    Your ego just scored +10 kudo's for being such an overly bombastic intelletctual. Congrats! You win the big price!

    OK. Thanks for sharing. Not sure why it was relevant
    Yes, it shows... But I'll forgive you for mistakingly confusing the term workstation with production system. So now I'll enlighten thou soul:
    Fedora, not being suitable for anything workstation (given the current lacking state of FLOSS drivers), doesn't realy work that well for at least me and someone else. It periodically freezes at random time intervals where speed can be graphed out to system performance and responsiveness by inputdevices (although the 64x64 pixel cursor sprite blitting will statistically still work during that freeze).

    That said it fails as a workstation. Just becouse -you- are able to use it, it may not work for all of -us- Phoronix users.

    Crap! that lost you 20 kudo's for completely missing the point.

    You are now at -10 kudo's in total (given that I am the first one to use such a social phenomenon as kudo's here on the Phoronix forums - and for the first time ever).

        Making it work out as a workstation for yourself still isn't making it qualify as a workstation for everyone...

        But you lost your bombastic intellect Seriously, yo! It almost impressed me... Work on it

          gilboa, the fact that you said your employer lost $10,000 seems to make a strong argument that perhaps Fedora isn't great for a production workstation. Just sayin... You shouldn't blame ATI for that, since they explicitly don't support Fedora. The fault lies with either: a. the person who chose to use Fedora on that hardware, or b. the person who chose to buy that hardware for a Fedora system.

                I retract the previous post (I would have deleted/edited it out, but edit/delete doesn't work...).

                I still find it amusing that all of you see yourself fit to give definitive advise on what I (and my employer) should or should not do, even though you don't really know what I, or my employer do.
                But, as I was stupid enough to engage in such a useless exchange, let me end with this [1].

                  I have no idea what your particular situation was, nor do i really care. I'm just saying as a general rule, Fedora seems like a risky proposition in that role. Your story seems to back up that assertion rather than discrediting it. Every rule has it's exception, of course.

                    @gilboa:
                    I disliked you a lot less when you where being a overly bombastic intelectual, but now you have choosen to victem role tacting... How pathetic...

                    Notice that that xkcd you just linked to is actually funny since it is illustrating idiotic compulsive behavior in a recursive form. You just realised that you literaly made fun of yourself. Also, if you do have a bit of humor: the game.

                            Has anyone else noticed this getting back on Valve's servers?
