        Funny how you can directly measure Linus' frustration and anger just by the volume of his speech.

                      @7:13 "all these cables" well there's your problem. Should have gone with bluetooth cards instead of USBs... well okay maybe in addition to USB but instead just use one cable to a USB hub per station for thumb drives. Also could have gone with wireless HDMI to remove those cables.... six editors one PC the second coming?

                                    You could have built six individual computers that could have done the job much cheaper plus one for LAN Storage. One of the things I never could convince my corporation was that buying one machine to cover all people (i.e. printers etc) means when it goes down all people go down. My corporation would buy a $1000 laser printer to cover 6 people when it could have bought 6 ea $100 dollar lasers to do the same job. The $1000 laser's workload would wear it out fast and it was down a lot, plus we all had to get up and walk over the where the printer was to get our work, many times standing in line. If all had individual printers we would not have had to get up so much and the duty cycle of the printer would have been reasonable, plus you could replace each printer individually if one was giving trouble. Plus, with printer sharing, if one went down that person could use some elses till he got theirs fixed or replaced.

                                                          No idea what they need 8K for anyway. Standard 1080p would be enough for the type of content they make, if you ask me. It's not like we are watching rich and colourful nature documentaries or something...4K, fine. 8K? They're just showing off ;).

After 4 cores, it's efficiency drops to like 30-40% with 4k x264. Adobe needs to work on this.
