Fun fact: the pink is actually for Linus 😀
That was a nice touching moment at 14:38
"For a long time now we've talked about
how we're approaching the point where you could buy a single computer and have two users enjoy it simultaneously"
only if you could buy that computer
did I miss it, or he completely forget to mention unraid license fee?
My 3770k doesn't support NVME SSD's p,.,q
Albeit my 9900k&3950x both have 2tb 870's pros >,.,>
Linus, do Raid 1 next time. You don’t want to lose valuable family photos.
Great video, need more like this one
I guess it works well until you want to place some game that does not allow VM's
Appreciate the gender neutral ‘SO’.
So nobody noticed the Linus Windows Wallpaper at 3:02?
Math is wrong, 11:55 couples PC should be $3413 🙂

Hey linus you think u could make a vid about budget 1080p webcams?
double rtx and play fall guys
Why didnt linus wait for 3090?
I think this is kinda pointless… I would definitely go with two separate PCs, and one common network share – would be waaay cheaper to build, too.
Just to compare it with the table they presented there:
Phanteks Eclipse P600s – $220
SK Hynix Gold P31 1TB – $135
Ryzen 5 3600X – $210
G.Skill Trident Z RGB 16GB 3600 Mhz – $90 (kind of a well known fact: either go big with 3600, or go home with 2133/2400, there's no in between with third gen Ryzen)
RTX 3080 (when it comes out) – $700
Gigabyte B550 AORUS Elite AX – $170
Seasonic Focus Gold 850W – $155
Noctua U12A – $100
Total is $1780 per computer, $3560 for two. Keep in mind this can be made significantly cheaper by using a simpler case, simpler SSD, simpler memory without lights on it, Gaming X instead of AORUS Elite motherboard, cheaper PSU and cheaper CPU cooler – I suspect they built it out of this stuff just to advertise it, to fulfill their obligations to the manufacturers.
Still, that's $230 shaved just by switching 2 components, for which you can buy a $100 NAS and a 1TB SSD for it.
Ow this is really cool… 2 users 1 gaming rig ! 😁
wtf is a couples PC?!
VMs are not ideal since you have a pretty high chance to trigger some anticheat software, for example, on Faceit. Permanent ban is not a great gaming experience. And there still is a slight perfomance hit.
However, there are ways on Linux to create a truly parallel desktop experience for multiple users with one OS running on bare hardware, just with 2 graphical sessions, each with its own output and input. This guide is a little outdated though, but it can be done still, and obviously not only on Ubuntu.
how usb ports working on this with right user?
Make one pc for me😓…
