sfera,

May I ask why you switched back to ext4?

sfera,

I just realized that I used Ubuntu for 20 years. I might be interested in switching to Fedora. How ist your experience so far?

sfera,

I think that the question is primarily about Desktop Apps, since this is the Linux community.

sfera,

I understand your point. “Program” is a more wider term. Javascript executed in your browser could be a program too. App is just a short term for a standalone program with a GUI, IMO.

It’s just how languages change with time. For example what we simply call “libs” today used to be called by their full name “program libraries”. You don’t often see someone calling them like that anymore. I feel that communication nowadays requires us to constantly check the context in order to avoid misunderstandings. It’s maybe a reason why I don’t write that much online anymore.

sfera,

Any hardware vendor taking Linux support seriously is good news!

sfera,

I’m afraid that there is no profit for Nvidia to justify the work for supporting older hardware.

sfera,

Why use big words when can use comic speak? Make brain no hurt! Boom!

sfera,

I’m one of those evil people who works in marketing.

Yet here you are, complaining about the ads in Windows. Are you sure that you can go without them? :-D

sfera,

Visual Studio Code […] is (partly or totally, I’m not sure) open source.

Visual Studio Code is like Android is relative to the Android Open Source project. As far as I know, VS Code comes with an additional Microsoft layer of telemetry and closed source additions in its binary form. Not to mention the license which basically assumes the right to do almost anything to the underlying system. That’s why projects like VSCodium came into existence.

Please anyone, correct me if I’m wrong.

China's Xi Jinping in Paris: “It’s a slap in the face that Emmanuel Macron is giving us,” say the Uighurs of France (westobserver.com)

The French president Emmanuel Macron’s decision to welcome Chinese President Xi Jinping to France has sparked anger among the Uyghur community in France. The Uyghur people consider Xi Jinping to be responsible for the genocide and persecution of the Uyghur population in Xinjiang, China. Many Western countries, including...

sfera,

I would at least expect outstanding genocide and human rights abuse topics to be at the top of the list of things needed to be clarified before anything else can be discussed.

sfera,

Changing Biden’s mind won’t automatically feed those people. Providing food and basic necessities to the civilians trapped there should be the first priority.

sfera,

Then work on one generating heatmaps instead fog-of-war!

sfera,

This is so much better than the real answer!

sfera,

Is he just using words for not saying anything?

sfera,

Related app, but which can also be used without Trakt: Series Guide.

sfera,

What about something like Heroic Game Launcher? I’m not advocating for Epic, just pointing out that alternatives exist.

sfera,

As I previously said, I don’t advocate for buying from Epic. But if it happens that you have some games from their Store (for whatever reason, like ones you got for free) there are alternatives to their client.

sfera,

Playnite? I would love to use it if it would support Linux.

sfera,

I wonder how it is compared to Clementine/Strawberry.

Wanting to dual boot Windows with Kubuntu. Am I fine getting a Windows 10 key instead of 11?

A couple of months ago, I wiped Windows off my old laptop and installed Kubuntu instead. Now, I was thinking of dual booting Windows additionally for a certain game (definitely not League of Legends, for sure not) and will need to buy a new key. Am I fine getting a copy of Windows 10 despite Microsoft’s discontinuation, or...

sfera,

They are implicitly asking about known compatibility issues.

sfera,

After reading the article I had no other choice than to upvote…

sfera,

Bastion has a good soundtrack of which some tracks could benefit from a higher dynamic range.

Reference: …bandcamp.com/…/bastion-original-soundtrack

sfera,

That’s what I thought too. But then again, there’s no “The Starcraft Band” which could record a new master. So I think that in the case of video games soundtracks which are not attributed to specific artists, “remaster” becomes a bit of a fuzzy term. You mention remix, but it could also be a cover or it could be accepted as a remaster (if it would be something official).

All of the above, including my original question is just curiosity and not meant to diminish the effort put into creating the audio tracks.

sfera,

Can you please tell us something about the process of creating the tracks?
