How can anyone possibly justify the existence of mouse acceleration?

How does something like this even come into existence?
>you know, aiden, i really like that when i move my mouse X distance with my hand it then moves Y distance on the screen but sometimes i wish it just wasn't so
>no problem tyler i will write a program that moves the mouse pointer a random extra distance based on various configurable factors that when configured change exactly nothing at best but are more likely to make things worse

I got my first mouse before most of you were probably even a tingle in your daddy's boxers. Ever since I installed Linux, I find myself missing on clicks. Actually missing. Accidentally minimizing windows that I mean to close. Clicking the wrong box on a form. Having to intently focus on which menu item I'm actually trying to select. I couldn't figure it out.
Buy a new mouse. Nope. Well, that was a cheap piece of shit, I guess, I'll get a better one. Nope. I never had this problem on any other computer I've ever had in my whole entire life. (My first was a C64 in 1985.) Start looking around. Turns out, Linux has this wonderful 'feature' called mouse acceleration. If you move your mouse, great, the pointer moves with it. But if you move it the same distance a little faster, it moves the pointer a whole lot farther. Or, if you move the mouse a shorter distance, it registers as having moved faster for some reason, and moves the pointer 5x the distance instead of just 2x.
There's shitloads of theories on what the perfect settings are, and someone, somewhere, expects people to sit and burn their life away trying to figure out how a fucking mouse moves. Or, it turns out, you can just disable it entirely.

What even the fuck? Who the fuck thinks this shit up? How does something like this even come into existence?

What a god damned joke.

>Troubleshooting
If there seems to be a bug (or complicated issue), anons may ask you to compose an MWE (minimum working example).
To create an MWE, try the following:
1) start emacs with "emacs -q". This disables your init.
2) try to reproduce your issue with as few settings changed and packages (manually) loaded as possible.
These steps ensure that other anons can replicate your problem if it's something more involved. Sometimes you even find the cause yourself this way, too!

ISP HATE THREAD

No.81553350 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
Portuguese faggot here.
Just got done bullying my local isp to give me 500/100 internet or else i would not re-sign my contract with them. Not only did they cave in, but i also made them give me more mobile data (10gb a month now) and also lower my monthly bill to 59€ per month. It feels good bullying the wagies working at my ISP bros.

Also post your internet speeds i guess

FAANG vs Gaming studios

No.81554555 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
Hello,

I have received offers from a FAGMAN company and a gaming studio as well, working on a pretty famous title.

I am not asking which offer I should take, but rather I have one question--

Which company has the "smartest" engineers-- Fagman, or game studio?

The reason I ask is solely because I want to learn the cutting edge of technology. The money and working culture are probably much better at FAGMAN, but I'm curious which company g thinks has actually smarter people.
