    Default Talking Linux Hardware Support, Phoronix History

    Phoronix: Talking Linux Hardware Support, Phoronix History

    For those interested in more of my personal views on Linux hardware support, good Linux-compatible hardware, and other open-source/hardware/benchmarking related topics, earlier this week I was on the Everyday Linux podcast talking about such Phoronix topics...

    These podcasts drag us back to 2006-2007 crappy video quality.

    Always nice to see/hear Michael speaking. It might be me but his workplace looks a bit more sane and organised and Michael more refreshed than from what I remember.

    haha I think it's because it was too dark so you couldn't see the pile of GPUs and test equipment behind him.

    But I agree that it's nice to hear him speak once in a while. The funny thing is he's actually a pretty fast speaker and can actually get a complicated point across in a short amount of time.

    I think it was apparent those other guys didn't seem to be frequent readers of phoronix, as a lot of the things they didn't understand would've made more sense otherwise. I understood almost everything Michael was talking about, and that's mostly because I check out the website every day.

    I liked how Michael nailed it when they asked him what's Linux good for on the desktop.

    Maybe I should also get a Mac.

    He didn't use words. He couldn't find any. That is somewhere in the first 15-20 minutes. I'll find the exact spot in the video later.

    BTW, Phoronix podcasts should be starting up by end of the month.

    curaga can't/don't want to watch videos in his browser

    I think you are talking about the question at 14:55 where michael is asked if there's a place where linux is a better choice considering the desktop and michael says 'uhm' and then there's a few seconds silence.
