My handy(ish) guide for multi-track recording on #Linux with #OBS without the need for additional hardware. #LGCcares

Today we talk about ways to non-destructively test out Linux before wiping your current windows build.

#Steam is coming to Chrome OS! #Nvidia releases a beta driver for #Vulkan 1.2, bsnes HD brings widescreen to classic games, and the quickest way to get your gaming rig running #Linux.

KDE wants to become a safe haven for #Windows 7 refugees, #Linus doesn't want you using #ZFS, hardware accelerated VP9 comes to Chromium, and a Pi powered luggable.

Mozilla just laid off 70 fantastic people. If you can help them - open positions, offering helpful conversations and references, anything else - please say so.

Use #MozillaLifeboat as an umbrella tag for easy finding. (It's already flowing on the birdsite.)

If you've been affected, I'm happy to chat directly. Also have some open positions (see rest of this thread). But doesn't have to be today - take time to recover if you can.

Most of all: thank you folks for making the web better.

On this new KDE OEM laptop, the Kubuntu focus:

"On first login the user is prompted to connect to Dropbox or Google Drive or OneDrive. "

We don't do ourselves a lot of favors as a community when we fail to atleast promote options like nextCloud in the same breath as the other cloud-collaboration-megacorps.

And I know this isn't being developed solely by #KDE. But KDE is promoting the hell out of it and the #Kubuntu team is supposedly a partner.

Canonical has NOT deprioritised the desktop. In fact, we're going to be expanding the #Ubuntu Desktop team in 2020 💪


It's a new year, so quote tweet this with a #Linux fact or tip you think most people don't know.


Heading into the London office for an desktop "Yaru Designfest". Lots to do ahead of the 20.04 LTS release! Looking forward to meeting some of the wonderful community people behind our default theme. 🤩

Serverless computing? Kubernetes? Private cloud? Multi-cloud? Containers? Download our whitepaper for an examination of the latest emerging technologies in the world of #cloud. tweeted by @ubuntu

Really enjoying having Wikipedia, etc available while offline. :blobhappy:

I highly recommend downloading Wikipedia for offline use and then serving it locally via #Kiwix

What's cool about this is that you can just set up a login script that runs the skyline generator and you get a new wallpaper every time you log in :D
