Reddit: What is the future of the linux desktop?

Monday 9th of April 2018 08:02:16 PM

I'm wondering how you see the linux desktop develop over the course of a few years. Is Wayland going to take over X? Are there any projects you know of that might change the linux desktop as we know it in the course of a few years? Will elementary OS take over Ubuntu as the go to distro for newcomers? Are Arch users ever going to shut up about Arch?

Reddit: Staying on reddit page when pc is idle uses some amount of CPU resources

Monday 9th of April 2018 07:00:47 PM

I wonder if anyone notices this, when you load a reddit page (whether it's the front page or a subreddit) and you check CPU usage in top in CLI, even though it's idle, it still uses some amount of CPU resources.

This will go away when I shift focus to a new tab.

This does not happen on other websites though. I am on latest firefox version by the way. I wonder only linux has this, or firefox only.

Reddit: Need help choosing USB Bluetooth dongle for bluetooth headset

Monday 9th of April 2018 06:42:32 PM

So I helped my dad switch to linux from windows 8 on his Asus x205TA. Got everything working fine except for the bluetooth. It doesn't work whatever I do. My dad's main use of the laptop is watching videos using bluetooth headset. I was wondering if I could purchase a bluetooth usb dongle but not sure if every model can support audio profile for headset. Any suggestions? I can spend upto 6$ for it.

Reddit: Less optimized wifi?

Monday 9th of April 2018 06:08:23 PM

I run unbuntu on my laptop (asus zenbook UX305FA) for productivity (no games to distract, terminal) and for the most part it's everything I expected and more. (Was told to expect worse battery life due to lack of optimization, found better battery life due to lack of bloat) anyway the only problem has been wifi conmectivity. It's just overall not useful.

Is there any way to get different software thats better for wifi connectivity?
