    Me being able to watch 1080p mkv files on my core i7 with 4 gigs of ram and with an ATI 4850 card, without it lagging like hell every now and then. WTF! Trying to watch Star Wars here, but it just can't be done with s/g/mplayer.

        "The US bans software patents."

        This would be the most useful change for the Linux/open source world.

        As for the open sourcing id tech 4, that wouldn't gain us anything on short-term. Developing advanced games needs experienced and motivated developers.

          Get a cheap Nvidia card. Problem solved.

          If you can afford an i7 cpu, you can afford a good Nvidia card too.

            +1 for KDE migration to the trinity project!

            That and down with software patents.

                Well I bought the ATI for their "pro open-source ideas", just shoot me.

                    Well, I have a Core i3 300M CPU (the lowest possible i series CPU) and an HD4330 GPU (one of the cheapest, low performance cards) and using the open source drivers (no, not even catalyst) I have a perfect, lag and tear free 1080p playback. So I think you are having some configuration issues.

                      In a world where Gnash, a project with just a few developers, can have perfect fullscreen Youtube playback WITH GPU acceleration, people would be damn right to bitch about it.

                        yes it's not normal. I can play 1080p without problem (C2D E2160/RV770). I can also play 720p on XP2500+/768 Mo/Radeon 9800 Pro.

                          Apple users stop saying what's good for Linux - not everything is constructive criticism in the link you gave. There's a lot of bull. I won't blame Linux, because nvidia and amd makes crappy drivers or because not everyone wants to use crap like gstreamer etc. Very strange point of view. Shall we continue?

                            I always thought it made a lot of sense for Adobe to start moving out of Apple's clutches, by porting CS to a custom linux distro (possibly based on RHEL or SEL, like Maya did), with support for a limited number of hardware configurations.

                            I'm sure there are quite a few others who hate OS X, and the exorbitant Apple tax on the platform, don't trust Apple's imminent plans for the desktop space (like CS will run on some iOS mutation that panders to pop-culture techno-dweebs), and who would rather up their software investment instead of going broke on shiny designer boxes with bog-standard x86 guts.

                            By the same token, Apple would be wise to top blocking clones through legal force and stupid drm tricks. Then they might start to build some serious pc market share. I guess we'll probably have to wait for St. Steve to croak for that to happen...

                                - MSFT fcksup and fills in bankruptcy.

                                - AMD decides to launch a program "Hire the Desire" writing on major distribution forums. Program gathers huge sum of money - enough to hire 1000 developers for opensource driver for next 2 years.

                                - Intel launches CPU/GPU modules and replaces the usual socket for cpu with CPU/GPU modules sync&control chip (Athlon Slot A style).
