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.

Read all and please spread the word ==> github.com/doitsujin/dxvk/pull

I drop a rather surprising bomb about a new favorite, and revive my love for the Late 2013 MacBook Pro by slapping a variety of Linux distributions on it.

Plus: The L4E community shares what they appreciate about Linux that simply isn't possible on Windows, and Liam from GamingOnLinux.com brings us another fantastic mini-review.

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!

* Basically you'd use Arch on your phone BTW *

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.
