I decided to check if #Linux gaming distros gave you an edge in terms of performance, compared to something #Ubuntu based, and of a specific gaming distro would perform better than another.

Since I had a @tuxedocomputers mini ITX desktop on hand to review, I decided to combine the two, so I checked whether gaming distros are better for gaming, with 4 game benchmarks I ran on the Atlas S:

@bamboombibbitybop @tuxedocomputers I played each game as it would be installed for most users, without any tweaks :)

AFAIK, Total War and Shadow of the Tomb Raider are from Feral and automatically use game mode if available :)

@yuukaze The goal was to compare things that are different, since you can use Proton GE on any distro, I should have used GE on all of them, so there wouldn’t have been any difference either :)

@PointNClick When you’re sitting on the couch, it blocks like 1cm of the entire height, which you don’t even notice :)

Today, I learned that diversity, equality and inclusivity is apparently a bad thing, and will kill a project? (From the comments under my latest news talking about ’s 5 year plan).

So, wanting people to feel comfortable contributing to a project is bad and woke now? Serisouly, what do they put in these people’s water? They’re going insane.

@jezebelkat They’re getting worse and worse, yeah

thelinuxEXP,
@thelinuxEXP@mastodon.social avatar

@AaronPajak Yeah, it’s insane

@AngryAnt Honestly, it makes me want to never look at comments anymore, but I feel I would also miss out on some interesting feedback…

thelinuxEXP,
@thelinuxEXP@mastodon.social avatar

@cerhnn No, GNOME is trying to find ways to make people contribute comfortably, no matter who they are, but some people seem to think I that’s a bad thing, somehow…

thelinuxEXP,
@thelinuxEXP@mastodon.social avatar

@cerhnn No problem :)

@chalex2020 But that’s not what is happening in most cases. No foundation or company worth its salt would hire or keep someone that’s not suited for a job.

thelinuxEXP,
@thelinuxEXP@mastodon.social avatar

@JollyDigital @AaronPajak Except this really has never been anything anyone serious or credible argued for, or has implemented. Anyone arguing for this is to be dismissed as readily as someone assuming diversity is a bad word :)

thelinuxEXP,
@thelinuxEXP@mastodon.social avatar

@chalex2020 Exczpt, again, that’s never happening. No company would do that. They’d keep looking for the right person with the right skills.

People who would force this kind of unsuited hire should be dismissed, just like people saying « the market regulates itself, let companies pick who’s the best person” should be dismissed, because they completely ignore the current biases.

Time for this week's #Linux and #OpenSource News! In this one, we have a terrible feature being added to #Windows, we have the # KDE #Plasma 6.1 beta, and a 5 year plan for #GNOME!

My latest game of was insanely fun! Took another Ork Dread Mob list, with a Stompa, against Tyranids, and it ended on a perfect draw, 75 VP each.

What matters is that a Killa Kan exploded and took out a Pyrovore, which exploded and killed a Neurotyrant that was on 1HP, and then the Stompa with 1HP charged a Hive Tyrant, killed it, then the tyrant exploded in death, killing the Stompa, which exploded and thus killed my Mek, a Deff Dread, plus DeathLeaper, and a BroodLord. Awesome!

thelinuxEXP,
@thelinuxEXP@mastodon.social avatar

@hikariknight That was absolutely random and fun, yeah! I would probably have won the game handily without that explosion, but the fact it happened (by rolling a 6 on a 6 sided dice) made the game a lot more fun!

@Aaron @techcelt This might be another specific survey in the future :)

@thelinuxEXP@mastodon.social avatar

I'm doing another one of my little surveys, this time to see which parts of using on the desktop are the most problematic, and the various issues people are having.

I'll make a video on these results next week, and depending on the answers, maybe I'll make more videos on specific issues, either to explain these topics, or to see how we could improve.

So, here is the form, feel free to fill it out and share it around, so we have as many answers as possible!

@eclipseo I’m pretty sure I have the option in one of the questions?

@delopa Woods, that’s one my nice Patrons and members didn’t notice either 😂

@hopfgeist Because a window manager could just be Kwin in KDE or Mutter on GNOME. A Tiling WM generally doesn’t come with a desktop environment attached :)
