  1. You can install it now if you want to, it's very stable. All you have to do is opt into the windows insider program which you can do from the settings menu. It's really simple.
  2. It's been available in beta for a while. I have it installed and I think a few other people from here do as well. It's pretty much exactly the same as 10 with some minor visual upgrades. I haven't had any issues.
  3. Linux will never replace windows for th simple reason that an open source OS will never have the proper backing to be as good of a consumer OS as windows. Aside from being occasionally used to push specific hardware from valve it's just not relevant to 99% of gamers. Linux may make some big strides, but it will never be on parity with windows in terms of gaming performance. People who hate windows enough to play a much more limited number of games may see a lot of improvements in Linux but that's a very small minority. As long as windows is even just ten percent better, that's enough to make it an easy choice for gamers. Linux would have to actually be better than windows for gamers to switch and that's just not going to happen.
  4. Now I'm within $20 of where I was before this all started. Man, would have been a good time to buy the dip for sure but I didn't take any action on it.
  5. I'm sure the person behind the chat is just some low wage call center worker who has no information about why miners are getting cards so successfully. I don't think interrogating them about it is going to help anything. I suspect miners are getting cards hand over foot through somewhat unscrupulous means a lot of the time. The cash of a gamer spends just as well as the cash from a miner so don't see why AMD would give preferential treatment to anyone and infact having checked their site quite a few times over the months I've seen them implement new steps to try to stop bots from buying cards. How well it has worked is debatable, but I see no wrong doing from AMD here. Last time I checked amd.com a week or two ago I saw the chat and I asked them if they knew when the next best time to check back would be and they said Thursday mornings 7AM pacific time and I thought it was cool that they're willing to share that instead of just telling people to "check back soon" or something.
  6. Seagate is working on 30TB HDDs, 50 TB in 5 years and 100 TB by 2030 (guru3d.com) I remember hearing about graphene being holy grail of tech all the time when I was younger. Cool to see it making it's way into something tangible.
  7. Intel Core i9-12900K spotted scoring more than 30000 points in Cinebench R23 (guru3d.com) I saw some other articles about this claiming much higher gains in some pretty obscure situations but they seemed either too good to be true or not representative of average performance at all so I didn't pay much attention to them, but this seem pretty realistic. I think I will be pretty comfortable with me 3700x for a long time, but it will be interesting to see how the DDR5 era kicks off.
  8. I've thought the same thing, that would be awesome. Good thing there's plenty of legal states to travel too now too haha.
  9. I thought about selling; I think there was a good amount of uncertainty on Monday about the situation and it could have easily been a two or three day event instead of just a one day event. Things could still be a bit rocky going forward. Ideally though, stop limits are for this kind of situation exactly and anyone who had some good stop limits setup before Monday would have had their stock sell before it went down much and then they would want to buy back in at the end of the day or the next day to just skip over the losses. I have been lazy about setting up stop limits and I'm kicking myself a little about it now haha.
  10. Looks like it was pretty short lived. After this morning I've gotten a out 70% of the recent losses back.
  11. Elon Musk: SpaceX Starlink service will go live next month WWW.TECHSPOT.COM SpaceX CEO Elon Musk is confident the Starlink satellite internet service will be going live as soon as next month. This would be two months later than... Looking forward to seeing how this all goes down when it goes live.
  12. Looks like you we're right about that, but probably not for all of the same reasons you would have guessed at the time.
  13. TSLA, NVDA, AAPL, NIO: Why Is the Stock Market Down Today? INVESTORPLACE.COM The stock market isn't doing so hot and investors need only look at some of the biggest names to understand why shares are down today. I was thinking about putting more money in recently, good thing I didn't do it yet. If this lasts for a while I suppose I'll probably try to "buy the dip" at some point. Not great news but not super surprising with some of the recent runs. Personally I wouldn't be sad if crypto tanked, but I'd feel bad for those who are heavily invested in it.
