Good enough and cost effective is the new Apple informal slogan LOL Entry line Pro Mac 8G RAM - same amount as in 20USD 15 years old used thinkpads LOL Cause you "don't need more" LOL USB2 in 2023 LOL Seriously, they should be taxed just for slowing computer tech progress. Chinese smartphone has more innovations in it than high end macbook LOL
    ahha yes indeed apple haas only created one innovation !! you see, they have ONLY innovated one single innovated. the problem !! htough is that that one innovication hsa many invociations before it!! whic h help to build up to theis single (1, uno, singular) inmnovation!

    chineses smartwholes however have many !! such risc-y innovations adn are clearly dominance in the marked!!!!! i onyl buy lemote like richard stallman !!

    This is the way of Linux. If it can't run Linux, then someone will find a way to make it run Linux. This is also Apple so the moment someone does get Linux running then Apple will immediately patch iOS to prevent it. Lets be honest here, any Linux distro would be an upgrade over iPadOS. What does Apple expect people to do with an M4 running iPadOS? Linux would also be infinitely more secure than anything Apple has with iOS. Look at the zero-click, zero-day exploits Apple has been dealing with. Triangulation, Checkm8, and now "EndofDays" which was made by an Israeli company called QuaDream which uses invisible iCloud calendar invites. Triangulation uses a mixture of exploits like iMessage and Safari. What part of iOS is actually secure? The scary thing is that Apple knew something was up, but for years they couldn't figure it out, but an exploit to Jailbreak your Apple device will certainly be patched tomorrow, if found today. ‚ÄčEven something as simple as a web browser on iPadOS is not easy. Everything is Webkit, like it or not.

    You would think MacOS would be better on these new iPads, and you'd be right. Except that I'd still rather use Linux. The MacOS UI doesn't have as many features as Linux UI's or even Windows. You're not going to tell me that Mac's UI is better than KDE Plasma. Getting software is still just as bad on MacOS as it is on Windows. On Linux it's mostly through the repository or Flatpak. Screw Snap. On MacOS you're still dealing with .dmg files. It's also inherently less secure. Coding on MacOS is a nightmare and there's no Vulkan.

    Maybe, but even with the current project, you need an older device. So I'm guessing it's gonna take at least some years for the M4 iPad Pro as well, unless they find some kind of (unpatchable) exploit.

    Linux on the iPad isn't a reality yet, at least not like on a desktop platform. With hardware becoming more and more powerful every year, obsolete iPadsshould be allowed to continue to serve a purpose. Obsolete iPads could be affordable personal computers and useful for project builds. We believe Linux is the key to bring new life to these devices.


    Don't worry, if someone makes a great piece of hardware someone else will want to cripple it with Linux.

    Did you know Linux claims he was offered 100M for his channel and he turned it down?

    If someone offered me 100M they wouldn't have a chance to finish their sentence before I had signed the agreement.

    ProRes is Apple's software and they never ported it to anything but Apple devices. You have alternatives on Windows though I don't know about Linux. Anything Apple can do, you can do more on PC and better, at 1/4 the price.
    ProRes is supported on Windows and Linux, and i use it all the time, but I have heard of people having issues with ProRes produced by ffmpeg, though I have not had any issue; i have had issues with DNxHR produced by ffmpeg on Linux.

    Here's the thing with ProRes, many high end digital cameras record both RAW and ProRes at the same time and there are good reasons for doing so:

    Codecs don't need to be hard. Really. This mega-post explains everything you need to know in order to choose the right codec for every project.


    If you plan on working in movie or tv production professionally, you can not escape ProRes, so you might as well have at least one Mac in your production pipeline.

    Once you make the decision to have at least one Mac then you may as well simplify your life and do everything with Macs.

    That right there is the biggest problem with many Linux users, it's a statement not a tool to get the job done.

    I personally don't make statements with the tools I use, I use whatever I feel is the right tool for the job.

    Minor problem, both will not get you to the stars, the first class professional trip has a great chance of getting you the stars, in the DIY you will become like star dust as it blows up.

    Davinci Resolve is industry standard, and generally performs better on Mac even when compared to Final Cut. Davinci Resolve even supports ProRes on Windows and Linux. The alternative to ProRes is DNxHR, which matches the quality and file size equally to ProRes. None of Apple's exclusive features are of any interest to Linux users. Apple isn't exactly great at contributing to the open source community, though they are good at taking from it.
    I beg to differ, I am a Linux user and use it more often than Windows but I would love to have hardware accelerated ProRes encode and decode, a Mac exclusive feature.
