  1. In the last video chat Ross said that he is interested in seeing if WSL2/WSLg (WSL from now on) can somehow be used to replace Windows shell with some Linux DE. So that he would have some Windows-Linux hybrid. It probably isn't possible to use WSL as a full shell replacement like with other Windows shell alternatives. But from what I see, it is possible to run and display some DE as it's own application, so visually it's similar to virtual machine or remote desktop. As far as I know, WSL does allow running Windows programs from within the Linux environment. Not exactly sure how that is done and what kind of programs can be started. But it is there, and that makes WSL be much more fitting for creation of Windows-Linux hybrid than it would be say Linux running in VirtualBox using "seamless mode". Even if it is possible to get some desktop environment running well, there is still an issue of getting Windows shell out of the way, making it use absolutely minimum amount of resources, and re-implement the functionality in WSL desktop environment. There are many people with low-spec machines, so someone probably already stripped Windows 10 shell down to bare minimum, but there probably aren't many people who made WSL understand the full capabilities of the Windows host. Things like having XDG-Open point to Windows programs for relevant files and URLs, having shortcuts in Linux guest that open host's Control Panel or other settings, etc. I think that this idea of Windows-Linux hybrid is interesting, and should be explored further. Few relevant links that I found when doing a quick search about this topic: https://github.com/NathanCastle/BootShellCredentialProvider (looks outdated and abandoned) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8SuERIEJJUA https://github.com/microsoft/wslg https://sourceforge.net/projects/vcxsrv/
  2. 4 years later, many many new community chats have been released we need to find a technological solution to this, doing it manually would not be a good way to do it. Archive all Reddit threads with questions, archive recordings of Twitch chat, get some good speech recognition software and run it over the recording of chat, so that we at least work with transcripts instead of audio
  3. Interesting radial menu: https://github.com/Schneegans/Fly-Pie/
  4. Does anything here looks like an example of UI that Ross is looking for?
  5. There is this thing that has been appearing on my radar recently. I know that it's meant to be more as a joke or spectacle than an actual user interface, but maybe something actually usable will come out of it:
  6. Go glow in the dark in some deeper part of the internet
  7. I tested it out quickly and it seems that it requires you to click. Turbo mode is just "keep menu open only while I am holding shortcut keys pressed", so it closes instantly when you release the keys. But whole project is free and open source. I'm sure that if some of us went to tinker with it, we could make it behave similarly to the interface draft that you made.
  8. We need a central knowledgebase for everything related to the GUI Quest™. A place for proposed ideas, design guidelines for existing interfaces, links to experimental interfaces, list of abandoned concepts, etc. Someone on Reddit made a repo that I assume will be used for this purpose. https://github.com/HawaiinPizza/Ross-Good-Gui But if it won't then we should set up a different place where we can gather and present knowledge and ideas in a readable way.
  9. Is there anything we can do to help Ross with the issues he is encountering in Linux?
  10. Holy shit, I had no idea what was yet to come. Proton, Lutris, D9VK being merged into DXVK, a LOT of native games, many system-level improvements to game performace, etc. TImes are insanely good for us pengiuns.
  11. I believe that they will add AI in the future. But we will have to wait for more announcements to see what the game will have on release. I think that this game could be good for a play session with fans (of cournse if it gets reasonably low price or when it gets high discount)
  12. I agree, this game would be very good for play session with fans. Sadly the playerbase died off, so outside of the organised event the only way to see this game in action is by playing againtst AI.
  13. Is there a way we can add new video? I mean, there are January and February videos out, your site is still on December video.
  14. So different game next month? I watched the recording, and from what I see number of people in this play session is below 50, so like Ross said, this opens up many options for other multiplayer games. I would suggest Renegade X or Savage Resurrection. Both games are free. Renegade X can take safely take 50 players per server (makes it 25v25 match). Savage Resurrection can take 32 players per server (16v16), but also allows one player to play as commander who builds base and commands other players in RTS mode. I would love to be a soldier in Ross' army. Both games need a bit of tweaking to run on toaster computers, and both of them are not exactly bug-free. However both of them can provide incredible amount of fun in most cases. Example matches of those games: wNuS3_Um4kc yf8GVayBL88 I imagine that Ross would like them, but he probably hasn't even heard of them. Since his inbox is probably very much filled up, I won't send him any mail, but if anyone wants to point out my suggestion, I would be very grateful.
