboots could actually be a security feature.

And why would any sane dev waste a second of time on linux support subby? There are like 50 widely used versions because you stupid monkeys cant keep throwing crap at eachother about yours being the best

Maybe if you had all pulled your heads out of your asses in the last 25 years and agreed on ONE distro you wouldnt have these problems

Good thinking, but if you've got anything infected on the local net it'll get pwned again as soon as it comes up.

Yeah, before you all whip them out and start a cybernetic dick-measuring contest.  I am not a computer person I have windows because I hate Apple for being so cheap with their cooling fans and components and I don't run a server so Linix is kinda out of my reach.

I think even among the most diehard of Linux users/advocates, many can find agreement that GIMP's GUI is an abomination kept around through sheer stubbornness. Steer that one element closer to nearly any other image editor and it becomes pretty great.
