Quoting: Duke TakeshiAlso I wouldn't have thought that KDE plasma is the most popular DE, since I personally think it's more for power users who know how to handle all the customisation stuff that you can do there without breaking anything :D

KDE means that you can do all the customisation that you want without breaking anything. No fiddling around with text files, no searching around for extensions, no cryptic commands, just flick a switch in the GUI. If you don't like the result, just flick it back. Nice and easy, nice and discoverable.

This.
Also KDE can be used out of the box too, no tinkering needed, which is more than I can say for other DEs.
Plasma strikes me more and more as the DE in the Linux world.

Quoting: TimeFreezeHow about adding to the Controller Section the Stadia one? Also probably not worth it but would be interesting : An Internet Section where you can select a range of speed. Like 5Mbps or 50 or 100 and so on.
Stadia Controller added.

Internet Speed is a good idea, have made a note to add it later.

Never mentioned it but: The driver selection for AMD GPUs is debatable. You can actually use proprietary and OSS drivers at the same time. Anyway, I can't remember the last time that I used proprietary for gaming (normally I just stick on it for OpenCL).

The proprietary driver question is essentially just restating the GPU question again.

The 32-bit question is not super relevant any more, either. I'm sure that each of those 3 people using 32-bit gaming machines are doing so for a very good reason, but it's not like that number is ever going to trend upwards.

Quoting: BotonoskiMan, I really need a proper upgrade, it's been years.
Problem is I kind of have to throw the baby out with the bath water here, I can't upgrade the CPU without getting a new motherboard, and I can't use my current RAM in a new motherboard. Plus the front IO on my case is borked, and while the PSU works, that's only due to a slightly hacky fix I did to it maybe a year ago.

Still I can hardly justify an upgrade when it's a very stable system capable of playing all the modern titles I'm interested in.

At least change the PSU, it's the single most critical component of your system (the heart, if you want), and can be carried over to your next build (even better so if you choose a modular one).


I once had a slightly undersized PSU explode on me, it took the GPU with it. And I was lucky.

Ha! Pretty sure it was two people a while back. Percentages are weird, though, so I don't know if they changed.

So, why you need it? ^_^

Half-Lifr Alyx methinks.
My PC is probably capable of running the game, but is it capable enough to run it in a way that won't give me nausea? I doubt it.

KDE was the most popular DE for quite a while in the past, being ahead of Gnome. Then Ubuntu dropped Unity for Gnome, and big influx of Ubuntu users tilted Gnome usage up quite a lot. Now things are just naturally trending to how they were.

I feel you, I am in the same situation as you.... I would love to try a shiny-moar-cores Ryzen and upgrade to 32Gb of RAM, but my i7-4790k is still doing good job...

Oh, the patience :P
