I'm surprised Steam Linux usage hasn't spiked more. Proton has actually become pretty good! Ever since I upgraded my GPU (nothing fancy, a Polaris era card) all my games (think Fallout 4, Starceaft 2, etc) have run flawlessly.
All this is more impressive if you take into account the CPU is 10+ years old!
Today I have an important examn and a ton of work and my body aches even on places I didn't know existed. Gotta love end of semesters.
On the bright side I'm rediscovering my old music library, therefore I intend to go deaf on my own terms. #BlastFromThePast
Just printed off some reading for later tonight. Maybe I can wrap my head around it.
This weekend I got to play with #LVM. I bought a cheap and small SSD, and since I already had two HDDs I decided to try a more exotic partitioning scheme:
/ in a 20GB SSD partition
/var in a 20GB HDD partition
/home in an LVM volume backed by SSD cache
once everything was said and done, the old system felt as fast as anything current. Hooray #FOSS!
