Microsoft “updates” Skype! Mozilla strikes a deal, Linux turns 25, and Motherboard thinks PC gaming is way to hard.
Colour key – Venn Pedro Mathieu
- Bisquick has a point.
- Dude blew $100 because lazy.
- Then again he managed to spend $2,000.
- If you were building PCs in the 80s, heck, the 90s.. You’re probably having a good laugh at this whiny millennial failure of a human being.
- I noped when he started talking about reading “manuals”
- You don’t need to read manuals nowadays. Everything on a motherboard is labeled!
- This is why the “PC Gaming Master Race” moniker is never going to go away.
- There’s always going to be a scrub with a media platform who can’t help but make himself a martyr and fuel the PCGMR elitists.
- Also, this entire “article” has an overt tone of whining to it.
- I was almost willing to excuse it when I read the last paragraph, but then I read the very last line…
- What happens in reality is that you have to spend one day and $1000 every 5 years
- It’s not hard picking parts, just choose what’s has the best power / money ratio and in your price range.
- Or just buy a pre-build gaming PC, there are plenty of those now.
- 22yr master race!
- Pick from one of three amazing anniversary dates!
- Too bad it never became big and professional like GNU
- I started dabbling 11 years ago, but didn’t commit until 5 years ago.
- I was wondering why Firefox switched the default search engine from Google to one no one in their right mind would use.
- “Mayer made the deal with Mozilla in a desperate attempt to keep Yahoo relevant”
- Didn’t work.
- The Moz foundation is set to get $375(M) per year until 2019 or the new owners tell them to sod off.
- Almost $400M a year for shipping a default setting which everyone will change sounds like a pretty good plan to me.
- I mean, most people already know how to change the default search engine.
- That’s how I learned that Yahoo was getting bought
- It was bound to happen, their only relevant products today are the non-yahoo ones: Tumblr and Flickr
- If I understand correctly, they could receive money from yahoo, change their default search engine to something people want and cash in from both.
- I they decided to go back with Google, that would add up to $675million/year until 2019.
- If the Googs will have them back.
- Remember, they went to yahoo when they were moving away from the browser business.
- It’s either adds or they made the web version functional on Linux.
- Or both, I’m calling this @ 7:49 A.M.
- It’s a WebRTC desktop client.
- It’s missing little things LIKE VIDEO.
- It’s ghetto skype with the video bit enabled.
- Nope, no video “Video calling is definitely one of the key features we plan to add to Skype for Linux”
- However the main binary is an actual 64-bit ELF executable.
- Nothing to see, here.
- Electron app of the week!
That’s it, I’m moving to Windows 10
- Still very experimental but Unity and XFCE were able to run on Bash for Windows
- Don’t forget KDE, Brad.
- KDE didn’t need the bash implementation in W10 for it to work.
- The fact that Compiz runs shows that some kind of 3D support is in there
- The Gallium GDI driver from Mesa does work on Windows.
- Everything else is probably software accelerated.
- Nothing a good coat for fire wouldn’t fix.
- At least little Timmy can now feel like a L33T Linux HaX0R.
- TIL ONLYOFFICE exists.
- Commenting and integrated chat along with version history seem nice.
- This comment brought to you by Google Docs.
- That seems to be the only solid alternative to Google Docs in the open source world
- They also sell the desktop version, but why would anyone want to buy that?
- But what do I know? I hate office suites and I’ll use them as a last resort
- It seems that Intel is too blame for that, they released a faulty microcode update
- So remember, Intel, Fedora users are not your personal QA team
- Roll back kernel until sorted.
- You can also disable the faulty DLR microcode in the new kernel with a simple grub flag on the kernel line.
- Or downgrade the microcode package.
- I remember when Fedora shipped cutting edge software instead of broken software.
Rolling Rolling Rolling
- Looking for adventure, headaches, and borked systems?
- They don’t necessarily need to keep to bleeding edge software in order to be rolling.
- But what do I know, Fuduntu only died because we were pushing 12TB from the repos in a slow month.
- We pushed 8+ last month.
- Trying this distro is still on my todo list, for some reason it looks really neat
- Oh, and what do I see in the new packages? Lutris!
- I’ve always wanted to see the fallout from a distro going from LTS to rolling.
- That’s a huge improvement for all GPUs running open source drivers
- Turns out that my Broadwell GPU should get OpenGL 4.3 support
- Vulkan driver for Intel Ivy Bridge \m/
- Gen8+ (broadwell and up) now have OpenGL 4.3.
- Which means, unless you care about performance, you can probably play all games on Steam for Linux.
- Not a SteamOS feature (yet) but a neat script done by ProfessorKaos64
- I wish distros implemented similar features
- If Linux wants to gain traction in the desktop market share it needs to be able to repair itself.
- Let’s be clear here, SteamOS rarely if ever borks itself.
It’s raining Pi
- It sure is overkill to use a RaspberryPi for such a project but it’s cute
- Well it was made for the A.
- You can always use the remaining 99% of your available hardware resources by running a bunch of servers on it.
- WHAR graphical representation for meatballs?
- Uses the NOAA REST web service for the forecast via zip.
- I think this project is hella neat but, Okay Google.. What is the forecast.
- I don’t know anyone who spoofs their UA in 2016.
