The Open Source Summit was held this week in Japan.  The Linux Foundation has been pretty quick to post the videos on YouTube but currently in very long, everything-that-happened-in-this-room-that-day format.  I fished this clip out and converted it to av1/opus in a webm media container. If you can't play that, use something that is compatible with those codecs/container format.

What Linux distro do you use?  Ever find yourself needing or wanting to use a different distro or application from a different distro?  distrobox is a front-end for podman (or docker) that makes it quick and easy to install any of many different mainstream Linux distros.  What makes distrobox interesting is that it automatically integrates with your host desktop with regards to your user home directory and graphical applications.  Easily run graphical applications from most any distro.  Enjoy!

I need to give this one (the work-in-progress Sega Saturn core) a try but so far I haven't.  Looks pretty darn good.  I'm sure there is still a lot of work left but the progress made thus far looks very promising.  I've been subscribed to the developer's patreon (<a href="">Srg320</a>) for well over a year and I hope he is making a reasonable living from all of the work he has put in.  He has made a number of impressive cores for the MiSTer FPGA.  Big thanks to Video Game Esoterica putting the video together.  He does good work too.  Enjoy!
