  • Top 3 Most Ambitious Linux Distros For 2018

    Here are my picks of the 3 most ambitious and exciting Linux distros for 2018.

    Keep in mind that I'm not saying these are the best Linux distributions; I'm saying these are the distros I'm keeping my eye on for this year.

    If your favorite distro isn't in this short list, it probably means that:

    A. I don't think it is exciting
    B. I don't really like it (Debian, Ubuntu, Mint, etc)
    C. I don't know about it

    There's a lot to be excited about this year, so let's get excited!

  • SteamOS in 2018... Does it work?

    Back in December 2013, Steam announced a new operating system that would free us from Microsoft’s grip, so that we might enter gaming Nirvanah.

    What we got was SteamOS. And it’s kind of still in Beta…

    But first... What am I drinking?

    Tonight, Ninkasi's Dawn of the Red (Eugene, OR). It's a 7.0%, 66 IBU Red IPA. Pretty good taste. If you're just a fan of Reds, this is a bit hoppy. But for IPA lovers, this is a great brew.

    Parts in this video:
    Stratos PC Case: https://amzn.to/2ufxDGp
    Intel i7-8700k: https://amzn.to/2INaWN9
    Gigabyte Z370XP SLI Motherboard: https://amzn.to/2G7n89G

    Pick up a Steam Link so you don't have to go through the hassle of SteamOS just to play games on the big screen: https://amzn.to/2Jz8WZe

    According to the latest Steam Hardware Survey, 98.31% of all machines on Steam are running some variant of Windows. This has been the story really since Windows 95 burst onto the scene with Its slew of DirectX APIs. It's nearly become the industry standard, with most games for both Windows and X-Box taking advantage.

    Enter Valve… They proclaimed a vision for the future of gaming back in December 2013. One that would be free from Microsoft’s hold on consumers. One where you could build a PC from off the shelf components, and download a free operating system where your entire library of games would await you. Or, you could purchase a SteamBox! A prebuilt gaming computer with Linux preinstalled from your favorite retailer.

    And Valve said… Let there be SteamOS! But… was it good?

    Most people are familiar with Windows, Mac, or both, and probably use only one operating system most of their lives. You might be aware of others out there, such as versions of Linux, but probably don't know much about them. This video will go over all sorts of other options for free operating systems, how they relate to each other, and how you might pick a new operating system for your computer.

    Endless OS is a Linux-based operating system which provides a simplified and streamlined user experience using a customized desktop environment forked from GNOME 3. Rather than using a traditional Linux package management system, Endless OS uses a read-only root file system managed by OSTree with application bundles overlaid on top.

  • The Code: Story of Linux documentary (MULTiSUB)

    I am thankful for all the views! Thank you all for helping me put this at the top of the search results! Much love!

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0315417

    I added all the subtitles I could find online. And my own subtitles, which are: English and Swedish. Now there are 8 languages:

    English, German, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish

    If the subtitles don't show up, this is how to enable them: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kzzqSNSMhUM


    If you want to help improve the subtitles, you can download the SRT files here:

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/ma7jv16cedccd1q/Subtitles_for_The_Code_2001_Story_of_Linux_3.zip?dl=0

    If you want to help spread this video, you can make a new subtitle for your native language. If it's not one of the languages already available. In that case, you can just help edit (and improve/correct) the SRT file for that language.

    Just send a message to my email if you want to help with the subtitles: siddharta.buddha.christ@gmail.com

    Please use the SRT format for your subtitle and save it with UTF-8 (Unicode) character encoding.

    Examples of subtitle editors:

    http://www.jubler.org/ (Windows, Mac, Linux)
    http://www.nikse.dk/subtitleedit/ (Windows)
    http://gnome-subtitles.sourceforge.net/ (Linux)

    This way everybody benefits, in the spirit of open source :)
    Thank you!

  • Alternatives are NOT Replacements! - Operating System Philosophies & Linux Ramble

    HEY! I've just done a LONG, in-depth conversation w/ Bryan Lunduke and TheLinuxGamer about video production on Linux! Check it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BcPA1kmekyo

    I received quite the spectrum of interesting comments on yesterday's "Linux is Easier than Windows" video, so I wanted to address some of the philosophical differences here.

    Software alternatives are not the same as software replacements. Also shunning anyone for OS choices is absurd. Don't be "that guy."

    MORE INFORMATION ON TORRENTS
    Using a torrent or bittorrent client means that you will be downloading the Mint ISO file from other users around the world who are also using a torrent client: it's called a p2p, or peer-to-peer, connection. Once the download is complete, the torrent program will begin "seeding" the Mint ISO. In other words, it will make the Mint ISO file available to other torrent users, and can possibly use your Internet bandwidth to upload the Mind ISO file for other users.

    To stop sharing the Mint ISO file after the download is complete, either uninstall Deluge, or (1) Go into the Deluge program, (2) Right-click on the Mint ISO file name in the main Deluge window, (3) Left-click "Remove torrent", (4) Once the new window opens up, left-click "Remove torrent" again. Deluge will no longer take up your Internet bandwidth to share the ISO file. Good to go! :)
