    Linux Gaming Is on a Life-Support System Called Steam

    Windows had a lag for a bit, but is recovering now with Server 2016. As a Cloud Support Tech for about 2 months now, I have seen 5 companies move off Linux web and database servers to Windows specifically because they had stability and support issues. First off, they had major problems getting...

    Linux Gaming Is on a Life-Support System Called Steam

    1. It's easy to install Ubuntu and Mint, and use the things built into it, mostly. There are still a few things that it takes some text file editing to do things that are built in. Adding any additional programs is nearly impossible unless you go to the command line and run some "apt-get...

    Linux Gaming Is on a Life-Support System Called Steam

    For the most basic stuff, like installing some apps from the apps center and running basic office or web apps, it's usable, but that is only a minor segment to what a computer is used for. If that's all a user is doing, they're better off with an iPad these days.

    Intel Gen11 Reportedly Takes iGPU Performance to Another Level

    Yeah, we've seen the hype of that Iris Plus/ Iris Pro stuff before, and then it never makes it out to anything nearly affordable. I remember the Core i7 5775C. It sounded great: much faster integrated graphics, more efficient processor on a new production process, and eDRAM that would act like...

    Linux Gaming Is on a Life-Support System Called Steam

    Flat out, Linux doesn't have a decent gaming or a decent market share because it is hard to use. Sure, there have been improvements in the basic UI and usability, but there is ALWAYS something that has to be done from the command line, and that is EXACTLY what makes it hard to use. A gui...

    Vox Media Goes After YouTubers That Mocked The Verge PC Build Video

    I warned that would happen. I warned that companies would use DMCA to go after critics and competition through shutdown notices. I warned that government was overstepping its bounds with DMCA, and it would favor big corps with lots of lawyers. So may people told me I was overreacting. This...

    AMD vs NVIDIA Drivers....FIGHT!

    It could have been the way the driver installed, too. I have had DPC issues with nvidia drivers before where I just uninstalled the driver, used a driver cleaner to make sure everything was gone, and then reinstalled the exact same driver from the exact same files, and the issue went away...

    Your Privacy and Data are Different Things

    Sounds a lot like Hydra's little setup in The Winter Soldier, doesn't it? The movie is becoming more and more prophetic as the years go by. Well, except for the shield wielding superhero and giant flying carriers parts. We're on our own for preventing or fighting this, and it isn't going to...

    AI Creates a Deep Fake of Steve Buscemi's Face on Jennifer Lawrence's Body

    Wasn't there a scene in Johnny Mnemonic where a guy faked being some other character talking through a holographic phone using his hand?

    CBS Offers "Star Trek: Discovery" Season 2 Premiere for Free on YouTube

    True, but there would probably be tons of eyes rolling. Same basic effect. At least with that version, it wouldn't be making a political statement.

    AI Creates a Deep Fake of Steve Buscemi's Face on Jennifer Lawrence's Body

    Perhaps they'll give us a Wizard of Oz where Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner is every single character.

    CBS Offers "Star Trek: Discovery" Season 2 Premiere for Free on YouTube

    No, you don't get it. It isn't that a character might be a woman. I had no problems at all with the doctors in TNG, for example. It's the constant barrage of making note of being proud of getting to that level as a woman. It isn't that a character is gay. It's because it is constantly noted...

    Tesla Supercharger Sabotaged: The Latest in a Series of Weird Anti-Tesla Incidents

    FBI about these guys: "It got national attention and the FBI even called them a “top domestic terror threat.”" FBI doesn't even get involved in the green movement activists burning a Hummer, about 3-4 times the dollar value in damages. How is it the FBI isn't political?

    CBS Offers "Star Trek: Discovery" Season 2 Premiere for Free on YouTube

    That's not the preachy part about it. Just having a female lead isn't a big deal. I had no problems with Captain Janeway. I had no problems with Commander Ivanova in B5, either. Strong woman have been in strong positions for a long time, and that's just where they should be. Not to be...

    CBS Offers "Star Trek: Discovery" Season 2 Premiere for Free on YouTube

    You can catch a lot of clips on Youtube from various sources, mostly CBS, and believe me, they're the best STD has to offer.
