Unfortunately, Linux does not have RGB. RGB is the most important asset for any discussion on this site with the new crop of users.

Or show that games run with 10% higher FPS under Linux. That would do it.

Yeah....the little girl hentai avatar is really creeping me out....

Don't forget folding was often 2x the PPD under Linux vs. Windows.

And I've got 1M folding points from a Q6600. I needed every advantage I could get.

I am just stepping by and saying "hi".


A lot of the posts in here, I can definitely relate to.
Unfortunately, such is the state of affairs and the tide shift has taken away many people whom I've looked up to, Shrak being one of them.

I actually quite miss Shrak's presence. He was a stand-up fellow, and an inspiration for myself to hone my skills. I think at one point him and I were probably considered to be of roughly the same skill level from the outside - but the honest truth is he blew me totally out of the water 99% of the time. Miss seeing the excellent discussions Plan9, Rookie, Shrak, enorbet et al would bring to the table, and how in-depth we went for the sake of customization and optimization of our workflow.

My current position at work forces me to run Windows on more than one machine - and free time is substantially limited so it's been tough to get back into Linux gaming again... Though now seems like it's probably the best it's ever been (dxvk and all)

Indeed, I've learned so much from these threads over the years. Even though I didn't post in them, as I'd probably only pollute, I'd always followed them closely.

I've been a Linux convert now for two years. I'm on the forum but I don't really post because I don't feel like I can really contribute as my Linux knowledge is still in it's infancy. Don't get me wrong, Linux kicked my rear and I've had to learn a ton but it's still nowhere near the grand master wizard level.

You mean like The Matrix 4 that was recently announced ?

OR maybe season 4 of Mr Robot.

You have a point but at this juncture how much will Matrix 4 include actual "hacking" and cool "computer stuff".

You got me on Mr Robot, though
