    The last weeks of march, either starting on the 22nd or the 29th. 
     
    Was going to do the 22nd but thinking the 29th may be better for giving people time to sign up

    New power supply installed system is up running OK so looks like no other damage done. Back to folding full power.

    The team is starting to shape up and I'm looking to have a group chat with them via PMs over the next day or so. After that we will work out specific dates and the like and get an event thread up asap.
     
    As usual if anyone has any game keys they would like to add to the event and/or the community pool please do get in contact  with me via PMs.
     
    Happy folding,

    Seeing as our production is starting to wane and production in general for most teams is also following the same trend how about another Folding Month? Perhaps we could reach out to LTT and see if they can get AIB partners to throw in a few scarce GPUs to incentivize people?
     
    Perfect time for it in the Northern hemishphere and getting cooler in the Southern as well.

    justpoet got a reaction from RoseLuck462 in ChromeOS surpasses MacOS/OSX market share. Now second most used OS in the PC space.   
    No, no they're not.  We got chromebooks recently and they SUCK.  Over 5 or 6 people in a zoom meeting and it starts dropping out.  Can't watch Full HD YouTube without stuttering and dropping a LOT of frames.  It is an intel based Chrome book with 4 gigs of ram, fully updated.  Just opening an email takes a second, vs being instant on any half decent computer.
     
    Chrome books are not "computers" any more than the pregnancy test running Doom is.  They're giant flaming paperweights of lowest cost consumerism that will need replacing quickly before causing a ton more ewaste.

    Sorry I've not been around guys. 
     
    Y'know how it goes, life happens!
     
    How are you all getting on? Still folding? I hope so.
     
    I fold on my hardware when I can but streaming is really putting a dent in my output some days when I forget to unpause. RIP me! 
     
    We have left over prizes from folding month, so... I've been thinking about trying a mid-week sprint in the coming month, a five day event, mon-fri. Sound like something you guys would be interested in?

    Windows has the history and people claim compatibility, even if they don't game and none of their old software will run on a new one anyway.
    MacOS has Mac people, and some folks switching due to iOS/WatchOS.
    ChromeOS has people/places that want bottom dollar regardless of function...typically schools.
    Linux...gets people fed up with any of the above...and most people then go back to one of the above after the user experience.
     
    I love Linux, but I've tried to daily drive it many many times, and the experience is always horrific...and I'm an old IT guy and privacy/security nut.  The draw to Linux by the folks who actually want Linux, and who work on creating/updating Linux, is just opposite of the draw for the mass market.  What they need to do is create defaults and simplicity of options with wizards that actually work for ease of use for the mass market, then hide everything else behind an "Advanced" button.  Then they need to have a unified UI and package structure so Linux here is like Linux there and programs don't run on only some linux stuff and not others...and then things need to be properly maintained and have good import/migration tools so users don't need to think to get there.  Those would go a long way towards making Linux MUCH more "mass market" usable, while retaining what the current Linux core people like.

    I've tried to run it on my laptop (which isn't even my daily driver) and the experience is never good enough to keep me there, I always just throw windows back on it because it does everything I need it to with having to dick around in the terminal and installing God knows what because a thread told me to just to get basic things to work right for me.

    It's a race to the bottom. Not sure which of the two is a bigger pile of garbage...
     
    I'd assume googles marketshare increase is due to school boards forcing children to utilize the OS for school work.
     
    Why wait until the kids an adult to create an advertising profile when you can get a head start while their still in elementry school?
