is Wine with -O3 and -march=native a placebo?

For nerd purposes I’ve been trying to custom compile Wine to see if i can squeeze some performance out of it, i pulled out the -g flag and put in its place -O3 with march native. i don’t know how to benchmark properly to see if there at least a marginal gain, so idk if it is a placebo or not. tried to search for articles in...

I think the position of the moon and the sun and the relationship between the two has more effect

Yea indeed.. I try to get MS Office 2019 working.. Which is... challenging. Just installing msxxml6 & riched20 won't do it.

I'm going to move to Void Linux soon as well! I'm very excited.

But I did saw this simple ln -s (symlink) between the /etc/sv folder and /var/services. But who is maintaining / creating those runit files? The Void community? What if something is indeed missing?

Another reason to move to Linux ;P

Try Linux Mint with XFCE. I don't see this RAM usage issue at all. I have Firefox open with several other apps in the background again running XFCE with Linux Mint (Based on Ubuntu), it's using 1.9GB RAM total (thus below the 2GB).

You have the same problem with Steam already for years.. I mean you do not have a physical copy anymore. In fact if Steam is down, you might not be able to download, play or play multiplayer. So you own nothing and be happy - WEF.

I did thought you were crazy in the past indeed. Since digital is the future, right? It might still is, but for some reason all game studios, producers and distributors like ubisoft or steam just create bad software/games. Where you need 24/7 internet connection and doesn't allow you to own a digital offline copy of the product. It's not just games.

Nope.. Some games will fail to start if the "main" server is down or some authentication server or whatever server it nowadays might depend on. So even if you install a game now and let it rest of years, the changes it will start again over 10 years is very low. I'm not even talking about multiplayer, since multiplayer will be definitively broken by then. And LAN features are no longer implemented by game devs.

I do agree that gamepass will only make matters worse.

Some games might work fine, I mentioned "some" game will fail. Especially if they require you to login first to some kind of auth. server.

I think it also had to do something with Google Assistant that get replaced by LLMs, as stated in the article.

I think there will be a PC launch eventually.. Like always.

Well they should be afraid. I want a ARM Linux laptop as well. Or even better RISC-V! Yes plz.. THE WORLD NEED RISC-V, Yesterday.

Pidgin. That failed. Then we have matrix. That kinda failed. And now beeper?

I don't know..

melroy,

Well.. I said 'kinda failed'. Synapse is still way too slow. And the new dendrite server is still not up to spec. Joining large rooms is still gives me a headache. I can't easily protect DDoS or spam accounts. I was forced to basically close registrations my Matrix server. And Dendrite is not yet production ready which is a shame.. Don't get me wrong, I do like Matrix in general. I just hope my previous remarks are taken seriously by their devs.
