From the Blog

"One of my favourite PlayStation 5 features is the ability to stream games to other devices. Linux isn't officially supported for Remote Play, but I've been using an open source client that works well with a little configuration. Here's what I did to get it set up and streaming smoothly on Ubuntu 22.04."

Latest Note

After a decade of full time Linux use I’m getting to grips with Windows 11 for work and it’s… fine, actually. There’s window tiling and multiple desktops so I can keep my productivity habits, and WSL is pretty seamless for running a local dev environment. I’ve mapped my usual terminal keyboard shortcut to Ubuntu in WSL so muscle memory drops me straight in to a familiar environment ⌨️

It’s early days but I think the switch is going to be alright! 🪟
