157: Linux’s Windows 11 Opportunity, Rocky Linux 8.4, Blender Paid Support | This Week in Linux

On this episode of This Week in Linux, we’ve got Distro News from the team at Rocky Linux with their announcement of the 8.4 stable release and also from the Debian team with Debian 10.10. In App News, Canonical has announced a new LTS Support service for the application Blender. Plus we’ll check out the latest release of KMyMoney. NVIDIA announced availability of the 470 Drivers with DLSS Support in Proton and we’ll talk about what that means. Later in the show, we’re bringing back the Lightning Round of topics that we tested out in a previous episode and so much more including something that may hurt your wallets with the Steam Summer Sale. All that and much more on Your Weekly Source for Linux GNews!

  1. Thanks, @MichaelTunnell, really enjoyed this as usual! Favourite joke of the week: “The Steam Summer Sale is necessary, people…!” :laughing:

    I’ve never tried KMyMoney. I used to use Quicken many years ago, then tried GnuCash for a while but really didn’t like that it didn’t encrypt records and that had to be done separately. I might just try KMyMoney to help me get out of my sticky financial situation if it has built-in privacy features.

    I agree Windows 11 hardware requirements sound like an own-goal. I hope our community does capitalise. I am also very keenly awaiting Debian 11 but unsure about the DUR idea.

    Rocky Linux release, Canonical support for Blender, ODF 1.3 and Beta for new PostgreSQL all sound good to me!

  2. You know what could be cool? A list of games that incorporates both ProtonDB (platinum and gold only - with an option to toggle silver rating as well) and Steam Linux native games.

    Maybe incorporate sale info as well if you could get it on Steam, Itch.io and maybe GOG as well (no Linux native client but DRM free seems seems to warrant an honorable mention).
