A look at how Steam Play is doing, based on the ProtonDB reports from July https://www.gamingonlinux.com/articles/a-look-at-how-steam-play-is-doing-based-on-the-protondb-reports-from-july.14733 #SteamPlay #Steam #Valve
Just installed #archlinux on a 2014 #thinkpad and boy was that a trial by fire. Still can’t get the WiFi to turn on at boot, but it runs! Sadly, from a first time user’s perspective, the #Arch installation guide left a lot out on EFI partitioning for me—or maybe I just didn’t find it very accessible.
In any case it’s working well enough for me.
Feels good when your favorite #podcast reads your feedback on the show!
Valve funded development of "Xrdesktop" - lets desktop environments GNOME & KDE work in VR.
Xrdesktop is a project to interact better within a VR space for presenting on VR head-sets.
The amount of resources Valve is pouring to improve the Linux ecosystem is amazing.
They've hired / have funded GPU driver devs, DXVK, Proton (Wine) devs (CodeWeavers), Keith Packard to work on direct display extensions...
gPodder.net is looking for a new maintainer!
If nobody comes forward by 2020, it'll be forced to shut down. Please boost to spread the word.
Note that this is the podcast-sharing website: I'm not sure about the status of the app, but I think that's still doing fine.
Bought everything I thought I needed for my #raspberrypi4 but turns out I bought the wrong charger and I don’t have a display cable for it :(. Guess I won’t get that ad-blocking pi-hole project up til the end of the week.

Anyone know of a #FOSS blogging platform/software? I've been searching around without success. Mastodon is great, but I think I may need more than 500 characters sometimes for how-to's or guides I may write.
Reasons someone using a PC should change from Windows to Linux?
Linux distros have more respect for your privacy.
Just run Wireshark on both Windows and Linux; you'll see that Windows loves to constantly chat with MS-servers.
Average Linux distro is completely silent until you choose to interact with the internet.
Being the product vs. using the product.
Linux gives you control & transparency. Easier and more secure usage.
