What is OBS MultiPlatform?

OBS MultiPlatform is a complete rewrite of the original OBS from the ground up, with the main goals of course being multiplatform support, a more thorough feature set, and a much more powerful API. A very early and simple release is currently available for Mac.

OBS MultiPlatform will eventually support many of the advanced requested features not present in the original OBS, such as multiple stream outputs and scene previewing. It does not have these features in this release.


Runs Linux

My Media Center Runs LInux

I took an old 1940s (I think) record player/radio unit from my Dad’s antique shop and modified it to suit my needs. I removed all of the (broken) internal components, fixed it up, painted it, and turned it into a base for my music and entertainment centre.

Linux on a USB Stick for Students

Lernstick is a mobile and secure learning and working environment for school and home that is usually installed on removable media (USB sticks, USB hard disks, SD cards, etc.) so that (almost*) any computer can be booted from these storage media. A hard drive with an installed operation system is no longer necessary. (But optionally, the system can also be installed on internal hard drives.)

GNU dmd

GNU dmd is a “Daemon managing Daemons” (or “Daemons-managing Daemon”?), i.e. a service manager that provides a replacement for the service-managing capabilities of SysV-init (or any other init) with a both powerful and beautiful dependency-based system with a convenient interface. It is intended for use on GNU/Hurd, but it is supposed to work on every POSIX-like system where Guile is available. In particular, it has been tested on GNU/Linux

It’s Been Three Years Since The Big Steam Linux Reveal

Fast forward three years, there’s now more than 1,100 games on Steam for Linux!

Going out this year there’s Source 2 to look forward to seeing, Steam Machines and the Steam Controller expected for release before year end, and SteamOS should be stabilized. There’s also going to be the release of the open-source Intel Vulkan driver financed by Valve for as soon as the Khronos Group releases the first official Vulkan specification.

Scientists Use Ubuntu to Interpret Hubble Telescope Data

The Hubble space telescope is now in the news because it celebrates 25 years since its launch and that is an amazing achievement, especially if we keep in mind that it was launched with a flaw that could have turned it into space junk.

Endless Computers by Endless Team

A few years ago, on a trip to India, we had an epiphany: If we ran a full desktop operating system on the inexpensive processors that power smartphones, and plugged them into the TVs people already own, we could make a computer that is affordable to more people.
