Just got around reading it, great article!

I sometimes reflect on this whole ride and I tell to myslef how exciting this whole ride has been, and hopefully there is an even brighter future :)

Hints appear of Valve making a handheld Steam "SteamPal" Neptune console

I though this only happened to me cause of my shitty rig heh Good thing is you can set it to happen on the background.

Well, thinking on it, look at how popular other handhelds like GPD Win has been and the excitement around things like the Alienware Concept UFO prototype and others. There's probably a good market for it, probably more so than VR I would say honestly.

If they were to tie it with a Steam Cloud Play (or whatever the Cloud streaming is named) it could work pretty nicely.

Star Labs have now fully revealed and launched the slick 14" StarBook Mk V Linux laptop

I wonder why Star Labs don't do any AMD laptops? This same machine with an AMD could sell cheaper (I believe) and to me it would be more appealing. Also maybe get rid of that 2.0 USB and add another USB-C Thunderbolt 4 :D

System76 tease shots of their custom Keyboard and release the source code

Quoting: ArehandoroHope 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.

I am in the exact same situation :D

System76 announce the AMD powered Pangolin with Ryzen and Radeon

Here's hoping the my laptop doesn't die until Thunderbolt 4/USB4 is in an AMD laptop like this one, I want to be able to plug an eGPU if desired. I think a nice laptop like this one + egpu is the future (for me) :)

Else I'll have to get a desktop.

What are you playing this weekend? We're Linux distro-hopping
30 August 2020 at 11:38 am UTC

So I've been playing DRAG which is hard (just going thorugh the first challenge) and was planning on playing Dead Cells but for some reason the game doesn't fully detect the Steam controller and I inadvertently removed my saved game so I didn't even start 😂

Might do some 7 Days to Die or Team Fortress 2.

They are offering it, it's just none of DE willing to implement it
What do you mean? Is there something Nvidia-specific they need to implement?

EGLStreams

And you guys know what's the funniest thing? Windows 10 will soon have Wayland support in WSL2 no matter what GPU will be in use.

I don't have all the info/know the story, but I believe the whole linux ecosystem was pitching for GBM and nvidia just went their way with EGLStreams?

Chrome OS appears to be edging closer to Steam support with Linux
2 July 2020 at 12:44 pm UTC

Quoting: WorMzyDon't chromebooks use ARM processors? If so, then they need *something* to emulate a x86 processor in order to make this a worthwhile exercise. I guess that's why they've gone for a VM solution (qemu can emulate x86: https://www.qemu.org/docs/master/system/target-i386.html). No idea what the performance will be like though.

I think wine works on arm to a certain extent? https://wiki.winehq.org/ARM

Valve update Team Fortress 2 to deal with bots and chat abuse
17 June 2020 at 12:32 pm UTC Likes: 2

I've zero affiliation with them, but found the experience in creators.tf servers to be really enjoyable, and to be the closest to the "old casual" mode (There is a server time limit for each map, for example), they are Community server so there won't be bots and/or chat abuse.

There's also Happy Trigger Gamers which is mostly Uk focused I believe and the activity on the server fluctuates a lot, but I had really nice games in their servers.

To this day, TF2 is my all time favourite game :)

Vulkan API support for Raspberry Pi 4 is progressing well

Quoting: elmapul8GB of ram... (the same as an ps4)
vulkan support
cheap as hell..

i know its video capabilities should be fair inferior to PS4, but still this is geting impressive and turning into nice gaming machine

If only you could hook an evga into the Raspberry...maybe later iteration gets thunderbolt? One can only wish.
