If You Build It They Will Come!

Today I uploaded a behind the scenes view of my battlestation and specifically my PC I loving named ‘The Beast’. There were some unexpected comments on this video relating to some being inspired to switch to Linux after seeing it. One of the goals I’ve had is to show people that Linux is not just for reviving old machine but also for running the most powerful machines. Because the focus of the video wasn’t Linux, I didn’t expect it would inspire individuals to change, however, showing all the powerful audio and video equipment I have running on Linux did just that.

Seeing my videos inspire people to switch is one of the best feelings. I know how exciting it was for me to learn all the powerful features Linux has to offer and of course the community was just overflowing with positivity. The feeling of giving back to the community that has done so much for me is a powerful.

There are so many videos I want to release which I hope will further prove the power of Linux. This week I should be releasing another video on web and graphic design using Manjaro and Ubuntu Budgie that I’m so excited to share. It will also be the first time I officially talk about this website. If you build it they will come…we shall see about that.

On another note, the video itself was viewer requested from Twitter. The request was simple to show all the equipment that I have running on my machine. The problem is how disorganized my setup can be at times. Next to zero wire management and lets just say I had to do some cleaning before I could film. Additionally, it took a lot more time than I expected trying to remember all the various parts I ‘currently’ had in my PC. I upgrade so often I had to get a flashlight to read the model numbers on multiple components. Even the simplest videos seem to take hours to produce. Though looking back on the video itself you wouldn’t think it took more than 5 minutes.

At the end of the day, I really enjoyed sharing that video and happy a user reached out to request it. Some of the best videos I’ve done have been community recommended. So if you have an idea please don’t hold back.
