okay 5k is done a little special but on any of the 4k monitors they would just need a single input.

the 5k would ether need dual displayport or a single usb type c in the way apple does now.

I would watch it only if Louis uploaded it as I refuse to watch ltt.

How come every single one of your posts is negative in some way about LMG and in general? Lighten up a little, these guys are awesome.

How about using the Threadripper 3990X with that 2TB Server Linus has to create the worlds “Fastest Computer”.

 

plus with all that ram why can’t he just load stuff off the RAM Disk.

The massive server projects from LTT are *by far* my favorite. The above link details how Timothy Mullican broke the Pi calculation world record this past year, beating out Google.

 

Google, March 2019: 31.4 Trillion digits

Timothy Mullican, January 29th, 2020: 50 Trillion digits

 

It'd be awesome to see the problem solving and the server infrastructure to set this world record with some 64 core Epic processors and 40 gigabit connections

a high end or a few systems build video for editors now that threadripper 3rd gen is out.

may also be a time to explore reslove vs adobe PP

A video about server GPUs like Nvidia Teslas and Radeon Instincts would be cool, I'd like to see how they perform in common benchmarks and (of course) "Can it run crisis?!".

some die-hard old school Thinkpad fans have been developing custom motherboards with Intel 8th gen, 10th gen CPUs for classic Thinkpad laptops from 2000s like x201, x61, T60. Some even put a 13 inch 3:2 screen in the x201's 12 inch chassis and created a slim bezel machine. I think it is a novelty of technology. Recently they are making the last model of modded motherboard called the x2100 project

Heres a fun idea, a bodge home made NAS.

 

Using older hardware (like talking things you can only find on facebook marketplace/ebay or have laying around from years of upgrading (except for drives maybe)) and showing different ways you can turn that into a network storage system (use different tools including Windows itself)

I saw the Linux episode the other day. There is no doubt Linux is the best as server and embedded but as a desktop it isn't quite there yet ( the last time I checked). I have worked on linux and unix servers every working day for over 10 years and occasionally a Linux desktop during that time.

There always some people saying to use linux as a desktop and newer more polished distros with the aim for use as a desktop are created everyday. I think LTT can use there staff as a panel to review linux desktop distros like they did for the keyboard switches. All distos can be reconfigured to look like each other or customized to meet everyone's perfect idea of a desktop but most people wont invest that effort, so the review should be based on out-of-the-box configuration. 

 

The criteria that I would like to see reviewed are.

  • Aesthetics - look and feel - we spend all day on our desktops why should we look at ugliness all day
  • Comfort  - choice of font, dithered gui elements and fonts, look and scale of icons, if animations add comfort or are annoying
  • Layout - do docks and panels add to easy-of-use or get in the way, are window frames to ornate and use up screen real estate or too sparse ...
  • Ease of use - there are window managers with great layout options but require using keyboard commands, can you hot plug usb thumb drives and common accessories 
  • Organization -  can you find an application or feature quickly. Does it make sense how it is organized so if something new is added you know how to find it whether it is settings, applications, or docs, downloads, and media files, recent files?  
  • Applications offered out of the box - tools and accessories like file browser , web browser, media player -  does it give you watered down over simplified applications, does it give you too many applications that most wont use or 5 different terminal applications that do the same thing.
  • Ease of customization - can it be customized to benefit the above criteria with a few simple steps   
  • Unique feature out of the box - it benefits the above criteria
  • How does it compare to windows and macOS

I think we all want to see linux desktop compete with windows and macOS.

I think a episode for each distro since this space is always evolving it could be an on going series.

I would create a youtube channel for this myself but I think it would be best if distros were reviewed by a panel instead of just my opinion.

LTT has it's staff and viewer that can provide that panel. This series could also drive the Linux community/industry to work towards making a Linux desktop that can compete or exceed Windows and macOS by giving them criteria to drive and innovate to.
