New beginnings (Linux Format staff starts new venture)

  • New beginnings

    But it’s time to move on, and I’m sorry to report that this will be my last issue here at Future Publishing. Andrew Gregory and Ben Everard have also decided to leave, so it’s something of a new beginning at Linux Format Towers. I’ve had some wonderful times here, from interviewing Linus Torvalds and breaking the Raspberry Pi story, to challenging expectations with our ‘Learn to Hack’ and ‘Beat the CIA’ features, all of which I’m very proud of, especially in the light of recent surveillance revelations.

  • The Best Graphics Card Brands For NVIDIA/AMD GPUs As A Linux Consumer?
    One of the most frequent topics I'm emailed about is any brand recommendations among NVIDIA and AMD AIB partners for graphics cards. For Linux users, is there a particular brand preference for graphics cards? The short story is, no, there isn't one particular brand when selecting either a GeForce or Radeon graphics card that a Linux gamer/enthusiast should go with over another AIB partner. Over the past 12 years of running Phoronix, there has been no single AIB partner that superbly stands out compared to the rest when it comes to graphics card AIB partner brands like ASUS, Zotac, HIS, MSI, etc. They all work under Linux, rarely the AIB differences extend beyond the heatsink/cooler and any default clock speed differences, and I haven't seen one that's over-the-top crazy about Linux. I also haven't seen any major partner consistently put the Tux logo or other Linux markings on their product packaging, let alone incorporate any Linux drivers onto their CD/DVD driver media.
