    The Last of Us’ first PC port is riddled with apparent performance issues / ArsTechnica · Wednesday, 29 March, 2023 - 15:16

PC Shaders go brrrrr

Naughty Dog says it is "actively investigating multiple issues" as complaints about graphical and performance issues continue to flood in following the PC release of The Last of Us: Part 1 on Tuesday.

The thousands of reviews on Steam —67 percent of which are negative, as of this writing—tell the tale of players facing massive problems simply playing the game they purchased. There is an overwhelming number of complaints about everything from frequent crashes and extreme loading times to "severe stuttering" during basic gameplay. Even with some positive reviews on the site supportive of the game's underlying console versions, others complain that the PC edition is currently "stuttering, crashing, and unplayable."

For ages now, every annual report on desktop operating system market share has had the same top two contenders: Microsoft's Windows in a commanding lead at number one, and Apple's macOS in distant second place. But in 2020, Chrome OS became the second-most popular OS, and Apple fell to third.

That's according to numbers by market data firm IDC, and a report on IDC's data by publication GeekWire. Chrome OS had passed macOS in briefly in individual quarters before, but 2020 was the first full year where Apple's OS took third place.

Despite the fact that macOS landed in third, it might not be accurate to see this as an example of Google beating out Apple directly. Rather, it's likely that Chrome OS has been primarily pulling sales and market share away from Windows at the low end of the market. Mac market share actually grew from 6.7 percent in 2019 to 7.5 percent in 2020.

    Passe-câble pas très pratiques

Les protections (#skins) de claviers #Typematrix comportent un trou pour faire passer le câble #USB vers le #PC, mais du coup si tu veux changer de « peau » il te faut retirer le #câble TOUT LE LONG… Imagine à tes débuts tu hésites et voudrais fréquemment changer…

Du coup j'ai préféré couper pour faire une « découpe ».
