Linux 5.3.xx ? NO. TOO OLD
Linux 5.4 rcx ? NO. Better but still not perfect.
Linux Next ? NO. Still not it.
Linux Next + manually merging GPU and other stuff i need manually ? PERFECTION

    There's bleeding edge, and then there's @haxk20 being a cliff hanger.

    There are people at the edge and there is @Haxk20 leaning forward to get a better feeling of the edge.

    @devTea I mean im suprised nobody memed the shit i post like a year ago already.
  • 4
    @Haxk20 Maybe it does, but it's just too afraid to show it to you.

    Also, we are meming you but it's on a secondary platform called "haxkRant".
  • 7
    That's why I like you, my friend. This (living not just at the edge, but also own everything around it) makes you special.

    I realize that this sounds gay. Thus I feel the need to mention that I'm straight.

    @-ANGRY-CLIENT- I wasn't questioning it, but since you brought it up......

    @-ANGRY-CLIENT- Im honored to hear this. Like WOW. I must say this made my day for sure.

    And yeah im straight too.
  • 2
    @Jilano Ohhhhh i see. Hmmm i need to get onto that "haxkRant" I will be a spy there.
  • 2
    @-ANGRY-CLIENT- And i do not exactly own it. I mean if merge confict were to occur and if it was a big one i would have no damn clue what to do.

    @C0D4 @-ANGRY-CLIENT- didn't say "No homo" so he's gay now.

    @Haxk20 You can't, invite only!

    @Jilano How fucking dare you not invite me to community about me ? HOW RUDE LUL
  • 5
    @Jilano man, we had something nice, somewhere without @Haxk20 and yet full of him at the same time 😞

    Guess we'll have to find a new HaxkRant, or maybe a JilanoRant 🤔

    @Haxk20 I’m still over here chillin on 4.9 lol

    @Plasticnova Ouch. That just hurts me inside. Kernel before 5.0 in 2019 ? I think you are the crazy one here.
  • 2
    @Haxk20 debian way, slow and steady. Still on stretch for now, though not sure what version buster is on. Don’t think it’s 5 yet though

    @Plasticnova GOD. Thats horrible to hear even.

    Oh and everyone before you ask whats broken. Wifi is. Firmware crashes. Im sure devs will get it fixed in 2 days.
  • 1
    @Haxk20 meh, it’s all good. It’s the Linux kernel we’re talking about here, it’s as steady as a (monolithic) rock
  • 1
    @Haxk20 :D

    @C0D4 Not to worry, he'll probably forget about it when its next kernel panic will give him yet again another brain lag.

    Just use an OS which already has everything out of box. Like, let’s say, Windows.
    There is NOT one thing you can do on Linux I can’t on windows.
    But there are some things I can do on Windows which you’ll never be able to do on Linux.
    I get it, it’s free, it’s fun (relative). You can do crazy things. But personally when I come home and press “power”(Well, move mouse a little) I want my system be up to date and running smoothly without the need to manually merge last graphic stack and recompile CEDEGA (Or whatever last iteration is called) before lunching a game.

    And FYI, my home PC was upgraded to windows 8 day 1 of release, running win 10 now and I had a blue screen may be twice in past 7 years.

    I only see 3 reasons to use linux:
    Have fun with manual config of the system.
    Being concerned about privacy and telemetry collection.
    Having a very small footprint micro server for something. (Next windows server release comes without gui btw : 200 MB footprint)

    @NoToJavaScript First of all. This is me. That doesnt mean you have to build GPU drivers before game. 99% of linux users wont. i do it because i like it. Steam and users and devs of linux distros made it very easy to game on linux in last years. Really. Press and play.

    And what i can do on linux and not on windows ? MANY things.

    One thing for me is really impossible to do on windows.

    Android ROM development. IMPOSSIBLE to do on windows. Yeah you can but you have to use linux on windows subsystem which is basically linux at this point under windows so you are again using linux to do it.

    Also you cant exactly modify your windows OS to your liking. I had issue with GPU overclocking. On windows they are unable to overclock because vBIOS. On linux i modified kernel and disabled the check and boom. Overclocked GPU. Sure i had to be careful when OCing it but i could do it.

    And as many linux users would say. There are much more things you can on linux and cant on windows.

    @NoToJavaScript Its just YOU that you dont find the need for those things.

    @Haxk20 For Android ROM dev: Well, it’s basically like using WINE but “LINE” in this case (Trademark pending). I can get behind this usage. And even there I only partially agree: using Linux subsystem from windows is different from using Linux.

    For overclocking, I apply a different policy: Add extra 150$ when buying a video card. I didn’t feel the need to overclock something for the past 10+ years. Maybe for you it gives that extra 10-15% lost FPS when running not native Linux games. (On this note, I looked at steam and there are more native Linux games then I expected. Good)

    And, I needed a small DNS server for our company. BIND + Webmin gives me better GUI than windows server DNS GUI.
    But it took 3 hours to setup. Basicllk : LONG setup, very friendly usage vs Windows instant setup and tedious usage.

    @NoToJavaScript This is laptop mind you. And i really want to see you compile AOSP10 on windows without using linux subsystem.

    And yes there is a ton new native games so yeah. Shadow of the tomb raider. Thats what im waiting for now. Looks really good.

    And mind you that we dont loose 10-15% when non native. Its more like Either you gain 5-10% or you lose 5-10%. Most of the time its near 0% so its pretty OK. But you need new GPU drivers and shit for that kind of performance. (Which is mainly why i run that.)

    And yes. Industry shit is always better on Linux. No doubt about that.

    @Haxk20 I bought a 4.000 euros custom laptop in 2009. It has a desktop Core I7 – 940, 8GB ram, GTX 280M, SSD 256 and blue ray reader/writer (was never used in “write” mode) Total run time on batterie: 20 minutes. And the best: Custom Wi Fi chip. 1080p glance screen and optical sound output. All of that for only 4.5kg (!!).
    I put Linux on it :) It took me about 2 days to make graphic card work properly. Took about 1 more day for Wi fi (Thank god, there was some driver from unknown man for this chipset. Naturally all “bling bling” features of the card weren’t working).
    The only thing I could never do : Read a blue-ray fiolm on linux and output via optical. Games were fine (cedega/wine, hnever made sound working in warcraft 3)

    @Haxk20 I had so much fun with this laptop: Back in a day I was in last year for my developer degree. So the last project I did for school:
    Language/plateforme :C#, .Net WEBFORMS
    SQL : MySQL
    Platform : Linux (Mind it, mono was good, but not complete yet)
    Server: Apache ! (Yep, that was fun to do : Make .Net solution work on apache server with MySQL)
    Mobile app : Windows 6.5 mobile with OpenGL

    @NoToJavaScript Dude you are comparing 2009 to 2019. Linux has come a loooong way.

    @Haxk20 How is touch support ?
    I have a surface pro I don’t use, could be fun experience

    Edit : Yes, it's possible to disable secure boot

    Edit 2: To be fair, most people still think Windows XP/7 when talking about Windows too

    @NoToJavaScript gnome and touch is love. really use only gnome for touch.
  • 1
    @Haxk20 Ok, new pet project : Put a linux on surface pro ! Amd make Microsoft Office work. (Last time I checked it worked well with wine, not sure now with all this office 365 integration)
  • 0
    @NoToJavaScript Not just any linux. make it hard. how bout gentoo or arch ? ubuntu is not an option.
  • 1
    @Haxk20 Haha ! It’s the only one I know with support for “vendor” drivers out of box :) If not I kind of liked Fedora back in a day (Don’t know if it still exist).
    Go for gentoo.
    And BTW, just read on their web site : AArch64 (arm64) profiles are now stable!
    Soooooooooo, I have another device at home. Sureface RT (Yep the first gen ARM one). But honestly I wouldn’t even know where to start here.
