I keep seeing stuff about future integration... is this a firmware update to existing hardware we're waiting for or new hardware with better general integration? :/
Yes, I run into problems when editing a video in Kdenlive due to lack of GPU. Once finished and saved, the output plays fine as its not then requiring Linux to play.
Yeah, this won't do everything, but, for me, it does 95% of what i want very very well. Its really light, the battery lasts all day, the screen is beautiful and personally i like the fact that i have separated out certain tasks to different machines - I will say this though, i wouldn't have taken the plunge if i hadn't first used one for an extended period - for me the clincher was the form-factor, the fact that it was silent (no fans) and the screen. My wife is a software eng. and she runs Android studio on it so running IDE's and the like will not be a problem, just like, i guess, Gimp isn't a problem. Problems only occur when you need to use graphics hardware, i.e. playing videos. more peoples experiences in this reddit thread
That is all very tempting but I was under the impression it was possible to do "full linux" with some sort of dual boot mechanism (which I haven't researched). I'd rather have a full system - despite the above scenario being exactly what I use for work at this point! What a PITA. I want to be able to do some STEAM if I have a capable machine, and use Mixxx (if I think it's decent enough to replace Traktor Pro 2). Dj software is the only thing I haven't replaced with Linux (tho the NI Audio 2 is supported in Ubuntu now). Sounds like a perfect holiday/commuter/work-from-anywhere unit, but not sure if (at this price) I wouldn't be better getting a Dell XPS 13 or even another X2x0?! Tho the keyboard is all but gone (and IDK if I can stomach the Retro 25 unit because $$$) Chum in the US is running all sorts but thru Crostini it seems. Sounds very happy though. Is also running PHPStorm etc, which is graphical, right? How does that all pan out?
I'm so tempted by this.. I've already got the Chromebook pixel 2015. Which is perfectly fine, but it's so damn heavy. I'm thinking if I can sell that for a decent price, to justify purchasing this :/
