    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.

                    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.

                      It's available on YouTube. That's how I watched it on my nexus 7.

                      A bit to long, though. I'm not used to watching podcasts that are longer that one hour.

                          It's a matter of principle. I don't listen to podcasts either.

                          They both waste valuable time compared to plain text.

                            I was only mocking you
                            I'm with you regarding podcasts. I only watched the 5 minutes to see what michael said.
                            So be a little grateful that I broke my principles to give an explanation on what happened there
