- We were just talking about this.
- The Linux Vendor Firmware Service started in 2018 and is now 20 Million downloads strong!
- Richard Hughes, without your tireless work with the LVFS and vendors, desktop Linux wouldn’t be where it is today.
- Take the latest news with Lenovo launching 30 models of their computers with Linux preinstalled.
- You created the framework for that to happen. Congratulations!!!
- WebUI for smartd S.M.A.R.T monitoring.
- Handy for that remote server on the other side of the room.
- Living in electric SSD land I don’t really pay attention to SMART.
- Also, Docker?
- I would rather just run a service natively on my machine instead of relying on a container.
- Looks like in the scrutiny yml file you can send push notifications via Discord, Telegram, Slack, Teams and other social networks.
- In July we had talked about Ubuntu 20.04 LTS being certified to run on Lenovo laptops and workstations, now Lenovo will be selling 30 of them with Ubuntu 20.04 preinstalled!
- Lenovo knows its Linux user base, whether for AI, development, cloud or desktop, and that it is growing.
- Thinkpads are the most loved and used laptops in the Linux community.
- Linux runs beautifully on them, and they are so easy to upgrade and work on.
- And you will see more of us toting Thinkpads at SCaLE than any other manufacturer, and that includes Apple :-)
- Giving Dell a run for the money given the selection of laptops and desktops.
- Though an XPS an X1 carbon is not!
- When you ask work for a System76 laptop this is what you end up getting.
- Does it have a keyboard with tux instead of the windows logo?
elementary OS Slimbook (RTheren)
- At this point you need to pay money to help them test their OS.
- I’mma pass.
- I love that elementary OS is targeting laptops in the sweet spot, $400-600 range.
- Via the Slimbook and Star Labs laptops.
- It makes sense with the popularity that elementary OS has with new Linux users to have lower priced hardware.
- Is this memes?
- Instead of DOSEMU for Linux, this is “LINUXEMU” for DOS ;-)
- Now you can run Doom Linux in DOS!
- Will this stop me from having a dozen terminal windows open?
- Making tmux a bit friendlier is not a bad idea at all
- but with Konsole doing split terminal windows, I hope I won’t have to use something like that.
- I like that it uses keybindings like the i3 window tiling manager.
- Would be great to use with Pop!_OS and Regolith Linux distros and their i3 integration.
- Maybe 3mux will get me to switch from Extraterm.
- Even lets you record gifs directly.
- Firefox pops-up the screen/mic/cam sharing box.
- It can be used locally, server side, or just from the web link posted above.
- Works beautifully! Just tested it in Chrome and Firefox on my phone :-)
- You can record up to Ultra HD video resolution, PCM audio and 60fps.
- I saved my video to disk, but you can also upload to YouTube.
- I have played with similar web based audio recorders before, but this one does video too!
- Fixed an issue where the browser source could crash when browsing files.
- Fixed an issue with “always on top” sometimes not working with projectors.
- Fixed an issue where cameras using V4L2 would not respond correctly to pan/tilt controls.
- Fixed an issue where a user’s preferred language could not be detected correctly
- Please keep in mind the only officially supported version is the OBS PPA.
- I’m curious to know if they have finally added the browser and the RNnoise hotness.
- Both are available if you build from source.
- Ever wanted to control your DAW from your tablet or phone?
- Something you might not know about is the web server that comes with Ardour 6.x.
- Wonder how much code made it into Win10.
- Technically still on the NT kernel, right?
- Speaking of which, I need the WINE peeps to have a look at it so we can have anti-cheat software sorted for Proton.
- Doesn’t surprise me a bit, especially since Apple with OS X and Microsoft with Windows and DOS were essentially trying to copy Unix and the Xerox Alto.
- It’s a good thing they did, Xerox had no plans to bring it to market.
Slice of Pi
- That USB passthrough looks a bit jank for the M.2 SATA, ngl!
- Full size HDMI is much better and less likely to break.
- Though that’s a full on computer at this point.
- Needs active cooling!
