The next AMD RDNA 2 card revealed with the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT

The 6700 XT looks pretty sweet. If they could bring the TDP to 185W like the 5700 it would hit the sweetest spot. Although, like it has been mentioned, we'll need to wait until the mining craze is over.

Funny reading this on a website called "gamingonlinux".

Care to elaborate why?

Because gaming is more pointless then mining...

Is it so with gaming because generally speaking one doesn't make a profit? Because that is a horrible excuse.

Linux lands on Mars with Perseverance and Ingenuity

Quoting: EikeThere's no real question Linux already is dominating the world, from the smallest to the largest, from most people's pockets to even Mars.

Except one little village called desktop.

Technically, not the world but our Solar Systtem :D

Honest question: Has there ever been any mention on what kind of OS any of the other probes* had? I assume it was some bespoke system? Or maybe a Unix system? Maybe Windows even? xD

* Not only probes but also the Rover for example.

Take-Two Interactive hit the DMCA nuke on GTA III and Vice City reverse engineered effort

Were I Take-Two, or any other similar company, I would hire the developers. Reverse engineering is difficult and if they managed to also bring improvements and port the code to other systems other than Windows, I would be like: "Hell, work for me and let's make next GTA/Assasins/whatever even better!"

Mainly Cyberpunk 2077, and doing some side-missions on Dragon Ball Kakarot, which I finished few weeks ago. A DnD session with some friends too, even though no strictly a video game, definitely played on Linux due to the online session :D

How do you like these keyboards? Did it take long to get used to them? I attempted to use one before I knew how to type properly and it was a mind bender.

I have issues typing on standard keyboards comfortably due to American football injuries to both hands. This led me to prefer chiclet keyboards over mechanical due to the low actuation force. It wasn't until I forced myself to learn to type properly that ergonomic keyboards started to "click" for me. I've now got the logitech Ergo K860 and I love it. If this keyboard had back-lighting and the build quality of the MX keys it would be perfect in my eyes.

The open source firmware and the fact that system76 makes this keyboard makes me want it but I'm afraid it would be physically painful for me to use. Hopefully there is an ample return window as I'd really like to try it.

I haven't tried it yet, too expensive. Only have experience with an MS ergo keyboard similar to the Logi you posted, and it was a delight to type with. Then I discovered mechanical keyboards and not keen going back to chiclet keys. Have been saving for a while for the Moonlander, but for now I'm using a Phantom non-ergo keyboard.

Hope they release a nice keyboard. Unfortunately, since I learned from the ZSA Moonlander my eyes can't look anywhere else: https://www.zsa.io/moonlander/

However, my wallet is looking everywhere else.
