Why do you guys set up entire virtual machines for small tasks (like hosting a plex server) when you could just host a docker container and call it a day?

It's one solution (of many) to the problem of dependency management.

Let's say you wrote a webapp in python and it depends on version 4 of some library. But your distro only packages version 3, and versions 3 and 4 are pretty incompatible. Well here's some options:

Make a package of version 4, install it, overwrite version 3, cross your fingers that some other package isn't relying on version 3.

Make a version that can be installed side-by-side with version 3.

Make a virtualenv or whatever and install it in that.

Install it to some non-standard directory and figure out the right environment variables to use that directory. (Basically what virtualenv does).

Write out a dockerfile where you can just do whatever you want because instead of making your app work in a particular system, you're building a particular system to work with your app.

Exactly!

Oh... wait, you actually thought that was a bad thing. How's that self-made compiler coming?

Since it's extremely difficult to buy an AMD 6000-series card or a NVidia 3000-series card, let's talk about whether or not the 5700xt is a good value and how much lifespan it has left.

>Performance comparable to a 2080
>144+ fps at 1080p
>90+ fps at 1440p
>50-70 fps at 4k
>$300-350 used
>$400 new
>will hold it's value until it becomes easy to buy newer cards for MSRP.

5700xt was 370 new all year long. Its now 400+. No rt. No dlss. No cuda. Hot. Actual worth = 300

3060ti (2080 super) drops sometime next week for 400. If you can buy it, (you cant) get that.

How much would it cost to build a mini-itx pc that can compete with the M1 macs? I'm considering going Hackintosh or getting the M1.

I don't know, probably
$160 CPU
$100 MB
$100 RAM
$200 SSD
$200 GPU
$100 case and power supply...

would be probably much faster than the mac mini and is upgradable.

OGA is not great, I would get the clone version which has a better screen and controls.

Mister is a hobby project more than anything. I do enjoy hooking it up to my old CRT to play games, way easier than any other solution I could think of.

THIS.

>>78938552
Several things hit AMD overall but the major ones are bad engineering decisions and Global Foundries. AMD wanted to push the x86 market into the direction they wanted for their hardware, problem is that programmers are lazy and don't like to do everything different to what they currently know.
The other side of the coin is that Global Foundries nodes fucking suck as shown by Zen competitive using a samsung node for Zen1 and TSMC nodes for everything after that. Global Foundries was constantly in the same shit that intel is in right now under-performing nodes delivered late.
