@greyor @emacsomancer Well, if you really want to play online you have PS Plus account which costs like $70 a year or something like that. With that account you regularly have access to discounted games throughout the year. And each month you get one free "top tier" title. Worth something. And purchasing online you can get them really cheaper. Purchasing in the store allows you to share games with friends. In total I don't think it's very expensive 🤷
@emacsomancer @greyor For games I'm more of an PS4 user. Although I have a feeling I turn it on just to install updates these days. 😄 Played it often for the first 6 months I had it, but for the last year and a half or so, I'm turning it on like once in month or even less.
For PC gaming, Not much of a gamer really 😄 Although I'm trying to "learn" CS:GO a bit and sometimes I turn on Portal, just for fun. Desktop could handle top games with ease as well, but I'm not having time to play much 😄
@greyor Using BSD is more similar to MacOS in my experience than to Linux for example 🙂 GNU did much additions on the tools, some changes were for the better and some for the worse. 🤷
Different, but similar still. Manpage helps on any system
@greyor Well, MacOS IS Unix as well, sooo 🙂
@greyor It's a tool after all 🙂 I prefer Linux privately, but Mac works good enough as well. Especially if you buy into their system. Even without iCloud stuff, Mac <-> iPhone <-> Watch <-> Airpods ... Work like magic together. Liking that part a lot.
But still, Linux is my love 😄
@greyor I decided to not push too much. I usually just give pointers and folks interested to learn more reach out to me. While trying to shove something up to someone else throat I usually got huge push-back, so not worth it anyways 🙂
Luckily for my work I may use whatever I want. But I choose to use MacOS due to the fact that MS tools such as Teams and Skype For Business which I have to use regularly don't work on Linux and I would have to have VM anyways. So Macbook is more lightweight 🙂
@greyor These days I don't see why would regular user use Windows. I mean, for most of them Chromebooks are just fine. But even those "Slight-power-user" types are doing more than fine on Linux.
For example, my little sister uses Linux exclusively on her computers since she was 3 years old. She's 11 now and it is intuitive for her to do anything. I mean, she knows at this point how to use any OS, but Linux seems quite logical.
Also worth noting, she does lots of wacom work 🙂
@farhan Not sure, although syntax should be quite straight-forward.
I know there's complete DE, merge between gnome and i3, called regolith desktop: https://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2019/06/install-regolith-linux-i3-gaps-ubuntu
Perhaps not what you're searching for, but interesting 🙂
@greyor I used fwupdmgr in the past, but this time it popped up and prompted me, so I clicked on it. Was aware it exists, but still amazed by the fact how Linux these days is really user friendly 🙂
@farhan Wish you all the best!
Apparently #ZFS isn't keen towards the nested/interdependent pools. Eg: (home and storage pool. home/user as /home/user and storage/home/user/something as /home/user/something). This is hit and miss depending on which one gets imported first.
And with same cables, same displays, without proprietary drivers, resolution is 1080p no issues. during the whole boot process. Which is then BTW flicker-free!
So, Fuck you nvidia! I repeat. Fuck you nvidia!
I'll probably take a plunge and just get RX 5700 XT and be done with this torture.
Any experiences with those new AMD cards?
So after installing nvidia drivers on Fedora quite a few things get on my nerves.
For example, Wayland is automatically disabled although it works if you enable it like so: https://medium.com/@alex285/how-to-enable-eglstreams-on-fedora-29-30-gnome-nvidia-wayland-fa28a67663bf
Performance on wayland sucks regarding gaming. Within wayland session FPS on Counter Strike Global Offensive is like 19 FPS, while on Xorg Session with proprietary drivers it's 290... Small difference right?
Why the hell is nvidia unable to set proper resolution during the boot? Goes to 1024x...
