DL Emails

We were corresponding with Yannick, a.k.a. the French guy from Switzerland recently and he brought to our attention the Raspberry Pi turning Raspbian into a complete desktop OS. We love when our listeners bring these cool projects to our attention and giving us some of the use cases for them. Here is what he has to say:

As for your last question : the Raspberry Pi Foundation took Raspbian – the awesome OS that runs on all of my seven Raspberry Pis 😀 – and turn it into a complete OS for PCs and Macs, and they named it Raspberry Pi Desktop – go figure…

It looks exactly the same as Raspbian, but runs on x86 architecture – and also x64 but there are no 64 bits ISO. It is definitely one of those “lightweight” distro. It runs super fast – even in a VM -, but it’s not really sexy.

The main advantage I see with that distro is the fact that I can test my programs – did I mention I am a Linux developer ? 🙂 – with the comfort of my PC before I transfer them to the Pi. That, and the fact that I can install it and make it run on my mum’s 10-year old laptop !

Anyway, you don’t have to take my word for it, go check it out by yourself !

Thanks again for your message and for the great show ! It’s always a pleasure to notice a new episode in my podcast app.

Cheers !

Hi,

Big fan of the show, i listen as soon as i can to each new episode.

I thought you would be interested to know that Linux is already dominant in the high end VFX world. I work for a small animation studio where Linux is the pro-dominant OS, but is the industry standard, not the exception.

There are several high-end products which work on Linux, including Autodesk Maya, Mudbox, Foundry Modo, Nuke, Davinci Resolve, Fusion, SideFX Houdini. The large VFX Studios including Pixar, Dreamworks, ILM, Weta also use linux. (CentOS is the main distro used, i heard ILM just switched to CentOS 7 from 6.).

While Video editing is still a mix of Mac/Windows/Linux, with linux being the weaker for video editing it is still possible to create high-end work from start to finish on Linux using industry leading software.

Also Ryan should try EXWM, i now use that after having used i3 for about 7 years.

Regards,

Richard
