These guys are great if you need a laptop that's 100% compatible (which is getting more and more difficult every year).

@fuxoft I use Slimbook (AMD Ryzen) and can recommend it.

@fuxoft
Wait a minute.... Modern laptops can be incompatibke with Linux? :blobscream:

@LukeAlmighty @fuxoft if you're on newer hardwares, it takes time to get stuff to werk unless you use a distro that comes with 1500 packages by default (talking about YOU, ubuntu) and despite that, the system would still be pretty unstable.

@LukeAlmighty Unfortunately, it gets worse and worse every year. You can buy two laptops with exactly same model number, one of them works perfectly and the second one has WiFi or Bluetooth that cannot be made to work in Linux. Why? Because the fuckers changed the hardware in the middle of the manufacturing run and didn't tell anyone. So if you say "My Toshiba ABCXYZ runs Linux perfectly", it means shit today.

@fuxoft @LukeAlmighty that's true now with chip shortage. We work closely with Linux teams in Dell and Lenovo and they are pretty unhappy about it because they put whatever wifi adapter they manage to get into their laptops now.
But other than that the situation has improved greatly. Both Dell and Lenovo now have a policy that their suppliers have to ensure support in mainline Linux for 5 years to be accepted in the supply chain.

@g @fuxoft @LukeAlmighty No nevím, koukl jsem na první Téčko které na mě na vyskočilo z vyhledávače a má to Nvidia grafiku... Už jen to značí problémy s Linuxem...

@g @fuxoft @LukeAlmighty Teda a koukám na ty Tuxedo a to má všechno taky Nvidia grafiku. To vám jako jede Nvidia normálně? U mě co verze driveru to jiný problém.

@stepan @g @LukeAlmighty Tak k tomu musím říct, že mě subjektivně výkon GPU v mém počítači nezajímá a 3rd party drivery nepoužívám.

@stepan @LukeAlmighty S ovladačem grafiky jsem nikdy neměl problém, standardní v X umí potřebnou akceleraci vč. videa, na hry mám extra box s Widlemi 😀 Potíže jsem měl jen jednou s combo WiFi-BT, a na něco podobného asi narazil @fuxoft, kde běželo jen WiFi a obojí vyžadovalo aktualizaci ve firmware balíčku, což znamenalo pár týdnů čekání...žádná hrůza.

Velkým plusem je podpora fwupd/lvfs.

Jen je škoda, že původní kastle s lampičkou a příjemnou klávesnicí jsou už minulostí...

@g @stepan @fuxoft
Do you believe that release of Steam deck could long term change the availability of drivers?

@fuxoft I hope they still will be in business when my current laptop becomes obsolete.

@fuxoft Thanks for the kind words! Giving a motivation boost! ✌️
