How to become a free software hipster
Don't take this too seriously, or perhaps you should?
This is how to become a free software hacker, no I'm just joking ignore that wikihow article, right so here are the steps:
1. Buy a Thinkpad
Preferably an X60 or X220 it looks pretty dope, it's pretty cheap, and you can libreboot it.
a bonus would be to own a digital watch, and a pocket knife.
2. Install a GNU/Linux distribution
Please don't call it Linux or the man with the beard will get mad at you
As for the distribution choice it's up to you, the more exotic you go the better (normies will think you are some kind of genius (you most likely are)) and forget arch it's the new ubuntu, install gentoo like real men do.
Also please don't use the contrib and non-free repos in Debian.
3. Install i3wm and "rice" your desktop (optional)
Tilling is superior right, duh ... (not really)
4. Learn to use the one true editor
Learning to use Emacs is crucial, though using the other editor Vi (or any other variant) is not a sin, but you should not do that.
You can go a bit hardcore and learn to live inside the one true editor
5. Join the church of Emacs (optional)
You have to renounce the flase gods, you also need to memorize the whole GPL license, and also memorize all of Emacs functions and symbols by alphabetical order.
6. Learn to program
Ruby, PHP (eww disgusting), Python and C are for noobs, learn a real language like x86 assembly.
Lisp is also helpful, so you have to memorize SICP by heart.
7. Use some cool wallpapers
8. Listen to some soviet communist music
Also preferably read The communist manifesto and 1984.
9. Change you internet browsing habits
Choose a non botnet browser.
Botnet browsers: Google Chrome, Chromium, Vivaldi, Opera
Non botnet browsers: Palemoon, Icecat, ungoogled-chromium
SJW browsers: Firefox
Also don't use html5 (let alone flash) to watch videos on the internet, web browsers are made for browsing web pages not for watching videos, preferably pipe to mpv or mplayer (here is a firefox extension), this causes less CPU overheat => less power consumption.
Also contribute to the network and set up a tor node in you uni or the place your work in make sure to not do it in your home dumbass!
10. Visit /g/ daily
This is the board that the hacker 4chan frequents, shitpost and make fun of normies.
