I've wanted to experiment with converting to ARM on desktop. This board looks like could be enough for me to do it. #arm #linux phoronix.com/scan.php?page=…

I don't think the Pi 4 has enough horsepower to be a real desktop replacement. I know the Pi 3 certainly did not. I am looking forward to giving a PineBook Pro a whirl too though :)

Horsepower?

"The Raspberry Pi 4 provides desktop performance comparable to entry-level x86 PC systems."

I know their claim. From what I've heard from people who have tried it that claim is borderline true. I also need more than "entry-level" speed for a desktop replacement for me. This board provides comparable to i7 performance which is what I'm looking for.



Health tracking was the biggest hole in my open data aspirations. Perhaps no more. It's going to need a lot of help with software though. Sounds like an interesting challenge to me #health #foss #linux



When I haven't tried to find #linux system details in a while I often do a @DuckDuckGo search to find it. This handy guide has it all in one place :)

I hate doing this, but @prep@share.naturalnews.com deserves a +1 on this one.

I don’t care what anyone says, THERE IS SO MUCH GARBAGE in a Linux install...
I would suggest trying a different distribution. I don't know what you've installed in the past that has so much shit in it, but I've been running/testing Linux for over dozen years and have never had that issue.



Today I decided to automate and expand my open source and fediverse software funding to my favorite and most used projects. Every little bit helps. #foss #fediverse #linux

For me currently it's Mozilla, Feneas and Matrix for monthly donations in the tech scene. For single projects I randomly throw small amounts based on the feeling of getting lots of value.

Donations are important! We should all be doing that whenever we can to ensure these projects have a future!



@Linux4Everyone I use MuseScore and Audacity quite a bit...




I always think that media production is the furthest behind for Linux. This is neat!



Happy birthday @debian :) #linux

Ah... good ol' Debian. This distribution had always been my second favorite (after Slackware) for many years. That ended when SystemD came around. :(

Just Slack. I haven't had time or the ummph to check out SystemD-free Devuan yet.



Interesting @geekbench result on my MBP. @virtualbox running @linuxmint scored higher than bare metal in many single core tests and in crypto and memory multicore. Didn't do too shabby with rest, but faster on any? VB processor affinity lock #linux better than #macos or other?



Getting started with AvalonStudio so can get full IntelliSense and other goodies developing #AvaloniaUI on #linux https://www.nequalsonelifestyle.com/2019/05/13/avalonstudio-getting-started/
#AvaloniaUI #linux programming



Mostly positive 1st impressions of #AvaloniaUI for #dotnet #linux development, with some paths forward #programming https://www.nequalsonelifestyle.com/2019/05/13/avalonia-first-impressions/



Write up of my positive experience with the #AvaloniaUI tutorial. Again hats off on true cross-platform desktop development with #dotnet on #linux https://www.nequalsonelifestyle.com/2019/05/10/avalonia-todo-tutorial/

A first step towards doing cross platform desktop development under #linux with #dotnet using #AvaloniaUI https://www.nequalsonelifestyle.com/2019/05/08/avalonia-hello-world/
#linux #dotnet #AvaloniaUI programming



Just finished the #AvaloniaUI tutorial solely under #linux #dotnetcore and leveraging #JetBrains Rider. Pretty pleased. Hope to get a blog write up out soon on experience and thoughts on the tech in general. Overall thumbs up!



Been a couple months since I got into a coding groove so going to try warming up by learning #AvaloniaUI under #linux using #JetBrains Rider preferably under #dotnetcore



The first interview of Linus Torvalds in the first issue of Linux Journal from 25 years ago too :) #linux https://www.linuxjournal.com/article/2736

Avalonia on Linux


I'm thinking of playing around with .NET thick client app dev on Linux for a cross-platform app. Any luck on doing Avalonia inside of JetBrains's Rider? #linux #dotnet #jetbrains http://avaloniaui.net/

Stardew Valley Escapism


I have the urge for a little escapism. Finally going to try Stardew Valley on #steam #linux thanks to recommendation from my friend Chet. As close to homesteading as I'll probably get :). https://www.stardewvalley.net/
#steam #linux games

Didn't the early warcraft series circa '96 require one to be a homesteader too? :-))

It's a fun game and definitely makes you want to prop up a little homestead near a small community somewhere.

@Stealth Hypothetically. Click-chopping virtual trees, breaking up rocks, and clearing brush makes me tired enough though so not sure about real life...who knows...maybe I have a Joel Salatin dimension in me I don't know about lol.
