Best Linux Distros for the Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 AMD Gaming Laptop

The Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 comes with an AMD Ryzen 5 4600H processor and a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Ti (4GB) GPU. It sports superb 1080p display, and front-facing camera with privacy shutter. The laptop doesn’t come with an operating system pre-installed, which is usually a good sign that’s not tailored for Windows. The good news is that Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, FN keys (volume, brightness and mic control), GPU switching, and other essential functions work well with most distributions. Connecting to an external monitor via HDMI works too. The bad news is that the touchpad won’t work with many popular distros, especially those using a kernel version below Linux 5.10 LTS. Distros that work well and the touchpad works out-of-the-box without upgrading the kernel or applying any patches include Solus 4.2, openSUSE Tumbleweed, and PCLinuxOS, as well as Arch Linux-based distros like Manjaro Linux 20.2.1 and EndeavourOS. Distros that (unfortunately) won’t even start on the Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 laptop include Debian GNU/Linux 10.8 “Buster” Live, Linux Mint 20.1, elementary OS 5, KDE neon User Edition, and MX Linux 19.3 https://9to5linux.com/best-linux-distros-for-the-lenovo-ideapad-gaming-3-amd-gaming-laptop ................................................................................................ #opensource #technology #gamingonlinux #linux #news

A strange, super-powerful particle that's not truly a particle could have dominated the universe when it was just a second-old, releasing a flood of ripples that permeated all of space-time. Called oscillons, they would have been so energetic their "ripples" could have unleashed so-called gravitational waves, those vibrations in the fabric of space-time that are generated when monster black holes slam into each other. Future experiments to detect these early-universe gravitational waves could give us insights into the most extreme conditions that the universe has ever encountered. If this oscillon picture is correct, this is one potential mechanism for inflation to generate gravitational waves. If we then see those waves, we will get a view directly into the universe when it was under a second old. https://www.livescience.com/oscillon-particle-early-univrse.html ........................................................................... #space #science #nature #education #news
