  • I wonder about their firmware. Will it be a bog standard UEFI from insyde/ami/phoenix, or will it be coreboot? Will it support firmware updates via LVFS? It'll be interesting to see what they do.

    • Can we stop with the DE wars please? Everyone already knows that KDE and Qt are better. It's used in the Steam Deck (a new portable by Valve).

      • I really just assumed it was still ubuntu base, but then I read on and Steam Deck b liek, "I use arch, BTW"

        Very pleasantly surprised to see they rebased on arch for this. It makes so much sense, and will ease the hardware and the desktop environment for them, least from my experience, and make it a lot more interesting for anyone who does get curious and starts playing around. I expect this will get a lot of windows kids poking around the linux ecosystem

          no it cannot be.

          but they say it's ...
          16:10.

          ...

          Impossible. For gaming. Where people use 21:9 or worse. And this thing is 16:10.
          And I can't get 16:10 monitors for work.

          The world is broken.

          (but nice device, Valve!)
          TwT So much this. Oh how I miss my 16:10, and even games felt more open on it

              openSUSE doesn't have a default DE.

                KDE is the first option, even before GNOME.

                  And yet, nothing is preselected.

                    it can't help. non-rolling fedora always has newest kernel drivers.

                      Yes but its less supported than Arch (which is rolling by default), Arch gets more testing for its default distribution.
