  1. Motherboards are the heart of any PC build, but while we take certain features and form factors for granted, specialty use and just plain bizarre system design means we get a few oddballs…
  2. Windows 11 is fast approaching, but while Microsoft promises big improvements, is it really going to be a boon to gamers, or is it just going to be a side-grade with a new skin?
  3. Windows 11 is out of the dev channel and officially beta software now. The final release is close, so let’s see what new features are in Microsoft’s biggest operating system update in a long, long time.
  4. Game controllers have been around for as long as games have… But weird controllers have probably been around for longer. Let’s try a few for ourselves…
  5. Samsung's Unpacked event isn't over yet, but I managed to get my hands on a Galaxy Fold3 5G early - Let's put it through its paces! https://www.samsung.com/global/galaxy/events/unpacked/
  6. It’s been tough to find a GPU in 2021, but AMD’s hoping to improve supply with the RX 6600 XT. But as a midrange 1080p card, is it priced too high to compete?
  7. I didn't ask to go, but still a little bummed I didn't get to. At the end of the day, Linus was the obvious choice for a "you have 1.5 hours to get everything you can out of it" kind of video, especially while keeping it entertaining. I feel like I might have froze up trying to figure out which questions I wanted to answer first in the constraints given. I probably would have spent more time on the software, which would have been a mistake.
  8. It's my lucky day! Valve let me try the Steam Deck early - And it destroyed my expectations. Just how good is it? Let me explain...
  9. Apple’s iOS 15 public beta is available, and now you can get a peek at what’s coming this fall. Now it’s time to see what all the fuss is about…
  10. AMD’s latest – but perhaps not greatest – GPU has finally been officially confirmed, but the GPU isn’t the big news... What does this mean for the GPU market as a whole?
  11. Valid points! These excursions to the terminal were meant to be mini exercises to introduce the concept of the terminal and what it can be used for, while also providing a useful thing that they might benefit from at the end. As for wine-stable, this is true - I was going to use staging instead but changed my mind at the last minute, with the rationale being that Wine outside of Lutris and Steam usually just involves running random Windows executables. As for Flatpak, I did originally want to talk more about packages, but this seemed like a bit more of an advanced concept vs just u
  12. This is one major reason why most people don't use Linux. The reasons why Windows is the only OS option for many OEMs are myriad (and date back to the early 90s when MS split with OS/2), but the fact that Windows is "the standard" means that even if they might not care what operating system you use, they're going to default to Windows whether you want it or not. Support is in the kernel now as of Linux 5.4, while NTFS still uses FUSE. Paragon's NTFS driver has been submitted for mainlining in the kernel, though, so that might no longer use FUSE soon, too. Yes, there is a
  13. Windows 11 is about to make a lot of people feel left behind, but there’s one operating system that’s recently been getting better and better for new and old hardware… Check out Pop!_OS: https://pop.system76.com/ Grab BalenaEtcher: https://www.balena.io/etcher/ Grab Rufus: https://rufus.ie/en/ Get nvidia-patch: https://github.com/keylase/nvidia-patch Get obs-nvfbc: https://gitlab.com/fzwoch/obs-nvfbc
  14. Every gaming handheld I’ve ever owned has come from some big Japanese company – But these didn’t. What are they, and can they possibly be any good?

  15. These features are primarily for acceleration, HVCI still works without them.
