    This guy doesn't know what he's saying

    QT5 supports OpenGL/ES but does not make calls to X at all.X is going to be replaced remember?


    From qt-project.org:

    "Qt 5 enables highly sophisticated user experiences, offering applications the full capabilities of OpenGL/OpenGL ES graphics acceleration."

    http://qt-project.org/wiki/Qt_5.0

    From the earlier phoronix story, "MeeGo Tablet UX Can Already Run On Wayland?":

    "Qt-Lighthouse is the Window System Agnostic port of Qt. This means that Qt doesn't know what windowing system it runs on, but pushes this logic into plugins. In practical terms, this means that libQtGui will not link against xlib or any xcb libraries."

      Then piss off. Seriously, if you don't like Micael’s way he runs this site, just go away. Nobody is forcing you to stay here.
      I, for one, will stay here. Michael may not be a journalist, but unlike “tech journalism” of the past 5, 10 or so years, at least he does the busywork to dig through mailing lists etc.
      There is no other site I'm aware of that posts X.org, Mesa, … news as Phoronix does. OSNews came close at some point but then Thom Horvelda (or whatever the asshole’s name is spelled) took over the site and started to randomly ban people who didn’t violate the site’s rules (but simply disagreed with him), I was glad to find a new home here.

      PTS may be flawed, the RSS feeds may be too crippled but for my taste of FOSS news this site is still better than anything else.

        This is the worst "article" I have ever read on Phoronix. Micheal's articles may not be the best, but at least they contain useful information, this here is just pure ****
        Clearly the author has no idea what he is even posting about...
        QX11Info is actually been worked on: codereview.qt-project.org/#change,26714

        I will continue to read Phoronix since it does have lots of information I enjoy reading, but more of these terrible posts will definitely make me stop reading.

          Arial is rendered same in qtperf4 with native and raster on my PC.

            I've been looking for a means of getting some metrics of driver performance from Qt, can you tell me where I might subscribe to your newsletter^W^W^W^W find qtperf?

            google fails me, http://code.google.com/p/qtperf, just gives me an empty repository and there seems to be no obvious binary packaged by Debian.

                There is a link to a github repository under "External links" on the left side.
                If Debian is not a hard requirement for measuring driver performance, you will find a Gentoo ebuild here, an (out-of-date) Arch PKGBUILD here and openSUSE RPMs here.

                  As posted here, a lot of people are saying that if you don't like the "articles" (aka ranting blog posts), then leave. Between the blog posts and enough trolls to make slashdot look positively peaceful, that's a damned good idea. I stopped reading the posts long ago, but instead skipped straight to the forums, going back to read something if I felt the need. The next step is removing the RSS feed, and then finding the proper way to remove my profile from this site.

                      Arial is only one font. And it sucks under Linux anyway. It's not meant for FreeType.
