100 Linux patches amounting to over fourty thousand lines of code was sent out today for review in order to provide "Vega 10" support within the Linux AMDGPU DRM driver.
Adding Vega support to AMDGPU is a big task due to all of the changes over Polaris and other recent GPUs reports Phoronix.
GUESS announces its ‘Connect’ Android Wear-powered smartwatches, coming later in 2017
Android Wear provides an easy avenue for brands to slap their name on a Snapdragon 2100 chipset and a battery… and call it a smartwatch. And that’s what’s happening once again with American fashion brand GUESS.

Android creator lost out on a big investment, and Apple may be to blame, report says
Andy Rubin, a co-creator of Android, lost out on a $100 million investment from SoftBank as Apple deepened ties with the Japanese investor, people familiar with the matter told The Wall Street Journal.
Rubin's company, Essential Products, is reportedly planning to release a new high-end smartphone this spring, and SoftBank planned to market the phone in Japan, the Journal said. But Apple subsequently agreed to commit $1 billion to SoftBank's Vision Fund, a move that "complicated" SoftBank's investment in Essential Products, the Journal reported Monday.

Assuming i should setup a raid 1. Should I get a temporary online backup and start from scratch then set it up the raid?

I mean without awful screen tearing of course. About five days ago I decided to get back into Linux since I've missed it a lot, so I dual boot zorin os. I tried every guide I could find all over the web for Ubuntu to set up bumblebee but I couldn't get it to work. Steam would return errors when I tried to launch it with optirun or primusrun. Though I could put in the command to launch a game after running steam and it would launch the game but it still wouldn't be using my nvidia GPU. I got prime to work fine but I don't wanna deal with awful screen tearing system wide and having to re log just to swap gpus.
Fast forward a few days and a few reinstalls of zorin os, I give up on zorin I've always wanted to try Arch out anyway. So I go for Manjaro. My experience with KDE has been awful. Booted up and had so many issues just trying to set my primary and secondary display, half the time one display wouldn't even show my desktop so I wasn't even able to try setting up bumblebee or anything on Manjaro.
Onto another distro, I decided I'd try Antergos and I picked cinnamon as the desktop this time. I had zero issues with setting up and using cinnamon, this time around went really well. So I start following the wiki to try to get bumblebee working, I try opening steam and launching rocket league with optirun or primusrun, still not working, still launching with my Intel gpu even though bumblebee didn't return any errors. What did work is launching steam (runtime) as a whole through primusrun and finally! Rocket league launched with my nvidia GPU with 0 screen tearing. It was an amazing feeling. Then I spent two hours trying to figure out why my ds4 controller wouldn't work, and try to figure out why steam was hard freezing to the point that I had to restart the computer every 5 minutes.
Can someone help me before I go mad? I've read that v sync can be accomplished with nvidia prime but it requires building your own x server abi or something like that so I don't even know where to begin to do that. If someone can point me in the right direction or give me any advice I would greatly appreciate it because I'm all out of ideas. I really want to use Linux as my daily driver, Arch especially but can't do it if I cant do some gaming every now and then.
Edit: forgot to mention that i was only able to do it successfully on antergos with steam (runtime), if i launched the native steam using the same method it wouldnt use my nvidia gpusubmitted by /u/shindiggitty
I'm doing a research project on smartwatch OS's and i was wondering about this question. I understand the whole you type commands in a language to get prompts or display images, but is there anything else that is crucial about data? It would be nice to know if there is anything else like bits, bytes, and all that jazzsubmitted by /u/CreeperKingMC
