There is a new (to me) commercial remoting protocol named Nice DCV. If using Amazon's AWS for hosting your graphical workstation, Nice DCV is free... but if you want to run it on your on-premise physical or virtual system, it requires a commercial license. Supposedly Nice DCV is very performant and is being used for cloud hosted graphics workstations used by artists working for CGI production companies.
I've not used AWS before but now I'm going to have to look into it. I don't expect a graphical workstation VM in AWS to be cheap but I definitely would like to try it out to see how well it works... and I'm once I learn more about it, I'd like to see how much the commercial Nice DCV costs.
The RHEL podcasting folks have a nice presentation showing this stuff and explaining how RHEL (and clones) are great OS choices for remote workstations.
Here's the recording from the recent Linux Plumber's Conference of Linus' conversation with Dirk Hohndel, who for a few years now seems to be the Linus rangler. :) Enjoy
Here's Jon Corbet's very recent Linux Kernel Report from the recent LinuxCon OSS EU 2022:
"New Retro Adventures" on YouTube has been doing a fantastic job of keeping up with the development progress on the Sega Saturn core... and his video production value is quite high. Enjoy his most recent games analysis.
As predicted, RHEL9 was released today... as was RHEL 8.6 and Fedora 36. Big release day. Here's a marketing video on the new release. I'm sure more videos, some with actual technical content, will follow.
UPDATE: But not really. They announced today and in the announcement they said, "in the coming weeks". But during their first day Red Hat Summit keynote, Mike McGrath said it would be out "next week". I'm going with the later although we'll just have to wait and see.
I haven't really seen anyone mention that RHEL 8.6 was released but logging into my Red Hat account and checking the available download media, 8.6 iso were posted today. When last I checked (late in the day), the 8.6 docs hadn't been posted yet and the 8.6 Beta docs were still listed. I'd expect that to be resolved by tomorrow.
AlmaLinux 9 Beta came out yesterday... so I decided to record a screencast showing installing it, post install first-boot... and adding additional repos, software and even use KVM with KVM... and I can report that nested-KVM is working fine.
YouTube entity My Life in Gaming has come out with a comprehensive/long video covering the MiSTer FPGA and how it is had a major impact in the retro gaming industry. Enjoy!
The video is over 2.5 hours but luckily they do have an index for skipping over and directly accessing whatever might interest you the most.
On Feb. 28th the Raspberry Pi turned 10 years old. Here's a video from the Raspberry Pi Project to commemorate that milestone. Enjoy
