    This forum? Yes it is.
    It's linked on their contact us page too as such: https://linusmediagroup.com/contact-us

    It's powered by Invision Community. A lot of communities use it.

    To elaborate a little further on that:
    LMG pays for the hosting, storage and forum engine. several LMG staff are moderators here, including (but not limited to!) Jake, Alex, Collin, Anthony and of course Linus. None are active in the daily moderation of the forum. as mentioned, daily moderation of the forums is done by (respected) community members. They're not paid! At least not by LMG Linus does this to free himself and his staff from time-consuming questions of fans/supporters and unfortunately also trolls LMG is a business and their prime business is making video, not dealing with trolls, silly questions and legitimately interested people who want advise or show off their builds. HTH!

    What will happen in 2021?
     
    - Apple will release the lineup for power users, with an even more powerful M2 chip, leaving also the power-hungry "Pro"-Laptops in the Windows ecosystem in the dust.
    - I will get my 3080 I ordered on launch day (hopefully)
    - Linux will stay niche
    - Mac OS will increase its market share 
    - Windows will stay on the throne
    - Maybe Neuralink will get some breakthrough but will still remain FAR away from the regular consumer market.
     
    In the long run...? (Highly speculative)

    I think, the industry is approaching a tipping point where things, as we have known them for the last 20 years, might change. Apple will show that the world is not dependent on ATX-Standards, not dependent on open boot loaders, not dependent on x86 and not dependent on modular systems. 
    I would name this trend maybe "Consolification" of PC? Systems where the SoC itself starts to play a bigger role. Systems not running "legacy Win32" applications, but Windows 10X. Systems that tightly integrate available accelerators like Apple does with the ML-Cores on the M1. You would buy a PC like you buy an XBox today. Some systems might come with a bit of upgradeability like a PCIe-Slot for a graphics card (CUDA is still a thing ).

    If - and I repeat in capital-bold-underscored: IF - closed SoCs become the norm, locked boot loaders (as we know in smart phones or the new apple ecosystem) - might become normal. Installing an open-source operating system (like... you know... Linux?) could become really difficult. If Microsoft is successful with Win on ARM in the long run (e.g. Qualcomm getting their job done or MS themselves start creating their own like Apple), they could technically say: "If you want Linux, go WSL."
     
    No, I don't like this projection either - because choice is always better for the consumer. Linux might lose in this race on the desktop and is pushed more and more for being for servers and embedded systems. People might get locked out of their own tech needing to rely on trust - trust either Apple, Microsoft or Google (or a mix of them). 
     
    We might have a city to burn.

    Beatsaber is definitely good. I don't know if it's available on the Quest 2, but you can try Altspace, it's a fun social-area-type I don't know how to explain it game. Also PavlovVR is a nice shooter.

    Sandro Linux reacted to AndreiArgeanu in Should Websites Be Required To Have A Dark Mode Option?   
    No, websites shouldn't have any requirements, sometimes dark modes can't be implemented due to design choices. No one should be obligated to include features in their websites if they don't want to.

    Sandro Linux reacted to Scheimong in Linus dipped deep into politics in the WAN show. I have some opinions and some answers. Where can I respond?   
    I mean, there are always other places to go to if all I want is to voice some political opinion. It's just that since one of the primary functions of this forum is to host discussions on LMG's videos and streams, I think it would be inappropriate if there's content on LMG's channels that we are not allowed to talk about here.

    Sandro Linux reacted to AndreiArgeanu in What is your favourite Web Browser?   
    Personally I use tor and Firefox, tor I only use sometimes, Firefox always. Chrome just isn't for me, it seems to eat a bit more ram than firefox and lacks some features(or lacked when I last used it) like picture in picture mode(allows me to pop any video outside the browser window and resize it), not to mention that Firefox has a large focus on privacy, while Google, well it's Google.
