I backed it.
Thought about Startopia when I saw that video, I just have to forget that before playing it

A sunnier OpenTTD? I'm def buying this

Some initial thoughts on the Logitech Driving Force G29 Steering Wheel
7 February 2018 at 8:36 pm UTC

I replaced my old g27 with the g29 and really like it. Only using it on ETS/ATS now and then though.
One thing I hated about the G29 was the "missing buttons" on the shifter so I didn't buy it. Using my old G27 shifter with a USB adapter and very happy with the setup.
It all works out of the box.

I'm actually amazed that the bots are doing so well with the unconventional vehicles.

Railway Empire released with same-day Linux support
1 February 2018 at 8:24 pm UTC

I like the look and feel of it. It is lightweight (kinda expected that from the video and description) so it's more of a "couch thing" than anything else.
The hardest part so far has been to understand the insane signal system. Coming from OpenTTD etc. it doesn't make much sense in my head. The One-way-block thing you build for the first tutorial pretty much sums up the insanity

Think it'll be great for some relaxing evenings

Purple Library GuyI still don't see how those wind thingies on Mars are going to generate noticeable power.

SANDstorms beating the shit out of those poor blades?

The 'GPD Win 2' could be an interesting device for Linux gaming on the go
16 January 2018 at 10:05 pm UTC

chimpyThere's also the 10 inch Chuwi tablet. It's got similar specs as the previous GPD, but cost like 190$.

I think it also comes with Android, but not sure.

I'd wait for a sale on Teclast X3 Plus instead. I had everything working pretty good out of the box on that, though you need to config the touch screen in the usual not so user friendly way. I added another WiFi driver from AUR that worked better.
I am not saying it works as well as having a laptop but I guess it all depends on the use. It's also around 6 months ago I tried stuff out on it so I guess things have gotten better since then.

I had a Chuwi Hi10 but there was too much fiddling to get things to work on it. It was a year a go I think so don't remember much anymore (I don't have it anymore either) but the whole experience was a lot better with the X3.

Don't mean to sound like I know everything about this, I just want ppl to spend some quality time with Google to make sure they really know what works and not, especially out of the box and/or with easily available drivers.

I want a GPD Pocket like thingy instead as a mini laptop but min 1080 res. Really want something small that run Linux well out of the box with proper desktop applications. I hate touch screen keyboards with a passion so it would work better than a phone for my limited "on-the-go" life .
The keyboard on this seems better though, except for the Fn and backspace buttons.

Intel launches their new CPUs with Radeon RX Vega M Graphics along with two new 'NUC' mini-pc models
8 January 2018 at 1:07 pm UTC

I'd rather have something AMD when buying a mini-PC again, so I hope they do something similar. My china boxes all have ME disabled so that was kinda taken care of anyway but I can't justify giving Intel more money until they have proven that they care. Their statement on their latest issues just made that clear as day.
Won't make a dent in their budget ofc but I've gotten better at putting my money where my mouth is, so I even buy Linux games I don't really plan on playing
