Linux hardware vendor System76

  • Linux hardware vendor System76 introduces the Thelio Mira desktop

    Out for a brand new desktop from a true Linux vendor? System76 have a little something special announced today with their new Thelio Mira desktop powered by AMD Ryzen and NVIDIA.

    Thelio Mira can be configured with up to 128GB RAM and up to two NVIDIA RTX Quadro 8000 GPUs (traditional RTX / GTX GPUs also available). On the CPU side you're looking at either an AMD 3rd gen Ryzen 5 3600 or a 4th gen chip up to AMD Ryzen 9 5950X and you can configure the storage up to 36TB in total. System76 mention that with all the power and how much you can expand it the size is only "slightly" larger than the base Thelio model.

    "Thelio Mira rounds out the System76 desktop line with capacity for large, high performance GPUs and additional memory," says CEO Carl Richell. "Thelio Mira fits nicely between the base Thelio and HEDT Thelio Major models providing a new option for customers to design the perfect desktop for their needs.”

Introducing the Thelio Mira Desktop from System76

  • Introducing the Thelio Mira Desktop from System76

    While there’s already quite a few different Thelio-branded desktops to choose from on System76’s website, as of today we have yet another one: the Thelio Mira.

    The Mira sits between the base Thelio desktop and the Thelio Major in terms of size, cost, and upgradability. It bears a slightly larger footprint than the base Thelio at a dimension of 17.18″ x 9.96″ x 13.03″ (or 436.35 x 253 x 331mm), yet has the benefit of holding up to two graphics cards, versus the one GPU the base desktop can have.


    Like any other System76 device, the Thelio Mira can have Pop!_OS 20.10, 20.04, or Ubuntu 20.04 pre-installed as an operating system. The case comes in a walnut finish, but this can be replaced with birch (free), Dark Matter (adds $59), Martian Red (adds $59), or Neptune Blue (adds $59).

  • System76 launches AMD Ryzen-powered 'Thelio Mira' Ubuntu Linux desktop

    System76 started its life as a Linux computer seller only. Essentially, the company would sell re-branded laptops with Ubuntu pre-installed. To provide a class-leading experience, however, System76 also provided top-notch customer service, helping Linux beginners get started with a little hand-holding when needed. This focus on service continues today, and it is largely responsible for the company's success and longevity.

    Seeking to better control its own destiny, the company branched out from only being a computer-seller and transformed into a maker too. Its handcrafted Thelio desktops are powerful works of art, comprised of wood, metal, and good ol' fashioned American elbow grease. Yes, these Thelio machines are made in the USA -- Colorado, specifically.

System76 Releases New Thelio Desktop

  • System76 Releases New Thelio Desktop

    One of the most ardent supporters of open source hardware has released a new desktop machine for home or office.

    System76 is best known for their high quality Linux laptops and their boundary-pushing desktops. And with their Thelio line of desktops designed and built-in house, with open source firmware, bios, and OS, they hold a very high appeal to Linux users.

    The Thelio lineup is impressive and their newest entry to the lineup stands in between the base model, Thelio, and the next up, the Thelio Major. This new model, the Thelio Mira, has room for up to 2 GPUs, ships with either a 3rd or 4th gen AMD Ryzen, and can support up to 128 GB of RAM. So even with a small footprint (17.18′′ × 9.96′′ × 13.03′′), you’re getting massive power to do important (or not so important) work.

Things We Love About the New Thelio Mira

  • Things We Love About the New Thelio Mira

    Today, we introduce you to the newest addition to our Thelio desktop line: Thelio Mira. Our in-house engineers have been hard at work creating this pro solution for you, so without further ado, let’s get into the things we love about our new desktop:

    A Chimera of Size and Performance

    One day, we wondered, “What if expanded Thelio to support more memory and more powerful GPUs?” Our in-house science team quickly got to work, splicing the compact genes of Thelio and the performant genes of Thelio Major. Then they removed the extra limbs, and presto! Thelio Mira was born. This happy little test tube baby is configurable with 4th Gen AMD Ryzen CPUs, PCIe 4.0 NVMe storage, and up to 128GB of RAM.

    System76 launches its latest Linux-focused desktop computer called Thelio Mira. Pricing starts at $1,499.

    The Mira sits between the base Thelio desktop and the Thelio Major in terms of size, cost, and upgradability. It bears a slightly larger footprint than the base Thelio at a dimension of 17.18″ x 9.96″ x 13.03″ (or 436.35 x 253 x 331mm).

System76 Launches Thelio Mira: Premium Linux-Based Desktops...

  • System76 Launches Thelio Mira: Premium Linux-Based Desktops with AMD Ryzen 5000

    Leading workstation vendors offer Linux-based machines with the latest hardware inside, but those PCs are expensive and are not exactly home-friendly due to their expansive design. Meanwhile, buying a boutique desktop PC with Linux is somewhat tricky. Fortunately for Linux users, there are companies like System76, which just launched its Thelio Mira midrange system that can be equipped with a 16-core Ryzen 9 5950X processor and a leading-edge Nvidia Quadro RTX graphics card.

    System76 doesn't label the Thelio Mira as a workstation; instead, the company brands it as a professional desktop system. Yet the PC can pack an AMD Ryzen 5000-series processor with up to 16 cores, one or two Nvidia's Quadro RTX graphics cards (up to the RTX 8000 model), up to 128GB of ECC DDR4 memory, up to 4TB of PCIe 4.0 NVMe storage (using two M.2 drives), and up to 36 TB of HDD storage. Obviously, all the connectivity features that you would expect from a 2021 desktop are all there, too: Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.0, 2.5 GbE, USB 3.2 Gen 2, USB Type-C, and audio connectors.

System76 Adds Thelio Mira to Linux Desktop Line

  • System76 Adds Thelio Mira to Linux Desktop Line

    The powerful Thelio Mira runs Ubuntu-based Pop!_OS (or Ubuntu 20.04 LTS, 64-bit) and includes a carefully engineered cooling system “to prevent throttling and allow your pro-grade components to perform to their maximum potential.”

    Like other System76 offerings, the Thelio Mira also features handcrafted details, such as the solar system design of the exhaust vent and the stylized mountains on the powder-coated aluminum chassis.

  • How To Install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9 - idroot

    In this tutorial, we will show you how to install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9. For those of you who didn’t know, MongoDB is a high-performance, highly scalable document-oriented NoSQL database. Unlike in SQL databases where data is stored in rows and columns inside tables, in MongoDB, data is structured in JSON-like format inside records which are referred to as documents. The open-source attribute of MongoDB as a database software makes it an ideal candidate for almost any database-related project. This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the MongoDB NoSQL database on AlmaLinux 9. You can follow the same instructions for CentOS and Rocky Linux.

  • Self-host a Ghost Blog With Traefik

    Ghost is a very popular open-source content management system. Started as an alternative to WordPress and it went on to become an alternative to Substack by focusing on membership and newsletter. The creators of Ghost offer managed Pro hosting but it may not fit everyone's budget. Alternatively, you can self-host it on your own cloud servers. On Linux handbook, we already have a guide on deploying Ghost with Docker in a reverse proxy setup. Instead of Ngnix reverse proxy, you can also use another software called Traefik with Docker. It is a popular open-source cloud-native application proxy, API Gateway, Edge-router, and more. I use Traefik to secure my websites using an SSL certificate obtained from Let's Encrypt. Once deployed, Traefik can automatically manage your certificates and their renewals. In this tutorial, I'll share the necessary steps for deploying a Ghost blog with Docker and Traefik.
