- My 64-core (realistic) workstation came out to a measly $7,894.
- 32-GB of RAM and a 2070.
- It would not allow me to add a 2060 Super as a second GPU, only a 2080 Super or Ti.
- Yall need to fix that.
- If I’m building an editing box for Davinci Resolve I want a low end /power card dedicated to driving the display and a big-brains chungus for rendering.
- ^ That’s literally a checkbox configuration in Resolve.
- System76 had a Thelio Major day 1 launch of the Ryzen 3990x CPU! Wonderful!
- A Radeon RX 560 4GB rather than an RX 550 2GB would be a better choice for a lower end GPU.
- I would die to have this for my Blender, Modo and Maya renders.
- And I wouldn’t go lower than 256 GB of Ram, because that is what I am using on my current render workstation.
- I’m glad they offer support, because that price is not kosher on the low end.
- I specced out my current box (but with the 9800X and 2070 Super, since there is no 3700X or 1080 options) and it came out at $2996 for just the tower and without the SATA SSD Yol0 RAID.
- That better be some awesome support.
- We’re finally getting a Linux client.
- Hope it’s not Electron.
- Of course it will be.
- It’s a web app.
- I have been using Evernote for years.
- And in the early days of smartphones, Evernote was available on almost every device and was a great way to not only share notes, but pictures and files to all your devices.
- I used it heavily on webOS, which is Linux.
- Glad it is finally going to make it as a standalone app for the Linux desktop, and I won’t have to run it in a web browser.
- Joplin, Laverna, and Simplenote are great alternatives for Linux to Evernote, but today I mostly use Google Keep.
Appcenter 2: The Appening (RTheren)
- They’re looking for some funding to bring the team together for a coding sprint.
- As someone who really isn’t terribly keen on group activities IRL, this idea seems a bit wasteful to me.
- But I realise this is bias speaking.
- That said, it’s good to see them adding flatpak support.
- Even ElementaryOS is not my jam.
- Having an AppCenter that allows you to easily donate money to open source projects is so needed.
- Yes, if you make it easy to contribute to open source projects the Linux community is more than happy to fund the apps that we so love!
- Including funding AppCenter which I donated to via GooglePay and Paypal.
- And having a secure wallet to save payment methods and enable fast, one-click purchasing is what is needed to make this work.
- PayPal would be a nice option too.
- Mycroft is taking the fight to the Patent Trolls.
- Head honcho, Joshua Montgomery is taking the legal fight back to the people using frivolous patent suits to make money.
- And he’s doing it with the goal of setting a precedent
- Hardware encoding and decoding support?
- I wanted to poke this new hotness but when I dragged one of our segments into the timeline it ate the poop.
- HEVC h.265 /w 2X 16-bit audio channels.
- I tried kids, I really really did.
- OpenShot 2.5.0 can now export and import industry standard EDL (Edit Decision List) configuration files to and from Premiere Pro or Davinci Resolve.
- This allows you to maintain your video clips placement and edits and simple effects in the timeline and bring them in to other editing or effects apps for processing.
- You can also import and export industry standard XML configuration files from and to Final Cut Pro.
- OpenShot now has Blender 2.8+ support using blend files!
- This version of OpenShot, like many other video and animation programs, has the ability to recover previous saves from a recovery folder in case of accidental deletion or crashes.
- Mate 1.24 has been released with many new features, improvements and bug fixes.
- HiDPI support for all the things!
- Windows controls-min, max, close
- Control Center icons
- network manager applet icons
- Status icons in Mate Panel
- Wanda the Fish fortune teller app
- I have been noticing quite a few HiDPI issues, and not being able to see certain icons and windows easily with Mate on my UHD monitor since I have been running Ubuntu Mate 19.10.
- I have used Magnus a few times to see them, granted I am half blind.
- One of the new features I will love, window manager Marco finally added invisible resize borders. No more struggling to find a border to grab with your mouse!
- The ability to mount ISOs without having to sudo is kinda nice!
- Kinda wants to track down a pirated copy.
- That’s how Windows users get software, right?
- Honestly, their campaign to help migrate Windows users to Linux is well done,
- Both in this article and in the previous Linux Lite article to switch from the dying Windows 7.
- Yeh, and not just covering their cost to make the DVDs, charging for them, or any software is a paradigm that Windows users are used to, brilliant!
- And there is a 32 bit version as well for older hardware, which the base Linux Lite does not include.
- £15 for a Linux Lite DVD with Microsoft’s trademark on it.
- Uncle Soft is gonna sue somebody!
Slice of Pi
- Made some changes to the PCmanFM file manager, to give it a cleaner look and feel with the theming of the desktop.
- I was so happy to hear that the Orca screen reader is now available on Raspbian.
- Several of my visually impaired friends and students were complaining about Orca not being available, especially since the RasPi caters to the education sector.
