Android Leftovers

GPD Micro PC: Can a 6-inch Ubuntu Laptop Really Be Usable?

It’s not that GPD, a China-based hardware outfit, aren’t skilled at creating diminutive devices that appeal to gadget heads like myself as, clearly they are: both the GPD Win 2 and the GPD Pocket 2 were warmly reviewed by many. It’s just that I thought that a laptop this small simply wouldn’t be usable. 6-inch screen? What a squint fest! Blackberry phone-style keyboard? Typo city! Intel Celeron processor?

'No Man's Sky Beyond' Just Got Patched For Linux, Even Though It's A Windows-Only PC Game

Yep, it's right there in the notes for Beyond Patch 2.08a: "Fixed Steam VR in Linux." The game was recently treated to a massive update which makes it almost resemble an MMO. There are new social hubs, 16-32 player multiplayer, the addition of virtual reality, Vulkan API support and quite a bit more of everything. As you probably know, Hello Games is a fairly small indie game studio, and it never developed a native Linux version of No Man's Sky. But that's OK, because the game proudly bears a "Gold" rating on ProtonDB, a website that tracks Steam Play compatibility with Windows games. Because Proton translates Windows-exclusive game APIs like DirectX to Vulkan (an API that Linux understands), this allows thousands of games that never appeared on Linux to work anyway, simply by installing it on the Steam for Linux client. Proton also has support for SteamVR, meaning many VR titles also run well. Read more Also: Zombie apocalypse action RPG Zombasite has a big update and a big sale to match
