      How about using Wine in WSL to execute windows programs? It is like running docker inside a docker.

      Honestly it will be a glorious day when professional software finally ignores windows and moves to Linux. I would even take Ubuntu if it means getting rid of Windows 10.

      What I'm thinking I'm going to do is run SPICE Guest Tools in a Windows VM running on QEMU/KVM via Virt-manager.

       

      It won't run video games like true GPU pass-through but it should offer a very usable dual-desktop experience. I have to test it a little more extensively than I have at this point in time though for my own applications.

      In short: WSL 2 sucks as it requires hyper-v which takes exclusive control over the virtualisation (even if I don't have any WSL 2 running) and the workaround other companies need because of that are catastrophically bad.

      that's not a problem if you just VM everything on hyper-v

  2. please for the love of god can you look something up before posting? the iMac in question here is a 2008 model, which supports both Yosemite and El Capitan.
  3. alright well, my 2011 MBP is starting to seriously go wrong. 

     

    aside from the graphics, it's always worked fine, and I've been warned by perhaps hundreds of people over the time that I've owned it that it can break any minute, as they are legendary for their unreliability. 

     

    well, today it broke. it no longer outputs any sound from the speakers. it doesn't even detect them as an output. 

     

    I could live with integrated graphics but I can't live without sound, so it's time for the 2011 to be retired for good. I am keeping it as it's a beautiful Mac and can still be used just fine with headphones, but as a daily it's done.

      umm new speakers?

      or is the connector broken?

      Most likely dead sound chip.

      headphones work fine. i noticed it because I was listening to music with headphones, I unplugged them and then I noticed that the speakers don't output at all anymore. 

  4. I rebuilt my brother's pc today. he bought a new case (long overdue) and we re-did the entire build together basically. 

     

    how it was:

    vs how it is now:

    it's a much needed improvement. 

     

    specs if anyone cares:

    Intel Core i5 4670K (stock)

    16GB of mix-and-match DDR3

    GTX 1050

    Gigabyte mobs (dunno exactly, it's an overclockable board but the ram isn't stable if the machine is OC'd, and for now the 1050 is the bottleneck anyways not the cpu)

    Corsair RM550X

    a few random SSD's for storage

  5. in my quest to care more about the environment I've resorted to using my laptop 90% of the time I wanna use a computer. I just can't justify having my pc and 3 displays powered up just for some web browsing. I am leaving it plugged in and set up of course, but it won't see as much use now. my laptop will take care of 90% of my computer use which should also have the side effect of my room being 2 degrees cooler, that's how much difference it makes...

      about 32 confusing metric measurements. 
      I actually like the metric system for everything else, but temperature is actually pretty good in imperial


      Anything below 0 - holy crap it's less than nothing, that's super cold!

      0 - No warm? That's cold!

      100 - ok 0-100, so we've gone from cold to hot

      Above 100 - too hot, turn it back down!

       

      Now for the middles
      30's - Man it's only 1/3rd the way to hot, my water is still frozen

      60's - ok 2/3rd to hot, so we're in the kinda warm zone.

      90's - ok now we're in hot territory! Starting to sweat over here

      maybe it's cache. disable Adblock then reload the page by pressing control+shift+r

  6. yeah firefox is awesome. I prefer Safari over it but eeeh on Windows/Android you don't have that choice...
  7. I'm super happy, finally some content I'm legitimately interested in
  8. i've ditched Chrome like a month ago now, I'm now using Firefox on Windows and Safari on Mac exclusively. it's been nice.
  9. why does the forum load 2 tracking networks? I understand google analytics but the other 2? why?

      Doubleclick was acquired by Google, not sure about linksynergy.

  10. ugh why does YouTube 720p look so ass? on my MacBook which has a 1280x800 screen, so 720p content is native to the screen, it looks like crap compared to setting it to 1080p... why am I forced to use more cpu power on something that shouldn't make any difference?

      maybe because 1280x800 is slightly bigger than 1280x720

      oh, whoops, right

  11. is the app open source? if not then you have no idea what it's really doing.
  12. yes and no, the user would still get a prompt but i see your point.
  13. since you are so picky, i'd go to a large electronics store that sells displays and just compare them in the store if they have them on display...
