Destination Linux | Episode 154.

Planet's best Linux-podcast.

During a heated yet friendly conversation, Michael's (already legendary) 9 bucks stool is about to work as a timeout spot!

Maybe he'd build a penalty box around that stool in the tradition of ice hockey? Zeb appears Zen (master) and is merciful referee though.

Noah is cool as ever & Ryan has interesting "leapy" predictions.

An exceptional LINUX-DECADE of 2020's is upon us?

The growth of desktop Linux can be checked on the area of gaming: gaming is one of those resorts deciding the OS for millions and Linux has never been stronger in that area as today.

One place the Windows-refugees flee to is Linux.

Key words: Steam + Proton + Lutris + DXVK. Picture from /r/Linux_gaming.

While deploying their latest #SFOS release, #Jolla also warns against #Aptoide, which is no longer endorsed. This is probably true for everyone, not only #SailfishOS users.

Moreover the update announcement confirms that the support for Nextcloud will be available in next release.

- Changelog:

The DXVK developer: "entering maintenance mode".

Part of the reason stated by himself: "Most of the 1.4.x releases introduced major regressions which I cannot reproduce, and therefore cannot debug and fix..."

Doitsujin is handling this project quite alone! He needs help.

Valve, please: hire him full-time so he can refactor, assign manpower to lower the workload.

Manjaro Linux team represents ARM (the primary hardware environment for many mobile device OS's).

The resilient team of Manjaro have teased it already a lot. Now proud to have their first Alpha of Manjaro Linux ARM ready for the Pine64's Pinephone!

Thoughts about Disney aside, for all the bad they represent, lets think about the fact that Linux got addressed by the company itself and in just a few days.

Meanwhile: Google Drive is nowhere to be seen coming for Linux.

These are not recommended for use to start with, as the goal is user freedom, but these definitely help Linux adoption.

Once on Linux, the free as in freedom alternatives can be found thereafter.


* Reasons to ditch Windows for Linux! *

First of all, you don’t have to pay a cent to download and install Linux on your computer. This means you can spend money on better computer hardware or simply get your hands on a computer for less.

That’s a big deal for educational computers, office machines for your business or even just the HTPC you’ve been thinking of buying.
