RetroBytes put together quite the complete / lengthy history of X11. I've been using KDE Plasma on Wayland for a while but X11 is going to remain for some time to come. Enjoy!
The YouTube ExplainingComputers guy just came out with a Linux End-User Manifesto. He basically makes an argument for how Linux users can better advocate for wider adoption. Enjoy!
Video Game Esoterica put together a 2023 year in review video. I don't think I would have selected any different than he did. Enjoy!
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.

Work on this is moving at breakneck speed. Here's a video showing a recent build but they are coming fast so it'll likely be outdated real soon... but what's there is pretty impressive. 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="https://discord.com/channels/647909397477195803/806644464834969640/1047355308210671666">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!
I ran into this presentation recently on YouTube and I really enjoyed it... talking about the history of UNIX. Did anyone besides me use a teletype system? That's what Memphis State University had circa 1983. Enjoy!
Bob from RetroRGB interviewed MiSTer FPGA script author Wizzo . I haven't tried any of the scripts yet but man do they sound handy / useful. I'll have to give several of them a try ASAP. Enjoy!
What scripts are there? Lots of really useful ones. Check them out here.
KDE Plasma 6 is getting worked on although if I understand correctly they still have about half a year to work on it before its initial release. Here's a video showing what features and changes they have come up with so far. Enjoy!
Artemio Urbina talks to Martin Donlon (aka Wickerwaka) about the MiSTer FPGA, Irem M92 (and M72) Arcade hardware, how video is handled in arcade boards, how MDfourier was used to check audio by him for the core, how M.A.M.E. helps during development and much, much more. Enjoy!
