    I got a macbook air for school in 2012, built my own pc in 2015, installed Linux Mint on my pc in 2017 and I'm working on a website for school that uses firebase and react :)
    About a month later and I no longer use Linux mint, windows Linux subsystem works with my favorite terminals and vscode, so no need for the Linux desktop anymore, since windows is more convenient for everything that doesn't involve the terminal or file system.

  1. I'd wait til you have all the money and spend it all at once, you never know when new hardware comes to market
  2. I'd wait for the new AMD Ryzen 3000 series which should be about the same price but with 2 more cores than before (probably will be announced at computex, end of may)
  3. Blender doesn't have support yet but it seems like maya is getting support soon: I'd wait for the release before buying a new gpu (we don't know how much better an rtx gpu is vs a normal gpu, this could just be a gpu thing)

    2x2 video wall

    pro tip if the tv you're looking at has a thicker chin than top bezel, mount the top 2 tv's upside down to cut down on the bezel
  5. For the one that works/looks most like windows I'd get Linux Mint, but be warned that you'll probably have lower fps and maybe games that don't work natively on linux at all (you'll need to install additional programs to get these running)
  6. @Den15 Nice, Linux is great, you don't have to worry about getting the crappy version of docker then As for monitors I'd not recommend anything under 1440p, 1080p is really limiting from my experience (laptop for school) and it's always a relief coming home to 2x4k monitors
  7. well yeah but only if you know beforehand what you're gonna be running your code on, you have to make a seperate binary for every architecture
  8. I have but on the netflix site it says edge is also supported
  9. yeah I've got "our planet" up and it's only going to 1080p netflix debug info:
  10. I didn't, I pieced out the information myself but i've checked all the steps and I've got everything
  11. yeah it was already installed
  12. I'm using displayport or hdmi 2.0 depending on the computer, if I was not my displays wouldn't be running at 60hz I'm also trying to watch the highwaymen since it's a new title from netflix in 4k
  13. yeah but netflix tells us it is possible on desktop https://help.netflix.com/en/node/13444
