Quoting: Perkeleen_VittupääI like the 4th one.

Heresy!

P.S: I like the 3rd one, also a heretic for the purists I guess :D

AMD reveals Zen 3 and the Ryzen 5000 series - out November 5
9 October 2020 at 8:22 am UTC

I have a 2600 + Radeon 5700. Considering the games I play, I will be waiting for AM5, Zen 4 and whatever GPU is out in a year/couple of years*

* Except Baldur's Gate 3 and Cyberpunk think otherwise

Dell announce new XPS 13 laptop models, will support moving from Windows to Ubuntu

I use an XPS 13, originally with Windows, at work. Performance is nice, but the screen is horrible, flickering constantly -a lot of garbage when unplugged- and the keys and feel aren't of my like. I'm even considering returning the laptop to my employer and get one that I like for myself and use it for work.

Play more classics including one from 1976 with a new ScummVM release

I've been in love with ScummVM for decades.

Quoting: peta77office 365 works without any problems with firefox on linux... we have it at work and i didn't have any problems yet (ok, i still use thunderbird and libreoffice most of the time)...

Not all the options in the O365 apps are available on the web version though.

Quoting: x_wingWake me up when they release office.

Unlikely. MS wants everybody to use Office 365 anyway, and is very likely to make local versions less and less desirable over time, until the elbowed everybody into their cloud. The last thing they're likely going to do is add new platforms to stand-alone office.

Not necessarily. Office 365 can also be self-hosted, and even included with Nextcloud. Granted, this is the backend service for their cloud but I can easily imagine a flatpak/snap/docker version of O365 might be released for Linux.

Microsoft Edge comes to Linux in October as a preview

QuoteMost likely though, since they (like a lot of others) target Ubuntu directly, they might mean the Snap Store.

If the release it's anything similar to PowerShell, it will mostly be available for apt, zypper, yum, etc via repos too.

Not interested in Edge though.

Holly shit, I didn't know about the acquisition! Man, it's really discouraging seeing how companies are being engulfed by bigger companies constantly and amass an even larger portion of IPs and talent :(

System76 announce more Linux laptop models get open source firmware

Awesome news! Will those integrations be available for other distros? I wish Pop_OS! was based on Debian instead of Ubuntu, I think I would like it more.
